Wow, what a way to round off the year; Christmas, Boxing Day and now we’ve just got New Years Eve to look forward to and then it’s all over with for another year, boo hoo. I’m actually off to a New Years Eve, Eve party tonight in Leeds but I really wanted to get this post up before I go as it marks the final WhatLauraDid post. After writing my catch up every Sunday, I’ve decided to retire it in order to make way for a new weekly post… the topic of which remains undecided. I’m quite impressed actually that I’ve been able to keep this up for a whole year.
It has been really quiet on WhatLauraLoves this week. I guess I just wanted a break over the Christmas period. I’ve worked so hard this year both on my blog and in my private life and this festive season has really been a great opportunity to relax. I did, however, FINALLY get to wear my new dress from Simply Be for a party on Christmas Eve, Eve. These Eve, Eve parties seem to be quite an occurrence in my life don’t they?
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas regardless of what you got up to and I really hope you had some lovely outfits to wear too. Hook me up in the comments if you’ve posted any outfit pics as I love looking to those for inspiration. Oh and I hope Santa was very good to you all too. I’ve had some tweets asking if I’ll do a ‘What I Got For Christmas’ post and like last year, I won’t be. That’s not to say I’ll not do any in years to come, I just feel that I am very lucky and privileged to receive what I have done but don’t want to share that with the web in one big post. There’s some out there who aren’t as fortunate as I and I really don’t want to cast a shadow of the real meaning of Christmas, which to me, is all about spending time with those you love.
One gift I will let you know about though, as it will be of some benefit to you, is my new camera, the Nikon 1 and studio set up which will enable me to take much better photos. I’m really looking forward to the new year as I want to really take my blog to the next level… but more about that on New Years Day!
For now though, after a hard week of partying, late nights and shopping, I’m off to have a bath with my bottle of Warm Cinnamon Nights by Treacle Moon in preparation for this evening. Crack on!
