Twas The Night Before Christmas

Hello Little Ones,
A little while ago I wrote this guest post for Beth over on Beauty in Beta.
And I'm so proud of it that I couldn't keep it hidden from you all!
So here is my Christmas Day Lookbook
This will include PJs, dresses and casual looks;
basically everything you could need to look so good for Santa on Christmas day.

Now whilst you are all reading this I would suggest putting on some Christmas tunes,
my personal favourite is "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by Michael Buble,
as well as tucking into a mince pie and a hot chocolate.
Now are we all sitting comfortably...
well lets begin.
It was the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, just the sound of a Lush bath.

Father Christmas Bath Bomb - Lush - £3.25
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St Nicolas would soon be there.

The children were nestled all snug in there beds,
whilst wearing their favourite pjs covered in Santa heads.

Santa Leggings - Primark - £10
Slipper Socks - Primark - £3
And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my onesie,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap.

Onesie - Primark - £10

When out on the lawn there a rose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
 Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and put on my coat and hat.

Shirt - Primark - £12
Jumper - Primark - £8
Coat - Matalan - £40
Jeans - Topshop - £25
Boots - New Look - £15
Hat - Primark - £10

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave the lustre of mid-day objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick.
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
I pulled on my jumper as his coursers came,
And he whistled and shouted, and called them by name.

Jumper - Primark - £12
Dress - Primark - £10
"Now Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the Wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

Reindeer Socks - Topshop - £3
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With a sleigh full of beauty products, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around (in my little black dress)
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

Sequin Dress - Love at Topshop - £25
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of beauty goodies he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was white as snow.
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowful of jelly.

He was chubby and plum, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, dressed in tartan myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

Coat - Matalan - £40
Dress - Primark - £15
Tights - Primark - £3.50
Shoes - Primark - £6
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

Wrapping Paper - Paperchase -£3.50 - £4
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night"

Until next time...
