Christmas is fast approaching — as it does so every year, and I’m SO excited! Like many others, I adore Christmas, and I’ve come to appreciate it more and more in the past few years because of all the travel I’ve been doing. It’s such a personal time of year, one filled with love and laughter, with your nearest and dearest. And honestly, I feel like I become a child again on December 25th. In my family, my mum and dad go crazy with the cooking and they whip up a massive feast. My mum scurries around the kitchen while you’ll find my dad roasting on the barbie (barbecue for my international friends). My sister and I deck the house in every Christmas trinket you can think of. All the while, Mariah Carey plays on repeat in the background, of course.
Christmas is more than a day, it’s a feeling. So when Cotton On presented me with their new Christmas Summer collection, I was so keen to create a story that conveyed what Christmas means to me, personally. This collection really resonates with me. It’s so joyful, and when I wear these pieces, I feel so amazingly extra, just like on Christmas day. Also, there’s nothing like fresh new pyjamas, especially on Christmas!
And because Christmas is so personal, you can customise your own Robe with Cotton On. I have a ’T’ on mine. So now, it’s mine only! (or anyone else whose name also starts with T, hehe!)
This was one of the most fun shoots to create. I hope you enjoy! Let me know what Christmas means to you in the comments!
