Why go out at all? We don’t know about you, but there is nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa, lap dog snoring, hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows and whipped cream (and maybe sprinkles too), log fire crackling away and a good book in hand on a cold winters eve. So why would you want to spoil all that well deserved self indulgence by going out to the Christmas party that your creepy work colleague is going to. We say stay at home and pamper yourselves because you have been nice alllllllllllll year. Here are some ideas on how to spoil yourself rotten.
Lennox Pyjama Top and Lennox Pyjama Trousers – This perfectly comfortable yet beautifully stylish pair of pyjamas are just perfect for slipping into whilst cuddled on the sofa with a good book.
Take Six Girls by Laura Thompson – One of the most recent books to be published about the imitable Mitford sisters. The history of this Aristocratic family is full of mystery, intrigue and lots and lots of drama. One sister openly adored Hitler, one became a novelist and one was a fascist to name just three. This book written by Laura Thompson is a great little read about the beautiful and very stylish Mitford’s.
By Terry Eye Designer Palette – To read about such glamorous sisters in your uber glam pyjamas, then you must be dressed to the nines from tip to toe. Why not try a smokey eye in these glorious colours from By Terry make-up. Team with super thin arched eyebrows and fluttering eyelashes for that ultimate 1930’s look.
Agatha Robe and Agatha Nightgown – Deliciously decadent and oh so glam, why would you possibly want to get out of this gorgeous little set when you could be at home wearing this! Remember our blog post about silk? Well silk is one of those magical fabrics that keeps you warm in cold weather and keeps you cool in hot climates. So this set is surprisingly warm, especially when tucked up by a roaring log fire.
Hedy’s Folly by Richard Rhodes – Once described as the most beautiful woman in the world, did you realise that Hedy Lamarr was also a bit of a bright spark? What better way to while away the hours in your Agatha night set whilst reading about the mega brainy beauty. Without Hedy, there would be no GPS, Wifi or Bluetooth, QUELL HORROR! Thinking about it, how would you be reading this blog post without her! Just goes to show you should never judge a book by their cover.
Dita Von Teese for MAC – Well we couldn’t not include this pocket sized must have in our stay at home guide. Queen Dita has only gone and brought out a brand new lippy to add to our make-up bags. Swipe a slick of this perfect red lip colour over your pout so you can pretend to be Hedy Lamarr whilst reading about her and looking fabulous in your Agatha night set.
So there you have 6 reasons to stay at home and pamper yourself this holiday season. Just which book should we read first?!
Lots of Love
