I hope you have all had happy holidays. I spent some very nice time with my family and friends, had a lot of good food (I made my first "Lebkuchen soufflé" and it turned out really good) and I was given amazing Christmas presents – many books, handmade sweets (yum), a handmade black and white jumper, nail polish and lipstick, Byredo perfume and beautiful bling bling! Thank you! X

Now that I'm on holiday I finally found the time to take some outfit photos again. I'm wearing my new Nike Blazer sneakers (in suede available here), my favourite coat by Sandro (a very similar version of it was redone this year), leather pants by J Brand, Alexander Wang leo bag, and a red turban which I borrowed from my sister.

If you don't want to spend 110 Euros on Acne's Neon yellow beanie (or if it's sold out) I recommend you just knit your own with neon wool. Very easy and if the thread's big enough it's finished really quickly. You can find knitting patterns online.

Today a colleague of mine said good-bye with the words "I'm off to Bali on Sunday" and while we were talking about his travel plans I made mental notes for my own next year. You have probably seen Lucy's Goa photos ... I would love to go on a Yoga trip and take some time out - India, Bali, Vietnam, ... we'll see.

I already gave you some gift ideas but since it's so much fun to choose things that will make other people happy, here are some more: star necklace, salt and pepper set, festive nail polish, Stella McCartney iPhone case and iPad case, Athena Procopipou scarf, and Jennifer Meyer diamond earrings (Wow!). (My holographic nail polish would look good in this picture, too.)

I can't remember the last time I was smitten with the beauty of running shoes. Most times they are practical and look like it. But I absolutely love the new "Flyknit One" by Nike – the colour mixes are amazing! I still have a few months to decide which one to get, as they will be in stores in February 2013.

I've posted my wish list, now it's time to think of other people. ;) If you're wondering what to get your friend, sister (or yourself), here are some ideas: Comme des Garcons "Bright Star" wallet (available here), Lasso Love ring (available here), Me & Zena heart ring (available here), Areaware cat pillow (here), Lomography fish eye camera (here), Weston iPhone 5 case (here), Lucy Folk friendship bracelet (here), Donna Wilson owl beaker, or how about pink chocolate hearts (here)?

Is it too early to think of Christmas wishes? ... I figure since I am making wishlists all the time, I can get away with it. ;) Above: Filippa Cashmere Sweater from Acne, Lilith necklace from Dannijo, Blanche from Byredo (available at Anita Hass, for instance), "Amandine" sneakers from Sandro, earrings "Dark side of the moon" and "Shoot the Moon" from Catbird, vintage mini Chanel flap (sometimes available at Malleries) and – the best – a Persian cat.

The moment I saw this nail polish I knew I had to get it. Ziggy Stardust nails! I've always loved holographic material. This "psychedelic holographic nail polish" comes from the Danish brand FNUG. (You can also order it here or here.) They recommend a special base coat to make the holographic effect stronger. I love it!

I admit it, it's neither particularly practical for winter (at least not if you live in Hamburg) nor does it make very much sense to spend a lot of money on something that is already damaged when you buy it – but still I can't help thinking how great distressed denim would look with big, chunky knitwear. My favourites come from Rag & Bone and Paige (both pictured above).

Yesterday I had to send my PS1 back to Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles because, having had it for less than six months, the hooks on the shoulder strap kept breaking and they have to be repaired. When I checked the shipping status today, it said that the German mail had sent the bag to Italy. ... Now I'm having doubts about whether this was a good idea ... I can only hope that I'll have my favourite bag soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Since I am (still) not on Instagram I have to share some of my snapshots with you here. As you can see, I wouldn't add anything unusual to Instagram anyway – just the usual flowers, cupcakes and so on. ... In the first two photos you can see a new favourite nail polish: "HAM" by Uslu Airlines.
