Christmassy Shenanigans • oliviamayharker

Hey guys,

I'm so sorry it's been so long but I've been crazily busy these past few weeks and blogging (unfortunately) took a back seat.

Today I've got a 'day in the life' sort of post, because simply they're my favourite to read so I thought I'd have a go myself.
Tuesdays are my 'relaxing day', as I work weekends and have college throughout the week. But, on a Tuesday I have all morning free up until 2.05 precisely ( I still have to go to college boo) to do whatever I want. Me and my friend, Harris usually decide to go into town and browse the shops and we usually sit in Starbucks and watch the world go by. 
HOWEVER, it's that time of year again. The Christmas markets have arrived in Nottingham and me and Harris took our opportunity to go and have a look.

But before the markets opened we went for breakfast in Delilah, a cute deli near the centre of town.

I ordered a Roquefort grilled sandwich with red onion marmalade and pine nuts and a raspberry lemonade (yum) and Harris ordered Delilah brunch, which was toast, scrambled egg, and the tastiest looking sausage and a breakfast tea.

Then after browsing through some shops and realising I forgot my cameras memory card which resulted in me running to Jessops like a mad woman... we finally hit the Christmas markets. First, we admired the fudge, and promised the man we'd 'come back later' after nabbing a free sample, we never did go back...

You can't really see here but my outfit was casual, nobody can go wrong with a stripy t-shirt and black jeans... can they? I also rocked the sunglasses look because what better way to hide the bags under my eyes, although I did get a lot of 'what is that girl wearing sunglasses in December for?' looks.
 We then got waaaaaay to carried away with taking photos with the various snowman that were dotted around the market.
(On a side note, how cool does Harris look in the photo above?)

 And finally, I had to include this photo, because I just love it. I don't know why. I just do.

Let me know if there is any Christmas inspired things you like to do at this time of year in the comments.

Thanks for reading,
