I am always a huge fans of holiday. Even thought many people are so not a big fans of it, due to many reasons, such as the hassle for travelling back home; prepared for the huge family dinner, and/or buying the "perfect" Christmas gift. And let's be honest, those really are not the fun parts of holiday. But no matter what, Christmas is a great holiday for reunion, to get our beloved families and friends together that we may haven't seen in awhile. And the fact that getting everyone sitting around the table, have a cup of nice wine, some great hams; and talk about the great things that had happened to them it is absolutely worth all the troubles and hassles.
Personally I believes Christmas is a great holiday to shows our appreciations through gifts. When it comes to being a great gifter, the person should be very thoughtful. I personally believes a great Christmas gift does not have to be expansive, but must be thoughtful! Yes, I am sure dad would be happy to get an ipad air, or mom get a Chanel bag; but in the same time, dad maybe barely have the chance to use any high tech, or mom understand the bag is very expansive so she decided to keep it in her closet only.
In the past, I had gave many gift advises (for Christmas, birthday, valentines's day, some even for anniversary-tsk tsk tsk, seriously?). To start the whole process, the first question I always ask is what do they like; what's their current job occupation; daily habit; personality and so on, thanks to those marketing courses I took from school. My advice is to take some good notes and observations, what are they into and what do they need. Such as for those whom always cold, can't go wrong with apparel(jacket, gloves, hats, warm socks); and for those who like to exercises(gym membership, gym apparel, message certificate). The main point is just be thoughtful, because that's the point of Christmas and holiday, to let the receiver know that you been thinking about them and how much you care.
It has been an amazing year, I wish nothing but the best to my blog fans and thank you guys for being such a great supporter. Happy holiday to you all and may you guys have a great Christmas!

Some said: RULES are means to be broken. Well, that really have to depends on the circumstance. In the fashion world, there're many rules that are builds with a reason. Such as you know you shouldn't wear a lot of layers if you are not the super skinny girl, because that just make the body looks bigger. Or, if we want to look smaller(in illusion), highly suggest wear print that are bigger, because big print(flowers, geometry shape) can take away the attention of your body shape; this rules are not something should break.
Then of course, we also have those old rules, some are just sounds ridiculous. Recently, I found an article from WhoWhatWear website, it discusses the 14 Rules You Should Break, which I found very interesting and useful, and I think we can totally reconsider! My top four favors are "Mix Print Looks Messy"; "Shorter Girls Can’t Wear Midi Skirts"; "Your Belt and Shoes Must Match" and "Horizontal Stripes Add 10 Ponds".
- "Mix Print Looks Messy"- as long as we avoid to wear with other crazy print fabric, and keep them in the same color family. Mix print are absolutely durable and fun to wear to a girls night-out.
- "Shorter Girls Can’t Wear Midi Skirts"- it will be unacceptable if a shorter girl wear the midi skirts in a suit, which covers from head to toes. 2013 is the years of midi skirts, it is an elegant event party piece that many celebrities choose. As WWW suggest "Choose eye-catching heels and a more fitted silhouette", and shows a little skins, it will look absolutely flirty and ladylike.
- "Your Belt and Shoes Must Match"- Whatttt?!? since when's this is unacceptable?
- "Horizontal Stripes Add 10 Ponds" - I personally are definitely not those super skinny girls, and when it comes to horizontal stripes, I choose carefully for my collections. Therefore, I never wear those skinny horizontal stripes by itself, but it looks super fun when I wear my black and white stripes with my leather jacket, the print totally rock the whole look.
Hope this will be useful and don't be afraid to try any possibilities. - Stay elegant; Sta fashionable.
