Feeling very wintery and festive today, not least because we had our first smattering of snow in my hometown (which, strangely enough, isn't where these photos were taken), or because I've finally been reunited with my favourite flat winter boots. I went Christmas shopping with my brother and sister today, and it was chaotic! Never leaving it to the last minute again, I'm still not finished with my shopping!

I bought this Topshop jersey top about a year or more ago, and still absolutely love it. It's just as good as new even after about a hundred washes, and is the cosiest jersey top I own at the moment! I scrunched the front of it up - it usually falls quite low and I wear with leggings on most days - and belted it up with my bargain H&M dress. The wonderful and talented Jaymie sent me a parcel of her jewellery goodies this morning, and it feels like Christmas has definitely come early for me! The Fifi Lapin inspired necklace is adorable and really unique, and my illustrated ring even got me some 'Is that Mulberry?!' comments today. Seriously recommend Jaymie's shop to you all, she is a very talented girl with the loveliest of pieces.

Speaking of Mulberry, I only went and won myself a runner's up place in their Online Fashion Week competition last week! It made my day, week, month and year, so a huge thank you to Carli at Mulberry for the beautiful package, and another big thanks to Niran, my (very) part-time blog photographer. More on that later in the week, but for now, you can see my entry and the other winners' entries on the Mulberry blog. I entered their Win Your Wishlist competition a few weeks ago, but chances are quite slim of me winning two of their competitions within two weeks, eh?

Finally, a bit of a shameless plug: the Marie Claire Blog and Twitter Awards are coming up, and it would mean the world to me if you'd take a quick minute (not sure what a 'quick minute' is, but I'll go with it...!) to nominate me? You can nominate up until the 31st December, but I'd love the chance to write for their website, so get your noms in! Right, I am feeling suitably guilty for asking now, and equally thirsty for some coffee. Time for pyjama, coffee and topknot time!

  11. Aw, your ring is so completely adorable! I would not be able to stand outside without at least 3 layers on, though, haha! Though, I am Australian and weak against this freezing weather.
    Good luck with those competitions! That Mulberry one sounds like a dream to win.
