December Confessions + WIW

GAP Ankle Strap block heels

Morning ladies & happy Christmas Eve :-)  No doubt excitement is reaching fever point in your households especially if you have young children.  I must admit I'm very excited - you've got to love that Christmas feeling & good spirit haven't you.

So lots to do today including preparing the veg & cooking the turkey for the big day itself before heading to the pantomine (he's behind you!) & then onto the local village club for drinks & festivities.

It's just a quick one from me with a note of my recent  purchases.  The first of which are these lovely block heel strap shoes, which are incredibly comfy & something I just couldn't resist with a 50% discount code :-)
Puressentiel Rest & Relax Spray

My next purchase isn't fashion related at all but I've been using this for about a month & a half & it really works.  I'm a dreadful sleeper often only getting 5 hours a night but since using this room spray   I've been getting 6½ to 7 hours so it's made a huge difference.  I actually stumbled across it after someone recommended their Purifying Air Spray, which has a wonderful fresh scent that's good for purfiying the air & stopping germs spreading, so another useful one to keep in the house at this time of year.

Zara oversized Roll neck sweater

I also grabbed this oversized jumper that I'd previously bought in grey as it's perfect for throwing over leather leggings.

And my final purchase was a bit of a pre-birthday treat to myself & something I've had on my wishlist for a while.  I'm blaming the discount code that popped into my inbox & a good month selling some unwanted wardrobe pieces on eBay :-)

Charlotte Olympia Kitty Velvet Flats

Back to today & it's a morning of doing, prepping the veg & cooking the turkey ready for turkey sandwiches after the pub this evening so it's a simple look with some stars thrown in for good measure.

Off out later to kick start the celebrations with a trip into Birmingham for the pantomine before coming back & meeting up with friends for a drink to see Christmas Day in.  Needless to say I'll be dressing up a little more for that so I'll share my outfit on Instagram & Facebook later.

Have a truly magical Christmas Eve with your loved ones & I'll see you in the morning.
