#secretstylist - Blogger Secret Santa and Come Dine With Me!

A little while ago, the lovely guys at House of Fraser emailed me to see if I'd be part of a blogger secret santa. Being a huge lover of this type of swap, I immediately agreed. A few weeks later, I was posted some lovely necklaces - Lonna & Lilly Set of Three blue necklaces.

I wore them out at the weekend for another round of Come Dine With Me with my friends. The WhatsApp discussion before dinner was around wearing our pyjamas to dinner - I think a lot of us were feeling tired in the pre-christmas rush!

I wore: Pyjama top from Accessorize, leatherette leggings from Long Tall Sally, cranberry suede heels from tReds (which are down to £4.99 at the moment in almost all sizes and are the MOST comfortable heels I've ever owned!), Erika Knight "Rib Wrap Cardigan" which I finished knitting that afternoon, and the necklaces! 

I teamed it with my favourite makeup look for winter - MAC Face and Body Foundation and MAC powder on top, MAC Pro Longwear concealer on spots, and Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer around eyes.   Maybelline liquid eyeliner in Matte finish, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara, MAC casual colour blush in keep it loose and MAC lipstick in Sin 

The necklaces were lovely, I loved the layering look, although I had to get lots of help from Sam to get them to line up perfectly! It would have been easier if they were one clasp at the back for me! I loved them though and the girls said they were really dainty and cute. They were a great colour for me, and I love gold over silver so are great for my wardrobe! Thank you very much to my secret santa, they are very me!

Dinner was lovely as usual! We had a fancy feast of cheeseboard and beer tasting for starter, pies for main course with the most yum cauliflower cheese, and sticky toffee pudding for pudding (from this Jamie Oliver recipe which was just DELICIOUS! It was lovely and casual, with everyone bringing chairs, drinks and lots of gossup!

Next Come Dine with Me is supposed to be me so if you have any great ideas please let me know! I need recipes which can be cooked in a tiny kitchen, hopefully in advance!
