Embroidered Jumper

 Last year the sales weren’t for me, i didn’t find a single thing. But this year  The sales this year have been great this year, it hit me a little hard, but it was worth it.

Behold the mesh embroidered jumper of my dreams, and probably yours now. Worn with blue skinny jeans and my trusty long denim jacket.

This jumper would look great over a tight black dress for new years eve.

Christmas Tree and Table 16

I traveled home from university to send some time with my family over the Christmas holiday. I’ve really missed them while I’ve been at uni and haven’t really felt the Christmas  spirit, that all changed with this beauty of a tree. Mum really out did herself this year. Normally we have a very clean looking tree with only matching baubles but this time was different we had butterflies, ribbons, crystal snowflakes, Disney macaroons and even a few ballerinas.

I sent my boyfriend off to work this morning, and have had a very low key Christmas without him. The rest of us had our dinner cooked by my dad. Mum, Grandma and myself washed everything up after. This year we went for a purple and white table decorations. Did you see last years post about our Christmas table here?

Crystals even made it onto the table, the best cranberry sauce I’ve even eaten was there too. Tesco finest with lingonberry, it’s super rich and full of flavour.

The red cabbage matched the place mats ! How perfect for a little flat lay. Dad per request made brussels with bacon and bread crumbs because that’s the only way I like them.

Then we lazed around in the lounge opening presents and listening to Christmas tunes.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas day or what ever you decided to celebrate or not. I’m looking forward to bringing you a few other posts I have up my sleeve before the new year so stay tuned.

Luminate Southampton and Thaikhun

I met up with two girls from my class for a little ‘not quite’ Christmas lunch. I ended up in the new Watermark building in Southampton. Not everything is open yet so we went for something new, Thaikhun which is an awesome  Thai street food place, with the nicest staff and the tastiest food. We went for a bucket of  Full Moon cocktail.

The inside is bright and rustic with a clear view of the kitchen, wooden floors and walls created smaller eating areas for a cozy dining experience.

My Ka Nom Jeeb Moo & Gong (prawn and pork Dumplings) add the chilli sauce that is on your table, you won’t be disappointed.

Poppy went for the Por Pia Tord pak ( veg spring rolls)

Amy had the Goong Choop Pang Tord ( Tempura prawns)

We devoured our starters wanting to share but not being able to because of the veggie. We moved onto the main course.

I had the chicken and cashew curry with jasmine rice. The right amount of spice blended with the creamy nuts and sweet veg.

I think is the chicken with pepper and garlic.

Poppy went for the red Thai curry with tofu. She did find too spicy, but they were more then happy to make her a lighter version.

We chatted and laughed before getting the bill and heading into the night.

As we walked back along the wall we were greeted with a crescendo that made us jump as high as our full stomachs would allow. The Wall in southampton was ablaze. Images danced across the stones depicting the birth and rise of Southampton.

Thank you for reading.

Thank you Poppy and Amy for being the kindest and funniest girls i know, and for accepting that I will want to take photos of the food you are about to eat. See you in 2017

Winter Ball

The Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce hosted a Winter Wonderland Ball. My parents have been to a few balls but this year i wanted to go, so we booked a table and started hunting for dresses.

The Winter Wonderland Ball was held at the Cumberland Hotel – Bournemouth

Vintage jacket in Athelhampton

dsc_0004-001

Around Christmas time Dorset comes to life with fairs and events all over the county. Dorset Food and Drink came to Athelhampton House. We wandered the tents looking for Dorsetshire foods and drinks. All the stall holders were locals showing off their craftsmanship. We ate artisan marshmallows, sausage rolls, sampled some alcohol. We tried a “chimney cake” or Kürtőskalács, it was so delicious.

After fuelling up we headed into the gardens to explore.

The comfiest outfits are sometimes the best ones. This shirt and jumper combo is so A/W 16 granny chic without the glasses and cat slippers. Also cropped jeans are going to be in my wardrobe forever. The little bit of ankle showing ands a much needed detail to this look.

Plaid Shirt in Perranporth

dsc_0189

I’ve been on a little Cornish get away with the boy, we stopped in Perranporth for a little look at the beach and the shops. Perranporth is my second favourite beach in the whole world. Last time I was here was in the summer but there is something much more beautiful about a moody winter beach.

It looks like I live in this Long Tall Sally coat, but it’s just the warmest thing I took with me to Cornwall. I’ve been obsessed with with this plaid shirt from Zara it’s so oversized and baggy which suites my student lifestyle to a T. I’ve been wearing it with my trusty cropped jeans and my Ziggy boots from Primark. ( couldn’t wear fancy boots on the sand)

Also I dyed my hair, I’ve been wanting to get rid of my orange ends for a while and not having a spare moment to go to a salon I did it myself in my en suite. I just dyed over my orange with the Loreal Viking dye and i have this much more muted easier on the eye look.
