It’s beginning to feel like Christmas. Actually, even look like Christmas, though I do try to ignore the latter for am not ready for the sparkles, twinkles and oversized boxes of sweets yet. What I am eager to do, though, is sharing my 2013 edition of colour-coordinated gift guides.

They were very popular last year, so I decided to do it again, but instead of going for red, green, gold and silver, choose a few other shades that seemed to have more impact on me this season.

Pink was the obvious one for it was everywhere. Just everywhere. The coats. The knitwear. The make-up. We have been thinking pink, wearing pink, beautifying our faces and nails in rosy shades and practically seeing the world turning soft strawberry marshmallow hue. As a result I picked something for everyone… From books, jewellery and accessories to clothes and shoes. Even got a pair of teddy bears. Just in case.

Pink may not be the colour of Christmas as such (and the list would also work as a February edition, so do feel free to direct your boyfriend/husband to it), but it is so very pretty… I don’t think there will be many girls who would be able to resist a dose of rose or feel indifferent when admiring it.
It’s time to think pink and go shopping.

  3. Pink may not be a traditional Christmas colour, but it's one I really love for the holidays - Dior's Christmas displays in Paris last year won me over :) And I would absolutely love to find that Bottega Veneta dress under my tree!

  20. Dear Natalia, many thanks for this wonderful pink post as I´m a pink lover since a very long time :) The only problem is that now I have to decide what to buy from your admirable selection, because I fear I can´t afford all pieces ...
