What is Christmas time without some hot chocolate?  It is a rhetorical question :).


Although this is not really Christmas themed, I love the red London icons of the telephone booth and the double-decker bus.  I feel that the somber grey scene with the brightly coloured icons is indeed festive.




The above images are of my three favourite Christmas movies.

     And there they are; everything that spells Christmas to me.  Have a Merry Christmas and please do spread some joy this festive season.

Hey everyone :) ! This blog is for all those who share my obsession with beauty, fashion, books, and movies. Yes, it seems like a potpourri at first, but one can never entertain a single interest alone; at least I cannot. I'm also a cat-lover or an ailurophile as they call it. This blog will essentially include my random musings and reviews on everything mentioned above and more (of course, I can't review cats, for I truly love them all). Please feel free to contribute and/or critique upon my posts. Lots of love out there to you :) .
