The Women Keep The Tempo

song of the day - Upgrade U by Beyonce ft Jay Z
I thought as this would be my last blog post of the year, I'd finish off with an outfit similar to my first of 2014. I do love this dress, but it isn't often that I wear it. The wool tends to pull and get caught very easily, so it's a bit of a faff to wear.
 tee- Urban Outfitters. dress & leggings - H&M. scarf - Primark. boots - Bertie.
I'm hoping to get a 2014 round up post done this weekend when I have a few days off from work.  Until then, I'd like to wish you all a happy new year! Lets make 2015 a good one!

Have A Happy Holiday

song of the day - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
This year we did Christmas a little differently by celebrating at my brothers house. I was also ill with the flu and a chest infection (which I'm hoping will be gone soon), so I didn't feel upto taking that many photographs. Here are a few that I managed.
 The Christmas crackers had these wind up reindeer in them, and after eating my family raced them. My oldest brother somehow managed to win.
 One of the bros decided to take my camera off me to take this picture. You might be able to tell from me being slightly hunched over, and that I hadn't even done my hair, that I wasn't feeling my best.

Santa Baby, Just Hurry Down The Chimney To Me

song of the day - Santa Baby by Kylie Minogue
This is something I have said multiple times, but I cannot wait for Christmas. To get fully in the mood I thought I'd do the Christmas tag. This tag has been floating around for a while now, so here we go!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
The Muppets Christmas Carol, hands down. I love it so much! Gonzo and Rizzo are just perfection. "Oh, there goes Mr Humbug, there goes Mr Grim...". Then of course there's Home Alone, and Jingle All The Way.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas Eve, we (and by 'we' I mean my family and I) eat around 5/6, then after that we'll hand out the gifts and open them. We do our main meal on Christmas Eve too.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Not really. I remember one year when my Grandma got one of mine and my brothers presents mixed up and so he got my tights and I got his socks. 
4. Favourite festive food?
Poppyseed cake. I love the stuff, but my Grandad would only make it for Christmas, so I'd look forward to it for all of December, then finally after our main meal I could have some.
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I don't think I have one. As a child I loved a little kitchen that I got. I remember playing with it all the time, and using salt and pepper as pretend food in the pots.  
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Does 'warmth' count?  Like, after you've been out all day, and you get inside and that heat immediately hits you, and the air kind of smells 'warm'.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
As I mentioned above we celebrate on Christmas Eve rather than on the day itself, so I guess that's kind of a tradition.
8. What tops your tree?
For the last few years a Star. 
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I honestly don't know. I can't remember ever asking for a Christmas gift, or wanting something really badly. I probably did, but nothing stands out.
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
The three Fs. Food, family, and friends.

Have you done the tag? Do let me know by leaving a comment below!

Your Attitude Determines Your Latitude

song of the day - Brand New by Kanye West
 necklace - Beaverbrooks
Christmas could not come sooner. It feels like these past few months have been dragging for me and I can't wait for it to be 2015. So much has changed over the past 11 months, and hopefully the good times keep on coming.
 cardi & blouse - Zara. skirt & leggings - Primark. boots - Bertie
I love wearing white blouses, but sometimes they make me feel like I'm back at school. I was at the dentists a few weeks ago and one of the other people waiting for a checkup actually thought I was still in secondary school, I just laughed it off and said "No Love, I'm off to work after this".
There's a thin line between 'mature' and 'school girl' when it comes to white shirts and black trousers.
