field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The idea of spending the Holidays at home (for the first time since forever!) has made me super excited to go crazy with all things X-mas. :) And what's more festive than a huge gorgeous nostalgic&nbsp;over-the-top X-mas tree?? I honestly didn't anticipate feeling so giddy about it, but I had the most fun picking out our ornaments from <a href="http://www.goodwill.be/site/en/" target="_blank">Goodwill</a>&nbsp;(they have an&nbsp;amazing handmade selection, including fairies, ballerinas, and candy-inspired options!)&nbsp;and dressing up our tree in the sparkliest way possible.&nbsp;Now all that's left to do is fill up the space underneath with prezzies (easy) and keep Bobke from destroying the entire thing (not easy). And since X-mas is all about sharing, here are my 5 ultimate tips for getting a perfect X-mas tree:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>1 / FLUFF IT</strong></p> <p>The first step is putting in your X-mas lights (I used to do this towards the end, which was always so stressful! :))&nbsp;and 'fluffing' your tree by adding branch-and-leaf-shaped pieces that make your tree look fuller and more voluminous. This allows you to hang your actual ornaments more near the front of the tree, while avoiding empty-looking spaces.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>2 / PICK YOUR COLOUR SCHEME</strong></p> <p>If you want a tree that's classic and nostalgic&nbsp;but still stylish, picking out (and sticking to!) a colour scheme is crucial. I'm not gonna lie: I need my tree to be festive and glittery, so I went with golden, silver, and white tones. You can then add some pops of colour and a personal touch with ornaments of your choice (such as&nbsp;miniature lipsticks, because, I mean!).</p> <p><strong>3 / HANG YOUR ORNAMENTS</strong></p> <p>While you obviously want all your ornaments to be pretty, there's always some that are SMACK BANG gorgeous, and some that are just regularly gorgeous. You want to hang those last ones a bit more in the back, towards the trunk, again to make the tree look fuller, and to&nbsp;create some reflection with your X-mas lights. If you have several ornaments of the same kind, try to hang them close to each other (instead of apart), preferably&nbsp;in pairs of three.</p> <p><strong>4 / COVER UP THE BOTTOM</strong></p> <p>It can be a bit of a downer to have a gorgeous tree with a bare bottom part, so I do like the idea of creating a 'tree skirt' that covers up anything that's going on below -&nbsp;in my case, I totally added stuff to make the tree appear taller and create more space for presents (don't judge).</p> <p><strong>5 / ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH</strong></p> <p>If you're going for the perfect traditional tree you have to pay attention to the top!&nbsp;I initially wanted to put a bow on it, but then changed my mind to mixing up different X-mas balls and hanging them really closely together in the top. I think it's kind of a more 'modern' interpretation, and I really like how it turned out. :)&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>What do you guys think? Do you have any other tips for me? :) I can't wait to spend X-mas eve with all my loved ones sitting around this beautiful&nbsp;tree, with hot chocolate and way too many sweets!</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-likes field--type-integer field--label-hidden field__item">8</div> <section class="entry-comments"> <h2 class="title visually-hidden">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=1755&amp;2=field_comments&amp;3=blog_comment" token="be90f451"></drupal-render-placeholder> <h2 class="title visually-hidden">Comments</h2> <div class="comments-list"> <a id="comment-23541"></a> <article data-comment-user-id="0" class="comment js-comment by-anonymous"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1481366501"></mark> <footer class="comment-meta"> <span class="comment-author"><span>francesca </span></span> on <a href="/comment/23541#comment-23541" hreflang="en">December 10, 2016</a> </footer> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>so classy and chic!</p> <p>xx<br /> <a href="http://www.cherry-mag.com/outfits/the-chic-edit-oversized-camel-coat/">www.cherry-mag.com/outfits/the-chic-edit-oversized-camel-coat/</a></p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=23541&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="3c924324"></drupal-render-placeholder> </article> <a id="comment-23542"></a> <article data-comment-user-id="0" class="comment js-comment by-anonymous"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1481384656"></mark> <footer class="comment-meta"> <span class="comment-author"><span>Jozefien</span></span> on <a href="/comment/23542#comment-23542" hreflang="en">December 10, 2016</a> </footer> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Bobke is zo schattig met die kerstbal!<br /> groetjes Jozefien ♥</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=23542&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="03593db1"></drupal-render-placeholder> </article> <a id="comment-23543"></a> <article data-comment-user-id="0" class="comment js-comment by-anonymous"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1481394743"></mark> <footer class="comment-meta"> <span class="comment-author"><span>Irene B</span></span> on <a href="/comment/23543#comment-23543" hreflang="en">December 10, 2016</a> </footer> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Love ur sweater!</p> <p><a href="http://www.ontomywardrobe.com/">http://www.ontomywardrobe.com/</a></p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=23543&amp;1=default&amp;2=en&amp;3=" token="a0cf15fd"></drupal-render-placeholder> </article> </div> </section> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://www.fashionata.com/how-to-get-the-perfect-x-mas-tree" data-a2a-title="HOW TO GET THE PERFECT X-MAS TREE"><a class="a2a_button_facebook fsn-icon-facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_pinterest fsn-icon-pinterest"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter fsn-icon-twitter"></a></span> Sat, 10 Dec 2016 08:00:00 +0000 Sofie Valkiers 1755 at http://www.fashionata.com http://www.fashionata.com/how-to-get-the-perfect-x-mas-tree#comments TWINKLE TWINKLE http://www.fashionata.com/twinkle-twinkle <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">TWINKLE TWINKLE</span> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/series/its-all-good" hreflang="en">It&#039;s All Good</a></div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>Sofie Valkiers</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 12/09/2016 -

I remember being super upset because - contrary to the girls at my school - I wasn't allowed to pierce my ears or wear make-up other than see-through lip gloss, but now that I have a little girl myself I actually do the exact same thing. Other than that, she showed me the importance of using high-quality products that are good for you. When I was about 15, she took me to the department store <a href="https://www.debijenkorf.nl" target="_blank">De Bijenkorf </a>to pick out my first powder blush and day cream. It was from <a href="http://int.clarins.com/en/face-moisturizers/220/" target="_blank">Clarins</a>, a great brand that works with lots of natural ingredients. This focus was also reflected in our eating habits, as my mother definitely taught us that sugar wasn't healthy: my after-school snack usually consisted of green tea and a biscuit - that was it!</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>ON HER BIGGEST TEENAGE BEAUTY FAIL</strong></p> <p>I've always had very long thick blonde hair. At some point, my cool and funky hair dresser advised me to cut it into a bob and shave a part in the back, that would be shown whenever I made a pony tail. I totally went through with it, but the shaved part was a nightmare of course! Not cool at all. :) After that, I've never cut my hair again, and I very much doubt that I ever will again. I'm super traumatised! </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>ON PREMIUM SKINCARE AND EXTRA WHITE TEETH</strong></p> <p>My mother is a natural redhead, and she really doesn't need a lot of make-up. She only uses mascara, a little concealer and blush, does yoga every week, and she's got a very positive mindset. I firmly believe that all of these things are visible on the outside, so I try to do the same. We also share an obsession of the <a href="http://www.cremedelamer.com/products/5834/moisturizers" target="_blank">La Mer skincare</a>, it's amazing for our skin! We've both been using it for years and can't live without it. My mother also taught me to rinse my mouth with coconut oil to whiten my teeth en cleanse my body. And she always put little lavender bags under my pillow (she actually still does this!), to ensure a good sleeping pattern: super important to look your best, of course. :)</p> <p> </p> <p><picture><!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_large/public/editor-images/FAMILY%20SECRETS%20ANNEMIEKE.002.jpeg?itok=MODrWyuX 1x" media="(min-width: 1921px)" type="image/jpeg"></source><source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/FAMILY%20SECRETS%20ANNEMIEKE.002.jpeg?itok=jGF00Xd5 1x, /sites/default/files/styles/blog_image_2x/public/editor-images/FAMILY%20SECRETS%20ANNEMIEKE.002.jpeg?itok=d-HnJk_4 2x" type="image/jpeg"></source><!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--><img data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="698d785e-0f42-4e21-a4f4-0232599c12bf" data-responsive-image-style="blog_image" srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/blog_image/public/editor-images/FAMILY%20SECRETS%20ANNEMIEKE.002.jpeg?itok=jGF00Xd5" alt="" /></picture></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>ON SEASONAL SIGNATURE SCENTS</strong></p> <p>I love sensual and strong fragrances, such as the new <a href="http://eu.louisvuitton.com/eng-e1/products/matiere-noire-014421" target="_blank">Matière Noire perfume</a> by Louis Vuitton.

I use <a href="http://www.jilsander.com/en/fragrance/woman-fragrances" target="_blank">Jil Sander Sun</a> as a base and mix it with some of my other faves, such as <a href="http://www.diptyqueparis.eu/eau-des-sens.html" target="_blank">Diptyque Eau des Sens</a>.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>ON AVOIDING SUNLIGHT, AND CREATING YOUR OWN STYLE</strong></p> <p>I'm religious about not exposing my face to direct sunlight, because it's so bad for your skin! I always wear a big sun hat and/or apply SPF 50+ when I go to the beach. :) As for fashion, I try to stay true to my own style, no matter the trends. Both my mother and I are a big fan of all-natural high-quality fabrics such as cashmere. We have this tradition of hunting for the most beautiful cashmere sweaters whenever we visit my brother in London. And we're such nerds about it, because we have special bags to put them in, so that they are very well preserved. During Winter, I basically live in cashmere sweaters and cardigans, paired with denim or black pants, and a long coat.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>ON HER FAVOURITE WINTER-Y FAMILY RECIPE</strong></p> <p>As soon as Winter is coming we all get a huge craving for my grandmother's 'stoofvlees', a hearty and meat-y dish with red wine and laurel, that is served with red cabbage and potatoes. My mother inherited the recipe, and now I make it for my husband and little girl too. Everybody loves it, and we really associate it with family time.</p> <p> </p> <p>Thanks so much, <a href="http://www.athenapr.nl" target="_blank">Annemieke</a>!

You guys already know about my obsession with accessories&nbsp;that can give any outfit a bit of an edge and take it to the next level. Well,&nbsp;I created these keychains with exactly that in mind: they're handmade of the softest leather, for a beautiful&nbsp;durable piece that celebrates a healthy and balanced lifestyle.&nbsp;</p> <p>Just as with the SANUI jewelry, we decided to focus on an ombre colouring scheme (I'm obsessed with it!).We created 4 versions&nbsp;to go with each and every possible mood and look: our <a href="http://www.sanui-antwerp.com/products/ombre-leather-keychain-silver-fox?variant=27777523144" target="_blank">Silver Fox</a> (super classy) and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.sanui-antwerp.com/products/keychains-1?variant=27777140296" target="_blank">Golden Hour</a> (ultimately chique) keychains represent timeless sophistication, while our <a href="http://www.sanui-antwerp.com/products/ombre-leather-keychain-pink-powder?variant=27777904968" target="_blank">Pink Powder</a> (cheerful &amp; girly) and <a href="http://www.sanui-antwerp.com/products/ombre-leather-keychain-purple-fix?variant=27777844232" target="_blank">Purple Fix</a> (poppy and tomboy) keychains are perfect for those occasions when you just feel so damn happy. :) To make them extra versatile, we added 2 different clasps, so you can add them to just about everything in your closet that could you a little somethin' somethin'. Can't wait to show you my fave ways to style these gems soon!

my Fall faves that I reach for regularly, and that make me feel cosy and put-together at the same time: a wool turtleneck (no. 1 Fall essential!), leather dress, ankle booties, and oversized coat definitely do the trick for me. To keep it from getting boring I like to add colourful accessories (such as a wrist scarf) and my newest obsession: turtleneck hair!! I did <a href="http://www.fashionata.com/my-everyday-hair-style" target="_blank">my usual hair styling routine</a>, using my beloved pink&nbsp;<a href="http://shop.dyson.be/nl-BE/haarverzorging?_ga=1.130216204.221387179.1480428822" target="_blank">Dyson Supersonic hair dryer</a> to add some extra volume (I love the extra tools that come with it :)) and to&nbsp;make sure my hair doesn't get frizzy&nbsp;or dry (I'm especially careful about that when the days get colder!). Then I just tucked it into my high-neck top <em>et voilà</em>! Super easy and totally French girl, don't you think? :) O, and also: isn't the light&nbsp;<em>amazing</em>&nbsp;right now? I'm so in love with this golden glow! Wishing you a bright day!</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-likes field--type-integer field--label-hidden field__item">3</div> <section class="entry-comments"> <h2 class="title visually-hidden">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=1720&amp;2=field_comments&amp;3=blog_comment" token="9e0597e6"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://www.fashionata.com/my-fall-uniform" data-a2a-title="MY FALL UNIFORM"><a class="a2a_button_facebook fsn-icon-facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_pinterest fsn-icon-pinterest"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter fsn-icon-twitter"></a></span> Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:44:20 +0000 Sofie Valkiers 1720 at http://www.fashionata.com
