Gifting from the Poor

Lets be real, as much as we love the people around us, we still try to cut corners when it comes to gifting on Christmas. You would think after 10 years of present shopping that you would be a pro at picking presents for anyone! NOPE. If you’re like me and still having problems finding a reasonable-not-so-cheap-but-cheap gift, look no further! Heres are some gifting ideas under $50. If thats too high of a budget go on Pinterest and find a good D.I.Y Christmas gift. Remember, its all about the packaging 😉

Happy Holidays!

You can never go wrong with a scarf shawl. The bigger the better.

Hand Complex

We all have something to complain about when it comes to body imagine. One of mine would be my hands. Yes they’re tiny and yes I have sausage like fingers. Even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal for some, I’ve always envied those gals (and boys even) that have long slender fingers that could reach every chord on the guitar.
That’s probably why I never learned any instrument properly haha.. not

Well here they are for the world to see! *patontheback*

Grinch 2014

Already creeping to the end of 2014. Time seems to fly a lot faster than when it did when I was a kid…

I still remember how exciting playing in the snow was! Building 5ft forts and tobogganing down a steep hill, drinking hot chocolate fast enough so the marshmallow doesn’t FULLY melt, eating icicles just bc everyone did it, everywhere became a playground.

Maybe it’s just age or my lack of enthusiasm for whether anything below freezing, but winter kinda sucks! You start to have responsibilities of shoveling snow (not that I do since I live in an apartment), driving in the mucky slushy snow (not that I have a car or anything), or having to commute to work/school every morning (not that I do that everyday lol).

Getting into the “Christmas spirit” is due to the reminder thats everywhere on ads and obnoxious mall decorations.. Even then, they kind of killed it for me knowing that it’s all just marketing strategy.

Did I become a Grinch?

BUT. Having said all that, I love Christmas. It’s a time where people seem to just relax.. Where time slows down and people are just friendlier when presents are involved aren’t they?

We visited Christmas at the Distillery District here in Toronto, just some quick photos I took for viewing pleasure 🙂
