A custom shaped, Zamora Surf board.

It came in a gift wrapped package...

dress: topshop; shoes: Sperry; bag: Chloe

my cousins from California were visiting for the holidays and I wanted to take them out in the city while they were here. And Nina wanted to do some last minute Christmas shopping and her cousins Kelly & Charlie tagged along. Thus the day dubbed Cousins Day Out. And of course we had our third musketeer Kim join us!

tuck my head into my chest,
and lean forward.

snapshots: a golden brown christmas

it is not unknown among my friends and family that i absolutely LOVE the holiday season. :) I love buying presents then wrapping them, attending parties (and dressing up for them!), and the food! preparing and eating all the food!!

the first of all of these was a our surfers Christmas party! {thanks Mika for letting us parteh in your house! and also inventing the title of this post ;)} And since we're always seeing each other half naked and wet, we decided to dress up a bit for our party ;)

the very nicely decorated tree of the Santoses :)
