Winter Warmers

IMG_1883Although the snow didn’t hang around today, there was still a sharp nip in the air, so it was a great excuse to get those winter warmers out that I received for Christmas….I got about 4pairs of gloves….

IMG_1822…..and this newbie scarf, Accessorize £12.50 in the sale down from £30. Purchased with a giftcard, also a crimbo gift. Got to love the winter sales for those bargain winter warmers.

 

Casual Comfort


Today was the first day back to Uni after the christmas break…it’s exciting but at the same time, stressful. So what to wear!? I want comfort, as most of the day is going to be sitting down, but I’m also going to be on my feet, running here and there at times, so flats are a must.A big knitted jumper is a go to for me when I’m after comfort, this ones from H&M and was a pricey buy for me at £34.99 but I wear it a lot, so it’s worth it.IMG_1773

I invested in some brown leather Chelsea boots from Clarks, at £79.99 they were way over my usual expenditure, but I know they’re comfortable, and they’ll last. And I wear them all the time.   And the trousers were a steal in the Christmas sales, £9 from New Look, bargain. And because they’re a tartan pattern, they add a little something to the outfit.IMG_1772

Jazzy Jumper

A knitted jumper is perfect for this winter weather, be you in the city or the country.

jazzy jumps

 

This festive little number was snatched up from TK Maxx at £19.99. A jazzy knit is bang on trend at the moment, and can be dressed up for a Christmas shin-dig, or dressed down for a more casual cosy look.

A new christmas jumper is at the top of my christmas wish list this year, I’m just hoping I’ve been good enough…

D.I.Y Christmas Presents

Everyone’s struggling with money this Christmas, me being one of them. So I’ve decided to get creative, and baked my family and friends some yummy biscuits.

IMG_1545I picked these jars up from TK Maxx for £1.99 each, then dressed them with parcel paper, foil ribbon and glittery tags, all from Poundland.

IMG_1546The biscuit recipe is an easy peasy one from an old Delia Smith cookbook, butter, flour and sugar. I added some chocolate chips and cocoa powder to some of mine, just to mix things up. In all I spent about £25 on the whole lot. Christmas is covered. And everyone loves a good choccy biccy.

christmas scarfFor my godson, I wanted to do something a little more special but didn’t want to break the bank. So I’ve knitted him a simple little scarf, decorated with a snowman, complete with his own miniature scarf. So he’ll be toasty warm this winter, and hopefully it’ll be a present to last for years to come.

Cornwall’s Calling

I’m back in Cornwall for Christmas, so the practical attire  has come out to play, for muddy forest walks and sandy beach strolls.


plaid

Country style doesn’t have to be expensive, I picked up this green farmers jacket for £19.99 and the quilted plaid shirt was just £3.99 both from a local rejects store.

wellies

Not everyone can afford a pair of Hunters, I know I’d love a pair, but it’s just not in my budget. These wellies cost me £12 from Primark and I added the stickers on after for a little decoration, so they look the part but cost only a fraction of the real deal.
