Since getting home on Thursday I've been freezing among good company. Lots of catching up to do being done over food and drink, breathing out ice and watching it glitter in the wintry sun. Tomorrow I'm meeting up with Jazzy (you should go and enter her giveaway!) for more of the aforementioned food and drink, then I'm off to see The Waxwork (again. jeeze.) for a setlist which features Peanut Butter Wolf (who apparently is a real person).

This is what I received from family and friends (and myself!) for my birthday. This is by no means a "look what I've got and you haven't" kind of post, more of an "I'm currently sitting under a duvet in my PJs after getting in at 7 and you really don't want to see my face" one.

Cath Kidston weekend bag from my brother. Coco Chanel edp, lipstick, and mirror from my mum. Blue bead necklace from Beth. Alice in Wonderland necklace from Amy. Aubin and Wills stripe tee from myself(!). Watch chain from Sabby.

It's so odd to leave my lectures and wish people a Merry Christmas, is it just me who finds the festive season has crept up on them? Regardless, with my final tut on "Jude the Obscure" finished, I can now say I'm halfway through my degree. Woah. To celebrate the end of term I went with some of my course mates to the Raz (read this to whet your appetite). Thankfully you can't see it in these photos, but it's quite obvious I haven't had time to clean my shoes since. (Or sleep either, can you see those bags?! Damn you dubstep boy on the floor above, must you really listen to it till six every morning??)

I'm getting the train home in about two hours, so by my side there is a suitcase of quarter gifts, quarter clothes, and half books (essay and exams to treat myself when I come back in January - hooray!).

I had the most wonderful weekend with two of my favourite people. When not learning how to do the Paper Planes dance in Sabby's flat in Belsize Park, we went to the Degas exhibition at the Royal Academy, ate hummus for four meals in a row (thank you to hummus bros for the free birthday malabi in the last photo!), disputed the legitimacy of an "all night" DJ at Proud Camden on the 24, and drank cocktails and champagne at Dirty Martini (who have the nicest staff, I truly recommend it).

I didn't intend to take outfit photos, but while Sabby was preparing for her moot and Charles was in Acton I wandered down to Hampstead and took advantage of the Heath's emptiness caused by the chilly December weather.
Birthday tomorrow!
