Seriously, enough with all the eating now

Hello!  Hopefully you've had a restful break and are now finding yourself contemplating how much glitter you can get away with for New Year's Eve (I know I am).

Normal blog post service should resume over the next few days, but in the meantime, I wanted to squee excitedly over a few of the presents I received for Christmas.  I was expecting more beauty related stuff, but apparently I'm too exacting and already own too much stuff to be easy to buy beauty for.  My stepkids did manage it though - the nail polishes are from my stepdaughter Leilah, who insisted that I should have glittery nails, and the Estee Lauder Sensuous Noir is from my stepson Lou.  Amazingly, he smelled his way through the whole Estee counter before settling on Sensuous Noir because it smells like me - and indeed, it's a rich, deep, woody fragrance which I already really like.

My husband bought me the red Hush Puppies, and the 1928 vintage style dangly earrings and necklace.  My sister-in-law gave me the watch, another vintage style thing by Sekonda, encrusted with marcasites (which I love).  My husband also treated me to a couple of tops from Freddie's of Pinewood.

What did you get for Christmas?


  1. I have those shoes. They're beautiful and super comfy :)

    1. I already have them in black - they are so comfy I'd happily own them in every possible colour!
