.Merry Christmas.

Hello everyone!

Merry Christmas for a couple of days ago. I hope you all had a lovely day and that Santa was good to you. I am a diehard Christmas fan, and the countdown to it normally starts in about March, much to the annoyance of friends and family who don't need "It's __ months until Christmas!!!" on every 25th of every month...

As all of our relatives live up in sunny Scotland, it's always just the five of us at home all day on Christmas. I wouldn't have it any other way, as I see Christmas as a holiday to appreciate the people you have around you, and a very family orientated one. I always feel very lucky around this time of the year, as I am more than aware that there are people out there that see Christmas as just another day of the year for one reason or another. My boyfriend Tom normally comes over in the evening and we all sit around eating, drinking, being merry and watching all the soaps and shows that are on the TV - Can I just take this moment to express how AMAZING Downton was?! YAY for Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley - at last!

This post isn't a Christmas haul post, it's more just a 'Christmas themed' post with pictures that scream Christmas to me, pictures of my day and a few gifts I received. I was very lucky on Christmas morning, but don't want to go posting loads of pictures people probably won't be very interested in! If you like these sort of posts, check out the lovely Laura's Christmas blog post here, and if you've done one yourself, please link them in the comments as I adore these sort of posts.

How long have you all got off for the holidays? I'm not back to the School of Make Up until January, so i'm spending my days being lazy and seeing friends and spending time with my loved ones. Today I haven't even got out of my PJs which is incredibly lazy! I'm also super excited as my MUA idol Lisa Eldridge replied to one of my tweets about my shoots from a couple of weeks ago - I had a little fan girl moment. (@katelambie if you would like to follow me.)

Hope you all have a lovely holiday, whatever you are up to...
