Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment. --Mark Twain

26 December 2009

Presents I have received, or bought for myself, that make me content at the moment:
Influence by MKA (b-day present from B) & Coach Brooke bag (Xmas present from S, my cousin)
A trip to Aritzia on boxing day- the sheer grey Wilfred top is something I've been hunting down since summer. Super glad I have it. (Not gifts, I bought these)
My first visit to Anthropologie, got myself two pieces. It was very difficult to take a photograph of the black tunic. Pity, it's so lovely. (Another BD purchase, this time from ma mere)

[+] Anthropologie reminds me of a delicate and feminine Urban Outfitters, but with more expensive items. I'd really love a duvet from there.
[+] Boxing day is fantastic if you're going to places that don't pack to the max aka malls. I ended up going to Don Mills and it was so lovely, and pretty quiet.
[+] I still really want a Nikon D3000, but they are sold out at Futureshop & Bestbuy. However, I saw the floor model at Futureshop today and the lens length really turned me off. I don't fancy carrying around a big DSLR camera. It's so inconvenient, especially for someone as small as I. I'm most likely going to settle for a really good digital camera with special DSLR functions. Any suggestions? I've been looking into these:
[+] I got 'A Year in Fashion' as one of the surprise gifts from my family. It is so gorgeous. I like plopping the book open on..say today's date... and seeing the lovely picture they have. Very inspirational.
[+] I was going to take a photo of all the stuff I got.. but that feels so weird. I need to stop watching youtube X-mas Hauls from make-up gurus. They make me do odd shit.
[+] I got a parka for winter.. because it's EFFIN' cold in Canada. Well.. sometimes. It was lovely today. I wish we had snow on Xmas day this year. The rain washed it away. Anyway, I took a picture of myself in it. It turned out... silly. I will not post it on my blog but check it out here if you want- it's hilarious I know, but it keeps me warm (note: the parka is bigger than me). This picture is for my true readers, those of you who actually pay attention to what I write and not just the pretty pictures I post. *-*
[+] I got the special feature HP 6 DVD!! Big deal for me - Tom Felton is on the cover. <3

I'll catch you lasses later,

FTC: All these items were bought by either myself, or I received them as gifts from my family  and friends. I am not affiliated with any of these companies. 


  1. Wow, lovely gifts....I also got Influence for xmas! Can say I was most definately chuffed. You bought some neat clothes, im sure you will wear them well.
    Hope you had a fabulous day!

    p.s. I sincerely enjoy reading your blog and not just for the pretty pictures ;)

  2. Sounds (& looks) like you got some fabulous gifts!!
    Ahhh i really want a canon g10 too!! or g11 - haven't made my mind up yet!

  3. I think Santa should hire you to pick out my Christmas gifts for next year...! Also, I just started reading Influence today. What do you think of it?

  4. I know Belle I just checked out the G11, but I don't like the fact that you can flip the screen out. I want it integrated into the body of the camera like the G1O.


    And to Alyssa: So far I think the photos are amazing =P That's all I've seen atm!

  5. Glad you like the book <3. I also got HP 6 for Christmas! I love the bag S got you its awesome! Can't wait to hit up Anthropologie myself!

  6. Ooh I love your parka so much (& no, I didn't just look at the picture, I read the whole thing!). I had a perfect parka last year, but it got stolen so I bought a super lame one this year that I am embarrassed to wear. I love it when the fur is SO huge and not just ugly scrawny hair (like mine this year).


  7. luv all the gifts & your purchases, especially the bodysuit & flower-skirt. I must check out the Don Mills plaza, I hear the reno was awesome!

  8. i wish i could have the influenze book!!!=)
    you're so lucky!
    love your gifts!!=)

  9. I got a Nikon D3000 for Christmas! And that book is awesome, isn't it?

  10. lovely gifts ! come see what I bought ;-)

  11. Oh, I like your blog ...and your taste - I bought the same sheer grey top from Aritzia, and on boxing day too!.

    (I think I also feel extra kindred - also posting from Toronto)

  12. I love all of your presents..beautiful things.

  13. awesome purchases and perfect gifts =)
    Your cousin has great taste ;)

    Merry "belated" Christmas
    and a Happy Holiday to you and your loved ones!

  14. Love seeing these shot. Hope you had a Lovely Christmas. Great scores from the sales

  15. Urban Outfitters and Anthroplogie are the same company so that could be why you get that feeling. ;)
