Christmas Day 2012

Merry Christmas everyone? Are you enjoying your turkey coma? ;^)

This will be a short post, but I just wanted to wish everyone the best. There've been a couple trying times this year but hopefully the new year will bring us better times! I hope it's not too cold where you are; stay warm!

I also got a new sweater among my other gifts.. super comfy and warm. It's Calvin Klein~ *pinky up*

I'll leave you with some food porn.

Guild Wars 2 Wintersday 2012 Event

Hi guys!
The other day I logged into Guild Wars 2 for their Wintersday event! Actually, it's been going on for a few days now, but I haven't been able to get on.. luckily I made the finale though! They even have their own Santa named Tixx (I believe) and Lion's Arch was decorated for the holidays.

They had a bunch of mini games set up, ranging from snowball fights to an actual dungeon. Some of them were really hard, but really fun! I ran the dungeon a couple times with my boyfriend so that we could create our own mini pets! I made the plush griffon and he made the golem.

When there are things to collect in videogames I get pretty excited! I collect figures outside of gaming, so when there's something rare like these Christmas toy mini pets I couldn't help myself haha. They're so cute!
I play a Sylvari ranger named Calael de'Sylvania (add me to your friends list as TheSweetBean.2175). It's the same name I used when I played Dungeons and Dragons haha! I typically gravitated to the natural-like races like elves and classes like ranger or druid.

I really enjoyed this event! Although I wish I had participated earlier...
If you're interested, I also have a steam account! Visit here.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday! See you soon.

Xmas Shopping at the Eaton Centre & Photos of the Week #4

Today I was SO excited to hang out with Sachie and go Christmas shopping! (I got a lot of things but can't post them here because I know relatives will be peeking haha) I just hit my holiday break from school, so it was almost a mini celebration to go out and have some fun with her. We don't see each other too often outside of conventions and cosplay, so it's really special!

It was rainy, but not too cold thankfully! I wanted to look cuter than my usual stressed, student self so I ended up wearing a skirt and tights. I need more girly winter clothes I think.. We also went and got food before shopping. I had these delicious bbq pork buns and dim sum! :)

Afterwards we went through the mall. Stopped off at Lush, H&M, Crabtree & Evelyn (I love that place!) and of course Sephora! We tried out a bunch of fragrances from Tocca which I've been dying to check out but never got around to it till now! Sachie is buying me a rollerball of one of their scents for Christmas that I'm super excited about! I never get to take scents with me on trips because the bottles are too big, but this is perfect!

The Eaton Centre in Toronto is all decked out in its Christmas finery too!

The tree changes colours too!

After I got back from shopping today I decided to try out something I've been wanting to do for a while. My common room at residence has been decorated by some of the students for the holidays and the ambiance at night was interesting and warm that I had to take some photos! It's also the first time trying out my tripod and my god are tripods amazing! They let you do things that you wouldn't normally be able to do!

Took these with my Canon T3i and 18-55mm lens.

Wish I could've made the bokeh balls a little better but the room was only so big :'(
Just cropped this one, no Photoshop
I hope everyone is staying warm and snuggly during the exam period. Stay safe!
