After a busy November December was even busier. December is always a busy month full of catching up with friends and family and Christmas shopping. I tackled a few personal demons and ended up really proud of myself.
What I wore-
Finding a picture of my outfits from December was pretty tough, of all the days and nights out I went on, I didn't take many pictures!I went to see the Big Reunion at Butlins (5ive, B*Witched, A1, Blazing Squad -don't be jel) and one of my OOTN's was this simple black trousers (ASOS) and tartan bralet combo. I love this bralet, it's from Little Mistress and is actually in the sale at the moment. The nude heels are from Office and are actually really comfortable!
What I ate-Other than the obvious Christmas dinner (I'm sure you've seen enough of them -they never look as nice in photos do they?!) I ate a lot of amazing things. Christmas is about eating good food! I don't think it's about indulging though - too much work in the New Year!
On Christmas morning I made breakfast for us all. I'd decided it should be something to tide us over til we had Christmas dinner later in the day but nothing that would have me slaving away in the kitchen for too long. So after Mason unwrapped his presents I rustled up these bacon cups which are so simple to do! Just line a muffin tin with strips of bacon and fill it with whisked eggs and bake them for half hour. I had some warm cinnamon swirls too cos it's only right that Christmas morning smells of cinnamon.
What I read-
I completely slacked on the reading front if I'm honest. There just wasn't the time. I will make sure I read something properly next month onwards! New Year - new reading habits!
What I watched-
I loved seeing the musical Jersey Boys in the West End so I was really excited when I heard they were making a film. I love Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, their greatest hits is one of my most played albums (I was born in the wrong era when it comes to music!) I absolutely loved the film, when it got to the end I was tempted to put it on from the start again -I enjoyed it that much! I was bopping around in my seat the whole way through, the soundtrack is great!
What I used-
I love having a tan over the Christmas season and with so many events planned it's hard to keep up with scrubbing off a fake tan and reapplying every few days. SoI've really been loving the Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tanner to keep up a glow with minimal effort. I was amazed how moisturising it was and the fact that it left a great natural colour too was great. I've been recommending it to everyone I know!
What a year it's been. I've come a long way and I'll be writing about this properly soon. I'm really looking forward to 2015. We've got a lot of plans on the horizon and they are really exciting!
See you on the other side!
