Hello there 2012! I have just been through the most exhilarating December in my life to date, part of the reason will be revealed when I actually believe it myself. It is, for obvious reasons, a month which all children - myself included - await with trepidation...why? It's not difficult to guess! It's my birthday right after Christmas, and, of course, it wouldn't be the same without the annual Bicester Village hunting trip. One of my favourites is Jigsaw's outlet store, which usually has a rail of heavily discounted press samples that I always rummage through. At first, when I tried on the dress, it had two strange flaps on either side; I soon realised that they were supposed to be tied together at the front, et voila!- my birthday dress was discovered. The material is a gloriously soft silk, and at £19 I could not resist. The tights I am wearing were another wonderful present which came from Bicester Village - I squealed as my sister handed me the Aubin and Wills tissue paper package... My beret was a gift from a stocking I won in a competition ran by the generous Rokit - the other goodies from there will be featured in upcoming blog posts.
Hope you all had an incredible holiday!
