Oversized Houndstooth Blanket Scarf

Friday, 2 January 2015

Happy 2015 everyone! Most people headed back to work today *GROAN* so I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I worked the entire thing *BIGGER GROAN* but I'm looking forward to celebrating my birthday on Monday with a delicious (well deserved) week off. Huzzah! I was absolutely spoilt over Christmas, some of my favourite gifts include this rawrsome green leather jacket from my parents, a cool new Mi Moneda Da Vinci coin and this oversized houndstooth scarf!

I've also started shopping the sales a little and my favourite purchase has to be these leopard ankle boots from Next, reduced from £70 to just £35! I'm trying to be more careful with my money in 2015 as I'm going to start looking at wedding venues this month. SQUEE.

I never make any New Years' Resolutions but I am hoping to enjoy life a little more, be thankful for what I have, stop comparing myself to others and be allow myself to be happier! I've started my first motivational audio book and I feel like a sponge, excited to suck up as much positive advice as possible.

What was your favourite Christmas gift? Do you have any plans for 2015?
