Go to Holiday Gift to Give: A hand written card. I think they are the most heart warming gifts!
Favourite Holiday Tradition: Ugly Sweater Party Holiday Edition. Because I have a huge family, it’s always extremely festive when we get together for the Holiday Season where we would divide into teams and play a series of competitive games and the winning team would always win a great prize…and bragging rights.
Holiday Party Beauty Look/Uniform: Something comfortable and typically loose so I can eat a lot of food while letting my food baby free. Yet fashionable, so I can look cute in pictures as well!!
Stocking Stuffer Recommendation: When in doubt just go with the three C’s…Candles, Chocolate, Candy Canes! Another great idea for the ladies are the cute sample sized goodies Sephora always carries in front of their cash with affordable small gifts that any girl would love receiving.
On a cold winter day, I love to… Have a cup of warm tea or coffee in the morning and snuggle up with a lot of blankets and binge watch romantic comedy movies.
Winter skin essential: A good lip balm, hand cream, and facial cream. My skin gets extremely dry in the winter so I need to ensure everything I’m using in my skincare routine is extra moisturizing! What I’ve been loving is the Henne Organics Lip Balm, the Egyptian Magic Cream for my hands, and the H2O Hydration as my daily moisturizer. Those are my current go to’s.
If I could cozy up to anything, it would be...My sister!!! but she hates cuddling…

Go to Holiday Gift to Give: Every year, I have my go to gift that I keep a closet full to use as little add-ons, stocking stuffers or for Secret Santas. Two years ago it was my favourite Votivo travel candle, last year it was the Hot Chocolate Sampler Box from Soma Chocolatiers. This year I’m like the Oprah of toques- you get a toque, you get a toque!
Favourite Holiday Tradition: I love Christmas so we have a lot but a new one is going to the Santa Clause Parade with our daughter and then getting scones and cinnamon buns from my friends Cobbs bakery in the Annex in Toronto.
Holiday Party Beauty Look/Uniform: I should have been born wearing a dress. I live in them and I live for holiday dresses especially. This year, beauty-wise, I’m all about applying a matte lipstick in a magenta hue but I use my finger to apply it so it’s more of a just-kissed, a little mussed look. I pair that with a highlighter around the eyes.
Stocking Stuffer Recommendation: This year we are only getting stocking stuffers for our family as our family as just gotten too big for anything else. I think if you know the person well then lipsticks or nail lacquers are the best. Every woman in my life is getting a Butter London lacquer because their holiday sets are adorable.
On a cold winter day, I love to…don coordinating onesie pyjamas with my daughter. She can only Netflix and chill for 10 mins maximum during a given day so we are otherwise out and about for parks and circle times.
Winter skin essential: I’ve been using a Vitamin C powder with our PM Anti-Age every night and it’s been great at fighting overall skin dullness. I also think you have to use a serum during winter in addition to layering a moisturizer like our H20 Hydration for barrier protection.
If I could cozy up to anything, it would be…my baby and my other big baby (husband). We have these perfect little three person hugs and it’s 10 seconds of heaven.
Mary Kay McClelland-Director of Operations
Go to Holiday Gift to Give: I always like giving the ladies in my life jewelry. Obviously not diamonds but a nice piece of costume jewelry. My new faves are the Alex and Ani bracelets.
Favourite Holiday Tradition: We started going skiing on Christmas Eve when the kids were little and the tradition continues today. The kids love that we have the hill to ourselves and we head home after lunch to get ready for Christmas mass.
Holiday Party Beauty Look/Uniform: Always like a little sparkle but now comfort is a must. Gone are the days that I wear shoes that hurt or clothes that are too tight!
Stocking Stuffer Recommendation: Always like to give and receive magazines
On a cold winter day, I love to… I love to go skiing.
Winter skin essential: I use the Retin+Erase at night and find it super hydrating.
If I could cozy up to anything, it would be...it would be my kids and/or hubby by the fireplace., with a nice glass of wine – perfection!!
