Festive Holly-cination

…so good, it makes you want to chow down on your own digits – 3D Holly, Matte Cable and Confectionery Sweet Candy Cane... Sweet ez, bru.

I always feel duty bound to go full Balls Baubles to the Wall when this time of year rocks around, as I work in an office and for majority of the time – attempt to appear to conform – like those Lizards that everyone thinks are Snakes… but they’re not. They are in fact, just VERY awkward Lizards. That’s me.

Moving on – I was stuck between the kitschy cute appeal of Confectionery Candy Canes, Nanna endorsed knitwear (itchier looking the better!) and Holly 3D Detailing… and in the spirit of the season (get used to this), have it all. Then I’ll undo the top button on my pants, go find a soft surface to sleep off this GIGANTIC food coma… while gestating a Boxing Day Miracle. #NoRegerts #NoFibre #ChewYourFoodB!tch

This time of year was always when my fellow Raptor-Spawnlings would either be HORRENDOUSLY evil or HORRENDOUSLY sweet to one another – generally because you never knew what was coming next and if it was a “lull” or just general affection. Then BAM you’d be locked in a rabbits hutch, in the BLISTERING heat – at least I had company. Her name was Snowy and she enjoyed the way my hair smelt.

Big families during this time – it’s important to understand the pecking order and how to sidestep it. There is limited supply of everything! So stock up and have a table auction. Raptor A:“I’ll trade you this slice of fruit cake for that friand.” Raptor B:“Throw in that merriagne and you’ve got a deal!”

Get the look – Pinky and Thumb – white gold pearl base and finish with thin/thick diagonal lines. Middle and Index red opaque base, keep layering your knit cable design till it’s fully 3D. Feature, gold base with 3 red pearls in Holly formation and finish with a glitter leaf detail. Voila.

I have literally had people grabbing my hand all week with this look – more hand action than a teenager at Summer Camp… or so I hear, only summer camp I had was with my rabbit. LOL. Legit, people love this look – the 3D to Glitter just makes it POP.

Oh Deyam - 3D Holly Effect AND Glitter. Gurl, nearly too much!

So what you think, Darling?

What’s your experiences with Season shenanigans and TOTAL lack of portion control or SELF CONTROL?
