Merry Christmas from Paris!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Whether you love Christmas or not, you've gotta love Christmas in Paris! 
For the last two days I've been living my very own Christmas miracle - my first encounter with Paris. Yesterday was probably one of the coolest days ever - both literally and metaphorically. My mom and I, we left our hotel in the cold rainy morning and walked around Paris until night fall. "Walking" is a bit of an overstatement because we visited 5 different coffee/brasserie/restaurants, drunk wine in each. So basically we were getting tipsy, then walking around to clear our heads, then getting tipsy all over again.
We saw Santa, instead of a slate he had a motorbike and instead of reindeers, he had a police escort, but well, a girl has to make do. 

Off I go, so much to see and so little time! I know I know I haven't replied to your lovely comments yet, I promise I will do so as soon as possible and I also promise that I'll follow back each and every one!       

How are you spending your Christmas?

Get your Christmas on!

When it comes to festivities, I come a lot closer to the Grinch than to the Easter Bunny. I've always dreamt of being a rockstar, unfortunatelly I have no musical talent whatsoever. So I thought that I'll just be moody and I'll stop ironing my clothes.
My friends know me for being a non-conformist and I try to stick to that image even when it comes to celebrations, because let's face it - celebrating Christmas is pretty mainstream. Initially, everything was going according to the plan - I didn't get a Christmas tree, I ate no ginger cookies and finally - I packed my bags and headed to Amsterdam. This is when the carefully crafted plan crashed and burned. To be honest, I've never seen Amsterdam this beautiful. All the lights, reindeers and fake Santas touched a soft spot and before I knew it, I was reaching out for my camera. Call it "mob mentality" - seeing all these people, rushing to buy their gifts, happilly clutching their shopping bags or cups of warm coffeee, sweapt me off my feet and once again I was a little girl and I was thinking "Oh what the heck, I love Christmas". Something I hadn't felt in a very very long time.

A DJ in a cosmetics store is something that we don't get enough of!

How are you spending this time of the year?

On the way to Amsterdam

Hi everyone!

I know, I haven't written in a while, I guess my commitment issues are to blame - I can't commit wholeheartedly even to this blog. Another reason is that I've been struck by a lack of inspiration lately. The situation changed dramatically yesterday though.
I got up at 4:30 am and hurried to the airport to catch a flight to Amsterdam. I love this place. I really do. I actually put some effort into my "flying outfit". Since Schiphol is my favorite airport ever, I wanted to have this casual-chick look the moment I stepped off the plane. Another reason is that I am terrified of flying and a cool outfit always serves to elevate my spirits. What do you think?

I was wearing:

watch - Omega moon watch
jeans - Marc by Marc Jacobs
top - Oysho
tuxedo jacket - Zara
hat - Twin Set
sunnies - Ray Ban
ancle boots - Carvela
pendant necklace - Patrizia Pepe
bag - Michael Kors
