Wild berries

Bright red really isn't my thing. Good enough to decorate the Christmas tree, but not my favourite choice for a party outfit. With Christmas creeping closer, my couleur-du-jour is burgundy. The dark, rich colour that brings to mind a good glass of wine or a handful of wild berries. My favourite pair of jeans and this cozy sweater will get me comfortably through the holidays. Sweater combined with this plaid pants and a pair of heels - perfect to welcome the new year. Happy holidays everyone!

This month had lots of really nice moments. Went for drinks with my colleagues and ate too much garlic bread. Had some lovely me-time, having a Dermalogica facial. Danced the night away at Magic. Hosted a brunch for dear friend Sofie and her daughter Alix - ladies who brunch. Got my hair cut and coloured, a beachy blonde to remember summer. Drank much too much coffee and ate lots of cake.
