I love nothing more than getting cosy with a hot chocolate and bowl of popcorn watching my fave Christmas films.

When people ask me what the best festive film is, I always struggle because I love so many of them…

BUT..

I have actually managed to create my top 5 festive films for you guys (after much thought)… So if your stuck for Christmas inspiration, I highly recommend this lovely lot…

main

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

The Favourite.

I can watch this film over and over and over again and not get bored. If you love Chevy Chase then this is the film for you. It is so funny and i’m pretty sure all families can relate to the antics of the run up to Christmas…

Home Alone: Lost in New York

Out of all the Home Alone movies, this is my fave.

There is something so magical about New York at Christmas and I know i’m not the only one when I say how much I wanted to stay at the Plaza Hotel..

Again, I could watch it over and over and Harry and Marv absolutely make this film, such great actors.

Christmas with the Kranks

Who doesn’t like Tim Allen?

I can really relate to this film as my mother loves Christmas festivities as much as Jamie Lee Curtis and will do EVERYTHING to try and make it perfect on the day… despite any accidents along the way.

The Santa Clause

Another one with my guy Tim Allen, they really don’t make films like this anymore…

I thought the sets and props in this film were so incredible (again I wanted to live in the North Pole)…

If your looking for a truly magical movie, then this is my pick, it really puts me in the festive mood.

The Holiday

Lastly, a romantic choice.

This is such a relaxing film and shows how Christmas is full of love and joy.

And how cool would it be to actually house swap with someone? Ummm…. VERY COOL, sign me up.

WE HAVE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

We have been living in our first home together for three weeks now and I am finally settled in.

I don’t think I realised how much I actually missed blogging until I sat down to type and write this post. It’s sad that I have missed out on a lot in the past few months but..

I AM BACK and ready to continue my blogging journey.

I wanted to share some of the first photos of our new home with you guys as I have been very much inspired by the blogging community, social media and Pinterest for ideas.

Our garden overlooks the beautiful fields where I grew up. I couldn’t ask for a better view to wake up to!

Were feeling very festive at the moment in our living room. Our tree is a 7ft spruce from Tesco and our Garland is from Buyology. It is so cosy in here, especially when the fire is lit.

Our bedroom needed a neutral and calm theme so we opted for cream and grey with pops of colour.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and I love it. We chose to add hints of copper in our accessories with my favourite being the clock from Dunelm. It matches perfectly with our coffee and sugar pots from Next.

Our dining room had a feature wall with the colour Meteor dust, a grey blue shade. Our side board is from Tesco and our table and chairs are from Ikea

Isn’t this the most adorable garland? My sister bought it for us along with a few other delights…

Our first decoration given to us, again from my sister for our new home.

Our bathroom is simple but classic, we went for a white and beige theme in here, very neutral.

So as you can imagine, alongside working full time etc, it has been pretty hectic these past months but its good to be back!

What I’m going to wear to Cheltenham Races Ladies Day on 11th March – #Colourmemarch

Uncategorized

As we know, Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait. 

There is nothing quite like the variety of colours that Springtime produces, it is breathtaking!

I previously did a post about outfit inspiration for Cheltenham Ladies Day – #colourmemarch. I chose several pieces from various clothing stores online and put them together for some colourful inspiration!

So today, I had a good look in my wardrobe for all things bright and beautiful…. and colourful! I put together a few bright outfits that I think would look great for the #colourrmemarch event on the 11th of March, and narrowed it down to my final choice! Here’s my entry for their Great competition #ColourMeMarch.

Blue is one of my favourite colours.

The range of blue shades and tones is almost endless and I love how sophisticated it can look, dressed up or down.

My royal blue knee length dress is from the gorgeous brand, Paper Dolls, Check it out on the Little Mistress website.

This dress fits me like a dream. It is super comfortable with a thick and figure hugging fabric with appliqued lace running down the sides. I find that on the knee dresses are extremely flattering and feminine and are my favourite style of dress to wear on special occasions!

My silver, white and black jewelled clutch is from Primark that my lovely mother bought for me last year. I adore this bag as it makes any outfit look instantly glamorous. It reflects the light creating and casting a ray of different colours in the sunshine!

My detailed navy blue heels are from Marks and Spencers  and look so elegant with this outfit. I find that shoes with open toes elongate the legs making them appear longer! Perfect for my 5ft 4 height! They are also so comfortable and easy to walk in – I would not have to cling on to my boyfriend the whole day with this comfy pair!

As you can see, I have two piercings in my lobes so I took full advantage of this and chose these gorgeous blue and purple jewelled earrings from Accessorize. Again, I love how they glisten in the sunlight creating gorgeous deep colours that compliment the rest of my outfit. I chose pearls as my second choice as they suit all outfits and add a sense of sophistication that definitely suits the occasion!

To match the lace on my dress, I chose nude nailsWho doesn’t love a nude nail?! Oval nail shapes are also so feminine looking and are so easy to do! It matches any colour and compliments any skin tone! 

I think this outfit would look so elegant at Cheltenham Ladies day, adding another ray of colour to the rainbow of outfits!
