Farewell 2013 - the Best Year of my Life!!

Oh 2013 you are gone. You have been sooo good to My Husband Piro & I. You brought us Vivian and she is the Best Gift, the Sweetest Little Girl, the Most Beautiful Baby, the Loveliest Angel. You truly were the Best Year of My Life 2013!! Thank you 2013 for bringing her into our lives. She has filled our home and made our hearts more content and our souls full of joy. She has enriched us as people while making us her parents. Every smile she has gifted us has been like a little diamond. You proved to be Lucky 13. I know the best is yet to come as we see our gorgeous baby girl make her first steps in life (literally), grow into a toddler, start talking and understanding the world around her, call us Mommy & Daddy and continue to fill us with Unconditional Love, Unspoken Joy and Undeniable Happiness. We welcome 2014 with open arms starting with January when sweet Vivian turns the big O-N-E. Farewell 2013. The Furxhi and Dhima Families will never forget you. You have been so gracio…

Bows, Reds and Fair Isle for Vivian and I on Christmas Eve.

Hello. It's almost New Year. Happy New Year's Eve! I have a Special New Year's Eve Outfit coming to the blog tomorrow, just a few hours before midnight strikes in Albania. So stay tuned for that. =) But for today I am showing you my Casual yet Festive Christmas Eve Outfit from this year.

Christmas Eve is not a big deal in Albania. I wish it was. Truth is, the ones that are Christian do celebrate it and follow traditions, but work-places are open regular hours so people end up being at work until late. I didn't even wrap all of Vivian's Presents until late on Christmas Eve (after she fell asleep), but then she found them under the tree in the morning. I wore this New Sweater with embellished Silver+Gold Big Bow on the front and 3 smaller Bows on the back. I wanted a Bow Sweater badly and I finally found one I liked and for a good price (20 bucks) I purchased it. I do have Red Pants & Jeans but I hadn't worn these Corduroy Pants since I styled them as Mom'…

Holiday Looks: Something Plaid.

We are just finishing the last weekend of December and of the year 2013. There are only two more days till we ring in 2014. In honor of the Holidays and continuing with the Holiday Looks I have been featuring this month on Tuesdays, I promise that this week's Outfits will feature a little Glam, a little Holiday Attire and a little Sparkle if you will. Today I am showing you Something Plaid. I have also shown you Holiday Sweaters 1 and 2,a Bustier and a Little Black Dress. If you notice from these Holiday Looks, I have mostly worn Red Shoes. Red screams HOLIDAYS to me what can I say. Today's Look features my New Red Plaid/Tartan Blouse from Zara which I also paired from a Skirt by Zara. They are both new pieces which I love. I have been looking for a Dressy Red Tartan Blouse to wear this Holiday Season & more and when the right one came along (for the right price) I budged. The Skirt is a Stunner too, in its Vibrant Pumpkin Orange and it has pockets. I added my newest Bubble…

Two-fer Friday: Soft Pink Sweater with Silk Panel.

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a Great Christmas first of all. I have been meaning to post an Outfit Post yesterday but once again the day slipped away from me, before I knew it. Today, I am also posting late because I have been busy and I haven't been feeling all too well, either. Thank you to all of you who have stopped by this blog this week, during the Holidays. I hope you enjoyed the latest Vivian Post filled with beautiful portraits from her very first photo shoot. =)

Since today is December 27th and this month is coming to an end very soon and due to a lack of posting and an accumulation of previous Outfits not shown on the blog before, today you get 2 Outfits featuring my Rose Pink, Silk-blend Sweater with the Silk Palette on the upper back. These 2 Outfits were worn about a month apart, since the first one (with the Sweatshirt Jacket) is from November and the second one from this month. As you will see with both Outfits, I styled the Sweater tying a Scarf the long way…

It is Vivian's First Christmas!!

I Hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas which was Bright with Open Hearts, Rich with Gifts, Satisfying with Delicious Food and surrounded by all your Loved Ones. It was Vivian's very First Christmas and in just 4 short weeks she will be the Big O-N-E. It is insane to think that a year has gone by since she has been part of our lives. Our Home and Our Hearts are richer, fuller and kinder because of her.

Just a few days before Christmas on December 22nd we had a little professional Holiday Shoot scheduled for Vivian, in honor of her first Holiday Season. We were supposed to have it a week sooner by another photographer who was very rude and canceled just 3 hours before the appointment. But everything happens for a reason. A friend of mine called one of her photographer friends who is really good. He squeezed us in last minute and even E-Mailed us these 10 Photos (I took a few with her too) less than 24 hours later. So, I am sharing these pictures with you because they are beautiful…
