6 Things To Love About December.


It's right what they say. December really is the most wonderful time of the year. Since we're into the second week of the month, I think it's only right that things get a little festive round these parts, and what better way than to talk about my favourite things about the season? Rather than putting my Canon to good use, I thought I would scan in a semi-embarrassing throwback snap to go alongside. Thinking about it, I've probably grown about 3cm since this photo was taken, but who's counting.

On to the festivities...

1. The food. 
I am a self confessed foodie, so naturally this was going to come out top. Mince pies, Christmas dinner, oh, and the chocolate-shaped breakfasts of course. It's a yes from me.

2. Christmas vibes. 
This is most definitely 'a thing'. I've decorated two trees so far this year, drunk all the hot chocolate and listened to my fair share of jolly tunes, so I'm feeling pretty damn Christmassy right about now. There's just something about this time of year that I adore. People are, for the most part, jollier, there's all the markets you could possibly wish for (and then some), lights, and did I mention the food?

3. The fashion. 
I love me some knitwear, and the whole layering up thing is music to my ears, so basically Winter attire is the combination of dreams. Don't even get me started on pyjamas...

4. The music. 
I mean, c'mon, obviously. Sure, some of the covers are slightly questionable, but the classics just never get old. Bing Crosby, Chris Rea, Wham!, the list goes on. Catch me rockin' around the Christmas tree all day, errrydayy.

5. The chills.
I get two weeks off for Christmas, and holy guacamole, am I excited. 14 days of minimal alarms, chilling out with my favourite humans and watching/consuming all the things. It's gonna be a blast.

6. The fresh start.
Yup, seriously cliché, but I am one of those people that believe in the whole, 'tidy room/desk/whatever, tidy mind' motto. So to some extent, the thought of a brand new year is somewhat satisfying. I don't tend to go too crazy when it comes to the New Years resolutions side of things, but I'll have one or two stored in the back of my mind to no doubt have completely forgotten about come February.

So there we have it. A pretty generic list of my favourite happenings this time of year, but hey, I was feeling festive and my laptop was in reach. Let's blame the mince pie I just devoured.

Are you a big Christmas person? What are your favourite things about December?

Hide and Seek.


So this is a bit of a surprise. Two blog posts from me in the space of a few days? Practically unheard of.

Over the weekend, myself and this guy I know who really digs cameras ventured out into the cold to take a few snaps. And when I say a few, I really do mean a few, as despite the evident blue sky in shot, it wasn't exactly toasty out.

Because of this, I present to you 50% of an 'outfit of the day' post. Who even looks at the bottom half anyway, right? 


I seem to just stick to wearing the same ten things from within my wardrobe, and at the moment I'm practically glued to this tartan shirt-dress from Fat Face. By ''shirt-dress'', I actually mean ''shirt'', as unlike the model on the website, I wasn't really blessed in the whole height department side of things, so it actually falls mid-thigh on me. I love me a good shirt dress though, so every cloud.

I also opted to layer up with my trusty All Saints wax denim jacket. Not quite as heavy as a leather jacket but a little more so than classic denim, it's a piece I thoroughly enjoy wearing to add a little extra somethin' somethin' to an outfit. Also it's worth noting that All Saints offer student discount, so I managed to snap up this gem for a little over £100 last year. Not too bad for a quality wardrobe staple if you ask me. 


Moving topic ever so slightly... pinch punch, first of the month. Since we're officially into the last month of the year (how even?), it wouldn't be right for me to not acknowledge Christmas. I'm not going to lie, I'm feeling pretty festive right about now, but that may be something to do with the fact we've had Jingle Bells playing in the office for the past fortnight. Just over three weeks until the big day and I'm really hoping it's not just me that's yet to start their shopping...

So there we have it, another blog post, and one that's actually shared within a week from the last. Madness.

Oh, and whilst you're on a grand endeavour of browsing the web, be sure to go and check out Matt's website. He's pretty damn great at what he does, just sayin'.
