"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone has recovered from Thanksgiving/Black Friday madness and is enjoying getting ready for Christmas :) We got our house all decorated this weekend so it looks very festive! I just wanted to put up a quick post to apologize for my lack of posting/comments lately. Unfortunately, my darling grandmother passed away just days before her 93rd birthday. She was a wonderful woman and we will have a nice service to celebrate her life! I promise I will be back as soon as I have helped my mother with all the arrangements and spent some quality time with my family. In the meantime, I will leave you with some pretty photos of things I find myself adoring these days :) Perhaps they will even give you a few gift ideas!
Wouldn't these precious topshop beauties make the perfect holiday party shoe?? The bows add the perfect "wrapped up present" appeal!
I think by now you have all figured out my love for anything that sparkles and shines and who doesn't adore a sequin mini this time of year! Hop on over to Victoria's Secret and see the four other fabulous shades this skirt comes in!
Ok, so this is not likely to be a Christmas gift for most of this season, unless you happen to be a very lucky girl! But you know it is still way fun to drool over! I have to admit that I dream of a day when I own a classic Chanel 2.55. It is the Louboutin of purses and will forever be on my lust list!
I have had my eye on this fierce Shock Boutique accessory ever since Erika hosted it as a giveaway! And with the fabulous 25% of code they have so graciously offered my readers and myself (just use SHOCKTWEET) I am finding it harder and harder to resist scooping it up and adding a little rawr to my collection!

Love to all my blogger friends and I promise to return to normal posts very soon!
