Writing this on Boxing Day, still in a food coma, and still indulging in too many films. I think I've reached that point where all the storylines are blurring into one holiday fest: at the moment, ET has discovered he's an elf and is returning to Neverland to marry an ogre princess. Yup, that sounds about right for a Christmas film! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day, mine was seriously good, I was an excitable chocolate eating machine for 18 hours until I conked out in bed.

I wore this outfit on Christmas Eve to do the Santa run, i.e. drop presents off to everyone's houses. I'm in love with my cable knit leggings from River Island. Went shopping with the Mamabear last Monday, because she seems to have some sort of agenda against me wearing leggings in public. I like to buy really opaque, thick leggings, but obviously all mothers like to disagree with our clothing choice, and she deemed mine inappropriate. I spied these in River Island and within two minutes, they were mine! Mum bought two pairs of shoes: identical except for the colour... so that's where my affinity for shopping comes from. I kept everything simple because I woke up at about 1pm and had to leave the house pretty sharpish, but the muted grey tones and scarlet red glitter nails look pretty chic in my opinion.

How has everyone's Christmas break been then? My lead up to the big day was spent mostly in London, I even saw Tom Fletcher, of McFly fame doncha know, in Westfield White City on Tuesday and fangirled to the best of my ability. So gutted that I didn't ask for a photo, but I couldn't be bothered to fight my way through the swarms of fangirls in Lush! Spent Christmas Day at home with a roast goose for company, then mounds of chocolate and pink champagne, followed by lobster. Alriiight Chinese Christmas?! I was very spoilt this year, and my Mama, Dad, brother and sister were all pleased with their presents too. Today/tonight, I'll be going to my Granny's house for round two with some of my extended family, and a Chinese hotpot. Nom. 

Thanks to my little sister Louise, again, for braving the icy wind to help me with photos again!

  12. Aha love mothers inputs on out clothing choices. I do love this tights though the detail on them is really nice! It sounds like you had a lovely Christmas Day :) I'm pretty sure my Mother bought me these shoes for Christmas, I asked for 'black flats suitable for placement' so she did a good job :P Hope you have a lovely time at your Granny's house :)

    Happy Christmas queridita, I love that you get so into Christmas, you're just so damned sweet. I'm glad that it was everything that you wanted and you're looking (as ever) just fab in your leggings- and what can I say, I'm slowly getting used to wearing mine too, my mother is delirious- so much smaller in the machine that jeans!
