Last night I went to my second Christmas party of the year held at my favourite shop in all the land, Fur Coat No Knickers. I certainly couldn’t go to a party in a dress shop without a fancy dress so I rocked up in this baby created for me by Alexandra King, accessorised with my sparkly ‘Airlia’ belt from Lara Hannah and added some extra sparkle (hey, it’s Christmas!) with my silver glittery brogues. Champers, mini cakes and stupid (in Charlotte‘s case pole) dancing ensued…

Oh yeah and I got Christmas hair. I do love the green ends muchly. We wanted to go for a ‘subtle’ green (that’s a bit of an oxymoron!) so we mixed a teeny drop of Crazy Colour Peacock Blue with a bottle of white dye. The pink kinda comes through it parts and makes bits look purple too. I love it! That Elbie is ever so clever.

My Lime Crime Great Pink Planet lippie matches the pink perfectly too huh? It’s a beaut of a colour in fact. So girly…

In other news, I’m getting insanely excited for Christmas are you? I actually can’t believe it’s next week. Crap, I must go start finish my Christmas shopping! Gareth & I have also bought our first ever Christmas tree this year, an actual real one not just a pathetic tiny plastic one from Paperchase. I feel mightily grown up. So yeah, it’s feeling very festive in chez Williams…and the cats LOVE it. I’m sure Rachel will get to the top of it in no time.

Anyway, Jeez I haven’t half rambled on in my hungover state! On to more important things….THURSDAY TREATS! Now can someone bring me a cup of tea and a Hob Nob please?
