I’m having a crisis. It’s a winter accessories crisis. If feel like, at least in Ottawa, we’re in this weird in-between stage. Like it’s not really fall, and it’s not really winter… it’s just… cold. Every morning I get into my car and I’m like SEAT WARMERS!!! Thank goodness I got rid of my smart car. ...
