Morning ladies.  Today marks the start of a few posts I've put together for outfit suggestions for the forthcoming Christmas festivities.  As I don't know about you but this is probably the time of year where we've all got at least a couple of occasions for dressing up & it's always nice to have some ideas from which you can shop or draw inspiration.

So for my first post I thought we'd concentrate on Christmas parties - whether that be the office party, a night out with the girls or a meal with family/friends.

Now when I started writing this post I didn't intend to pick mainly black clothing but as it happens these are the pieces I was most drawn to & if I'm honest probably what I'm most likely to wear for a dressier occasion.  Plus it means you can have fun with your accessories such as the sparkly slogan clutch above, not to mention with a simple change of accessories you can create a whole new look.

And of course they're also multi-functional as well & can so easily be dressed down to day wear to help justify that new purchase or two ;-)

Stepping away from party clothes & onto a few new house purchases that I made over the course of Cyber Weekend that are still on offer.  Firstly this stunning Pineapple light that currently has 30% off till midnight on Sunday & secondly a new room diffuser.

And finally this gorgeous snow globe that I'm planning on keeping out all year long because who doesn't love watching the glitter fall all year round?!  This is part of a 3 for 2 offer so if you've got a couple of Christmas presents to buy you can get it for free :-)
