A few years ago, we hosted Christmas for our extended family and I decided to try something a little different for gifts. I created a ‘Lucky Dip’ which is a popular Australian carnival game (commonly used at school fairs) where kids pay for the chance to dip their hand into a large box and draw out a random wrapped gift containing a surprise toy or treat inside. There’s something thrilling about discovering what prize you chose for yourself!
This hairstyle is inspired by the hair Guido Palau created for the Alexander McQueen FW16 collection. I’m a sucker for anything with a moon and star motif and one of the dresses in this collection is seriously what my dreams are made of. I think this style is fun because it’s like a modern beehive, and you don’t have to overthink the accessories that much because you can use jewelry you already own.
It’s time to deck the halls – and the tables – with boughs of holly! These holly napkin rings are sure to impress your grinchiest guest – they’re so festive and can be used year after year. You could also use these, without the wire loop, as a beautiful gift topper.
