Friday, 23 December 2011's been a while. I am currently listening to Boyzone whilst drinking medicinal tasting ginger wine. My nails have been painted orange and I am ready to go to S's parents for the remainder of the festive period. Woooo.

I went to Paris earlier in the are some pics. I ate like a horse for the duration though, so my face (and the rest of my body) is rather bloated. Eugh. Enough about that...

I could gush all day about how lovelystunningwinefilled Paris is, but I won't. Suffice to say, it was AH-MAZING (I'm good with words, you see). We walked, we visited famous sites (and took the obligatory photos next to them), consumed lots of cheap vin (we even purchased wine for 1 euro 35 from the supermarket! Insane! Haven't yet tasted it, but will let you know) and ate lots of food. One night I had a 'veggie plate' which consisted of mash, pumpkin soup and cabbage! Yes it was yum.

We also visited the Christmas market. I would love to go to the home of the Christmas market, Germany, next year. There's something about them that makes Christmas 'real' for me, if that makes sense. La le la. *The wine's not going to my head or anything*.

I've been planning (head stage only) holidays for the summer and next winter. I would love to go to New York, Florence, Venice and Prague. I like little city breaks.

Ooh, I have new cosy penguin Christmas socks. Tres cool.

Sorry for the random nature of this post; I'm going to go now, before I further reveal just how weird I am!

And on that note HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone. Hmm, I was going to say I'll show you the pressies I got in the new year, but my focus seems to be on the material. Watching the comedy 'Rev' made me think that it should be about more than that (yep, the things that make me think nowadays!) I used to be really religious, but I'm not anymore. Christmas should still be about more than presents...maybe I'll volunteer at a homeless shelter or something (thanks Rev).

OK really this time- BYE for now and have a great Christmas :) xxxxx

Winter Warmth

I went to the Westfield at Stratford today AGAIN. I really like it there, even though Oxford Street is pretty much on my doorstep. There is something about having lots of shops under one roof that I really like!

My main reason for being there was to purchase some Christmas goodies for my family, but, as usual, I saw lots of things that I liked too. I managed to restrict myself to one winter coat, because I really did need one (honest). It's so nice and toasty and fits perfectly. I got it from Topshop petite range (size 6...but I think it's supposed to be oversized as I'm not usually a 6. Nice to know it fitted though!) It was down £30 to £55, which I think is a bargain for something I'll wear again and again.

Here it is:
Er, yeah, sorry about the pjs. And the face.

My computer is taking absolutely ages to upload photos tonight! Not good. I have a few more photos, but I'm an impatient person.

I went into the Hollister store today. To be honest, I wasn't too fond of the whole low lighting thing. I felt like a granny as I wandered around the store thinking 'I wish I could see this product a bit better'. I bumped into a fair few people too (literally) but then I have no spacial awareness so that probably had nothing to do with the lighting.

The clothes themselves are great. It does feel like an American version of Jack Wills though. And I am a JW fan, so I think I'll stick with them.

Right, let's see if the photo uploader is working this time...

Just the coat from another angle. I'm usually not a fan of (faux) fur collars, but I really like this one. As you can see from the bag in the background, I also purchased a few other things from Topshop, but I'll show you those another day.

One thing I can show you (if the uploader manages to work quickly enough!) is my new Topshop nail polish. It's called 'without a clue'. It's very cutsey and understated, which I'm quite liking at the moment. It's a new favourite, along with my nude Nails Inc. polish (which I got free with diet coke-bargain!)

I'm off to a wedding tomorrow. I love a good wedding!

Hope you're all having a good weekend xx
