What I got for Christmas

Taking back to my Christmas wishes check Here what was on my list 🙂 and read here which I received. This is a really must-to-write post, eventhought it will be short.

  • We received some nice wines, which we actually love: Gere Rosé and a rare red one.

  • Finally not only my husband, but also me:)). There were tons of chocolates of course, calendar to our wall like every year. We really loved that beautiful tea selection from my brother, cos nothing better than enjoying tea together on our day off. And guidebook to our Honeymoon… stay turned for its upcoming stories!
  • From my parents I have got a pocket calendar with little prince- well they really know I love that book eversince and bathrobe with bear face and ears… so so soft and cute and really cool ( I think my husband’s hands in it- he really hates my old one). So much thanks.
  • From my grandparents ( really my grandma is the classiest woman I know) silk Wyf scarf, my fav Clarins Eclat Minute- she has known that I was out of it- and Greek&Georgeous Bha- I was told her that I wanna try, just a bit expensive- how cute she is, really remembering these things?
  • From my sister my biggest wish: Longchamp Le Pliage … no words to be described…

  • From my hubby, I am really greatful to him, as my beloved luggage was broken, despite the guarantee they were unable to repair it, even they offered to buy it off, half price of Samsonite was a way too expensive just right before Christmas and Honeymoon, so he is just awsome, previously he also bought me a kitchen mixer.

In summary, gifts are really cool, even to receive, even to give. I am really greatful to my family that we really care so only bought things that are needed to each other, but love and to be together is more important than gifts. Read my next post of our Christmas: outfit, menu and the Hungarian traditions.

Gifts (better to give)

These all the things which I bought for Christmas(sorry for the mess)

Sister: Book(hungarian), cute calendar, Lipstick and home decor box from Cinq Filles

BFF: cinq filles box + candies

I always try to buy gifts, that my family and friends will like, literally love to see the joy of people upon receiving really wanted gifts.

Continue to my hubby: guys need IT and tech things, so his extra internal storage was his wish, but did bought Ted Baker wallett- Asos haul here-, swimsuit for our upcoming honeymoon and his favourite handcream ( the only he can stand) from L’occatine Classic shea butter one.

Brother: Yrka T-shirt- he really likes these extra-not-fast-fashion ones and some IKEA plates which he asked for.

We did a family calendar for my grannies and parents-timelapse video below and some Grey towels for our parents, which just perfectly matches to our house’s bathrooms.

Did bought some little things to my siblings’ partners: St. Andrea: Napbor ( really good quality white wine cuvée from Eger region) and Nebouxii socks as he loves colorful and funny socks. For me: local made and Nebouxii is the only animal “wearing blue socks” which is just adorable.

For my brother gf: little cat book, sented candle and cute, warm socks.

Of course we did some ginger bread in this nice folie.

Stay turned for my gifts…

Shopping Guide (Budapest Alternative)

As being a Concierge, I often face with the question where I can do shopping in Budapest instead of Shopping Malls or looking for local products.

Yesterday (21rst)-I had a shopping day, unfortunatelly I do not have a vlog camera (I should- so that can add to my wishlist). Below I draw my route and of course there will be a lot more shops in the city than mentioning.

I want all till Opera Metro Station and get into the side street from Andrássy Avenue to :

CINQ FILLES – Paulay Ede str. 44.

The most beautiful boxes I have ever seen, really high quality and it is also ideal for home decor. They do sell boxes, premium bonbons, sweets, wines and candles. I was come to buy their own products only.

look the shopwindow:

PROJEKT SHOWROOM- Paulay Ede str. 29.

It is a temporary- pop up store- which now focus on Christmas, so they do have little books, stationeries, cheramic, gastro gifts, toys and bags ect. They have Greek and Gorgeous, KAP makeup or The Ordinary the things which I was coming for.

THE GARNER STUDIO- Paulay Ede str. 18.

It is a clothes store, with local designer brand like Tomcsanyi, YKRA or limited edition of Tisza or international Brand like Toms. It has a retro feeling from the ’80s and ’90s Eastern Europe, which is pretty cool, this shopping bag reminds me my grandfather’s ones used at the Market in the early ’90s.

LAURA VIRÁG- Király str.28.

Shabby chic flower shop with the most beautiful and fresh flowers in town. Really love their creativity, joy and athmosphere of the shop.

WONDERLAB- Vere Pálné str 3.

Also a concept store with 30 local designers for jewely, clothes, bags, dog equipment, they are my old time favourite. Really chatty place and prices are not so high for quality.

BORTÁRSASÁG- multiple locations

If you are a wine lover and you prefer quality, that’s your place. If you are a foreign visiting the city and looking for some good wines that is the place and they do have knowledge what they sell! I should turn back soon.

Stay turned for my gifts haul…

Asos haul

Believe it or not till this summer I have never purchased online goods ( Steve Madden wedding shoe was my very first one in July). I am the person who love to touch the clothes, bags, shoes ect. upon buying the feel the quality of materials.

So Black Friday and the fact that I have unable to find a good quality leather purse with a coin pocket to my beloved Hubby made me to order from Asos ( considered them reliable).

DHL was quick till the boarder, but afterwards local post was late compare to offered delivery time, but finally got it.
Here is my order in summary:

The 6 items arrived in a huge box with some airbags. All of them packed into a seperate plastic bags.

Most positives:
Ted Baker purse: really high quality, excellent (look How gorgeous) packaging and beautiful chocolate color✅

Sunglasses: I have just bought it, because I wanted to have a cheaper than my Ralph Lauren one to the beach for our upcoming honeynoon. It is over my expectation- made of metal, not just plastic, really love the design.💕

Swim shorts: it is also just to have a second for him to our honeymoon. He considered it "not bad" , due to Calzedonia is better ( an twice more)✅

Full pleated midi skirt: I was afraid of its lenght (being tall), but it is perfect. The color is forest green so I thought it will be darker by the photos, but it is still nice and perfect with a black top for Christmas dinner. I just can not stand the smell of it, like a Chinese clothes store, so just quickly take it to the Washing machine…✅

Tropical swimsuit: darker than on the site, quality is good, I will be only afraid of the breast part😎

Black swimsuit: I love Black so I tend to order one. For the first impression the high cut is strange and afraid of the belt rides it up and then it will not look good. Might send it back, but keep trying it at home.

I am too white and off bikini shape to take a try it on shoot, sorry.

All my orders comes in Perfect true to size: EUR 36/UK 8.

Will I order in the future? Yes, but not all the time.

My charity box

So finally, finished our charity box to a girl age 12-15. I have decided to give it to a young teenager girl, as most of the people bring the shoe boxes for the little ones and forget about the teenagers, while they really have wishes and so on ( Based on my volunteer day with the baptist).

So what you ought to do, I do believe you have it in other countries as well:
– look arround at home: what unnecessary for you, might be a wish to someone else
– find out the gender and age group
– take a shoe box and fabricate its look
– go shopping with your bugdet, shops like: Housewear stores, drogeries, stationeries, bookstores might have a good offer

My bugdet was ca 16-20 EUR, gifts are the following:
– never used H&M skirt – s size
– bijou which I have never used
– photoframe
– book
– nail polish, mascara, lip balm, soap
– chocolates

All tiny, little things, but the best of Christmas is to give for someone else.
Next to the box, we brought some more soaps, tea bags and blankets to the charity.

Have a lovely day and make this Christmas never-to-be-forgetten for somebody.

My Christmas wishlist

These are my most wanted gifts for this Christmas, but any way it is very easy to make me happy with a good book, make up or parfume too.
Hereby my screenshoots:
1- Longchamp Le Pliage Tote L in Navy

I have a strange relationship with this bag, was so close to buy it several time (5-6) in the past 3 – 4 years, but never did, because for me it was always "Mom's bag from the '90s". Now I know why she loves her Black one over the last 20 years: it is just the Perfect tote: big enough, zip and small to carry.

2- Zoeva Café Palette

So nice colors and of course I am a coffee lover…

3- Chanel Gabrielle

Generally I am not a Chanel Parfume fan, but finally they came out with this light, flowery and the packaging is so adorable.

4- silk scarf- Still waiting to find the ideal timeless one, might be at COS, Massimo Dutti or local designer Vyf or Etsy….

5- gorgeous or cute calendar 2018- love to write

Now it is time to go!

Stay turned my Christmas serie continue soon.

Our wedding decoration

Hi lovelies,

Here are some tips and trix for you, if you are on a budget for your big day decoration. This is the part of the planning where you can spend or save the most!

Firtsly, my 5 tips to save money on wedding decoration:

  1. DIY-might be it takes longer time, but worst the effort.
  2. Make a usage of the existing decor of the place.
  3. Inspire on Pinterest, but do not owerdone in reality.
  4. Use multitasking product like thank you cards as a nametag.
  5. Buy the flowers by yourself and but them in vase

Our decoration was not perfect but beloved by us and our guests. We made mistakes like forgetting the popcorns for the popcorn bar at home, so just simply skipped it or lost the maching seatting chart…

esküvő_292

So we used the room itself, walls:

  • heart shape halfy covered by flowers
  • David Austin crepp roses with our names
  • welcome desk and behind the main desk, but see the photos

Tables:

Rounded for the guests with white table clothes, candle and mirror from the hotel. IKEA hack vase and confetties on the mirrors. Thank you cards was also their name cards, gifts: palinka-men and stonecrop-ladies. On the main table we have smaller vases with flowers and three extra for bridal bouquet and mom’s bouquests- and a bride- groom sign.

Terrace:

Even it was raining, we were luck enough to receive the welcome champagne and snack outside and even it was possible to take some photos. There we hosted our photo corner:
