It just isn't christmas unless you push your body to the brink of alcoholism & diabetes.


We are sat in my cosy little sitting room which smells of cinnamon, pumpkin, cranberries & Pine trees! There are oil burners in every corner & when I walk through the front door a christmassy smell welcomes me. My tree is up, the mulled wine is simmering, there are tins of Quality Streets & Roses on the coffee table & presents under the tree!

I always celebrate christmas eve & day with my friends watching The Holiday, Home Alone & Love Actually are a little tradition. Tomorrow we will get up pop the champagne put on our silly jumpers, play christmas songs & of course, open our presents! Then its off to my friends Grams house where she cooks THE best vegetarian christmas dinner & we wear silly hats & pull crackers, tell not-so-funny jokes & watch christmas telly. I'm still waiting on the snow but I don't think its coming this christmas :(

These are a few images from We heart it that make me feel more christmassy :)







!!! Merry Christmas Everyone !!!

I work part time at my Mothers shop in North Wales called Indigo Moon. It sells little gifty things & vintage & antiques. I thought I'd share a few pics.



















 & these are the pictures my mum makes! They sell so fast! proud mother moment ;)


These pictures really don't do the shop justice at all its such a pretty place filled with clutter & so alike Aladdins cave. I need to remember my canon in future.

My friends & I take part in Secret Santa every year & I love it! My friends are brilliant to buy for. There are a mixture of very silly immature ones & very serious ones & I would say I am a a bit of both. On the first of December we always take names out of a hat & the rules are no telling or swapping & no price range. We don't have a price range because we are all very close (have been for 17 years now) & we enjoy giving the present's & seeing each other smile. We are a group of 11 girls (including myself) & 6 boys so for ideas I headed to Firebox & Urban Outfitters online for some great pressie ideas.

1. Mustache Drink Flask - My friends & I like our drink, they would find this hilarious.

2. Mini walkie talkies - Just to show our childish side, we would actually use these. I'm serious.

3. F*ck Off Sleep Mask - I personally think this is hilarious, they're my first thoughts in the morning if someone wakes me. 

4. Glass Jewelry Box - My girlfriends love their jewelry & this little Jewelry box is adorable.

5. Retro Headphones - Most of my guy friends do Music media courses so I think they would appreciate these.

6. Polaroid picture Hanger - We all have a polaroid camera & I'm kinda surprised that none of us already have one of these babies.

7. Owl Cushion - I have a certain friend who does textiles & loves owls. This would be perfect for her

8. Skull Spirits - We all love our drink & this Skull Vodka & its case are pretty awesome.

9. Scorpion Vodka - My friends would hate me if I got this but for a dare it would be interesting to see who backs down haha

Also we have decided to create one of these. A memory Jar. Fill it up with memories & then on new years open it & have a good laugh & cry. We cant wait to start it, we'll all be howling next New years!


I cant wait to start buying! Luckily all my christmas shopping for family & college friends is done & just needs to be wrapped!

Right now I'm drinking Starbucks Peppermint mocha & listening to Christmas songs & waiting for the predicted snow. It's put me in a great christmassy mood :)

When the cold weather comes you can often always find me in a cosy knit jumper either drinking Eggnogg lattes form Starbucks or running backwards & forwards in the cold winds from photoshoots. Nothing makes me warmer or happier than a warm jumper in winter.
Last night I was just doing some online christmas present shopping & couldnt help but share these fab jumpers from Topshop & River Island!





 I have never actually worn a christmassy jumper & I don't find them cheesy or embarrassing  in the slightest. I think this year I will break the mold & buy one of the festive pretties from Topshop.

Now I need to start looking out for a New years eve outfit :)

I found my little kitty, Arnold, sleeping on my bed. He looked so sweet & peaceful I thought I'd share a few photo's.







I love him to pieces. Mucky paws & all.

Interior Design

I need a room revamp & have been searching blogs, tumblr & we heart it for inspiration & these Rooms below are something along the lines that I want.


I need a space to put all my trinkets & things to me this is a must.


As for colour I have been thinking bright white walls & dark brown hardwood floors & then everything else will be the colours.





I need a comfy space, I don't spend a lot of time in my room but when I do it reminds me why its a comfort zone.


I love books stacked in various places, I prefer it to shelves. I am a messy & very unorganized person.. I guess this shows it haha.


I love the little wooden desk in the corner, I'm going to have to invest in one of these!


&  I love this idea! Totally going to paint blackboard paint & get my friends to doodle all over it. No one will  ever know how excited I am to do this :')


I used to think that white was such a boring colour & a few years previous I wouldn't even consider it but I now I cant wait to get started.


I love this window sill, just wish I had this view :(


My house is full of moodboards & my room is no exception.


I probably wont start decorating til next year now but I just wanted to get some ideas ready. 


Also these shoes & necklace were on sale in Topshop! Obviously couldn't let them slip ;)




& have just finished my nails! Excuse the rubbish pictures, too lazy to use the camera! I bought Macs Jade Dragon & topped it with glitter. I thought I'd add some sparkle to my outfit tonight, my friends & I go are going out to watch the City lights come on in Cardiff. I have had such a busy week in college I cant wait to stand & relax in the cold with a hot starbucks then to treat ourselves to Jamie Olivers Italian restaurant.
