19 December 2017

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Wishing you a very Merry CLUSE-mas! (See what I did there? 😏)

It's December. It's December and there's LESS THAN A WEEK until Christmas Day! What? How did that happen? Where did you go 2017? I mean, the last time I looked it was February and now, as if by some peculiar Christmas magic, my house is adorned with festive decorations and fairy lights, and my pantry filled with gingerbread men and chocolates (lots of chocolates).

And I don't mind at all. Not one measly little bit.

So, as I spend my days  madly rushing around finalising all my work (whilst looking frantically at the time on my current go-to Cluse watch in all of its black leather and marble goodness), starting and finishing my Christmas present shopping (I swear I tried to be organised this year - I blame it on Brad), and catching-up with friends before they head home for the holidays, I'm also embracing that magical Christmas spirit.

Oh yes, my friends, I'm talking about spiced chai lattes, rum balls, candy canes and chocolate wafers, because Christmas is all about food and food is all about Christmas. Summer bodies are out and all the food is in this season, folks.

Of course, I've also been rocking out to All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey on the Cluse MerryCLUSEmas Spotify playlist. I hate to brag, but my amazing dance moves have come out in full swing this December, regardless of whether I'm bopping away at my desk or swaying whilst doing housework. I know how to move my body to the sweet sound of Christmas Carols - my cat told me so. Said cat also told me to write that she didn't in fact say that because I have no rhythm at all.

I wanted to take this moment to wish you all a very Happy Holidays filled with family and friends (with dance moves that could rival my own), delicious spreads of festive-themed food and leftovers (who else thinks leftovers are the best?!), and a lot of relaxation, rejuvenation and food-coma-induced naps, just in time for a stellar New Year.

I'm wearing: Cluse La Roche watch in Full Black/White Marble, Missguided pyjama set (oldies, but they have the cutest sets here) and Marks & Spencer koala bear socks (last season, but I found these ones! 😍).
