A festive day out & a catchup

19 December 2016


It has taken me a while to get myself back into the swing of things here on the blog, but after my blog transformation, I'm feeling rather inspired/motivated to be back here. I wanted to try do 'blogmas' this year but honestly, I've had so much going on the last month or so I feel like the content would've been awful, plus working full time and trying to even find the time to blog is difficult. On that note, I'm here today after spending the last 4 and a half hours spring cleaning and rearranging my bedroom/office area, I'm feeling very content. With Christmas just a few more days away (can you believe it?) it's always a good idea to clean and organise your space, not only does this take away some of the Christmas stress, but also makes space for more new things!


A few days ago myself, my sister, my mother and my nephew took a trip to our local garden centre to have a look around. There is nothing more festive that a garden centre; with all the real Christmas trees and the decorations. If you have never been to a garden centre near Christmas I fully recommend that you do. It has become a mini tradition in my household to go there near Christmas time and you just get such a sense of the 'magic of Christmas' and you forget you're in your twenty's and you get taken back to a time when Christmas was the most wonderful time of the year and you was excited to see Santa.


There is nothing I enjoy more than looking at decorations. Decorating the house for Christmas is my favourite thing to do. We always go with red and gold colour scheme in our house and tinsel is banned! Does anybody else's mum have a real pet hate for tinsel or 'tacky' Christmas decor? If i had enough room in my house to have a giant Christmas tree I really would, I just love them so much and I adore how comforting it makes a room feel.
Of course being in a garden centre on a quite afternoon, I had to get in some outfit shots...



I've hunted high and low for the online links for my outfit, but all I can find is my jeans. The boots and the gilet are actually from last year, the gilet is from New Look and the boots are from Brantano. I love how comfortable and wintry I felt in this outfit, If my hair was down I would have paired this outfit with a black woolly hat..


I actually have some time off for Christmas now and I go back to work on the 27th December, I'm going to try my hardest to get some more posts up this week and there will be blog posts up on Christmas!

What are your Christmas plans this week? Are you doing anything festive?

Always,

Kimberley xx

  4. Your decorations at home sound lovely -- I've got nothing against tinsel personally, but red and gold are so warm and inviting! I really love your outfit, especially with that fur stole! (I assume that's the gilet? I've actually never heard that word before, which is rad. I love learning new words!)
