Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fantastic 2010, I'm really excited for what 2011 will bring. I've not written any resolutions as yet, but I might do, I just have a problem sticking to them!

Last night I stopped in with my boyfriend, eating party food and watching the fireworks on the tv. It was my first New Years in for years but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it - I'm not one for standing outside in the cold when the clock strikes 12! It might sound a bit boring but I really think New Years is a tad overrated, every night out I've had on New Years has been a bit of a let down!

Having said that, I had a really lovely New Years day; my sister and her fiancé came round and we had a lovely family roast dinner (or veggie roast in my case) which was delicious and a great way to bring in the new year. I wore my New Look Peter Pan leopard print collar dress which I got for Christmas and absolutely love, I've always had a thing for Peter Pan collars, even if they do make me look a bit like a little girl! I'm hoping to do a kind of Christmas present/sales shopping post soon as I've loved reading everyone's over the past few days, even if they do make me a tad jealous! Sorry I haven't blogged over Christmas, things have been manic! I hope to get back to it now it's the new year - blogging more is definitely on my list of resolutions!

I've been experimenting with false lashes a bit more recently, mainly due to the fact I managed to get my hands on the Girls Aloud Eyelure set with all the lashes in for half price (£12.50). I'm actually wearing the Nadine ones in the above pics - can you tell?I love false lashes but recently have been buying the cheap ones which is where I've been going wrong - Eyelure's are seriously THE best quality and therefore so much easier to apply. I'm not very good when it comes to applying but using these makes my life so much easier - so glad I got the set! Definitely recommend trying to scout one out if you can!

I hope everyone had a fabulous new years eve/day, and I wish you all the best for 2011! How did everyone bring in the new year?

  3. I agree- New Years is so overrated. Don't think I've ever had a really good night out for NYE, I feel like I'm being forced to enjoy it even if it's a rubbish night! Sounds like you had a lovely time though, and happy new year!x

  7. I agree eyelure do the best lashes!!! I really want the shu uemura eyelash applicator, it looks like it would make applying them so much easier though it's a wee bit expensive for what it is! I also love what you're wearing on your lips! xx

  13. I know what you mean it is an overrated occasion, hardly compares to Christmas :). This is the first year I really went out and did anything somewhat special but I did end up sleeping till two on New years day so didn't do much special :). x

  19. I buy duo eyelash glue from mac but get cheap eyelashes off ebay about 20 pairs for a fiver and they always look good. I find it's better to have good quality glue than good quality lashes xx

  22. Aww, I feel the same way about NYE being overrated. I usually work NYE, so this year was my first official NYE with a date (my boyfriend). lol So that made it a little more exciting! :P

  26. I'm not in it for the outfits, or the midnight kiss, or the ball drop. I am in it for the public acceptance of me drinking straight out of my own champagne bottle all night. Otherwise I would tend to agree with it being overrated.
