December is heeeeeere!

If you're a Christmas nutjob like me then you'll know how exciting it is when the first of December finally comes and the countdown to the big day can begin! (I know I'm a day late, but my timekeeping is rubbish!)

Christmas is my favourite time of year, hands down, I literally cannot fault it - I'm even looking forward to the festive shifts at work this year, even though it means I'm working Christmas Day! - and I'm looking forward to spending the next few weeks drinking copious amounts of festive coffees and hot chocolates, going Christmas shopping, and most importantly getting those Christmas decorations up!

My delightful other half handed to me the other morning a lovely little package from Selfridges, and to my surprise, it was Ciaté London advent calendar! The very one I mentioned in my Advent Calendar blog post here! I know that he reads my blog posts sometimes but I didn't think for one moment that he'd be so thoughtful, and I could not wait to open it on December 1st!


Here is what was behind door number one...Headliner, a beautiful turquoise shade that I took no haste in adoring my nails with!
I think I'll probably change my nail polish everyday after opening this little beauty, and try them all out for size! I'm super excited for the festive shades and sparkly polishes that I know are hiding inside!



What are you most looking forward to about Christmas? Do you have any cute little traditions? Let me know in the comments below, link your blogs and follow me on Bloglovin if you want to keep up with my posts! I'll be launching a little giveaway when I reach 200 followers (not far off, eeeee!)

Always, Alice x
