7 fabulous Fashion and Frank Xmas Facts and one very silly pic

Me thats Fashion for the purposes of this piece

1.  I love Xmas - presents, food, sparkle, parties - missing the overall point, maybe, but hey it definitely is a point

2.  Did i mention presents

3.  'It is in the giving and not the receiving' no in my house it is pretty much in the receiving (lol)

4.  The ability to wear totally and utterly OTT outfits and not appear silly - I know year round thing but this is the silly season so you really can go to town - bad taste has left the building

5.  The perfect excuse to wear sequins (with everything)

6.  The perfect excuse to have your face done by Mac and actually wear it - because totally OTT makeup is a pre-requisite in fact it is a festive obiligation

7. And most importantly a day to remember just how lucky you are to have the very special people/person in your life and i guess that to me really is the point xx

Franks Facts :

1.  He is a dog and he really does not know it is Xmas

2.  Frank likes xmas - why - i like it and he is a bit of a Mummy's boy

3.  Frank likes xmas - why - Leo is coming, Leo is four, Leo gives Frank lots of sausages

4.  Frank, like Mr Fashion and Frank, will not wear his Xmas getup - he trys to tear his to pieces, i fear Mr would like to too ....

5.  Frank does not find charity in his heart and is not kind to his feline brothers, Matthew, Marmite and Chicken

6.  Frank will be bullied by the eldest feline brother - why - because he can

7.  Frank bless his heart knows that every day he loves and cherishes those that love him and that really is the point of him xx

  2. Awwww.... This is such a funny, sweet and wonderful post to read! I think, Oscar is the one in our family who gets the most out of Christmas... He gets presents (lots, toys AND yummies), he gets to walk (lots and in woods), he gets to spend ALL his day with mummy AND daddy, and, of course, he gets lots of chicken on Christmas day! :)
    And we just relax.... although I do hope there'll be a chance to dress up and go out, so want to wear my LOTR paciotti booties...
    Love the card and the boots you are wearing, the radiator curves in nicely. :)

  16. Claire, loved the card and the facts! Especially, your points n. 2 and n.3, I'm definitely on your side. Is Mr. Fashion & Frank/Santa riding the slid?!

    ReplyDelete
  17. NJaPD - he sure is and yes i am rather with points 2 and 3 - lets hope the powers that be are listening xx

    Mary Jo - now that would have been very creative - that is just our photoshop cutout skills i am afraid - or Franks rather odd paws.....no it is the more obvious towel rail - but next year i might be calling for ideas xx

  26. I wish I could be more like Frank getting the most out of life. I will say you don't need the holidays to look utterly fabulous - you do that just walking to your local pub, that's why your blog is one of my faves!

  34. I read your comment on jewelry post by Little Rus and I was wondering if you are talking about the Pomellato ring...if yes, I love it as well!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I agree, I was just pissed off by the mean and not even subtle request of a tip....

    ReplyDelete
  36. do you know NJaPD i dont know what it is called - it is brand new next season Diane Kordas i saw it at the Matches press day and again at the Coutts do - it is a square, rose gold with black diamonds all around the square which are believe it or not upside down - so not at all traditional but quite amazing - i really hope i get it then i will show you - Mr is very generous so i have everything crossed xx

    Francesca i cannot believe they asked for a tip i am still sooooo shocked - appalling not to mention illegal - i would just covet my boots and that totally fab Chanel bag you had on today which is gorge and i am also rather envious of xx

  49. Claire: It was the trip that went wrong from start to finish! No hubs - he's having a barrel full of troubles just now but I had a job on and had fun anyway.
    Oh lucky you at getting all the pre sale invites, I get the odd one but am never down to be able to use them.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh Tabs we all have trips/days/weeks like that, glad you made the most and had a good time - my motto in life that one. I know i love a pre-sale - got the shoes - they will be appearing soon - bit diff to yours but half price was calling xx

    Thank you Skippy i am sure Frank would agree x

    On its way Francesca x

    In fact thanks all - i am sorry i am not making it over to say thanks in person all the time at the mo but i very much appreciate you taking the time and i promise when life calms down to do likewise xx
