Black and White to White and Red | CHRISTMAS READY!

Only one sleep away till Christmas, who's excited? Me, me, me! I hope you have made it on the "nice" list this year, hehe. 
Ten years ago, I celebrated my very first Christmas. Before that, Christmas never existed for me. I was living at my aunt's place at the time, she would have the whole house decorated and even had a real Christmas tree. I was in awe by everything and soaked up all the Christmassy spirit. To me, Christmas time was something magical. As a ten year-old girl, I believed in "Santa". My cousins and I would write letters to the big bearded man, "Santa" and kindly asked for a few presents. Of course, we didn't forget the cookies and milk. What did I ask for as a ten year- old girl, you asked? Stationery. Ten years on, I'm still as obsessed with stationery...
Christmas morning came, you bet I was the first one to be awake. I would be sitting under the Christmas tree among all of the presents, figuring out what mine could be. I would be patiently waiting for everyone else to wake up, so I can open the gifts. When the time has come, I was a very happy child.
The year after, I would do the same thing again and write to "Santa". Maybe I was on the "naughty" list, because "Santa" didn't come... Or maybe, my parents decided I should grow up, hahaha!

Do you have an outfit ready for Christmas? If not, don't fret! Take a look in your wardrobe and work with what you already have. Black and white isn't exactly Christmassy, eh? But red and white most definitely is.


Skirt | Boohoo 
Necklace | Jolie & Deen
Bracelet | Colette 

Voila!! Just pop a red skirt over the dress and jazz up the outfit with some gold accessories and you're good to go!



In case you are wondering why I am showing so much epidermis in the outfit, is because I live in the southern hemisphere and it's summer here in Australia. I'm incredibly jealous of those of you that have white Christmas. Watching all of the classic Christmas movies doesn't help either. I hope to be able to experience it one day. Make sure you layer up, wear some tights (shimmery ones works well for the occasion) and a cardigan.


My friends wrote me the sweetest cards that had me from smiling from ear to ear. You guys know that I have a card/letter
 collection addiction... Is that even a thing?

For me, glitter and sparkle are a must for a Christmas manicure. 


One of the things that I'm most excited about Christmas is, gift giving. Surprisingly this year, I finished my Christmas shopping early. Usually, I'm a last minute person. I guess I was organised and had written a list of what I wanted to get for people. Picking out presents that tailored for each individual's taste and seeing their reactions is quite rewarding. Makes me all giddy inside.  
  
Lip | Rimmel's Provocalips in 550 Play With Fire

For ze hair, I went with super loose, effortless waves. As for makeup, I went with the classic black and gold combination and finished off with a classic red lip. This is pretty much the look that I'll be rocking for tomorrow. 

I WISH YOU A MERRY, HAPPY, AND JOYFUL CHRISTMAS!!

What's your Christmas tradition? What did you ask for this Christmas?

  3. You look so pretty Natalie! I love the outfits! Christmas has always been special for me not, just because I was born on Christmas Day, but the reason for the season, the decor, festivities, etc. It's a beautiful time of year. Don't feel bad about not having a White Christmas it doesn't snow much in the Southern Region of the United States either lol. I hope you have a wonderful Merry Christmas!
