Review: Mcdonalds Festive Menu (2016)

Tis the season for over indulging - and mine and dad's already indulgent habit of having Mcdonalds frappes, turned into a full on feast, when confronted with which option to choose from the festive menu.
Although the drinks and few other regular options come with Chrsitmassy packaging, there's a 6 piece strictly festive menu. We've gone for everything but the burgers, (said burger reviews here) with the calorie justification being a blogpost. My favourite excuse.

Weardrobe | Nothing New November


I took part in 'Nothing New November' this year, since 'No buy June' was such a success.
To put the focus on friends and family, for the festive season coming up. To take Black Friday and it's extended family, completely out of the equation. & to enjoy the bounty of belongings I have already. The later has inspired a new outfit series - Weardrobe. A more informal way of sharing my outfits; rambling limited, play on words encouraged.

November 2016 turned out to be a month of Topshop and Tesco.


Thrifted Topshop
This cable knit cardigan was another item I crushed on, whenever I saw someone wearing it - luckily, Instagram wasn't around then, or the prompting may have caused me to do something I would later regret. It took some time for the price to drop on ebay, but now it's mine, my cheaper alternatives seem cheap, and unnecessary clutter. It complete's the story of the 3 cream cable knits - to static, too itchy, just right - and shows that sometimes you just can't beat the original. Just like with my denim shirt, and at £15 all together, quarter of the cable knits original price!


Talking of TOPSHOP - New, No sale, WHO AM I? Love struck that's what. Price (& that it's current) -tag, is worthy of a full post, but I can confirm that TOPSHOP does denim shirt's right.



Let's be Aviator-in ya
This Aviator Jacket is probably one of my oldest items, yet it never struggles to stay in style come A/W. It's a little smaller than my current preference, but next level cosy, so can withstand the cold even in lighter layers; another F&F sale, for £15. The grey v-neck fine knit beneath it, is newer to me (early oct), but not new in style. For being Primark originally, it's surprisingly soft - so even secondhand from Rennie Grove Hospice Charityshop Outlet - in a tried and approved style, £2 didn't seem to steep.
Believe it or not, these jeans are the pair I featured in an OOTD here, that have lost their coating - I didn't know they did that? They have been well worn - and I have since thrifted a replacement pair that actually fit a bit better - so I think these will be retired. Hopefully holding off on the tumble dryer with take 2, with prevent a de-coating repeat.
