Monthly roundup #1

I love December, I think like most people it's my favourite month of the year. Not just for Christmas Day but for everything leading up to and after it! 

I've eaten a lot of yummy food this month and i'm really starting to see the results of it. So I guess I will have to start going to the gym in January (that's what they all say) but I'm really hoping I stick to it. Earlier this month I went to a great event called 'Night Tales' near Old Street Station which you can find out more in the post I did here. But it was a great way to start December, they cover the place in fairy lights and have some great twists on the classic mulled wine as well as plenty of stools of incredible food which isn't to be missed. 

I also had a nice catch up with the girls, we don't always get to meet up very often as me and my other friend work in London full time and the other two are outside London (one studying in Nottingham and the other working in Cambridge). So when we do get to see each other as a group its almost always over some yummy grub and we can spend hours chatting.

Another highlight to this month is obviously all the work Christmas events, after working hard all year its one of the things I really look forward to. We had our team Christmas lunch at the Red Dog Saloon which was amazing! (You can find my post about it here) Obviously we all ate way too much but it was worth it. Then we got back to the office to give out the secret santa which I got a beauty asos necklace and the Christmas raffle where I won a cute little hamper bag of jams/mustard/chocolate. And it doesn't stop there! Then we had a Christmas feast catered in the office and some delicious cocktails before moving onto a venue the company had booked with a photobooth (I took soooo many prints it's ridiculous) so it was a really jam packed day but one to remember!

I also did some Christmasy things myself! Me and Alex had a little mooch around Winter Wonderland (you can find the post here) drunk some mulled wine, played some games and went on some rides and he even won me a giant minion! There was a great band playing there as well which was called Disco Flames I think? If you are looking to hire a really upbeat and fun band definitely look into them! 

Apart from all of that we had a chilled Christmas at home with a lot of drink and food, the way it should be (you can find the post here). The only problem was I was in agony from my wisdom tooth so I could hardly eat anything and once I started my antibiotics I couldn't drink either! But I'm feel much better now so I can have all the Christmas leftovers which is just as good. 

Hope you all had a lovely December too, I'd love to know what you all got up to!
