I know I'm a bit late with the Christmas related post, but I've been really busy, and something is better than nothing, right?
So, I had an amazing Christmas, which was quite surprising as there's been a lot of commotion in my house recently, but everyone pulled together for Christmas Day.
I got some really nice presents including, a Wii and Wii Fit, money, lots of clothes, tickets to see Derren Brown and loads of bits and bobs.I'll probably take some pictures in the clothes at some point but for now I'll just post some pictures of my Christmas Day.
Super Hula on the Wii Fit!
It was a really good day, probably my best christmas in a long time, and to add to the nice day I found out some great news!My Dad and Step-Mum are having a baby! Another sister or brother for me then! aha, soo excited for it.
Right, enough about Christmas, that was so5 days ago. It's New Years Eve tomorrow and I'm quite looking forward to a new start. I know, 'New Year, New start' is just about the cheesiest thing possible but I really am going to try to start fresh. 2009, what a year, I've had some amazing times with friends and some difficult times at home, but overall I think it's been a pretty good year. Here are some things that I have enjoyed, or have inspired me the most.
Music; The song that has inspired me most this year is Pixie Lott's cover of 'Use Somebody' (originally by Kings of Leon). It is such a beautiful song and when I heard it at the clothes show, along with some romantic ballet, i literally had goosebumps. Fashion; The designer that has inspired me the most is Christophe Decarnin for Balmain. I know this is probably really predictable, for two reasons, for one, Balmain is my favourite designer brand, and secondly his designs have been everywhere this year. I suppose this just proves how amazing Decarnin really is! Film; My two favourite films this year were, '500 days of Summer'and 'Where The Wild Things Are'! "I have a sadness shield that keeps out all the sadness. It's big enough for the both of us"
People; Someone that has caught my eye this year is Zooey Deschanel, since seeing her first in 500 Days Of Summer, not realising of course that she was in Elf too, I've been slightly obsessed with her. She is beautiful, an amazing actress and singer and a style icon. Family; The most exciting thing I've done with my family this year is go to Thailand. It was the best experience ever and I had loads of fun! I'm sure I'll remember it for years. Another thing is when I found out my Step-Mum was pregnant, this was only five days ago so pretty recent news. Best Christmas present ever! Friends; I've met some amazing people this year and had some brilliant times! Something I really enjoyed with friends this year is having a mini holiday to Wales with them, although it was raining most of the time it was such fun and all we did was laugh!
So, overall a pretty good year! Thanks to everyone who has followed/commented this year it's great support.
I haven't posted anything recently, i'm too busy. But heres an UPDATE. Well, it's DECEMBER and it has SNOWED. I am just amazed.. it never snows this close to christmas. So, I thought i'd put a few wintery shots up that i've taken, and some friends have taken, they aren't too good. I was too busy making snow angels! Well, I hope everyone is enjoying the snow, and has a brilliant christmas!!
Stood on a very icy corner, wrapped up, walking home..
This was taken by Frankie, when it wasn't snowing, went on a walk in woods with Maddie and Rosie..
Yeaaahh, so you've probably noticed I haven't been blogging much lately. It's so annoying, I start writing about something interesting and it turns out complete rubbish so I give up.
Agh, I cannot believe how soon Christmas is!
I went to get the tree last weekend and it looks so pretty. I notice how much of a perfectionist my Mum is at Christmas time especially, the tree has to be perfect. All the decorations match and there are no cheesy decorations or tinsel that you usually get on a Christmas tree (ha, no offense if your Christmas tree has tinsel and cheesy decor! I suppose that can also get you in the festive spirit!).
Some pictures from our trip to get the tree and from decorating it.
Soo, here are a few pictures my sister took of me, we got bored a couple of weeks back and thought we'd do a mini photoshoot. I was going to post them on here ages ago, but completely forgot.
Looking at these pictures makes me notice how small my top lip is. I swear I don't even have one.
I love Madonna in this new Dolce & Gabbana campaign.
I don't usually like her. I mean, over 50 and still wearing leotards, surely that's not good?!
Buttt, these are nice.
So, that's all for now.
PS, Lisa or Cathy, sorry I don't know which one it was :), asked me where the necklace in my previous post was from. It was from Me & Zena. Such an amazing shop!
