Win a trip to Lapland with Transun!

Transun are currently giving a blogger the chance to win a day trip to Lapland for you and three guests. You have to write a blog post on your favorite Christmas memory or experience. It sounds like an insane trip and you can find more on how to enter here!
Christmas is my favorite time of the year, but I'm now 20 and nothing beats being a little youth and getting very excited at the prospect of Santa Claus dropping off some presents for been a good little girl. That's why I've chosen to write about when I visited Disneyland Paris when I was four.
So we're going way back to 1998 when my family and I took a little Christmas trip to the happiest place on earth. I obviously can't remember a lot but I do remember it being the most magical trip. I've never believed in Christmas more than I did when I was seeing Santa Claus with all of his Reindeer's in the Disney parade and then lighting up the big Christmas Tree whilst sprinkling Disney Magic Dust (Which I still have kept some after all these years). Santa was obviously the real deal - He could speak English AND French and personally knew Mickey and Minnie. No one else had that magical power of being able to light the Disney Christmas Tree by spreading Disney Dust - It was so mesmerizing for me!
Disneyland doesn't take any shortcuts, the place was decked out with the most magical decorations. The parades were enchanting and the whole experience was mind blowing for my four year old self to take in.





I think Disneyland was a place that shaped Christmas to being a truly magical time of the year and my childhood was always filled with magical memories. Whether it's just getting together with family and watching Christmas classics such as The Polar Express (One of my favorites) or seeing the Christmas Lights and Windows in London, It always seems so magical to me. That's why Christmas is my favorite time of the year.

What do you love about Christmas?

The Leopard IT Skirt

Hey Guys! I feel like my posts have been very sporadic recently. I've been focusing on my Dissertation so I've been a bit pre-occupied. I have lot's of posts to publish but It's been hard to find the time to organize myself. Last night I took some time out and popped off to a Bobbi Brown Event - They were doing a masterclass on their famous smokey eye. It was a really great event and I learnt so many tips and tricks of the smoky eye!
I thought I'd do a quick outfit post on what I wore to the event. I finally got my hands on the IT skirt from Topshop which has been seen on all the billboards worn by Cara Delevingne. As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed it. I paired it with a high neck jumper and my Bershka Fedora. 
Top - Matalan
Hat - Bershka
Watch - Michael Kors




I'll be doing a little post about the Bobbi Brown event so keep your eyes peeled. If you're interested in winning tickets to the festive gift fair in Birmingham, I have a giveaway going here!

Monochrome Stripes

I've spent the past couple of days at home and I had a few exciting parcels when I arrived. One included this gorgeous dress from Quiz. I can't wait to wear this dress more as it's such a classic, You can wear it to so many different occasions and it will always look great. I think if I wore this in Summer with a big floppy hat, it would be very Blair Waldorf.
I paired the dress with some pink heels as I wanted to inject a little bit of colour. I really love these heels, I got these in New York from a store called Payless Shoes. I'm pretty sure they were stupidly cheap at like $12, but I love them!
Heels - Payless Shoes
Watch - Michael Kors
Bag - Chanel




Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! 

XOXO
