Now the depths of autumn have set in, it’s time to get serious about winter style (and Christmas preparations). For me, once Halloween and bonfire night are over, the countdown has officially begun and the magic of shopping, decorating and traditions hang in the air. The dark nights signify cosy, festive evenings and as long as I’m wrapped up warm I love walking home to my flat past the sparkly shops with that cold, November feel getting me all excited! I’ve already willingly let Bublé back into my life to sooth me from uni stress with Christmas cheer, started scouting presents for friends and family and written my list to Santa – here’s a peek at what’s on it…
It’s my bday month (!!!) so I’m on the lookout for the goodies I’m going to treat myself to – because if you can’t do it on your birthday, when can you?! I love being a summer baby, partly because I’m one of the youngest in my friendship / year group, so while for every previous coming of age milestone I’ve been irritated to have to wait my turn (drinking, driving…) now it’s kind of a blessing because I’m still 19. Although not for long. And while it’d be dreamy to stay a teenager forever (please, let me) I’m super excited to be celebrating with some of my closest friends in my fave way: a garden party. That’s the other thing I love about having a birthday slap bang in the middle of summer – it’s a smashing excuse to have a barbie, crack out the Pimms and get your boogie on in the garden, come rain or shine (most probably rain, this is Wales after all). So, here’s whats on the top of my list this year (hint hint).
Hello from 2017, here’s wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year (which won’t be hard if it’s even a bit better than 2016…). I apologise for my incognito stance for the past few weeks, I’ve been making the most of the holidays and completely relaxing – which actually fills more time than you’d think (explaining my absence to weekly posts). But I’m back and full of ideas which I’ll try my best to fit around uni work.
Bonfire night is over, which means now it’s basically Christmas. And we all know what the festive period entails… SPARKLE. Yes, the party season is soon to be in full swing so it’s time to get the gladrags out and cover ourselves head to toe in glitter. This month I’ve compiled my list to include some statement looks that will be the centrepiece at any winter party, as well as a few essentials that are on my own Christmas list (lets hope I’ve made it on the nice list this year).
