I’m into Day 3 of Dry January and i’ve already cancelled two parties for this weekend because I really don’t want to fall at the first hurdle. It’s not that i’m finding it that hard (yet) but I know it’s something I really need to do so i’m going to make like a hermit crab and hide in my shell as much as possible this month.
When I have discussed Dry January with my friends I have mentioned that i’m doing it to shift the extra pounds that i’ve put on over Christmas, but honestly weight loss is not the real reason i’m doing it. The truth is I need to stop drinking, not permanently but certainly for long enough for me to know that I can.
Christmas is coming up super fast and i’m starting to panic a bit about doing my cards and finishing my Christmas shopping. One thing I am sorted for is my Christmas jumper, I picked up this cute reindeer one from H&M which fits my criteria of not being too thick – after a few glasses of red wine on Christmas Day I know I will be feeling rather flushed and I won’t want anything too hot.
Do you like to wear a super cheesy Christmas jumper or do you prefer to keep it classy and opt for sparkles instead? Either way I have got something for you in my round up from the high street below. These are my twelve favourites, click the green (affiliate) links to shop. Continue reading
