A Little Christmas Roundup13:04
As I was noticeably absent during the Christmas period, I thought I'd do a little post showing you what I got up to. I was planning on doing lots of posts over Christmas but I was just super busy and never seemed to find the time. I had lots of outfit posts that ended up in the trash can because the lighting was just way too poor and I kind of just wanted to take a little break to just enjoy Christmas and spend some time with family and friends, although I ended up waking up full of cold on Christmas day and have spent the last two weeks trying to kick it. I'm finally on the mend now though and motivated to get myself more organised.
A lot of my time was spent baking, here are just a few of the cakes I made over the christmas period:
I'm hoping to get my baking blog up and running soon where I will be able to share my cakes more often and in more detail, especially as they seem to be taking up a lot of my time lately.
Dress - New Look
Belt - ASOS
Shoes - Matalan
I did intend to do an outfit post on this outfit I wore for a Christmas afternoon tea I went to, but as you can see the lighting wasn't great and this picture was the best of a bad bunch. The afternoon tea was delicious though and the chocolate orange cake was my favourite, it was amazing!
Then the Saturday before Christmas this little bundle of cuteness was born, my baby nephew Isaac. So as you can imagine not much at all got done when he was around besides a lot of cuddling, coo-ing and aah-ing.
Dress - Dorothy Perkins
My Christmas day outfit. Again I planned to do a full outfit post for this outfit but this is the only picture where my face didn't look all red and puffy from my cold and I don't even have any shoes on. Fashion blogger fail! Although we don't really go anywhere for Christmas I still like to dress up in a nice dress, does anyone else do this? We usually just have a nice big family dinner and then have friends round in the evening for drinks and nibbles.
Every year I wish for snow at Christmas, Christmas is my favourite time of year and for it to snow on Christmas day would be the icing on the cake for me. Now it didn't snow on Christmas day but as soon as I saw it snowing on Boxing day I was straight out of my new onesie and out walking the dog in the snow. It was the perfect ending to Christmas for me.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a happy new year!!
