NYE OUTFITS♥ {holiday edition}

NYE #6

I simply cannot believe that this is my last post for 2015! It's so surreal. In my head, summer was just a month ago-no joke. I'm so grateful for all the good things that happened this year, and of course for all the bad ones that didn't come my way. I want to wish you and your families all the best and I pray that the new year will bring luck and happiness to us all!
Let's get to the post now♥ You know the drill, I created 6 different, completely festive outfits for NYE.
The first one(header) is just gold, some gold and a little more gold...aka...NYE! I'm obsessing over everything in this look and I would wear it for the rest of the year if I could ;)
NYE #1

The second one is very glamorous. Sexy yet chic, safe with the black yet daring and festive with the glitter. I got a little carried away after that...XD
NYE #2
The next one is for that classy yet young and playful girl. I would(obviously) wear the ears with this look for New Year's. I think it's different but very holiday appropriate!
NYE #3

The fourth one is probably one of my favorites. Very 20's sexy vavavoom, very modern-day Gatsby! I'm in love!
NYE #4

I absolutely adore the rose gold paired with the pink in the fifth look. I really like that every piece is very unique on it's own yet they all go so well together!
NYE #5

The last one is for the mature, chic and fashionable girl out there! It is probably the most comfortable out of the six, but I wouldn't call it conservative. [I know I went a little overboard with all the fur in this post but I promise I only support faux-fur, I could never put a poor dead animal on me.] Anyways, I love the whole iced silver theme here!
My last festive song of choice is this one by Michael Buble. I know it's not one of his typical holiday songs but it always makes me think of this time of year♥
That is it guys! I hope you liked my last post for 2015! See you again in 2016♥ 
Happy New Year!

THE ULTIMATE GIFT GUIDE #1 {holiday edition}

That's right! Full-on Christmas mood is here. My crazy shopaholic self has taken over and we worked together to bring to you over 250 different gift ideas for the holidays-just in case you were sceptical about what to get to your loved-ones. 
I decided to divide them into 8 different categories so you guys won't get completely lost-I wasn't joking about the 250! In this post I'm going to share with you the first four. It goes without saying that you can totally mix these and make the perfect present for your friends and family. I included gifts from under 10$ to over 1.000$(just for funXD). Stocking stuffers, full gifts and inspiration, it's all here! Let's get going!

The first slideshow(header) is about the Girl Boss. She is strong, emancipated, a bit of a workaholic, self-made, sexy and a "tad" stressed. Or just a powerful woman who loves and appreciates herself!

The second one is for the mature lady in your life. It could be your mom, granny or aunt, maybe your boss, or just the friend of yours who is simply at "that place in life". She is chic, confident and elegant and loves to indulge in luxury from time to time. She always seems to have her life-and herself-together!

We can't forget about the guys in our lives. Brother, father, boyfriend or just friend, there is no way you won't find something for him in here. Depending on his age and style, and your relationship, there are many different options here that he will enjoy.

I saved my category for last XD. I am utterly obsessed with beauty, that's not news. But your gift-receiver doesn't need to be a makeup expert to apply to this category. There are things here-like the classic rich red lipstick-that even a beginner will enjoy!
 As for my festive shopping song of choice I went for this version of a beloved classic song. I love it and after watching the video I bet you'd want to go shopping ^*

So, those were the first ones. Which category is your favorite so far? What have you bought for your friends so far? Let me know in the comments below♥

You're all that I need underneath the tree ♥
Hello guys! Omg I can't believe that tomorrow night we'll officially welcome 2015...2014 has been a wonderful yet hard year filled with happy memories and numerous achievements. I've had my fair share of struggle for this year with tons of stress, pain and anxiety. December has been one of the worst months of the whole year and I really hope that will change in the new year. Unfortunately me and my parents all got sick so there are no fancy plans for us this time. We had to cancel all our NYE plans and we'll probably stay at the couch eating chinese food and watching Woody Allen movies. I guess it's all for the best and my body is telling me to cool down and breathe and stop exhausting myself.
Anyways, after all that unnecessary blabbering, lets get to the actual post. I thought I should make one for you, last minute elfs, who still haven't figured out what on earth you're going to wear tomorrow night. Whether you're spending the night at a fancy club, at a friend's house or simply at home with your family, this is the one time when you need to shine. Honestly, nye without a touch of sparkle is just out of the question for me.
Like a girl changes clothes...
I'm not talking about cheesy, over the top, drag queen situation, but more like a chic bling-bling. I know it's hard to keep it classy sometimes and that's why most of us usually go for the safe option, a little black dress. So, I thought I should show you different ways to be sexy, feminine and festive while keeping it chic. I know, these might scare you at first, but just give them a chance, for the sake of the holidays.
The first one(header) is perfect of you're planning to dance-or eat-all night. The boots won't give you blisters and the flowy dress will keep your belly safe and sound. It's the retro take of the Christmas red, very Twiggy^*. I think the clutch adds a little extra something, but you can swap it for a basic black or gold one.
The second look is meant to confuse all your friends. It's a metallic jumpsuit that's-oh so comfy. Hopefully you won't have to use the restroom. Everything in this set is a dream come true. From the pure-artwork shoes, to the incredible Bobbi Brown palette.
The third outfit is for the most daring ones and for those who are prepared to skip breakfast, lunch and dinner for a couple of weeks. Just kidding, eat what you want gurl! Let's be honest, it's quite hard to pull off something like this but I love it so much. Plus you'll be twinsies with Taylor Swift-yassss!
The last one is the safest of all four but it's still glamorous. I would kill-not literally-for these Loubis♥ The lace and the mesh detailing make the look interesting and sexy while combined with the gold headband will make you look like a D&G girl. Plus, what a better way to start the new year than wearing the color of 2015?
I hope that you guys like these looks and maybe they will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and take your outfit a step further. No matter what you do-or wear-just remember to have fun and make sure that the new year finds you at your best. Let me know in the comment below about your plans for tomorrow.

As for me, I wish you all the best for the new year from the comfort of my couch. May your days be colorful and full of joy, love and health and may you always be surrounded by people you love and love you. At the end of the day, that's all that matters the most. Instead of adding a diet and workout to your resolutions this time(these are great and much needed too of course) try to be a better version of yourself, be kind to others even if they're not always kind to you, send positive vibes and positive vibes will come back to you. Don't be materialistic, but focus on the things that truly matter. Don't forget to love yourself and make a daily effort in all the aspects of your life.
May the new year be 2015 times better, brighter, happier and fuller of love and health than this year that passed! 
My best wishes,
Elena❤ [insert 2015 hearts and kissy faces]
