Christmas Eve

Welcome to my quick Christmas eve post. I’ve decided to post on christmas day because you can get a little bored watching endless christmas tv, I know I do. So while I watch tv and have some free time while my parents go get more of my family,  I’d share with you some Christmas moments. DSCN1175 DSCN1177 DSCN1178 DSCN1181

It’s really save to say that this Christmas we went all out for the table. We lit the scene with a fairy light clad white tree adorned with Swarovski snowflakes; my dad buys my mum their new snowflake every year, as a little tradition, icicles and pearl beads. ( we know it’s crazy, but it’s Christmas)

There was no need for ice-breakers but lets be honest we love to play around and have a laugh.DSCN1187 DSCN1176 DSCN1184 DSCN1191 DSCN1183

we rounded up the day with a little (very competitive) game of Cranium. Ofcourse my team won!!

I hope you enjoyed this little look at how we spent out Christmas eve/Christmas day.

Checked Dress at Star Wars

This is what I wore to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. i don’t really have any thoughts about it yet, I enjoyed the film and didn’t once think ‘ this is one long film’. So I guess I liked it and am glad I went. I’m not a film critic, so I’ll leave it there.

I’ve finally taught myself how to curl my hair ( ‘but you  hair is curly’ i hear you cry) When I try to curl my hair no matter that I try the curls never stay in, until now. I’ve found a way for me to have defined curls and have them last, it’s only taken me 21 years!

I wore

jacket –Baum und Pferdgarten

dress –Zara

boots –Topshop

lipstick – Rimmel Kate Moss

Decorating for Christmas

Every year at Christmas time mum and I set about decorating the house, we both love colour so can’t really get away with having a white christmas tree or a minimalist look. DSC_7174 DSC_7180 DSC_7179 DSC_7185 DSC_7186

I love this little Disney macaroon I gave to my mum back in summer when I want to Paris for a few days. DSC_7181 DSC_7190 DSC_7188

The Christmas Advent calendar is my favourite Christmas decoration on the whole house! I don’t remember us not having it at Christmas. My brother and I used to come down every morning and open the new and and stick it on the tree. DSC_7193 DSC_7194

Of course we had to decorate the hallway, adding lights, glittery fabric and baubles to the banisters making it look like a winter wonderland.

hope you enjoyed looking around my house this Christmas and have a little nosy at how we have decorated this year. Thank you for reading!

Lots of love Amelia XO.

Festive Party

Christmas is the perfect time to see all your friends and with the last week of college 2015 coming to a close it was only right to have a few friends over for a little celebration. As you can see I love a party. I think the hat and tie really set my outfit off 😉

Summer in Winter

DSCN1054 DSCN1055 DSCN1056 DSCN1057 DSCN1058 DSCN1061 DSCN1063 DSCN1066 DSCN1069 DSCN1072

I’ve been wanting to wear these trousers all through autumn and into winter, but never found the perfect way to stay warm and still look good. I think I’ve found it, flowing layers, and knits.

Pairing this long cardigan with these trousers was such a happy accident. The cardigan is super light weight yet I didn’t feel cold taking photos in the wind ( see all photos above of me not managing the wind) Ofcourse I had to glam it up a little with some rose lips and patent nude heels.

I wore

cardigan –  ( almost identical here)

trousers – Dorothy Perkins

heels – New Look – (old but love these)

bag – TK-Maxx

rings – Volcano

necklace – Topshop

You don’t have to put away your summer clothes, just integrate them into your winter wardrobe.

Bournemouth Gardens of Light

DSCN1051It’s become a tradition for me and Stacey to head over to Sprinkles in Landsdowne for a little girlie chin wag. After my usual choice of a scoop of mint and pistatio, we walked into Bournemouth centre. We were greeted by the most glorious winter light display.12346327_10207204806811250_1104156288411298163_n 12346571_10207204806571244_983060113885261766_n

Aren’t these Snapchat photos just a testament to how serious our conversations are? What can I say, ice cream is my everything.

DSCN1042 DSCN1040

As you walk through the main path in the gardens your way is lit by giant snowflakes.DSCN1053

Every now and again you’d walk up upon lit door frames. If I wasn’t so chicken and super aware of all the people around I would have jumped at the chance to stand inside the doorframe and posed to my hearts content (next time) we walked over to the out door bar, but it was rammed to the rafters so moved on.

I can’t wait to go back for anything exploration and adventure, maybe I’ll even try my hand at the ice skating, maybe?

Winter Party Nights

DSCN1028 DSCN1029 DSCN1036 DSCN1038 DSCN1039

I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.

I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac  non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.

I WORE

Kimono – love this

Dress – Similar (and in the sale)

Shoes – New Look Similar

Earrings – H&M // necklace – Accessorize ( love, love)

Lipstick – Topshop in motel

Hope everyone is loving that party season and thanks for reading, Amelia XO

DSCN1016 DSCN1019 DSCN1022

This winter I think I’m the busiest I’ve even been with work, college and parties all over December. One of my favourite looks to meet the girlies in is this little skirt and these boots. I’ve mentioned these boots a while ago and I can’t stop loving them. But favourite part of this outfit is definitely this Oasis sparkly top, I love the cowl neck back and the bar across the back. it’s such a great Christmas piece that I’ve been longing to wear. I bought the shirt at last years Clothes Show live ( I’m going to this years Clothes Show!) You could  wear this Christmas day and eat everything on the table and still look great.

I WORE

Shirt – Oasis/ Skirt – Oasis/ Boots – Primark/ Cardigan – Tu/ Earrings – John Lewis/ Bracelets – H&M/ Lipstick – No7 Classic Rose/ Bag – L.Credi/ Necklace – Kate Spade

Hope that you have a great evening, love Amelia XO

The Winter Cape

DSCN0987

This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works. DSCN0988 DSCN0989 DSCN0990 DSCN0991 DSCN0992
