I cannot believe how quickly Christmas has come and gone, December really flew by didn't it?! The weekend before Christmas, Justin and I ventured up to the Cotswolds to spend the night with my dad, his partner, and my little brother. As my dad lives out of the country, it was nice to spend some time with him around the holidays, as we don't see each other often. Justin and I both hadn't been to the Cotswolds before so it was a lovely little adventure! It's such wonderful place, especially around Christmas time, as the villages are so beautifully decorated.

We are now thoroughly in the party season, with sparkles, glamorous outfits and very difficult to walk-in shoes galore! If you're still hunting for for a little something special to wear this festive season, or you're looking for a New Year's Eve party dress early (I say early, but I always cannot believe how quickly NYE comes around after Christmas!!) I have a sparkly little number to show you, which you just might like.
I bet you wouldn't have guessed, that this dress is actually from...Bonprix! I would definitely have said Boohoo or Missguided, so I'm pretty impressed with Bonprix. The Shimmering Wrap Dress* is available in pewter (which I'm wearing) and black, in a size 10-32. It's super stretchy, with a wrap over top, and long sleeves - perfect if you'll be venturing out somewhere wearing it. I would definitely recommend sizing up if you don't want it more fitted on the bottom half, as it was a little smaller than I had anticipated. For a smoother silhouette (if VBO isn't your kinda thing), just add some shape wear, otherwise - forget the shape wear and be comfortable like me! I found it really comfortable and actually quite warm, however, it does ride up when you're sat down, so just a note that if you're taller (I'm 5ft7 for reference), you may need tights or something underneath, but if you're happy to -potentially- flash your fellow partygoers then this is a winner!

I don't know about you, but I've just started to feel mega festive! Christmas tree is up, flat is decorated and Christmas cards have been posted, so I'm feeling organised, and ready to party! I ventured out this week to pick up a few gifts and wore the cutest Christmas jumper (kindly sent to me from Yours) ever last week, so I had to show you all!
