Throwing on the comfy clothes & winding down (a little)

Phew...... it's been a hectic few weeks. We've been really busy helping our daughter get ready to go to France for the ski season (she flew out last weekend & we're missing her like mad already!) Add Christmas into the mix and it all becomes a bit bonkers, I've felt like a headless chicken in all honesty, BUT, things are slowly coming together and I'm feeling a little calmer, I think ! 😀

To calm the frazzled nerves I've been taking some time out to chill, something I don't do enough of, I can never sit still!!! So, over the last few days I've made myself slow down, throw on the comfy clothes and take five. I struggle to sit and do 'nothing' so I've sat with notepad and pen or sometimes phone in hand, it's okay to still have your phone attached to your hand as long as you're sitting down chilling! I'm a list writer. I love writing lists for everything, it works for me, so I've sat crossing things off my to-do lists (then adding more on) and going through my Christmas list, crossing things off (and adding more on!). It just helps to calm my mind and I feel more in control, even if I'm really not!

I wanted to tell you about these clothes that I've practically been living in for the last week, they are so damn comfy. The Christmas jumper is from Primark and is so bloomin cosy. I do like to wear a Christmas jumper, it's all good fun isn't it, but I'm not one for those tacky, all singing, all dancing flashing ones, I know some people like to go all out with bell and whistles too but not me, I like a tasteful, classic-style Christmas jumper. And that's what this one is I think. There's just enough pattern on it with the polar bears and trees, and I love the winter off white colour. Everywhere is selling out fast so if you want one you better be quick, I know Primark still had some the other day when I went in but I reckon there'll be a last minute rush with people wanting to get a jumper to wear for the pub on Christmas eve! Can't link it as it's not on the website, but what you see is what you get, so pop into store.

The joggers are from Topshop and are the comfiest loungewear item I have ever owned. SERIOUSLY. You'll find the link for them here. I think I'll be living in these till spring rolls around, and even then I'll probably continue to slob around the house until they fall off me!

Are you starting to wind down a little yet or will you be on the go until the shops shut on Christmas eve?

p.s - Sorry the colour palette in this post is a little, well, bland, but's that's me, I don't like colour much and my bedroom is just grey and white!



  1. Great photos Steph! I love the colour palette, very relaxing! I'm glad to hear you're starting to slow down a little bit and take some time to relax!

    1. Thanks Heather, as I say I'm not one for colour but just thought the all over grey tone was a little too much! :)

  2. Lovely photos, and I'm lusting after those jogging bottoms. They don't have my size in stock. Booo! Vx

    1. Oh no Vicki, what a shame, they're the best, keep trying they might come back in stock! x

  3. Lovely photos Steph and you look so cosy :) Feeling very relaxed now.

  4. I write and homeschool, so I "slob around the house" a lot. You do it more stylishly.

  5. Hope your daughter had a lovely time in France! I'd love to do that!
