With 2015 fastly approaching the time has come to make the decision of what to wear. Have you chosen what you will be wearing to see the New Year in?
Although I will be working on New Years Eve and New Years Day I will be seeing the New Year in with my family and watching Jules Holland’s Hootenanny. What are your plans?
So Christmas is done but we are still waiting for the New Year and things are really starting to take shape over here at Blog A Book. In the next couple of weeks you will be seeing some changes here and there. If there is anything in particular that you would like to see on the blog just send me an email. So back to the late Monday’s post.
I finished listening to this on Audible a couple of days ago and have to say I am glad it is over.
Review will be up soon.
This book is a title from earlier in the year but it has been waiting on my shelf for some time so I figured it would be a good opportunity to read it now and listen along the way. I have read a couple of Moriarty’s books and loved them. Have you read any?
Don’t you just love it when you have an excuse to light some scrummy Yankee Candles! The Christmas scents are particularly yummy smells. Do you have a favourite?
That’s right – two days before Christmas being normal human beings we forgot some bits and had to brave the crowds. This is just a little part of the crowd that we encountered in Stratford Westfield.
Of course I had to get the boy a present and he absolutely loved it – it lasted all of two days.
AX Paris – £45
Although I am working on New Year’s Eve that doesn’t stop me thinking about what I would wear if I was actually going out. There will be a post up tomorrow with other items for an outfit to bring in the New Year. What are you wearing for the big night?
So despite it being Tuesday I hope you enjoyed my Monday post!
This Christmas why not go all out with some amazing Christmas Crackers. From Champagne
to Candy Kittens
these crackers have an array of gifts that will have the adults at the table grinning like a cheshire cat. Great statement pieces for the festive table. The range goes from the cheaper end of the spectrum at Asda to a higher price range at Selfridges however they all boast some great novelty gifts for those around you to share the festive cheer.
Favourites of the Bunch
Not only is the inside tasty but there are a couple of other novelty items included like the Candy Kittens Lanyard and Keyring.
For £9.99 at Selfridges (Exclusively) you can grab one of these.
Champagne is a great addition to any table and especially at Christmas.
Why not treat yourself to some luxurious bubbles whilst enjoying the festive season.
For £15.99 at Selfridges it is all yours.
How cute would these look hanging on the tree.
So beautiful and sparkly and when they catch the light you have your own little light show.
Yours for only £9.99 at Zara Home.
How are you starting to decorate your place?
This is a good a time as any to double up and use the above picture as my advent picture for the day 😀
For my work Christmas party I vamped up my nails a little and when I say a little I mean ‘heavy on the glitter’. I think I went a bit over kill and in hindsight should have stopped at the pink glitter but what the heck!
These nails varnishes are absolutely fabulous and I will definitely be making a purchase or three in different shades. The brushes are easy to navigate on the nail without having to keep re-dipping to add more colour. Also the fact that I only needed one coat to cover the nail fully with no streaks was a huge bonus. The polish dries very quickly and I would recommend it for any DIY nail people who have only 10 minutes to spare. I am going in search of a base and top coat from this range as I am sure it will as much of a delight to use as these are.
Here are the individual colours in the order I put them on with links (click on the colour names) of where to purchase them:
No7 Stay Perfect™ Nail Colour in Speakeasy – £5.50/10ml
No7 Stay Perfect™ Nail Colour in Daisy Darling – £5.50/10ml
No7 Stay Perfect™ Nail Colour in Gold – £5.50/10ml
As each bottle states (not so clearly on the back of the glitter colours) the varnishes give the benefit of a pigment rich colour and quick drying ultra gloss finish. Both of which add to the splendour of each varnish. At £5.50 a piece they are not bank balance breakers and can be used in a variety of ways to create various different looks which I will be experimenting with over the next week. I do hope you will join me on this and enjoy these beauties just as much as I have and will continue to do so.
