How is your week going? I’ve started to feel the Christmas feeling creeping in and the exciting anticipation for the festive season. We’ve also started planning our Christmas holidays, preparing dinners, decorating both office and home. I especially love this time of year as I spent so many Christmases away from my family, that I now really appreciate being able to spend Christmas with them and enjoying wonderful family time.
And, those Christmas dinners! Whether with friends, family or work colleagues, there seems to be an event every week leading up to the end of the year – and I love it!
This year I had the first festive dinner extremely early, mainly because it’s increasingly difficult to get everyone together in the same place. Consequently I have started Christmas events in November!
There’s a special place in Madrid that I love and that is just perfect for these kind of get togethers with friends and/or family, it’s called Café Murillo – it’s like a taste of New York but located in one of the best areas of Madrid.
In today’s post I also wanted to show you some great beauty products which I’ve discovered recently. With all these Christmas parties and events coming up I always want products that will make me look and feel so that I am confident for the busy diary!
- Oil from Benefit leaves the skin silky and appetizing
- the new makeup Golden Winter Collection colours from Dior are just beautiful and perfect for creating stunning winter looks.
- I love the burgundy lip tint from Isadora too.
The great ice cream painting in the photos is from the American artist, Donald Baechelor, and the grey painting is from Spanish artist Lucio Muñoz.
I hope you enjoy today’s dose of fashion, beauty and art!
