The end of 2011

Wow, 2012? Really? I can't think of a year that has gone as quickly as this one. For me it's been one of the best years in my life. I can't believe that a year ago I was packing for Madrid... tempus fugit! Living in another country was an incredible experience and I'll always remember it as a dream. For me, it will always be one of the fondest memories I have. 

I have to say, there is a weird sense of ending this year. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I haven't really realize it's December yet, or maybe it's all that chit chat about the end of the world. Weeks ago I saw Melancholia, from Lars Von Trier, and I can tell you it's one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. The way he and Kirsten Dunst portray the end of humanity is poetically beautiful, in such a sad and melancholic way you wouldn't imagine those things could coexist. And somehow it's exactly how I feel about the year reaching to its end. There's certain melancholia about the things I lived this year, but they were insanely beautiful, and even if they have reached the end, as everything does in this world, I'm very happy to have lived them. 

In the other hand, I couldn't think of a better way to close 2011 than appearing in the online post of "Bloggers' Style in New Year's Eve" along with Andy from StyleScrapbook, Denni from Chicmuse and Kari from Your Mother Should Know, who is now in charge of the invited blogger spot (be sure to read her!). 

What do you think of my Christmas tree? You can check the full spread here to see one of my favorite outfits for New Year's Eve and what my fellow bloggers wore.
I have to say goodbye now, but we will meet again in 2012. Wish you the best and most beautiful year of your life, full of joy, desires, passion, shoes and a lot of love. Thank you, to all of you.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is finally here! This is definitely one of my favorite holidays and every year I enjoy all the little rituals and traditions, cooking, setting the tree, decorating the house, etc. And even though this year has been quite strange, it's the perfect time to celebrate our families and friends and to be grateful for all the love we have in our lives.

I can't thank enough to all the people who are in my life for being such amazing persons in every aspect, to my family and friends and to every person who has taught me something.

To every person who reads me, I wish you the best best best Christmas of all time! I leave you with the 24th video of Love Magazine, Lily Donaldson dancing to my favorite Christmas song, Rockin' Aroung the Christmas Tree, enjoy!

Black and White Night by Privalia

Last week Privalia organized the last bloggers' night of the year in Celeste House. Needless to say, it was a huge success where friends, work and fun met in the same place. Martinis, macarons and tons of pictures made of this night a true delight. Thanks so much to Privalia and to Bel for the invitation and the lovely gifts, you really know how to throw a party!
