Just a few photos of the gingerbread cookies i made a few days ago. They were quite rushed so didnt turn out quite as i expected, but they still tasted great! Might have another go and bake some more for when all the family come round.
In other news i got an offer at Manchester university, which i am really excited about, because i had my interview less than a week ago! Just have to wait and see if i get anymore interviews or offers now.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and i cannot wait for christmas. Sooo excited.


Put some new shoes on

Urban outfitters - £35

Got some new shoes yesterday when i was out shopping in leeds. I have been looking for winter boots for ages. Bought some from urban outfitters online a while ago but they just didnt fit properly and had sold out in other sizes. Then i ordered a brown lace up pair from topshop which were too narrow, surprising though cause i have really narrow feet anyway! Tried a couple of pairs on in leeds yesterday but none were quite right till i saw these bargains under a clothes rack. They are so comfy i could wear them as slippers! And are fur lined all the way through so should hopefully keep my feet warm through these next cold months.

I am really looking forward to christmas now. Done all my shopping, all the decorations are up, relaxing into the holidays. Now just waiting till all the family arrive on christmas eve :) Its my favourite part about xmas because they live in london and new york i dont get to see them that often. Love having everyone together, and happy.

Knitted dress - Topshop
Glitter clutch - Urban Outfitters
Heels - Matalan

Just a couple of pieces i am lusting after at  the moment. The shoes i saw over at Claires blog, but i really need to get away from black heels! Maybe these in a different colour? Especially since most of my dresses are black. This dress is like the perfect dress for christmas. I  love the colour of it and all the detailing round the top. But its pretty expensive for what it is so i am hoping it goes in the sale or they have a big discount day. Ive been meaning to buy this clutch for a while and probably will now its free delivery. Its the perfect size for phone, cards and a bit of money. Just what i need to festive up an outfit when i go to town.
What do you guys love at the moment?


Sometimes its hard to follow your heart

Today we got out the christmas decorations. I put up a mini tree in my room and we started to put odd bits around the house. Then we went and bought our christmas tree! This has to be on of my favourite parts of christmas. The whole family gets involved trying to get it to stand up straight in the pot, a million attempts at getting the lights to work, choosing what the colour scheme will be, putting all the decorations on it, and finally the star on top. I will try and get a picture up later of the final product.

Had a great weekend this weekend with my girls. Had a night out last night which basically made my whole week. Really cant wait for the christmas holidays, more nights out and get to see all my family for christmas. The only downside is that i will have to revise for january exams :(

I popped into leeds this afternoon too, in the horrid rain. I went to get the UO boots i bought in a bigger size but they didnt have them! So i just had to return the beautiful boots. It was made slightly better that i found a bargain of a jumper in topshop which i will try get a picture of this week for you guys. Its so lovely, and even better because of the fact i nearly bought it when it was full price.
