As we wave goodbye to 2011, here's a look a what I got up to in December:

2nd December- Celebrated my 22nd birthday!
14th December- Got this amazing Stila set as a birthday pressie from Sarah!
17th December- Decorated the Christmas tree with mumma!
18th December- Spent the morning wrapping a mo…

30.12.2011- My top five Fashion Moments of 2011

Another year over, a new one just about to begin as the old song (almost) goes. I for one can't believe how quickly the last year has flown by, and 2011 has been host to some fantastic fashion moments. Here are my top five of the year:

1) The McQueen wedding dress fit for a Princess 
After month…

27.12.11- Bal Masqué

If you're still searching for inspiration for an outfit to wear to any New Year's Eve parties you may be going to at the weekend, look no further than this stunning editorial from Vogue China:

Even if you're not headed to anything as glamorous as a masquerade ball, I love the idea of get…

26.12.2011- Monday Must-haves: Sale Steals Special

We're just one day after Christmas, and it can't have escaped your notice that the sales are already well underway. Call me a traditionalist, but I'm a firm believer that Boxing Day should be reserved for seeing family, tucking into turkey sandwiches and devouring a selection box of cho…

25.12.2011- Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful, peaceful day filled with delicious food, fantastic company and beautiful memories.

24.12.2011- Make It Yourself Christmas: The Hummingbird Bakery's Grasshopper Pie

This recipe is another really great alternative to the traditional Christmas desserts- and even if you don't get round to making it for tomorrow, it's a great way to use up leftover sweet treats which you might have as presents. (Also, I hasten to add that this isn't made from actual gr…

23.12.2011- Christmas Wrapping

If you're still looking for some festive style inspiration, than search no further than this stunning editorial from Numéro:

How I wish I could style my hair so it looked remotely like this!

22.12.2011- Make It Yourself Christmas: Mary Berry's Chocolate Roulade

In my opinion, one of the best things about Christmas is Christmas Dinner. I'm a big fan of a Sunday roast at the best of times, so the opportunity to pile my pate high with turkey and plenty of my favourite vegetables is one I look forward to every year. However, in my house there is invariabl…

21.12.2011- Blogger's Christmas Cocktail Party

You may remember back in April I took part in the Blogger's Royal Wedding Celebration. As a celebration of the festive season, Sarah has once again set us the challenge of coming up with two outfits for a very special Blogger's Christmas Cocktail Party. The brief is exactly the same as bef…

20.12.2011- Festive Dress Guide Part Four: The Little Black Dress

The final edition of my Festive Dress Guide focuses on that classic wardrobe staple- The Little Black Dress. A versatile item which is a failsafe year in year out, and which is perfect if you're still stuck for outfit inspiration:

I spied this dress from Zara online a few weeks ago, and was amaz…

19.12.2011- Monday Must-haves: The Christmas Countdown

With less than a week to get those last minute pressies, this final installment of my Christmas themed Monday Must-haves focuses on gifts which are at the more luxurious end of the spectrum. Extra special presents for extra special people, if you will (or indeed if you're feeling guilty about l…

18.12.2011- Sunday Style Spotlight #11: Keira Knightley

I've posted before about my love of Keira Knightley's style, and I think she's one of a select few modern film stars who embodies a really vintage inspired elegance on the red carpet. As the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, she can take her pick from Karl Lagerfeld'…

17.12.2011- Festive Dress Guide Part Three: The Repeat Offender

With only a week to go until Christmas Day, I'm beginning to frantically trawl online shops (I'm looking at you ASOS!) looking for an outfit. However, I'm reluctant to part with my pennies for something which I'll only wear once, a dilemma which has inspired this instalment of my Fe…

16.12.2011- Weekend Wishes

Although I hate the snow, there is something quite magical about it, especially at this time the year. Not so magical, however, is the sight of me dressed head to toe in my cold weather gear- think Abominable Snowman crossed with Scott of the Antarctic and you're there. With the wintry weather …

15.12.2011- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I have to confess, I'm a little bit behind with my Christmas preparations this year. All of my presents are bought, but my cards are yet to be written out and the tree is still waiting to go up. I'm slowly but surely feeling more festive, and am confident that the decorations will be finish…

14.12.2011- What I Wore Today #5

These posts have been a little bit neglected of late, but with it getting dark so early at the moment it's proving tricky to take any photos which don't make me look like a long lost relative of the Addams family- put it this way, flash is not my friend! Anyway, I managed to catch my outfit…

13.12.11- Festive Dress Guide Part Two: The Christmas Treat

As far as Christmas Day dressing goes, for me comfort is key. I'd happily spend the day in my pyjamas (accessorized with tinsel, of course!), but this probably isn't the most appropriate of outfits when it comes to welcoming the family round- the sight of me in my dressing gown and slippers…

12.12.11- Monday Must-haves: The Christmas Countdown

My pick of Must-have Christmas gifts this week focuses on presents which fall under a £50 price tag. Whilst this array of gifts may be a touch more expensive than the under £20 picks I posted last week, I've tried to choose a selection of things which will last and which I think make for really…

11.12.11- Sunday Style Spotlight #10: Liv Tyler

Since the age of about 11 (when I became obsessed with all things Lord of the Rings!), I've really admired Liv Tyler's style. Her attitude to fashion is relaxed, classic and easy-going, capturing an attitude which is quintessentially New York. As someone who is a little bit on the tall side…

09.12.2011- Weekend Wishes

I don't know about you, but there's something about this time of year which makes me want to escape from the chaos of the pre-Christmas rush. Whilst I love the preparations in the run up to the day itself, it does seem that this year is proving quite stressful. So, this weekend, I'd lov…
