My camera has had it... So please forgive the lack of photos in the next week, they'll only be shoddy Photo Booth snaps or maybe the occasional proper shot if I can beg, borrow, or steal a camera from a friend. I'll be picking up a new camera when my Christmas money comes through...

Here's a shot of my new jumper! It's super warm, pretty grandpa chic, and has lots of extra room for after-Christmas turkey belly. Which I fully intend on acquiring...

Yup, still painfully awkward having my photo taken...

Before my camera totally gave up on life, I did manage to get some snaps of our tree, which is, I think, absolutely beautiful... All the decorations came from Katrina Phillips, a beautiful shop which can be found at Number 99, Portobello Road in London. I've done several stints working in Katrina's shop over the last few years, it's my favourite place to work in the world. I plan on doing a proper post about it soon, because it's full of treasures and everyone should know about it (it was featured this year in Vogue's secret address book). For now, these will have to suffice...

This is the whole tree, in all it's glory... My pup insisted in getting into the shot too, vain thing.

My Ma does seem to have slight schizophrenia in regard to Christmas decorations though - while the inside is (in my opinion) beautiful and classy, the outside is full of neon fiends like these.

And she wonders why we're not more popular with the neighbours.

He's smirking because he knows he's making the neighbours laugh at us.

What's your Christmas decoration style? Are you a fan of bedazzled Christmas houses, or do you prefer more a more traditional, classic aesthetic?

I hope you're all having perfect, lazy Sundays.

  7. Thank you all so much... It's so lovely to get feedback, thank you all for taking the time to comment!

    Especially about the snowman etc... Keep the negative feedback flowing, hopefully I can convince my Ma to remove them! Or at least confine them to the back garden...

  9. I adore the Christmas decorations (except possibly the snowman - he's something else entirely) and love the jumper! I've been looking for something similar for ages - where's it from? xx

  10. Thank you! Scarlett, it was a family friend's, his wife shrunk it and I saved it from being taken to the charity shop... But you can normally find similars in vintage sales and charity shops - sorry I can't be more useful
