Instagram Diary…Christmas Edition

Well, the Christmas break is almost over. All that excitement and it’s over in a flash. How was the big day for all of you? What did you get? I hope it was fabulous. I figure the best way to beat those post Christmas blues is to relive the best bits in a picture post. So here is a sneak peek at this year’s festivities. Let me know what Christmas looked like for you via Tweeting, Facebook or commenting below!

1. Kicking off the sparkly season with a bit of gold glitter. Trust me when I say it got EVERYWHERE.

2. Colourful chocolate wrappers mean Quality Streets and Quality Streets mean Christmas.

3. The desired destination of the gold glitter was actually my nails. Look how they turned out! I used Barry M polish and Topshop glitter.

4. Pre-Christmas purchase. Floaty New Look top.

5. Twas the night before Christmas and in the name of tradition, I’m watching a Christmas Carol, the Muppets edition! 

6. Letting my inner child take over on Christmas Eve by tracking Santa via NORAD.

7. The gifts awaiting me on Christmas morning. Almost to pretty to open. Almost.

8. My surprise present was Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette. Very sneaky Mamma Smith!

9. Christmas selfie of my eye makeup, thanks Naked 3!

10. Fresh nails using my new Nails Inc Fibre Optic Effect glitter in Hampstead Court.

11. Only a few days after Christmas and a trip to Meadowhall was made to spend my gift cards. This wine coloured top is from Topshop, £38….

12.… As is this little stripy number £32.

13. I’m usually more of a pink lippy kinda girl but this MAC frost finish caught my eye. New York Apple. 

14. To top it all off I was very excited by the arrival of my train tickets to London for a March visit to see Les Mis on the West End. Let the countdown begin…

3. Topshop tassels.

4. Might be a bit early but where advent calendars are concerned you snooze you loose. Now giddy for Christmas festivities.

7. Can’t beat a chocolate muffin.

1. Now that there is a bit of a chill in the air I thought It about time to invest in some A/W jumpers. Fell in love with this fluffy cropped jumper from Topshop.

2. Couldn’t resist these pretty oil spill earrings and cute midi-rings, Freedom @ Topshop.

3. This little book caused uncontrollable giggles in the card shop.

4. The great iOS 7 wait….

5. What does everyone think to iOS7? It took 5 hours to download onto my phone! I rather like it though.

6. Another jumper, this time in hot pink. Just the colour to brighten up dull winter days. 

7. These chocolate and red velvet cupcakes were just too good.

8. Teamed my new fluffy jumper with my tulle strappy midi dress also from Topshop. Meal out to celebrate my big bro’s birthday.

9. Lasagne and chip tea. So good I could have eaten it twice.

1. New Topshop polishes. A simple white (Spilled Milk) and a new glitter they got in this week (Magpie.)

2. Chocolate and stars all in the same bag?! Perfect!

3. Couldn’t resist this Fashion book bible. Total bargain, the history of fashion and costume all in one place with some beautiful pictures to accompany it.

4. Shiny pink windmill to twirl in the breeze = happy garden 🙂

5. Chocolate and honeycomb ice cream sundae. Cheeky treat after lunch with a friend. Sooo nice!

7. Can’t be arced to make tea? Get a pizza in! Chicken BBQ is a fave.

1. Pizza. Some times you just can’t beat a good cheesy pizza.

2. Mother Nature has been one confused lady this week. In just one day we had blinding sunshine, a full on blizzard, rain, hail and gale force winds. But no rainbows. Mother Nature where are all the rainbows?

3. With this lovely soft fresh bedding it’s a been a struggle to vacate my bed each morning.

4. This week I sampled the new Mocha Latte at Costa. Hot chocolate and coffee in the same cup. Just another thing for me to become addicted to.

5. Couldn’t resist the pull of the Bueno bar this week. I just love Bueno’s. I’ll be good next week, promise.

6. Leopard print nails using all Models Own polishes, Gold Rush, Bronze Rage, Disco Heaven and the black Models Own nail pen.

7. My ticket to see The Script at Sheffield arena. Wasn’t able to go last time they toured due to the gorgeous metal cage fixed to my leg. Was beyond excited to finally see them live.

8. As you can see we were right at the back but loved it regardless. This was The Script’s glitter finale to Hall Of Fame. I can also confirm beyond all reasonable doubt that Danny O’Donoghue is a total babe.

9. This picture speaks for itself. Customary cake shot.

10. I get all giddy when new books arrive from Amazon. This batch consists of Rachel Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry, Hannah Richell’s The Secrets Of The Tides and Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life. Can’t wait to get stuck in.

11.‘No actual Malteaser’s were hurt during the making of this bunny.’ I was glad to read this on the back of the Malteaser Bunny packet as I’ve been worrying for a while now.

12. New sparkly phone case. River Island £8. Comes with the added bonus of covering your hands in glitter every time you touch it.
