Holiday home tour

This Christmas we kept things really simple at home. I didn't get around to decorating our apartment until the beginning of December, which by blogger terms, is so late I may as well have not decorated at all.

I stuck to my naked tree idea and [I think] it turned out really lovely. I decorated our tree with just two strings of lights - a solid set and a string of flashing lights, which ended up being Cora's favourite piece of entertainment. Who needs a babysitter when you have a Christmas tree to entertain a newborn for hours!

After driving Cora around to all her visits over the next couple of weeks [we're already her chauffeurs], I foresee lots of Netflix, eating waaay too much food, having an occasional glass of wine between feeds [#BadMom] and participating in as little physical activity as possible. I hope however you spend the holidays this year, you get to do a lot of what you want and a bit of what you need.

  1. How weird - this only appeared in my blogger reader last night, but I see you posted it on 21st!
    All these pictures look so cosy and your tree looks great with just lights. I saw a video on your Instagram stories and thought how nice the tree looked with the solid set and flashing set - it works really well!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

    1. Aw, thank you Maria! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! And yes, you found out my blogging lie - I backdated this post as I actually only got around to writing it after Christmas. Lies. It's all LIES!
