This year has been filled with abundance, adventures and absolute fun. I’ve had the opportunity to connect with more readers on a one-on-one basis and added even more members to my blog family- I mean the Blogroll is a separate page altogether. A page that desperately needs updating *adds on to-do list*
As the year comes to a close I thought no better way to celebrate an amazing year then to host a holiday mixer…No, no, no this is not your average awkward-conversation-fake-smile holiday mixer…it’s an intimate, beauty-themed, feel good mixer for both men and women who love the holidays!

The best part- Haute For The Holidays is being held in support of my favorite organization Yonge Street Mission
I’ve been volunteering around the holidays with YSM for a few years now, the first year I dragged my little sister with me to help serve Christmas meal to their youth group and over the years I slowly transitioned into a year around position as a youth mentor.
I love mentoring because it helps me stay grounded and responsible for my actions. It gives me a reason to practice what I preach and I learn so much about myself by helping others.
YSM’s Christmas Market has a HIGH DEMAND for teen gifts. They are often the last ones parents shop for, especially if there are younger siblings in the house. I remember living in subsidized housing during my teen years and as underprivileged as we were, I loathed the donated gifts I received. Why? Well teens want to fit in with their friends, kinda hard to do with a loud Christmas sweater, a Barbie and dreaded Christmas socks! Teens love to choose their own gifts and go shopping, gift card donations (of up to $20) are perfect for this.
Need more ideas on what to bring? Check out this great Christmas WishList YSM 2012 created by YSM team.

Hope to see you there…let’s toast to a blessed year!
