O Christmas Tree

I’ve never had my own real Christmas tree before. I’ve only helped out with the tree at my parents’ house (my mum really enjoys decorating it) and then last year we just had a tiny, tiny one. This year my flatmate brought home a real tree, so we went all out in decorating it. It warms my heart to come home and see it! Simple pleasures. I hope everyone had a good Christmas!



Giving into flights of fancy

I know you’ve all missed Bethany while she’s been living it up across the water in MontrĂ©al (I know I have). I had really burnt out by the time Christmas rolled round, but spending my first day off of the festive season with this scorchin’ hot thang soon remedied that. We hit up two of our regular Soho haunts, Maison Bertaux (for the gorgeous cakes) and Candy Bar (for the amazing cocktails), and laughed ourselves silly.

In the spirit of the new year, I’m going to share my most important resolution for 2011: to be more frivolous. With weekend trips to Dublin and Prague already booked, it’s looking hopeful that I’ll keep this one. As I’ve ambitiously named this blog Guide To A Charmed Life, I figure I should strive towards living a life as charmed as possible. And if I can’t be frivolous at 22, when can I be?



Oh the weather outside is frightful…

My friend Anna and I went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park for work this week. We took a couple of disposable cameras with us (I didn’t fancy subjecting my SLR lens to the bitter cold) and the combination of winter greyness and cheap camera produced some rather cute, retro results. Winter Wonderland is a lot of fun, despite the cold, and the smell of mulled wine and German confectionary definitely put us in the festive mood.

Merry Christmas everyone!
