Wishing for snow and OOTD

Hello everyone,

I'm still sick and miserable and as a result I don't want to do anything other than lay in bed and sleep. :( Even putting makeup on in the morning is a chore, and if I didn't promise myself to look pretty every day, I'm not so sure I would be even bothering with it. But being me, I have to use the brightest prettiest color everyday, hoping it will lighten up my mood and help me recover faster. What? You didn't know that good mood has healing properties? ;P

Another thing that I'm not-so-quietly wishing for is MORE snow. It seems like Suffolk always misses out on snow when just an hour up north (Norwich) they are covered in it. All we get is few flurries, maybe mini blizzard for a whole 2 minutes... if we're lucky an inch. Yes, snow is annoying to drive it and I will be the first one to say I can't drive in it, but I still want some SNOW! I haven't seen it in almost 10 years now, and I miss snow a lot (that time I went to Michigan for 2 days in winter doesn't count). My friend in Sheffield is making snow men on her balcony, I want to do it too! On the bright side, maybe we still will get some with the way things started out.

Last weekend I went to local Christmas Fair in Bury St. Edmunds and the  moment we got there it started snowing like crazy! I was in Lyuba heaven. :) Suddenly it felt so festive and Christmasy. I got myself some mulled wine (my favorite European thing) and walked around with the hugest grin ever. Sadly the greatness didn't last that long, after we got done with the fair it stopped snowing and the sun came out and all the snow melted lol.

 I got this cape from Jane Norman maybe a week earlier. I was in Norwich with my husband, we walked in to Castle Mall and Jane Norman was having 25% sale on EVERYTHING in the store. I took a look and it was love from the first sight. Hat is from Debenhams, sweater/cardigan  and leggings are from TJMaxx (mom works there and she always sends me clothes and she has an AMAZING taste, 99% of what she sends not only fit me, but also become my favorite), sweater-dress is from shop in Lille, France and boots are from JCPenny I think. Gloves are also from TJMaxx, got them years ago in Florida but never worn them there. Gloves are sold all over the place in FL in 'winter', but do we really need them? I only bought these because they were so cute and I had to have them. Who knew I would be going to England shortly after?
