However, there’s no denying that white and red seem made for Christmas (thanks, Coca Cola!).

Attached to it is a little Parazul charm I bought on holiday in the Caribbean. Parazul are one of those companies you see everywhere on a cruise, but at the time there was no way I could drop $100s on a bag, so I bought myself a little charm instead.

And, as well as being a reminder of my holiday, it’s also a nod to my family’s shipbuilding heritage too!

And, finally, my nail varnish is Goldeneye by OPI – in my opinion, the best bright gold varnish for the Christmas season. Perfect if you want to get into the holiday spirit!
