December Favourites

Here are the things I’ve been using and loving this month.


Fairy lights :I love the ambience fairy lights create in a room and could leave them up all year.  In fact I do keep some in the balcony herb garden.  When I string them around my antique wood wardrobe in the Winter, it transforms into a magical wardrobe (with an imaginary door to Narnia).



Candle: Bath and Body Works Holiday candle in Twisted Peppermint is a candy cane/vanilla scent that makes the house smell like Christmas.


Christmas Carols

Music:  I still have my childhood piano Christmas sheet music and love reminscing by playing some of the classics like The First Noel and Angel We Have Heard On High.



Bath Time:  I can’t live without my evening bath and Lush Christmas bath bomb collection has so many yummy scents like Cinders with cinnamon essential oil and pop rock candy that, when in the bath sound like a crackling fire!



Hair Care:  What better when you’re in the bath than to apply a thick hair masque to moisturize and repair hair. The steam from the bath will help it to infuse the masque deeply into hair. I’ve been loving this masque by Organix. Keratin strengthens hair and protects it from heating tools like flat irons and blow driers.

Dessert: Disaronno Amaretto..mmm,mmm!  amaretto sours,  in a rock glass with ice or a nice shot in my decaf. What can I say, I love this almond liqueur.

Reading Socks:  OMG, these are SO comfy, lined in the softest chenille. I will be wearing mine while cozying up on the couch with my latest edition of Food Magazine or my new Harry Potter collection. –

Warm Me Up: I’m so loving the calming effect of this tea.  A perfect before bed blend with apple, lemon balm, mango, apricot, mint, vanilla and sweet sleep inducing valerian. zzzzz…  and to all a good night.



Skin Care: I love these face masques and always pick up a few during a trip to Shoppers Drugmart.  Nothing more luxe than giving myself a facial once a week and these come in all different types of skin needs : moisturizing, pore cleansing, tightening.  The Strawberries and Yogurt is one of my faves and each one is enough for 2 uses which make them a deal since they’re only $5 for 3 masques.


Until next month!
