SHOEBOX PARTY!

December 1st means it’s the time where we all say ‘Oh shite!! I better start my Christmas shopping’. I make lists on top of lists of gift ideas to buy for friends and family, yet every time I go to the mall, I seem to only think of what to buy for myself. I better not be the only one who does this!! Lol. It is so easy to be selfish but it is even easier to think of others this Holiday season. I wanted to make this season more about giving and less about the getting. I hosted a Shoebox party last weekend with some friends and family, and I know what you’re thinking ‘WTH is a shoebox party?’. No, it is not a party where we drink and dance with shoeboxes. It is a party where you fill up shoeboxes with goodies for homeless or risk of homelessness women. Since I live in Toronto, these shoeboxes will benefit women in the GTA. Thank you to my friends and family who helped out and donated!! We were able to make 12 boxes.

The Shoebox Project

 We all spend so much over the holidays and some people get absolutely nothing. It takes less then $50 to help out others who are less fortunate then us. I hope this inspires you to find a local charity and give to others this holiday season. Other then the Shoebox Project, you can sponsor a family for Christmas who cannot afford gifts for their children, or hand out Timmy’s gift cards and mittens to men and women on the street. Whatever it is, YOU can make a difference this Holiday Season.

Merry December!

In the past week I have bought 3 bralettes, two of which look pretty much the same. I think it’s safe to say that I’m obsessed. It’s hard not to buy them when they are so damn cute and a ‘lil sexy. I love the idea of wearing a lingerie inspired look where you can ever so slightly see the lace; hence the title of this post.

One look I love is wearing a white shirt with the first few buttons undone, denim, jewelry and some lace up sandals. There are a couple ways to change up this look depending on what you’re doing. Add some sneakers and shorts for the day or pop on some red lipstick, stacked rings and heels for a night out. Be sure to check out my Instagram in a couple days to see the looks in action!
