Seriously, I cannot believe that I have already put up my tree and drizzled it in silver, for yet another year has passed me by. I love to really lap up the Christmas spirit because my kids are in the prime time to enjoy all the magic of Christmas, being 4 and 6 years old. So I get organised early and lap up the December nights with fairy lights shining bright in my lounge room.
I was lucky enough top partner with Marks and Spencer to get my home looking spesh and I even started ticking off some of my Christmas pressie list too.
It’s fun to inject some Christmas decor, this Marks and Spencer printed robin cushion (pictured above) is super cute and has all the colours and vibes of a winter wonderland.
I’m loving comfort for this summer and I’m usually the one doing quite a bit of last minute running around for friends and family’s gifts so when I saw this skirt, I had to have! It’s only $48 and pairs back beautifully with white sneakers. The top ($34) is also a Marks and Spencer fave. Pure cotton too!
I can hear your mini-squeals from here. Can you believe Marks and Spencer has little reindeer bags just like this one? EEEeeek. Clementine is already in love with hers. Only $25 and holds all her trinkets.
I’m a sucker for sparkles and I know my lil sis will adore this jumper ($48) when the chilly weather comes back to hit us. She’ll probably team with a denim skirt on Christmas Day, cos she’s much more of a fun-ster when it comes to fashion, than me.
I wrap all of my pressies with quite a bit of TLC. I think it’s something my Mum taught me over time. If you’re going to do it, do it properly so each year in my house, there’s a pretty defined theme. This year I am using traditional red and white, with matching bows.
Green top (pictured) is being wrapped for my mum, who has always looked beautiful in dark green tones. Hope she’s not reading this. 🙂
I actually am running low in the lingerie department and have been wanting a white non padded bralet ($18) to sit underneath white shirts. Looks so beautiful with some gold jewellery so here’s a present To Chelsea, Love Chelsea. Ooops.
I have never gotten over the blush pink / rose pink phase so these $37 heels are perfection with my new black jump suit. Great also if you have wider feet because they’re made for that! They also come in navy, red and black.
The cross body bag (with free scarf that can also be worn in your hair) is only $56 and matches perfectly with my new heels.
Add some bling to your outfits this Christmas. The hoop earrings I picked out are only $15 and super good quality.
