On Tuesday I found out that I had won tickets to see X Factor being recorded, thanks to TalkTalk. I was really rather excited. I have been a fan of the show for about five years, and this year is definitely one of my favourites so far. I called my very best friend, who lives not far from London, and it was a date! This was to be one of our first nights out together in about three years. Possibly more, so we were going to make the most of it! The problems I had with my hotel booking were sorted out on Friday afternoon, so I knew that we were going to stay in a hotel together, which meant we could see each other for longer.
I travelled down to London on Saturday lunchtime and made sure I got loads of university reading done on my way down. When I checked into the hotel, I settled down to do my nails. A luxury I get very little time for at home. I used Maybelline Colour Show Brocades, which is fabulously festive.
