And just like that January is gone and February in all it’s candy heart glory is here! Sappy? Yes. Commercialized? Definitely. Fun? Absolutely! Despite the gushy, over the top romanticism of the day, I love Valentines Day. A day to celebrate love in all it’s forms – yes please. One of my favourite ways to celebrate the month of love, is with a Galentine’s Soiree. As a single woman well into her 30s, my girlfriends are my everything. My chosen family. The ones who support me, love me and cheer me on. Without them, I’d quiet simply be lost.
There is so much I love about the Holiday Season, gathering with friends and loved ones, the food, the cocktails, finding that perfect gift and then wrapping it up in a fun and creative way. Over the years I’ve shared many of my favorite ways to wrap presents for loved ones, so I thought I would pull them all together for quick and easy access. With gift wrapping made easy, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy time with family and friends.
I haven’t worn a watch in over 15 years! When the Guess Watch I got as my sweet sixteen birthday gift died, I just never replaced it. At first I felt naked, it’s absence was palpable. But slowly, overtime, I forgot and just got used to not wearing a watch. This was also around the time cell phones became like appendages, so it’s not shocking I didn’t miss it.
Earlier this year though, I began to feel like I might want to finally replace that Guess Watch. But there were so many choices – I loved rose gold, but would I tire of it? Then I discovered wood watches. They were a little rustic, yet still elegant. They were trendy, but classic, something that would stand the test of time, get it, the test of time 😉
