H&M pink





Jumper – H&M

Skirt – H&M

Can you believe it is only six days until Christmas?! With all my shopping done, bar a few cheeky last minute online orders today, I feel I can now start getting properly excited. I have been so busy recently, I haven’t felt Christmassy at all and even discovered today that I had five, yes five, advent calendar windows to catch up on! I braved Oxford Street with sharpened elbows on Saturday which was quite an experience – children and slow moving people everywhere! However I really wanted to see the lights and the wintery windows of Selfridges and I definitely left feeling suitably festive. Whilst I was there I went and had some eyelash extensions done which you can see in the photos above. Laying back with my eyes closed for 45 minutes was such a welcome relief from all the hustle and bustle going on outside. I feel really happy with the results; very natural with some lovely added length and volume. I will be writing all about my experience at Benito Brow Bar over on the Carmine blog, which is the column I freelance write for, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I hope you are all well and counting down the days until Christmas! Whenever I see the John Lewis advent, I get a little bit more excited and my heart melts all over again. It’s just so sweet.

    Fair play for braving the crowds, I have hidden in my duvet and online shopped. 🙂

    This outfit is so simple yet it looks stunning on you. The pink tone suites your skin tone perfectly. I reallly need to add some colour to my wardrboe. Maybe pink is the way :o) x

  31. 20th December 2011 / 4:51 pm

    This lip colour looks great on you! I think you should wear similar tones more often.

    I also really liek your hair

    Jealous of your hair as always lady!
