My month in pics

31 December, 2011

Hello my dear readers! Today is the last day of 2011, so this is my last post of this year…Are you excited about the New Year that’s coming?

This is my usual month in pics post, but you should expect another one with all the holiday pictures in a future post. So, let’s start:

This month, I decorated my house, my tree and my garden with Christmas lights. In the last pic you can see one of my first tries in creating bokeh effects with the lights of my Christmas tree.

Christmas lights in the garden and on the right my uncle’s tree in his garden.

This month I received some lovely gifts. First of all the necklace on the top pic was the prize I won from Rania’s giveaway on Nothing Like Fashion. The second gift was a kit of makeup brushes I wanted, that my aunt gave to me. It’s from Beauty Cycle by Amway. In the last pic, a house gift from a family friend: A Christmas cup and a platter.

Handmade Christmas ornaments that were brought to me a few years ago by my brother, from one of his trips to Innsbruck, Austria…

Some goodies I baked this month! There are a lot more but you’ll see them on the next post. I made cupcakes again, including new ones with peanut butter frosting, plus peanut butter cookies. And I gave some of them as a small gift to T. He loved them! 🙂 In the middle some yummy pasta my mother made: Farfalle with salmon and cucumber. Here’s a similar recipe if you’re interested.


This month, I managed to organize my closet, and put my winter clothes on the drawers. This is one of my closets in the middle of the “war”. The manicure I had in one of the outfit posts of this month. Some new things I bought from Oysho: new slippers (polar bears) and over-knee socks. Lastly, my kitten Moira on Christmas Day, being cuddled by my cousin.

So with these pics, I’ve finished my last post of 2011. I’m wishing you all a fabulous night and an even more fabulous year. May 2012 make all your wishes and dreams come true.

I’m sending lots of love to all of you! May this year be your best so far! 🙂 See you soon!

    I told you, today I will talk about the award(s) and tag! They were very nice, in fact, I loved them! Thank you!
    I looooved the tree and the lights! Everything is so beautiful! I could get the Christmas atmosphere! Really wonderful! Especially for me, cause I didn’t have a tree last year. I hope I have one this year!
    The presents from Austria are so sweet!
    Now the necklace – oh my WOW, is the only thing I can say! Please, do wear it, it’s marvellous!
    The cup is also a sweet one, and how nice to have a present from a friend!
    So I loved your Month in Pics and I wish you a great 2012; may you have all the best always: love, health, friends, family together and keep on being the great girl and friend you are! I’m sure you’ll reach everything you want! (And count on me!!!)

    • Thank you sweety! I’m really glad that you’re more relaxed now too and you could comment on my blog. I’m happy you liked my Christmas tree. I really hope you have one next year. I didn’t have a Christmas tree for 2 years after I lost my father. My mother was not in a mood to decorate and I celebrated Christmas the first year by traveling to Sweden. And I only decorated a plant.
      I already wore the necklace 2 times, one of them for New Year’s eve. The pics I took are not so great but I’ll do my best to show it to you in a few days!
      Thank you thank you thank you for all your amazing wishes. I sincerely wish the same for you! You’re the sweetest! And you can always count on me too! 🙂

    • Thank you very much Steph! The idea with the lights on the curtains was my mother’s. We did it for the past 3-4 Christmas holidays. We used to decorate them with some cute bows, but it’s more difficult.
      I have some more holiday pics to show, but on another post. Going to upload my new post now! see you soon! 🙂
