WHAT TO WEAR FOR THE HOLIDAYS?

And to think getting everyone a nice gift was stressful. What the * are we going to wear for the Holidays?

I think I am going to keep things very very simple this year. All black. No fuss. To get in the right mood I teamed up with Winkelstraat.nl again to show you some of my favorite options for Christmas dinner and/or a New Year's Eve wiggle with the hip while holding a glass of champagne (in both hands?).

My rules for getting dressed for the Holidays this year?

BACK TO BROW BUSINESS

Looking back in terms of beauty, I would baptize 2014 the year of the brow. Perfectly shaped hairs made way for thick caterpillars, thanks to Miss Delevingne. Safe to say it was a bad moment for the tweezer business and a victory for untrimmed beauty.

YOGA ROOKIE

I can run, but I am a total rookie at yoga. It’s 2014 and I tried yoga for the first (and second, and third) time this year. Can you believe it?

My first yoga lesson was a few months ago, when one of my friends took me to a class to try it out. What I didn’t know was that that particular class - they called it Hot Yoga if I remember correctly - was for more advanced yoga students. It was (too) hot, it was (too) fast and I couldn’t follow half of what I was even doing.

But it was fun enough to try it again.

MASON PEARSON, WORTH IT?

For someone that doesn't brush her hair quite often it is hard to spend over 3 euros on a brush, let alone over 80. And yet I was anxious to try a Mason Pearson, which is - safe to say? - the brush of brushes. But what makes it so special? And why is it so freaking expensive?

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS #2

It’s about that time. Family, finger food and fa la la la la!

Even though this means I am constantly battling a runny nose and cold hands, the thought of cheesy holiday songs keeps me warm. Oh, and the secret list I’ve been keeping up with for some time, my Christmas cravings.


If one of you happens to win the lottery and feels like blessing this lady with some budget cracking gifts... Ho-ho-hand these over.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS #1

"I don't want a lot for Christmas, there is just a few things I need..."

It is the month of the Holidays and the only time we are allowed to scribble down a list with a few of our wishes. As a kid, I used to completely rip apart the brochures of our local toy stores to make a moodboard-like king sized paper filled with things that I wanted needed from Santa. (Before my sister could even take a proper look at the brochures, that is... (evil child!).)

As I grow older, the amount of wishes I have gets smaller and smaller (and less materialistic?!), but there is a few things that I wouldn't mind finding under the Christmas tree.

Alright, let's get to it shall we?
