First of all, I want to thank ALL of you for all the sweet, loving, understanding, (and funny), comments you wrote me yesterday regarding my skirt in the wind story. I really appreciate everything you all wrote! In the end, I just laughed about it and it didn't bother me anymore. Now I just think about the incident as a funny story to make me laugh. I felt specially good since the guys that always stare didn't bother me this morning... so all is gooooood :)

I love the twinkling lights, the music, the tree, the wrapping presents, the hot chocolate (yes, I drink hot chocolate in December even if I live in a tropical country), the Christmas movies, etc. I just love how joyful everything is!

  1. Hi there! Your new follower is speaking! ;) You look adorable. Especially I loved the nail polish and you zipper headband!

  2. This weekend (as the first weekend of Dec) is my traditional 'holiday decorating' weekend. I'm pretty pysched, although I don't do a lot it always makes me happy to have a tree with lights & presents. Also, these shoes are super awesome. And I'm totally loving your panda ring!

  3. I love Christmas too! It is my favorite holiday! Cute outfit too! :)

  4. The bow on your top is absolutely adorable! So sweet, just like you :)  We get into the holiday spirit too. Baking cookies and listening to music is a tradition. We also love the movie Home Alone.

  5. Love the skirt and shoes! Thanks fog your comments on my blog Marie! xXx

  6. Marie, I LOVE Christmas as well! Like a little too much, I think. When the tree is up, I get even sappier. hahaha. I love your panda ring! I think you have the cutest accessories! 

  7. Christmas is fabulous! I love how you used purple and pink, rather than the traditional green and red.

  8. You are seriously one of the most beautiful people ever.  I'm not kidding.  I love your smile.  You do your makeup so well.  Your outfits are always super adorable.

  17. Hello, my young beautiful blogging friend! It's been so long since I got around to comment. I think this skirt is my favorite of all of yours, -- I love florals, and the black and white just makes it so much classier. In fact, I've been meaning to knock it off at my sewing table sometime,but so many other projects have gotten in the way!

    Mmmm, Christmas, yes, especially with a young childI'm enjoying the season more. The boys put up our tree today but we'll decorate it friday night (goose's birthday) with a couple of friends ...

  18. That is a nice blog you have there, nice pics and fabulous mixes! Found you at Trend Wisely!
