When shopping last Saturday we of course took our time in the magazine shop. I had seen these photos of model Karlie Kloss online but when I viewed the December issue of Vogue Germany I liked them even better; the colours and flowers fascinated me. So did the cute dog. (I guess more people are talking about her nude photo shoot for Italian Vogue.) In the shop I was looking for the new December issue of Vogue Paris because I wanted to view the David Bowie-like cover of Kate Moss, which I find so cool. Have you seen it?
I don't know about you, but these days I find that good editorials are hard to come by. I actually find it amazing how it's possible to turn beautiful clothing and makeup into something utterly dull, boring and uninspiring. Sometimes it feels like I'm looking at the same dress again and again. I say this with the deepest respect for designer Stella McCartney, but if I see one more editorial with one of her black polka-dot sheer knit dresses I'll start pulling out my hair!
To continue with this subject, can someone please tell me why the December issue of Marie Claire UK has the exact same Sarah Jessica Parker cover photo as the US September issue?!! I really want to know. I even read somewhere that the same photo was used for the Australian December issue as well. What kind of weird marketing tactic is that?
Okay, I'll stop talking about magazines.
Our home is already looking very Christmassy because yesterday the children decorated our tree. Some may find it a bit too early but tomorrow the Belgian Santa Claus will leave presents for them by the fireplace and we wanted the tree decorated before his arrival.
I'm off with hubby to do some Christmas shopping. I'll be reading your blogs when we come back home. Have a wonderful day!

PS. Remember when I told you about the delicious biscotti with the dried cranberries? I'm happy to let you know that CafeSigrun has posted the recipe on her website. I borrowed the photo from her.
