Distillery Christmas Market

What an amazing weekend! I decided to close the shop Sunday ( yes take a day off finally!) and we decided to go to the Distillery Christmas Market. Lucky there was no line (apparently on Sundays it goes around the block). It costs $5 to get in but only on weekends. It was extremely busy but oh so worth it. There was so much to do and so much to see. London was in heaven which meant that I was in heaven. I was just happy to have some quality time with my hubby and daughter. We had hot chocolate and apple cider. London went on the carousel for the first time. That was a huge hit. We were even given a Rudolph nose as we entered the park which made London laugh very hard every time I put it on. (it would not fit her tiny nose) I recommend seeing the pink trees. The big christmas tree reminds me of the one in NYC at the Rockerfeller centre. Im very happy we got a chance to go, I was afraid I was going to miss it this year, and with London only being a toddler once, I want to make sure she gets to experience everything. Make sure you get down there before they close. The last day is Thursday December 22nd 2016. The Christmas market is closed Mondays but Distillery district is still open. Tuesdays is pets day and they recommend you take double strollers during weekdays (due to larger crowds on weekends). They are open from noon to 9pm (10pm Fridays and Saturdays).

London has changed so much, she is like an actual little mini human roaming around (not a little baby anymore) She likes to shop now, she will pick up stuffed animals, toys, and even clothes. She likes to feed Kevin and I. She even gives us kisses at the same time which is the sweetest thing ever! I am crazy about her #familygoals

I heart H&M!

How adorable does London look today? I got these overalls for her at H&M for $29.99. They had so many cute things I was like OMG!!! 

I am not going to lie to you, I have a little bit of a shoe problem when it comes to London and I. I have issues. I can't stop. Am I creating a little monster in my daughter? She literally copies every little thing I do. Hey, at least we look cute!

Lookbook

Our first look book is complete!! I am happy to say thank God this week is over! What a stressful experience. I never thought 12 pictures, and 12 little descriptions would be so difficult. Anybody who has said this is easy has obviously never done it. This is all very new to me. I am however, extremely happy with the way it came out (thank you Tony Smith!). It was hard narrowing it down to only 12 items as I have hand picked everything myself. Every piece is special. Every piece in our store in handmade, and has a heirloom quality about it. Our items are meant to last, meant to be passed on from generation to generation. The whole concept of our store is to stay away from anything that is mass produced, plastic, and yes things that are made in China. I have made a conscious effort to support local talent and carry as many things as I can that are made in Canada. There is a link to our look book at the bottom of our website or you can click right here. Please have a look and let me know what you guys think. It is perfect for the holidays!
