Your eyes are sparkling.
You see someone you love. Someone you had a laughter with. Someone you share so many beautiful memories with.
Joy is in the air. Dimmed lights surround you. Some candles are flickering in the dark.
…sitting on a table with your beloved family.
…having a date night with your significant other.
…meeting some friends at a party.
No matter how you spend your holidays. It’s important to keep all those wonderful moments in your heart.
We don’t take much time to celebrate these days. Times are stressful. We often forget how wonderful it can be to sit back and relax while meeting some people you love.
Turn off your phone and open up your hearts.
I’m sure it’ll help you to sparkle.
At least a little.
Appreciation is the magic word.
We appreciate far too little.
Be thankful for the things you have. For the big and little presents. For the materialistic and non-materialistic ones.
A long forgotten smile can be so gifting. And of course the eagerly awaited Prada bag can be too.
No matter what makes you sparkle at the end of the year I’m sure it’ll be great.
What makes me sparkle this year?
Well. It’s my boyfriend for sure. No one can make my eyes sparkle as much as he do.
It’s also the time in Paris and Rome with my good friend Rafia.
It’s my family which encouraged me as it turned out how bad my thyroid disease really is.
It’s to see my little nephew growing up. Making his first steps and saying his first words.
It’s also you, my dear Reader, as I’m really appreciating every support you show me.
It’s of course also materialstic things like the new lenses for my camera or the golden Gucci shoes I bought myself as a birthday present this year.
But what makes me sparkle the most is life itself. The will to make the best out of every moment. To develop and to learn. To lead the possibly best relationship to myself.
So what I want you to do is to bring the spark back into our lives.
Even when it’s only in the way you dress. If you went to some shops lately I’m sure you discovered the huge range of sequined dresses, glitter tops and golden bags as well. Why not adding some of those to your party wardrobe?
You can find my personal favorites in the shop section below.
What makes you sparkle this year? What were your joyful moments?
Sending you lots of love,
