fool me again.



Yesterday, I went with my mum to get our Christmas tree. It was so magical because it had been snowing, so all the trees were dusted with snow. We found two pretty good trees straight away (I'm super good at finding nice trees) and decided to go for the massive bushy one! I think it might be the best tree we've ever had! Then it started snowing again! It was so exciting and magical and festive :) really made me feel happy inside.















After that we went into Totnes for a bit of shopping and lunch and stuff. I got these really cute slipper sock things! I LOVE them!



Then it was time to get the tree out and decorate it. While I was doing this I looked out of the window to see that it was snowing again!

I'm not a big fan of tinsel or baubles, and I am a big fan of tradition, so this is our tree. It has some decorations that we've had as long as I can remember. I might take some close up photos of them sometime. (It looks a LOT better without flash!)




(WEARING: headscarf - my mum's ; shirt - h&m ; tie - ribbon ; skirt - charity shop ; navy tights - primark ; slipper socks - totnes market.)

I'm a pretty bummed out this morning because I was meant to be travelling up to London to see someone I miss a lot. I won't go into it, but it's part of the whole "big decision" thing I've vaguely mentioned before. But it snowed again so the world is all pretty (I'm enjoying listening to it crunch as people walk past my house, and the strange noises coming from my roof as it melts and cracks), and I'm partying with some of my favourite people tonight, so I'm going to be just fine, thank you very much.

Here's a Christmas song, because everybody loves a bit of Wham! (I wasn't allowed to embed the official video, but hey, now you have the lyrics so you can sing along!)

  9. Sounds like you had a blast finding and decorating the tree! I love ornaments that aren't flashy but have a special meaning behind them. Those are the ones that make the tree really unique.


    Your outfit is so cute lady. I cannot get over your headscarf!

    Take care
    xx

  14. I love going to get the tree, actually prefer that to decorating it as my family don't let me realise my "perfect christmas" vision.

  31. Ah Marldon Christmas Tree farm, We've got our christmas tree from there every year since I can remember, when I was really little my parents said we could get a tree from somewhere else instead and I was really upset because I thought they were the only real trees (In my head, literally the xmas tree farm was warm and happy whilst anywhere else would have a cockney man in a brown jacket "flogging" trees, and in my mind, xmas trees don't deserve to be "flogged") I was an imaginative kid... Long story short, we couldn't find a better tree, so we went there anyway!

    This year, I've been xmas tree shopping THREE times! and you know? it never gets boring! :D

  34. love your christmas tree, i totally agree with the whole tradition thing rather than pilling aload of tinsel on it, each year we buy a new tree decoration and add it on :) xx
