Christmas Starts Here…….

It’s time to take some action.

For some reason this year I haven’t felt that festive thrill just yet. Now, you might not think that weird, seeing as it’s only November. However, I’m normally a person who starts feeling festive somewhere around late October, and it’s only a sense of social appropriateness that stops me spending 20 per cent of the year wearing Christmas tree baubles as earrings and eating mince pies for breakfast.

I like it, it makes the dull and dreary days post Halloween so much more exciting to have something to look forward to.

So today I am taking some festive action to try and kick start my Christmas Spirit.

First up, the Christmas Jumper.

This particular jumper was sent to me by New Look who asked me to share photos of me in embarrassing Christmas jumpers from my youth. However I think this “everyone in the 80s wore Christmas jumpers” thing is a big fat lie, either that or I had a particularly classy childhood, because I never had a Christmas jumper till I was a grown up. I’m certainly making up for this deprivation now though by obtaining as many items of tacky Christmas clothing as I can. Expect to see Christmas Midi dresses, Christmas T Shirts and yet more Christmas jumpers coming up over the festive season.

In this photo I am wearing my Christmas jumper in the glamorous surroundings of the car park of my local Tesco, where I went to obtain lunch, and Christmas cupcakes.

Oooh, tell me more……..

Oh No! Not More Cocktails!

lasiguanasnorwich I’m so sorry, I know I promised you no more Cocktails. But these ones were FREE, which is the best kind of cocktail, and they came with dinner thrown in too and it is an actual rule in my life never to turn down a free cocktail. Really On Saturday, after that long drive back […] Oooh, tell me more........

A Trip Up North

FEATURE OX PASTURE Last week was my Wedding Anniversary. I say “my”, it was of course “our” as without Mr Chick there would have been no wedding, but that looked weird when I wrote it as an opening line as normally this blog is about ME ME ME, of course. Well, each year Mr Chick and I take […] Oooh, tell me more........

Being Blonde: Products for Blonde Hair

feature I kind of went blonde gradually. But even taking that into account I’ve had very light blonde bleached hair now for for nearly 2 years, apart from a few forays into pastels and my recent vibrant pinks and purples. My hair is naturally a dark muddy blonde and I colour my hair myself at home […] Oooh, tell me more........

Why Are You Here?

3025806074_f5e790a908_o Apparently blogs are dead, and no one wants to read them anymore. So why are you here? Back at the end of October I read this article on IFB about the death of Fashion Blogging based on some information from a BlogHer survey, and I thought “hey, I should write about that”, but then I […] Oooh, tell me more........
