Oh, hi! I was never under the impression that the week before Christmas was ever going to be a quiet one. There’s just so much to do, right? I wasn’t quite prepared for this crazy week though! I’ve spent a lot of time this week seeing friends before the holidays kick in, slurping lots of hot drinks, making plans and exchanging gifts. It’s the loveliest kind of busy!
Mid-week I trotted over to BLOW to get a haircut and came out feeling like a
new woman naughty 1920s vamp! Ooh la la! I’d been toying with the idea of a short, sleek bob for a little while now, and I’m so happy that I took the leap. It’s Velma Kelly-meets-Mia Wallace-meets-Enid Coleslaw and I am Ob. Sessed! I couldn’t wait to show it off, and go out somewhere fancy – luckily I didn’t need to wait long as the following night I found myself in the beautiful National Galleries of Scotland attending Watch and Wolf’s special screening of The Wizard of Oz. You can expect a post with ALL the details of that magical evening in the new year though…
Today, I’ve spent a lot of time wearing festive eyewear, drinking delicious concoctions at Browns (the Diamond Fizz is pretty spectacular!) and planning the next few days. We can’t wait to welcome some friends into our new pad tomorrow and get the last preparations for Christmas finished. What are you up to this weekend?
Here’s a few Christmas-themed hi-fives to get you started…

Merry and bright,
