So these pictures were taken at the stroke of midnight -well ok, around 10 past- on Christmas day. You see, my mamma's birthday is Christmas Eve and every year we go out to a resturant to celebrate, and usually (it is a surprise if we are not) we are the last to leave. *cue a loud 'Merry Christmas' celebration with the staff* haha.
I went for the black and white look and a real high bun that had my head toppling over! I received so many compliments from my family and mum's friends-I got the sophisticated stylish look down to a T they said :D I must say the lipstick finished it off!
The clutch was a great steal that I found at at car boot sale in Kingston-it only cost me £1.50!! I need to use it more often! Haha!
My necklace was brought in a Chinese subway market, near the university I was studying at last year (can JUST get away with saying last year haha) in Shanghai. It was love at first sight as its intricate detail was admirable (I wore it before in this old post) and I knew it had to be mine- that was a steal too! As I managed to haggle it down to £4!

We went to a Vietnamese restaurant in Hoxton called 'Anh Dao' and we had a great time. (That area is know as Pho mile- so there are lots of Vietnamese restaurant to choose from, my mum went to this one before and loved it). Ordering lots and lots of starters that made us full, but somehow we had space for the mains. I got the classic Pho- and it was delicious. And then the night ended with the staff playing an Vietnamese version of 'Happy Birthday' that was funny as it went on for a while- the manger even said to us don't blow out the candles yet, the song hasn't finished. All in all, a wonderful night was had by all, especially my mother. May God continue to bless her.

So I hope you lovelies had a wonderful Christmas- I spent it with family stuffing my face, watching television whilst being comfy in a Spiderman onsie!! :D
HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS! Let's make it a great one!
Until next time, stay blessed.
