Sugar Plum Fairies, Macaroons, and an Alice in Wonderland Giveaway

Twas the night before Christmas (well almost)!!!

Christmas Eve is just about here and I simply can't wait to spend the evening with all my family feasting on our traditional German Christmas Eve dinner.

But until then I am enjoying a box of homemade macaroons and other chocolaty confections so many of my dear colleagues gave me as gifts for Christmas. Yum, yum, yum!

In terms of my outfit, I don't wear skirts much because I find them hard to wear. I am petite with a typical hourglass figure and sometimes I think full skirts emphasize my wider hips. Oh well, probably true, however I couldn't resist this darling little number.


This is another one of my favorite headbands to date. It is perfect for these cold winter months. Janelle Haskin on Etsy makes some of the cutest knit headbands ever.


Outfit Details: Skirt/Sweater: Modcloth, Headband: Etsy - Janelle Haskin, Shoes: Topshop



As promised I am doing a giveaway in honor Christmas and all you darling followers out there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my little blog.

Up for grabs is a necklace inspired by Lewis Carroll's, "Alice in Wonderland", one of my favorites of course which features a little bottle labeled "Eat Me" filled with lovely little fruit tart cookies.
