A Sunny Warm Christmas

Growing up in Canada, I find it SO weird that its roughly 30 degrees here and its a few days away from Christmas! I’ve always wanted/dreamt of being somewhere hot during the winter holidays but to be honest, it’s so hard to get into the Christmas spirit. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the hot weather and I am enjoying getting a tan, but my mind associates Christmas with snow, Christmas lights, getting dark at 4pm etc; It’s all so strange to me. That being said, I am still really enjoying my first Christmas abroad in Australia. It’s sad I don’t have my family or friends here with me but at least I have Brandon and my new friends I’ve made since moving here. Makes it all so much better. Even though I can’t get into the Christmas spirit, I’ve still caught myself pulling out red shirts and red lipstick hahaha (something I normally do during the holidays back home).

I also decided I would start doing more informal entries like this? Kind of like a diary entry for you guys to read. Lately I’ve been having really intense dreams. My mom has them, and so do I. I’ve had them since I was a child… like I am not kidding, I can describe in full detail many dreams I’ve had since I was probably 5 years old. As scary as it is, I also have tons of “memories” from my childhood and when I bring them up my parents are completely confused and tell me that none of it has ever happened and that they’re dreams. Well anyways, my dreams are getting more intense as time goes on. I remember places (which I often revisit in different dreams) in crazy detail to the point where I can draw full city maps of places that I don’t believe actually exist in real life, I can remember smells, I wake up with the stress I’ve incurred during my dream.. I don’t even know how to explain it. My dreams are so real they feel like memories. Let’s just leave it at that. I always ramble to Brandon each morning about my dreams and he’s always in shock about how detailed and long they are so he’s encouraged me to write out my dreams everyday from now on in a journal, so I’ve started. Maybe I’ll publish it online one day for you guys to read if anyone even cares hahaha. Does anyone else have dreams like this? Comment and let me know because I’d love to know that I am not the only one.

Anyways, Brandon and I have been getting the same days off of work lately and we went Christmas shopping/out for dinner and I wore my current favourite Glassons shirt (on sale for $20!!). I’ll link it here. I paired it with Charlotte Tilbury “Red Carpet Red” that I was gifted and Colourpop’s “Cozy” in the centre.

I also started playing around with Adobe Lightroom again and am getting the hang of it so expect some better editing from moi from now on. I think I’ll leave this here. Hope you guys have a great Christmas and Happy New Year if you don’t hear from me before then. Cheers xx
