In The Mood For

{I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with those you love}

It's incredible that I still get amazed by how fast Christmas festivities go by year after year and how quickly time slips away. Another whole year of our lives has gone by and so much remains unfulfilled. I always get a little thoughtful after Christmas, maybe because it always makes me realize what really matters and puts everything else in perspective; I guess most of all, it makes me slow down from the rush of life with its endless to-do’s and just be grateful for what I have and where I am in life. I'm in the mood for...

{traditional Christmas arrangement - holly, naturally}

{new books I am going to read avidly asap}

{goodies for the new house I'm eager to give good use to}

{an intriguing scent that I'll review very soon}

{my favourite Christmas gift}


  1. Black Opium, amooooo, continua a ser um dos meus favoritos!!! Já eu no pós Natal fico sempre é de rastos, mesmo, psicológicamente então, ui ui!! Os meus Natais têm tudo para fazer com que eu trema de horror em antecipação e odeie a época natalicia, e no entanto... não consigo não adorar esta época, não consigo não vibrar mal chega Dezembro e sei que vou poder decorar a casa para o Natal, e não consigo deixar de sentir que essa mesma casa fica super vazia e triste mal chega Janeiro e desmonto a árvore e a aldeia de Natal...

  2. Oh, lucky girl, that IS a great Christmas gift. Christmas is a plot to keep us busy until the days start getting longer again. Don't get me wrong...it's a GOOD plot. Mine was lovely, and it looks like yours was, too.

  3. Oh, a lot of wonderful gifts!

    Happy Holidays!
