Hello, Happy New Year to you! I know I'm late but I haven't had time to blog because this time of year is all about spending time with my family and I also had to work on New Year's Day which was a killer but I said I would so it's my fault really! I'm making up for it today because it's half two and I'm still in bed. For NYE my house has a get together thing with friends and family, way better than going to some overpriced, overrated club I say! Had a good night, the kids were trying to teach me the Carlton Dance (btw, RIP Uncle Phil :'( ) What did you get up to?

I wore this new dress that my Mum bought me for Christmas, I chose it but I kinda wish I'd sized down because it's a little big...suppose I'm just gonna have to stuff my face to fit into it! But it looks fine with a belt and is one of those good un's that can be worn for day or night. I'm sorry for the close ups of my face but look at the make up. My perrrrrrfect red for nails and lips, they're Chanel goodies gifted to me from my Nanny at Christmas. I was thinking I might do a separate post on these because they're that nice but I'm definitely no beauty blogger...however if some people would be interested in a beauty post now and then maybe I'll make that my blogging goal this year?

As for resolutions I have a couple...the first is to not be so lazy with my blog photos, so hopefully less mirror shots with the iPhone (although my Freddy case is the best!) My mum actually bought me this camera for Christmas which was a nice surprise so I definitely want to make an effort to use it lots. I also want to learn to drive and to shop less, I have a post on this coming up soon. Did you make any resolutions?

Anyway, hope you're getting back into the swing of things after all the madness of the holidays! I'll try and blog when I can, it's quite hard to at the moment plus I'm feeling ill (again, yawn!) but speak soon hopefully!

  14. Oh my god, Freddy in a sparkly bow tie is the best thing ever! He looks so dapper! :D
    Glad you had a nice NYE, I was stuck in feeling ill with a sickness bug, but at least it saved me some money, I wasn't really feeling the whole overpriced club thing this year anyway!
    The red is such a good shade on you & the lipstick looks really velvety too which I always think is much nicer than anything too glossy. I think if you want to post about them then do, it's always nice to mix things up. I'm not a beauty blogger either, but I do post beauty stuff now & again, I like to think of my blog as somewhere I can post anything I feel like raving about, whatever it is! :)

  15. your dress looks so beautiful! and I love your makeup :)

  16. Gorgeous you and gorgeous Freddy! The bow is a winner! x x x

  17. Hey Josie! This is my first time visiting your blog and your style is mesmerizing! Seriously. It's so effortless and classy that I'll definitely be visiting your blog over and over for style inspiration - and yes the lips/nails combo is to die for. I hope to keep in touch! xx

    Happy New Year,
