Christmas 2016

Week 27: The Start of 2017. The Return of Tartan.

Wow. What a year 2016 has been! I moved to New York, married my love, launched this blog and my online shop, travelled to gorgeous places, and so much more!

Those loyal readers who follow me on Instagram (I love you!) know that I have been on the craziest, most wonderful "tour" over the last few weeks. I spent a very cozy Christmas at home with Ben and his family in Utah, and then my love took me on our Scandinavian adventure

The trip has been splendid and surprising in many ways, however I feel I have been living on an airplane for way too long now!

All throughout December, Ben and I flew back and forth between New York and Park City, and after Christmas up until now we were hopping from Moscow to Stockholm ---> Kiruna ---> Copenhagen ---> Oslo ---> Stockholm ---> Amsterdam. Phew!  I promise I will share a proper travel diary with you as soon as I get back to New York... and after at least one day of proper sleep and some serious unpacking.

For now, catch out this sexy, casual look that I shot with Dennis. The Old New Year celebration falls on the 14th of January, so it is still totally appropriate to have a Christmas tree in some photographs. :)

The highlight (or I shall I say Highland? ;)) of the look is this plaid skirt from ZARA, matched with a sexy Zaful top and knee high Steve Madden boots. The tartan print is definitely becoming more and more popular, especially after the crazy success of the whole Outlander universe. At least to me, tartan is always a good reminder of Jamie Fraser ;) Who else loves tartan because of Outlander?!

Week 26: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. Winter Wonderland in Laduree.

Christmas Tree at Laduree Soho in New York City. Blogger Ulia Ali

Laduree in Soho, NYC has some of the coziest Christmas decorations in the city. I love going there wearing a warm sweater to drink Marie Antoinette tea and to read a book (I just started The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton).

Today's look is one of my favourite of the season, and I am so excited to share it with you. I am wearing a super warm, grey sweater from Shein that looks perfect with my arctic blue, fox fur vest bought in Baku, Azerbaijan in Снежная Королева. I also can't stop wearing white jeans as they make every outfit look so fresh. The cherry on top of my marshmallow babe look (that's what Ben calls it!) is my grey Louis Vuitton bag.

Week 26: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. Ulia's Gift Guide 2016

Christmas Gift Guide and Valentine's day gift ideas for her and him 2017. Blogger's shopping guide.

Christmas is a time full of love, joy and happiness. It is the time for listening Baby, It’s Cold Outside and Let it Snow on repeat, and watching It's a Wonderful Life for the 100th time while wrapped in a very warm blanket, cuddling with your loved one. Christmas is the time when miracles happen and prayers are answered.

And it is also the time to give and share. While I strongly suggest you to do something meaningful for the people around you, a little Christmas Gift Guide with my favourite gifts for everyone on your list will help make your holiday shopping easier. ;)

P.S. The guide will be updated daily!
