Holiday Hair: Twisted Knot.

Wednesday, December 7, 2016




Do  you have any fun Christmas shindigz to attend? If you do, here is a great hairdo to try out. I've sported this twisted knot last night during Balazs' work festive party and I felt super comfortable wearing it with a black dress, cozy tights, ankle boots and minimal jewelry. It's a festive winner, I'm telling you...

Here is the how-to if you fancy jazzing up your hair this season. Psst: it works on shorter shoulder-length hair as well. Cheers!

P.S: Also, this ponytail is pretty special as well.
P.P.S: And more all things hair this way...

It's Raining Cats...



Felicity Berkleef is a 21-year-old self-taught photographer from Holland who loves snapping photos of her two rain-loving cats. Yup, anytime it pours outside, Nero and Tommie sit as close as possible to the window to enjoy the serene view of the stormy weather. Somehow those two rascals can’t get enough of it and I can’t get enough of those sweet photos. What a pair!

Festive Home: Dried Orange and Cinnamon Garland.

Monday, December 5, 2016



Speaking of festive cheer, I just got home with a bag filled with oranges and cinnamon sticks because this afternoon I'm planning to get cracking on Erin's dried orange and cinnamon garlands for our Christmas tree and the living-room doorway. Supposedly it not only looks beautiful, but it also smells like Christmas morning. Win-win!

Fancy making one too? Here is the step-by-step how-to.

P.S: Speaking of oranges...

Festive Hostess Gift: Milk Bath



This Holiday season I've been trying to keep things cheery and personal. For example, I promised myself that this year instead of just picking up a bottle of wine on the way to a festive party, I'll make an effort to create something more thoughtful and personal to show the hostess that I care.

So, a few weeks ago I took Julie's advice and made a huge batch of her mint milk bath mix that I neatly packaged into weck jars and finished it off with a sweet little label. To my surprise, those little jars were a huge success with my friends, who happily tried it out and emailed me how much they loved the gesture.

So if you fancy making someone feel special and appreciated this Holiday Season, make them this little treat. It only takes a few minutes and a handful of simple and inexpensive ingredients and it will mean much more than an impersonal bottle of wine. I promise!

P.S: The perfect winter/Christmas potpourri.
