Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Today's weather was absolutely....... white. I woke up to a nice snowstorm that buried the entire town under a thick layer of snow, left cars stuck at every corner and pedestrians walking with their legs completely lost under the snow. The good thing about me working on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day is that I got today off. I was one of the lucky few who could've spent the whole without setting foot outside. But of course, leave it up to me to feel the need to go take pictures outside. "I'll get some crazy shots! It's only snow, how bad can it be?!"

To be honest, it wasn't cold. I was well prepared - had my earmuffs, wore a hoodie under my parka, made sure to wear my scarf and gloves to keep me warm. It was more the wind and the 30 cm of snow in my backyard that made it difficult. I felt I was in the North Pole, ready to walk into Santa Claus at any moment. I don't regret going out, I had fun! I just wished the conditions were a tad bit better for me to get better photos.


Chocolate Season

A month without posts, you know what that means... I just survived final exams! I made it out alive, so it's a good thing! However, this means I work crazy hours at work because it's the holidays - don't you just love working in retail! This is when I cannot be any happier at the fact I have Deloitte waiting for me to start next fall!

My plans for catching up with sleep is absolutely failing. There has been maybe one night since the start of my vacation where I actually slept in. Sad, isn't it. Despite me really wanting to sleep, I seem to always choose going out with friends and live my social life at its fullest while I still can before school starts again.Who needs sleep when you have friends, right? I know you all think I'm crazy agree with me.

As exhausted as I was from serving last minute Christmas shoppers all day, I met up with my friend S for some girl time. Juliette & Chocolat recently opened at Dix30 and we chatted over some delicious dark, semi-sweet hot chocolate and caramel fleur de sel chocolate mousse - fancy isn't it? I didn't feel much of the holiday spirit until I stood in front of the newly opened J&C, where beautiful light ornaments where installed along with a gorgeous, gorgeous Christmas tree lit up, in the middle of the square. Of course, at that very moment, there was some light snow floating in the air, slowly falling to the ground. Beau-ti-ful, I tell you. Beau-ti-ful. At the end of the night, I felt that I suffered from several diabetes attacks due to the high amount of sugar I consumed. But every now then, it's always fun to indulge, especially when you're with a friend.
