Photo Diary: New Years Eve Celebrations 2012

Food and fun on New Years Eve
I saw 2012 out in a Michelin Star restaurant in Wales, with my fiancé, friends and family.
It was lovely to have a small getaway to the countryside, somewhere I always feel I can relax.
I wore my Pussycat London dress and accessorised with a Tatty Devine necklace, rings from Whistles, Swarovski and Beaverbrooks, as well as a 1930s vintage bag from India – a Christmas present from the fiancé’s family.
I also matched my nails to my accessories with some red polish and glitter.
Of course being a foodie meant that I was also rather excited to spend my NYE in an amazing restaurant.
We have been several times to the French restaurant, and the food never disappoints. 

Our menu on New Years Eve consisted of 7 courses:
Kir Royale & Canapés
Soufflé Suisse with apple & almond salad
Seared scallop with crab cannelloni, sauce vierge & Jerusalem artichoke puree
Fillet of Celtic Pride beef wellington, pomme fondant, celeriac puree & red win jus
Selection of desserts
Selection of French & Welsh cheeses
Coffee & Petit fours

We finished around 11:50pm, when we then left to head outside to the town square.
I said hello to 2013 with over a hundred people, holding hands in a circle.
Of course I also had a quick kiss with the fiancé too.
How did you spend your New Years Eve?

OOTD: Lovely Lace

(Dress: Pussycat London*, Shoes: H&M, Belt: Primark)

I love to dress up around Christmas time, and I usually end up buying a couple of new dresses just to do it.
So when new brand Pussycat London offered to send me one of their pieces I had to choose a dress just for that.
If you’re a long time reader of my blog, then you will know by now that I love items that can be dressed-up or down.
That’s why it was pretty much love at first sight when I saw this lace dress on their website.
It may just look like any other dress in the images on their site, but I knew I could get to work on it.
I added a thin red belt to compliment the navy and also a subtle yet noticeable silver necklace.
The leaf necklace itself says Christmas to me, but with the navy and red I think it really feels seasonal.
Simple patent heels give it that little bit of extra class, making it a bit more dress-y, at least I think so.
This is definitely a contender for my Christmas day dress!
How do you think I could style it to make it even more Christmas-y?
