Haul: What I got my Boyfriend for Christmas

Hi all!

I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing Christmas. I know I did and it was filled with wine...

I decided before I gifted my Boyfriend his presents I would take a picture of them and share with you what I got. I thought it would be a nice spin instead of annoying you all with what I received from Saint Nick.

Seán(the Boy) loves to wear suits. Any chance he gets he's in one. He's even sent me a picture here and there where he's just put one on at home 'for the craic' so I decided that something to do with this obsession would be appropriate. He's also studying Computer Science in college so is a self confessed nerd. So with that back story here is what I got!

I got these nerd cuff links back in October when I was browsing Etsy(for the first time) looking for ideas for Christmas(I like to start early) when i saw 'Geek cufflinks' this sent me on a frenzy to find ones saying Nerd as it's a running joke but also terribly true! I came across a pair here so was delighted!
On passing one day Seán mentioned how he would love a pocket watch for when he wears a suit so I stored that information and bought him exactly that. It's from Sekonda so it wasn't very expensive but it looks it in my opinion and what's more important is he loved it! I was so happy with his reaction that I think it's safe to say it's one of the best presents I've ever got someone before!

 So that is what I got my Boyfriend for Christmas! We also made something for each other but one I'm not going to bore you with it and two it's more on the personal side.

Did any of you get something for a loved one this year that you feel you hit the mark spot on? Or did you receive something that was just perfect for you?

I hope you're all well and I'll talk to you in the New Year!(eek!)

Love and Hugs,

Alice May xx

Christmas Outfit Ideas!

Hey everyone!

Today I'm writing a post with some outfit ideas to wear over the Christmas period. Everyone has parties and nights out around this time so thought I would show you some of the outfits I would wear.
These three outfits are what I've worn before so the photo's are kind of 'live in action'
Everyone loves a skater skirt, why not pair it with a simple black tee and a gold belt to split it up? I'm wearing brogues with this outfit instead of heels.
 I really like to wear jeans and heels when I go out it's super easy, keeps you warm and no worries when it comes to wind! I wore black skinny jeans from River Island, a simple black flowy top, A purple blazer for a pop of colour, simple nude shoes and my Michael Kors handbag
 I love this dress! I wore it to my cousins wedding believe it or not just over a year ago and it has seen so much wear! I wore is on Christmas day last year. It's just a simple black skater style velvet dress from New Look that I paired with a simple gold belt from Penny's. I love wearing all black(have you noticed?) so wearing black tights and black heels I feel brings the whole outfit together.
Lastly I just wanted to briefly show the dress I'll be wearing this Christmas. I don't have the best pictures but I wore it to a wedding in October. I'll be wearing this navy dress from A|Wear the same way but with tights. I bought the purple blazer from the 'jeans outfit' for this dress so I'll wear that too. I bought low nude heels for the wedding as I had a sprained ankle at the time and I also didn't want sky scrapers! As a result I was able to wear them for ages so think this is a new thing for me!

I hope I gave you some ideas on what to wear this Christmas season. I hope you're all doing really well.

All my love,

Alice May xx
