Stuff I Wore - Ugly Sweater

First of all, I'd like to wish you, your family and friends a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year! Ho, ho, ho - hope santa was good to you : )

It was quite a mild Christmas day we had in Toronto, which I didn't mind. Unfortunately, not a white Christmas. To celebrate, I put on this ugly sweater I picked up from H&M a few weeks back. It's actually not that ugly, right? It's fun and I love the pop of green! To stay with the Christmas theme, I wore a pair of red Levis cords. Even though it wasn't raining, it didn't stop me from wearing these bright yellow Converse All Star Rubber kicks. I'm loving them and it looks like others are too. A lady saw them and told me "Your shoes makes me happy". How cool was that? Spreading joy through my outfit! : )

I wanted to share with you a very special birthday celebration I had! I entered this contest organized by Beretta Farms. We were asked to snap a selfie with one of their products at the local grocery store where Beretta products are sold. I submitted my pic. Then we had to encourage our followers, friends and family to like it. The entry with the most likes WINS a Beretta catered dinner for 10! And guess who won? ME! : ) Thanks to all who helped out, liked my pic and made this happened!
