New Year [Sunday Social]

 Here’s to the last Sunday Social of 2013!

1. What is the best New Years Eve you've ever had?
For the past four years we’ve been to a friends flat down the road and they’re always super fun!
2. Are you doing anything for NYE this year and if so what?
This year instead of a house party, we’re heading to Camden to see Craig Charles DJ. Should be interesting!
3. Name a book we should all read come January?
Anything by Dorothy Koomson. She’s such a wonderful writer.
4. What are your new year's resolutions? 
I stopped making resolutions years back! I find I keep to them if  don’t plan them (if that makes sense!).
And there we have it. See you in 2014!

A Boxing Day Sales Shop

Christmas has come and gone for another year. It’s time to get ready to put away those Christmas trees, cards and decorations. But it’s also time to hit those sales. I’m not so great in big crowds so I just head to our small selection of shops down the road to see what I could find.

New Look

New Look

I got myself two things in New Look; the beautiful lacy top on the left (£22.99 £7) and the red canvas style trainers (£11.99 £5). I have a love of everything with lace so as soon as I saw this I knew that I needed it; it can be paired with jeans for a casual look and heels for a night out.

My new obsession is Soap and Glory so I couldn’t let these lovely sets go without grabbing them. On the left is Crazy Sexy Kohl (£18 £9) and Powder Trip (£20 £10) on the right.

Crazy Sexy Kohl

The Crazy Sexy Kohl  kit has five Smoulder Kohl pencils in Superblack, Cocoa Bean, Aquabat, Blue My Mind, and Grapevine. I absolute love these; they have a lovely creamy texture that makes them easy to apply and smudge for a more subtle look. Add one of the three Lid Stuff shadows (in Aubersheen, Smokin’ or Dandy Plum) for a lovely smoky look.

Powder Trip

The Powder Trip set includes the Solar Powder Multi Shade Bronzer (bottom left), the Love at First Blush Multi Shimmer Blushing Powder (top right) and the Blow All Out Illuminating Face Powder (top left), as well as a Handy Half-Moon Powder Brush and a humongous mirror to help you apply on the go. I like to be quite subtle with my make up so I find these really handy to add a little bit of shimmer to my look.

TK Maxx

TK Maxx

I know that this wasn’t technically a sale item but as TK Maxx is always cheaper I’ve included this lovely Raymond Waite’s Storage Bin (£6.99). I bought this especially to hold all my larger styling tools by my bed so they#re not just hanging out on the floor ready for me to tread on.

That is all for my Boxing Day shopping. On the few things I bought I should have spent £79.97 but actually spent £37.99. Fabulous!

A Very Merry Christmas

Event Santa has to refuel his car, right?

And with that, I wish you all an incredible rest of your Christmas :)

The Holidays Have Begun [Sunday Social]

Hooooray! It’s officially the Christmas holidays and boy am I exhausted from my first term of being a real life teacher. But the holidays means that I am getting back into my blogging, finally! But for now, let’s get into the last Sunday Social before Christmas.

1. What is your favorite holiday season tradition?
We always go and do Christmas Eve with my family and then Christmas Day with W’s family.
2. Do you have a certain holiday movie you watch more than others? If so what is it?
We watched Polar Express at school the other day and I forgot how wonderful that film is.
3. Show us your favorite decoration or pinterest decoration you wish you could have.
I love my little owl!
Christmas Decoration
4. What is your favorite holiday song?
5. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Does trifle count as a holiday desert?
6. What is on your wish list this year?
Wedding money!
And that’s it. Stay tuned to see the lovely things I've been buying in the run up to Christmas, and some of my favourites from the year.

Christmas Cheer [Sunday Social]

Aloha! Is everyone starting to feel Christmassy yet? I sure am! I have my tree up, and I’m preparing my Christmas lessons for next week. It’s all so exciting!

1. What is your favourite Holiday Movie/TV Special?
I love Elf. Who doesn’t?!

2. Do you do any volunteering during the holidays if so what? If not what would you do?
I don’t no… But I really would love to do something. I think that next year (once I’ve settled into teaching and don’t have so much to do) I’ll get involved.

3. What is your favourite toy received as a child for the holidays?
I genuinely can’t remember. I think it was a toy dog that had puppies. It was wonderful, I took it everywhere!

4. What was your must have item in high school for the holidays?
I don’t remember this one…

5. What do you do on Christmas Eve?
I’m half Chilean, so all of my mums side of the family are over there. I go to her house and we open presents, eat dinner, and Skype with the Chileans.

Just a little insight to my Christmas… I’m on my last week of term next week so after Friday I’’'ll have my life back for two weeks!

The Return of Sunday Social

Hello there!

Can you believe that it’s December already?! It’s been such a busy few weeks that I’ve struggled to actually get to my laptop to sit and do work, let alone do some blogging.

1. What is the wallpaper on your cell phone?
It’s cream with some flowers at the bottom. Nothing special, just very pretty.
2. What do you keep beside your bed?
Glasses, books, lamp, ring, hair dryer, brush, and mousse.
3. What is your least favorite chore?
Cleaning the kitchen. I really hate it!
4. If you could eliminate one thing from your daily routine, what would it be?
Sorting my hair out. It would be wonderful if I could just snap my fingers and it’s dry and fancy.
5. What do you do to vent anger?
Talk to a friend. They must get fed up of listening to me moan!

6. What is your favorite holiday of the year and why?
Christmas. Once it gets closer I remember how much I love it.
And there we go. I keep promising that I’m back on the blogging, but with only a few weeks left at work, I’m definitely going to make more of an effort!
