I got a random email from the peeps over at Brainbox Candy on Sunday, turns out they had read my blog and saw that I loved their cards. The fabulous Mark/Barbara/Mungo asked me to pick a few cards from their range and I received them yesterday afternoon, how lovely! Here are my picks...

....I love this wrapping paper! Go on over to their site and have a look see, there is free shipping at the moment too!

After stumbling across Blythe Hill's wonderful blog and reading her post about Dressember yesterday I decided that it sounded like a great idea, especially as I started this blog to try and stop myself throwing on my jeans and tee combos all the time, so I signed myself up.

The rules of Dressember are simple: wear dresses all month (with the exceptions of pajamas, work out clothes, and when your job requires you to wear pants). You're allowed to repeat dresses. You're not allowed to wear skirts.

I own a lot of dresses (I've just counted I own fifty seven (!!!!) and I'm making myself another one!) I even have a few dresses in my wardrobe (five in fact) that have never seen the light of day so I will have plenty to chose from. I'm going to attempt to wear a different dress every day and not buy any new dresses during December, considering how many I have and as a lot of those are party dresses I shouldn't be too stumped during party season and I will allow myself to borrow dresses from my lovely friends (if they'll let me)!

Sounds simple enough here goes nothing....

Dress: H&M via eBay
Belt: Accessorize
Tights: Topshop
Boots: Office
Earrings: Accessorize

I have many layers on underneath this dress to keep me warm and I plan on putting on a few more layers for the walk down to work. Tonight we are hosting the OK Christmas party (!) and I am the hostess, I shall be ticking people of the list whilst wearing a white catsuit, white floor length coat and lots of sparkly jewellery. Hopefully I won't freeze and I'll try and get a picture for tomorrows post.

Lots of Love

P.S. x


  1. Perfect dress! looks so good on you and you styled it perfectly. You have perfect hair as well)

    But are the skirts not allowed? I thought they are.. I think theres something about it on the Fbook page. But we are allowed to change rules))

    Good luck with the challenge!
    And I'm waiting to see the catsuit+coat photo))
