(Skirt, ASOS; Shoes, Giuseppe Zanotti c/o Shopbop; top, ancient, no idea)

Wow, ever since I realised I have nothing to post about here any more, I’ve been posting a LOT, huh? I bet you’re all thinking, “God, I hope Amber’s going somewhere without Internet access for Christmas, because that’s probably the only thing that will shut her up now…”

Well, I AM heading to my parents’ place for Christmas (they DO have Internet access, of course, but I promise not to abuse it), so this is my official “Goodbye, farewell, have a Happy Christmas!” message. To help me spread tidings of comfort and joy, here is a photo of Rubin in a holiday sweater:

Rubin in a sweater

Don’t worry, he only had to wear it for long enough to get the photo. And he was almost hysterically excited by it, for some reason. Maybe he secretly wishes he was a personal style blogger?

Or, you know, maybe not.

(He’s been bathed and groomed since this was taken, by the way. Winter is a hard time for him – and by “him” I mean “us” – because every time he goes outside, he returns looking like he’s been dragged through a hedge backwards. Sometimes I think he probably HAS…)

Here is what he’s getting for Christmas, and seriously, you guys, DON’T TELL HIM:

It was labelled “Sam the Dog”, so it will be one of the few toys Rubin owns which has a REAL name, and isn’t called something like “Ponky” or “Bluddy” or whatever. I cannot WAIT to see his face when he opens this on Christmas day. He’ll either be SUPER DUPER EXCITED by it, or he’ll completely ignore it in favour of ripping the wrapping paper it came in to shreds. Maybe both, actually.

Anyway, that’s more than enough from me for now: I hope you all have a very happy holiday, and that you, too, get something as exciting as a SAMTHEDOG under your tree!

Happy Christmas!


  1. Hi Amber great outfit as always.. i wanted to know if Shopbop Shoe/cloths sized are in UK or US?! and what size were your Giuseppe Zanotti wedges?!

  2. And I shall wish you a Happy Christmas on this blog too!!

    TBH, I want a Rubin-a-like for xmas but I don’t think the 2 cats would like it.

    Mind you I need to be careful what I wish for…many years ago I wanted a kitten for xmas and I ended up with a kid instead. (Obv after 9 months…wasn’t a Mary and Joseph moment or anything!) 😀

  3. I love the way Rubin is doing the ‘glance-back-over-your-shoulder’ pose that all the celebrities do for the paparazzi!! Like this: 2009-daytime-emmy-awards-fashion-backside-499×500.jpg


  4. hehe Rubin is really cute in these pics! And I already told you how much I love your skirt and your shoes!
    Merry Christmas! Have a fantastic time at your parents’ house! 🙂
