Collective Courage – Crossover Christmas get-together

The end of the year was such an emotional time for me, full with events. It is also the time when we tend to remember the good things that happened to us through the passing year and one such event is what I want to share with you now here – the Collective Courage Crossover Christmas get-together in Vienna.

Friends, business partners and celebrities gathered for this wonderful occasion to celebrate Christmas together and to present themselves. So, I was given the chance to present something myself, too. Next to promoting my blog I also chose to present the marvellous new collection from my very good friend and a great designer from Bulgaria – Gergana Apostolova from Kiara Fashion. Her magnificent dresses can make any woman wearing them feel like a princess. I wore two of those during the show next to miss Burgenland Miriam Millonig who was also fascinated by them.

Merry Kissmass!

This festive season is so much more than Christmas parties and gift giving. It is a special time to enjoy with all your loved ones, spreading divinity and cheer around. So, may your Christmas be filled with the true miracles and meaning of this beautiful time.

Celebrate the Wonder and the Joy of Christmas, give your love and may love and prosperity follow you always! I wish you a very merry Kissmas!

Have a holly jolly Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great and feeling super festive! I can’t believe that Christmas is already here… So exciting! In line with the festive mood, I want to share this post called „Have a holly jolly Christmas“, just as my outfit here says.

It’s the most magical time of the year and I guess you already have your Christmas tree and some festive plans coming up. For me, I always linked these holidays to the tree decoration, the family comfort and the Christmas mood.

So, I wish you for this Christmas Eve lots of wonderful moments with your family and/or friends, and may it bring joy to your hearts and happiness to your home!

Double chocolate and then add some kiss

In Vienna, when the weather refuses to cooperate, you can always go inside – either shopping, or like me here – in one of the best traditional chocolate and cakes coffee house – Gerstner. I like to eat there a strudel and drink a melange, especially during the Christmas holidays when the mood inside is so unique. I adore this old style beauty you can see in the photos.

With the most beautiful holidays of the year just around the corner, I cannot resist the pieces of art they have here, so beautifully packed as presents. 

In the glamour of this pastry shop, I continue the silver glitter trend from my previous posts – my outfit consists of silver Calzedonia leggings, a black oversized sweater, a cute short gray cape and black booties also with a silver touch.

And to all of you, for the coming Christmas, I wish you a double chocolate and then add some kiss.

The magic of the Christmas markets in Vienna

Vienna puts on her best clothes to welcome Christmas and all its guests. So many people visit Vienna for Christmas, and I think I know why – here we have one of the most wonderful street decorations in the world. All the streets are well decorated but my favourite are the chandeliers on the Graben – impressive and elegant at the same time.

But it’s not only the festive decoration on the streets that impress so much – the Christmas markets also offer a great experience. The one at Rathausplatz (the Vienna city hall) is the most visited, but there are so many others that don’t fall very much  behind. Some examples are the markets at Maria-Theresien-Platz, the one at Schloss Belvedere and Schloss Schonbrunn, the one at Karlsplatz, at Unicampus in the 9th, etc.

And although there is no snow (yet), neither are the temperatures too low, the Christmas mood is in the air. With great pleasure I walked through this market, wrapped in one of my all so favrorite teddy bear coats. Underneath I have a checked skirt and the outfit gets complete with comfortable long sock boots and a matching tiny black bag.

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 :).
