 Hey lovelies :)
First and foremost, can I just apologise for the lack of posts, christmas is such a stressful season and Paloma and I still haven't bought any of our presents yet! Help! I think a speedy trip to oxford street is the only way to resolve this, we're not complaining.

The decorations are up in both of our households, if you follow our Instagram, you'll be able to see lil' snapshots of that :) Mine probably is a bit eccentric due to the fact that Paloma and I are hosting a christmas drinks round mine for a few friends on Friday, its all dressy so we both are clueless on what to wear…again…help!

With a week left, anyone got any plans or stressing like us about Christmas?!

P.S - Little music feature - On the weekend, we went to the O2 with our friend Eileen to watch/mosh to Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Fighters and Swim Deep. It was actually incredible, definitely give them all a good long listen as they're all so talented! 

Lots of love, Jess xxx

Hey all!

Here is a very snug outfit post, jumpers are the way forward from now on, as are Christmas songs, hot drinks and several packs of tissues.

So how is Christmas prep coming along? My tree is up and the first present is wrapped and under the tree- although I still have most of my Christmas shopping to do, which I am kind of dreading! Has anyone got any cute gift ideas?

Loads of love,

And I believe this costume party is over, before it gets started

♫ Costume Party - Two Door Cinema Club 

Hello lovelies,
sorry it's been a little while, we've both come down with the winter cold that everyone seems to be getting which has resulted in us taking numerous days off school to recover. We've also been trying to catch up on sleep after a little bit of a mad weekend in Bristol. On the weekend, Paloma and I trekked up to Bristol on a two and a half hour coach journey, as we were invited to her sisters 20th birthday. 

It was lovely to see both of our sisters, for those who don't know, our sisters are also best friends who are living together at uni this year, weird huh?! Well it was a weird and wonderful weekend, checking out the black friday sales with Paloma bagging a pair of gorgeous burgundy boots and me snapping up a leopard print fur coat - I literally look like a bear :)

Later on, Isabella (Paloma's sis) hosted a 'music title' themed fancy dress flat party. Paloma decided to go as Primal Scream's 'Country Girl' by pairing a cute little apron, wicker basket and little frilly socks to create a subtle costume. I decided to come as Oh Atoms!'s 'Sugar Mouse' with my hair in plaited buns, typical whisters, over the knee socks, white gloves and a string of candy canes, which were all gone by the evening.

Bristol is great this time of year as they have a really cute german market by Cabot Circus, it really gets you in the christmas spirit!

Happy Birthday Izzy :)

Loads of love, Jess xxx

Hey guys!
The Christmas countdown has officially begun and what better time to kick start the festive posts on ...cos it's the bee's knees than today! Because-sorry to be cheesy- but Christmas time really is the bee's knees!
These are some photos taken on Friday when Jess and I made a spontaneous visit to Oxford Street for a teeny but of shopping, but more importantly, to make our first trip to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I cannot describe just how excited we were whilst walking around the stalls and rides. Children on Christmas morning doesn't even do it justice!
If you are needing some festive spirit there is no better place to go. With the bright lights, sweets and waft of waffles and mulled wine, its Christmas in a park!
Loads of love, Paloma

Now dance like a dandelion, in the wind, on the hill, underneath the pines...

Hey my lovelies,
It's so very nearly December and with the smell of cinnamon and spiced apple is already drifting through my house, yes, I've been baking. In this quick lil' post, we thought w'd both style a collar while layering up as many thermals an jumpers we could find. We both went for different looks, but both quite smart and cutesy. Paloma, although she hates ginger with a passion, popped some gingerbread stud earrings on her collar tips to give that 'waiting for Christmas' twist :)
I decided to go for a pinafore and 'old school' t-bar shoes, which remind me of my primary-school days.

With UCAS so very nearly done for me, it's becoming more and more real that i'll be going to university next year (fingers crossed). It's ridiculously exciting but such a daunting prospect and I really don't want to think about leaving my friends. Enough sadness though, I cant wait for this new chapter in our lives to start.

Before we're off we've got to go on a girls holiday! We're all planning on going to Benicassim Festival in Barcelona next summer, anyone got any plans...we know its horrifically far in advance, but it's cheaper this way and we can't retain our excitement.
