A Stress-Free Sunday

Hi guys! I'm in a bloggy mood today and have been brainstorming posts all day - there is lots I want to share with you! However today was a day of major relaxing as it's the Motel Christmas blogger event tomorrow and I am going to London bright and early! Considering the events don't start until the evening, I have to stay full of energy all day so I've been taking it easy today and pottering about at home. I feel full of adrenalin so won't be able to sleep any time soon!

I work up to an epic online supermarket shop delivery, which I tend to do on pay day usually (damn this five week month!) but I needed to stock up again. If I visit the supermarket myself, I can't carry much, so I buy loads of juice, tinned soups, sauces and other heavy things online; then top up over the month with fresh veggies and fruit.

My sister visited on Friday and I've been craving milkshake ever since (hangover cure?). Drinking pink things taste even better I swear!

I slapped on a hair mask and left it on all day before I showered as my locks are feeling a bit dull and dry of late. This one smells a bit herby and funky so I'll probably try another next, although it does make for smooth ends!

High stress levels mean a LOT of warm tea and some treats - it's all about the treats! I've packed up a whole picnic of food for tomorrow as you never have the chance to go off and eat when you are perfecting a party, so I am well prepared!

A routine to make me feel very organised and fresh is to clean all my makeup with antibacterial wipes and wash my brushes in baby shampoo! They make your makeup feel brand new and I know I will be transporting my brushes tomorrow so I made sure they are squeaky clean.   


I also have a delve through my makeup collection and pull out a few lost and forgotton items. I quite fancy a bit of glitter for tomorrow and maybe a red lip! This all depends on how long and where I have to get ready, which might end up being a couple of minutes!

This is the dress I am wearing! It's actually navy blue with a velvet bodice and hugh, umbrella tutu skirt. There is nowhere else I would be able to wear this dress and I think I will feel like the belle of the ball, which is a good thing when you are hosting a party! It's called the Tera Dress and will be on Motel Rocks soon.

Then I spent the afternoon planning for Monday and Tuesday and sorting the final party guest list. I cannot tell you just how much work goes into an event so fingers crossed everyone has a lovely time! There are so many presents!


I'm a bit on the fence with candles as I get used to the smell as soon as they are lit! It's nice to walk back into the room with a gorgeous scent though but I won't be spending loads on posh candles any time soon.

I'm going to blend up a super green smoothie in the morning with apple, courgette, spinach and banana, hoping it will be my mega energy boost! People think they must taste really peculiar but I love a random smoothie.

And now it is bedtime and I know I'll have trouble nodding off! I hope tomorrow goes so well - there should be lots of coverage on Twitter and Facebook, and hopefully everyone will love it! I'm looking forward to seeing some of my favourite blogger faces x
