I want to apologise to why I havn’t been writing on my blog. I am getting ready to go back to Dublin for Christmas!! I am so excited cant wait to see everyone.

Toronto in winter is beautiful! I love the snow! Yes it is freezing, -17 (feels -26) but its bearable when you have the right clothes and the snow makes it look so pretty so its not that bad. But where I am going I need to prepare myself…snow boots is on the list and maybe a balaclava (what I have been told) I am excited that i’ll be living in a new city but so nervous as how will I bare the cold but look its an experience ha!!

I am going to miss Toronto but can’t wait for whats in store for us. I am thankfull for my time here. I have met so many people who will be in my life forever. I am going to miss Teavana and the people I work with. This city will always be in my heart and I hope to come back here one day. You never know I might be back sooner than I expect. Toronto it has been a pleasure but there’s no place like home…especially for christmas πŸ™‚

First Canadian winter..

As the winter is approaching I have to pick up the essential winter gear. In Toronto it gets to -20ΒΊ…”You foreigner’s in Canada have no idea what your getting yourselves into” I was told from my work colleagues! I am already shivering while heading to the Subway and thats two seconds from my apartment and were not even below zero!!

Make sure for the winter approaching get your winter woolies ready, I know I am. I puchased this scarf from Wilfred when I was working there. Its made from wool and is a beautiful scarf. I hope it will keep me warm and worth its money cause it wasnt cheap. At least it looks good right?!

I was told to purchase goose feather jackets as it will be a great use to me for our time we have planned in Canada. Today I went looking for the perfect jacket to keep me warm, there not very fashionable but look you sometimes have to give in and just be cozy πŸ™‚
