Are you ready for Christmas? It’s almost here. All the presents are wrapped and the house looks beautiful and feels peaceful.
I don’t believe in a Christmas rush. We like it quiet. No crowds, just the three of us. Oscar gets his presents in the morning, then – a special long walk, a wash and blow-dry. And then we just relax. I cook a special dinner, of course – there’s no Christmas without delicious food and warm mince pies.
For the first time this year I won’t be blogging tomorrow – it’s time to take a break and be with my little family. Blogging will resume on Boxing day and continue as usual, with a beautiful editorial and a stylish quote to inspire and a few other posts to tease and tempt and entertain you.
I hope tomorrow you will get your dream gifts (and if you get an extra Chanel 2.55 that you just don’t need – please think of me, I’ll gladly adopt it), a kiss from somebody special and hugs from the loved ones. I hope your home will be filled with love, warmth, joy and smiles.
I hope it will be just the way you like and want it to be.
Thank you for stopping by Fashioned by Love today. Enjoy this very special Christmas song in a company of Jon Bon Jovi and Cindy C. and have a wonderful holiday!

I’ve found this piece of advice in the January issue of Vogue 1973! Yes, I know, it’s been a looooooooooooooong time since that article was published, but this simple tip for achieving beautiful glossy polished hair without using any chemical solutions or heated appliances is so brilliant it must not be forgotten. Perfect for girls with a bob hair-cut or those with long straight hair.
Use a small silk scarf, rub the hair from roots to ends briskly, but gently. The silk will absorb any surface oil or dust, keep stray hairs in place, but won’t disturb the perfect line…
I just love it.

I thought it would be a good idea to publish this editorial before we all get into sparkly full-on Christmas spirit and our excited minds would probably crave something easy-breezy-beautiful (sorry, borrowed the easy-breezy from Covergirl, hense feel like I must mention Covergirl brand. Twice.)
This story is one of my favourite Natalia’s editorials. I think she looks like a frightened innocent princess who, however, never loses her ability to flirt whenever she senses the camera lens capturing precious moments of her life. So very captivating, if slightly haunting, and special.
