So catch up time! I need to apologise for missing last weeks. I’ve been so busy with things lately, trying to sort out the flat, christmas, arranging travel for Christmas etc I haven’t had time to sit down. Crazy!
On with the past week…
It’s been a nice wind down week for Christmas really. I’ve been stupidly excited to get to see MockingJay Part 1 and that the new Annie movie is coming out! EEK! I was ecstatic to find out that Caroline Flack had won Strictly Come Dancing – talk about deserving it!!! Although I’m bouncing off the walls at a much slower rate when Ben Haenow won X Factor, he did well and all that but he wasn’t Fleur and certainly wasn’t Andrea. Talk about a completely backwards result. Eugh. I popped out and indulged a little bit for myself for a change, I got myself some gorgeous new MAC lipsticks and some new nail polishes which is exciting (haul blog to come!) and went back to brown!
No more red hair!
I FINALLY went to the Alchemist! I’ve been desperate to go since it opened but me being me refuses to pay £20 for 2 cocktails, but seeing as though it’s cChristmas Me and my mam decided it was time to treat ourselves so we dug into these – my beloved woowoo and the hot and cold espresso (which I am intensely jealous I didn’t get, it was scrummy and suuuuper impressive when they made it!)
That was followed by a gorgeous meal to finish a fantastic day of shopping off!I finished my Christmas shopping which I managed to forget ’til the last minute. No surprise there! We also had our little Christmas day today as I wont be home for Christmas, so we’ve had such an amazing, lovely day together. We cooked something yummy and opened all of our presents. My favourite thing about Christmas is watching people open the presents I bought for them, I love the surprise and happiness.
Christmas drinks were in order for the last day of work. Which included many a beer, wine and vodka. And got carried away with the Christmas Duck…
So you can imagine how much I needed the vat of coffee I devoured the next morning…
Regardless of my painful (understatement) head, I managed some therapy at the hairdressers and dragged myself out on a lovely long walk. You can’t beat the way the sky looks at this time of year. It doesn’t come anywhere close the rest of the year I mean seriously, just look at the view I got to take in:
Minus the hangovers, excessive Christmas drinking and some sensible stuff inbetween, I’ve had my head deeply burrowed in my particularly festive book; I Heart Christmas. This book by Lindsey Kelk is perfect for you girly, romantic, Christmas lovers out there. I got mine second hand super cheap from Amazon. I absolutely recommend this book 100%.
Some gorgeous songs have come out the past week, and some of my Christmas faves have made an epic reappearance – Fairytale of New York and Stop the Cavalry. Christmas is not complete with out them. We just need a bit of snow now! Not long, it’s basically 3 days (can you tell I’m counting down? 😉
Hope you guys are in for an amazing Christmas time, check out my blog tomorrow for my Christmas nail designs. I have 3 major Christmas nail blogs for the run up to Christmas on Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday! 2 tutorials and 1 about my staple shades, so stay tuned! I’m going to go dance around my house to ‘Fairytale of New York’ now…
