Perhaps we didn’t love December. It was the straw that broke 2016’s back, taking away childhood heroes such as Carrie Fisher and George Michael. But we survived it, we got to celebrate Christmas and believe it or not, we even laughed. She Might Be took a well-earned break for the second half of December, but we were still all over the internet, chatting to all of you on social media and collecting our favourite moments of the month. So without further ado…
This trailer for 2016 The Movie was a hilarious way to sum up what has been such a terrible year for so many of us.
The whole Plus is Equals collection was fieeeerce, but this jacket is what dreams are made of.
We’ve been listening to George Michael this month, in honour of the legend. Kissing a Fool is Daisy’s favourite!
Stationery has been our latest obsession, and for many of us that has included bullet journals and planners. We’re in a bunch of planner groups on Facebook and are seriously lusting over some of the spreads people have made.
Speaking of stationery, I’ve been loving the inspiration that I get from watching kwernerdesign on YouTube. She also has a blog and is definitely worth keeping an eye out for if you’re creative – or just aspire to be, like me.
Banned Apparel came up a few times in our collective favourites, from feline tote bags to amazing festive wear. Carrie-Ann loved this Winter swing skirt in particular.
Isha recommended ‘Terrible, Thanks for Asking’, a podcast which she described as ‘a really honest account of accepting that we can’t always be ok all of the time, and that it’s ok’. If you listen to one podcast in January 2017, make it this one!
Of course, December is the month of Christmas sparkle. This Silly Old Sea Dog number actually has glitter on the fabric, and simply screams festive glee. Also, we wouldn’t normally promote a brand who don’t have fully inclusive sizing, but since it’s in a Favourites post I can let you know that this dress has been reduced now that it isn’t Christmas anymore. You’re welcome!
This lucite handbag with gold, silver and copper running through it is absolutely glorious. It has been reduced to only(!) £280 on Etsy, so the price is just as astounding as the bag itself!!
Finally, Radio 4’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Stardust’ was the perfect Winter warmer for cosy December evenings. Both parts are currently available on the BBC website.
