Christmas on Heels

New Years Eve is coming and you, girls, are probably looking for the best pair of heels to fit your holidays dress. I have been window shopping this weekend, trying to choose a pair that would fit  my New Years' outfit. I ended up with those five pairs of gorgeous heels.

1. Nelly Heels HERE  2. Nelly Platform Sandals HERE  3. Nelly Sandals HERE  4. River Island Sandals HERE  5. Zara Leather High Heeled Sandals HERE

I am quite in doubt which ones are my favourites, but would not refuse any of those beauties.

Any favourites?

Advent DIY gift wrapping

What could be better than gift wrapping in the weekend just before travelling to England for the holidays. I want everything to be ready and next weekend I will be packing and cleaning the apartment. Last weekend I packed the presents for my boyfriend's family and this weekend is the rest of the family.

Here are some example of how you can decorate your Christmas presents in a new way.

What do you think?

Did you finish with theChristmas shopping and gift wrapping?

Have a lovely week!

A glimpse of Christmas

I love all the fluffy pullovers with Christmas motives that I can see on the display of so many shops. 

Here is a classic combination of a Christmas outfit. Loving pairing my Christmas skirt  with long black boots and my Gina Tricot fluffy top (See HERE).

Skirt - Old, similar HERE
Boots - Bianco Footwear, similar HERE

Give me a glimpse of your Christmas outfit today by commenting under this post.
I would love to hear:)

Have a lovely day!

Weekend DIY Christmas Cookies Jar

Christmas season always puts me in a creative mood and this weekend I have been very productive, not only decorating my little apartment but also try to do something extra.

Todays DIY PROJECT is a jar for cookies with Christmas motives, that you can also use to store candies and other sweets during the Christmas season. It is great because it does not require the purchase of a lot of additional materials but  what you have at disposal.


Here is what you will need:

 - an empty glass jar (you can buy one, or reuse one, as I did)

 - stickers with Christmas motives (you can get that at any hobby shop for example-søstrene grene)

 - Christmas ribbon, I have chosen two different ones (you can buy them at søstrene grene)

You must clean  the jar well and remove the sticker that was originally put, if you are re-using one. Then you must measure the christmas sticker according to how wide the jar is and stick it carefully. Be careful, with leaving air between the sticker and the jar because you will end up having balloons of air and it would not look as pretty. When you are finished with that, the last thing you need to do is choose a ribbon and put a bow on the jar.


I hope you enjoyed it :)

Christmas mood ON 2014

Hello Darlings,

I hope you are enjoying the great Christmas mood !
This year I am a little bit too busy with work and school that I have not finished my Christmas shopping. I am usually very organized and I am starting with the Christmas presents from August-September but this year it has been very intense due to my Masters thesis. Shame on me!! I know:)

Anyways still some presents to go, so I will try and arrange getting some the next two weeks, hopefully I can also get some better deal with the upcoming days.

How about you? How are you with the Christmas shopping?

Last week was the photo shoot for Contessa Jewellery, so it was quite great to be behind the scene and observe the actions behind the camera. More to come this weekend... I know that these oho toes are not that good quality but I tool them with my iPhone and the light was not so good for it.

We had a lot of fun and I am actually looking forward to seeing the results:) Check out Contessa Jewellery's Facebook page HERE and Etsy Shop HERE, Insta profile @Contessa_Jewellery

Have a lovely Thursday!
