Partying – I have had a great week, there's been lots of wonderful gatherings over the last week or so – the QVC Christmas Party where we danced all night, the presenter lunch where my Secret Santa pressie was a Marmite Cook Book (thanks Julia!) and meeting friends for a few glasses of festive cheer.
Then of course, presents – presents, presents everywhere! I always do it and go over the top, I just get carried away! I did, however, do some very wise shopping – mostly on QVC and I took advantage of the Yankee, Prices, Thorntons and Elemis TSV's buying several of each – a couple of days ago my living room looked a bit like the QVC warehouse – now these have all been wrapped and delivered, phew!!
As well as the Christmas celebrations my friend Alexa and I went to Paris for lunch! Sounds so decadent doesn't it?! It was actually a birthday present for what she calls her "30-10" birthday – only thing is it took us 3 years to actually get on and do it, ah well, better late than never!
We had a great day, a champagne breakfast on Eurostar, a visit to the Salvador Dali exhibition in Montmartre, a boat trip on the Seine and then the highlight – lunch at 'Kong' a gorgeous restaurant with the most magnificient view over the river and the Pont Neuf. Alexa is a huge fan of 'Sex and the City' and this restaurant was used as a location in the final series, so it was a real buzz to be there!!
So, there we have it, my final blog of 2011. Oh and by the way, I will continue my skincare blog in 2012 and fingers crossed you will also see me on more skincare shows. Thank you so much for your support this year and whatever you are up to over the festive season I wish much happiness and peace to you and yours.
Stay well and much love from the bottom of my heart,
