Santa Baby, Just Hurry Down The Chimney To Me

song of the day - Santa Baby by Kylie Minogue
This is something I have said multiple times, but I cannot wait for Christmas. To get fully in the mood I thought I'd do the Christmas tag. This tag has been floating around for a while now, so here we go!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
The Muppets Christmas Carol, hands down. I love it so much! Gonzo and Rizzo are just perfection. "Oh, there goes Mr Humbug, there goes Mr Grim...". Then of course there's Home Alone, and Jingle All The Way.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas Eve, we (and by 'we' I mean my family and I) eat around 5/6, then after that we'll hand out the gifts and open them. We do our main meal on Christmas Eve too.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Not really. I remember one year when my Grandma got one of mine and my brothers presents mixed up and so he got my tights and I got his socks. 
4. Favourite festive food?
Poppyseed cake. I love the stuff, but my Grandad would only make it for Christmas, so I'd look forward to it for all of December, then finally after our main meal I could have some.
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I don't think I have one. As a child I loved a little kitchen that I got. I remember playing with it all the time, and using salt and pepper as pretend food in the pots.  
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Does 'warmth' count?  Like, after you've been out all day, and you get inside and that heat immediately hits you, and the air kind of smells 'warm'.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
As I mentioned above we celebrate on Christmas Eve rather than on the day itself, so I guess that's kind of a tradition.
8. What tops your tree?
For the last few years a Star. 
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I honestly don't know. I can't remember ever asking for a Christmas gift, or wanting something really badly. I probably did, but nothing stands out.
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
The three Fs. Food, family, and friends.

Have you done the tag? Do let me know by leaving a comment below!

Your Attitude Determines Your Latitude

song of the day - Brand New by Kanye West
 necklace - Beaverbrooks
Christmas could not come sooner. It feels like these past few months have been dragging for me and I can't wait for it to be 2015. So much has changed over the past 11 months, and hopefully the good times keep on coming.
 cardi & blouse - Zara. skirt & leggings - Primark. boots - Bertie
I love wearing white blouses, but sometimes they make me feel like I'm back at school. I was at the dentists a few weeks ago and one of the other people waiting for a checkup actually thought I was still in secondary school, I just laughed it off and said "No Love, I'm off to work after this".
There's a thin line between 'mature' and 'school girl' when it comes to white shirts and black trousers.

I Know You Care

song of the day - 7/11 by Beyonce
My favourite recent purchase has to be this scarf from Primark. It was only £4, and it's so thick and warm. With the weather turning colder I won't be leaving the house without it.
 dress - Zara. scarf & tights - Primark. bracelet - Accessorize.
I had the sun setting behind me in this last photo, so it's not the best quality. Sorry about that, but I wanted to show a full length photo of the outfit.

One Less Problem

song of the day - Problem by Ariana Grande
 Since my last post winter has kicked off big time (even though we're still in autumn), which means it's time for all things wooly and cuddly.

Let's Take It Back To The Vintage

song of the day - Berzerk by Eminem
Oh I've had a busy month. On the 4th I started a new job (still in retail), and it's knackered me. It's no excuse for being so absent from the blogging world though. I've missed taking photos, but recently I've either been at work, or living in pyjamas. Hopefully I'll have a day off on Sunday so that I can catch up with some of my favourite blogs.
 Today I went out with a friend for the first time in what felt like years, in reality it was around a month. It was bliss to be out of work clothes.
top - Zara, cami & leggings - H&M. skirt - Primark. boots - Bertie.
How have you all been? Have I missed anything big in the blogging world (other than fashion week)?

Everybody Needs Somebody

song of the day - November Rain by Guns n Roses
*picture heavy post*
 Last week I went to a family friends wedding, and it was absolutely gorgeous (although very loud). I thought I'd share a few of my unedited photos (I really need to set up photoshop on my new laptop).

But You Tell Me

song of the day - Eve Of Destruction by PF Sloan.
My days are filled with interviews, job searches, and coffee. How about yours?
