The night before Christmas

I had imagined the day before Christmas (24:th in Sweden) as magical, perfect, cosy etc. Instead I got a migraine attack before lunch, Alexis was more grumpy then ever and the Christmas peace I was looking for felt far, far away. So much for that perfect feeling. But the evening felt better and I cooked a somehow typical swedish dish for my little family and M's parents who arrived two days ago from Geneva and tried to enjoy the evening with the rest from my horrible migraine. Ohlalaaaaaa ...
I wore the second of my new Greta dresses, this one in black silk with a little longer sleeves compared to the leopard further down. But I wore it with the leopard belt instead of the black that came with it for a different look. They are just so perfect, both for family gatherings and parties. But the most important of all is the fact that they always make you feel comfortable, not too dressed up but perfectly, casual chic.

  1. Merry Christmas and thank-you for all the ideas in your blog. There is such pressure for everything to be perfect at Christmas - perfect children, food, home etc - just like in the movies and glossy magazines. Unfortunately life just isn't like that ! I hope you manage to get some more sleep and your headache improves. I prescribe a long bath with face mask etc and let the grandparents look after the baby. Hugs.

  2. Krya på dig, hoppas migränen är borta nu och att du känner dig piggare. Du ser hur som helst superchic ut, snyggt med leopardskärpet till. Alltid fint klädd! Jag vill önska dig en riktigt varm, trevlig och mysig jul igen:) Ser fram mot att se foton på lille A och paketen. Ja och innehållet i dina också;) Julkramar fr Åsa

  3. Hi Stina, I´m your long time reader and I knew that you have migraine but I thought it is getting better already. I`ve had also terribly migraine long time ago and now it is just gone.

    I know how it feels to have migraine and it is like someone hammering on your head.

    5-6 years ago I´ve been in Singapore and bought there wooden-comb. The chinese woman who sold this comb, told me comb your hair 20 times a day and you will get no more headache. At that time I didn´t believe. After the years it is just gone. You should try it, I can give you address if you want.
