Runaway with my socks

It's no surprise that during winter I want to keep my feet nice and warm, and normally I'll be putting on my usual black socks. But this year I have decided to spice it up a little with my new obsession for patterned socks!

My love started off because of a pair with my favourite food on, strawberries. This escalated to animals including my favourite animal, Koalas (which meant picking up every colour possible.)

Other patterns I have are Aztec, pandas, racoons, bikes, polar bears, foxes, bows, New York, etc.

Whether your just hanging around the house or want to make a statement, this is a must have for my winter essentials. My favourite place to wear these socks is during a duvet day or a night in at a friends where I can some these bad boys off.

What's your favourite winter essential?

OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) #6

To get myself in the festive mood I have started pulling out the christmas jumpers. My brother and I have been looking for christmas jumpers for the past 4 years and have had no luck, even turing to my nan for a hand knitted one. We had no luck until this year when I found a couple. One of which I wore today.

I found this jumper in Forever 21 for around £24, one unique part of this jumper is it's off the shoulder, and the christmas pattern is not too loud and wearable.

Trousers are also from Forever 21 for £21 which are high waisted and turned up around the ankles.

Early Christmas Present

So every year I get myself along with family and friends a Christmas present. Yes I have been told this is stupid but my thought is everyone should love themselves and love who they are, so what better way to show that than buying yourself a present.

My present can early this year as in the end of November. While shopping with my friends and wondering round the German market which I have to say is the biggest one outside Germany with 196 stalls, yes crazy! We headed over the the lovely piercing parlour we have where we had a piercing party. Something about piercings intrigues me so I was persuaded (very easily) to get my nose pierced.

Have such an obvious piercing I was a bit nervous about everyones reaction, especially at work due to the old fashion values everyone carries. It's been about a week since I have had it and after most people in my everyday life seeing it, it's finally been accepted.
