Find Your Sparkle

     It's the most wonderful time of the year... I hope you all read that in a sing-song manner! Yes, Christmas is upon us, a time of merriment and joy and love, of family and friends and gifts, of delicious food and festive decorations. Christmas may mean something slightly different to everyone, but there's little escaping its presence. Edinburgh now is a mass of sparkling lights, bringing a festive atmosphere to the city. Everywhere you look, there is something sparkling, twinkling, glimmering, or shining.

Life Update | 2017

     Ok, let's start off with a very, very brief recap of the last couple years. Graduated university in 2015, moved to Hong Kong for a year, moved to South Korea, didn't enjoy it and moved back to Hong Kong, travelled for 2 months, moved back to the UK. Everyone keep up with that? Good. Now, the moving back to the UK thing happened over 2 months ago, so, what have I been doing since then, I hear you cry? Well, actually no, I don't hear you cry, but I'm going to pretend people might be interested in my life, for my ego's sake!

Outfit - True Blue

     Does anyone else think this counts as a festive jumper, or just me? Firstly, warm, snuggly jumpers are a must at this time of year anyway, but I think it's the sparkly threads running through this one that make it feel a little more festive to me. I've gone monochrome here too, pairing the blue jumper and dress, in slightly different shades - not my usual thing, normally I mix and match my colours a bit more but it's always interesting to try different combinations. I like the jumper-over-dress combo too, as it's so easy to just throw on a couple of items, and not worry about finding a top to match the rest etc. I've kept the jewellery simple too, with just a pair of earrings, in yet another blue-ish shade - these are one of the beaded pairs my homestay mother handmade and sold to me while I was in Guatemala a few years ago!
