I can’t believe it’s only a couple of weeks until Christmas and I still haven’t done my shopping – eek. Have you done yours yet?
Standard selfie before work. I bought this skirt ages ago from H&M – it was one of the featured items in the catalogue and only £2.99. It’s the first time I had worn it though, as I often wear black skirts with a colourful top. I love the brightness of the pink and teamed it up with a long-sleeved black top.
This week at work we did Secret Santa – and I had been looking forward to it all week, even though I’m rubbish with surprises. I bought for Jayne and she ended up getting me as well! I bought the Ciaté colourfoil nail kit (you can read my review, here) and a little gift box from Lush – I love their products too, especially at Christmas. Jayne bought me a really gorgeous Umberto Giannini set, which I’m sure I’ll blog about at some point!
Another little treat to myself this week were these goodies from Truffle Shuffle. I’ve wanted this collection from Lipsmackers for ages – consisting of old-skool/retro ice creams and lollies, I could not resist. I’ve only used a couple but my fave by far is the strawberry mini milk balm. I also bought this ‘My Little Pony’ vest top, which is very cute. I actually wanted a tee with the castle and pony on, but it had sold out so I went for this. Probably not ideal for winter, mind.
On Friday night, I had my work Christmas party. We went out in Colchester, having a meal at an Italian restaurant, before going to O’Neill’s and Slug & Lettuce for a few (or more than a few) drinks. It’s always buy one get one free on cocktails, so I went for strawberry mojitos. It was a really good evening and nice that everyone let their hair down. Even better, I was hangover-free on Saturday too.
We put our Christmas tree up this weekend; have you done yours yet? I stayed at home while my parents and brother went to local Calcott Farm to buy the tree and wreath for the front door. Our living room is red so we always go for a red and gold theme on the tree, which my mum always decorates. I can’t wait for all the presents to be underneath, but I’m definitely starting to feel more Christmassy now.
I hope you all had a good weekend.
Even better, Ciaté nail innovation kits are 3 for £30 (sets range from £14-£25 each). This offer ends at midnight tonight, so check it out now to avoid disappoint. They make the most perfect Christmas presents, or even a treat for yourself!
