Holly Jolly Holiday Movie List #StyledByMarina

Hey, my awesome readers, I don't know about you but I am a sucker for a good holiday movie. Well, to be fair, I'm a film fanatic in general. Since I haven't really done any Christmas themed blog post, I figured I'd pop on here and make a list of my all-time favorite holiday/Christmas movies and share it with you guys. With Christmas and New Year approaching, what better ways to spend your weekends and day off watching some good old festive films with a hot cup of cinnamon tea in your hand? Without further ado, here are 15 of my all-time favorite holiday movies you should watch / re-watch this holiday season:

1. The Holiday (2006)
2. New Year's Eve (2011)
3. Miracle on 34th Street (1994)
4. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
5. The Polar Express (2004)
6. Four Christmases (2008)
7. Home Alone (1990)
8. A Christmas Carol (2009)
9. Harry Potter Series ( It's a must!)
10. Love, Actually (2003)
11. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
12. It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
13. Serendipity (2001)
14. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
15. Jack Frost (1998)

These are just MY personal favorites, feel free to fill me in on some of the other classic holiday films I failed to mention, I will definitely check them out this Christmas :)

While we are on the topic of Christmas and holiday spirits, I recently went to a get-together lunch with my entire family at a nice little Italian restaurant, I thought I'd do a little outfit share as well. Here we go!

Blue Velvet Shirt - Vii&Co 

Black Pencil Skirt - Meierq 

Combat Boots - Forever 21 
Black Velvet Waist Bag - Vii&Co 
Deerstalker - Portobello Road Market

Continuing with the velvet trend, I wear a super soft and warm blue velvet top and simply paired it with my high-waisted black velvet pencil skirt, you can tell by now that I'm obsessed with velvet clothing. To accessorize, I recently purchased this really retro looking black velvet waist bag, I just tied it around my waist to add a little more detail to my outfit. As for hats, I bought this super cool deerstalker hat from my trip to London back in June, I never got the chance to wear it til now, the weather is finally getting colder here in my city and I just had to wear it out when I have the chance. The deerstalker is without a doubt my favorite part of my look. It just reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and adds such an interesting and unique touch to my whole look.

As much as I adore different kinds of hats, I feel like during summertime it's always too hot to wear them. I do have quite a collections of hats, so when winter comes, I try my best to include them in my everyday outfits.

That's about it, guys. Let's get talking and let in know in the comments below if you have watched some of the movies I mentioned above on my holiday movie list, feel free to share your thoughts and tell me which movies are your favorites!

Styled By Marina - Notting Hill, London #OOTD

Alright, I have been M.I.A for the past two weeks or so. The reason for that was because I was lucky enough to travel to the United Kingdom. If you do keep up with me on Instagram or Tumblr then you probably already knew considering how regular I post my travel pictures, lol. I was beyond excited about it although the whole trip was sort of a very last minute decision. Before you ask, yes, I am going to be writing a lot of blog posts on the different cities and places I went to, so please look forward to that.

Boracay Travel #MarinaTravels

Escaping to an exotic and tropical island in South East Asia for a get-away vacation was something I had always wanted to do. I was fortunate enough to jet off to the beautiful and exciting island - Boracay for a few days. The experiences along with plenty of lovely travel memories, as well as one of the most hospitable countries which is The Philippines will forever have a special place in my heart.

Gamcheon Culture Village 부산 감천문화마을, South Korea #MarinaTravels

Surprise! I'm in the last place all my family and friends would expect me to go, Busan, South Korea. You know sometimes you just feel like you need a relaxing and hassle-free get-away from all your daily routines and work life. That's exactly what I did. As I usually travel quite far, I'm talking about 19 or even 20-hour flight far. But this time, I ain't got the time and money, lol. Since South Korea is merely a 2.5-hour flight away from me, I took the chance and went to Busan with my friend.

Gamcheon Culture Village is a bright, eccentric place famous for its countless amount of colorful houses sitting on a foothill of a coastal mountain. Dubbed the Machu Picchu of Busan, Lego Village, and Korea's Santorini, just to name a few. It is fair to say that Gamcheon Culture Village is without a doubt one of the most popular tourist sights, I had to wake up early for this one. Fear not, if you arrive at the village around 9am or generally in the morning, which I did, yo…

Velvet Baddie #StyledByMarina

Hey guys! Merry December! Today I thought I'd pop on here and do a quick little outfit post. If you are like me that loves scrolling through Instagram to get new outfit ideas and style inspiration. You will most certainly understand what I am about to say next.I have been really inspired by a lot of Los Angeles based Instagram girls. Now before you say anything, yes, looking at their daily outfit post is kind of my guilty pleasure. Everything aside, you simply can't deny the fact that California girls just oozes self-confidence that is difficult to imitate.

Daegu, South Korea 대구 #MarinaTravels

After 2 and a half hour flight, I landed at Gimhae International Airport in Busan Korea. Before I even knew it, I found myself in the city center of  Seomyeon being bombarded by blinding Korean shop signs, uproarious Kpop music, and its vibrant, exciting nightlife. However today I want to talk about something quite different. Something other than just the hip and modern Korean city life. I had the amazing opportunity to visit Daegu, a city in North Gyeongsang Province. It is while I was there I had the fortune of spending an afternoon in Apsan Park (대구앞산공원), one of the most breathtaking and beautiful wilderness park I've visited in my life.

The fastest and most convenient way to get to the City of Daegu from Busan is by taking the Korea Train Express (KTX). You could either book your tickets online or buy them at the counter. If the ticket line gets too long and you're in a rush, they also have automatic ticket machines where you can purchase your tickets using a credit card.…
