Listen up Mr. Claus: I have been a very good girl this year and am therefore expecting a stocking fit to bursting and a truck-load of pressies under my evergreen. Don't fob me off with any of this 'Credit Crunch Christmas' nonsense alright?
We'll work through my gifting demands in groups, let's start with beauty bits. ASOS.com have some amazing buys that won't mean breaking the bank (or in your case, having to make any elves redundant), here are my favourites from their Winter collection:
Forget Frosty the Snowman - it's all about Benefit's Frosty the white shimmering eye pencil. Line your eyes with it and highlight your brow and cupid's bow to look wide-eyed and bushy tailed post party!
Bourjois' limited edition eyeshadows are available exclusively at ASOS.com. Pretty packaging, gorgeous shimmering colours. This rich aubergine shade is a great alternative to the usual black smoky eye.
Okay, perhaps this is more of an 'under the tree' pressie but GHDs are every girl's essential. Some of the proceeds of these pink ones go to Breast Cancer UK and can therefore be bought entirely guilt-free.
Ooh I love Illamasqua! Previously only avaliable at Selfridges, this professional-style make-up can now be purchased online at ASOS too - this rich red shade looks amazing with black liner and tons of glossy lashes (they so some great false lashes for when mascara isn't enough).
Pretty, pretty packaging from a new perfume brand, Crazylibellule. I want it!!
Paul & Jo's foundation is dreamily light and the bottle is heavenly on any dressing table.

Sadie Frost and Jemima French have brought their special brand of ultra-feminine fashion to the streets of Soho. The new boutique is a vision in pink and showcases the design duo's popular threads to perfection. Framed pen and ink illustrations adorn the walls and the changing rooms are a fuchsia dream. The party was so packed with glitterati that it was hard to get a proper feeling for the new collection but I will certainly go back to check it out properly. Guests included JLS and James Brown (Kate Moss's famous hairdresser).

Moi in the changing room (I want my bedroom to look like this!)

More (good) pictures to follow - these were just quick snaps.
There were crowd fisticuffs, a guest appearance by the Mighty Boosh's lovable Noel Fielding and the kind of beats that make you more excited than a fat kid faced with an awe-inspiring mountain-load of cake. Long live the boys from Leicester - all together now, naaaa naaa naaaa, na na na na naaaaaaa!

Witches, goblins, naughty nurses and everything in between...and a dead Lady Gaga for good measure. Everyone clearly paid heed to Opal Nera's 'no costume, no entry' warning, then! There was face painting, there were dodgy diagnoses by dangerous doctors and lots and lots of black sambuca shots in various guises. A dark and scary night was enjoyed by all at the Vibe Bar (Brick Lane) venue. Mwah ha ha! The best part? I succeeded in getting home this year - with Northumberland bus shelter safely out of sight.
