The majority of my Christmas list this year is focused on my trip to Russia at New Year. I am priming myself for the minus 20 degree weather forecast and the inches of snow by stocking up on lots of warm clothing! I can't quite imagine exactly how cold it is going to be as I have never really experienced extreme cold weather. I have never been skiing and all my holidays have revolved around sunshine and the beach, so this is going to be a whole new experience for me! With this in mind, I am asking Father Christmas for some snuggly snow boots and lots of cosy jumpers this year. I have been on the lookout for a super toasty winter coat for a while now and when I found this gorgeous Jasper Conran down-filled coat in Debenhams, I knew it was the perfect piece. It is so, so warm and the hood is so fluffy and cosy. I have never had a really warm coat, and always go for style over substance, but I think this is the perfect combination of being warm and practical, but not looking like a sack of potatoes! I also picked up these gorgeous Miss Kurt Geiger boots from Debenhams which I literally haven’t taken off since I got them. They are perfect for work as they have a slight heel and are super comfy....not sure if they will survive in the Russian snow though!
