It must have been the mistletoe…

I’m usually a stickler for leaving Christmas until December. I get started on the shopping, but the tree et all must wait. This year has been an aberration in so many ways and I needed a little cheer. The tree has been up for a week.

Now it is time for my manicure to get in on the act. Since I won’t be having any actual parties any time soon, I’ve thrown a festive nail party. This is my first attempt at a disco ball & I’m loving it.

Present wrapping is my next Xmas distraction. I have an idea that I hope will be as pretty in reality as it is in my head.

Another year over, a new one just begun….

This year we suspended Hogmanay to focus our full attention on my beautiful sister’s 30th. My baby sister said goodbye to her roaring twenties with a very extravagant gatsby esque celebration. From champagne towers to dancing on the bar, it was absolutely the party of the year.

I wanted a really decadent dress with a taste of the flapper style. When I saw this Lovedrobe sequinned affair on the New Look website I knew it was the one. It jumped straight onto my wish list & in a very short time span, my wardrobe. A girl has to treat herself when her youngest sibling turns 30, if only to mask the panic of how old you feel. Needless to say I had a fantastic time as did everyone else.
I hope you all had a wonderful new year & all the best for 2015!

My eye make up & shoe game were top notch.

For the sake of auld lang syne…

I’ve never written about fashion (or fatshion if you prefer) before, but I have been writing for a very long time. I certainly have no problem expressing myself through my clothes, so with a little bit of luck I should be able to find my style voice too.
I’m kicking off with the outfit I wore on New Year’s Eve, mainly because I felt bloody good that night. Tartan seemed appropriate for Hogmanay with the faux (veggie safe) leather adding a smidgeon of sex appeal. I wore it with some sneaky support leggings, which look like thick tights, but do a marvellous job of smoothing your contours. The bonus with this dress & leggings are they are seriously comfortable meaning staying out all night was easy peasy.
