twinkle twinkle

Somehow the only photos I got last night were on instagram so excuse the not so good quality! By the time I got away from work at 5:30 I was so ready to glam up and get my party ON! I’d had my outfit planned for some time: Ax Paris dress (c/o and a winner the second it arrived). Metallic tights from New Look, Patent black and gold flats from Matalan (not seen) and my Topshop cat ears which attracted most of the attention!

It was a really good night, I work with the most amazing people and they know how to party! I may have disgraced myself a little at the end by switching from gin and tonic to red wine from the bottle but it seemed a great idea at the time!

I think the only downside was getting utterly drenched on the walk from the carpark to the venue, being on the crutches meant I couldn’t hold up an umbrella…thank goodness for hand dryers and hair that finally dries as I want it to without much prompting.

Sorry to the folk I randomly started texting, making less and less sense…I don’t drink often, that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.

Have you had your party yet? What did you get up to?

I’m fortunate never to have realllly embarrassed myself at one but I’d love to know if you have!

    I think it’s perfectly acceptable to shame yourself at a work Christmas party.. most people have done it and it only gets forgotten about when the next thing comes along. I sound like I’m speaking from experience here, right?

  17. I’m nursing a hangover today, it was the Mr’s work do last night and I completely got drunk! And it was wine that did it to me too- but I rarely drink the rest of the year so that’s my excuse.
