On Wednesday evening I headed to Uxbridge to go to dinner and then get ready for the midnight showing of Star Wars. I won’t give any spoilers at all but personally, I loved it.
Due to the super late Star Wars showing, I had Thursday off work to sleep, catch up on bits and then in the evening I had my hair cut and dyed in advance of Christmas.
On Friday I went and had my nails redone before Christmas and I am so happy with how they look as I’ve gone for a sparkly red which is so unlike what I usually go for.
Saturday saw me and my boyfriend get all dressed up and head into London for a nice steak meal followed by drinks at Piano Works for a few of my friends birthdays. It was a fun evening but it made me realize how not into clubs I am.
The week ended with a trip to the local Christmas market and a nice Italian dinner with my boyfriend and parents.
Five Great Things To Happen
For the very first time this week I started emailing travel brands about collaborations for next year and I got my first acceptance email which has made me feel so happy and proud.
I went to order a last minute extra Christmas present for my brother and I found out that it was on the sale so I was very happy with that and even managed to nab an extra item as well.
I have finished wrapping all of my Christmas presents which means I can relax a bit in the final week leading up to Christmas.
There was an awesome Sephora sale and about four items in my saved list were all on sale so as I had finished all my Christmas shopping I made an order and treated myself and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
I have an awesome new competition live over on my Twitter where you can win a pair of rollerskates from Skates.
Five Things Which Sucked
Due to the snow, I had to miss out on a blogging event on Monday evening as the trains were a bit messed up and I didn’t want to risk being stranded.
My train was canceled on Tuesday evening which meant I was late for my laser appointment and it also meant I couldn’t pop to the few shops I wanted to before my appointment.
I put on 2.5 pounds this week at Slimming World and I know I only have myself to blame as I wasn’t as strict and I did have an afternoon tea that week, but I really need to get back into it ahead of Christmas.
I was expecting a slightly easier final week of work leading up to Christmas but due to some projects etc it seems that this week will be as busy as ever.
I seem to currently have an issue with spam comments on my blog and while they don’t get published it’s so time-consuming going through pending to pick out the real one’s to publish.
Five Things To Do Next Week
Go and see Jumanji. I’ve been pretty excited about this movie for a while and I can’t wait to see it.
Schedule some blog posts for the first week of January so I don’t have to worry over the Christmas period.
Don’t go too crazy on bad food as I am out on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with friends and having catch ups.
Do a whole load of baking ready for Christmas so my family can indulge.
Make sure I take in all the festivities and relax a bit so I can enjoy them.
