It’s Saturday – and I’m officially on a five-day holiday for Chinese New Year. Having slept in until 12.30pm today I am feeling well-rested, but guilty – there are so many things I want to do over this break!
Here is today’s Look of the Day – shots taken in Sanlitun’s back streets. The outfit features my awesome suede knee-high boots, which I am obsessed with (thank you Zara sales!). Tomorrow I’m planning to either visit the hutongs, or check out the newly renovated National Museum which I’ve heard great things about. How are you planning to spend your weekend?
Woollen sweater + German Christmas market!
Hello lovely readers! I wanted to say a big thank you to those who sent me kind words of support on my nzgirl.co.nz articles, I appreciate it so much!
Here I am wearing one of my new woollen sweaters - a fairly casual outfit I chose for visiting the German Christmas market on Saturday The Christmas market is an annual event held at the German Embassy, where you can buy Christmas decorations, slurp cold beer or hot glühwein, make donations or purchases to support local charities, enjoy decorated gingerbread cookies and warm apple cider, and try different kinds of German snacks. That reminds me: fresh-out-of-the-oven pretzels (‘bretzel’) are SO delicious! It was the first time I’ve really felt like Christmas is getting close – and as you can tell I was pretty excited by the Christmas advent calendar my lovely friend Malaika bought for me, haha!
I really need to get on to my Christmas shopping (can you believe it’s December on Thursday already!). Have you started? Whats your secret to present shopping? I always find it so difficult! :) Well I hope you are having a wonderful start to your Tuesday, and will see you again tomorrow!
