The most frantic time of the year!

 Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone! Is it just me or is this not just the most wonderful time of the year BUT the most frantic, crazy, exhausting time of the year?! Seriously.. I’m shattered. Sorry things have been a little sporadic on the blog post front here, it has been cray-cray here.

It was my step sons birthday on Sunday, which led us to the cinema to see the new Star Wars movie (oh my god you guys., have you seen it? It was bloody amazing. I’m a huge fan and i am so utterly impressed by this new movie for so many reasons, i could in-fact write a whole post on this, but i shall save you ladies from that as alas, not every soul is a Star Wars fan,lol!)  So yes cinema, birthday celebrations and general loveliness.

Then it has been last orders for Christmas for Yosa, which has just been absolutely amazing.
So far December 2015 has been our best month ever.. i am so absolutely over the moon and then back again and over it all over again. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see my little baby business do well.
It makes all the blood, sweat and literal tears worth it and sends me in to Christmas feeling like i have been given the best present ever.
If you have been a Yosa customer, thank you, thank you endlessly.

And then on top of ALL that my poor little boy Neo, has chicken pox! Yep we are in quarantine over here, meaning any last minute shopping and trips out for festivities has been put on hold.
Plus trying to get any thing done (like writing a cohesive sentence) is practically impossible.
Someone ALWAYS needs something: a drink, cream for chicken spots (lol), a blanket, to put a film on, a snuggle (nawww) a cheese sandwich. Always something… Anyone else struggle with kids present to string a sentence together?
I’m on my second coffee already… !

Anyway, that’s enough from me (can you tell i haven’t had much social interaction lately, jabber on much Rachel ?!)

Today i bring you a sparkly little number from Boden.
This year i haven’t gone the traditional red route at all, which is a shocker. I love red! The festive season is still young and i feel some red clothing is definitely on the cards for the next few days.
But as you may have noticed i’ve really been loving a more neutral colour palatte, with camel and black at the top of that list.

This Boden embellished jumper is on sale so i snapped it up knowing it would tick all the right boxes for my neutral colour loving heart, but also a little festive with its shininess.


Embellished Sweater
Leather Look Trousers
Camel Coat: F&F last year. Love this one with its contrast collar
Ankle boots
Tassel Earrings
Clutch Bag

If i don’t get back before the big day:
Happy Holidays to you and yours! I wish you all the most wonderful festive time!
