This DIY is by far the most popular post on my blog, so I decided it would be helpful to create a video tutorial!
Hope I'm explaining the steps clearly... haha

VICTORY IS MINE! (imagine me shouting this as I pretend to like snow in the last picture^^)
After searching around for a year (yes, a whole YEAR) for the perfect leopard coat, I finally found this one from Jollychic.com ... Why did it take me a whole year to commit? After all, it is just a coat, right? Well, yes and no. I found it quite hard to find a leopard coat with the right length, the right color tone, and level of furriness. The one from Zara was too long, the one from Asos was an odd dark leopard, and the one from Forever 21 had a hood with ears on it. (I think I graduated eared-hoods when I was six, thank you very much) So when I found this one online, it was a shopping eureka moment. The shipping kind of took a long time, so when it came in the mail, it felt like a surprise because I almost forgot I ordered it. At first sight, even I was a little intimidated by the bold print. But the more I wear it, that exact boldness is growing on me. Plus, it's extremely warm!
You probably noticed the random lay out of the pictures, because there are two different backgrounds. Well, my sister and I took these pictures on our way to lunch, and I think it would be a blogger sin to pass by a PINK HOUSE without taking outfit pictures in front of it. And you gotta admit, the leopard print against the pink wall is a match made in a blogger's heaven.
A video featuring stuff I got before, during, and after the holidays. I promise it's shorter than my last haul video, and I added clips of me actually trying the pieces on. It's like shopping with your girlfriends via internet.

Obviously these photos were not taken in Montreal, but rather while I was in Atlanta during winter break. I know, I know... I'm such a bad blogger. Haha, but I knew I needed some prepared posts because the weather in Montreal right now is not what you would call great weather for a photoshoot. Yeah, I don't think anyone would be interested in an outfit post featuring a giant parka and Ugg boots, which is what I've been wearing pretty much everyday. Until it ceases to be -20 degrees, outfit posts may be in sparse supply.
But hey, I did start a Youtube channel, so I can film indoors and not have to nag anyone to take pictures for me. ;)
We're already one month into January! How are your New Year's resolutions going? Mine are going pretty well, but it's only been one month so I hope to keep the momentum going...
From concealer to wall decoration, here are my January favorites! Quite the random assortment of items, I must say.
