Hi everyone, hope you’re week is going well! I’m back in New York after the best weekend in New Orleans (have you seen my video diary?) and I’m happy to say I’m straight into Christmas mode. It truly is my favorite time of year – especially since I moved away from home – so I always say, the earlier I can start getting excited -the better. The lead up is always the best part. So in today’s post, I figured I’d share the things I’m most excited for this December…

1. The Dressing Up

I’m not going to lie, one of the things I’m most looking forward to over the next few weeks is the dressing up. I just LOVE it! This gold silk dress arrived last week and I just couldn’t wait to show you. I have lots of fun events coming up here in New York and then the parties & nights out are sure to continue once I get home to Ireland towards the end of the month. So I’ve been on the lookout for some ‘WOW’ pieces…& here is the first of my finds from L.K. Bennett. This beautiful black & gold dress is from their Black Tie Collection and I can’t even tell you how nice it feels on! I absolutely love the high neck and long sleeves & always feel like a million dollars when I wear dresses this length. I styled it with a vintage belt & black boots – but I’ll also definitely be pairing it with heeled sandals & a clutch bag over the next few weeks to dress it up even more. It flows really nicely and the silk material feels so light & comfortable to wear. Such a great investment dress to have in your wardrobe. And the good news? There’s 30% off party wear on the UK site today – so today’s the day to purchase this dress if you love it as much as I do. Check out everything HERE! I couldn’t be more excited for party season to begin!! :)

2. Going home!!

This one is a pretty obvious one! I’ve been living away from home for three years now and I can honestly say that that ‘going home for Christmas feeling’ just NEVER gets old. I get so excited just thinking about arriving into the airport and seeing my parents & Vogue waiting right there. Remember last year’s reunion?

3. Vlogmas

I can’t believe it, but it’s almost that time of year again…Vlogmas!! Incase you don’t know, Vlogmas is where I film what I get upto every day during December and post the video the next day on my Youtube channel. So there will be a new video EVERY DAY from Dec 2nd – 26th. It’s quite a big undertaking but I absolutely loved every minute last year so I can’t wait to start again this Friday!! Youtube and vlogging has been something I’ve loved doing the most in 2017 so it’s the absolute perfect way to end the year. Hope you’re excited too? Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any!

4.Getting my first proper Christmas Tree

Friday (Dec 1st) is also the day I’m going to get my first proper Christmas tree here in New York. A small thing, yes, but I cannot wait!!

5. Christmas in New York

…& finally, nothing makes me more excited than the lead up to Christmas here in New York during the month of December. It’s just something special. I can’t wait to go ice-skating in Central Park, watch the SAKS Light Show a million times, stroll down 5th Avenue to see all the Christmas windows, get hot chocolate & waffles at the Bryant Park Christmas Market, go to Rolf’s for the first time, drink mulled wine in cozy hotels and just take it all in.  December will always & ever be one of my favorite months here!

    I can’t believe that it has been a whole year since your vlogmas! Sounds strange but it feels like you’ve only been on youtube for 5 minutes! xx
