Please excuse me for being so original and posting yet another photo catch-up
thingyjig, but I will have more interesting things on here after Christmas as I'm getting a new camera, maybe Christmas Day if I can prise myself off the couch to do an outfit post complete with turkey food baby!

- The moon's been so big and pretty out my window lately
- Nachooos with the bestie. We polished off two pitchers after this, fatties forever.
- Couple of cheeky Lush purchases; this shampoo's amazing, it contains Hops so it makes my hair really smooth and frizz-free, which is brilliant. The Tea Tree toner has been helping even out my skin tone, I spray it on after cleansing and then rub in some Rescue Oil (a poor man's Bio Oil but it works just as well!) which you can get in Bodycare, Superdrug, Home Bargain for no more than £4.
- One of my besties got me a Snow Fairy Lush set for my birthday, which I have been trying to use sparingly as Snow Fairy is pretty hard to get hold of. Makes my skin so soft and smells amazing, I'm yet to try out the Angel's Delight soap which has the cutest pattern inside, and Shimmy Shimmy glitter bar but they smell soo nice ^_^
- My cousin turned 18 last week so we had a little family meal to celebrate. Here I am thinking I'm all artsy using Instagram, taking a photo of a candle, oooh am I allowed to call myself a photographer yet? (sarcasm)

- As everyone is I'm sure, I'm looking forward to the next week, hopefully hearing back from a few important things I can't really mention yet as it's not apropriate, but they may lead to better things in 2012, so fingers crossed!
- One thing I really dislike about this month is how stupidly busy it gets in town - it's like trying to dodge a herd of wilderbeast in the wild :| Not my cuppa tea at all, so I've done the majority of my present buying online. Thinking I was safe, oh no. Got several emails saying my parcels will be delivered slightly late; one has an estimate date of 7th Jan 2012. Bullhonky! I'm hoping they will be on my doorstep by Thursday so I can wrap etc. And sadly I'm braving the wilderbeast on Monday as I still haven't picked up my new lenses, the things I do for better eyesight!
- My friend's band is having a gig on the 22nd, and we're all going out drinking and dancing after; one night that is sure to be awesome, we haven't all been out since my birthday, so we have a lot of missed nights out to make up for! I'm hoping that no horrendously hammered photos of me, with a stringy fringe and ladders in my tights, trying to climb on my poor friend's back will emerge, but we shall see haha
- My mum and dad put our Christmas tree up last week, no photo as I'm a dumbum and forgot, but this is ground-breaking news - they normally have a little tiff over the tree as my dad likes it with bright lights, tinsel, the works, whereas my mum likes it simple, and everything colour-coordinated, no tinsel. But she's gave in and it looks really nice! Photo up soon, but you can guess how it looks, it's a tree, with lights...

Which side are you on - the more tinsel the better? or is your tree a tinsel-free zone?

  1. I love these pictures!I have been christmas shopping online too, it's soooo much easier than braving the city at this time of year!

    Also re: tinsel, I have gone for a sparing look this year and overdosed on glitzy baubles!

    Much love amie xx
