The four of us first met up at Belgo in Covent Garden. It's a Belgian restaurant and I had mussels with chips! Yum yum :) I just love seafood ♥ If you go there and order before 6 o'clock, you get discounts on the food. After that we had dessert at Haagen Das in Leicester Square, where we exchanged gifts for Secret Santa!

Myself with Caroline at Haagen Das
We each bought a present worth about £15, and then drew lots to see who gets who's present. Imagine our surprise when in the first lots we picked, we each got our own names! It was really creepy. Like what are the chances?? The next time though, it was alright. And here's what I got from my friend, Laura!
MY FIRST EVER SHU UEMURA EYELASHES! They're so nice. They're half-cut ones, which are meant to be put at the outer ends of the lash line to make them look more 'flirty' I suppose. This type looks really great on almond shaped eyes, like mine! I can't wait to use these. I just hope I don't ruin these after the first use like my first MAC ones. They just look so fab - look at the black rhinestones! I'll never be able to afford these for myself since they're quite expensive, so I was so thrilled I got them as a present ♥♥
After cocktails and ice cream at Haagen Das, we went to Accessorize at Trocadero to check out some items, but none of them really caught my eye. They had fun playing with the hair accessories though. Then we went to Boots to check out the makeup and some Soap & Glory stuff since some of my friends haven't heard of the brand!
Here's my outfit - well with my coat on since the photo was taken outside. I finally get to show you a look with my bow tights! xx
I had a really great time tonight. It's great spending time with good friends ♥
Are there any upcoming events you're excited about? Hope you enjoyed reading this post! xx
