So I realise that this is a bit overdue, but it’s time to share my festive habits from 2013.
WHAT I WAS WEARING…
MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in ‘Gilt by Association’
The bold and striking colours swept on beautifully and lasted long into the evening. It gave my eyes a sultry look which wasn’t too heavy for wearing in the day either. Add a flick of black eyeliner and a few coats of deep black mascara and you’re good to go!
My novelty Christmas Jumper always seems to become like a second skin once we hit December 1st and I really do love mine… and I loved mine back when it wasn’t cool to be seen in a novelty jumper! I picked this one up from BHS online, super soft and comfy it also kept me toasty warm when the wear got a bit rubbish. Plus… who doesn’t adore Rudolph?!
WHAT I WAS EATING & DRINKING
Marks & Spencer Festive Treats
These guys always send me lovely things to try!
The Glitter Juice Drink was divine! Filled with lots of fruit to keep you going through the alcohol-fuelled festivities but also perfect as a base for a non-alcoholic cocktail- just add lemonade. Filled with glitter…this drink is also great if the kids want their own mocktails too.
Then there was the cream of the crop…the Salted Caramel gateaux. This cake was a beast!!
Absolutely stunningly presented with white chocolate Christmas trees on top and dusted with cocoa powder, the cake cut smoothly revealing layer upon layer of soft sponge and gooey fudge icing.
Needless to say, this disappeared within minutes of my party guests arriving!
WHERE I SPENT MY DAYS
After falling in love with Coffee#1 just after my birthday, it has now turned into a full blown love-affair. Tempting me in with sultry names and luxurious ingredients, the brand never fails to excite my taste buds and the staff are always amazingly friendly.
My evenings usually took me somewhere in town… Often Cosy Club!
This year however I had the chance to visit Winter Wonderland twice and loved every second. It was great being able to stand in the Alpine Village, sipping an Amaretto hot chocolate whilst listening to the Oompah band and have fake snow blowing over our heads. It reminded me of my time I spent in Finland.
WHAT I WAS LISTENING TO
Bastille- Of The Night
Ellie Goulding- How Long Will I Love You
Martin Garrix- Animals
