I hope everyone has had a nice Christmas! This was the first Christmas in years that I could really enjoy it after having made so much progress in the last year and it’s been amazing for me. I was able to go and do all my Christmas shopping myself, I made Christmas dinner and I was able to be up out of bed for most of the day. I still struggled and there were things I still couldn’t do, but the improvement from last year has been incredible for me and I’m feeling extremely grateful for that. For any readers who are living with pain or any other health problems, I hope you have been able to enjoy Christmas as much as possible. I spent 4 Christmases confined to bed having to eat my dinner and open my presents lay down in absolute agony, so I know how hard it can be to enjoy this time of year.

One of my absolute dream wish list handbags is of course the Chloe Drew, probably the most coveted and Instagrammed designer bag of 2015. I’d have to win the lottery to have any chance of owning one any time soon, so instead I have to settle for the various high street versions that come with a much more affordable price tag. I love the easy style aesthetic and functionality of saddle bags, and I have Topshop’s current copy of the Drew in both black and tan. Earlier this year, Chloe brought out a ridiculously gorgeous patchwork python version of their new ‘It bag’ and I was desperately lusting after it. So, when I saw this patchwork Aldo saddle bag I had to have it. It gives the perfect 70s influence to my outfits and the patchwork pattern adds style and personality without being too over powering. With the right mix of modern and retro due to its classic shape and chic gold hardware, it truly is a great bag. What really appealed to me was that it has the ability to work with different styles. It would look as amazing worn effortlessly with jeans and a plain white tee as with a pretty printed dress. The styling possibilities are endless.

Everybody loves a little black dress; known for coming to the rescue in those ever occurring ‘I have nothing to wear’ situations. Personally, I’m also partial to a good little red dress too. As much as I love wearing black, I tend to find myself drawn towards more colourful, printed and bolder pieces. The great thing about this dress is that it satisfies my thirst for colour whilst being simple enough to offer versatility. The classic shift shape means it won’t go out of style, and its plain yet bold colour means I can style it pretty much however I want whilst still having it brighten up my look. I’ve always been fond of the colour red. Not only do I find it glamorous, but because of my blonde hair I usually suit it quite well. What drew me to this particular red dress were the gorgeous flared sleeves which I love and the on point turtle neckline. My camera struggled to capture just how beautiful the colour is, but it’s very much rouge red. The perfect colour to wear over Christmas.

One thing you should know about me is that I absolutely love Christmas! It’s my favourite time of the year. This year, I managed to find my perfect Christmas jumper dress from Asos. There are many reasons I fell in love with it: the knitted fabric and ribbed high neck make this super warm, its loose swing fit makes it comfy and cosy, the stylish chevron pattern makes it bang on trend, and the rainbow coloured metallic detail makes it festive and Christmassy. As an added bonus, the tinsel thread is only on the outside of the dress, meaning none of the skin itching you often get with anything metallic or glittery. I’ve already worn it a couple of times and love it so much. It’s going to be getting plenty of wear now that we’re in December. Speaking of, I can’t believe how quick Christmas is coming around. I haven’t really started my Christmas shopping yet, which is very unlike me. I’m normally totally prepared and organised. I don’t know what’s up with me this year. I’m planning on going into Manchester this week to try and get some done.
