A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

My sister doing some last minute wrapping.

Rockin' around the Christmas tree.

Christmas pudding prep.

Say 'cheese'!

Boxing day meal.

As I type I'm on the train (in First Class might I add!) to London for our overnight stopover before we head off to Amsterdam for New Years Eve so no blog posts for the next few days I'm afraid! I thought in the mean time though I'd share with you some of my Christmas photos and wish you ALL the best for New Year!

What's in my Christmas Stocking?

Seeing as it's Christmas Eve I thought I'd do a little Christmassy post and show you all what my boyfriend got me in my Christmas stocking and kind of do a little play on the 'What's in my Handbag?' posts. I have to admit I did open it before Christmas but only because my boyfriend made me, literally made me open it!

Winter Skin Revival

Without sounding like I'm bragging - I have always been complimented on my skin, once my flatmate just sat stroking my face for five minutes. Most of the time it is lovely and smooth and doesn't even require me to even it out with foundation. But come Winter it's a whole different story, and there's little stopping me from recoiling in horror when I look at my weathered skin in the mirror.

My skin is dry, spotty, blotchy and everything you would wish for your skin not to be. I am blaming one culprit and one culprit only - the cold. Less moisture in the air and increased central heating inside leads to major skin drying and my normal skin care routine just isn't enough to repair/prevent the damage. This climate change also has a drying effect on our lips which leaves them chapped, flaky and desperate for attention and no one wants that.

 So keep reading for some tips keep your skin in top condition this Winter!

With Winter well on it's way I can't help but notice how much my skin has begun to suffer. Over the Christmas period I had a hideous breakout which was only worsened by my attempts to clear it up! Now that my skin has finally reached some degree of normalcy I am determined to keep it that way and get in to a routine that works for my skin.

Daisy Street Faux Fur Coat

Faux fur coat* - c/o Daisy Street
Wet look leggings - Miss Selfridge
Black clutch - New Look
Purple peplum top - New Look
Black bow heels - Primark
So as my regular readers may know, a couple of weeks ago I attended the Daisy Street Bloggers Christmas Party. Whilst there I was asked to tag an item of clothing which I'd most like to review and I was torn between a faux fur coat and their wide array of disco pants (which I'm still set on getting!) but practicality won me over. Quite a few people tagged my chosen item so I was absolutely delighted when I got this baby through my door and decided it would feature in my first ever Outfit of the Day/Night post! Although first I have a confession...

Daisy Street Bloggers Christmas Party

So last Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to the Daisy Street Christmas bloggers party to view their new party and winter collection. I've never been to a blogger event before because one I've only had my blog since August and two I live up the top of Scotland and everything usually happens in London!
