I hope all of you have had a very merry christmas with your family and friends! Being back in Luxembourg has been great. I have not met up with friends that much but I have spent loads of time with my family and the Manfriend. I have a little "what I got for Christmas" post for you so I hope you do not take this in the wrong way and think I am bragging/showing off the things I received this year. Click the Read more button at the end of this post to see the rest!

My Christmas celebrations started with Italian feast on the 24 December with the Manfriend and the 20+ members of his famiglia. It was insane! There was so much food and conversations flying about all over the place... I stuck with his cousin girlfriend a lot of the time because it was the first Christmas with the boyfriend for both of us. Midnight came around and this year it was the Manfriend's turn to be Babbo Natale (Father Christmas). We did not get back to my place until after 4am but we had such a good night.

The next day the Christmas festivities continued with my family's tradition of opening the gifts that Santa left by our beds. As old as I get, I still love this tradition because it not only reminds me of all the Christmases I have had growing up but it gets me excited for the day! The Manfriend and I then watched the first two Home Alone movies. Helping my mum with the turkey prep (and the rest of the dinner) is another one of my favourite parts of the day. It makes me feel like I will be capable of cooking my future family a decent Christmas dinner! All in all, I had an amazing couple of days and I hope you have had an amazing Christmas too. I love you all.

I flew back to Luxembourg on Monday and since then I have been simply enjoying being home. I was in Trier today to do some Christmas shopping and oh my gosh I just love popping over the border (it only takes 45mins to get there) because Germany is just so much more Christmas-y. They really go all out with the decorations. I wore my new coat from Zara which I believe you have not seen before! It is so much longer than my other coats but it keeps me so so so warm which I absolutely love.

Well hello, it has been a while has it not? I have been in such a funk lately and I unfortunately let it affect my blogging which I am sorry about. I bought these shoes a while back and I am so in love with them. I have always wanted a pair of leopard print shoes but printed flats were not really my thing. Even further back, I had wondered into Primark and bought the black version of these boots because they were only £8. I sometimes felt my docs were too chunky for certain outfits and converse was just too casual so I was really glad to have this new and cheap addition to my famiglia of shoes. Imagine my excitement when I saw these leopard print ones for the same price. Do you guys ever experience that flutter when you randomly spot that item which just seems to gleam at your from the other side of the store? It seems a bit silly to be so passionate about a pair of £8 shoes but that basically sums up how I felt. For someone who loves black, this is definitely a great way to add a bit of "spark" to your outfit!


Hey guys, sorry for the major absence! I have been doing loads lately and I'm really not made for the cold so the majority of the time you can find me hibernating in my PJs or wrapped up like a chubby kid in 53456786543 layers of clothing. I do have decent boots to wear but not enough fluffy warm socks so that is definitely on my list for when I go shopping with my flatmate on Wednesday.

I also wanted to show these earrings which I am almost sure I have never shown you guys before. My best Danish buddy got them for me from Denmark (duhh...) and they kinda remind of some kind of badass gunmetal origami!
