Things I loved in December

Apologies for the very late post it's been a busy few weeks here! Dan's been working non stop, not only at M&S but his photography is really starting to take off. He's had lots of interest for weddings this year and has been approached by a wedding dress company to take photos of their new dresses. I'm a very proud girlfriend at the moment, and it's so nice to see him doing something he loves to do. If you fancy popping over to see his work then follow this link. He's currently got a fantastic offer going on so check that out whilst you're there!!

The house is gathering pace, it's so hard to believe that in less than 5 months time we could be sat in our very own home. I'm trying not to get to excited as anything could go wrong but I do let out the odd girly squeal when I think about it!

Now onto the point of this post!!

This year I was completely spoilt rotten by Dan for Christmas. We decided to set a £50 budget as we have a bit of saving to do for the new house. We both went slightly over budget by the odd pound or two but it was so worth it. I was so taken back with the coffee machine that Dan brought me, it was so thoughtful and just what I wanted. I think that's what makes being on a budget so special, it really makes you think about the things you are buying.

If you follow me on instagram you will have seen the amazing New Years Eve invite that I received from our neighbours. They threw an incredible party, with a DJ, barman there to create any cocktails we wished and food to die for!  I decided to crack out the little black dress this year and team it up with these shoes from Dorothy Perkins that are COVERED in glitter. When I saw them they screamed New Years Eve to me.

As there are 5 people and one dog living under one roof Dan and I try our best to get out as much to spend a bit of time together. Back at the start of December we headed to Festival Place in Basingstoke to do a bit of Christmas shopping, whilst we were there we decided to grab a bite to eat at GBK. We had been to GBK a few months before and I had one of there salads, which was lovely, but having to sit opposit Dan who had chips, onion rings, a HUGE burger and milkshake nearly killed me. So to my delight I noticed that they did a 'Bunless' option which replaces the bun with mixed leaves and homemade coleslaw. I may have added a portion of fries but it was a treat!!

Now I'm technically not supposed to be buying stuff for the house, which I haven't, but I wanted to get a little something to keep the excitement going. I love having old photos up and these three photos are three of my favourite photos ever. The one on the left is me and the very curly haired Lauren also known as my sister, also known as The Beauty Habit. The second photo is of me and my beautiful Auntie Kathy who if you have read my blog was my inspiration to start Aimee Dot, in fact a little secret to share, Aimee Dot was what Auntie Kathy and the rest of my family used to call me. I'm not sure where it came from, I think it was because I was quite a small baby but either way it stuck! The third photo is of me and my Grandad Tom, I love this photo. You can't see from the photo here but we both have the biggest smiles on our faces! All three of these will be taking pride of place in our new house.

If you saw my Christmas Wish List post you will have seen these boots on there. I wasn't going to buy these but the only pair of shoes I seem to have for work that are casual are my black pumps and I'm getting to the point where I'm going to wear a hole in them! They are so comfy and just what I needed.

Sorry again for the late post, I plan on getting back into the swing of things ASAP. I've got lots of new posts planned including a few posts for my birthday on Sunday. I can't believe I'm going to be 25.....even though I tell people I'm going to be 21 again.
