#OOTD // Work Party Woo!

So on Saturday we had the regional Christmas party at work, which is basically a big bash all the managers from our local stores go to. AKA best night ever, as I get to see people from my old stores. Woo!

We had a meal to start with. Vegetable soup was the starter. The main was chicken for the meat eaters and I had the vegetarian dish, which was a puff pastry in some form of basil, tomato and olive filling. Much better better looking than the standard chicken. It kind of tasted like pizza! Veggie win!

Dessert was profiteroles. I never eat dessert so gave it away.

As always, there was free wine on the table, a quiz for us to win more wine, a raffle I didn’t win and a lot of dancing.

It was lovely to catch up with my old workmates. After much wine, I switched to lemonade. But then my old manager bought me a jager bomb.  I blame him for the hangover I had when I woke up.

I was determined not to get one and took many precautions. I even had a sports drink by my bed to drink before I went to sleep and had loads of water, but I still woke up at 7am feeling horrible.

I had to check out of the hotel at 11am, the drive home was not fun! I left at 10am and then slept a couple of hours. Sunday was basically a massive waste of time as I had a headache the whole day.

I’m never drinking again. Seriously. Alcohol ruins me!

On another point, I’ve gone from never staying in a hotel on my own before, to staying in 3 hotels on my own in a few months. I feel like a proper adult.

Help. Aging.





  1. You look gorgeous, what a pretty dress!! <3

  2. Um… sorry. I have to take a moment to appreciate your wall!! (Then I’ll gush about your stunning dress!)
    I love the cats and the birds!!! How cute it that!?!? Love it Corinne! Really really love it. I’m moving into a new place (my own that I can actually paint and decorate!!) at the end of Feb and this is such a cute ideas for the walls!!!

    Right… now the dress. Hello! You look amazing in it and it really is stunning!

    Haha alcohol ruins me too – that’s why I have stopped it! Yip!….. lets see how long that lasts!

  3. It was a lovely little number that you wore! I love the cute shoes too! Sounds like it was a fun night, even though the morning after wasn’t quite as pleasant!

  4. Lovely dress! Exactly the style I go for. I quite like staying in hotels alone -bed to myself and can just chill out. I used to hate going places alone but the more I did it the less bothered I have become.

  6. That dress is so pretty! I was going to ask why you’re having your Christmas party in January but then I remembered I once had one in May #fail. I’m pretty disappointed that you gave your dessert away though! x

  7. Corinne you are looking phenomenal! Your dress is fabulous, it’s so flattering, and your shoes are so cute 🙂

  8. Jager is a fast track to a hangover for me, evil drink! You looked stunning, I love that dress, and the vegetarian option sounds lovely.

  9. I’ve never stayed at a hotel on my own before, but I can imagine it must be quite fun (so long as you feel safe)! On a more important note.. you look so beautiful, Corinne! This dress is really very pretty, the copper sequin detailing is gorgeous!!

  10. LOVE that dress, I came so close to buying it, really wishing I had now!

    I’ve never stayed in a hotel by myself before but part of me wants to try it, I’d feel all business like, I could even carry a little briefcase and look all suave and …yeah, ok, so I couldn’t pull it off, but if there was a spa I’d be on it like shellac!

  11. Ugh wine hangovers are the worst! I’ve been trying to cut down drinking lately so I don’t waste my whole weekend with a hangover, but it’s hard because going out is so much fun! Love your dress 🙂

  12. i don’t remember if i already said this on instagram (probably forgot), but i love your dress so much! so beautiful. i actually do sometimes think about giving up alcohol myself, but as i’m not really that much of a big drinker anyway and i don’t get hangovers (yet?), i’m still enjoying a cheeky drink every now and then. but i do think it’s a good decision:-) and what, you never eat dessert?! xx

  13. Your dress is stunning so beautiful. I hope that you had a lovely time. Christmas outings with work colleagues always are fun Lucy x
