Christmas Jumper Day.
After spending the day working in the crazy world of retail last Friday, I was whisked down to Brighton by my very own prince charming where I was greeted with the beautiful sights of stunning Christmas lights in the streets, cosy pub fireplaces and a glass of Prosecco. First we met with some family in a nearby pub and caught up and then we checked into a quaint little cottage that went by the name of Bright Helm Not only did this place provide the perfect base for our mini festive break complete with its very own Christmas tree, but its prime location also placed us within walking distance of The Coal Shed restaurant were the food was absolutely sublimed and delivered both in substance and presentation.
A wonderful mini break.
Iced banana parfait – pecans, malt, dulce de leche
Just one Prosecco, give it to me.
The beautiful tree at ‘Bright Helm’.
Sadly, my break was cut short due to other commitments. However, that being said it really was the perfect way to recharge my batteries just in time for the build up to Christmas and I am grateful for the precious time that I got to spend with Al and his family.

With ‘Christmas jumper day’ just around the corner (December 16th) I decided to set myself the task of searching my local high street for the cutest Christmas jumpers. Now I will confess, I didn’t jump on this bandwagon until last year, but I am so excited to wear my festive jumpers this year. If you don’t already know ‘Save the Children’ hold this event each year and you can help them raise money for children in poverty by donating £1 either to your local school, youth group or directly to them online.
Unfortunately, there was a short supply of the annual Christmas jumpers today, but if you check out your local Supermarket or Online then you should still be able to find something festive to wear. My personal favourites this year include Next, Primark, Tesco’s and Boohoo. If you would like to purchase any of the gorgeous picks from above, then all you have to do is click on the picture and it will take you directly to the site – Happy Shopping.
Will you be getting involved this year with ‘Christmas Jumper Day’? I would love to see your Christmas Jumper Selfies! Happy hump day.
