Christmas Jumpers!

I’m not sure if you guys know BUT I ABSOLUTELY BUM CHRISTMAS!

I am one of those people who embrace Christmas in all it’s cheese, tack and tinsel. The more glittery, silly and sparkly the better I say. In my opinion, Christmas trees should NEVER be colour co-ordinated, they should look like Father Christmas has thrown up on them. As a result of my passion for all things of the Fa La La La La season, I am beyond thrilled that Christmas jumpers have had such a renaissance in the last few years.

I confess. I have four. DO NOT JUDGE ME YOU DON’T KNOW MY LIFE.

All four make me look like a bellend. Predictably. One makes me look like Father Christmas (sans beard), one has a snowman with a removable nose, one has ACTUAL bells on it (which I love, because then when I say “I’ll be there with bells on” I actually am) and one has built in fairy lights. SWAG.

However, because I am a mature and responsible adult (HAAAAAAAAAAA), I figured it was probably about time I had one which was slightly more sophisticated, so LEAPT at the kind offer from the lovely folk at New Look to send me one over.

They’ve got a great selection there, a mixture of lovely and silly, and in the end I opted for this SNUGGLY LITTLE BLUE DELIGHT.

I just J’ADORE this pale blue colour, it feels wintery without yielding to the usual red/green combo. It’s also THE SOFTEST THING IN THE WORLD. Given that I’m pretty much living at a theatre backstage at panto at the moment, this oversized lovely is proving to be the perfect thing for snuggling into between shows to keep warm in the dressing room.

Oh and just fyi, my make-up and hair is like that because I’m playing Tinkerbell. It’s not my usual festive look. OR IS IT?! (It is.) (No but seriously I am playing Tinkerbell.) (But also I am gay for glitter.)

Go forth and don those Christmas Jumpers! TIS THE BLOODY SEASON AFTER ALL!

Today is also officially Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children, so if you’re wearing your favourite festive garment today, do text the word ‘WOOLLY’ to 70050 to donate £2, and even better, for every pound raised, the government will DOUBLE it!


New Look sent me this jumper to review, but if I didn’t love the arse off it I wouldn’t have written about it! x
