Blogmas Day 7 - Work Christmas party

Thursday 7 December 2017 Cromwell Rd, Kensington, London SW7 5BD, UK

This year my works Christmas party at the Natural History Museum ... Yes you read that correctly. As you can imagine, I was expecting big things and it did not disappoint. 

We were based in the space room, which randomly had a Stegosaurus skeleton hanging out, who was pretty awesome. The dining tables were situated under the earth and were beautifully decorated, the dance floor and the bar were located by the staircases. 

The food was extremely fancy pants and delicious, safe to say there wasn't a crumb left on my plate. To start I had Whiskey marmalade glazed ham with cumberland chutney, fennel, parsley and clementine, it was to die for and for my main I went for the veggie option of cauliflower cheese souffle, savoy cabbage, roasted butternut squash, parsnip cream. It was a bit like really creamy scrambled egg, but it tasted great. Now desert, I didn't know what I had ordered but it was this amazing chocolate tart / cheese cake thing. I could have happily eaten 8000 of them, I am a BIG desert person and this was my perfect desert.  

There was a free bar which we all took full advantage off and the music was absolutely on point. SO MANY BANGERS!! Whoever that DJ was, he deserves a prize. 

The journey home was interesting to say the least, my work had hired out a party bus. This had karaoke, unlimited alcohol and we could make our own playlist. It was so much fun, apart from if you tried to walk anywhere, you would 100% fall over. Oh and the toilet broke half way home which was basically torture. 

I was a bit apprehensive about going as all of my work didn't go, but I had such a good time regardless!! Good job work. Merry Christmas. 

Blogmas Day 6 - 2017 Christmas adverts

Wednesday 6 December 2017

I may have a slight obsession with Christmas adverts and I am sure I am not the only one, as the internet also looses is shit when John Lewes releases their emotional 2 minute christmas story. ALL THE FEELS!! So I thought I would share my top 5 Christmas adverts of 2017!! Surprisingly ... John Lewes didn't even make the cut this year ... weak!!


5. I am sorry but this Lidl advert speaks to me on a personal level ... I love food and I love to eat. There's a whole series of little Christmas stories, but this ones my fave.

4 - The Argos advert this year is pretty cool, it reminds me of Arthur Christmas, which is one of my family's favorite Christmas movies. 

3. This video may be 5 minutes long, but it's part of Vodaphone's 6 part love story and it's so good, I love a Christmas love story. For some reason I can't link it properly, so here's the URL.

2. Aldi's Christmas advert was a very close number 1. I kind of want to move it to first place because it is that good. It is absolutely AMAZING and so so funny, I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Watch it below to see why I am all about the carrot, which Aldi are selling by the way.

1. My number 1 Christmas advert this year goes to M&S. Paddington is just so cute, nostalgic and current, so it relates to every member of the family. I love the innocence of it and the Christmas cheer, it's like Home alone meets Paddington, a perfect combo.

Blogmas Day 5 - Christmas wrrapping paper

Tuesday 5 December 2017

I don't know why, but I love wrapping Christmas presents, I love making them look cute AF and I love making the weird shaped items look as awful as possible. I've had a little hunt on the internet and found some of the best Christmas wrap that I could find.

I love stags, they're so majestic and this black stag wrapping paper from Sainsbury's is so good. Black and gold as a combination is just everything.

This is actually the wrapping paper I brought this year as I thought it would look cute under my tree as the colours / patterns just complimented each other so well. It was from M&S and only £6 for 3 1.5 rolls, tags and ribbons. 

If you've never been on the Oh Deer website, then you've been missing out. It's full of cute illustrated, cards, gift wraps, gifts and so much more. The had this amazing Gemma Correl Santa pug christmas wrapping paper which is just amazing.

I BLOODY LOVE DINOSAURS!! And Paperchase have the cutest dino wrapping paper. It's £3.75 for a roll but it is 3 for 2, so you can't complain really.

This scandi wrapping paper is adorable, it's so festive and I love anything scandi so this paper is just everything. Similarly to the dinosaur paper, its £3.75 and in paper chases 3 for 2 offer. 

What colour combinations are you going for this year?

Blogmas Day 4 - Christmas socks

Monday 4 December 2017

SOCKS GLORIOUS SOCKS!! I will never understand why this is such a universal gift, but neither the less I decided to search the internet to find the best Christmas socks I could. Because let's face it, if you're going to get socks why not have the best Christmas themed socks. 

Sleigh socks - New look - £2.49 - Sleigh my name. These are so cute and perfect for a low key Christmas celebration.

Boxer Dog socks - John Lewis - £12 -  Why are these considered Christmas socks? I don't know but they are as they came up when I searched for Christmas socks in the search bar, so I am counting them. Boxer dogs remind me of Christmas for some reason, I don know why ... Did Santa have one? 

Elf socks - Matalan - £5 - These made me laugh more than I would like to admit but aren't they amazing hahaha.

Ginger bread socks - Matalan - £1.75 - How adorable are these!! NEED!!

Santa Baby socks - Top shop - £3.50 - These are for people who want to have a subtly festive foot. I am into these!!

Do you have a favorite pair of Christmas socks?
