So That Was Christmas

Checking back in now that I'm reunited with my own laptop! The one good thing about going back to work and my flat today is that I can catch-up with everything that's been happening in blog world and share some of my little Christmas snapshots. I had a lovely four days at home, mostly catching up on sleep and spending time with my parents. I'm already super excited about going back home on Friday - there's just something so nice this time of year about being back in my childhood bedroom and not having to fend for myself!

On Christmas Eve I went to a family friend's party wearing my new red Primark dress:


This is definitely one of my favourite new purchases. Not bad for £15.

Other snaps:


Taking advantage of the time off work to try out the GlossyBox nail wraps. Five days later these are still going strong and I've had a lot of compliments/comments about them. Unlike most bloggers I actually quite like nail wraps. These weren't as easy to file down as the Incoco ones but I'd still use them again.

Matching my top to my nails.

Nail wraps on my toes and my sequin party shoes getting their yearly outing.

Open fire. So festive.

Anti-Christmas meal out on Christmas Eve Eve at Busaba Eathai.

Christmas tree and my party outfit.

Despite getting home at 3:30am on Christmas Eve, Santa had still been on Christmas morning. He must have doubled back especially!

Christmas morning breakfast - my re-creation of a Pret granola pot.

Heston's amazing collapsing Christmas pudding. I'm not usually a Christmas pudding fan but this was super sweet and gooey. Worth the £15 even if it did fall apart while I was taking it out of the case!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
