* new year’s eve essentials including fuzzy socks *

Goodness I miss Christmas. I find myself feeling like this every year, mourning the loss of my all time favourite month, holiday and season all at once.

The past week has always been a bit of an odd one in my eyes, a sort of limbo between Christmastime and reality, almost as though a lot of people, like me, have to take time to readjust to life without the decorations, celebrations and festive fun.

Needless to say I’ve been taking full advantage of all my favourite Christmassy things – holiday drinks at Starbucks, mulled wine, fires, decorations, cinnamon candles – and while I’ll be devastated to see them all go, I’m actually pretty darn excited about what the coming weeks will bring…

Five favourites

Place: Bed, definitely. This week has been long and I plan on spending a good amount of time catching up on lost sleep this weekend!

Food: G’s steak. He made it on New Year’s Eve and it was super.

Experience: Ringing in the New Year in a new place with my favourite person ever.

Read/watch: It’s actually more of a listen – Serial. Now I wouldn’t class myself as a podcast person at all (whatever that even means) but this, as far as I’m concerned, is a must-listen.

Beauty bit: Another lip product. This time it’s the Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion. That plummy berry tone is just ace.

Have a good weekend everyone and don’t forget to follow me over on Instagram and @CharlieLanks!

    Ooooh I spot the Kiko Water Eyeshadow! Nice and shiny!

    Well in this corner of the world the holidays are not really over until the 6th, so I still have a few days of family lunchs and so on. It is harder on the figure though!
