Christmas crazy

I love Christmas and anything associated with it, cold weather, big coats and scarves, layers upon layers, christmas displays, buying and wrapping gifts and festive cheer.
‘Its the most wonderful time of the year’

Large charity organization Save the Children have launched a Christmas Jumper campaign across the country to help those in need this festive season. Whilst out and about i saw these familar celeberity faces on Public Transport, im not sure if it was the hideous jumpers that caught my eye or the fact it was a famous face staring back at me, either way the ad was successful in grabbing my attention to the crucial date. Friday 13th December 2013 is national Christmas Jumper Day ‘making the world better with a sweater’ each £1 donated really can make the difference between life and death. You dont have to sign up or subscribe to anything, just wear a christmas jumper on the day, brought, borrowed or made, and donate £1 or more to Save the Children.

THE BIG SMOKE

There is nothing like the feeling I get when I’m in London town..

Its home! After spending a month on placement in London this year i instantly fell in love with the whole package, the lifestyle, the way of life, the social aspect, all of it!
So every opportunity i get to go back there even for the day, i jump at the chance. This week was one of my closest friends 21st birthday and as a little surprise me and my friends decided to take her to London for the day for lots of fun birthday activities! First stop my favorite go to in London, The Victoria and Albert Museum. I had heard great reviews about the current exhibition ‘club to catwalk’ showcasing club fashion in the 1980’s and how it developed and It was fabulous!! Shockingly the outfits were not that far from today’s clubbing attire.

From Vivienne West wood to BOY London the exhibition showcased the best and worst, giving a real insight into past fashion. The exhibition space was one of my favorites with the balcony above creating two separate clean spaces, added on was also a little boutique shop were you could purchase everything from books to garments, all relating to 1980’s club fashion. I would definitely recommend a visit before it finishes in February 2014!

The Christmas lights were in full swing on Oxford circus and with Christmas display windows bursting out of every store, Christmas fever hit me.
