My Christmas Day in Pictures 2015

Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves


Well I don't know about you but Christmas seemed to fly past really quickly this year! I'm a massive fan of the festive period and go into full on elf mode each December. I love everything from the house being all decorated, the pretty lights up everywhere, the delicious food and getting to see all of my family and friends. It was a fairly quite and relaxed Christmas Day this year, spent at home but I do kind of prefer it that way and we had a wonderful time! We very much felt the absence of my sister, Emily though who has been travelling in Australia for the last year and has now moved onto New Zealand. This was the first Christmas we haven't spent together our whole lives so it did feel strange! She had sent us all presents however which we opened over Skype on Christmas Eve (which was her Christmas morning). Along with some foodie bits from Oz she made my Mum and I a friendship bracelet each (pictured). I received some lovely and exciting Christmas gifts which I will do a separate post about very soon!

I thought I'd share with you my Christmas Day in pictures. From our decorations, to dinner, to what I wore...

H&M Christmas Jumpers: Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves
 
My choice of Christmas jumpers this year (both from H&M). I went for the cat one on Christmas Day and the bow one on Boxing Day.
 
Christmas Dinner: Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves
 
My delicious Christmas lunch: Turkey with all the trimmings! And then a choice of Christmas pudding or my Mum's homemade chocolate mousse for dessert - I always go for he chocolate mousse.
 
Christmas Bouquet of Flowers: Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves
 
I was given these beautiful festive bouquet of flowers from my friend. They really added to our Christmas decor and I love the gold leaves!
 
Christmas Makeup: Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves
 
Makeup: I went for gold on my eyes using a shadow palette by Mally Beauty and her volumising mascara. I added a pinky nude lipstick from Laura Geller called Rouge Audrey. I'm also wearing my own handmade Santa hat earrings: My Beaded Treasures on Etsy.

We went out for our traditional Christmas walk, not very far, just enough to feel like we'd walked off some of our lunch!

Christmas Day 2015 | Katie Kirk Loves
 
The princess of the household, making what I think is her blog debut! This is Mandy our 17 year old cat who has been been by my side since I was  9. She loves Christmas as she gets to play with all the ribbon and get in the boxes! We got her some catnip move from Molly's Mice which she loved and then spent the entire evening asleep in my empty Christmas sack! So she had a very enjoyable day.

The evening was spent cuddled up under blankets feeling happily over-fed and watching the festive TV on offer, including the Strictly Christmas Special, Call the midwife and of course the final episode of Downton Abbey! 
 
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day and have a happy and healthy 2016 to look forward to!
