Thanksgiving in Toronto

Happy Thursday! Christmas is just couple days away! Hope everyone's getting cozy at home.

This is a recap of our recent trip to Toronto during Thansksgiving. We were prepared for the Canadian cold! For those that didn't read my post on my Korea trip, we were mentally and physically not prepared for the freezing weather there and learned the hard way. We knew it could get pretty cold in Canada so I packed a petite friendly hooded down puffer coat from London Fog (it's 40% off right now! Only a few petite sizes left! Link below) and plenty of thick cozy sweaters.

 In Toronto, their Thanksgiving is in October, however the mall was packed when I went during Thanksgiving with many stores having Black Friday deals!

Also, there will be some drool worthy pics of some amazing eats we encountered during our stay, a must try for those foodies visiting Toronto.
Outfit Details:

My favorite all time Canadian brand, Aritzia had a Black Friday sale. With the Canadian dollar conversion rate in favor of the American dollar, I got this grey cashmere wool blend coat (here, it's still on sale right now) at almost 30% off! I wear it almost everyday now. I think it's so important to invest in quality stylish coats that you will wear time and time again.

Spilt Milk and Other Great Gifts for the Holidays

Happy holidays everyone. I love this time of year - even though it tends to get a bit cold. But to offset to dropping temperatures, there's an increase in holiday spirit!

I received this gift box from Spilt Milk and it's amazing! It's like nothing I've seen before and if you have a hard time finding a unique and creative gift for your friends (like me), look no further.

I love the whimsical and fun packaging. I got a really delightful and warm feeling as I was opening the package. My favorite is the Peppermint cookies and Creme Cotton Candy, which I happen to be stuffing my face with as we speak. The Christmas greeting card is hilarious, and I really love the thoughtful touch of adding in an air plant. I've been meaning to get a bonsai tree for a while now, but this air plant is a perfect first step towards developing my green thumb.

I've never received anything as unique as this gift box from Spilt Milk. All of the included products are carefully selected and really play well off each other. Check them out here - last day to order for guaranteed Christmas delivery is December 20th!

Safari Jacket with Cozy Scarf in Napa

Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I've updated. We bought a place and the move has been pretty hectic! It's slowly coming together and I can't wait until we organize and decorate everything.

We also went to Toronto for Thanksgiving, which I will post about in my next post, stay tuned!

Couple of weeks back, I visited Napa to get some last bit of Fall foliage and did a little bit of wine tasting. As it wasn't that cold, I wore a light safari jacket with a scarf. I recently bought high waisted jeans from ASOS and it pairs so well with boots, not to mention it really helps elongating my legs! I wore one of my all time favorite booties, the same I wore to London in this post.

Outfit Details: Zara Safari Jacket in Khaki (here), similar Ann Taylor scarf - currently 50% everything! (here), ASOS petite high waisted jean (here), Biala Ashton Wedge Bootie (sold out, but similar here)
If you've never heard of Rabeanco before, it was founded in Hong Kong and they source their leather from Italy. Their designs are simple yet elegant. It's high quality on a budget. I snatched this crossbody when I visit Hong Kong a couple months ago at almost 30% off! Check it out  here
