Christmas Treats

My biggest treat this festive period has been the fact I've finally been able to move back into my little house. I had to move out in August for building work and damp proofing, and only just got back in.

I've been lucky to be off work this week (pre planned for Christmas preparation) which worked out really well for moving in and getting settled. 

So my instagram feed has been full of the little developments, and once things are finally sorted I will be showing you all the transformation! Until then, I wanted to share with you the treat that was last night!

Sounds enticing, doesn't it!

Firstly, I managed to score a Yankee Candle Advent Calender in the Sale, so have a bit of a stock pile of the various festive scents! Last night was time for the White One (which I think was the Marshmallow One. Or maybe the Snow One. It's hard to tell!)



I had also been lucky to win a gel manicure from the lovely CUTEicles (like her Facebook page here)! 

I've never had gels done before, so I was a little bit of a novice! 

Rachel was lovely, and quickly set to work in my kitchen:


She had the fancy lamp thing, and after the hard task of choosing the nails, she set to work!

I am absolutely bowled over by the end result:




So cute and Christmassy, and not something I would have been able to do myself. It was lovely to be pampered in my own home, and so nice to just natter away. 

This is certainly something I'd think of getting done on a regular basis - and heading into my sitting room afterwards, it was just filled with the sweet smell of White (I really don't know what scent it was - they need some kind of sticker on the bottom!)

Much love my lovelies,
