618. Blogmas Day 12 & 13 | Cactus & The Nutcracker

Christmas Nadege Gingerbread Train
I am now fully into the Christmas spirit! Well maybe 90% there. I will be fully once I have the rest of my Christmas gifts and outfits sorted out..
Every year, for the past several years, I always buy a lot of Christmas things from Williams Sonoma and Nadege. Then all the wrapping supplies and extra stuff from Papyrus. I love the Christmas chocolate cards from Nadege as I think they make the best gifts..but I've never tried any myself. Last year I bought a few and gave them to random people I knew (that I would run into) as a nice surprise, as I would always carry one around. I might do it again this year/next week.
& I'm really excited to make this gingerbread train!

Last night I went out with my friend to Cactus Club for dinner then we sat and talked in our lobby for awhile. Tonight I went to watch The Nutcracker (possibly my 4th year in a row seeing it? lol) with my company as our annual Christmas event!

617. Blogmas Day 11 | First Snowfall

City Hall Christmas Toronto
Yesterday we had our first snowfall of the year here in Toronto. I was so happy and it immediately got me into the Christmas spirit (finally). It was a magical night. My favourite night so far this winter. I wish we could have snow without the cold though..but I'm really grateful for where I live and not having to commute everyday hahah. I will be hibernating indoors (in the PATH) for most of the winter! It was fun to walk all around in the freshly fallen snow..

Dinner at Hokkaido Santouka, which I thought my boyfriend chose because of "Hokkaido" in Japan (a snowy/ski destination) lol. Apparently I was just thinking too much into it.

hot chocolate
Then we got back to my place and I made personalized hot chocolates and we watched Planet Earth (my favourite!!)....that I hope we will be able to experience in person next year. By the way - I don't usually like hot chocolate that much but the best is this one, from Williams Sonoma:

616. Blogmas Day 9 & 10 | Make my wish come true...

gold balloon dog
My weekend was not very eventful at all. Yesterday I went out on an attempt to find my Christmas and NYE outfits, and to start my Christmas shopping. I failed on both. The highlight of my day was probably being given this toasted marshmallow. Which, now that I think about it, was also my lunch.

wahad hummus
Tonight, my friend and I went to a hummus restaurant "pop-up" that her friend invited us to. We ordered enough hummus to last us for days. I must say it was the best hummus I have ever had!! It was a fun night and good to get away from our usual financial district vicinity hahah
