Red passion on a wedding day

Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness – they’re the ones who deserve special place in your heart …

And because I am happy for the happiness of other people, today I want to share with you a special event which I attended – the wedding of two close friends.

The place was magnificent – Vila Vita Panonia – a hotel and a holiday village situated in Burgenland, on the sunny side of Austria. Not only the place, but also the organisation, the guests and friends – everything was amazing. One of the most existing things was of course the ceremony- like in the movies, on a small island in the lake, with the bride coming over a bridge with her father leading her – really like in a fairy tale…

We are waiting so long for this day – still when its there everything passes so quickly, like in a dream. But I like to say that the big emotions are hidden in the preparations for such an event.

I usually don’t fancy the red color, but for this occasion I wanted to wear a long red passion dress and wanted it to be really extraordinary elegant and beautiful. The length, the Schleif, the form and every small detail were important for me because I wanted to look perfect – for which I am extremely grateful to Alegra fashion who made the dress. And so I felt – walking with my husband – exceptionally good and like a princess, but in a modern variant, of course, in a fashionway.

Carnival in Lanaken and Valkenburg

I want to share with you a great experience I had in the last days in Holland and Belgium – the Carnival. In Holland, Carnival is a holiday mainly celebrated in the south of the country in the the provinces Limburg and Noord-Brabant. The inhabitants take the Carnival celebrations very seriously – they prepare a lot and make it very well organised – they dance, sing and drink, wearing colorful outfits.

Every year the Carnival has its Prince – the Prince of Carnival, who for three days, together with his subjects celebrates the temporary establishment of their Kingdom of Fools. Merrymakers make their way from pub to pub and greet the Prince Carnival with three cheers of “Alaaf”.

In Belgium the festival goes in a very similar manner like in the Netherlands – I had the chance to enjoy the fun at a local street party in Lanaken. Every year people all over France and Belgium celebrate Carnival by dressing up in vibrant costumes, striking hats and masks in a tradition that goes back centuries.

The festival has its origins in the Christian custom of giving up something for Lent. Also known as Mardi Gras, the annual event is staged to mark the beginning of a 40-day period of abstinence. And although the most famous parades are the ones staged in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro, the people of Belgium are also dab hands at creating a spectacle for the yearly celebration.

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?
