Joggers: Topshop, Top: ZARA, Sandals: New Look, Lips: No7 Mulberry

I've been after a pair of trousers recently that would really set my wardrobe on fire and these leather joggers are certainly there.
They're smooth and sexy and boy do they feel good. If you've read my blog before you'll probably notice that these are really my style, but I feel a whole new me coming on and this is the item to get the ball rolling.
Along with the cosiness of these joggers, I wanted a relaxed but (hopefully perceived) edgy approach to wearing them. I constantly drool over the outfits Aimee Song puts together with her detailed and extravagant heels and casually cool trousers, so thought I'll give it a go! Despite being a little cold, I threw on a leather jacket and finished my Christmas shopping.
It's amazing how clothes can make you feel but hey, I think I'm getting there!



My life according to instagram.
Finally up to date! A small idea of what I've been up to the latter part of this year. Although not as much as I'd hoped, the new year is dawning and I feel there's some changes to come with the rise of the sun.

A brave 30 minutes with my pins out today. The short time was due to the fact I was being an optimistic IDIOT and thought with a heavily layered top half I'd still be warm. Can't fault me for trying, I am English after all.
Today was the first of 5 days off for me. I woke up and didn't really know what to do with myself. In the end I did some chores, got some Christmas decorations together and then met a friend for a cosy pub lunch.
Isn't it funny how we long for our days off but when they arrive we are stuck for things to do (well, people to do them with) or the slowing down actually has us lacking motivation to socialise?

For me, December is the time to reflect on the year that has passed and to think of the year to come. I think my (first) New Years Resolution will be to really make every moment count. None of this sitting around twiddling my thumbs business. Being proactive and spontaneous is what life is all about!
If all else fails though, I can always fill my days with shopping right?

Christmas is THE best time of year and no matter how old I'll get, seeing presents under the tree will always get me giddy and excited.
Most of the time we tear our hair out thinking about what gifts to buy others so I plucked a few of my 2013 favs to hopefully give you a little more inspiration if you're struggling for ideas.
It is always the thought that counts and no matter who you're buying for whether easy or picky, there is always something for someone.
Some of these are great for stocking fillers or for the Secret Santa you weren't prepared for. Never the less they're great girlie gifts and mostly inexpensive.

The makeup bag and Olivia Burton watch are my favs....what are yours?
