New Year's Eve: Celebrating 2014


I have maybe posted one or two photos of myself in the past two years. The main reason is that I am never happy with my looks (too fat, too this, too that) but one of my New Year's resolutions is to come out of the shadows and show myself from time to time. 

This photo was taken on New Year's Eve at Chiggeri, where I was having a New Year's Eve dinner with friends. 


The entire night is a bit of a blur and you can already see this on the blurry photos. I have tried to get the best out of them but yeah... Anyway, the food was really good though!


The creamy salmon mousse amuse-bouche was followed by five courses and five different wines. The first starter was a piece of cheese (Savarin de brochet) with crayfish juice and spinach. 


I don't eat foie gras and got a prawn instead. 


The main course was beef Wellington but again I asked for a non-meat dish and they served me fish with beans. 


The meal came to an end with a cheese plate...


... and chocolate lemon dessert. 


We went to Steiler for a couple of more drinks. At some point I ended up chatting with this young man. And of course (this is Luxembourg, everybody knows everybody!) I found out that we had friends in common. 

Another New Year resolution is to get rid of this double chin of mine and straighten these crooked teeth!


The final photo. One good decision I had made, was to wear simple, cheap clothes. When someone spilled beer over me, it wasn't too bad. When my heels got caught between street tiles - this embarrassing situation when you want to walk but your shoe remains stuck to the ground - I could just laugh it off. 

I got home at 4 am. It was a good night out, very merry, a bit of a headache the next day but all good.

  11. I think that everybody don't like something about them but that's not a reason for keeping yourself in a shadow. I thought that you don't post photos of yourself because you're keeping it "private"! Anyway, please share more photos of you, as you can see we approve and like them! :D

    As for the celebration - looks that you had a funny New Year's Eve!

  15. Same here, I rarely post photos of myself. I won't encourage you to do more as you're obviously comfortable with the infrequent posts. But I just wanted to say, you're very pretty, with very expressive eyes, and don't take this as patronising, but you're a doll :)
