I guess no matter what your spiritual (non-)persuasions, winter solstice is the perfect time for relaxing, meditating on the ups and downs of life, playing games that guarantee tears and loud discussions over who the winner is, munching the good food and slurping the alcoholic drinks (thus providing us with the usual new year resolutions of cleaner livers and less calories). And while I'm set on keeping it this way for a few more days I just wanted to emerge for a moment to wish everyone HAPPY DAYS - warm or cold, winter or summer… (Celebrating Christmas in a bikini at the beach – surrounded by German expats who all mourned for snow and Christmas markets - must be one of my favourite memories, though without the whinging it might have been even better) and to say: Sara from Purses Pastries Etc. is the winner of the versatile skirt. Congratulations, Sara! & Thank you all for your kind words and for taking part in the giveaway. Muah, muah! Back soon!
