Merry Christmas!

Wishing all of you a wonderfully happy Christmas! Thanks, as always, for making time in your busy day for a little White Cabana!

I’m taking a few days off from blogging to spend time with my family, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see an update. I’ll leave you with one of my favourite Christmas Cabanas this year:

The Friday Five: Paper Christmas Trees

Last week, I shared five black and white Christmas trees. This week, I’m sharing five paper Christmas trees. Who will be doing a bit of DIYing this holiday?

The Friday Five: Black and White Christmas Trees

Earlier this week, a colleague asked me if I had a white Christmas tree. Truth revealed – while I do have quite a few white ornaments, I mostly embrace a traditional green and red colour scheme at Christmas. I keep my decorations tame, but I do not shy away from these classic colours. I can’t yet bring myself to go all-white because I really like having a real tree in the house for the month of December.¬† Surprised?

What do you think about having a non-traditional tree? Would you go for a white or black version?

Marketplace: Gift Ideas from GOOP

Gwyneth Paltrow’s team over at GOOP have curated a pretty interesting selection of items in the GOOP gift guides. I mean, gold dumbbells ($125K!), $2500 gilded playing cards, and this price-upon-request Victoria Arduino coffee machine. Really? I found it pretty amusing that these things were right there alongside the affordable LL Bean tote and this $5 evil eye bracelet.

Here are some of the extravagant items that caught my eye.

Christmas: Holiday Goods at Ikea

I wish¬†there was an Ikea in Kitchener-Waterloo.¬†I miss spending chunks of my days there and browsing the¬†collections with a coffee in hand. I haven’t yet made my way there to see this year’s¬†holiday collection in person (or to stock up on Glogg), but¬†I’m looking forward to doing so in a couple of weeks (if there’s anything still in stock, that is!). For now, I’ve rounded up some of the items that have caught my attention.
