photo 1 (35) Hehehe, this is the card I bought my sister for Christmas… It cracks me up every time so I thought I’d share! Cards I also bought these (all 3 cards are from Paperchase) and then decided they were too pretty to give away and have kept them as decorations in my room!

Merry Christmas one and all! I hope it’s a wonderful one!! 😀

I thought these Katy Perry for Claire’s Accessories phone cases were cute, especially the popcorn one!

Pic circus, Reg st

Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street. You can’t see it here but the theme of these decorations is Night at the Museum. I know that advertising is important and all but really, Ricky Gervais’ face is not the most Christmassy thing I can think of!

Tights with gold stars running up the back, that I wore for our work Christmas lunch, from Marks & Spencer.

I don’t care how cheesy it sounds, Christmas is definitely the most magical time of year! 😀

I’ve spent almost all of my 27 Christmases in London and I have to say, it never gets old. The decorations, the atmosphere, the lights, the bustle… it never ceases to put a spring in my step and a smile on my face!

I had my annual Christmas dinner with my friends from school recently. It was at my house this year and, as we had recently had a big turkey dinner for Thanksgiving (apparently we do that now), we decided to keep it casual and just all bring whatever food we fancied and have nibblies and drinks instead of dinner. This is how we ended up with 3 cheeseboards 😀

I wore:

Christmas OOTD1


Shoes tree

Zara nouveau grunge t-shirt, River Island sequinned jacket, M&S treggings, my new favourite necklace that my Dad gave me, and my new sparkly Converse trainers. I also wore my Revlon Black Cherry lipstick, which my friends all complimented me on, but said that I should be aloof and bitchy whilst wearing it, and giggling was strictly forbidden. (You can guess how well that worked out – especially once the alcohol started flowing and we decided to write our own Cards Against Humanity questions….)

The downside of having a large family…


Happy Monday everyone! (If ever such a thing was possible, it would be the Monday before Christmas! Or, if Christmas isn’t your bag, then the Monday that precedes a 4 day weekend!)

Update: WordPress just informed me that this is my 100th post! (Yay me!) And how fitting that it should be an ode to joy and rampant consumerism… :-p
