So it's officially Christmas day in 4 days! Ahhhhhh!

OOTD - Torn In Five

Top - New Look / Skirt & belt - Internationale / Bowler hat - Ebay / Necklace - Gift / Earring & cuff - Coleyyyful / Nails - No7 & Barry M
Another outfit post that has been sitting in my drafts for a month.. & not a very Christmasy one at all. : (
Anyway, I love this skirt. It's so versatile & cute. It was actually in the kids section of Internationale, but being an elasticated waist, it fits fine. Little short, but who's complaining? ; )
How is everyone doing? Nearly ready for Christmas day? It's a week today!
I'm officially so excited!

Christmas Nails #4

Barry M - Bright Red & Models Own Nail Art Pen

Myself & Gemma last night

These were a little last minute so I apologise if they look a bit tatty..
 Went out last night for a Christmas themed pub trip last night, so I obviously had to paint my nails. ; ) I've also got a Christmas dinner tonight with my tea ladies, then a huge group one next weekend. I'm going to have to roll away from the tables.. & diet in the New Year I think.
Are you all ready for Christmas? : )

Might have to hire an elf for the next week or so.. I hate wrapping presents. They always end up looking such a mess.. : ' D
I'm so ill as well. It's so frustrating - I can't stop sneezing & spluttering everywhere. Yes, customers love me.
Ah & make sure you check out my Christmas nail posts if you want some inspiration this week. : )

Christmas Nails #2

Who can resist a bit of green sparkle at Christmas?
These two polishes I've had for over a year. I think the green glitter one was given to me by my Mum but I have no idea where she bought it from. It's called Dazzling N101. I absolutely love it, but it smells so strong! The dark green base coat is Panache by Barbara Daly for Tesco.
I love these two polishes combined, so Christmasy.
Make sure you check out my other Christmas nail post from last week too lovelies. Hope you're all well! : )

Week In Photos #27

Pub dinner / Christmas decs / Offfft, December / Glamorous package arrived.. / Disco pants were inside! / Alan filled with all our Christmas shopping / Doughnuts for lunch / Movie marathon / Going to bed has never been so exciting :) / Advent calender / Wrapping all of James' presents for his advent calender / FINISHED! / Decorating my room / Honey guarding my mail / Lunch with Gemmmmma.

I've done so much Christmas shopping this week, I think I've actually got too many presents for some people. : ' ) I only have two days off in December (not including 24th, 25th, 26th) so I've been trying to do as much shopping as possible in lunch breaks & in November. Think I've done quite well considering.
Oh & I just had to order myself something. Yay, disco pants for Christmas! I have to say, like every blogger in the world who has them, I love them! They are actually so snug to wear this weather & go with everything. Perfect.
I'm just about to start decorating our tree before work this afternoon. We have a real tree & I just love the smell it fills the house with. That, mixed with my Vanilla Creme candle & a bit of Christmasy music, I'm all set. Wish me luck. (It's a proper beast of a tree!)

Christmas Nails #1

Seeing as it is now December, it is officially CHRISTMAS TIME! To be fair, it's seemed like Christmas ever since the middle of November for me this year, (very strange as I'm usually a humbug until the middle of December!) so I decided to start early this year. My one rule for Christmas nails? They must be covered with glitttttter!
So red is the most Christmasy colour there is in my opinion. I own alot of red polishes, but one of my all time favourites is actually my MUA polish. It's lasted me over a year & for only £1, it's a complete bargain.
I picked up the Collection polish last month. It's part of their Bedazzled nail effect collection, called Razzle Dazzle. It's such a pretty varnish; pink, blue, purple, gold & silver glitter all merged into one pot! Heaven.
I'm doing some more Christmas nail posts in the next couple of weeks, so make sure you check back for those. : ) Hope you're all well lovelies!
