Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got everything you wanted! I had a lovely family day and received some lovely gifts including Rhod Gilbert tickets, a tattoo (!), slippers, dvds and all the other lovely little presents you get a Christmas time! My boyfriend did a great job and got me this amazing Pandora bracelet - very impressed as he chose it all himself and I didn't even hint THAT much ;)

This morning I got up bright and early to hit the Boxing Day sales. I have a retail park less than a minute walk away from my house. I KNOW. I got quite a few little bargains. My total full price should have been £169 but I managed to get it all for just £80! These are a few of my favourite bargains of the day.

Soap & Glory Heaven Nose Gift Set
Was: £16 Now: £8

Miss Selfridge Heart T-Shirt
Was: £20 Now: £10
Miss Selfridge

Sodamix Heart Cardigan
Was: £35 Now: £15

I also got a couple of other tops, some towels from Matalan, and a few other bits from Boots, but the above were my favourites! Have you been sale shopping? What bargains have you discovered?! x

Glittery Nails

Quick post from my phone to show you Models Own in Pink Fizz. How lovely is this?! I put it over Nails Inc Havana but to be honest if you did two coats of Pink Fizz you wouldn't need a base coat!

I got this as part of a set of 3 polishes costing £10.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree....


So the time finally came at the weekend where I was finally allowed to purchase and put up our Christmas Tree! I am VERY organised in my tree purchasing and VERY particular about tree decorating, and even present wrapping. I do have a life honest! Excuse my photos - my beautiful bestie is borrowing my camera so I am using my phone!

The Tree

So this is my little tree. It's actually a 6ft one and cost £25 from Tesco and was pre-lit (a godsend as I cannot stand putting on the lights - it takes too long to get it right!). I got all the decs from Tesco too as they were half price - I think I paid about £2.50 for all the baubles! I went for traditional red and gold. You might notice that I haven't got any tinsel. I hate tinsel. Please don't judge me.

The Present-Wrapping

I love wrapping up presents! I like making them look all pretty. I choose a wrapping paper theme each year and stick to it (I'm not doing myself any favours here am I?!). This year I went for gold and pink for the ladies and gold and blue for the men. Little girls get Peppa Pig and little boys get Cars. Every present has to be wrapped in ribbon, tied into a bow and they all have the same glittery gold bauble tag.

Please can someone tell me that I'm not the only one who is very particular about Christmas decorations and wrapping paper?!
