Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous night last night, I know I did!
I’m so glad to put 2015 behind me and move into a fresh year, it needs to be a good one. As for New Year resolutions, I don’t really have any, I turned my life around quite a bit at the end of last year, so I guess I should just carry on from that. Maybe lay off the sugary foods a little bit, but definitely to not let people get me down. That is something I must carry over from last year. 2015 was tough on that front, around late November I decided to no longer be afraid of what a few people thought of me and what I was doing. This really did make my life so much better.
So if I was going to have resolutions, it would to be stronger in myself and to not be tempted by sugary foods!
Anyhow, I mentioned in one of my Blogmas posts that I found an adorable dress for New Years Eve in Miss Selfridge’s sale. I promised that I would show you this later on and here it is!! I must apologise for the photo quality… I had had some wine previous to these being taken teehee…
I think this is such a pretty dress and falls so lovely! I watch the TV series Vikings and Lagertha has dresses in this style (minus the shiney bits and a little bit longer) so I must admit, I did feel a little bit like a shield warrior last night. It is very flattering and I absolutely love the neck line. It’s just the perfect party dress!
You can purchase the dress here… I got the size 8 petite!
Let me know what you think and what your party outfit and resolutions are…
Much love ❤
It is finally settling in that I am home and home for quite some time. This is such a good feeling, you have no idea!
Today I went and met up with my friend Alex. We went and did some last minute Christmas shopping in town and fell upon this AMAZING American Diner which I think has just opened up. I ordered a hot dog, which was super yummy, and we shared a butterscotch milkshake. It was like drinking pure ice cream. Sooo gooood.
We wandered around the shops and I was constantly keeping my eyes peeled for a party dress that I could wear on New Years Eve. I had previously bought one, but it was in the Black Friday sales rush and so I didn’t have time to try it on. I wish I could say it was too big, however when I got it home I couldn’t even get the dress over my hips! As sad as it was, I had to return it. I’m sure they should start putting more zips in garments!
Anyway today I found the perfect dress (the silly thing is is that it was in the petite section of Miss Selfridge AND a smaller size than my other one) sizing makes no sense… But I liked this one better so in the end it all worked out well.
I would show you a picture but I might save that until nearer the time… But definitely check out the Miss Selfridge sales, they have some gorgeous items in at the moment.
When I got home I decided to unpack. I always hate this job as I accumulate so much at uni, that when I come home I find I have no space in my wardrobes for it!
Look at how jam packed they are – and that’s not all of my clothes yet! Streeesss…
Anyway, I feel so much better for sorting my unpacking out and getting everything back in their right places again. My mind is somewhat more at ease.
I’m seeing a couple more of my friends tomorrow to give them their Christmas Pressies! I can’t wait to catch up with them, I haven’t seen them in ages and they’re both so ace! Home is treating me well… I hope you’re ll having a good run up to Christmas too x
I was supposed to post this up around two weeks ago now, but I totally forgot! Everything is a little bit hectic here at the moment. Anyway, enjoy 🙂
I went to a fancy dress party the other night with my family. We totally rocked the Grease look!
My mum dressed as Rizzo, my sister was Sandy, my dad went as Kenickie and I was Frenchy .We looked awesome.
My outfit consisted of:
A Pink Ladies Jacket (obviously) – Purchased from Amazon.
A bright pink wig, which surprising looked okay – from the fancy dress shop, Smiffys
I stole a purple top from my sisters wardrobe.
I had a plain black bandanna tied around my neck,
Some white pumps (which I think were from Primark – I’ve had them for a long time now)
And my trouser leggings from Miss Selfridge!
I also wore some false eyelashes (Natural evening wear, Ultra Glam) from Eylure. This make is amazing. They look so natural and the line that the lashes are stuck to is almost invisible when you glue them on. Even if you can see where they’ve been glued you can easily disguise it with eyeliner, if it doesn’t already look like an eye liner line – which is great! They stay on well and tend to fit my eye shape without having to cut them and they’re so light. Once on you can hardly feel them.
The Party was ace … Check out the photos!
