Sleighbells ring, are you listening?

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope everyone had an awesome day yesterday- I certainly did so thought I'd share it.

Me and the fella had xmas dins at our flat; my first time at Christmas dinner!

Shortly after taking this, I knocked a glass of the rose cava all over the bf, cream carpet and curtain- oops!

Deffo ousted the sprouts for my version!

It turned out really well and was delish- if I do say so myself!

After our dinner we headed up to my mum's in North Yorkshire for the afternoon/evening.

Failed to take ONE family photo. Mainly just ones of my dog!

I thought I'd share my pressies with you. I was totally spoilt.

Left to Right: Vintage Style by Sarah Kennedy (AMAZING), Making Vintage Accessories by Emma Brennan, Gorgeous by Gok Wan party nails bag, vintage-style fabric photoframe, floral tea tray, Olay moisturiser, LUSH bath bombs, The Good Girl on DVD (been looking for this all over), Cath Kidston coat hangers, jewelled trinket box, Baylis and Harding Vintage Rose hand soap, various biscuits and choccies, Cath Kidston mugs and milk jug, Wok, Kurt Geiger Woking boots.

My mum got me all the floral stuff- she knows me well!

And how thoughtful is this, she wrapped my wok up with noodles, sesame oil, soy sauce and Chinese five spice!

Oh and how cute is this fox ring my boyf got me?!

Please ignore the poor, poor attempt at Christmas nail art!
Hope you're all having a chilled out Boxing Day. I've been at work today but am home now, sipping on a brew in one of my new mugs, shopping online (buying a dupe of that Zara bag) and watching Come Dine With Me.

Vintage tees and skinheads

Hello strangers!

Sorry for my absence; having a full time job is taking its toll!

For those who didn't know, I'm now an E-Commerce Assistant at Flannels Fashion and loving it!

I've even been able to help out with their blog and write a few bits myself. Here's the latest one I wrote.

So yeah, working 9-5 has been so nice after 3am starts in my stint at the airport. I never thought I was a 9-5 sort of girl but it seems that I am- must be growing up!

I haven't had time to do much shopping and mooching around at places of interest, hence not a lot to blog about...

However I thought today I'd share this cool Levi's T shirt I picked up at my local Oxfam for £5.99- yeah I know, Oxfam is extortionate! But I'd have paid a tenner in a vintage shop so not too horrific.

Tshirt: £5.99, Oxfam; Earrings: 50p, car boot sale; Inverted Cross Necklace: ASOS; Boots: Kurt Geiger

It's a men's medium which is what I like in these sorts of T shirts. Rather than hacking the sleeves off as I normally would, I just rolled them up- it is winter and all.

P.S. I've been messing around with Photoshop if that wasn't already obvious. It's also pretty clear I'm not great at it! I'm trying to teach myself how to edit photos to look like they're taken with a Lomo camera. they're coming out a bit dark so will have to work on that (the T shirt is old and faded out to a grey colour by the way).

The boots I'm wearing are an early Christmas present from the boyf.

I actually chose them myself! They're from Kurt Geiger. I was going to buy them then my boyf divulged that he was intending to buy me a pair for Christmas anyway so it made sense to just get them for me.

I've been wearing them already because I desperately needed something substantial on my feet to fight the awful, wet weather conditions.

I wanted something that was my style, yet was smart enough to wear for work so these flat chelsea boots fit the bill perfectly.

On a side note, did you all watch This is England '88?

I absolutely love the series- I think even more than I loved the film. Though for me, the first series was slightly better.

One thing that never changes though is the amazing styling. Lol is up there with my biggest style icons.

What did you think of '88?
