Here comes the date of launching our Blog on a very special day. Since it’s the Month of giving & receiving presents with love, we decided to post our very first Blog post on Christmas Eve with lots of sparkly, Glittery and fairy moments that we have collected since the beginning of the month December. Knowing that we have only 25 days of winter wonderland, we wanted to make the most out of it by taking pictures, writing tips, brain storming ideas and sharing them with the Christmas Lovers out there. As both of us are newly moms, having our Blog is like our Baby that gives us the excitement of a dream coming true and worth all the effort and the challenge we have put into.
Welcome to our curious world!
From Christmas house decoration to a Christmas fancy Dinner..
This year, we went for Red & Gold Christmas Theme. We found the Christmas decoration at Zara home very Nostalgic-ish, reminding us of the decoration of our Childhood Christmas days in early 90’.
Most of the times we choose a specific corner at home and organise it with our favourite seasonal bits. Our tip is that Books always give a cool modern vibe to the decoration and off course a selection of our favourite candles.
Everyone sets the “Under the tree’’ area differently. Last year we had bunch of beautifully rapped Christmas presents while this year we kept the area partly clear with a Christmas Train for the enjoyment of our Babies. The red tree base cover from Zara Home.
A Christmas eve without A Christmas Jumper? A no no.. Here is our Penguin Orangey Red Toddler Christmas Jumper for my Little Boy from H&M kids Department with his Favourite Book from Harrods London (Santa is coming to London). London Bus tree Decoration is somehow heavy though very Unique from Liberty London. The dolls with Long legs gives us a very cosy home feeling. (Zara Home).
Our makeup Goodies for the month December are so far by Ysl, Guerlain, Dior and Marc Jacobs . They make the perfect gifts for her who is into her make up vanity display. Not to forget to mention our home made Hot Chocolate Secret. After a long working day at the office, we need a bit of warm drink that calm us down and set us gradually to a good sleep. We prefer to make our own by using skimmed milk with a spoon of NUTELLLA!! Less guiltiness as it is only a little spoon , isn’t it?
Oh the Process of choosing presents, collecting small bits here and there by creating your own selective basket or box are just our favourite moments. It’s always Beautiful to see how people put so much effort and time by choosing each little presents for you. We always go for little Samples and miniatures from high end brands such as Chanel, Guerlain, estee lauder etc. body lotions and face care creams that are considered very handy while traveling. In Christmas time all the beauty departments offer a bunch of tiny goodies that can fit into stockings or baskets.
We have waited for so long and finally it was the time for a little tree with a sparkling star to show off on our nails. Go for one or two nails max to keep it simple yet Festive. Well common, its only Until Christmas. Get your nails done with Shellac. It doesn’t harm your nails. The formula stays longer for about 14 days.
Red and more red please for only a month and why not!! To keep up with Santa, we take out our Deep red Parka from our Closet that was a winner found from an Vintage boutique from Brussels and Louis Vuitton Mini Alma.
This is my Christmassy Fancy dinner Outfit. I kept it Safe with a Black bodycon dress to emphasize my 9 month Tummy and with a bit of camouflage that was achieved by a Parka, pairing it with ankle booties and my mini Alma.
My date went for a classic men look with a white shirt from Canali, Dark wool grey trousers and a brown checked Blazer from Armani pairing it with Gucci Leather Loafers.
We always enjoy Good food with a beautiful setup. The cosy Christmassy interior made our dinner evening much more special.
We went for a Surprise Menu which was consisted of 4 different dishes. All ingredients were a selection of Organic Vegetables. The taste was divine.
