It's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas! Yep, there is no escaping the 'C' word now, everywhere you venture you are bound to be hit in the face with Christmas merriment and cheer. And I for one am loving it! Unsurprisingly, I have always been a fan of this time of year, birthday and Christmas all rolled into one, yippee.

Not to make you all jealous (she says smugly), but I have finished my Christmas shopping, it's all wrapped and ready to go. Yes I am one of those annoyingly organised people who sits smugly sipping hot chocolate while so many others run around trying to get their last minute shopping. Ho ho ho. I am certainly a Christmas elf, a smug, well organised Christmas elf! <polishes halo>

Enough of the smugness, I will, of course, continue to shop well into December.  I plan however to restrict my weekend hours in favour of evening due to the frankly mental conditions that greet us all at the weekend when we are insane enough to shop! That said, the husband and I did venture to Bluewater today, but it was bearable shopping, with a clear mission in mind. Hubby had some delicious leather converse to pick up and I had my new iPhone 5 to collect. Yum on both accounts. I also had to try on some watches as I am still trying to narrow it down and decide which one I would like the husband to purchase for me. Still undecided, bugger. Birthday is getting dangerously close. It may well end up as a Christmas present so I can buy myself more time to decide. Indecisiveness rules again. Grrrr.

And now for a round up of some outfits from this week. Nothing from yesterday due to a very lazy day relaxing at home (not sure joggers and hoodie constitute good style!):

  2. My fave outfits are the last two (I like a casual look because I can relate). I never think of wrist warmers but I really should as a lot of my jumpers have three quarter length sleeves (saves me folding over cuffs as I'm a titch). The berry Converse look great with the skinnies. I tried on the Zara stripe cardi/jacket in the summer and I must have been the only person it didn't suit which really kills me as I see people like yourself wearing it and looking really good. As for Christmas shopping - I have bought one present. Well, it's a start.

    1. Yep casual outfits are my fave too, dressing for work I don't find so interesting! Wish I could be casual every day but can't see that ever happening at school! (That said I am grateful that I don't have to wear a suit everyday like some schools insist!). I bought the Zara jacket o wear on the plane when we went on holiday in August, had kind of forgotten about it, but love it, so was glad to re-discover!

    2. Oh and forgot to say about the arm-warmers- freaking love them! Like you I have a lot of 3 quarter length jumpers so they are a life sizer. I like how they look too, and they are perfect in the morning when you get in the car and the steering wheel is freezing! X

    1. Good for you, feels nice to be ahead of the crowds with the pressies! Yep I bought the skirts a while back but they still have similar styles. I find them really easy to wear for work, easy to mix up with different tops. xx
