As the year comes to an end we all find ourselves comenting on how fast the year went by. Well for me it isn’t about how fast it went by but how much fun I had. This year I started my blog, had my party, visited the VOGUE offices, went to a Wes Gordon show, and on top of that had the most amazing vacations ever. It was a great year for me but now lets get to the juiciness of the year. CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, probably because I am the only person to which it is soothing and relaxing. My guilty pleasures on the holidays are watching cooking shows (yeah Im like a 60 year old fat lady) and of course shopping. I cook with my mom and often have dinner on the 24th with all f my family, from both my mother and dads side. We are about 20 and it can get a little crazy but we always have fun. As I live in Argentina we have lots of salads and ice cream. We gather together on the 24th and have at 12 am sharp “Santa Claus” (often some uncle with lots of cousins) comes and leaves the gifts. We open them trying to guess what they are. Everything from Christmas is awsome like decorating the tree or opening the gifts
But around his time of the year people become stressed and run around looking for what to buy to their relatives, “Will he like this? Is it to expensive?” or the cooking “Should I cook? Should I just order a caterer? How many people will eat?’ Well the world becomes this huge craziness and the only people who are safe from it are people which live in islands.
Christmas shopping is probably one of the most difficult things to do, specially when they are for people you care about. Candels from Dyptique or Books from Assouline are often a very good options, they are almost always liked by everyone.
Dressing up for the holidays is not at all hard too. Try dressing accordiong to theme like a little white dress, it can also be red, gold, silver but try to keep it as simple as possible in order to be able to enjoy and have fun dancing and singing.
So the key to success in this holidays is relaxing and having fun since gifts may come and go but memories are forever. Enjoy your time with your family and think about all of the good things that have happened and forget the bad parts which will only hurt you. Take a break and stay away from the gossip and computer, like I will do and just try to see what matters most to you.
Love and Happy Holidays
