Christmas time, mistletoe and wine

Wow, Christmas really does seem like so long ago doesn't it, or is that just me? It's weird how Christmas changes as I get older, I'm not sure if it was just an age thing this year, because we stepped out of our normal traditions and went out for dinner or due to some sad, unfortunate circumstances but even on the big day, it didn't feel like Christmas. However, I still loved and cherished every moment I was able to spend with my family and Lee, eating enough food to fill me for a year, sharing cringey cracker jokes and giggling at the pantomime on boxing day, even if my alarm did have to wake me up at 5am that morning, all ready to work in the Next sale. I was well and truly spoilt this year, I'm so grateful for everything I was lucky enough to unwrap on Christmas day...


Converse, knickers, cosy socks, pyjamas, Forever 21 stripy black top, Forever 21 long necklace

Simple skincare minis, Nivea sunshine essentials, Babyliss curling wand, Liz Earle skincare starter set, Victoria's Secret make up bag, mini impulse body sprays, cooling eye pads, face wipes, hand lotion, batiste, tangle teezer, tea tree oil, tea tree cleanser, Trevor Sorbie hair set, honey bubble bath, Flowerbomb perfume, Lady million perfume, Vera Wang princess night perfume. 
So, as you can see, I now have enough Soap and Glory to last me a lifetime, yay! I'm kicking myself for not snapping many pictures during the festive period but hey ho. I don't think I mentioned my job at Next to any of you, but yes, after moaning on and on I did manage to grab myself a Christmas temporary position and yesterday, it came to an end. It's been tiring but enjoyable, I met some lovely people and at least I now have experience of the crazy working world to add to that CV of mine. I hope each and every single one of you had a lovely Christmas and I wish you a very happy and healthy new year. Love,
