I hope that you have had a lovely Christmas!
I definitely feel realy spoilt this year. Not only did I receive lots of lovely pressies from family and friends but I was also invited to Christmas lunch at my mother and fathers in laws. This meant that instead of spending all day in the kitchen cooking, I got time to play with the children and spend Christmas eve cuddled up on the sofa with a glass of bucks fizz and a pile of children and a cat watching a Santa Claws (a laughably bad Christmas film). As I was working on Christmas eve it really took the pressure off not to have to worry about shopping and food prep. We even managed to get out for a walk on Christmas morning before lunch.
My family know that I am just a little bit fussy when it comes to clothes so always ask for present ideas in advance. This means I usually get lovely pressies made by ethical brands that I know I will get lots of wear from. Mr S treated me to this embroidered boho dress from Nomads clothing , a white gold bangle (which was a lovely surprise) and some eco make up brushes. My mum and dad got me the organic cotton dress that I am wearing above from EKO, a sustainable fashion brand based in Cornwall. The clothes are lovely and comfortable to wear, making the dress perfect for Christmas day when I knew I was likely to be eating more turkey, pudding and chocs than I really should. I am planning to wear it again for New Years eve.
I also got this pair of supremely comfortable trousers from Outsider Fashion. They are ethically made from eco Tencel and organic merino wool. I can’t wait to wear them on New Years Day for a great big brunch with the family to welcome in the new year followed a nice long walk before snuggling up to watch a film of two.
I have had a lovely relaxing break and had the opportunity to spend some lovely time with family and friends. I am really looking forward to New Year and the last few days of my break before its back to work.
How have you spent Christmas this year and do you have anything fun planned for New Years Eve?
I will finish up by sharing a few of my Christmas instagrams.
A very naughty cat climbing in the Christmas tree!
A gingerbread house made by the children.
Hot chocolate – one of my favourite things about this time of year.
I have to admit to being just a little bit geeky about reading the labels on clothes.
With warmest wishes
