Ali Martell: From Hemlines to Heels


Gifts From My Holiday Wish List

Here's what I'm wishing for this holiday season

It's my most favourite time of the year, really.

I get to see my precious relatives and this year I get to meet my brand-new niece Emma Grace who isn't even all that new anymore but since she lives all the way in Nashville with her three equally lovely sisters I have yet to hold her and sniff her in person yet. I get to unapologetically stuff my gob with delicious baked goods. I get to leave the ugly Toronto winters and spenf two fun-filled weeks without a hat and coat on. I get to shower my loved ones with handpicked gifts—I spend too much time on Etsy, I think. 

AND, I get to tell people exactly what I want and covet.
