The end of the year!

Well I thought I should probably blog before the end of the year!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I have been enjoying my time off and have taken the opportunity to spend time with Edd, my friends and family and attempt to tidy the flat.

What are your plans for New Year? I know a lot of people dislike having to do anything, and I am moving in that direction. What I'd most like to do is sit on the balcony with Edd and drink champagne, or go away to somewhere that really knows how to celebrate..Edinburgh maybe or New York. Though I do find all the talk  of ball-dropping childishly amusing.

A second choice would be a house party, ideally not my house hah. I had my fingers crossed for this to happen this year but it didn't. I'm too young to stay in and do nothing and I haven't been organised enough to arrange to go away. So I'm going out with Edd and some of my (our) friends to the Island Bar/Victoria do. At least I won't be too drunk, as I can't be knocking down £7 cocktails all night!

Even though I didn't know what I would be doing, I bought my New Years dress a few weeks ago from ASOS. I'd had my eye on it for ages, and snapped it up when it was reduced- plus I had a 20% off code!

So here is the dress....

My favourite perfume is Clinique Aromatics Elixr- it's so musky and gorgeous! I have the body lotion too which I like to put on before a night out. 'The Sparkler' from The Body Shop is a lovely shimmer spray but it was the packaging which sold it to me! I still love the crackle nail polishes from last year at Christmas, particularly over red polish (this one is from M&S in a set I had for Christmas). And last but not least, glitter eyeliner!

I hope you all have a super New Year whatever you get up to!
