I think I’m officially a walking Dough Ball

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s a glorious time of year. People are in a good mood, the streets turn in to magical wonderlands and there is plenty of festive food to feast on.


And plenty can easily be replaced by oodles of, heaps of, or a cornucopia of food!

Enter: the feeling of being a “dough ball”


I’m generally someone who thrives on eating loads and loads of fruits and vegetables. In keeping with the “big words” used above, you could say I eat a plethora of them. Practicing control with healthy foods like those was never necessary and thus, I have no self-control when it comes to anything I like…


I just eat, drink and be merry… and let me tell you it really gets to you when you start on the 21st..


But complaints are better the morning after 😉 Let’s relish the deliciousness of this holiday and recap how I celebrated this year – my first Christmas officially not a teenager!

On the 24th my mom and I celebrated with family friends. We’ve spent the last three Christmases there and it’s starting to become a real tradition.


I went for a glamour/chic look of a pale pink lacy dress, leopard print shoes, pink blazer…


..and lots and lots of mascara!

IMG_1037We ate a wide variety of rice, salad, lentils, sweet potato and much much more! I also made peanut butter truffles and a raspberry frozen treat, but was incapable of remembering to take pictures… they were great though!



I also finally enjoyed some pink champagne! 🙂

On the 25th we celebrated with my dad.

IMG_1051Leopard print shoes were a theme this Christmas… once open-toed and once just plateaued.

IMG_1042Check out his red slippers! 😀

IMG_1054..mascara was also a theme.. and so was loads and loads of food 😉


On the 26th we went to visit my family in Vienna


We enjoyed a lot of Viennese treats..

IMG_1065Like this Kaiserschmarn 🙂


We also enjoyed a lot from afar 🙂



Vienna is a really beautiful city. I hope to visit it again soon! It reminds me a lot of Paris, with its majestic charm and royal flair.. I seem to have a thing for the romantic, magical ambiance 🙂




IMG_1064Now that I’m back in Zurich, I need to go through a major detox to start feeling hunger again though, and feel less like a dough ball 😉

But of course, I had to have one more Swiss chocolate while enjoying a spectacular view during the flight back.


IMG_1075Oh well, tomorrow is another day 😉

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
