I know the picture quality is a bit rubbish, but the battery of my camera has run out and I had to take the pictures with my BlackBerry. I have curled my hair with my new haircurler from Remington (did it really quickly whilst Astrid was asleep). The dress is from ASOS and the ring is the mini nirvana by Swarovski, nails Chanel.

We went to Kent and to my sister in law to celebrate Christmas like we do almost every year. I wore vintage and Miu Miu.
This is our tree :-)
Husband cooked the turkey before we left and we took it with us to have with the family :-)
The other Christmas tree in Kent
Before dinner and the opening of the presents, there was some hanging to do and
hair to make "pretty" ;-) Didn't hurt one bit :-p
Champagne to had
Posing for pictures :-)
The wine of the evening
Games to be played...
After dinner and before the opening of the presents, the tradition is to dance around the tree :-)
After the presents, which took around 2 hours to open, there was dessert, cheese tray and dessert wine to indulge in
On Christmas day we had left over brunch, more posing, coffee and drove mother in law home
The view from mother in laws flat ;-)
Finally came home at three pm on Christmas day. Happy but very tired
Yesterday was spent at home, except for an hour in the evening when we went to Westfields in Stratford to pick up cupcakes and have dinner at GBK
These cupcakes are good, but not fabulous. They are VERY sweet! Hummingbird Bakery's cupcakes are tonnes better...
Our Chrismas was good, but I think my expectations were a bit too high and got a little disappointed when we didn't do everything I was hoping we would do, so there has been some arguing as well. It is evry easy to run a blog and make ones life look perfect (just wanted to show that we have a perfectly normal life and argue just like everyone else) ;-)
How was your Christmas?

Christmas last year was all about me and my extravagant presents. There was no Astrid and no babies to think of. This year is completely different, no overpriced shoes under the tree, there is nothing I want this year. I am happier than I have ever been, very content and that is why I think I'll be fine not shopping for 6 months. I only buy things for the sake of shopping, like a hoarder, I buy things and don't have the time to wear it. Now I appreciate time with my Husband and baby and going for a walk. So instead of going to Stratford Westfield, I will go to Epping Forrest for a walk in the nature. I don't think I have changed much since giving birth to Astrid, I have evolved, become more sensitive and more protective. This is not to say I won't drool over a fabulous pair of heels or a gorgeous looking dress when Vogue arrives in the post :-)
Last year Husband, who hates shopping, went to Selfridges and got me a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and Tiffany earrings and the books I got has made just as happy. I thought when Ididn't have the Louboutins, that having them would make me overcome with joy and they did for a second or two. Sitting looking at Astrid makes me very content and happier than putting the Louboutins on. Isn't it funny how we expect materialistic thing to make us happy and its the simple, back to basic thing that really does it :-)
Hope you all have had a fantastic Christmas with lots of presents (cos they still give us joy) love and food...

Spending today chilling with the family. We are going for a walk later and then going to Waitrose to buy dinner...
Below is a picture of all of my fashion books, most them I got this Christmas from Husband. The Chanel was a birthday present a few years ago and the Valentino book was a gift from Husband when we went to Bath and its fashio museum earlier this year...

A picture frame with pictures of two of my godchildren in it from Karen
A Girls Aloud cd from my 6 year old niece hat she picked all by herslef, which I thought was very sweet :-)

A picture of my late grandfather from my dad, I love this picture as this is how I would like to remember my grandfather. He was a carpenter and a builder and that is exactly what he looks like here
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. This was Astrids first Christmas and I think it might have been a little too much for her, but she was very chilled and didn't complain once (just found it a little bit hard to fall asleep last night)

Some of my Christmas ...
