Hello again everyone!!!

Yesterday was probably the first time we had the chance to do something together as a family for a quite a while since I've been working over the weekends so we made the most of it. Although it was absolutely freezing outside, we put on our warm clothing and didn't let the cold weather stop us from enjoying the day. It was bright outside early in the morning and it looked like it was going to last until al least 4 pm so I've decided that we went to Newstead Abbey (to visit Lord Byron ;)) but as the day went on, it started getting dark but still we went anyway.

I've been wanting to visit the place in the past 9 years that I've been living in the UK but everytime we planned of doing so, something has always happened... this time... we didn't plan it.

So my dearies... let me share you the photos we took yesterday.

The place was absolutely gorgeous and will definitely be back next summer as I can just imagine how beautiful it is when the flowers are in bloom. I cannot believe that it took me 9 years to visit the place when it's only about 20 minutes drive from where I live. I suppose it happens... we tend to take places for granted when it is within our local area. To those of you who haven't seen the place yet, I highly recommend it whether you're on your own, with a family, with your love one (it really does look romantic)... if you're a poet or a writer who seek for an inspiration... give this place a try. Newstead Abbey can actually be accessed via public bus that can be caught at the Victoria Centre bus station in town... so there you go.

Party time!!!


Christmas is time to party!!! So my dear friends... here I am, sharing some photos I've taken during our staff party held last Monday night at a local venue. It was a great night although I was a great night and I'm telling you guys... nurses do know how to party unlike the stereotype saying that we are angels ;)

It was a great night started with a 3 course meal and dance all night. It was fun having to dance on the table although I was cautious as I was wearing a pair of sky scrapers. I didn't quite fancy the idea of falling on the floor specially wheb the tables were a little narrow. It really is funny seeing the other side of your colleagues. You see things you don't expect to see in them and it was hilarious!!!

For the night, I've decided to dress down... Yes, I was the only one who turned up in jeans amongst the girls but I would've not done it the other way. For the night, I wore an ASOS corsette, Jane Norman skinny jeans and my Gucci shoes (of course!). I also wore accessories from Accessorize and the bracelette sis Shen has sent me last Christmas. It was a fab night.

Below are the photos I've taken during the night...

It was a great night although I had to work the night after... never mind... someone had to work ;)
What about you guys... any exciting party for the Christmas season? I'd love to hear from you. I love parties and I love hearing (or reading)exciting stories about parties. I think that is Christmas is all about... having a blast!!!

Hello everyone!!! First and foremost, let me extend my million apologies for not being able to update this blog in the past couple of months. What can I say? I've been extremely busy with work and with the purchase of our new home, which you'll hear more from me about it in the near future. House hunting is not easy I'm telling you. My boyriend and I have once spent all day viewing 12 properties and at the end of it, I was extremely exhausted. I would never want to do it again believe me. Anyway, after viewing numbers of properties, we eventually found THE ONE that we both fell in love with and we can't wait to move. We've been told that we might be moving in towards middle of next month but anything could happen so I'm not holding my breath over it hahahaha!

Anyway, I really missed blogging so much and visiting posts as well. Hopefully, things will get better for me after the Christmas season in terms of blogging.

You might be wondering what has made me decide to get back to blogging again... well well well... I thought I'd share with you a few (Yes, sis Nikki... a few!) photos taken during the Freemason Christmas party my boyfriend and I have attended last week. Please feel free to browse :)

That was me glammed up for the night ;)
