I know this post is not about fashion, but forget the fabulous Christmas outfits, the big diners, the glamour parties and the surprising presents for a while. Christmas is on the way and time to spend some of your time to take a little care of people who will need it in these days.

EFA - Noel - Children in hospital

A lot of children have to stay in the hospital during Christmas instead of being home with their family. You can make these days a little nicer for them by sending a message, let your imagination run free, your message will help to offer some comfort and hope for these children and will put a smile on their face.

How? It is very simple…

The “Fondation Réunica Prévoyance”  in association with “L’enfant@l’hopital” have set up a Christmas Message Tree. Take a taxi to this tree, simply click on the card to write the message you want to deliver to a child (in French or English – don’t forget to mention your country).

The “L’enfant@l’hopital” will  collect these message and will take care of delivering the supporting messages to children in various hospitals in France.

Don’t forget to have a look at the drawings of the children too. These cartoons are part of a competition. In January you can visit this place again to vote on your favorite cartoon.

Merry Christmas!

 As you travel around the grid, you cannot help but notice that Christmas time is on the way!  The tropical beaches are making way for winter wonderlands and palm trees are replaced by Christmas trees.  Time to forget the cocktails for a while and sit at the fireplace with a hot chocolate!

The shops and designers are preparing their season collections.  And so is Simone Stern.  As a present she gave me her new Christmas creations.  It is a big collection, in the traditional colors of red, green, white and black.  But also some surprising pastels and purple.  The red line through all are the fur and bows, they make the look rich and can be detached easily in such a way that a good wearable outfit is still there.  The collection is sweet and naughty at the same time and reminded me of Christmas pin-ups from the 50’s, naughty with a wink, but always sexy. Of course this collection has all that Simone! normally brings, high quality, detailed textures and all items in all layers.  And a nice plus, the outfits are very reasonable priced (200LD).

Let it snow,  let it snow,  let it snow!
