2011 - let it end in style!

Right now I'm sitting in the living room of one of my best friends in Munich drinking Champagne, eating macarons and thinking of all the fabulous experiences and travels I had in 2011. I was attending two Berlin Fashion Weeks and travelled to Paris, Capri, Malta, Tunisia, Valencia, Rome, Corsica and NYC. All in all, it was a great year and I would like to use this opportunity to thank all my friends for their support and all my photographers - family, friends and colleagues - because without their effort my blog wouldn't exist. Then again, a big THANK YOU to all my readers in 2011! Let's end 2011 in style :D ! Let's get the random recap started...

Leopard print meets fur!

When it comes to fur, and I mean the real thing that the Olsens and Wintours of this world are wearing, I only do vintage. Kind of salves my conscience - at least a little bit. Fur jackets are just so chic and warm. So naturally I'm in love with my mum's vintage fur jacket - it's just the right color, length and size. But don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of faux fur as well. How about you? Faux or real or both?

Curls curls curls!

I love those last days of December. All you have to do is relax and wait for the New Year to start. It's usually the time when I meet old friends, reorganize my wardrobe and start experimenting with my hair as you can see in the photos. The curls go so well with the Peter Pan collar of my new Zara blouse, don't you think? ;o)
I made the curls with hot curlers and used tons of hair spray to fix them (otherwise they will be gone within an hour). I also own a curling iron, but it takes ages... What are you using to curl your hair? Or do you prefer the sleek look?

Stars for Christmas - groundbreaking!

Yay! Christmas day has finally arrived and I'm wearing stars - groundbreaking, I know ;)
I wish you, my dear readers, a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Also, I would like to use this opportunity to thank you all for reading my blog and for all your lovely comments. My blog was born in July 2009 and in the past two and a half years I have learnt so much about blogging (basic HTML programming during sleepless nights), photography (I really wanna start saving for a new lense) and, of course, about me as a person and my personal style. Sometimes, I wish I could blog more often, but since I have a full-time job it's quite difficult to find some time to squeeze in a photo shoot, so the results are not always perfect, but nothing is, right?! I constantly try to improve my posts and I honestly appreciate each single comment from you and each new reader. THANK YOU SO MUCH, GUYS! You're the best readers in the world :D

One day until Christmas!

I was all work the last few days, but now, I can start to relax and enjoy the holidays with my family. Yesterday, I had a quick lunch and went to buy the very last minute gifts after work. It was so crowded everywhere, but joyfully crowded because it's Christmas :)
Hope you're having a great one!

Books and a candle

When it's snowing or raining outside all I want is to stay at home, light a scented Christmas candle and read a good book or browse some magazines and coffee table books :)

So far, December has been one cold and rainy month with only a few vanishing snow flakes, but it's snowing now - yay! Now it's almost time to start the Christmas countdown, less than a week to go. What are you wishing for?

Fancy Socks!

Just had to share this picture with you! It shows Mr. C and me right before we hit the Christmas market :) Makes me realize how utterly important shoes are to complete a look. But hey, we are wearing our fancy party socks. Mr. C's socks are from COS and mine are from Forever 21.
Have a great weekend everyone!

This skirt is the star!

So in love with my new Zara star print skirt. It's so light and airy and paired with a warm cashmere knit it works perfectly on sunny December days, don't you think? The pictures were taken on Saturday in the park in the city center, which was such a crazy idea, because the city was packed with tourists shopping Christmas gifts and visiting our Christmas market. But somehow I kind of got used to people standing around watching me jump and pose... guess you just need to develop the blogger gene... hahaha :D
Anyway, we got lucky and even caught some shafts of sunlight. Hope you like the result!

Christmas market and giveaway winners

Another picture of me with a mug of mulled wine at the Christmas market. It's my Saturday tradition during Christmas time :) Now, I've almost got all the gifts for my friends and family, so I can lean back and relax. Speaking of gifts, here are the lucky winners of the McGregor Fashion Christmas giveaway...

Don't stop me now!

...'cause I'm having such a good time! Well, sometimes the best part of a night out with friends is dressing up together and having a little pre-party at home :) That was exactly what Mr. C and I were up to last weekend. But in the end we had to shut down our little pre-party in order to make it in time for our dinner reservation :D
I'm wearing my Blair-Waldorf Marc Jacobs dress - one of my all-time favorite dresses, which I actually bought before I even knew the Gossip Girl series, so you can expect how surprised and excited I was when I saw Blair Waldorf wearing it - oh and yes, this is the kitchen and bathroom of my flat :)
Have a great weekend everyone and remember to enter my McGregor Fashion Christmas giveaway which ends tomorrow!

On the run...

Christmas is coming closer and closer and I still have to get some Christmas presents. I'm not a big fan of last-minute shopping, so I think I'll go get them tomorrow and start ordering some presents online over the weekend. What about you? Have you bought any presents yet?

Somewhere only we know

One of my best friends came to visit me this weekend - on our schedule: Lots of food and cocktails, mulled wine at the Christmas market and some Christmas shopping. I love it when friends visit me for the weekend, because after a night out, you can curl up in front of the TV together the next morning, have breakfast and keep chatting until afternoon :D
Of course, we also managed to shoot some new photos for the blog. We found this amazing location on Friday right before dusk. It reminds me of my favorite song from Keane, Somewhere only we know, hence the title of this post. What do you say?

Hallo December!

I prepared myself for the cold season with another Aztec knit from Isabel Marant. Already got the cream one, but since the black one was also on sale and my size was still left, I just couldn't resist, they're so comfy, cozy and warm ;)
