Work Christmas dinner
It all started with the work Christmas party back a few weeks ago. These days the aren't many opportunities to dress up so I really enjoyed glamming up (look out for an outfit post soon) and celebrating with friends and colleagues. It was my first Christmas dinner of the year too (so tasty)!
Oxford street Christmas lights
Godiva teddy bear
Festive Lola cupcakes
Selfridges Christmas chocolates
As a Londoner, I regularly shop on Oxford Street, but this year, what with all the glittering white snowballs and sparkling Christmas lights it just seemed that little bit more magical. Selfridges had some beautiful in-store displays too, and I really enjoyed browsing through everything whilst picking up Christmas presents for friends and family. On a more personal note, since I now spent half my time away from London I've come to appreciate the capital so much more and I can't wait to move back properly in August 2014.
Christmas 2013 also saw me return home to Birminghm for the first time in over a year. Although I always miss the freedom and convenience of London whenever I go back it was nice to just relax at home, enjoy some home cooked food and meet up with old school friends.
Coffee with friends
Finally with my old school friends we seem to have got into the tradition of meeting up after Christmas for lunch and some sale shopping. Quite surprisingly I didn't buy a single thing this year, but it was just nice to sit around, drink coffee and catch up over the last year. It's crazy to think we've been friends for nearly 15 years now!
Did you have a good Christmas break? What are you most looking forward to in 2014?
