The holidays are without a doubt my favourite time of year, but this year in particular has felt so harried and unprepared. I've hardly gotten through half of my Christmas shopping let alone baking, cards, etc, so needless to say, style-wise I've been going for completely casual, cozy and no-brainer style combos.

Without a doubt, one of my absolute most-treasured holiday traditions is going to the Nutcracker with the ladies of my family. It's something we've done for years and years - in fact, one of the earliest memories I have is of going to the Nutcracker in my favourite navy velvet dress when I was 5 years old or so! This year, our tradition was made all the more special thanks to Homer St. Cafe & Bar (fave restaurant int he city!) and Ballet BC - click through to see the whole evening!

My Europe adventures could've just as easily been known as "A Tale of Two Bags" since I quite literally brought just two very hardworking and very chic bags for the whole trip: a trusty brown leather bag and my beautiful One Fated Knight woven tote, which was easily my most-worn bag the entire trip. Even with my camera, laptop, Oyster card, metro passes, baguette or dozens of different types of currency rattling around in it at any given time, it saw me from Dublin to Lisbon to Paris and more in effortless style and ease (seriously, this bag fits my life and more).

I'm always careful to team up with brands I truly love for giveaways, but given the fact that I not only love this bag, but am very emotionally attached to it too after spending a whole two months basically toting around nothing but it, I'm really so excited to be teaming up with the amazing Vancouver-based label to give away the Queen bag (valued at over $400) pictured in this post for one of you, just in time for the holidays! Since the remainder of this post is a bit more heavy-photo than usual, you can enter right below if you want to cut to the chase, but trust me - you'll want to click through to get all the snaps! This was a particularly beautiful day exploring Paris, one I'll always remember.
