If there’s one thing I love about this season, it’s Christmas! Candles glowing, carols echoing through our home, festive decorations, watching Christmas movies and drinking hot apple cider. Getting ready for family and friends gathering, all brings back happy memories of Christmases past and looking forward to this one.
Part of the festivities and preparation is going to see Christmas lights and shopping at Christmas markets. We have been to three and plan to go to three more. Fair November is an annual craft show we go to, where artisans display their creations at the University of Guelph, Ontario. I wore my faux suede skirt (I have three in different colours: black, brown and this one).
I love purses that are more than functional, and add “accents” to an outfit and puts the FUN in functional. This vegan purse with fringes is made by Jeanne and Jax and bought at Drizzle & Shine. Those who follow my blog have seen it numerous times because it’s my favourite go-to purse.
We always enjoy lunch or dinner in the cafeteria with lots of vegan and vegetarian options; we had vegan pizza, vegan barley salad, couscous with grilled vegetables and curried squash and potatoes. It’s very heart-warming because it shows that many students are choosing vegan meals whether for health, the environment or compassion.
