New Years Resolutions!

So this New Years Eve I am, probably for the first time ever, actually going to a party! I'm mostly excited about the prospect of getting dressed up beforehand to be honest, but isn't that always the best bit? The only part of my outfit I'm sure of just now is the wedges that I mentioned yesterday... so, knowing me, a majority of my time tomorrow will be taken up by staring at my wardrobe trying to conjure up a magical outfit! Anyway, whatever you are all up to tomorrow I hope you have a lovely time welcoming in 2012 :)

Finally getting to the point of this post, I have attempted to make up some long-term New Years Resolutions for 2012, and they are:

Shit, that's quite a lot to try and keep up for a whole year, but I'll try my best. 
What are your resolutions for 2012?

Hey, So today I hit the sales... and got another pair of black wedges (yeah, I think I'm obsessed) from H&M that I absolutely love (although they weren't even on sale!). For some reason I really don't like wearing heels, and usually opt for wedges instead because I find them much comfier and easier to walk/dance in...I also love the way wedges look!
Wedges- H&M
I didn't buy them with any specific occasion in mind (I usually buy shoes on impulse to be honest), but I will probably wear them for New Years Eve - Yay! xo

I know Christmas is a time for eating lots... but I think I win the prize for eating the most! After a whole day of eating crap I managed to top it all off by eating a Lindt chocolate reindeer in 3 minutes, which must be some sort of record. 
Anyway, this isn't a blog about my ever-present food worries, it's supposed to be about fashion! (Although I have strayed from that topic in most of my posts, so maybe The Fashion Unicorn is a misleading title?)
For Christmas I got a looovely Soap & Glory gift set which is absolutely huge!
Soap & Glory bag

It has just about everything you could want from Soap & Glory in it, so needless to say, that's me stocked up on toiletries for the year. The suitcase-esque bag it all came in is also really pretty, so I will have to find some other use for it as it's too nice to hide away in a cupboard all the time!     I also got the Diesel perfume Loverdose which I had been coveting since its release earlier this year, and a Benefit Make up set which I am loving so far!

On Christmas day my parents and I visited my sister, brother-in-law and my niece in the morning which was great (my niece, Lottie, is just under a year old and possibly the sweetest baby ever...although maybe I'm just biased because I'm her auntie!)
Anyhoo, I wore this outfit: 

Dress: House of Fraser; Belt: Joy

It's pretty simple and all quite old pieces, but I'd never worn them all together... and that's what I love about clothes. Even after owning something for years you can still find new ways to wear them :) 
Hope everybody's enjoying their time off! xo

Merry Christmas!

...I have to admit, I really don't feel Christmassy this year at all. I'm not sure if it's the lack of snow or just my age, but there isn't this buzz around that there always used to be at this time! 
I won't be dressing like this...
I am quite looking forward to New Year though, because - although it sounds really cliched - I want to start afresh. I want to turn over a new leaf, and greet every day with hope and optimism for what's to come; because judging by 2011, a lot can happen in one short year. 
Here's hoping 2012 will bring forward new opportunities for everybody! 
Be Optimistic!
Lots of love, Iona xo
