A Week Of Snow

I mentioned in my last post that I was boarding with my parents and boyfriend in the French alps over New Years. We left the day after Boxing Day, stayed on an overnight ferry and drove to Courchevel… (long day in the car I tell thee! Especially since the weather was so bad on our way up the mountain to our chalet, it took over an hour to do 3km!).

The rest of the week was mostly sunny, with good snow, with only one day with pretty bad weather! No injuries, a few films, countless baguettes, 3 flans, a Nutella crepe and a whole series of Frozen Planet later, we’re back home and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow! So here are some photos from our trip!

Now here’s the one day where visibility was really poor! Helpful when you’re trying to get down from over 2500m!

The week in the snow was an amazing holiday and tradition ever since I can remember! Sometimes you need another holiday to recover from a week of snowboarding but I’m feeling pretty chilled out and ready for 2014! ;)

What did you guys get up to over New Years? Have you ever been on a snow holiday?

Into The Jungle

Tropical1

This is a post about one of my favourite items of the summer – this jumpsuit from Topshop. I know it’s a bit out there, but the print is amazing and I love the tropical feel! I went to Florida earlier this summer and I thought it would be perfect to take with me! And yes, I did wear it in Miami, daaahling! ;-)

One of the amazing things about this jumpsuit is that every time I wear it, I feel like I’m back in Florida on holiday and with the tropical weather we did have… I got quite a lot of wear out of it! Let’s hope that some of that weather comes back!

For a more dressier look, I paired the jumpsuit with my studded black belt and my new Topshop heels which I managed to snap up in the online sale! The clutch is from a vintage shop back in Nottingham where I went to uni and I have used it so much! Not bad for a fiver, eh!? ;-)

I do wear this outfit in the day as well and I usually put a plain white tee underneath and wear my white leather flats.

What do you think to the tropical print? Does it make you feel like you’re on holiday?
