One Is Never Undressed Or Overdressed In A Little Black Dress


|| Dress - Brandy Melville   Necklace - Topshop  ||

This dress was a Christmas present and ohmygosh I love it so much. It is so beautiful and fits like a dream and I want to wear it every day. The necklace was in my birthday haul and I loves it.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got loads of lovely presents! I finally got a Ukulele - woop woop! I'm still very bad (I can play a couple of chords but I'm struggling to get the strum right), but maybe if I get better, I'll record a bit for you. No promises though :)

Blog design is in process so please bear with. I'm getting there :)
Lots of Love

The Christmas Tag 2.0

I did the Christmas tag last year, but looking back I didn't really like the questions. So I look around the interweb, combined a few different ones and ta-dah! Here is updated (and in my view nicer) version of the Christmas Tag x

Do you like to stay in your PJ’s, or dress up for Christmas?
I stay in my pj's for a bit but I do dress up a bit when I get dressed. I usually just wear a dress or something.
Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning. My family has never really opened any presents on Christmas Eve and I don't think many of my friends have. Is this more of a thing in the US?
What do you like to do on your Christmas break?
Honestly, just sleep and watch movies. Christmas, in my eyes, is a time to chill and be with your family and friends. But I do like to go Ice Skating at Hampton Court and see the lights in London. Those are 2 things we do most years
What’s your favourite Christmas meal or treat?
Mince Pies.
What’s your favourite holiday movie?
My all time favourite is Love Actually. I will watch it any time of year to be honest. My childhood favourite is The Polar Express but I also love Elf.
Candy Canes or Gingerbread Men?
Gingerbread Men. I love gingerbread so much. Whenever I get candy canes I just never seem eat them :(
Have you ever made a snowman?
YES! Last year I mad one taller than myself - see it here
Which do you like better, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas Eve, and the Christmas build up in generally. I love the music, the lights, the shops,, wearing Christmas jumpers, just doing nothing and watching Christmas movies
White lights, or coloured lights?
Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Vixen, Blitzen, Donner, Rudolph ....... have I made some of those up?
Real or Fake tree?
I would love real but fake
What would be you're dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Either New York or the Alps. I would love to go to New York and see the lights and Times Square at Christmas, and I've always wanted to go and spend Christmas in a the mountains and the snow and go skiing and that kind of thing :)

If you want to do this tag, I would love for you to so please let me know so I can take a look!

Lots of love

p.s Buttons are on my button swap page now. They may stay there, they may not. I'm not 100% sure if I like it yet :)

Wear Your Navy Stripes And Let Us Talk Of Paris


||| Top - Brandy Melville    Jeans - Topshop Jamie jeans   Coat - H&M   Scarf - Topshop   |||

Let's not even mention the lighting :) So I paid a second visit to Brandy a week and a bit ago and I picked up this lovely navy striped crop top and I thought I would share it with you all. The other clothes are wardrobe staples which I realised I hadn't shown you and I though overall the outfit looked pretty good.

Guys. Its December. ITS CHRISTMASSSS! So look forward to some festive posts :)

Have a good week
Helena xx

p.s I shot this at 8pm on a Thursday night with fairy lights on. I apologise for the appalling lighting. But you see what I'm getting at.
