Visual Seasoning

I hope that you had a beautiful Christmas ... I did! But, as I am still enjoying my holiday and soaking in each moment of not having to wake up at the crack of dawn, there's still work to be done. 

Although, I really don't have to be on any particular schedule quite yet, I have done a few projects in-between, and managed to grab inspiration from various surroundings. Of course, there's more to share in the near future. 

Here's a few holiday snapshots ... I could actually capture one decent outfit shot without loads of people encircling me, so I decided to take a chance with my day #2 (casual) ensemble. 


Have a happy new year!
 
(Above) Happy floral for the season, The family advent calendar makes a special appearance, An early gift for travelling reading.
 
We killed time watching the complete series of Lord of the Rings ... well, almost!  Shortbread and homemade herb biscuits, Pre-packaging ahead of time to beat the crowd. 


 
A nice sunny chandelier shot (no filter) that I took, somehow it resembles sun bursts of a flower.
Dimmed lights, as guests leave from our last Christmas party of the year, Special candle light moments, Accessories preview from casual outfit day 2. 
An Eve gifting moment: my lovely watch obsession continues, A quick snapshot before festivities, Glass sparkling jewellery boxes with metallic ribbons.
