This past weekend was freezing cold on the West Coast because the Arctic Front paid us a visit. We had a low of -17 degrees Celsius with windchill – Yikes! But even though the air was cold as ever, we were lucky to still have the sun shining through most the day. To bundle up for this Canadian winter weather, I bundled up in my khaki parka, wool scarf, and cable knit sweater.
How was Black Friday for everyone? I actually didn’t do any clothes shopping on the exact date because most of my money and attention went towards home products and electronics. Now that Cyber Monday is amongst us, I have a few more new sales and coupon codes to share at the end of this post!
To all my American Readers, I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving with good food and company! After the Turkey is done and consumed, how many of you will be up early/not sleeping for Black Friday? I’m definitely going to be camping some sites when midnight strikes and I’ve made plans to shop with friends at the crack of dawn. Scroll down to the end of this post for a list of my most anticipated sales!
One quirky fact about me is that I’m a devoted movie fanatic. Whenever there’s a movie in theaters that I absolutely love, I watch it multiple times until it is no longer showing. I did this in the past for Batman : The Dark Knight, the final Harry Potter movie, and Les Miserables. This weekend, I did the same for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as I watched it two nights in a row. This entire film is filled with both visual and emotional intensity and I can’t stress how amazing Jennifer Lawrence’s performance was. I think I may go for a third round!
Due to scheduling conflicts, my company Holiday Party was a month earlier than usual this year. This was the first business party that I’ve ever attended and it certainly did not disappoint! To dress for this Holiday occasion, I pulled out my velvet blazer and my bow tie – my two “dress to impress” pieces.
