What I’m living in: December edition

I think we all go through those phases where you buy something new and you wear it to death, right? Well, here’s a few things I’m living in that are keeping me warm and toasty right now.

 

 

1. Matalan Funnel Neck Jumper and these (crumpled) jeans from ASOS.

Matalan Funnel Neck Jumper

I’ve never been a Matalan shopper, and I can’t even remember exactly why I clicked onto their website a few weeks ago, but BOY am I glad I did. This jumper. Is the best thing in the entire world. It’s warm as hell, so amazingly soft and it only cost £14. I would highly advise you all go out and buy it right now.

ASOS Green Ridley Jeans

Now, ya gurl’s got a big booty. It’s not a complaint, and I’m not hinting for you to tell me it’s not. I’m stating a fact. So jeans-wise, my options are a) high-waisted, b) high-waisted, or c) you guessed it, high waisted. ASOS have a really amazing collection of high waisted jeans that hug you in aaall the right places. A guy who worked in Asda once stopped me to ask me where my jeans are from, because his wife also has a big butt and struggles to find nice jeans. I took it as a compliment.

 

 

2. These leggings, also from Matalan.

Keeping on the same theme… when I’m at home, I pretty much live in leggings. And what’s the downfall of a low-quality legging? All together now… a see through butt. That’s just the worst. These leggings are absolutely amazing. They’re SO thick and tight, it’s a dream to wear them. They also hold their shape really well, which is another big must-have for me. Plus, they’re £14 freaking quid! As if they couldn’t already get any better.

 

 

 

 

3. These tea light holders

My favourite tea light holders

 

 

Well, clearly I’m not living in them, but I bought someone a book about hygge for Christmas, and before wrapping it I had a read through. There was a whole chapter dedicated to candles, and lately I’ve been feeling that whole ~candle vibe~ so I’ve been gathering a few cute tea light holders. These pictured are from Yankee Candle (it’s a wax burner), Matalan and from Galeria Kaufhof in Frankfurt. I managed to get hold of a candle lantern yesterday from Waitrose too (not pictured here) – and they’re half price! YAS!

 

 

 

 

 

4. This Casa Zilli Candle: Basilico

Aldo Zilli created this amazing range of candles based upon on ‘The Italian Herb Garden’, and they’re seriously so amazing. I smelled the Pomodoro scent not long ago and it smells just like tangy tomato vines. So vibrant and fresh.

I have the Basilico scent, and I walked into my room earlier and was just overwhelmed by the smell of basil, aka the King of Herbs. It was incredible – and I’ve not even lit the candle yet! That’s how seriously amazing this candle is. It’s going to be a Christmas gift to the house, and I cannot wait to light it if it already smells so bloody wonderful.

 

 

These are my December faves – and I would love to know what yours are too.

Until next time,

Emily
