Blogmas day 23// Outfit of the day – Casual&Cosy♥

IMAG2581IMAG2563    IMAG2684IMAG2582 IMAG2608  IMAG2644

Hey everybody!

Its nearly here Christmas is around the corner literally guys because there’s only 2 days until Christmas!

Today I’ve got my favourite section of post because its an outfit of the day I know you guys love them plus it feels like ages since I last did one! For my make-up I did a dark maroon lip to compliment my outfit with a neutral base and eye make-up if you want a post on this make up look do let me know in the comments.

Black Rebel Club Jumper – H&M. I couldn’t find the link to the jumper but I’ve included a link to the t-shirt instead but I’m sure you’ll be able to get it in store if your quick, H&M jumpers are my favourite as they’re the perfect fit and just so comfy as well as casual.

Black Skinny Jeans – New Look. Black jeans again are simple yet a necessity in every girls wardrobe but for me they’ve got to be high waisted because that means extra comfy!

Chelsea Platform Boots – ASOS. Again same as the jumper I couldn’t find the exact link but the link I’ve included is a similar pair. I love my boots especially because I’m quite short and they make me look so much taller – plus they’re perfect for winter.

Burgundy Check Scarf – Primark. Finally, my scarf I love it so much. As its so comfy and compliments every winter outfit perfectly.

This is one of my favourite outfits during winter as its cosy yet not too dressy – its just right!

Hello lovelies!

The clock is ticking and there’s only 4 days until Christmas! Are you feeling festive??

I’ve got one my favourites which is the strawberry santas which are festive as well as healthy.

Ingredients –  

1/4 cup mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
12 large strawberries
24 mini chocolate chips

 

Directions – 

For the frosting: In a medium bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the mascarpone and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar until the mixture is thick and smooth. Using a spatula, transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a small star piping tip.

For the Santas: Using a paring knife, cut off the leaf-end of each strawberry to make a flat surface. Cut a 1/2- to 3/4-inch piece from the pointed end of each strawberry and reserve as the hats.

Place the strawberries, wide-side down, on a work surface. Pipe a 3/4-inch-high swirl of frosting on each strawberry. Place the hats on top and pipe a small ball of frosting on top of the hats. Press two chocolate chips, pointed-sides inward, into the swirl of frosting to make eyes.

Hey guys!

The countdown now gets exciting because there’s only 5 days until Christmas! 5!!! It’s the time of the month were I showcase to you what I really love and want and unfortunately this is the last one because in January I want to start another series of monthly posts which will be new and innovative –  so look out for that eek.

1.Slim Pocket Coat – Topshop. This coat is slimline which I love. During December I have been loving the simple and layered look and as I think with this coat the look would be complete.

2.LongTee – H&M. Baggy long tees are just the best to lounge around the house in and if your a blogger its perfect for a lazy blogging day so its essential especially for Christmas time to stay snug and warm.

3.Flecked Jacket – Mango. I think this cardigan is so simple but yet would look flattering over a blouse or smart shirt.

4.Grey Simple Dress – Zara. Again, going with the simple theme this would look super cute with a pair of boots and a waist coat or faux fur jacket.

5.Sleeve Shirt – New Look. Sleeve shirts are a item which I love and could but consistently because you can never run out of ways to style them.

6.Jamie Jeans – Topshop. Recently I have been loving blue jeans ans what better jeans are there than topshop jeans none right?

7.Retro Playsuit  – River Island. I fell in love with this. I saw this in store and oh my god this would be perfect for a Christmas/NYE party.

8.Multi Rip Grey Jean – Miss Selfridge. Again, ripped jeans I’ve been loving and this charcoal grey colour is flawless.

9.Classic Slip Ons – Vans. I have worn my check-board slip on vans to death and honestly I’d love a new pair and what better ones than the all black slip ones. I need them ASAP.

10.Metal Trim Clutch – River Island. This would just compliment any party dress or play-suit and is perfect to carry your minimal party items this Christmas/NYE.

11.Studded Heals – New Look. Finally these studded heals will allow you to look taller and honestly its the lacing that I love.

Hello everybody!

I’ve had the most boring Saturday ever..however I hope you all had a good eventful Saturday ensuring you got all your last minute shopping done. There’s only 6 days until Christmas!

Today’s post is my idea of the perfect night in for A/W and especially as Christmas is occurring cosy nights in are the best at this time of the year.

1// Cosy Blanket to keep you warm – As its winter you need to be cosy on the sofa and there’s only one formula for this and that’s having a chunky blanket to keep you nice and warm.

2// Peanut butter hot drink – Peanut Hottie  I mentioned this in my bloggers review box post. Since then I’ve tried this and I really enjoy drinking it. So to also keep you warm and as a treat have your favourite hot drink whether its hot chocolate, tea or coffee.

3// Favourite chocolate – Maltesers. As another treat have your favourite chocolate whilst watching a Christmas film.

4// Love Heart Scented Tea Lights – Debenhams. Tea lights and candles are a lovely companion as well as having the light dimmed to have the calm and collected atmosphere.

5// Sweet Snuggles Cosy Socks – Superdrug. Finally, have something warm on your feet whether its snug socks or slippers. I got this off my secret santa as well as a few other goodies which I cannot wait to try!

Blogmas day 17//Tips for wrapping presents!♥

IMAG2532 IMAG2534 IMAG2535 IMAG2536

Hello everyone!

There’s only 8 days until Christmas, and time for buying and wrapping gifts is running out. As I was wrapping presents for my friends I thought I’d share some tips for you on making wrapping presents the neatest and easiest way possible for you.

1// Use double- stick tape to speed up your process.

2//Use plain brown paper bags or parcel and add merry Christmas stamp to give it a vintage look.

3//Tie a ribbon around plain, unwrapped boxes for a simple look that still feels elegant.

4//If a present is oddly shaped wrap it like a piece of candy. Pull the sides over the gift and tie it with a ribbon.

5//If you don’t want to wrap the gift place the gifts into a festive gift bag.

What’s your favourite wrapping technique? Comment below.
