I feel like it's been forever since I've worn a skirt!!
When my boyfriend was taking these photos he informed me that it's been a while since I've worn a skirt on the blog. I didn't realize it and it's totally true! I think the whole thing had to do with the fact that I didn't want to admit that it's winter and I have to wear tights. I know what you must be thinking... you're not wearing a coat... you must be freezing! I swear, it was a warm day! Also my scarf from Oak+Fort is keeping me nice and toasty! 
I went to their grand opening here in Calgary a week or so ago and I saw this beauty of a scarf all rolled up and I wasn't expecting it to be so beautiful! I loved it so much I got it for a special someone for Christmas too. 

Also I thought I'd give an update on my gym going... I've been trying to go at least 3-4 times a week and I feel really good. I actually enjoy going and running again. I also feel much more energetic and less tired. I want to thank you all for all your comments on that post! I read each and every one! Glad to know were in this together ladies!

Have a great Wednesday! 

weekend greys

Oh Mondays.. what will I do with you? 
I seriously cannot believe the weekend has already come and gone. Although it's gone, I was so grateful for the mild weather we had. Seriously, I was in this little jacket all weekend... in November... in Alberta?! Shut the front door....
In true Alberta fashion though, it cannot stay beautiful forever. By this Friday it will be a low of -26 UGH. I just keep thinking about sitting on a beach in Barbados ( Just under a month.. but who's counting?). 

In other news, I did some Christmas shopping on the weekend! I've been trying to get better by shopping early and so far I've been pretty successful getting stuff done. A highlight of the shopping trip was getting approached by a reader! it's only happened to me a few times but each time it happens it makes me so happy! I love to know that I have readers out there! So thank you so much if you're reading this!!

jewelry: c/o: foxy originals 

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of jewelry.. especially when it's gold!
I was just recently introduced to Foxy Originals a few weeks ago and I'm a huge fan already. Not only are their pieces made entirely in Canada but they're made by two passionate business women who  initially met at university. They went from selling it on campus, to festivals and events to now having a super successful business across Canada, The US and around the world! Their pieces have been featured in magazines and on celebrities such as Sienna Miller and Lauren Conrad! 

When they approached me to showcase some of their jewelry I was beyond excited because it was exactly my taste. The lovely ladies at Foxy Originals want to gift one of my readers with either the shorter or longer necklace! 

All you have to do is enter below! The contest runs until November 29th!
