One week until Christmas – and to be honest – i can’t wait. Everything becomes a little bit more exciting and magical – listening to some good music, snuggeling up in your favorite christmas sweater and drinking and eating like there is no tomorrow. For me Christmas is simply the time of the year where i can be reunited with my loved ones and spending some quality time with for a couple of days. I know it can be hectic as well, but personally i really enjoy the build-up and preperation, with the ultimate reward of being able to relax and celebrate with my family. Personally i absolutely love getting dressed up on christmas eve but always in a comfy way to feel great the whole time. It always depends on my mood – but this year i’m planning wearing this super adorable dress which i’ve been wearing already more than 3 times! And that has a lot to say since i’m actually a big fan of trousers and usually rock them every day! I absolutely fell in love wiht the style and design and to top things off i paired this wonderful piece of clothing with this beautiful boots which makes this parisian inspired look complete.
When it comes to christmas presents i’m someone who’s a mixture of an early bird and a last minute (online) shopper! Instead of asking my loved wants what they want i always try to catch up their wishes during the year to make it even more special – and yes this means stalking mode is on. In my opinion buying a gift simply shows that you care and love the person the present is for. But whenever i’m feeling uninspired i often rely on gift guides that can help me to find something i may not have thought of. One of the benefits of Zalando is definitely the fact that you will get so many different brands at one time – and since my mum is a huge bag lover i always try to find different styles displayed on one site. The one bag which is still missing in her collection is a buckle bag, which was one of her favorite styles to wear back in the 70s. So i think bringing back some good memories with this model will be the ultimate christmas gift for my mom. So if you haven’t had the chance to find the perfect present i may have something for you. The lovely people from Zalando have provided my lovely reader a chance to win a € 100 shopping voucher to spend on their online shop! Just leave your e-mail down below and i will announce the winner in one week (23th of December). Good luck everyone!
