Ginger Mum column: Frolic in these frocks

Lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum meets a Love Island star and suggests what you should be wearing at your upcoming glitzy Christmas party.

Merry Jingle Bells everyone!

Eeeeek, how has this come around so fast? ‘Tis the season to be stressed out but one thing you don’t need to worry about is your dress for the Christmas party as I have a few ideas up my sparkly sleeve.

For the young ‘uns (well anyone who can rock it really) the lovely Gabby from Love Island who I met up with recently has teamed up with Quiz to launch her own collaborative collection and there are some cracking glitzy pieces in there – this gold and black number being my own personal favourite.

If you are LBD all the way, Debenhams at intu have loads of great brands under their roof and some great bargains around too.

Their figure forgiving Martina Dress from Studio 8 is down to a cracking half price right now. Michael Kors has a gorgeous chic black number which won’t allow for too many mince pies but nothing a good pair of Spanx can’t handle.

So chic, with a flute sleeve twist, this is a wardrobe classic which will more than earn its keep. If you’d rather put your vamp stamp on the office do, go bold as a lady in red as River Island have a plethora of sexy options, ranging from petite to plus size.

Back to family now, and key touches I have sorted for the kids are their advent calendars and Christmas Eve boxes. I’ve ordered these and some other cute bits from the Portable North Pole range which allows you to make personalised messages to keep that Christmas magic well and truly alive.

I got mine at, but they have the range at John Lewis too. So the Tesco delivery slot is booked, the festive PJs are ready – all that remains is for you to pop the cork on the festive fizz, get the Christmas PJs on and relax!

Thanks so much for all your support, your lovely messages and emails since I joined the Celebrate:MK team this year. Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful, safe and healthy New Year!

Love Amanda x
