Celebrating your winter wedding abroad can be a great and unique experience especially if you come from a region where you do not see snow flakes falling during the winter time and would have wished to benefit from snow settling on the slopes where you could slide down carried away in a sleigh. Now, with the occasion of your wedding festivity your wish can come true and have your special day organized in on e of those regions that snow is present in its full rights for more than 3 months a year.
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Dolomites’, Cortina offers a truly sensational backdrop for your wedding day – in fact, it’s Italy’s most popular winter wedding location! Cortina promises snow during the winter months and is home to a number of churches, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when choosing your venue – and this thriving town has plenty in the way of activities too!
Home to Father Christmas, it should be no surprise that Lapland enjoys plenty of snow – but did you know it is home to a hotel made entirely of the white stuff? We recommend the Lainio Snow Hotel (Lapland )for your wedding – this astonishing building is made up of 20 million kilograms of snow and is one of the most wondrous spectacles the world has to offer, making it the perfect place to hold your reception!
If you’re planning a winter wedding, I find out how to save tons of money :-)
Set in the gorgeous Arctic town of Jukkasjarvi, the extraordinary Ice Hotel is made entirely from ice and contains a glacial church of almost impossible beauty, perfect for tying the knot. Year-round snow adds to this unforgettable venue’s appeal, and the hotel is re-built from scratch every year – so you know your wedding will be truly unique!

Sweden- The Swedes celebrate the Feast of Santa Lucia at the beginning of the Christmas season. Santa Lucia was a martyred Catholic saint who wore a wreath of candles on her head to light her way as she brought food for the Christians hiding underground. On this day, the eldest daughter of the family dresses in a white gown with a wreath similar to Lucia’s famous one and takes breakfast to her parents in bed.
Ireland- On New Year’s Eve, at the last stroke of midnight, the Irish open their doors to welcome in the New Year. Their hope is that a dark haired man will be the first to open the door, as a dark haired man is considered a good omen.
Spain- Spain, along with people from some other Latin countries, eat twelve grapes at the stroke of midnight to symbolize the twelve months of the year. Eating all the grapes is a symbol of fortune and good luck for the New Year.
Puerto Rico- During the Christmas season Puerto Rico celebrates Asalto. In this tradition, friends show up at your doorstep unannounced singing and playing instruments. They’re invited in to drink dance and— well, be merry. Sounds like my kind of tradition.
Poland- The Polish enjoy Wigilia on Christmas Eve. Wigilia is essentially a dinner celebrated on Christmas Eve where guests enjoy different types of fish and starts when the first star of the night appears. Everyone gets a piece of oplatek, a paper-thin wafer. The oplatek is broken into pieces and offered as wishes to each guest. There is always an empty seat left at the dinner table for Jesus on his birthday celebration.

In diese Handtaschen lässt sich nicht mehr als Smartphone, Kleingeld und der Reisepass quetschen. Das tut ihrer Beliebtheit keinen Abbruch ..
Ob Louis Vuitton, Dior, und ... die Luxusunternehmen schwören gerade alle auf Handtaschen in Mini-, Mikro-, Puppengröße. Motto: Ein zierliches Einstiegsmodell ist oft erst der Anfang!
Ob Mulberry, Chloé, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu oder Dior, die Luxusunternehmen schwören gerade alle auf Handtaschen in Mini-, Mikro-, Puppengröße. Motto: Ein zierliches Einstiegsmodell ist oft erst der Anfang. - derstandard.at/2000026332815/Size-Zero-ueberm-Arm-die-Mikro-Handtasche
Wer sich für eine wie sie entscheidet, muss ihre Eigenheiten zu schätzen wissen. Mikrohandtaschen biedern sich ihren Trägerinnen nicht an, denn sie geben sich keine Mühe, ihre Alltagstauglichkeit zu unterstreichen. Unterkriegen lassen sie sich aber noch lange nicht. Ganz im Gegenteil:
Sie verlängern den Size-Zero-Trend auf den Laufstegen bis in die Armbeuge. Und verleihen jedem Outfit einen Touch Exzentrik. Längst sind sie deshalb nicht mehr nur als Abendbegleitung gedacht, sondern im Tagesgeschäft angekommen.
Is anyone else feeling like the holidays arrived faster than ever this year?
Nothing is more fun than finding the perfect gift, especially when there are so many amazing deals out there – but knowing where to look and having a strategy will help ensure you get everything on your list and for the right price. From gifts for the kiddos to something for that special someone ...
Make a list. No matter if you plan to do all your shopping from the couch curled up in your pj’s or if you’re putting on the walking shoes and hitting the brick-and-mortar shops, having a list is essential. Include everyone you’ll be shopping for in order of priority so that you can easily keep track of what you’ve purchased and what’s left to buy.
Brainstorm ideas. After you make your list, try to jot down a few gift ideas for each person. That will help guide the process and give you a bit of direction. Rather than standing in the middle of a shop, feeling completely overwhelmed, coming up with a few ideas ahead of time will help you narrow down and find the perfect gift.
Outline and stick to a budget. This is essential so that you don’t absolutely break the bank and get tempted by spontaneous purchases just because of a sale. Think about your total budget for holiday shopping and then break that down per person. Write down the per person limit for each individual on your list – and keep track of what you spend along the way. Budgeting your holiday shopping will help you feel good about your purchases and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed by what you spent.
Have fun! Buying holiday gifts for friends and family should bring you loads of joy – so enjoy it – even if you are facing crowds and lines. There’s nothing better than getting into the spirit of the season – so get out there and have a blast!
Kate Hudson has always been one of Hollywood’s best-dressed actresses. This year, the Oscar nominee has taken her style up a notch and seems to be doing better than ever. At 36, Kate was chosen for Campari’s 2016 calendar.
To celebrate the red-themed calendar, Hudson showed up to the launch party in a red sequin jumpsuit with a deep-v neckline. The jumpsuit, designed by Naeem Khan, shows off the actresses amazing figure and style. The rest of her outfit included a single Vhernier bangle and matching earrings.
Hudson knows how to rock the jumpsuit.. you too ? xx
With the holiday season upon us, the parties and festivities have likely already started. And, you know what that means? If you aren’t careful, you could start packing on the pounds. From baking cookies with the kids to the loads of treats floating around the office, having a strategy for navigating all these extra calories is essential. While staying on track with your health during the holidays may sound daunting, you’ll feel better about yourself, be in a better mood and look great at all of those parties if you stick to some simple rules. Already overwhelmed? Don’t be. Here are a few tips for staying fit and healthy over the holidays.
Have a plan. Take a look at the calendar and evaluate the holiday season. How many parties do you have on the schedule? Which days will you need to ramp up your exercise and which days can you scale back a bit? When you know what’s coming, you know how to plan – both from a nutritional and exercise perspective.
Pack healthy snacks and lunches for the office. Despite all the temptations at the office, if you come prepared it’s one of the easiest places to avoid and resist all the snacks and unhealthy items. Pack a lunch every day loaded with leafy greens, lean meats and healthy crunchies – like apple slices and carrot and celery sticks. When you feel the urge, break out your healthy snacks and have a huge glass of water – you’ll be full in an instant.
Before you head to a party, eat a healthy snack. Heading to a party when you’re super hungry is the easiest way to pack on unwanted pounds because your tendency is to head straight to the cheese plate. Rather than mindlessly eating loads of calories, fill up on something healthy first – like almond butter on a slice of sprouted bread or a couple of turkey roll ups. The protein will help keep you feeling full and will help you avoid mindless snacking.
If you want to have dessert, just go for a few small bites. You don’t have to avoid it all entirely, but rather let yourself taste a few of the delicious holiday treats. Just have a bite or two – and then walk away from the desserts. You can do it!
Make exercise a priority. Especially on the days when you’re party bound, finding time to get your daily steps in is essential to staying fit throughout the holiday season. Making that extra bit of effort to get up early will make all the difference when it comes to feeling great no matter how many parties you attend in a week. If you can’t make it to the gym, throw on your sneakers and hit the pavement each morning with a brisk walk or a light run. Just 30-60 minutes of getting that heart pumping each day will leave you feeling great.
Don’t beat yourself up if you get off track – it’s OK, it’s the holiday season after all! If you eat a few extra calories or have a bit too much to drink, get up the next morning and lace up those running shoes – it’s time to head to the gym or head outside to get moving.
Do you have a plan for making health and fitness a priority during the holidays?
