Another (Bitterly Cold) Week In Instagram's

Hello hello! 

Another week in Instagram's for you this week! As I will not be posting this next week as it only the best day of the year, Christmas day!

One.
Cute new tree decoration from Next! 
Two.
The super hail that happened on Tuesday! It was a promising nod towards snow but no such luck as yet! 
Three.
Yankee sampler I purchased called Christmas Eve, making my little flat smell all festive! 

Four.
Fresh batch of Sugar Mice at work, we have been going through a box a day as (I didn't know this) they are a traditional stocking item. We actually ran out and had people getting very huffy at me! 
Five & Six.
:O This is my Christmas present from my boyfriends dad! I got home after a very busy day at work to find a book shaped parcel from Amazon, and as I have been ordering a few bits off Amazon, I tore in to it without blinking! Oops! It was an amazing surprise, even if my first thought was "Oh god what have I accidentally ordered?!" and then I found the note included and I stopped worrying. I have been reading An Idiot Abroad - The Travel Diaries by Karl Pilkington, who I think is hilarious. I really like it, a lot more than I thought I would and I am going to review it later in the week.

Seven.
An Aero Christmas Tree which Ali brought round, Oh it was a beauty! 
Eight.
On Friday I popped out with a couple of friends for some Nando's and some drinks. Nando's has a pretty impressive selection of Veggie options which was quite surprising as it's traditionally a chicken restaurant.  We also popped in to BSB for a quick drink, as I never go out I thought I would mark the occasion with a photo - I am an old lady! 

Nine.
Eight months after moving in to this flat I finally found my slippers!
Ten.
Nails Inc 3D Glitter Special effects in Bloomsbury Avenue. Although this looked lovely in the bottle I am really unimpressed with it, took 3 coats to get it looking anywhere vaguely "glittery" and it feels very cheap. It also took 3 top coats and it still feels rough, I will be taking it off later - this is heading to the eBay pile as I type. I have had a lot of much better glitter nail varnishes but this was a real disappointment.

Eleven. 
An early Christmas present from Kyle. Magnetic fish scissors with eyes!

Twelve & Thirteen. 
My give away prize came from Bentina Blue - I chose the Very Shiny Nose necklace and I will be wearing him to work all week. It also came with a candy cane and I love the simple brown box and string packaging. 

Fourteen.
Along with the necklace, I will also be wearing these socks. I love the week before Christmas! Everywhere you go there is excitement in the air and every one seems slightly kinder and happier, good will to all men and all that!

So that has been my week, the next week is going to be a blur of Christmas prep, seeing friends and travelling up North for the holidays! Hoping you are looking froward to it as much as I am!

  2. The Yankee sampler looks interesting. And I love glitter nail polish!
    And I will never get a Kindle because I still prefer to read a book and feel its pages. :)
    Have a good Christmas!
