It's Christmas Eve. Wow. The rate at which the years fly by is beyond me, so much so that it doesn't even feel like Christmas at all. This year's Autumn/Winter has genuinely been my busiest between balancing the art of blogging with maintaining high grades in college. You can pretty much say sleep was no longer a thing I had time for, nor was admiring beautiful Christmas decorations in the midst of Dublin. However, I can pretty much say that I've recovered now as all I have done in the last week is eat and sleep. I know this might sound strangely pathetic but I'm already so excited for Christmas to be over so I can stop eating chocolate for breakfast and sleeping for far too many hours a night. Can someone kill me now? That is literally the oddest thing I have ever said.

GRINCH. I promise you, I am not. Christmas is the most important part of the year for me. I cherish the 48 hours I get to spend with my family as a whole, especially since we don't get to see much of each other anymore. I think this Christmas is more special to me because I am leaving for Vancouver next Thursday and my elder sister will be leaving for England the following day. As It's very rare to get us all as a whole in the one room, Christmas always means all that much more. It's too bad I was blessed with a black eye on Monday night (where is that 'laughing emoji' when you need it?), tomorrow would have been a selfie-filled day. 

Trends & outfit details: CAKE. That is all I think about when I look at this jacket. A delicious, rich and enticing piece of luxury. I love how the colours melt into each other like the double cream and white chocolate in a cheesecake. I wouldn't normally compare food to clothes because we all know who's really going to win in that battle. BUT that is just how I feel about this Savida coat. It is so exquisitely fabulous in every single way. When I first slipped it on during this shoot, I felt like African royalty. I appreciate how the top ties in so well with the coat. If I walked into a conference wearing this outfit, people who didn't know any better would assume that I must be something of great importance. What I love most about this outfit is the intrinsic silver and black skirt. If you knew me personally, you'd understand how much of a prep I am. I simply cannot do without preppy clothing: loafers, shirts, blazers (22 and counting) and lots of plaid. It often saddens me to think that a lot of people assume preppy is boring. I think I have a knack of making it look more interesting. I don't stick to plain colours or minimalism. I delve into patterns, textures, and print. I quite like the idea of my style resembling my personality; proper but with a lot of craziness.  So there you have it, preppy might be classy, sophisticated and graceful but It is not boring. To me, It's evolutionary.
