Getting ready for Christmas means going to Rosa’s Beauty Parlor.

She decorates for Christmas with flair and style, creating a romantic ambiance while I relax and get my hair done.

My favourite part is having my tresses washed while I recline and enjoy the warm water, rich lather and heavenly massage!


I wore my pearl gray cable-knit sweater which I bought at American Eagle. It’s so soft and long, I can wear it with leggings or skinny jeans.

Baby, it’s cold outside! So, I’m wearing my warm, red winter coat from Banana Republic with my cheerful, red roses pashmina to brighten things up! I love neutrals, but too much gray and black on a gloomy day is rather dull.

Christmas Eve means enjoying a delicious vegetarian dinner with family, going to a wondrous, musical evening at a candlelight service, and celebrating the birth of Jesus together!

Christmas morning means having a leisurely brunch and relaxing, because we open our gifts on Christmas Eve, the traditional German way.

    Or lions, as it is in this case. One of the things I love most about winter style is the sweaters. They can be cozy and warm and still be festive and ready for a cocktail. I love the sequins on this one. They make an understated lion picture that really doesn’t translate well here in the pictures. I wore this at home on Christmas Day while preparing our feast and enjoying time with family and friends.
