This is what I got for Christmas from the boy! I am so very excited, as sewing is a completely new adventure for me and it is as scary and unknown as starting to learn a foreign language. I have watched a bunch of YouTure videos on how to thread is, how to start it and so on, and this week will be full of mystic attempts and tryouts. Keep your fingers crossed!
We are back from a fantastic holiday trip to the USofA. We went to my brother’s MBA graduation in PA, then visited DC and hung out with dear friends and Christmas was spent in the splendid fairy tale city of New York.
Here are some of the fantastic moments we had waking around the city with my mom.
On this wonderful day they say all wishes come true! So I wish health, wealth and happiness to all! (Something like peace on Earth, but in a milder form) 🙂 May all your wishes come true indeed and let the Christmas joy fill your hearts all year long. Because people should be good not only on 25th December, but always. Always indeed.
Only two weeks are left until Christmas, and I am getting more and more in Jingle Bells-mood! Decorations, gifts, recipes for delicious Christmas treats… it is all up and buzzing in my head. And what better place to turn for inspiration to than Tumblr ! These are my top picks for tree decorations.
1. Very, very white
2. Blue and fun 3. Starry white 4. Golden joy After gathering inspiration I decided that this year my tree will be all silver and white, and although very small, I think the result is pretty!
I am a book lover, and when it comes to christmas list, there is nothing better than receiving books. Especially amazingly pretty books about Chanel!
Presented in the label’s signature quilted leather and adorned with the famous double ‘C’, François Baudot and François Aveline’s ‘Chanel Luxe’ trilogy is the ultimate collector’s item for lovers of the iconic French fashion house. With three books exploring Fine Jewelry, Perfume and Coco herself, these wonderful volumes are a testament to the incomparable achievements and history of the brand. This wonderful book can be purchased, for the mere €560 at Net-A-Porter.
The new John Lewis ad is out and it is just so sweet and easy to relate to. We all remember the times when we were waiting for that big Christmas morning every single year and we just couldn’t be more excited, but this little guy is waiting anxiously not for the reasons we were waiting. The end is an “awwwwww” moment, and that is always amazing when we talk about ads. The song by The Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please” is creating even further the innocence and purity of the mood. Great job to the agency Adam & Eve.
Of course we have to remember and last year’s ad, because it is just as strong. Great job John Lewis, always playing on the emotional strings!
A book! Indeed a book! Filled with glitz, glamour, gowns and gorgeous photography. Dior: Couture is probably the book of the season, and definitely on my Christmas wish list. The imagery in the book is of no other but Patrick Demarchelier, so there is not even a hint of doubt it is going to be genius! Amazing photographer shooting of of the most prominent and powerful designs of Dior atelier- from Christian Dior himself to the John Galliano times, priceless at less than $70 on Amazon.
