Monki Around | Outfit of the Day

ASOS RIBBED TOP (Very similar here)

I absolutely adore these wide-leg Monki trousers that I picked up on Carnaby Street last month. They're a very thick material with two gorgeous pleats running from the waist band. They come up just above the hip bones and fit so well. I paired them with this top I bought from ASOS a couple of years ago. I love the edgey cold-elbow cut-outs. The tight top worked perfectly with the huge trousers. And as I was Christmas shopping this afternoon I opted for these comfy New Balance trainers. I have basically lived in these the whole cold-season so far! They're so comfortable and just go with everything.

Festive Games Night!

One of my favourite things about Christmas is cosy nights at home with friends, family and a bottle (or two) of mulled wine! So this year I organised a games night with some friends. We ordered take-out, drank mojitos, sat in front of the open fire and played Destination Norwich. As we all live in Norwich it was extra fun for us as we could all spot our favourite places to go on the board!

During game play, you are each drivers for Five Star Norwich taxi rank. You must visit as many of the famous landmarks of Norwich as fast as you can, collecting fares and tips whilst avoiding traffic lights and speeding tickets along the way. The aim of the game is to be the first person with the most money at the end of the shift. That's if you don't run out of fuel or get your drivers licence taken off you!

You must plan your quickest route around the city, based on the destination cards you're provided with. Some of my favourite places you can visit is Jarrolds, Norwich Cathedral, Playhouse and Elm Hill! You have the option to pay and upgrade to a Turbo Taxi which gets you to your destinations in half the time. The player to end their shift first gets an extra bonus of £250, however the ultimate winner is the driver with the most money!

I am super competitive and I got the Turbo Taxi straight away, always avoided an empty fuel tank and was very careful to take the quickest routes to every destination. And... I WON! Which is quite shocking for me as always usually lose games like Monopoly etc. Destination Norwich was so much fun to play and I am definitely taking it to my family home for Christmas Day. It keeps you on your toes as you're constantly trying to find the quickest way to your next destination, while also keeping an eye on the other players! We also found that we learnt new road names that we didn't even know before, haha.

Destination Norwich can be bought in Norwich's famous Jarrolds store (which is absolutely stunning, a really gorgeous building with an amazing make up floor ft. MAC and Jo Malone) along London Street and it can also be bought online here on their website.

I hope you're feeling festive and ready for the big day,
Merry Christmas!
