I can’t believe I’m talking about Christmas again, sorry about the spam but it’s only Christmas once a year and you need to make the most of it, don’t you?
This Christmas is going to be a little bit different for me. I’ll be flying to Spain to stay with my family, come back on the New Year and start a ‘new’ life. Despite a year of changes being ahead of me, I can’t wait to celebrate it, to enjoy every second and face the new changes with my best smile.
When Redrow asked me to be part of #VerymethisChirstmas I saw it as an opportunity to think about what is Christmas for me. Christmas is home for me. From decorating where I live now, to celebrate Christmas Eve with my dad’s family with high heels, party makeup, booze and delicious food at my aunt’s place. Going to my grandmas on Christmas day, usually with a bit if a headache from the night before. Have lunch with my aunt and cousins and play games the whole evening. Open the Christmas presents in the same house where I grew up and lots and lots more.
In my family we have a tradition, both, on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, you need to dress well. My mum used to buy me and my sister new outfits every year (I miss that), now we need to buy it ourselves! I’m still trying to decide what to wear by the way…
Every item on this mood board represents a little bit of my Christmas:
Christmas tree & glass bubble: it reminds me when I was little and me and my sister helped my mum putting the Christmas tree up. More than one glass bubble got broken… I think my mum still avoids them, just in case.
Apple and Cinnamon scent candle: this is how my grandma’s house smells in Christmas.
Lights: I believe that facing a New Year full of energy is the key for a successful year.
Knitting: cosy, warm, relax… exactly what I want to do between Christmas and New Year. Have some days to recover and spend quality time at home.
Makeup: I always want to look nice, and too much booze can doesn’t help it. I’m not going to stop celebrating so… ‘hello best friend’
