It's the Christmas holidays which meant my week was filled with celebrating my 21st Birthday, Christmas, ending up in a few too many food comas, visiting family and seeing friends who are back from university. One of the biggest moments of the week was getting all my hair snipped off. Yes, you heard correctly, I had my first hair cut in four years and I decided I wanted a completely different look, so I opted for a long-ish bob and I don't regret it one bit!

Christmas is over and everyone is feeling a little glum, short of cash and rather stuffed from the annual festive over-eating but one thing we can always rely on to add a little spring to our step, are the huge sales that hit our high street on boxing day. Being the shopaholic I am, I couldn't help but have a little look on ASOS when they notified me about their online sale. I made a few purchases, so I thought I'd share them with you along with a couple of extra items that caught my eye.

1. Nikki Strange: Sky Souffle A5 Notebook, £4.99 (buy here)
I randomly came across designer, Nikki Strange, online the other day and I have fallen in love with her pattern designs which are available on notebooks, phone covers and frames to add a splash of colour to any room. As someone who makes lists for just about everything, I particularly took an interest in her notebooks; Sky Souffle being my favourite design.

I haven't written a week in photos post since last month so technically, this is my month so far in photos (doesn't sound as good does it..) and what a month it's been. Minus the freezing cold whether and the shorter day, I love December; there is always a great sense of community around the festive season, not to mention both Christmas and my Birthday fall within the same week of one another. I had my final few Christmas Blogger parties in the beginning of the month, including ASOS and rewardStyle. Now all the events in London have died down for the next few weeks, I have been enjoying buying gifts for friends and family; wrapping presents (which according to my boyfriend, takes me way too long compared to most) and celebrating my 21st Birthday!

1. Topshop: Velvet Babydoll Dress by Boutique, £95 (buy here or similar from boohoo.com here)
I'm partial to a bit (ok, a lot) of velvet during the festive season and I have fallen head-over-heels with this velvet dress from Topshop; not only is it velvet but it's in my favourite style of dress and in a gorgeous rich blue colour. If you're like me, skint before Christmas and weeping at the price tag, why not head over to boohoo here where they have a similar dress for a fraction of the cost.
