Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of my readers! Here are a few snaps from my own celebrations xx

Russian Dolls

I have raved about Russian socialite/model/superamazingfashiondesigner Ulyana Sergeenko before. Along with Vika Gazinskaya, Miroslava Suma and Elena Perminova, Ulyana is part of the breathe of fresh air currently revitalising the fashion scene, that I like to think of collectively as The Russian Dolls.

These awe-inspiring images were taken backstage at Ulyana's Spring/Summer 2012 show. A show filled with the staple pieces that we are beginning to expect and delight at - head scarves, nipped-in waists, full pouffy skirts.

If money was no object, I know what I would be wearing come Spring.

My 2011, on film

Hot under the Collar

A perfectly starched collar peeking out from beneath a cosy jumper is geek chic at it's finest.

In the festive spirit

I'm back! My laptop is fixed, we had our first glimpse of snow today and I am listening to the Emmy the Great and Time Wheeler Christmas album - it finally feels like Christmas! And what better way to spread the Christmas spirit, than with these magical ice-skating photographs by Agnes Thor for The Loved One?

Flower Child

It may be the 1st of December tomorrow, but I would rather have vases of fresh flowers scattered around my house than a Christmas tree. I wish that Amy Merrick could grace my home with her beautiful bouquets.

Jingle Bells!

Oh i wish it could be Christmas all year round!

The festive spirit is now upon me in full force. The office Christmas party is mere weeks away, my shopping list is steadily being ticked off and I have even tasted my first mince pie of the season! I have been compiling Christmas wish lists, both of completely unrealistic and obtainable items. Here is a mix of goodies that I would love to find wrapped up under the tree on Christmas morning. Any family and friends reading this - take note!

Wise Owl Canister - Anthropologie, Multi-Stone Ring - Topshop, Cat-ula - ModCloth, DAB Radio - Roberts, Candle - Jo Malone, Men's Cashmere Jumper - Gap, Charm - Anthropologie, Dress- Topshop

Autumn Leaves

Nothing depicts the feeling of Autumn quite so beautifully as these photographs of Hannah taken by Agnes Thor. Tumbling red hair set amongst intensely colourful trees makes for truly breath-taking images. I'm currently feeling inspired to take my camera and hunt for the most spectacular autumn leaves that I can find to prance amongst. Any other redheads fancy getting involved?
