Christmas is just two days away, and if you have yet to finish (or start) your holiday shopping, I can relate.

Take a look below and good luck shopping!

Stole My Heart
Choosing just one thing to love (or treat-yo-self to) at new Dundas West lingerie boutique, Stole My Heart, aint’ easy. But, if I had to choose, I think a pair of these luxe silk PJs in blush pink would be the ultimate thing to slip into on Christmas morning.
