une. Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Yep, I'm one of those annoyingly excitable people who counts Christmas Eve Eve as a holiday ;) I hope you're all celebrating appropriately and scoffing insane amounts of food as I shall be! I can't believe Christmas is already almost here: sometimes I think I like the build-up to the big day more than Christmas Day itself. Anyone else?

deux. It's been a good week for food so far, as expected. Yesterday I went to Prezzo with two of my friends for a catch-up meal and gift-exchanging. Omnomnom... And today I'm going to Ask with my Mumma for a late lunch after her shift at work (on her day off again, gawd!) before heading home to get ready for tonight's Christmas work meal.

trois. Still haven't heard back from those people at DSA about my driving test. I was supposed to be contacted about a rescheduled test, but nope, haven't heard anything yet!

quatre. I'm currently looking through my London College of Fashion prospectus! EEEE! I know I'm only in my second year, but I'm looking at doing a short course over the summer to boost my CV, and in the current situation with tuition fees and University places, it might be more valuable to me in the long run (:

cinq. Signed the contracts for my house next year! For all the lovely readers who were concerned about me living with strangers, don't fret, I'm actually getting a house with my best friend now, as her housemate is leaving in July.

six. Obviously I won't have the time to blog over the next few days, so I'm going to take this chance to wish you all a great Christmas! I'm looking forward to seeing food-filled posts afterwards, so don't disappoint me ;) I've scheduled my 2010:part two in photos for Boxing Day, so if you're not busy, don't forget to keep an eye out for that!

  5. Well, Christmas Eve is the main day of Christmas for me, we get presents in the evening of December 24th (and I'm pretty happy about it, I can't imagine waiting till the morning, haha) and I think not only in the Czech republic but in the whole Central Europe people do so :)

    and that's why Christmas Eve Eve is one of the most hectic days of year, haha. i'm trying to clean up my room since early morning.. i wish it could clean up on its own, lol

    Merry Christmas!

  22. Eleanor: Thank you! I've been so unsure about it, but I'm finally starting to like it (: Yes indeed, I've started the over-eating early, and can tell I'll regret this by next week! Hope you have a fabulosa Christmas!

    Milly: Thank you Milly! Merry Christmas sweet, I hope you have a wonderful week of festivities!

    Hannah: Thank you :D Merry Christmas!

    Dan: Thanks lovely, hope you have a lovely Christmas (:

    Jenny: Thank you! Yes it is my natural colour albeit a little Photoshopped where I changed the curves and settings of the picture haha. My natural colour is dark brown with a slightly gingerish tint! Also, that sounded like a line from Mean Girls (: Happy Christmas!

    Caz: You too sweet, have a great Christmas :D Aaah I did check that earlier, and there's been a mix-up as my details show that I've taken the test? :/ Such a hassle but now I'm having to wait until the 27th and ring up! Thank you lovely <3

    Merry Christmas!

  26. Yes, I think the countdown is more exciting than the actual day itself, haha. Maybe it's just the feeling of it being the holidays?

  27. Kei Kei: Thank you (: Merry Christmas lovely! x

    Amaris: Definitely! I love the excitement of counting down and preparing presents, decorating the house etc. Hope you have a lovely Christmas! x

  28. A few of my friends have had theirs rescheduled too so hopefully you can get yours sorted! The short course and new house sounds good - exciting 2011 for you then! Merry Christmas!! :) x

  29. Did you recently cut your hair? It looks lovely - very different and somewhat edgy! Hmmm the people at DSA sound really irresponsible or perhaps they're just enjoying themselves too much over the festive season. Maybe you should give them a call back after the holidays? Woah! London college of fashion :D It sounds like such a wonderful place. What short course are you planning to take in the summer?

    Happy holidays dear!

    Daisy/Samantha: Yep I had it cut two weeks ago! I want it a little bit longer.. but that will happen in time! I think the whole system has been disrupted, I'm sure they have a huge backlog of tests to rebook, but I want to know the details in advance so I can be prepared! I'm planning on studying either Merchandising and Buying, Styling or Marketing :D Merry Christmas sweetie <3

    Aysh: Thank you! Awh that means a lot to hear such kind words about my blog (: Hope you have an amazing Christmas and eat lots of good food!

  36. looking adorable as ever! awh gutting about your test being cancelled, i postponed mine when i had mine, and then it was pushed back a week because of the weather. it was so unnerving as i'd psyched myself up for the test and then it was put back

    hope you have a great christmas lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Heather-Louise: Aaah probably! I've worked a few shifts but they're all horredously long (12-3, 5-11) which is so annoying, because I'm too exhausted to think about anything remotely Christmassy after! Thanks lovely, hope you have a great Christmas. xxx

    Lily: Thanks lovely! (: I kept dithering over postponing mine, I wasn't confident at all, then felt a lot more ready to take the damn thing only for it be cancelled. Oh life! Thank youu, hope you have a lovely Christmas and get all the Christmas shopping done! xx
