IT’s nearly here. The big day! The day every child in the land is excitedly waiting for. The day that comes with all the expectations, all the hopes and all the stress. The day that many people are longing for. The day that many other people will be dreading. Christmas Day. For most of us there will be presents, a turkey dinner, booze and plenty of it. (If we’re lucky.) However
I’M sat here surrounded by gift wrap and festive mess… So it seems only right that I share with you another festive style post today! A little more low key than my previous post, but still suitably Christmassy, today’s post was inspired by comfort. Yes folks, comfort. Because whilst I do love a heavy dose of glamour in my wardrobe, when it comes to stuffing my face with Christmas food
IT’S Christmas, it’s party time, so there’s only one thing for it. It’s time to roll out the bling and make a statement. As a real ‘magpie’ of a gal, there’s nothing I love more in the style world, than some sparkle or glitz. Particularly at this time of year when it’s sooo dark and sooo grey.

Since being a wee nipper, nothing makes me feel more festive than battling with some branches, dangling some lights and getting tangled in some tinsel. Sure
STARTED your Christmas shopping yet?! Nope? Me neither! But fret not my beauties! We’ve still got a good few weeks to go and, kind soul that I am (*winks*), I’ve decided to do my bit for the festive season and share some gift ideas with you all, which will hopefully make life a little easier or perhaps get you out of a gifting pickle. (It happens to all of us). Here
CHRISTMAS is coming…the goose is getting fat. (Or something like that). But are you ready? And more importantly, is your home ready for the festive onslaught? It might feel yonks away yet, but let’s face it, Christmas is almost upon us. And so it’s time to get prepared. I love this time of year – even if it does involve a lot of work – because, well, it’s just magical.
ON SATURDAY I went out for a festive afternoon tea in my pyjamas. Yep really. They were leopard print and really rather fetching as pj’s go. Naturally I wore them with super heels (the slippers stayed at home on this occasion) and accessorised them to the max. Well it is Christmas after all right? Anyway, it was a pretty special gathering. There was delicious food, the best Christmas cakes I’ve
