"Posh" hairdo

I treated myself to a spot of pampering earlier this afternoon and got my hair done. Snow was falling, Christmas carols were playing and I was sat in a massaging recliner getting a head massage - it was heaven.
A couple of weeks ago I had seen Victoria Beckham sporting this new hairstyle in a magazine

I really liked it and even though I've never had my hair that short/layered before, I really wanted to try it. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but I think my stylist did a good job of recreating it. I'm no Posh but I did my best posing :)

I'm still getting used to the fact that I won't be able to rely on pulling my hair back on lazy mornings and I'm a little apprehensive about styling it myself for the first time but so far I'm loving the new look!

I've experienced my first English snow the past few days and it's wonderful! It's made me feel so festive and happy :)

Hubby and I went out for a walk in the winter wonderland in the morning and then spent the afternoon warm at home, playing rockband! It really feels like Christmas now...

I'm all ready for my first married Christmas, my second Christmas in England. Bring on the turkey with all the trimmings!

Winter jackets

About a month ago I bought Neil a gorgeous new long wool jacket. Unfortunately I now really want one myself! I have a puffy winter coat and a beautiful leather jacket which I love, but I'd love to add a nice long jacket to my collection if I can find an affordable one. It'd be great for the inevitable office parties and such during the holiday season. I've seen this one and a few other cute womens coats online but I'm not sure if I prefer this more casual, but still nice look or if I want something that is quite formal and dressy looking. I think I'll waiting for the post-xmas sales and let prices make the decision for me!

Sorry for my absence lately! My beloved macbook is suffering from technical difficulties and until I get it fixed I may not be posting much. I promise I will be back soon though and until I am I hope you are enjoying this festive season and all that comes with it :)
