Hello guys! So I’m going to start a thing on this blog. Each month, I am going to write a post about the things that I highly recommend. This January, winter is on it’s full blast. In fact, it says on the news that North America is colder than North Pole this week and I happen to live in Canada so yes, the weather has been really crazy. When the weather gets really cold and dry, I exert more effort in taking care of my skin. So for this month, I listed down some of the things that keeps my winter a little bearable and hopefully you guys would like it too.

This might be a week late but I want to greet everyone a Happy New Year!! I hope your year is off to a great start. Mine started pretty awesome. I finally started one of my 2017 obsessions and that’s to recreate our living room. Good thing my husband is up for it this time. We bought a new coffee table, ordered a brick wallpaper and bought new decors for the area (I promise to share it with you once it’s done). The weather last week was awesome and it was the perfect time to go home shopping. And since I know I needed to be pretty flexible, I chose to wear something simple and basic.

I am, undeniably, a 90s kid. I still know almost all of Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys songs by heart. My father used to buy me tapes of solo artists and bands I saw on MTV and I am proud to say that I still own a cassette player until we moved to Canada. I enjoyed my childhood that much that’s why I find it fascinating that the fashion industry are bring back some 90s trend. It’s like bringing back a part of my childhood. One thing that I didn’t saw coming is the return of denim overalls. I used to hate wearing those as a kid but I’m actually excited to wear it again.

Winter has officially began and no amount of layers can keep me warm anymore. It is what it is and I don’t really have a choice but to bundle up. Oversized and bulky sweaters are my best bet as we are down to -27C my dear friends. Actually, I didn’t even know I have one until my sister posted a selfie on her Instagram story haha! If I am not mistaken I bought the sweater during my trip in Toronto. My sister also gave me an oversized coat for Christmas which I think is a perfect match.

Boxing day is one of my favourite holidays (and yes I consider it a holiday haha). All I wanted was to buy a new coat and new shade of lippies. And guess what? I was not able to buy a coat! I bought make up products instead. I find make-up products a bit pricey and I only get to buy new ones on days like my birthday and boxing day so I thought.. my coats are still in good shape lol.

Ever since I was a kid, I always looked forward to decorating for Christmas. Now that I live in Canada, one of the things I love to decorate is our mantel. The fireplace has also become my favourite spot during winter. That’s why I was pumped when Wayfair Canada asked me to share how I decorate our place for Christmas. I had a few ideas in mind, but in the end I came up with a minimalist theme.

As you all know, I am trying this ketogenic lifestyle and I love it. I enjoy cooking healthy home cooked meals and I love experimenting other recipes as well. It’s a little hard looking for a recipe that is keto friendly because some condiments that I usually use has sugar, even flour is not considered keto friendly because it has starch. I found some good stuff online which I am about to share below. I’ve tried most of them too and really enjoyed it.

There’s no doubt that sweater is a must have this season. Sweaters are probably one of the first thing you look for when colder season comes in. But like every other basic, it can be dull and boring once you start wearing them almost everyday. I don’t like wearing the same top all the time but since it is too comfy, I can’t let go of sweaters just yet. So I found a few ways to style this staple and what’s best is that I don’t need to buy new clothes… just have to dig deep in my closet and create a mess out of it lol

Velvet dresses are back in style again, especially this winter. It’s fabric gives a sophisticated and festive look which makes it as a definite staple in my wardrobe. I wore this black velvet dress during my husband’s Christmas party at work. Dresses with corsets are also becoming a trend again, and I love it because it gives a little flirty vibe. Now, the accessories. I was shopping at Forever 21 when I saw this gold necklace, which I think matched the dress. The gold headband also created a new vibe on the outfit.

“You are beautiful no matter what size you are in.” This is what I tell myself everyday. For so many years, I have grown to be the person who loves and accepts their body. To let no one make me insecure. Believe me, it was quite a process. I have always been the fat kid.. I can’t even think of a day I wasn’t. Loving the body I have is one thing, keeping that confidence is another story.
