Dear Santa, I’ve been good this yearOkay, most of the yearOkay, okay, once in a while…Never mind. I’ll buy my own presents :/

It’s hard to get into the Christmas spirit especially when you’re working on Christmas Eve! But I’ve got so much to be thankful for this year that nothing can stop me from smiling on the inside. Not even being beaten in the rainstorm whilst on my way to work this morning.

Christmas means different things to different people – For shopaholics it’s bargain season! It’s that moment they’ve been saving all year for. For kids it’s Santa time and all about presents! For boys, it’s trying to get girls under the mistletoe. For retailers, it’s all about marketing campaigns. For parents it usually doesn’t feel like the most wonderful time of the year especially as by January they’ll be feeling well ripped off and bankrupt… There was this lady on TV yesterday. She was 87 and she had to buy presents for over 50 people. Yes, she had so many relatives (nieces, kids, grandkids, nephews) she had lost count. The amazing this was she was very excited about it!

Christmas is all about the joy of giving and remembering why there is a Christmas in the first place – the birth of Christ.

I’ve got so many things to be thankful for this year that I can’t help but giveaway 🙂

I will be partnering with The Ankara House to give you one stunning Ankara maxi skirt off their shop. Please subscribe for details and follow me on Instagram for more on this.

Love you all xx

PS: This outfit is my casual chic version of a Christmas party dress. It’s got all the right colours and sprinkling of glitter but still casual enough to wear in the daytime 🙂 Can you tell #I’ve fallen in love with dresses or tops that come with their own choker?

OUTFIT: Blue Vanilla ribbed glitter midi dress, New Look pointed boots, ASOS suede biker jacket in oil wash
