Santa Baby


Firstly, Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you’re all ready and excited for the holiday! It’s been a crazy week for me actually and not one that was ideal leading up to Christmas. It started with the bad cold that I had and told you about, which then led to an awful cold sore which I got on Saturday, just as I was spending a week with Adam. A week with Adam, just before Christmas, and no kissing? It wasn’t great at all. Then because of the cold sore I ended up getting hives as well, and on top of that there’s numerous other things that keep going wrong and are worrying as well. I just hope those situations can sort themselves out as they are out of my control, but it never stops me worrying unfortunately. Now that most of the bad things are out the way, I’m hoping Christmas day might actually be ok, lol.

Anyway, Adam and I shot these Christmas photos a little while ago ready for this blog post! I posted to my social media a couple of times and had you vote for what costume you wanted me to wear this year, which was between my Elf outfit and this Mrs. Santa costume, and this one won! It was lucky that it did actually as I teamed up with American Tourister as well and it was a perfect match. I have their Skytracer 4 Wheel Cabin Baggage Spinner Suitcase in Formula Red. How cool is it? I was definitely doing the job of Mrs. Santa as inside the suitcase were some festive gifts which were perfect for my family. So off I went, delivering my presents in style with my name in glitter and snowflakes across my new suitcase! Doesn’t get more festive than that does it? Maybe it’s an update on Santa’s sleigh! I know I’m going to be using this for my Summer holidays as well as I’ve always wanted a smaller suitcase on wheels.

As I didn’t want to make this outfit the same as the one I did in 2014, I paired it with thigh high boots (similar here) and some tights this time, plus a black choker to give it some edge. I must admit that I did get a few smirks and chuckles from passers by when Adam and I were doing this shoot though, but hey, at least it made them smile! So I wont be posting again until the 28th as I’m taking a few days off for the holidays, but I will be back then with a post on Christmas with photos so I’m sure you will enjoy it. As always, I’m looking forward to your lovely comments. Let me know everything about your Christmas plans! Lorna xx.

P.S. – I saw that ALLSAINTS have 20% off as well, which I’m going to be taking advantage of!

    Lorna, your Santa outfit is adorable… I am glad to hear you made passerby’s smile xox… The suitcase is very cute, I too am looking for one like this as they are so much easier to pull or push then carry πŸ™‚

    I wish you a very Merry Christmas, I hope that you will have good and happiness now in the coming year xox

    Lorna you look totally fabulous as Mrs Santa, and I love this outfit! You’ve accessorised the costume really well to add your own personal touches, and I love the red suitcase with your name on it. This is a very sophisticated Mrs Santa look, and definitely very modern! I love the images and the backdrop, and the details you’ve captured.

    I’m sorry to hear of the recent mishaps which caused you a stressful week. I hope you have a lovely Christmas and everything works out. I hope you enjoy a well-deserved break. I’m having a low-key Christmas in London, and I’m excited to have this time off.

    Thanks so much for inspiring me throughout this year, not only with your gorgeous outfits, but most of all for being an exceptional person who’s always ready to show compassion to others.

    Lots of love Saba xx

      That’s so sweet of you, Saba, honestly so kind. That made me smile when I read the last paragraph from you. I really hope you enjoy your holiday off too and it’s always been a pleasure speaking to you this year and getting to know you better, you are a genuinely kind, humble, and thoughtful lady xx.

      • December 31, 2016 / 9:57 pm

        Gosh that is so sweet of you Lorna! That truly means a lot to me, and I’m appreciative of your constant support and friendship! xx

          Of course! xx.

      Thanks, Idu!

    As expected, a good job on what would otherwise be a fairly standard outfit.

    Also, someone hit my site this week looking for “lorna burford sexy.” He should have come here first.

    • December 27, 2016 / 3:12 am

      Thank you! That’s funny you had that search term! I get that one along with a few others that shouldn’t be spoken of, gosh knows what these readers think they’re going to find with some of the terms used, ha ha!

    • December 27, 2016 / 3:12 am

      Thank you!

    Dear Lorna, first of all, I hope you are feeling better now and get well soon.
    Your outfit looks amazing, very christmassy. I do like the carrier bag very much, cool that you’ve personalised it.

    If I may ask you I am having two pairs of wellies in mind. One pair are black tall hunters and the other are blue rain boots. What do you think is better for me?

    I hope that I haven’t bothered you too much and happy holidays.

    • December 27, 2016 / 3:13 am

      Thank you! Very glad you like it!

      With regards to the Hunter, are they gloss or matte? That makes the difference for me with black. What do the blue rain boots look like? I think it all depends on what jeans/trousers you would wear most with them?

  8. December 26, 2016 / 3:15 pm

    You look amazing! Really stunning, I loved the Santa outfit! So sorry that you had such a bad cold and especially spending the week with Adam. I hope you are OK by now, boxing day I normally use to relax – so I hope you can relax as well! Loved the boots and the personalised suitcase, and the colour – red is my favourite colour! I wish you and you family a great week AND an even better 2017!

    • December 27, 2016 / 3:14 am

      Thank you so much, Denise! I’m so happy you like it!

  9. December 28, 2016 / 4:33 am

    lol…I love the costume on you. Christmas day was great and boxing day was even better since I got to spend it with my cousin having fun in NYC. However, I am really looking forward to 2017. I hope you got to relax and enjoy the holiday.

    • December 28, 2016 / 1:40 pm

      So glad you like it! It sounds like you had a fun time!

  10. December 28, 2016 / 4:38 am

    Isn’t it always tough to take photos in public? Lol!! People watching and such…

    • December 28, 2016 / 1:40 pm

      It is, lol! I often get the ‘do you want me to take a photo of both of you?’ question too!

  11. December 28, 2016 / 4:40 am

    Oh! And Merry Christmas girly!! Hope Santa was good to you!!

    You look really pretty in this Santa’s costume, Lorna, red suits to you! What’s more, I love your shoes, they’re terrific πŸ™‚
    I wish you an amazing NYE and New Year, dear πŸ™‚

    • December 29, 2016 / 5:32 pm

      Thank you so much!

    It’s a fabulously fun outfit. πŸ˜€ I can certainly imagine how hard it was to do this shoot without too much attention as it’s very eye catching. If you’re delivering presents in that suitcase then I imagine it must be bigger inside than outside? πŸ˜‰

    I hope you had a great Christmas. πŸ˜€ I’m quite late reading this as I didn’t really look at anything online other than Facebook and Instagram over Christmas.

    • December 29, 2016 / 11:34 pm

      Ha ha, or maybe I’m a scrooge and was only delivering coal to my loved ones instead? πŸ˜€ It’s pretty big inside though, it’s definitely like a Mary Poppins bag!

      • December 30, 2016 / 9:58 am

        Oh yes, I remember as a child being told that Santa would bring me coal if I was bad. πŸ˜€ It never happened, of course… πŸ˜‰

        • December 30, 2016 / 11:49 am

          Well I’m sure you weren’t bad enough!

    • December 29, 2016 / 11:32 pm

      Thank you!

    • December 29, 2016 / 10:48 pm

    Your little snow-case is so cute, so perfect for you πŸ™‚ I am a big fan of tights so even this little glimpse of them on you was so wonderful for me. So fun ti imagine seeing the rest of them on those gorgeous legs and beyond. I would especially enjoy seeing your beyond in them as you are sometime kind enough to share in your jeans πŸ˜‰ These made for such a relaxing, fun treat, dear. Enjoyed them very much. I have so much to catch up on but every time I start I do not last very long πŸ™‚ It is sure fun trying tho!

    All Things Bright and Lovely
