Christmas Tag

Everyone celebrates and enjoys Christmas differently, so I thought I would do a little tag on here to go along with this. I love all of these questions, which made it a lot easier to answer! Lets get started -


1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Home Alone and The Santa Clause - have to watch them every year!


2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning always


3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Getting out first cat on Christmas Eve - she had to be called Tinsel!


4. Favourite festive food?
Everything! You get the BEST food at Christmas!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Is it bad that I can't really think of one?! I like them all!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Hmmmm...probably mulled wine...even though I don't drink it myself

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Not really, just normally stay up later and make sure everyone's presents are under the tree ready for the morning

8. What tops your tree?
A very old and very faded robin

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?

A horse! But did get one eventually just not for Christmas

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
 The food! Also, I love having the decorations up.

11. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
New York! Have always wanted to go there but even more at Christmas. The pictures I have seen make it look amazing!

12. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I am possibly the worst present-wrapper ever - never ask me to wrap something for you!

Well, there are my answers - now its your turn! If you decide to do this tag, let me know I would love to read your answers.

Love Laura xx

Train Like An Angel

How amazing was the Victoria's Secret show this year?! How I wish I could have been there in person but at least I got to watch one of the most waited for fashion shows in the world in some way. It was also the first time the show had been done in London and had the largest amount of models of any VS fashion show, which meant even more outfit to look at! That also included seeing a lot more of those super-toned bodies! These models may be blessed with natural beauty, but they do work hard for their bodies and I have found a few exercises that you can do at home that are similar to what the angels do.

Brogini Boots

Now if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I am a massive horsey person and I'm lucky enough to have my own horse. The equestrian world has their own 'fashion', but everything is slightly more practical and made for being in the outdoors. As I do some showing with Bonnie, I needed some new long, black riding boots as I had had my old ones for years and they had practically fallen apart. I got the Brogini Modena Long Boots.

Although these are made from a synthetic material, they look exactly like they are made from high end expensive leather. They are super soft and mould to your leg, which is exactly what you want from long riding boots. Also, as the material isn't that thick, you still have a good feel for your horse and aids can be given well. The sole is strong and thick meaning they are good for all weathers and they feature a good grip which is anti-slip but they are also flexible enough to move with your foot. The full-length rear zip makes them easy to get on and off - even in the smallest of cars/trailers! I love the shape of the top of these boots, they look so professional and clean while in the show ring without being distracting. These boots also feature a tiny button like stud on the outside of each boot with a 'B' for Brogini.
I bought these from Ride Away online and they came within a few days and you could keep track of them while they were on route. They were also packaged up so well and came exactly as they are shown on the website.

I would defiantly recommend these boots to any rider who is looking for something for the show ring at an affordable price.
