Christmas Outfit of the Day and Home Decor

Hello there! Merry Christmas!

It's finally that time of the year that we can put up Christmas trees, twinkly lights and lots of other decorations and the Christmas jumpers come out of the closet.

Speaking of which, this is my lovely outfit of the day:

My 'I <3 Santa' Jumper, my Santa leggings and my fuzzy socks are all from PRIMARK.

I got them last year but there's lots more this year too so I will be buying another pair of leggings for sure because they are super comfy to wear.

Moving on to some home decor:

My theme is always predominantly gold, with some cream or bronze details on the tree itself and some red accents in the rest of the room.

I got the tree from Argos and the majority of my baubles from Primark two years ago. Then I started adding some slightly more special decorations from Sainsbury's (birds, reindeer and snowflakes) and Tiger (apples).

It's always good to add little accents like a Christmas bag or a present under the tree or this little star banner from Sainsbury's that will make everything look so much more put together.

Cushions are always good to add some extra festive accents to your living room or bedroom.

The gold one is from H&M and it's part of my normal decor but paired with the two red ones from Primark it makes everything look really festive and cosy.

Fawns are also a holiday must, as they are super cute and adorable. I got these from Tiger.
As for the trees, they are from Sainsbury's and I think they look perfect on a window sill, bringing some of the nature that's outside inside.

 And so the living room is done and I feel so much happier because I can relax and look at all the decorations with some hot cocoa and some gingerbread men. Yummy!

(holiday) cheers,

Fashion Fix! A Day In Cambridge!

Well hello there!

I believe you may have noticed my absence the past few months. I have been working a lot and therefore had no time to sit down and blog properly. All the stuff that I have been writing recently have been for ReadWave and have been super interesting and exciting! However, I kept taking photos of some things, like this great day I had with Amy in Cambridge last month!

I look pretty chilled in these photos but the truth is I was freezing without my coat. I even had to borrow this cardigan from Amy because just the dress and coat were not enough. Blogging comes first though!

This slightly school uniform inspired tartan dress is something I loved wearing this winter and totally plan to keep for spring as well. It is a little on the short side though, but I have no shame, so it's all good.

My Outfit: Dress - Primark, Boots - New Look, Coat - Primark, Bag - Primark

This is what I call my Alice in Wonderland photo. I absolutely love it! And those flowers below look unreal!

What I find quite amusing is that Amy's outfit is like the teacher counterpart to my schoolgirl. A nice navy dress with a coral cardigan and tan brogue shoes, belt and bag. A nice way to add a pop of colour and keep warm on a rainy day in Cambridge.

By the way, a big thanks to the poor guy we made to take this last photo (and several others that I have not posted here) and a big thanks to all of you for being patient with me and reading this blog.
