It's Christmas time, mistletoe and wine... Someone bring me a glass (or five) of vino whilst I mull this over. I am tragically unprepared this Christmas. I've finalised the gifting part, at least I think I have because I have an alarming inkling that I may have forgotten someone. Which is not good, not good at all. It's too late for me now because I refuse to venture willingly into the chaotic madness that is the parking lot of a shopping centre. Ain't no one got time for that. I also haven't contemplated an outfit either. Any suggestions guys? Thankfully it's set to be rather mild so maybe I'll fish out my trusty black denims and a vintage muscle tee. Nothing fancy-schmancy. What sartorial splendour will you be sporting? Casual or your Sunday best?

Anyhoo lovers this will be my final post for the year, so for now I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2015. Whatever you may celebrate and wherever you celebrate, may it include lots of love, happiness, good food and wine (or whatever your drink of choice may be). I'm going to take a little time off to work on a new layout for the blog and jazz shit up a bit. Rest assured though, I'll be back dazzling you in early 2015. But if you begin missing me, feel free to check out my shenanigans over on Instagram: @soniademacedoFacebook and Twitter. I'll be fairly active on those mediums so while you wait be sure to check out my photographic shenanigans over there.

With that Merry Everything and a Happy New Year kids. May 2015 be awesome to us all.

Love and light.

  2. Great images very festive. Is a stressful time of the year take a breather put thought to the gifts sometimes the simple things put a smile in someone face order online if the mall is to much. The denim great suggestion comfortable add a top with some glitter and cute booties or heel and you ready to go doll. Have a Happy Holiday may it bring blessing to you and yours.

  4. I'm with you - the stores are CRAZY this time of year, I avoid them as much as possible. I had to do the grocery run today...even the local woolies was packed! Tomorrow I have to brave the crowds once more just to pick up our dessert (I'm making dinner, dessert will be made by someone with skill so that we will still have a good time if I wreck the meal!). Hoping to get out early and back home before the madness begins!

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  21. Hi Sonia,
    I always feel like there is someone I have forgotten. Usually and thankfully, I am wrong. I'm going quite casual this year. It' going to be very quiet around here. If I had my way, I'd stay in my Christmas jammies all day but alas, you never know who may come acalling:)

    I will definitely be sipping on some wine and eating all the goodies I shouldn't be eating. Hey, it's Christmas after all:)

    Your picture is stunningly festive. Love the VW, lol...I too am contemplating a new look on my blog for 2015. Key word, contemplating, lol...You enjoy every moment of this holiday season, Sonia. It has been wonderful getting to know you and your blog these past months. I look forward to spending time visiting in 2015!!! Merry Christmas Sonia and a Very Happy and Healthy, Prosperous New Year!!! Louise
