How to Host the Perfect Pre-Christmas Party 

Ok, before I start this, I’m talking party in the small gathering with a couple bottles of (in this case mulled) wine sense rather than a full on rave which will have the neighbours banging on the walls to keep the noise down.  Ed and I aren’t really the type to cause a noise disruption and our friends are now at the ages where they’re for the most part settled...

Beauty – Christmas Party Makeup Look 

I have already been to one Christmas party this year and I actually loved how my makeup looked for it. So in advance of my second Christmas party on Saturday I thought I would go over my festive party season makeup for anyone else looking for some inspiration.  My Primer is L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying base, which goes on really smoothly and leaves a soft canvas for the rest of the...

My Monthly Plans – November 

I can’t believe how quickly October went!

In the end I actually bought a dress for a Christmas party...

My Monthly Plans – November

I’m such a huge kid at heart that this is at present more exciting to me than Christmas, and that’s saying something! So, what other plans do I have this month? Well they all kind of pale in comparison but...
