Hello Lovelies!

Been a little quiet on the blog side of things recently, as uni deadlines are looming... But I'm trying my best to keep on top of work and the old bloggio. After all, it is a nice escape from the books! Currently in love with this skirt from 'Glamorous' at ASOS. It provides me with just the right amount of festive cheer and bright colour on these dark days! 

It's nearly the most wonderful time of year again! The Starbucks red cups are out, the sparkling festive city lights are shining and all the Christmas adverts are bombarding our televisions... All clear signs that Christmas is well and truly on it's way. I'm especially excited this year because being the youngest of four children, (I'm 21) there have always been some siblings missing from Christmas day... But amazingly, this year we will all be together! Bring on the family squabbles, laughs and the games of Cluedo and Monopoly I'm going to make everyone play! 

Also HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who follows my blog. I recently surpassed the 1,000 follower mark and I can't even describe how much it means to me!! With constant support and lovely comments, you guys make this whole blog thing worthwhile and enjoyable, so thanks again...
 You guys are the best!! :)

More soon,

Helen

  1. This is by far one of the best tartan skirts I've seen. They often remind me of school skirts but this one is gorgeous!

  14. You look great in this skirt. I always love tartan. I'm already getting into the festive spirit and can't wait for the full on christmas season! We are having christmas at our house this year and my husband and I are cooking! Wish me look - I have a tiny family but I'm vegetarian and have never cooked a turkey and I'm going to have an 8 month baby bump! X
