Christmas Sparkle

A very Happy Christmas to all These Girls Turn Heads readers. (How long are we allowed to wish people a Happy Christmas once the big day is over?) Did you all have a lovely day? I spent mine at home with my lovely Mum and Santa spoilt us both rotten. I got a new SLR Canon Camera which I cannot wait to start using, a flat screen TV, some Mulberry gloves, the Grace Coddington autobiography and lots of bits and pieces including some lovely dresses from ASOS. I certainly must have been a good girl this year!

I thought I'd share my Christmas Eve outfit with you all. I can't resist a bit of sparkle as you know and every year my friends and I gather together for lots of wine before heading to our local pub. It's been a tradition for the past 8 years and is a chance for us all to get dressed up and see in Christmas Day together. The sequin dress I wore was from ASOS Curve, a little steep at £150 but definitely one of the nicest dresses I own. With a dipped ribbon tie back and sheer beaded front it was just the right amount of sparkle to see in Christmas Day. Sorry for the quality of the photos - my Mum took these quickly before I left and she was already on the champagne!

Dress: ASOS
Pointed metallic shoes: Topshop
Necklace: c/o Accessorize
Rings: ASOS

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year. I am off to Lisbon, Portugal on Friday to see in 2013 with my 4 best friends. Apparently it's a lot warmer there than in the UK at the moment so I am pretty excited. I may even start packing now!

See you next year.

My Westfield Christmas Wish List

Westfield London - The mecca of London shoppers recently got in touch to ask me to put together my Christmas wishlist. With every major high street brand under one roof it was going to be a tough job (I know, shopping with a £100 gift card. Someone's got to it!) deciding on what to put on my wish list. This year I haven't asked for anything. Ok, a tiny lie. The only thing I mentioned to my family was the Grace Coddington autobiography which I am dying to read. Now I'm starting to see some pieces I like but Santa aka Mum has told me "it's too late. You're all done". Oh, okay then. Thankfully the wonderful team at Westfield have solved my problems.

Westfield is literally on my door step and houses 388 shops! It's probably worth mentioning that tonight and tomorrow they are opening their doors until MIDNIGHT for those of us who like to leave our Christmas shopping until the last minute (like myself). On Saturday opening hours are until 11pm so sharpen those elbows and be ready to get your shop-on. I for one will definitely be there Saturday afternoon picking up my last remaining Christmas presents for my Secret Santa, my Dad and Stepdad. 

Below is my Christmas list all of which is available at Westfield London and with a Westfield gift card I'm free to roam around and choose some of my pieces below. The gift card is ideal if you're stuck for present ideas, as it allows your loved ones the freedom to shop for something they really want.

The gift cards are available in any value, in a range of designs (including seasonal sleeves for Christmas) and are redeemable against all purchases, including sale goods at participating Westfield stores.*
