A Very #BlogClub Christmas !

I went to my first Bristol Blog Club meet-up, run by Bonjour Blogger, back in March and meeting and getting to know the blog club ladies and of course reading their fab blogs has definitely been a highlight of my 2014. Last Wednesday Blog Club had a Christmas mixer at Betties and Baldwins hair salon. Generally we focus on a particular blog related topic (and cake) but this event was more about hanging out, drinking Presecco, eating mince pies and feeling festive! There was a raffle with some excellent prizes from The Body Shop and Bristol Hippodrome amongst others,  silly fun with cracker toys, a considerable amount of chat about Zoella, dozens of photos taken, Cadi from Betties and Baldwins was hand all evening providing suitably seasonal mini-manicures and we all went home with a goody bag of Lush products. So all in all a pretty good night!

'Betties and Baldwins' happens to be where I get my hair done anyway and I highly recommend them. With a name taken from a Clueless reference they basically already win at everything, but also the salon is run by lovely people who are super skilled with their scissors, the place looks amazing and they have the best playlist of mid-2000s RnB a girl could wish to listen to while getting her hair did! Check out their work on their website here.

Check out the links for the bloggers who joined in with the evening's festivities below and add them to your reading lists post haste! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Blog Clubbers and look forward to seeing you in 2015! xx

Playlist : Winter Winds

I'm a big fan of Christmas music, not necessarily the cheese they pipe out in shops (although there's a  time and a place for a bit of Mariah!) but with Spotify at my finger tips the last few Christmases have been soundtracked by all manner of festive tunes from different genres and eras - but there's plenty of time for that.

This is a playlist of seasonal songs that aren't quite Chrismassy but make me feel suitably festive all the same, perfect songs for cosying up with a glass of something mulled on a cold night. So if you're not quite ready for Christmas tunes just yet then hopefully this wintery playlist will see you through until you're ready to break out the Bing!

Are there any songs or albums that you love for this time of year that aren't your typical Christmas tunes?
