Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

Hey Beauty Buddies…

As much as I’ve enjoyed the technology free break for the last 48 hours I’ve actually missed chatting with you lovely lot – of course that hasn’t stopped me having thee most fantastic Christmas with family, it really has been amazing from start to finish. Having said that cooking for nine hungry tums is no easy feat… needless to say I survived without withering under pressure or fainting from the sight of the dishes thereafter. However here’s just a few snaps summing up the last few days which includes fueling up on a cheeky Costas during a girly day out shopping with Em’s, lots of pressies buliding up below the tree, our cuddly Santa with his hilariously skinny little legs & Emma opening her goodies on Chrismtas morning! 😀

On a slightly more personal note, I was treated to a few ahhhhmazing pressies too – in fact I’m literally bouncing with excitement to get trying them all out! I’m sure you’ll spot them on the blog pretty soon, so keep your eyes peeled for a few new beauty goodies over the next few weeks chums 😉

And…. for those of you wrapped up today enjoying a tasty turkey sandwich whilst eager to catch up on what’s been happening over the last week, then get yourself comfy for a quick recap of the festive shenanigans over the last few days. Enjoy!
