Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It’s time for Christmas and in a week, a New Year… it seems everything passed so fast! Is it maybe because Christmas ads and street decoration started in August this year? :) Well, time to celebrate!

Merry Christmas 2

I’ve been busy and “on the road” quite a lot this year, so I didn’t post much from a certain time on – but it’s changing again and will be better from January on. This month seems to be good for posting – we still have some days :) Time to wish everybody a great Christmas time!!!

Myself trying to participate, at least in my thoughts!

I prepared some things to eat, like the Christmas tree made of sandwiches!

As I post about beauty products and other things like bags on Stylishly Beautiful, I added to the table some of the items I reviewed!

I made the bracelet myself, with elements I bought in Greece - I wanted to wear it to pay homage to the lovely Stylishly Beautiful members!

The necklace was also made by myself, with the Greek shop things that I loved!

Nail polish - a novelty for me - never wore that color before! Dior Blue Lagoon - excellent!

A hectic month!

Dec 17th – I had a very busy November and December won’t be very different! So I have many new pictures to share, but I just want to have a day “really” off to organize everything! In the meantime, this post is still on :) – describing trips didn’t end yet! Hope you “forgive” me for the lack of posts now!

===================================

Bye busy October – welcome November, with the birthday of one of my lovely brothers:) A nice start with a nice interview – or so I think:) Hope you like it, too!

2nd Oct bad start with KLM airlines‘ huge delay to London, leading to lost luggage. KLM didn’t even offer water. They said they’d bring the bag to my door, which is right, but made me collect it. I told I’d fly to Dublin soon. Nearly missed the flight because of collecting the bag! Finally, after 8 days without going out (9 days with a thin top on), I got it. Lost “museums” time, all ruined. Solutions? The reply: “we won’t write in the usual 10 day-time”. I’m still waiting! I felt awful, even had to go to the doctor.

when things were still ok

Wonderful Rio de Janeiro! Among other things, I seek historical events. The World Cup (not my 1st one) triggered so uplifting emotions! I love pics from planes – that is Amsterdam. Me after 25 hours  flying and waiting. No makeup, tired, but things were still OKish, so why not a smiley selfie!

Things got better! I did have to buy makeup, face lotion, flats, something warm, even a hand luggage bag – they had mine with everything in. I got 2 ponchos – I wore ponchos as a child :) My granny gave me a green one, I loved it. I gave it another try! Reminds me of my sweet granny:)

Oct 10th, 2014 - Finally I could go out, to a museum, see some friends! The makeup I had to buy. I did buy the warm ponchos while KLM retained my bag - the choice was because that one, from Germany, was in the missing suitcase! Finally I could wear it!

Oct 10th, 2014 – Finally I could go out, to a museum, met some friends! The “urgent” makeup. I did buy warm ponchos while KLM retained my bag – the choice was because that purple one, from Germany, was in the missing suitcase! Finally I could wear it! So warm!

Some “October outfits“.The pink shirt honors Pink October, bringing awareness of how important the prevention of breast cancer is! Article on Stylishly Beautiful :)

Two outfits in October

1) Black jacket Les Lis Blanc, Russian hand painted brooch, pearl clutch (amazing!), dress I don’t remember and Gianvito Rossi grey shoes. 2) Pink shirt Brecho Chic, skirt from an Indian shop, laceup knee length boots Rocket Dog – very comfortable to walk!

More looks

1) Black kimono from Germany, Indian vest/waistcoat – don’t remember, jeans Asos and amazing Tsakiris Mallas shoes! 2) Vintage pleated dress, In Vitto phyton boots

I’m posting just once a month here (please go to Stylishly Beautiful for regular posts), but because many nice things happened, I’ll post again soon :) So this was the 1st part of the summary :)

And, as usual, I cooked :)

Avocado

Avocado dish, my favorite food – that was with asparagus, cherry tomatoes and penne basil salad, my take on a Chilean dish called Palta Reina that I learned from a friend some years ago – it’s now on Vegetabible page. Then squash risotto, I love it!

 To finish the summary, I posted many quotes (some that I wrote) on facebook:

Finally, thanks for bearing with me! Today Stylishly Beautiful shows my interview for the site, with things that maybe people don’t know about me yet and so on. I’m so excited!

I hope November “gives” me some time for commenting on my favorite blogs! But as Monica, a lovely blogger-friend told me once “life is what happens when we are out of the web”! :)

Thank you so much for your visit and lovely comments! I love them!

Hope you have a brilliant week with many sweet smiles!

P.S. – For my lovely Dutch readers, I have nothing personal against KLM. I have flown with them before – just that now what happened was a real pain! There’s much more than what I wrote here, believe me! It was really bad.
