December & January Round Up

Working in retail AND hospitality over the festive period has alot to answer for. I’ve missed blogging but simply didn’t have the time to offer some quality posts so please forgive my absence.

This will be a photo heavy post showing what’s kept me busy since I lasted posted.

December

At work one day we had a “Christmas Glam” theme. Whilst this outfit isn’t as glam as I would have liked due to the almost freezing temperatures in my shop layering was crucial!

Outfit deets:

Headband: Tesco

Cardigan: River Island

Jumper: H! By Henry Holland

Skirt, tights and socks: Primark

Boots: New Look

I freakin ‚̧ this H! By Henry Holland jumper and have worn it loads. The split in the skirt was far too revealing to wear without tights but I quite liked the effect of the printed hosiery with this outfit.

Another month another (few) trip(s) to Madeleines for some mouth wateringly good desserts.

December saw me become an aunty again ūüôā

My sister gave birth to another beautiful baby girl. As the bestest aunty ever I may have   did spent a small fortune of pink clothing from Gap and Debenhams.

I celebrated my birthday (no I will not disclose my age!). It was a rather sedate affair this year but was lovely to spend time with my nearest and dearest. Also how cute is my Minnie Mouse hat gifted to me by the mother?!

Just some of my Christmas gifts

The Bestest bought me this onesie and it is fast becoming one of my most favourite items ever!

I posted in my wishlist about wanting decent makeup brushes so imagine my delight when the parents gave me these beautiful Dior brushes. they are almost too pretty to use. Second best present was definitely my Cambridge Satchel. Bigger than my red one from the previous Christmas, I have used this almost every day since.

This H&M dress was my outfit of choice for Hogmanay. Rather daring for me to be exposing the midriff but I have decided to step out of my comfort zone with clothing and what better time to start than New Year.

This whole outfit cost me the grand total of £44 thanks to some savvy sale shopping!

Dress: H&M

Shoes: Nine West

Necklace: H&M

Ring: Primark

January¬†consisted of many relatives birthdays, some illness and wedding dress shopping! No not for me (alas) but the bestest got engaged on Christmas Day and as Maid of Honour it was my duty to offer critical analysis of dresses. Although the wedding isn’t until next August both the wedding dress and my dress have been purchased!

So much for Dry January – LOTS of cocktails were consumed, favourites were from Tonic and The Roseleaf.

October & November Catch Up

That’s right I’ve been a crap blogger lately – only 1 post in November. Oops! Wish I could say I have a valid reason but I don’t.

Here’s what’s been keeping me distracted:

Having fun with Yvonne in our onesies! Long gone are the days when we’d be drinking all day and night, now it’s all about cheesy movies, cosy PJs and mulled cider.

013

Drunken selfie after a night at the Hibs Club for a 40th. As usual I was crap and forgot to take an outfit shot.

Treating myself to a Clinique Chubby Stick – review to come soon.

002

Getting my nails Shellac’d – really like the grey with glitter on top. I’m rubbish with nails so even my Shellac doesn’t last as long as it should do ūüė¶

Buying this adorable owl necklace from Persun Mall

040

Ate THE most delicious desserts from Madeleine’s¬†Patisserie¬†in Stockbridge. Yvonne, Jade and I almost wept over how good these were!

I’ve also been buying some well needed knitwear including a super cute Henry Holland polka dot number which I’ll post about soon.

Sure there’s plenty more I’ve been occupied with but just can’t remember at the moment
