TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY

..Isn’t it?! So BE jolly kids or santa will bring you nothing but a sack of coal.

Don’t laugh (or judge), I have lost count of the number of Father Christmas threats I have used already this month..  

 I adore Christmas. I actually love the whole of December. Despite being Jewish, I get so swept up in the magic of it. The mulled wine (drunk copiously because it’s hot and therefore not alcoholic), stollen, festive shop windows, nativities and tinny Christmas tunes everywhere you go. Love. it.all.

WINTER WARMERS

It’s cold. Officially cold. We’re waking up in the dark and there’s a bite in the air that calls for coats and boots and lots of lovely knits. This is my favourite time of the year to be outside and it’s my favourite time of the year for clothes, big and small.  Continue reading
