Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...


Our Christmas tree is up and decorated!  We just need to find the right tree topper.  My fiancé and I looked for a simple star tree topper and couldn't find one anywhere.  It seems like fairies, angels and Santa Claus are the most popular toppers this year.  Boo hoo!  I'll just have to update you guys when I find the right one.  


In the meantime, don't I look snazzy in my Christmas slipper socks?!
(Full outfit details here.)


Again, as you can see I'm very proud of our tree.  
We purchased a huge box of decorations and 250 white LED lights today from a Christmas shop in Douglas Court, to which we added our own personal decorations which are bits and pieces we've collected over the last two-three years.

Let's hope Albi doesn't pee at the tree or steal any of the decorations!  Have you put up/decorated your Christmas tree yet?

Stay Stylish!
xoxo

  1. oh anna! i love your tree, also, i noticed that too, that there were no star tree toppers available, i ended up making my own out of an oversized ornament instead, just to give you an idea, this is just lovely! <3

  2. Awwww. I love your tree and your Christmas socks. I need to pick some up too. LOL I still don't have a proper tree topper yet. I want to find a cute angel but have yet to find anything I like. Loving your tree! You should get a picture frame with Albi's cute little face in it. XOXO

  4. It looks lovely, Anna...and so do you posing with it! Love the red colors...it's the perfect red! I will miss not having a real one with that lovely pine smell this year, maybe I'll just spray some pine freshener! LOL! Enjoy it and your adorable Christmas slipper socks!

  6. hi anna, i'm a daily vlog watcher and todays video gave me some good ideas for jonathon's christmas presents, i know you said you wanted ideas a few days ago, i thought i'd comment here where there'd be a better chance that he wouldn't read this

    1. one of the coffee/hot chocolate/or even tea (as he seems to be into that now) gift sets would be a great present for him

    2. house slippers, even if they aren't the super silly hairy claw footed ones (but it would be the sweetest thing ever if you surprised him and got them for him), i know you said in your gift guide video that he was jealous of the ones you got for you ohma

    3. some really nice gloves, it's crozen in the mornings when he goes out to the car, some good warm leather gloves would be useful to him for years to come

    4. and lastly i thought it would be cute if you could have something made for him, either a tshirt or a mug, that has one of his made up slogans on it, or maybe one with all of them, i know there are a lot of sites that let you design your own

    just thought i'd give you some suggestions, i love buying gifts for people and brainstorming what to get is my favorite part :)

  7. Hi Anna,

    I love your hair when you put it half up, but you've never done a tutorial for it. Do you think you could do a quick tutorial about it on youtube soon?

  8. Haha, I don't think Rugby will pee on the tree because it's fake but we can't put a tree skirt on it because it pulls it apart and eats it... Looks great and so do you!!
