My boyfriend is still eating turkey leftovers and I haven't even begun to enjoy some of my lovely generous gifts - there are a good few books just waiting for me! I was travelling between Belfast and Dublin the past few days doing all my visiting so relaxing today and tommorow with old movies and new books sounds idyllic.
I got this gorgeous dress in a new boutique, Pretty Flamingo. It's "Laundry Room", an Irish label which I was happy to find as I had only seen it in Arnotts in Dublin before and it's really so pretty! I love the gentle fit of the dress and the teal details on the shoulders. I embraced gold sparkly New Look shoes and patterned Betsey Johnson tights (a bargain TK Maxx find) for a bit of Christmas spirit.
The quality of these tights are great. After many failed attempts at not laddering spotty tights I love how durable these are and the extra detail of the lace seams up the side. Definitley want to try more Betsey Johnson tights.
A very beautiful gift...my ByBoe ring. I expect you'll notice this a whole lot on the blog in 2012 as I'm really in love with it. It just feels so delicate, I don't even think the photo does it justice!
My pomanders that I made for gifts, they smelt delicious. I hadn't made them since I was very young and enjoyed the trip down memory lane! (Look at my Mum's tray of mince pies and macaroons for Christmas Day drinks...I have eaten so much!)
I want to update my blog layout a tiny bit in the New Year. A new header, maybe get rid of the roses and just generally tidy it up a little bit. If you have any suggestions or ideas, I would really love to hear them. Implementing everything I want with my limited computer skills ever is another matter but I shall remain hopeful I can do something with it!
Take care in the last few days of 2011 xo
