When I arrived home for Christmas, the second thing I did, after put the kettle on of course, was have a look through the post I'd received in my absence. Mostly things like bank statements and "What's On at *insert gallery here*" memos, I also had a couple of red slips meaning I could head to pick up some early presents from the sorting office. The next morning we headed straight down there, I collected them, put them in my mum's car, and promptly headed off to London for a few days of solid drinking, eating, and watching Love Actually. After that, I headed back home for christmas eve drinks, and then christmas day food, and by the time boxing day rolled round and when I put this skirt on for the first time it, unsurprisingly, didn't fit. Cue a promise to never touch carbs again which lasted a whole couple of hours, before deciding to stop being so melodramatic and have the pasta. I find dieting difficult (can you tell? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only blogger who's not a size six, and this is something I'm acutely aware of) as I'm of the "want what you can't have" tribe, so denying myself a whole food group would never work. Instead, I'm making a conscious effort to cook myself more healthy meals, take salads to work for lunch every day so that I'm not tempted by the frankly amazing cheese and ham croissants, and force myself to like eggs. So far, so good, apart from the slight hiccup when Carmen and I ended up at das neue Kubitscheck, but when they have cakes like the one below, surely it's ok to treat yourself a little?

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth.

Munich's English Gardens are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Even in Winter, when the fountains are covered and, let's be honest, it's bloody freezing, they still look picturesque against the steely sky. Now that the christmas markets have vacated every free space (although I did find one hanging around at Isartor - did they not get the memo?), Munich's back to its much calmer self, and Carmen and I arranged to meet for coffee and discuss our christmas breaks. For the occasion I wore my favourite smock dress (which is now in the sale!), with my panama hat which nearly flew away when boarding at Stansted, and the cutest little sparrow ring from Jana Reinhardt, all in varying shades of blue, suitable for the wet weather.

Don't forget whose legs you're on.

There are two types of people: those who go shopping on boxing day, and those who don't. I fall into the former category, and boy was I glad to see this jacket in the Topshop sale! Jacket of dreams, and I could justify it as being a sensible purchase as it does miraculously keep me warm, unlike 95% of the rest of my wardrobe. So, of course, I left it in England on my return to Germany. The hat, however, did make its way across the sea in the form of a camera bag, its soft, fleecy lining serving a dual purpose of keeping me toasty and my tech in one piece, a good all-rounder. Superdry's not a store I normally head into (although their male shop assistants do catch my attention), but after heading to their press day last year I can wholeheartedly recommend them for keeping your extremities warm in times of need/January.
