Sorry love, you’re getting a christmas jumper!

Oh how we all laughed together with Bridget back in 2001 when we saw Mark Darcy’s christmas jumper which he wore only to please his mother.

Who would have thought that only a decade later, christmas jumpers are going to be considered really trendy and super cute! I wear mine all winter…8))

Here is an awesome selection of vintage and handmade festive knits – still plenty of time to shop online!

OMG more cat fashion!

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I love cats. A very lucky owner of a gorgeous feline friend, my cat Mickey rather likes  his bow ties when he feels like dressing up!

However it is NOT EASY to take photos of these little creatures.. They fiddle, they jump, they want to sniff your camera, they want treats!

I have recently discovered an amazing boutique on ETSY which not only stocks awesome handmade feline fashion, but the photography is beautiful! Check out these fun fun fun photos and buy a gift for your puss.

White Felt Beret

Dog 15-16in Twin Cherries tie and round collar

White point collar with flower interchangeable tie

Houndstooth sectioned Beret with Pompom for Cat

Lace edge Baby collar for cat, choose green&white, all white, or red and white

Onesies – would you?

I must say I have always been a fan. You know, when you are sick, but not sick enough to be in bed.. just what are you going to wear to keep warm? A onesie with rabbit ears to cheer you up! When you want to do some yoga on Sunday morning but its soo cold you can barely move: onesie will keep your back warm in downward dog. A cute one, a funny one, a ridiculous one  or even a sexy one – take your pick and snuggle up!

Where do I want to be tomorrow instead of work and what would I be wearing (part 6)

For once I actually think I would like to be somewhere in the mountains, skiing. I love it, to be so high up, so close to the sky. The crisp air, the sharp sunshine and lots of sparkling snow –  the fun way to do winter. I always chose a beach holiday over mountains though so I have not been skiing for years..but this is a little fantasy, so tomorrow I’d love to rock the slopes and I have already found my perfect outfit on Etsy.com. So let’s live it up just like in Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ video!!! And don’t forget to bring your flask with hot toddy ;o)
