Merry Boxing day Boxing day!* I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that you've awoken from various food comas. My parents banned me from eating my 4th mini Christmas dinner today. It was sad. Anyway, instead of listing gifts (both the nail polish- which chips like crazy -and ring were gifts though) I'll list what we ate. So I can relive the deliciousness which is Christmas food.

Starter: Gravlax - cold cured salmon (which I cured myself!) with a creamy horseradish sauce and capers
Main: Roast turkey, pigs in a blanket, stuffing, sage & onion sausage meat, almond & marzipan sausage meat, brussel sprouts, slightly charred parsnips, roast potatoes all smothered in gravy and served with bread sauce & cranberry jelly. Mmmm
Dessert: White chocolate cheese cake, Christmas pudding

Yes Christmas lunch is quite the (delayed) occasion at my house. Looking forward to turkey soup & sandwiches. Anyway, I've got to go and drain my cinnamon & gingerbread syrup. Originally meant to be gingerbread, but got a bit excited with the cinnamon sticks... 
I'll leave you with my favourite Christmas tree decoration, this adorable owl.

*For Americans, that's the British name for the day after Christmas when you give presents to your servants, post men etc. This year my servants (aka my three brothers) got their presents on the day. Lucky beggars


Aimlessly wandering towards blue

A very quick outfit post, not the best photos but it rained all day and my boyfriend, bless him, is still learning how to use the 'big' camera. I'm wearing some missguided leggings I had on my xmas list then came across by chance on ebay, which I've actually had to break in. First time I've had to break in a pair of leggings...

Loving all things penguin related: I want this canvas penguin print bag from Isobel Kho, and this animal onesie (or kigurumi). Or someone start breeding me a micropenguin in preparation for my birthday. Preferably looking like this

Awww. Hope you're having a very merry lead up to Christmas


Dress to the point

  • So I'm not a little black dress kind of girl... I like dresses like this
  • How incredibly dodgy is this lighting? As much as I would like to fix it when taking photos, I've noticed the autofocus on my camera is rubbish on any setting which isn't "automatic". And I missed the warranty for my broken lens gahhh.
  • Anyway, everything is good, just sitting and waiting for term to be over and for Christmas to hit me. Seriously. WHERE IS IT? C'est une bonne question.
Fact Rant:
  • I just booked my summer holiday (AYIA NAPA 2K12*).
  • Got offers from three unis :)
  • Bought a glittery blackberry case like this muhahahaha
  • Buy from my shop
See y'all

**Awkz that I intially posted this with the draft title "dress". Self explanatory and straight to the point, essentially blunt, which is what I'm famous for in the real world. Ohhh the irony

  •  Wondering whether I can fit into age 14years in H&M? I love that black furry coat, reminds me of the Topshop version which sold out pretty quickly
  • Currently craving dark red and purple lipstick. So Gucci AW10 but the secret goth in me opposes
  • I still don't have a pair of Isabel Marant/Acne lookalikes? And I'm still a blogger?
