#Xmasjumperday xxx

Hey Beauties,

So after promising to be better, we weren't....I am sure you will all agree that it is this time of year though right? It seems to be maddeningly manic with shopping, christmas parties, carolling...doesn't leave much time to write about it huh?

Nevertheless, I did want to write a quick post about my all time favourite Charity day of the year - Christmas Jumper Day (#xmasjumperday, 14th Dec 2012 - for the record, while the date may have passed, the opportunity to donate has not so please please check out!

The aim of this wonderfully festive day in December which is to raise money for 'Save the Children', which works in 120 countries to help save children's lives.

So, not only do you get to feel a little better about yourself for giving a little something back, but you get to really and truly get into the Christmas spirit - I mean how can you not feel festive when you're wearing a great big snow man on your chest?! Suffice to say, I was in the minority in my festive gear in the office - business men seem to think they are above silly jumpers and such, which I found disappointing. Nevertheless, I feel sure that my festive cheer brightened up some of their days!

What do you make of my Topshop 2011 Christmas jumper? I am in love with it, I would wear it every day if it didn't need to be washed! But what, pray tell, is with the shops having nooooo Christmas Jumpers in stock this year?! Did they think they would only be on trend for a year or something!? Seriously, I detest the sparcity - I certainly wanted to pick up a few more - there's Christmas eve, Christmas day and Boxing day on which to wear these bobbly beauties after all...I will let you know if I have any better luck than I've been having and likewise, would love some recommendations! Where are you all buying your festive jumpers this season?

So, what do you think of mine?

Love and sparkles to you all; as always, we love hearing from you.

Love, Christie.

Double OOTD and some Christmas Twinkles

Good evening beautiful people,

How are you all? I don't suppose anyone needs telling that it is in fact the beginning of the Christmas Season TODAY. Admittedly, Cait and I have harnessed our love of hot choccie and festive drinks long before it officially became the Christmas Season but still, today is a BIG day. Not least because it was day One of the Sacred Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar. 

Anyhow, as promised earlier this week, we thought we do an OOTD post - double in as much that we both feature in this one! Its really an outfit of the evening but that has a strange and potentially sinister sound to it, but as you can see, we were out for the evening - at dinner and the theatre in fact! Mommy Booth's birthday is almost always celebrated this way - this year, it was Singing in the Rain :) Definitely recommend it, even if you aren't the biggest musical theatre fan in the world. 

*Cait's Look: 

Eggshell Blazer: Topshop 
Maroon Leggings: Topshop 
Necklace: Topshop
Black Wedges: Kurt Geiger 
Bag: Mulberry (Lily

*Chris' Look: 

Faux Fur Snood: Kurt Geiger 
Black Dress: Appletree Boutique 
Blazer: Whistles 
Bag: Mulberry (Bayswater

We have also included a few happy snaps of the gorgeousness that is London in Winter and at Christmas time - there is something so exquisite about it, even through the rain splattered car window. 

Anyway, we'd love to hear what you make of the outfits - as always, we love hearing from you! 

Lots of love, from the heart as always, 

C & C
