194 weeks and 6 days {HomeSense Christmas party}

Last week I met up with one of my blogging besties, Sarah, for a night away in Birmingham and the HomeSense Christmas party.

I’ve barely been at home over the last few weeks — there have been press days and workshops — and I feel as though I’m thoroughly behind on everything.

That said, it was really lovely to get away, despite the fact that Sarah and I had a bit of a nightmare with our hotel booking.

It could have been utterly disastrous, if it weren’t for the lovely staff there. I’m not going to dwell too much on it — other than to say I shan’t be booking anything Last Minute again.

The party more than made up for the challenging day that preceded it though.

It was held at a fabulous venue called the Lost & Found, in the enticingly named ‘Bar Behind The Bookcase’.

Such a cool place; a little gem with a fabulously eclectic decor, that really showed the HomeSense Christmas decorations off to the best advantage.

Life through my lens — this is what I was looking at in the last photo, oddly enough!

It was so lovely to hang out with some lovely like-minded people. Really nice to finally meet up with Home Etc regulars Lins {Boo and Maddie} and Jane {Maflingo} and also the lovely Amanda {Ana Mum Diary}.  Needless to say, after being treated to such a festive feast for the eyes I’m now feeling very Christmassy indeed. I’m so looking forward to dragging our decorations out of hiding this weekend!

It’s well documented that I’m not a huge fan of the colder months but I really LOVE Christmas. Any excuse to throw glitter and sparkle at every available surface is welcomed by me.

Pop along to HomeSense for even more festive frippery; whether your style is minimalist, Scandi, rustic or — like mine — a little bit of everything (definitely more is more at Christmas), they’ve got all you need to make your Christmas home merry and bright.

Thanks so much to HIBS100 and HomeSense for organising such a smashing do. We had a (glitter)ball. This is a collaborative post but all thoughts, words and images — as ever — are entirely my own.
