I hope you guys all had a very merry Christmas. I'm currently on the sofa feeling a bit sick and have been in my pjs for most of the day. I could get used to this! It's been a fairly quiet Christmas for me, I don't have a big family so spent yesterday at home watching all my favourite films with a box of chocolates in my lap. I was spoilt rotten even though I asked people not to get me presents this year. I posted some photos from the day and my very special present over on instagram (fatfrocks).

It's tradition for me and my school friends to go out on Christmas eve to our local pub and get rather merry. This year was a little more subdued than normal but I still had a great time and loved getting dressed up and see people who I don't get much chance to hang out with. Seeing all my school friends definitely makes me feel very immature when lots of them are settled down and do very sensible things. Although I do feel very lucky not to have a mortgage and be able to do fun things.

My Christmas eve outfit (tad over dressed for the pub):


Dress: ASOS
Shoes: Daisy Street
Necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

statement necklace

I picked up this necklace in the Dorothy Perkins sale for £6 and I've already worn it loads, such a good impulse buy. Have you seen any good accessories sales? I'm looking to get a few statement necklaces.

sookie christmas

We don't have any children in the family so we totally spoil Sookie rotten and shower her with presents and gifts at Christmas. Look at her in that little jacket, so adorable! We wrap all her presents and let her open them, we are a bit insane...

Off to watch Dr Who for the 5th time now, see you later in the week for some 'Best of 2012' type posts.
