So Festive

Oooh Christmas is but a few days away and we’ve been delivering presents to friends and relatives over the last few days. I do love Christmas from watching Christmas movies (Home Alone 2 is by far my favourite Xmas movie) to giving presents to family/friends that I haven’t seen in the longest time. I finally finished Christmas shopping yesterday…and the shopping centre was so busy! Crazy.

We have had a bit of snow…but not nearly as much as I would have liked! This means lots and lots of layering up. It’s lucky that I have such a gorgeous coat (21st bday gift from my parents) which is the warmest coat that I own! It’s also still in the best condition and really will be a coat that will carry through many many more Winters to come…already 2 years running!

Coat (Vivienne Westwood)
Wearing lots of grey…I love my woolly heart tights.

Long sleeved tee (Heattech by Uniqlo), Crop top, skirt and tights (Topshop) Scarf (Gift), Boots (Red or Dead)

I really want an AA circle scarf but a little put off by the fact that they are literally cuts of raw material that are very very overpriced. I should go down to the fabric store and buy myself some cotton and make the same thing for a fraction of the price. For now, I make do with my lime pashmina (which I can’t leave the house without), tied in a knot and doubled over.

My youngest sister Becky posing for the camera. It’s great having younger siblings because she still gets so excited about snow and presents under the tree. She’s only recently stopped believing in Santa which is sad but we’ve all got to stop believing at some point! I remember when I used to leave mince pies, a glass of milk and a carrot for Santa and his Reindeers. Haha!

It’s so cold and even better than layering up outdoors, it’s so much better being indoors with a hot mug of tea and a warm fire. A gas fire may not be quite the same as a roaring fireplace but it’s just as good!

I’ve also had my hair cut and had my fringe cut a little thicker! For those who have fringes (or bangs!) I’m sure you guys understand what I mean about fringe issues. Yuck I hate it when my fringe separates. It’s so much better now!

So this will be my last post before Christmas! I have a couple of crazy days revising for January Exams but also preparing for Christmas festivities! I usually travel to my cousins house and we have Chinese hot pot on Christmas eve, traditional Christmas dinner on Christmas day and then go to my Grandmothers on the evening for a traditional Chinese feast…with another potential hot pot meal on Boxing day! I will probably be too fat to fit into my clothes by next week!

Happy Holidays everyone!
