Post-Christmas blues already :(

Yes Christmas has been and gone, and already i have the blues.  Boxing Day usually means working with retail madness but my current job is closed so thats something!

Anyway, yesterday was a pretty awesome Christmas for me, i hope it was for you too! My main gift, from the hubby, is actually what i'm using right now.. IPAD MINI woooop wooop! :D:D:D

I also got Swarovski earrings, a steiff teddy, a lovely onesie, a kardashian bracelet, two beautiful dresses, lovely slippers - and actually maybe a photo of everything will be easier :P

Pretty awesome haul eh? ;) You can also see my amazing secret santa gift there too in all its glory :D I've been using that bag since i opned it lol!

Here's me in my onesie, complete with my beautiful doggy <3 This onesie is soooo warm i love it :D

The hubby & I, yes he always looks miserabke in photos, he assures me he was actually smiling haha! This is also one of the dresses from my parents, chosen by my dad! & Chris's clothes were also from them, although i chose the jumper :D You can also see my bracelet a little there too :)

& lastly here is our magnificent turkey dinner :D Yes it was as tastey as it looks, I dont think i'll be weighing myself any time soon though, i still feel stuffed!!

Unfortunately its back to reality with work tomorrow, and the sale will begin, however I'm going shopping myself once i finish, so we'll see if i find anything worthwhile that might be left :) I did make a fairly large online order from River Island's sale so I'll be sure to update about that when it all arrives :D

So, tata for now :D

Merry Christmas everyone! :D

Firstly I need to apologise for the lack of activity recently, without getting into it (because today is not the day for moaning!) I've just not been feeling like writing about anything as I haven't really had anything interesting to say anyway :/ 

Anyway, now that's out of the way MERRY CHRIIIIIISTMAS :D :D

I hope you are all having a fantastic day, I'm going to post tomorrow in more detail but why I really wanted to write this entry today is to say a huuuuuuuuuuuuge thank you to a very special, and unknown, blogger out there who I hope will read this :D

As some of you may know, a secret Santa is held for bloggers who want to take part and I really love them so I couldn't wait to join in :D anyway, obviously I do not know who my amazing secret Santa is, but I need to say that I am truly touched and so grateful! They are so, so ME! Whoever you are, you have completely understood what I love and have bought me a gift which I will forever appreciate and love.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much!!!

And here are the amazingly awesome gifts in all their glory :D

Thank you again mystery blogger, whoever and wherever you are, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic new year.  You have made me so happy and I will always remember this :D

Merry Christmas to you all!!!!!! & I promise to post more tomorrow ;)

It's finally December, yay!

I can't believe today is the first of December already! Advent calendars at the ready, I actually have two like the greedy moo I am, and may the Christmas films begin! I did actually start watching the TV ones weeks ago but now I can pull out the DVDs and enjoy them "properly", in fact I started today with Arthur Christmas & currently Nativity 2 which I didn't even know existed but gosh it has David Tennant in, swooooon. (on a related note, who watched the Doctor Who anniversary special last week? Oh I cried buckets with joy at seeing him as the Doctor again.)

Anyway a quick step backwards in time to last Sunday & guess who I saw in Manchester? Oh yes, 30 SECONDS TO MARS!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!

Oh gosh they were amazing, and Jared Leto is actually quite possibly the hottest guy in the world, apart from my hubby of course. ;)

I would like to just add that the last two photos aren't actually mine, and were found via the wonders of google as they are clearly superior to any photos I managed to take of him due to me stupidly forgetting to take my actual camera.  Well in fact I didn't forget, I packed the case, got to the hotel in Manchester and opened it to check my battery.. and the camera wasn't in it.  Devastated doesn't even cover it, so then all I had was my phone which does have a decent camera, but not for these conditions obviously. :( The videos I took were pretty good however. Anyway, thankyou to whoever took these photos and if they are yours please let me know and I shall credit your fantastic photography skills <3 I am also incredibly jealous about how close you were to him haha ;)

Their support act "You Me At Six" were also very good actually, I especially loved their demand for a circle pit haha, I don't know why but it just really amused me!

Here's me and the mister awaiting their performance, he looks incredibly drunk there but I swear he wasn't lol! & I am much more excited than I actually look, that I can definitely promise you :P

& here I am the morning after, saddened that it's over, but loving my t-shirt souvenier <3

Also the Macdonald Townhouse hotel in Manchester is truly lovely and I do recommend it, it's a bit farther from the MEN Arena, oh no wait, the "Phones 4 u Arena" (......) than I possibly would have liked but it's not far from the centre itself and the room was much larger than I expected! It was also perfect distance from Burger King for a midnight feast, lovely.

We also passed this guy late at night in the centre of Manchester near the arndale, scared the crap out of me.  A festive Predator, just what every Christmas needs?

Now back to the Christmassyness.  Did everyone open their first door on their advent calendars then?

For those who don't want to see what's inside door number one, please look away now.....

I said look away if you don't want to know.. Are you sure? Alright then!


Yay a mini Soap and Glory clean girls bodywash! It's so cute and smells divine! I can't wait until tomorrow's, and number eight actually as the door is massive haha!

Ooh also yesterday I bought the Sensationail Deluxe Starter Kit from Boots, it's the current star gift and is currently £45 down from a whopping £105, woah.

 I absolutely love it, I couldn't wait to try it out last night and whilst it did take me a little while at first to get the hang of it, it isn't actually that tricky and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do it a lot quicker and neater next time.

Here's my first attempt using the colour "Sugar Plum", it's really pretty and shiny, and I've in fact bought some of the infamous "BlueSky" shades from good old ebay for a fiver each, they'll be a bargain if they will work with the Sensationail lamp, which apparently they should according to a lot of blogs, so I'll be sure to post some pictures once I've tried them, I bought some lovely glittery ones for Christmas ;) I just hope this removes easier than my acrylics did..  It's supposed to last 2 weeks on as well, which I'm not sure mine will due to my hands suffering a lot during work but we shall see!
