Christmas Came Early

This morning, I ran out of the house in my pyjamas as soon as I found out that the package from my best friends has come! I was truly ecstatic & extremely grateful for having the friends that I do. This could not have come at a better time to cheer me up, and tear up, at the same time. Merci beaucoup mes meilleurs amis!

Nordstrom’s changeroom’s waiting room (got that?) is extremely posh! I suppose they have done right in making sure the husbands and boyfriends are waiting in comfort, or broke girlfriends like I.

Straying away from my usual black and loose fitting clothes results in this. For a more refined side of my style, I wore a bright jumper with a subtly coloured button down and a pair of classic jeans. To escape a rather ‘basic palette’, the addition of a statement necklace gives an interesting neckline. Brown, leather accessories are a must in any woman’s closet to finish off an outfit.

Have you finished Christmas shopping yet? If not, good luck on those long line ups!

Jamming & Nomming

Winter season is best season for spicy cravings and what’s better than tteokbokki, which is Korean rice cake with sweet, red chili sauce, and kimchi pancakes? But no Korean meal is complete without traditional beverage: makgeolli for a first.

My friend suggested we go to Don Day, a quaint Korean restaurant on 7th Ave in downtown Calgary. The setting struck me a little because it was if I was immediately transported to Korea, that is judging based on what I’ve seen from K-dramas. Need I mention that K-pop music was playing and oppas were our cooks? In short summary, this has been the most authentic and best tasting Korean food I’ve had in Calgary! I will definitely find myself coming back for more.

Perhaps I couldn’t wait for another Friday to come that I’ve resorted to casual attire. I am absolutely in love with GAP’s supersoft tees. I went a little crazy two weeks ago when I bought a couple pieces. They are so comfy and easy to wear. Highly recommended!
