Things I'm Loving Lately #27

1. This Nail Polish

I've talked about my love for Essie polish before. I was in the drug store, the other day, and had to check out their "holiday editions." I am really loving everything GOLD lately so I knew I had to add this one to my collection! I put it over a red for the holiday season!

2. Surprise Mail

I love mail. Hand written notes and cards are my absolute favourite to
send and receive. I've been slacking lately on getting them out! I was so blown away when a package showed up from fellow blogger, turned real-life friend, Leigh.  She really is the sweetest!

3. Oatmeal

I'm back on the oatmeal train lately. I blame/thank the freezing weather. I LOVE Stoaked Oats (especially because they're local) and they come in so many flavours! You don't have to add anything but I enjoy filling mine up with loads of fresh fruit. 

4. Elf On The Shelf

We planned to wait another year before buying London an Elf but my mom wanted to buy one, this year, so we happily accepted. Of course, his elf has a hockey jersey for my hockey obsessed boy. 

5. Run streaking

I'm back Run streaking after a nine month hiatus. I'm hoping to run,  a minimum of a mile a day, every day for the month of December. I'm ony four days in and it already feels natural to run everyday! I know streaking isn't for everyone but I really enjoy it. It forces me
to run on days when I am feeling lazy. I simply tell myself "it's only 9 minutes Kaella!"  Half marathon training for Phoenix kicks off next week so I'm hoping streaking helps with that!! 

Tell me one thing you're loving lately?
What colour are your nails right now?


  1. My nails are naked right now...I rarely paint my finger nails as I hate when they start to chip and I swear it's the next day! I am definitely getting a pedicure before baby comes though :) And so glad the package made it to you :)

    1. I'm the same way with my finger nails! My toes are polish-free though! Ha Ha!

  2. I love Essie!!! My favorite for sure! And that little hockey jersey....too cute!!!!

    Getting mail is the best!!! Such a thoughtful little surprise!!!

  3. Oh I love that gold essie, I'll have to check it out. I've been having trouble getting ANY color on my nails lately (no time).

    Surprise mail is awesome :) I should send someone a surprise package... hmm now you've got me thinking ;)

    1. Yes, surprise mail is awesome!!! It really made my week! xx

  4. Surprise mail is the best! And so is Leigh :) I have been looking for a rose gold nail polish colour for my toes :) I never paint my finger nails but always my toes. I should check Essie.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I'm such a fan of gold around this time of year too. (I hate silver!!) I'm really sad you won't be able to make it to our Christmas party next weekend! :(

    I love Stoked Oats!! They're based out of Canmore (or were) & are usually hooking runners up with goodies in their race swag bags!

    1. I know!! I am beyond bummed!!! Silly mom responsibilities ;)

      I'll make next time work for sure! The holidays are just a crazy time for me! HAVE FUN THOUGH!!!

  6. Great polish!!! Love mail and Leigh is the sweetest! You elf is hockey too - so perfect!!

    1. Aww thanks! She is the best!! Hope you had a great weekend!!
