I went to Kaycie’s with the outfit from my christmas jumper outfit post on, and asked her kindly if she could match my ensemble. I think she has done a spectacular job. She used shellac polish for all the designs apart from the red and pink glitter acrylic on a few fingers. She used a red, pink, white and black shellac and used a fine brush to paint all of the details. Featuring a mixture of snowflakes, miniature hearts, snow, present ribbons, baubles, and christmas jumper pattern. I absolutely love the complete design, it matches my new jumper perfectly!
Good evening lovelies! Ohhhh it is feeling verrrrry festive up in herre!! Sorry about all the CUTE!!! I have wanted to get the dogs some festive outfits but there were so many that I liked and I couldn’t decide what to go for. When I saw Doug & Bone (prepared for your heart to melt when you see the photos on their website!!) retweet a pic of Puggy looking all cosy in blankets, I was straight on their site to browse their christmas jumper range. They have some gorgeous stuff for the pooch in your life. Doug & Bone were kind enough to send Puggy and Logan their very own Christmas jumpers to try out and boy are they cute!!!
Puggy received three cute little knitted jumpers, a red and white one with snowflakes on, a grey nordic inspired knit with a reindeer on and a comedy rudolph knit. They are a very good fit, and feel really good quality and they are very soft. It was Logan’s gilet that I was most impressed with, the Winter Berries jacket is SO soft. Made from a fleece fabric, it actually could be something that was made for a human, I can’t quite get in to it or I would wear it! It is a tad on the small size, but then Logan is a HUGE dog. It fits, it is just a little short in the body, but it does up and he look’s totally down with the kids man!
I even had to go out and find myself a jumper to match the dogs standard, I couldn’t be up staged by them could I!? I hunted around Primark yesterday, having seen a few Christmas jumpers on some haul videos. I liked the light up ones but I couldn’t find the right colour, with the right pattern. I really wanted a nordic pattern one, rather than a “tacky” jumper, and I didn’t want to settle for any old jumper. I kept on looking, I wasn’t very impressed with Selects range either. Then I went to H&M and their jumpers were all £15 and I spotted a red and pink one which I was instantly sold on. It had the right pattern, the right size, the right length and I had to have it.
I also teamed it with my perfectly matching Crown & Glory Christmas flower crown. I absolutely love it, it has barely left my head since I opened my Glitterati box! And of course, my feet wouldn’t be with out my Dr Marten’s Aimilitas on a good dog walk!

Good Morning! Have you had a good weekend? I have had a lovely weekend, but now I am sick and seriously struggling through this morning. I am powering through as I have so much to do today, so I am stocking up on caffeine (no christmas pun intended!). I feel like I haven’t stopped since Thursday lunch. I spent Thursday afternoon in the car on route to London for a double consecutive photo booth booking. I went straight to London Zoo to set up for the Christmas party in the Mappin Pavilion at the Zoo for the evening, before heading to my friend, Hatty’s, after to crash on her sofa for the night. I couldn’t leave the house on Friday as Hatty couldn’t leave me her keys when she went to work, so I was locked in her house for the day until I had to go back to London Zoo for the second Christmas party in as many days. Both Christmas parties with the Photo Booth went brilliantly and were really popular (you can see the photos here!) and then I had a late night drive back on Friday night. You can watch day four and five of Vlogmas nelow…

After being away for 2 days, I came back to Brad at the peak of his man-flu, and Jamie the lodger being drunk sick in the toilet (what a welcome home!). Brad was totally bunged up and had to go out to the 24hr shop to get some sudafed to clear his sinuses. So whilst the house was awake anyway, I edited the photos from the night and it was 3am before we got to bed. Clearly burning the candle at both hands and being to close the the sick boy, I have caught it! Boo!
It was totally forgotten about when Fenner and Rob turned up Saturday lunch time. I was so excited to have my best friend to stay so close to Christmas and looking forward to spending the weekend making merry. We took a walk down to Banco Lounge and spent the afternoon drinking mulled cider (with a shot of rum) and eating yummy food. I was so silly and totally forgot to take my camera, which I was gutted about because it was SOOOOOO festive in Banco lounge and would have made for such a great little video, so I am going to have to go back and drink more mulled cider (what a shame!) to show you how lovely it is down there.
We did our usual Sunday activities, walking up at Leigh Woods, with the dogs. We stopped at the cottage on the way home for (the best) onion rings and a pint before we had to say good by to our guests. By that point yesterday I was feel super ill, and tiered so I had a nap on the sofa to re coup a little. I was so tempted to stay in the warm, but we had planned to go and see the fireworks at Clifton Suspension bridge for it’s 150th anniversary. I crawled off the sofa and put on my fur coat, my scarf and hat and wrapped up warm and headed (back) to the cottage on the Harbour to get our seat for the firework display. We even took blankets and a beer to keep us warm. It was such an amazing display, we were so impressed and so glad we went to see it. There will be more Vlogmas videos coming soon.
This week I have been partaking in Vlogmas all week, and it has been the first successful week of Vlogging every day, wuhoo go me! For those of you that perhaps haven’t noticed my Youtube channel yet (if not, why not!!? lol) I make all kinds of videos, general haul videos (because I am a shopaholic) I love filming any event that I go to, and every now and then I commit to a Vlog series. These vids are a mixture of “day in the life” type videos and mini compilation videos. If you would like to keep up to date with my new videos, you can hit the subscribe button in my side bar over there ——————————> Here’s a taster of this weeks videos!
