Once bitten and twice shy

Ho ho ho, Happy Christmas everyone! Who's still sober?

Today I am mainly wrapping presents, watching my favourite Christmassy film, and catching up with some of my favourite blogs. I've got 11 days off work which I am absolutely ecstatic about! Next week I'm going down to the Winter Wonderland in London, but before then I'm determined to see as many of my friends as I can, eat too much, and soak up the festive atmosphere. I bloody love Christmas.

I haven't done an outfit post for aaaages, but I wanted to show off my latest leopard print piece gifted to me by Lavish Alice. I only discovered this website this year, but have already shopped there about six times - their range of knitwear is fantastic. I'm obsessed with anything leopard print but I liked this frock because it wasn't your classic orange style. It's midi length which is perfect for showing off a pair of ankle boots and for keeping my knobbly knees warm too.

My new specs are also leopard print, but I'll be blogging about those later in the Christmas hols. They're a little bigger and thicker than my other pair and tbh I was a bit worried that twinned with the hat my friends would scoff "hipster" under their breath. When I said this to them though, they said I was a hipster before anyway without the hat or specs, so that's fine.

More posts to come this week, promise! Hope you're all having a bloody fantastic festive week!
