Human Sea Christmas
On Christmas Eve I finished work at three and flew to King's Cross to catch the train back to my home town of King's Lynn. I was able to spend three nights at home with my family before heading back to London to work the first days of the sales. I hope you all had wonderful Christmases! Here are some rather belated pictures of mine.
A glimpse of the beautiful 1960s beaded party dress I found in Richmond's OXFAM shop last year for £20 which I wore to the Orla Kiely Christmas party. I still can't believe I own something this exquisite, it's entirely handmade and dripping with gold beads. I feel very lucky to own. You can see more pictures of me wearing it at the Christmas party I hosted last year here.
Always best paired with glittery party nails.
Playing with my parents' hyperactive new kittie, Lottie.
The tree I somehow survives carrying all the way back to my flat from my nearest high street. My back and arms were in agony for days after but it was totally worth it to have a real tree wrapped in fairy lights filling the room with the inimitable scent of spruce. I just need to stock up on baubles in the January sales now in preparation for next year.
Am I the only twenty-four year old still receiving a stocking full of gifts from Father Christmas...?
A perfect Yule log cake made by my younger sister Megan who added clementine juice to the buttercream filling. Too good for words!
My parents' lovely conservatory is decorated with fairy lights all year round.
My sweet little nephew Thomas.
I received these stylish enamel spoons from my parents along with a food blender. I will be eating a lot of soup in the new year.
