Insta-Updates - It's Christmas!

1. Selfridges had a 20% off weekend. Two mascaras, a Creme De La Mer lipbalm and a Clinique freebie promotion. Self gifting all the way. The lipbalm is a life changer, worth every penny although I'll never be able to go back to a simple pot of Vaseline now.

2. Vegan coconut cake and catch-ups with school friends at Drink Shop & Do. One of my favourite places in London to spend a rainy afternoon.

3. Itsu sushi happy hour. I get really excited on days when I leave work at the perfect time to get half price sushi on my way home.

4. Burrito pot in Burrito Mama. Burrito taste minus evil bread - yay! 

5. Solo cinema night to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Felt very indulgent but loved it (the film and the single lady evening).

6. Breakfast in Costa - chocolate orange mocha. Because starting your day on a sugar high is really sensible. This was nice but I won't be sad to see the back of all the Christmas coffees.

7. Byron - butternut squash salad and corguette fries because I am suffering from burger fatigue and cannot get enough of butternut squash at the moment. Tell me if I start turning orange soon.

8.  The table is set for the Dream Team Christmas lunch. The food was so-so but the gossip was amazing as always!

9. Dream Team Christmas - gin, Christmas tunes and some of my favourite people all in one place. Real Christmas has a lot to live up to.

10. Taking my parents to Wahaca for the first time - go off menu with the churros and request a portion with salted caramel sauce.

11. Kiehls samples to try from the counter at Terminal 5. 

12. German treats - a giant bar of Ritter Sport and Haribo shaped like German buildings. Is there anything better in life? (No there isn't).

What Christmassy things have you been enjoying?


  1. self gifting all the way :-) My Christmassy things have involved christmas films and lots of food and drink - looking forward to some cocktails soon!

  2. I hope you had the best Christmas lovely lady! <3
