Some gifts are big. Other are small. But the ones that come from the heart are the best gifts of all. /Tinku Razoria/

I hope you’ve got already your Christmas gifts, but at Fracomina there is always something to look for. And if you want something really special, you can have a look at the premiere collection. I feel always great wearing Fracomina – it is a different and outstanding Italian style.

Year review

Decorating the Christmas tree this year, I looked at the year behind and it was just like a Christmas tree – full with moments in different colors, up and downs, great memories, challenges and experiences.

Going back and reviewing the year can be hard sometimes. But it’s important to see what worked and what didn’t, and then go ahead and analyse. Last year was very good for me – I was able to finish most of the things I wanted, had a lot of spiritual growth, learned a lot, found a wonderful team to work with and got more motivated. What an year! Can’t wait to see what the new one will bring! I am very excited about 2019.

And are your achievements in 2018? Have you already started to sum up your year and getting ready for 2019?

In those last days before the end of the year take your time to relax, gather energy for the new one and focus on what brings positive vibes.

Memories take us back, dreams move us forward, that’s why learn from the lessons of the last year, to make the next one your best!

P.S. I am very happy with this snake printed outfit.

Jingle Bells

My message to you today is the essence of the traditional Christmas song „Jingle Bells“.

We relate it with the arrival of Christmas and Santa Claus, to the delight of children of all ages. Let the bells ring and Christmas come! Ho-ho-ho!

May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve!

“Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh…”

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air

I would say Christmas has always been one of my favourite time of the year. Maybe because of the special atmosphere that you can feel everywhere, in shops, restaurants and even streets, where you can hear the magical carols and seeing all the excited people rushing to buy presents for their loved ones. And all that because Christmas is more than just a big day, it’s all the little things that make it extra special: the decorations, the presents, the cooking and so on. All in all – a time that does magic to people – and the preparations for the magic is likely more exciting than the celebration itself. So, have you already created your own magic?

Santa, I have been good this year!

Usually in December we take a look back at the passing year. But I do not like to focus on the good or the bad, because each year has its ups and downs… I rather think we should let the past be the past, stay positive and expect only good things to happen in the future. And when we all do our best to be good and have good intentions, the usual questions like “Have you been a good girl/boy this year” or “You know Santa only comes to good children, don’t you” are not necessary to ask.

So, “Santa, I (we) have been good this year” – please stop by every house this Christmas :).

Keep it casual, street and teen

This is not the style that I typically go for, but it has crept into my mind as of late – to go casual, street style, effortless and even in a teen way. Hardly a new trend, the ripped jeans with sneakers always make a great spotlight with their simplicity. And although red isn’t my color, a red blouse brings a good feeling. But In this case the best feeling comes from wearing the Guliano Gudman shoes – which makes you feel like a star – not just because they have the falling star on them, they are comfortable and fashionable, but also because this pair has red hearts added as a small detail. Can’t resist feeling in love with them!

Why black and white makes you don’t think about what you wear

The black color makes everyone amazing – black is elegant and chick, black makes you slim and looks good on all skin tones and hair colors. But the white touch to the black makes wonders.

Coco Chanel said it in the best way: “Woman think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony”.

A black and white outfit is always stylish, that’s why I’m not only feeling great in a black and white combination – I feel like not thinking about what I am wearing.

In this line of thought, two favorite phrases of mine pops up in mind: “Whatever you think, think the opposite” and “ Even when going all black, add some white, too”.

Black and white looks as good on men as it does on women – same is true for those fine shoes from Guiliano Gudman – they are available in both “Star Boy” and “Star Girl” flavors.

Green mint color kick

The cold and cloudy weather does not bring the best mood – that’s why I decided to wear something bright and cheerful to light my sprits up. I added a little color kick to my outfit – the green mint color jacket paired with a bright pink shirt and of course with my favorite Guiliano Gudman shoes, which have the same color and a Leo touch. There are so many more cute shoes you will find here, that can make your wish list keep growing.

I love today’s outfit because it is such an unusual color combination that works! What color combinations have you tried that work? I am always looking for new ways to mix it up in a fashionway.

So, get mint green into your outfit because like the fresh mint taste, mint green has its fesh and cool kick!

Fracomina stories continued

The right pair of jeans can make you feel taller, sexier, even I dare to say happier. If you’re tall – a slightly boyfriend and relaxed jeans like these Fracomina ones with roses.

Relaxed jeans are always a good choice – a loose fit from the waist to the leg opening, a relaxed cut denim is not going to hug any part of your body.

To complement this outfit – a Fracomina cardigan is always a good touch.
