Hi my loves,
Hope you all had a beautiful and restful Christmas. I love this time between Christmas and New Years when the world always seems to sit still for a little bit. The excitement of Christmas is over but the New Year is not yet here and life just seems a little slower than usual. A great time to reset and focus on the year almost gone.
A few weeks ago just before Christmas I took my girls to Lapland in Finland to visit Father Christmas. We flew into Ivalo close to Saariselka and spent a few days immersing ourselves in all the winter activities Lapland has to offer; husky rides, reindeer sledding, searching for the Northern Lights (successfully!) as well as of course seeing Father Christmas. It was minus 20 degrees celsius so truly freezing but the girls were such troopers outside, even when Anoushka lost her glove and was worried about her finger falling off. It made me SO excited for the upcoming ski season; we are going on a few weekend trips to Switzerland early next year as well as week away with the girls in the mountains in February and I cannot wait to get back on the slopes.
I’ve teamed up with Mytheresa to bring you a full ski edit – last year so many of you asked me for a ski edit after our long weekend at the Chedi Andermatt (highly recommend btw and going back in Feb!) and so I decided to do a new edit for this year. Mytheresa always have the best skiwear selection and they also have so many amazing pieces for kids (mini kids edit below…) They are currently also offering a new customer discount which gives you 10% off on a minimum order value of £600 plus free shipping – the last date for the 10% discount is 6th of January and the free shipping ends on the 2nd of January. To avail this discount you can use the code YOUR10.
I always opt for chunky knits for myself which can easily be worn on top of thermals but under a ski jacket/shearling as well as the more skinny pant salopette style that is so much more flattering than a wider pant. I’ve included lots of accessories too including the Max Mara Teddy gloves that always sell out and lots of super cosy boots (if I have cold feet then the rest of me gets cold so it’s really important for me to always make sure I have practical boots.)
Hope you all have a peaceful end of the year whatever your plans are (we are checking into a hotel with the girls for the night to make it extra exciting for them!) and if you are off skiing this year/early next year enjoy
