Christmas Lookbook!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... I took advantage of the beautiful snow that covered the UK to take some very festive photo's of my go-to outfits this December with a couple of casual that I will wear day to day, smart for work and dressy as we all know its time to party! 

Outfit 1 I paired a leather skirt with a cosy green jumper, black coat and of course, a pair of Chelsea boots as these are my winter staples. I loved the mix of textures in this outfit whilst the green hinted to the festive period without screaming cheesy Christmas.

For the second outfit (and the only one I didn't freeze in) I wore a simple pair of high waisted super skinny New Look Jeans with a reindeer Christmas jumper from Primark then layering up with my favourite winter item in my wardrobe which is a shearling coat from Then matching the grey with the jumper a cute little bobble hat. 

Keeping to the Christmas jumper theme, I paired another Primark jumper - this time with a Robin - with jeans, Chelsea boots and grey scarf. However, I probably wouldn't say the Santa's hat is appropriate for all occasions ;-) 

Onto the dressier options, I wore a red velvet dress with 3/4 sleeves, black over the knee boots and the same coat as in Outfit 1 which has removable fur on the collar. 

Last but not least my favourite outfit option is this black and gold dress with seemingly simple black court shoe heels however the heel is gold which I LOVE! I again wore a simple black coat which has become my winter staple as it can be thrown over anything and everything!

What are you wearing this season?

A Very Snowy Day!

For the first time in many years, a thick blanket of snow covered the city I live in and I don't think I have ever seen it so deep in my entire life.

My work got cancelled - like most things as the UK seems to not be able to cope with any snowy circumstances - so I braved the freezing cold all wrapped up for a lovely peaceful walk. The snow was virtually untouched looking beautiful so I couldn't resist taking some photographs. The walk also was the perfect thing to clear my mind, to appreciate life, nature and its natural beauty.

It really looked magical with all I can describe it as; is being like Narnia.

Did you get snow? Did you embrace it or hate it?

Hogwarts In The Snow!

Yesterday was quite possibly the most magical day of my life. With excited definitely being an understatement. I received tickets to go for my birthday back in June but I knew I wanted to experience it in winter so after 6 months of waiting I finally got to see the most spectacular and magical thing. Before going I didn't look at any pictures on social media and wouldn't listen to anyone who said what was there as I wanted it to be a complete surprise which it most definitely was. 

(So I wouldn't recommend looking at these pictures if you want the same effect!) 


It began with walking around the Great Hall, Gryffindor's common room and all of the magical special effects before flying a broomstick over the streets, rivers and Hogwarts itself via a green screen - photographs are available at every stop of course - then came Dumbledores study, Hagrid's hut and even more smaller items are shown such as the Golden Snitch, wands and Horcrux's. The amount of effort that goes into a tiny object is incredible. 

The forbidden forest (the newest feature of the tour) was like the rest... Amazing! With giant trees, smoke and a couple of surprises along the way. Then came one of the things I looked forward to the most! The Hogwarts express! After pushing my trolley through to platform 93/4 I grabbed a few photos and boarded the train to see how it evolved over the films. A quick stop at the railway shop for merchandise and then came to the cafe for a bite to eat and maybe even a butterbeer if you fancy! 

Outside were the bigger sets Privet Drive, the Knight Bus, Hogwarts Bridge and much more to look in awe at. Before the final stops of Diagon Alley and of course Hogwarts itself. As I walked through the doors the castle took my breath away, whilst the snow created even more magic and beauty. 

The tour was amazing and if you couldn't tell already I loved every moment and I would definitely recommend going especially if you love the magical world of Harry Potter as much as myself.

Festive Room Tour

Kicking off the festivities on my blog I thought I would share some photographs of the hints to the Christmas period that have graced my bedroom. I haven't gone too over the top this year with just the odd bits of tinsel, fairy lights and my lovely tree which may I say I am very very proud of. I put my decorations up on Sunday and it definitely got me in the spirit and in full Christmas mode!
