Canadian Blogger Christmas Exchange 2016.

I’m really excited to be participating in this year’s Canadian Blogger Christmas Ornament Exchange, as it’s my third year joining in the fun! A huge thank you to Leigh and Lindsey for being awesome hosts. Last year I received an amazingly perfect ornament from Heather (Girl Goes Running) and this year I was paired up with Ange (Cowgirl Runs).

Ange and I were able to exchange ornaments at Brie’s Christmas party on the weekend and I’m pretty sure she KILLED IT. You can head over to her blog to see what I gave her, but apparently we know each other pretty well! I sadly don’t have a Christmas tree, but I do have my lit birch tree (which, for those who asked, you can find it at Costco), so I placed my adorable mountain ornaments on that tree.

Ange also gave me a travel pack of Davids Tea and some dark chocolate – it’s like I talk nonstop about those two things all over the internet or something. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I took the travel pack of tea to work, dumped the tea packets into my drawer, and am currently using the cute little case to carry lipsticks around in my purse. I am trying to be more bold with my lip colour and I’ve worn a plum colour and a matte mocha colour this week. I really felt good with them on, more confident and adventurous, but I had to keep reminding myself I had it on and not to mess it up!

I tried out the chocolate covered almond tea first. It seemed like the natural choice based on my sweet tooth preferences and it was delicious! I usually stick to peppermint or lemon or camomile tea but it’s fun to try new ones. These little packs are great for seeing it you like a certain flavour before committing to buying more. I’m excited to try “coffee cafe” tea!

You can find the other bloggers ornaments on Leigh’s link-up today. I think everyone did a really great job at picking the perfect ornaments. This gift exchange is unique because we focus on ornaments and not just “gifts” which makes it both harder but more fun!

Have you participated in gift exchanges this year?

What type of ornaments do you decorate your tree with – everything and anything or do you pick a theme?

What is your favourite kind of tea?


  1. We also have the same tree – I love it. I’m so glad you like the mountains ๐Ÿ™‚
    I just haven’t set mine up yet because this month has been insane and I just haven’t been organized. Oops.
