Christmas in a flash

Diary

Hey everyone… We have a lot to catch up on! So much has happened over the past week, so here I am to dish up the details.

Liam and I became home owners last Thursday 22nd December after a long and stressful 5 months – the same day that Liam got confirmation that he got his promotion (yay!). We were never given an exchange or completion date by our Solicitor so it came as a bit of a shock when I had the phone call to say we could pick up our keys. Owning my own home has always been at the top of my bucket list and was also my Mum and Dad’s dream, as well as my own. It breaks my heart that my Dad is no longer with us to see me tick off this box, but I’m sure he would be proud. Needless to say, I spent most of the day crying with joy.

Christmas  has come and gone if a bit of a flash. As I was franticlly saving for the house and all the bills that come with buying a house, I made most of my Christmas presents this year – so lots of scented cancels, bars of soap, Christmas tree decorations, fridge magnets , etc and a painting of my family’s Jack-Russell cross terrier, Tilly! I made a Cranberry and Key Lime Pie and Nutella Christmas Tree pastry to take to my family’s house for Christmas and spent the whole weekend ramming food into my face (standared).

Everything inbetween has been house, house, house! 

We are having a lazy day today where I will be reflecting over 2016 deciding what my resolutions will be for 2017 (better late than never, right?). 

Happy New Year to all you lovely lot.

Love always, L x 

Another year older, still none the wiser!

Beauty, Diary

image1I’m not old – but I feel it! I turned 24 on Monday and to be honest, it was a bit of a disaster. I celebrated with my friends on Saturday night, managed to snap my favorite pair of heals and subsequently had to leave early due to my broken shoe and a possible broken ankle. I’M OK – it’s not broken, just very fat!

As I spent the rest of the night and the following two days wallowing in self pity, I need to talk about how spoilt I was (It’s still my birthday week, so I’m allowed to show off!). Liam gave me Chanel Mademoiselle eau de parfum (That brings my count to 3 bottles – safe to save I like this stuff a lot!), a beautiful eternity necklace, a couple JoJo Moyes books to add to my TBR list, a Groot bobble head (THISSSSSS) and not to mention the Nutella Krispy Kremes, cocktails and the most amazing meal at Coal, Exeter. My best friend of 9 years is taking me for a Spa day at the end of the month and my mother gave me some Euro’s in preparation for my holiday in three weeks.

I fully plan to keep milking my birthday for as long as possible (as I do every year).
