CHRISTMAS OUTFITS {holiday edition}

Xmas-Party
Xmas-Party by ell0oukaa featuring a brown skirt
Merry Christmas to all! Are you feeling festive? I do and I want to wish you all the best♥ I really, truly hope from the bottom of my heart that things will just get better for everyone from this point on. I'm ready to celebrate!
It's that time of the year again when you have to attend parties and dinners etc day after day. I know it can be stressful sometimes, having to choose a different outfit for each occasion. That is why I wanted to put together three different looks for three different needs. They do have one thing in common though...sparkles and glitter...XD It's the holidays people! It doesn't matter what your plans are-you need to feel and look festive and glam^^

The first look(header) is for me  ahem I mean for all the party girls who are looking for an opportunity to dress up and go all the way during the holidays. Christmas eve dinner party or cocktails after Christmas lunch, it doesn't matter. I am absolutely obsessed with the skirt and the burgundy heels(shocking I know XD) and that is why I wanted to lay low on the jewels. You will be shiny enough!

Xmas-Traveller
The second one is for those of you who are always on the go-even during Christmas. I have a lot of friends who are travelling on Christmas eve, but that doesn't mean that you can't look glamorous and festive. Plus this is a very chic yet comfy yet dazzling look for the airport. This grey faux fur is giving me life-and it's not that expensive♥

Xmas-Family

The final one is for the ones who are planning something low-key with tons of family and tons of food! You obviously don't need heels to spend the holidays with your grannies but those glitter flats are much needed for a proper celebration. Keep the rest dark and comfy, this way you don't really step out of your comfort zone;)
If you are still on the hunt for the perfect holiday gift for any of these types of girls, you can check out my very extensive gift guides vol.1 and vol.2!
Which one of these best represents you? What are you wearing during the holidays this year? Let me know in the comments below♥

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

My dear female readers, this post is dedicated to you, to us to be more precise! First of all, happy women's day! I hope that you are spending this day with people who love and appreciate you, with people that make you feel the way you deserve to.
Most people often associate women with clothes and makeup and "feminine stuff", but I believe this is not entirely true. Sure, we all love these, but this is not what defines us, what makes us women. I think it's the way we see things differently, our compassion, our creative touch, our sensibility and so much more. 
I remember watching a video where younger girls and grown women were asked what it is like to do things "like a girl". The message was that in most cases grown women were underestimating themselves and demonstrating the ironic perception of the modern society. Women are weak, women can't play sports, women are not smart enough.
Personally, I find that this couldn't be more wrong. I know women who are stronger than most men, just like I know men who are not good at sports and men who are not "smart enough". It's simply human nature! We can't all be the same and have all the same talents and abilities. Men usually have more muscle strength, but let me remind you that we go through monthly periods, childbirth(sometimes more than once), we take care of the house and the whole family and we go to work too. And we manage to do all these in high heels. Name one man who can do that. 
My point here is not that women are superior but just that we are all human and we all deserve to be treated as equals and have the same rights and liberties.Racism, exploitation, harassment and discrimination against women are part of our everyday lives and, unfortunately, so is rape and abuse. I don't believe in violence or war, but I believe in fighting for what you deserve and standing for what you believe.
The moment both sexes realise the importance of equal rights and mutual respect, that's when all the long-standing efforts of women will have paid off.
Today, for me, is about realising how much you truly matter and why you all deserve the best. I hope that you can all find the strenght you need and live your lives to the fullest. Don't let anyone stop you, tell you you're not worth it, not good enough. Don't let anyone, and especially yourself keep you from succeeding and being happy. You deserve it!
Now, in case nobody thought of offering you flowers today-nobody did for me-here is a pretty bouquet. To you, with love♥
