For #MyLuckyHoliday, we’ve teamed up with some of our favorite influencers to talk all things merry and bright: what makes the holidays so special and their personal picks from our gift guide. Read on to hear more from jewelry designer, Stella Simona.
How are you spending the holidays this year?
This was a really hectic year for me. As I was barely home, I plan to spend my holidays at home with my loved ones relaxing on the couch in some cozy pjs.
What do you love most about this season?
I love being able to layer. Playing with different textures, lengths, and details is extremely exciting.
Do you have any personal holiday traditions?
Every year, my husband and I, and now our son, Noah, each pick out 1-2 new ornaments to add to the tree. We also have a big sleepover on the floor in front of the tree on the night before Christmas, with all the pups, kids, cousins, you name it!
Any tips for avoiding stress?
This time of year can easily become overwhelming in so many ways. Remind yourself that it’s meant to be enjoyed and to not let the small things get to you, and you’ll be okay. Also, do not holiday shop last minute!
Do you have a favorite dish that you look forward to preparing and or enjoying?
I love making my famous pot pie casserole and then eating it with everyone else.
Tell us about one of your fondest holiday memories?
A few years ago, everyone stayed up all night cooking the best food ever, but instead of waiting to eat it the next day, we feasted at, like, 2am. What made it really exciting is that we’d all tried a few brand new recipes on this day. I’m not sure if you guys can tell, but i’m a bit of a foodie.

Let’s talk music! What’s your go-to album of choice and why?
Mariah Carey, Charlie Brown Christmas, The Supremes. They’re all classics and take me back to the old days.
Describe your holiday décor style.
Chic Scandinavian Christmas meets a touch of classic Christmas.
Tell us something about 2018 that made you feel lucky?
I’m a mom to a beautiful 2-year-old boy named Noah. Being able to witness and experience his life’s journeys alongside him is so rewarding.
Any new year resolutions for 2019?
Vacation more, work out more, go out to eat more, and take on a new hobby (I’m thinking dancing).
