New Years Eve

*Dress Monki*Heels New Look*
This is what I would have been wearing for New Years Eve if I was going out (I'm not). I don't ever really find the night that special, never had a midnight kiss (boo :( it's on my bucket list! ) but it's always nice to see everyone and have one last night out before the new year comes in. So I'm a bit gutted I'm not actually out this year, but there's always next year!

Hope everyone has a good night!

This is what I've been bumming about the house in today now that the festivities are over, it's comfy and nothing special which suits me! I'm off to see the latest Anchorman today with a friend I've not seen in aaages, so I'm really looking forward to it, after that though I've nothing special planned these next few days apart from eating the rest of the Christmas food and enjoying my time off work!

Christmas Eve Carols

*Boots River Island*Leggings New Look*Jumper H&M*
This is what I'm wearing for Christmas Eve (obviously with a coat on top!), every year in the local town there's carols in the sqaure where anyone can turn up and have a good old sing and head to a pub afterwards. I'm meeting some friends and a few of my family are going so it should be a really nice night, if I remember to take my camera I'll post of pictures of the night.

Hope everyone has a good christmas however you decide to spend it :)

Chunky Knit

*Jumper Monki**Leggings ASOS Petite*Boots New Look* Coat ASOS Petite*Necklace Ebay*

When the weather turns around winter time all I find myself lusting after is big jumpers, leggings and boots. Which is pretty much my staple when I'm out and about not doing much important i.e working! haha I've been really lazy with picking stuff to wear when I can throw on a jumper, anyone else find that there style gets lazy during summer?

Not long till Christmas now, I think I'm finally in the spirit, tree is up, presents wrapped, just the food shop to go! :)

Burnt Orange

Cardi Charity Shop*Top H&M*Leggings New Look* Boots New Look*

I found this utterly perfect cardigan in a charity shop this week, it's so comfy and warm that I might not ever take it off haha I'm not usually a fan of Orange but I love the colour of this! and having pockets and the studs add a nice touch :) I think this is a contender for my christmas day outfit, comfy, snuggley and still nice enough to look like I've put a wee bit of effort in!

Perfectly Pink

Misguided dress, Bonitta Origami Mini Dress 
 This was the dress I wore out to my works Christmas meal and outting round Leeds. I know most people will be shocked that I had my legs out without tights but I was honestly fine, if not I would have put some on cause I hate being cold!...maybe I just had a good alcohol jacket on ;) The night was fun, meal at Prezzo in The Light which was tasty and then everyone went for a dance!

p.s excuse my grumpy face, still not got this photo taking thing down! also no idea why my legs are so much browner that the rest of me, I don't fake tan and I've not seen the sun in months! haha

Lush Spa

Last week I was lucky enough to manage to get two whole days off work, now that might not seem like a lot to some people but a four day weekend was so welcome have nearly 3 months of getting up at 6am and home at 7! these days are long :( the suckyness of not being able to move out of your parents house eh?

Anyway I thought I'd use my days off wisely, monday was a lazy chill out day at home catching up on my oh so important tv shows and sleep. It was pretty damn good if I do say so myself haha. The second day was a bit more adventureous, me and a friend spent the day in Leeds, Christmas shopping (I love the lego store!), eating at Homemade Burger in the new Trinity shopping centre, seeing the new Hunger Games film and having a treatment in the Lush Spa, which is what my blog post today is going to be about!

I have the "Tailor Made" treatment, firstly we were lead down in to the spa thats under the main shop and greated by thee most friendliest people ever who were going to do our treatments. These two were so lovely and genuinely made us feel really comfortable and like we were chatting to friends!

My friend went for the "Validation" facial and got to step by step which lush products she wanted to use with it. I got shown the ones I could pick for mine one by one so I could really pick which ones I not only liked the smell of but ones which I felt would relax me the most. I was told what each bar could do and then which she thought would be best, I ended up picking Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar and the big Blue bath bomb which was put in a jug of water to create a lovely "by the sea" atmosphere & smell. My tailor made treatment was all about picking the area i'd like to be worked on and I chose my back (the danger of working at a desk-killer back ache).

After I was shown the products that would be used on me I was taken to the treatment room, it was lovely and cosy, candles burning, music playing old sea shanty songs to really set the atmosphere and an amazing heated massage bed. Being my first massage I was totally unsure what to expect but the woman so amazing, told me exactly where she was going to start and what would happen. The massage was great, a combination of pressure points to remove knots and deep massage. The massage bar made my skin so lovely and soft and the smell was amazing.

Afterwards I got to take as long as I liked before coming out in to the litttle reception area, there was a lovely mug of tea and biscuits waiting for me and a table layed out with flowers and cute little bits. I got to sit and drink my tea and really "come back" to reality after being so relaxed, I sat and chatted to my massage woman (don't know what else to call her! lol) and it was a really friendly and I felt like I could take all the time I needed. Then my friend finished her treatment and she was presented which a big jug of fruit an ice drink to complete her treatment. We both got to take home one of the items that was used one us for our treatments, I got the massage bar.

Over all it was such a good afternoon and experience! I can't wait to go back and try another one of their treatments, I totally have my eye on "the comforter" I'd recommend having a day out there if you fancy treating yourself and a friend!
