A Weekly Update !

Exams !!!! AHHH and papers. These two unfortunate requirements for obtaining a bachelors degree are causing me significant stress lately. This week has been full of writing and cramming as well as some fun in between!
Monday was spent working! Then exploring winners where I got a super cute fur throw for my bed! Stay tuned a home improvement hall is coming soon!
Tuesday Wednesday and today where spent writing. All day and night. The only negative thing about being a history major is the sheer amount of writing you have to do. 

Weekend plans:  More studying and crazy fun with friends! 
Heading out to a football game! Its the finals for my friend's brothers team so we are going ready to cheer our lungs off
Possible choices baking being done this weekend as well. Stay tuned for a blog post.

Things I'm loving this week 
1. This lavender oil: it smells so good and is ultra relaxing 
2. This Lush Bathbomb: no other words but pure heaven. Super sweet to slip this into your bath.
3. Starbucks dark roast coffee!

Songs on repeat
1. Something to Believe in by King Creosote
2. Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran 
3. The South by The Cadilac Three

New thing to try
1. Heard about the Vancouver German Christmas market! Hopefully going to head down soon to check it out!
2. New Westminster heritage homes tour!

Super Easy Christmas Crunch Bark !

One of the best things about Christmas is the sweats that go along with the holiday. I was at a friends cabin celebrating the new year last year and the Christmas goodies were starting to come out. This yummy Christmas crunch treat stuck out. Supper yummy a not too sweet it is so addictive 
1lb of white cholate 
1tsp of oil 
1/4 cup of craisins
4 cups of Golden Grahams 

Melt the chocolate and the oil together on a low heat. Add the craisins and the cereal. Pour the mixture into a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze overnight and then break it apart!

This bark is super yummy and super easy to make. You will be a hit at Christmas bake sales and holiday parties.

Happy Holidays!

3 Places To Buy Sweaters This Winter

This super cute store carries trendy sweaters that are extremely warm. Great colour variety and cheaper prices make it a score in my books. The sweaters seem to last as well (as long as you follow washing instructions) I will often load up on newer sweaters from here at the beginning of the season and they keep me warm all winter! They have a huge selection of styles and quality ranges making them ideal for a mass amount of people. This cute grey one is super soft and comfy. The oversized like look makes it super on trend. This cosy cashmere one is super funky with the tie sleeves!

This store is my holy grail during the winter. Their sweaters are warm and washable and last for years. I have at least 10 sweaters from here and they have never done me wrong. The gap also has frequent sales (which is always a plus in my book) you can often get their products for 30-40% off. This longer sweater will keep you plenty warm during this cold dyas. And this red cable knit is a great spin on the classic jumper.

If you're looking for sweaters that will stay in your closet for years this is the place to go. The quality of these sweaters is amazing. But you pay for that quality. It is worth it for me, I am a colder person and I rely on sweaters to remain unfrozen in the Vancouver temperatures. The wool they use is top notch, just make sure to follow the washing directions. I have had several sweaters from there last me easy 5 years. Wath for burst sales as they often have weekend deals. This grey sweater is super classic and will fit nicely into almost any outfit. 

Hope this helped you out!
