Embellished Dreams

Hi Guys, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, today was fun, i indulged in one of my favourite things which is shopping & gisting (Nigerian slang for catching up with a friend).

I know i said on twitter that i wasn't going to shop anymore and i wasn't about to break that promise just yet but was roped into showing a friend the sites of Bricklane, so whilst i was there naturally a few things caught my eye and the rest as they say is history. Although i must say i only bought two
things which is quite an achievement for me :)

The good old turtle neck is finally out, so officially in my books it is winter!!!!!!

I am currently on the search for a Christmas jumper but i don't want the traditional stuff, i want an embellished one, hence the pictures below, i didn't quite find what i was looking for today but i will keep searching.

I have this thing where i like to wear something new on Christmas day, does anyone do this? i think it stems from the fact that growing up we used to get Christmas day outfits from our parents. Now i am not sure if this is a Nigerian thing but additional to the Christmas presents you receive, our parents would buy us a new outfit usually something fancy that was to be worn on Christmas day (and before you ask, yes you can wear it again after Xmas lol).

Anyway i have kind of carried on the tradition & like to wear at least one new item on Christmas day, so silly i know, i guess i just like to make an effort on the lord's birthday :)
