Christmas day seems to be getting closer and closer, and I'm getting more and more excited! The main reason why we are all so excited is because my brother Mike who lives in Europe is coming to Panama for Christmas... YAI!! We are all sooooo excited to see him!

I got a whole lot of compliments on today's outfit for some reason. Some people really liked my layered necklaces, others where smitten with my Panda umbrella. It made me feel pretty special ;)
