Part One: Good Tidings for Christmas

The past week has been quite hectic for me! At least to the point of pulling me away from my beloved lappie. We started our Christmas celebrations with a class party on Christmas Eve as proposed by Mr. Goh. We did a little potluck and I brought my specialty -- pasta with white cream sauce. It's just too bad that half of the class didn't participate and missed out on the yummy food. The tutorial was as usual but we were barely paying attention since the tutor was wearing a Santa hat and the cheese tarts that he brought were distracting us. Although the party only lasted for an hour and a half, we managed to finish up all the food, get some decent pictures and score some *coughs*... Oh! and my packages from sprees as well as my prize from Paris' giveaway arrived!

For my Christmas Eve look, I curled my hair and went for a green and purple look with golden shimmers. The golden shimmers are from my Kate Gel Liner in GD-1, used as a base before applying eyeshadow over it. It's a pretty cool trick to add subtle shimmers to your look so do try it if you have this liner! If you don't have it, I highly recommend it. They have it in silver as well which works the same.
