Well the big day is almost here! I will be taking some time off (yes even more time) over the holidays as I will be entertaining my friend and being a tourist again. I will be back after the New Year so have a great holiday everyone! And enjoy these recipes on the big day. xo

There’s still time to decorate for Christmas! Naturally I want to try all of these; however my little room here in Germany is not really worth decorating at this point. But if I was going to these 11 Christmas DIYs all look pretty darn great. So if I were you I’d go for it.

19Dec[ diy ] Wrap It Up
I am always pleasantly surprised by all the wonderful gift wrap ideas that you bloggers come up with year after year. While I stick to a pretty basic gift wrap aesthetic (espresso wrap + red ribbon generally) these wonderful ideas do get my mind going. There’s lots of inspiration here to choose from so dig in and go a little crazy.
I was debating even posting a gift guide this year but in the end I caved. I look at this purely aspirational – an exercise in pseudo-consumerism. But that said, it’s a whole lot of fun to pretend-shop for oneself! So here it is: my Christmas Wishlist. It’s mostly shades of black of course – that can’t be helped I’m afraid. But it’s pretty uniquely me. So dear Santa, if you are listening pay close attention please.
