Presents, Food and Games - Christmas 2018!

Christmas is finally here! Watch me celebrate Christmas Day and enjoy a fancy Boxing Day meal!
Click here for the vlog or see below.  If you watched my Christmas Eve vlog, you probably saw me a little emotional and it was a hard day. Having your family open Christmas presents without you is tough! I know Christmas isn't actually about presents but it's a huge part of the memories. Anyway, I woke up excited to open presents but mum said she would open them with me, but on her schedule, so instead I got dressed and ready first. 
I chose an older dress that I actually bought for my cousin's birthday, a few years ago now. I usually curl my hair for Christmas but instead, I thought I would french plait it for a change and went for more natural looking curls. I also treated myself to a new LipSense colour - somewhat unplanned - to match my dress, in Sheer Berry.  It wasn't too long once I was ready that we could open presents. Mum and Jess had even saved their presents from…

Outside there is a red carpet with security, and then you walk up a gold staircase before meeting bag check in. The scan each item, text you the labelled numbers and take a picture of you so you can easily get them back at the end of the show. It's so clever and very simple. 
As you walk around to the show entrance, there is a bar and a ticket checker and then one of the staff members takes you to your seat. You really are made to feel very special.
