christmas catch-up!

I really hope that you all had a lovely Christmas! It's so strange to think that this time last week, I was so excited getting ready for the big day. I had an absolutely amazing time, even if it did go way too quickly. Naturally, I spent most of Christmas eating and being merry but I did manage to take a few photos too. Here are some of my favourites showing how we do christmas in my house!

christmas cracker making

Christmas eve is always spent Cracker making. This year I ended up breaking more crackers than I made somehow, but that meant that more nail varnish prizes were kept for myself. (Not deliberate, promise!)

glitter pine cones

Mum and Dad made their own glittery pine cones this year, after mum saying she was going to do it for about 4 years running!

topshop christmas nail wraps

I was so excited to put these nail wraps on from topshop as I haven't ever seen such festive nails. These lasted amazingly well too, I put them on Christmas eve and they lasted until the end of Boxing day, that was with a full shift at work too!

beauty blog

My Christmassy FOTD. I had to use my favourite Red lipstick (Ronnie Red!) I even managed to make that hat stay on my head all day too, without being stolen by my 5 year old niece!

christmas dinner

The Roast dinner. This was actually boxing days dinner (but just as nice!) as I made the family wait until I had finished work to have dinner together!

I have loved reading all of your Christmassy posts, so thought I would just show you mine too!

  1. It does go by too quickly, I think Christmas should be at least 3 days lol. I love those glitter pine cones, that is a great idea.
