Christmas snapshots

To me, Christmas is definitely one of the most wonderful times of the year. I'm always so happy to get back home and spend some time with my little family. I'm more than enjoying the quiet days, the lack of obligations, the fact that I have nowhere to be. For the past few days I've been tasting all the delicious meals and sweet treats, drinking more eggnog than I care to admit, catching up on all my favorite magazines and blogs and reading by the lights of our Christmas tree (this book has really got me captivated!) Here are a few snapshots from my Christmas weekend. I really hope you're all having a fabulous time!

The detail of our beautiful orange & purple Christmas tree.

Festive table setting. Orange. Again :)

Santa was really generous this year!

The most dangerously beautiful cookies.

The most spectacular gift. Ever. Finally I´ll be able to design AND make my own clothes!

Don´t forget to follow Macarons and Pearls for more stylish and glamorous updates:
