My mother generally waits until I get back from university to decorate our apartment, so I headed to Liberty and picked up a few last minute ornaments in the sale before blitzing the place with some fairy lights and serious sparkle (all whilst playing ‘Fairytale of New York’ on repeat, obviously). It was crazy, manic, even, in a lovely way.
First thing’s first; I hope you all had a merry little Christmas! Personally, I’ve spent the past two days lounging in front of far too many Disney movies and indulging in my first ever self-made (Vegetarian) roast dinner, which was refreshingly relaxed, in comparison to my usual Christmases, and made for a nice change.
In case you missed the various posts/tweets/instagrams, I snuck away on a day-trip to Paris a few days before Christmas to have a bit of a nose around a few Parisian Christmas markets and have one or two splurges on some French pharmacy essentials and goodies from Sephora (post to come next week), which was incredible, to say the least; there are tonnes of photos I’d love to share, but I won’t bore you with all my shots of food/market stalls/the exterior of pretty much every store on the Champs-Élysées!
Had to do the standard ‘look what I got for Christmas!’ shot; in this case, a leatherbound copy of both Peter Pan and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – now I’ve really got no excuse not to complete my reading challenge by the end of the year!
