Christmas Spirit


Christmas is close! I love this time of year, life looks so much better with colorful lights all over! I wish we had a full display of lights the whole year…sigh…

These holidays for most of the people though means ‘to give’, most likely presents.

Every time I spend this time of the year at home I receive such silly gifts…of course they come from my family’s heart and I appreciate them for that, but really? Socks, box inside another box and inside of another box, chocolates (i’m too fat already!), a ‘rocker’ bandana, a green t-shirt with an ‘anarchy A’ and the list goes on…..

So, for you (and me) that are looking for the perfect gift for your significant others: STOP! and just get a GiftCard!

Last year I wrote about this mystery store on Madison Square in which there’s christmas arrangements all year round. I scratched my head for years until a few months ago, I decided to sneak around and discovered that it’s some kind of whole seller store! Duh!

Another of my christmas missions is the store window scouting. Last year I went to photograph Bergdorf Goodman’s and last night, coming back from work took some pictures of the Macy’s ones. They have a more traditional style and little bit creepy-cute displays.

Finally, if you still have to get some presents visit my Etsy Shop and buy some handmade fine jewelry and winter accessories.
