stay strong the week is almost over. I felt like this was an extra long and extra full week. Many appointments, many things to do and on top of that all of my ordered presents got in so it is also a lot of christmassy chaos in my home office.
I am really happy to have some time on the weekend to wrap the presents and prepare our home for our dinner party on Saturday. December totally is our busiest months of the year in comparison to the rest of the month.
So you probably know by now that I am leopard print obsessed and this sweater is an absolute gorgeous addition to my closet. It is a little longer than a normal sweater and has an oversized fit that works perfectly for the bump. I still only have purchases two maternity jeans and two maternity leggings. The rest of the things I am wearing are normal clothing.
To keep the focus on the cute leopard print sweater I added black leggings and my favorite pair of overknee boots. So that there are no other huge textures and patterns I went with to steal the focus from the leopard print.
Do you still love the leopard print or did you move on to the snake print trend and left the other behind?
we are in the countdown to Christmas or at last in the middle of preparations for the biggest holiday of the year. So with all the different customer services stores have to offer you can almost everywhere get your gifts wrapped and place them under the tree the minute you get home.
I don´t like to make use of this service cause first of all I love gift wrapping and second of all you can give every present a personal note so that the person who receives it knows exactly it is from you. It is so easy to personalize each gift.
These are the things you will need: gift wrapping paper, bows, little ornaments and branches, little cards or gift tags and eventually empty boxes. All of these things are available everywhere at this time of the year.
If you have soft gifts or gifts with a strange shape it is best to put them in a box first cause the present turns out more pretty if you have a rectangular box to work with.
The last of my presents are coming in tomorrow so I am going to be done gift wrapping by the end of the week. I like to wrap them up as early as possible cause it looks super decorative and festive under my tree.
Are you gifting a personal note with every gift or do you love the convenient wrapping stations at the department stores?
I am probably sharing my most favorite gift guide with you today (besides the beauty addict one) – the hostess gift guide. I love love love hosting dinner parties and gatherings. This would totally be my hobby if it was possible in any way. It is not only the cooking and serving food I enjoy a lot, it is also the table decor. I can be so creative and put a lot of thought into it. Also it never get´s boring or I run out of ideas cause every season and holiday is different and there are so many possibilities.
So today´s gift guide really is for all my hostesses and hosts out there. I added a bunch of stuff I have and use and truly love and also some things I ordered or are on my wishlist.
today I am taking a break from all the shopping and Christmas posts to share a look I have been loving lately. A sweater/skirt combo. Also it is one of the few things that still fit me well so there´s that.
Also snake print is huge as the moment and a real threat to my beloved leopard print. I love to combine the actual print with a plain pastel or vibrant colored shirt/sweater and keep the rest in nude or black.
The black boots and the black bag are the perfect addition to the print of the skirt. Snake print is absolutely versatile as it combines well with a bunch of plain colors.
Also the nursery is coming together perfectly and hopefully will be done by the end of the month.
I am continuing tomorrow with another gift guide and I have also planned on sharing how I wrap my gifts and add a personal note to them.
