These are a few of the like 100 snaps I took on Christmas Day. I got a brilliant Nixon Coolpix L120 Camera and I just loved taking beautiful shots with it. I got a bit carried away with photo taking, but it was like having a brand new toy!
I cant believe it is all over! But... I hope everyone had a fantastic day - I had a brilliant christmas with my lovely family and recieved lots of great presents. This post is just about the day, the next post will be showing a few christmas presents I got. :)
I went to lots of vintage and charity shops today with my cousin and I found lots of beautiful things. I was so tempted to buy everything!... there were cute little glass pots and antique photo frames, as well as vintage jumpers, cardigans and shirts. There was a great leopard print scarf I really wanted and I so wish I had bought it! All I bought (I wish I had bought more considering there was lots of things I loved!) was this oversized patterned cardigan. I am also wearing new leather leggings from Topshop £22 which I adore.
I had a lovely family reunion (we do it every Christmas) where we had lunch up a local pub/restaurant, we had cakes and coffee at home, and we exchanged presents and cards. Their bag of presents they gave us are under our tree and will be opened on christmas morning. They drove all the way down from Cornwall (my aunty and uncle), and my cousin came down from Bristol. I had a brilliant day and I cant wait until next year to see them - I hope we see them sooner!
I bought this eyeliner because it had a rock hard brush and I usually find this easier to use. But it is actually quite hard to apply the eyeliner and hardly any of the liquid goes onto the brush which is irritating.
I couldnt quite grasp doing the flicks with this eyeliner as it kept blogding all over so I turned to my trustworthy Natural Collection liquid liner. The line also came out quite grey (as you may be able to see in the photo) and I really want it jet black.
It was £2.99 which is amazing for a Waterproof liquid eyeliner with a stiff brush! Well... actually it isn't particulary waterproof. I literally licked my finger and rubbed the eyeliner off within a couple strokes. (After it had dryed properly). It set quite hard on my eyelid and sort of crumbles off which was kind of yukky.
Overall - 3/5 (A gave it an extra mark because it has a hard brush)
I bought these this afternoon, all from New Look. I had a 25% Off voucher too so I saved about £20 all together which is excellent! I am going to do an outfit post when they arrive (hopefully it will be soon!) I just thought I would share this with you tonight.
Tomorrow I am buying our Christmas Tree and putting up all the christmas decorations around the house... I am seriously excited! I always think it is one of the best days of the year putting up the christmas decorations as not only does it mean the 25th December is near, but your home always looks festive, bright and beautiful. We only do this once a year so it is always special to me!
I recently looked at Zoella's Blog and her Youtube Channel and saw she has a new post and video... please check it out! She is amazing :)
I revisited the Clothes Show again yesterday with the school as part of an education for textiles. I knew what to expect this time as it was my second trip, so I was not amazed like last time. But don't get me wrong it was still brilliant, although it didn't quite live up to my expectations. The shops/stalls were okay (I loved the vintage section as this year I was able to truly appreciate it!). I only bought a little gold vintage gun charm for a short necklace chain as I could not really find anything. I wish I had bought some knitwear and more jewellery but ahh well, there is always next time.
The Fashion Show, "A night at the Department Store" was fantastic! This never disappoints me as the acting, clothes and story is always inspiring and amazing. The fact that they remembered ALL of the dance moves was astonishing because they were dozens of dance routines. I could not fault it. It was extremely exciting to watch, and you couldnt help but scream at the attractive, hot men with six packs out of this world! Hahahaa.
If anyone also went to the Clothes Show in Birmingham either yesterday or any other day, please comment below and share you thoughts on your day ♥
P.S. The Fake Bake guys looked like they had been dunked in chocolate, which made them even more delicious!
