Oh Summer Candy Yearly Round Up

2013 has to be the most rewarding year of my entire life. Although this year brought me some downs including the death of my Grandmother and a difficult break up, it has also brought me many, many ups. I think this was the year I finally found myself, as cliche as that sounds. I know the person I want to be and I love the person I have become. My grades have gone up drastically, I landed an internship, a part-time job, had the first healthy relationship in my life, grew closer with some of the best friends I could ask for, lived on my own, travelled, forgiven those who have hurt me, apologized to those I have hurt, discovered and met amazing bands, and of course my biggest accomplishment: this blog. I never thought that I would receive so much support from this blog as I have. From my friends and family and my online network of friends, this blog has grown to exactly what I want it to be. Thank you for reading and commenting and supporting. Here is a collection of the top ten posts of 2013. Enjoy and I can't wait for what the new year brings to Oh Summer Candy.

Happy New Years!

DIY Christmas Gifts

Christmas is almost here and if you are anything like me, you haven't even started. Unfortunately, some of the Christmas gifts you were wanting to get for people, may be sold out, but there's always another option! So many DIY blogs right now are making amazing Christmas gift ideas. I conjured up some of my favourite DIY Christmas gifts to share with you. Not only do DIY gifts come from the heart, but they are easy on the wallet too! 

You can always count on A Beautiful Mess to make beautiful DIY gifts like this His + Her Coffee Giftbasket

A handmade Infinite Scarf to keep your loved ones warm during the cold season

Don't let Santa have all the sugar! Sugar Scrub

These Handwarmers warm your hands and your heart. 

Rolo and Hug Pretzels for your foodie friend. 

May have to make this Deer Fabric Sign for myself!

Merry Christmas Frugal Females!

Frugal Fashion Friday: Trend Drunk + Blogger Fashion Week

You know what I love? Online shopping and thrift shopping. You know what I love even more? A place where I can do both at the same time. Trend Trunk is a Canadian-based online consignment store where you can get brand new to pre-loved items for up to 80% off!

Currently, Trend Trunk is holding a Blogger Fashion Week from December 9th-December 15th and Oh Summer Candy will be featured on the final day, December 15th! If you want to shop some of my items (including the dress I'm wearing in my bubble gum photo) go check it out and be sure to shop at other fashionable Canadian bloggers closets

What would my blog be if I didn't talk about Cyber Monday? It's the most wonderful day of the year for compulsive online shoppers. If your online shop doesn't have a sale going on today, chances are you won't be making any money. I collected a bunch of wonderful sales that are going on on the inter-web today. Have fun and stay frugal.
