No7 Advent Day 24

Christmas EVE! Number 24 door! 
It is nearly hereeee! Yay! 
Midnight Lash mascara
New mascara is always brilliant for me, and this one seems pretty good after using it today. The packaging is glittery and festive looking! Excellent door again. 

Blogmas : Day 24 - Christmas food

Christmas time is all about enjoying great food for me, and this year there has been so much! So i thought i'd post about the best nights i've had this festive season! 
Zaap Thai food plates
Delicious food in Leeds at Zaap Thai, sampling their amazing dishes filled with tasty treats! We ordered so much& only spent £15 each between 3 of us! Will be heading there again soon! 
Pret a Manger coffee and mince pie
I love a coffee stop in the middle of a shopping spree and with Pret serving 99p filter, or tasty mint hot chocs, its a must for me! This combo of coffee(or tea) & mince pie is £1.99 this festive season! 
Chocolate dessert
Our staff do consisted of great food at San Carlo in Leeds,  and only 3 of us... ha. Bah humbug to the rest of the office crew! The food is pricey but so worth it! 
Food layout on table
Our Italian friend had is round for a festive noghy of present swapping and delicious Italian treats! Brushetta is AMAZING! 
Christmas treats made with bacon& pastries! 
Lemon biscuits with choc chips! 
Of course i am super excited for my Christmas meal tomorrow, but the build up to the big day has been equally as great! Yum! 
Also, just to put the icing on top of Christmas, i've lost more weight!! Best Christmas ever?! :)

Blogmas - No7 Advent Day 20

Day 20! Which means only 5 days to Christmas! Yay! 
A lip product from the Protect& Perfect range is behind todays door! 
I love a good lip product and i am sure this will be nourishing for my smoochers! 

Blogmas Day 20

Me& some work friends headed to San Carlo in Leeds, as a festive treat to ourselves, as there was no Christmas party this year! Boo! 
Anyhow San Carlo is an Italian restaurant which is excellent for seafood dishes and steak! 
For starters i had avacado with crab, and it was so tasty! 
For mains i had the above rib eye steak with fries and grilled avacado, cause i bloody love avacado!! 
After the huge portion i wasn't going to get dessert, but this had a cute backstory about it being their grandmas receipe, amd chocolate is a winner for me! 
It was soooo good, served with vanilla ice cream. Yum! 
I would definitely recommend San Carlo, even thiugh it is slightly pricey, its so worth treating yourself this Christmas!!

Blogmas - home made beauty crackers

I decided to make my own beauty crackers a couple of years ago. All year i collect beauty samples, and they are the perfect gift when doing not too much. 
I split between 6 crackers as there is a dinner with my girls next Weds, where we're meeting for our monthly catch up and to have a glass of festive fizz no doubt! As we all have tonnes of people to buy for we don't usually gift each other, so crackers filled with freebies seemed the perfect option! 
I grabbed a pack of crackers from the pound shop, to fill myself as the faff of either make them from scratch or getting a cracker making kit is a pain, and filling the existing ones is easier! 
I've done them and put them in a festive bag ready for next Weds! 

There is plentyyy of time before the big day, so have a go yourself! :) 

Blogmas : Zaap Thai Leeds

I had heard great things about the new Thai restaurant in Leeds, which is at the bottom of the Grand Arcade, in the building that used to br Rios club! 
Filled with quirky Eastern memorabilia and neon signs the atmosphere is special as soon you walk in! 
There is SO much choice on this menu! 
We went for a mixture if everything from pork, and chicken and steamed vegetables. It was all tasty! 
The plates here are so colourful! 
The array of colours is eye popping and it taste as good as it looks! 
Chicken toast was a fave!! 
Complimentary prawn/ chilli crackers tied us over until the food arrived! 
The table across from us. 
There was a celebration at the table across from us, and out came the tradition drums, with lots of singing from the staff! 
I really loved the experience here and how much it was at Zaap, and so so mouth wateringly good food! 

Freebies grabbed in the past week

Who doesn't love a cheeky free sample? I for one, like to try before i buy and so freebies are the things i look for on brand counters o...
