It has been a pretty quiet week for me but I am in full Christmas mode now and am counting down until the end of term (5 more get-ups!)
We watched Home Alone 2 through the week which is making me want to visit New York in December next year to see all the beautiful window displays. We have also been watching Billions this week – such good dialogue and actors in it.
I also spent yesterday putting up the final Christmas decorations so the house is looking so festive and cosy.
I made mince-pie pastries which I will try and write the (very simple!) recipe for this week.
We went out for a roast dinner today at a nearby pub for my brother’s girlfriend’s birthday. I had rare roast beef which was delicious!
I bought a little blast from the past this week – Fry’s Turkish Delight…as good as I remembered.
I have tried to avoid buying anything in the run-up to Christmas but I am obsessing with pleated midi skirts at the moment, especially slightly metallic ones.
I have been enjoying my L’Occitane en Provence advent calendar each morning.
With the constant cold weather and central heating, I have pulled out the big guns with a new body butter from The Body Shop. This is the green olive scent and is so rich and moisturising.
Finally, a duo from Eyeko that I have been loving. The FAT liquid eyeliner is a great product, and you can create either a thick or thin line with the felt tip-style applicator.
The Black Magic mascara is also really good. It has a curved brush which helps to curl my eyelashes slightly.
