It’s finally here! Without a doubt my favourite month of the year! Yes the weather’s crappy and it gets dark at like 3 in the afternoon and I have to get up five minutes earlier just to de-ice my car every morning BUT, it’s Christmaaaaaaaas! I’ve always been a bit of a Christmas fanatic, although I think I’ve managed to rein it in a bit this year. I only started listening to Christmas songs in mid-November, and I’m only now starting to put up the…Continue Reading “Hey December”

Christmas is so so so close now! I can’t believe that when I’m next doing my weekly favourites it will be after Christmas! Despite not being able to get into the Christmas spirit quite as much this year, I have of course enjoyed doing anything Christmas related, so here’s a rather festive themed favourites for you! 1. Christmas Jumpers 🙂 Yesterday we had Christmas Jumper Day at work, which was for charity. I wore this jumper from last year covered in christmas puddings (cuuuute!), and…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 19th December 2015”

I’ve had such a Christmassy few days! It’s finally getting close enough that I can start getting excited, and I’m able to admit that I am, indeed, listening to Christmas songs in the car, in my room, and on Spotify while I’m working.. :’) Roll on this week’s favourites! 1. Christmas trees In the last week I’ve put up 3 proper Christmas trees, decorated 2 of those, and done my own little Christmas tree in my room. It’s been a decorating kind of week. I wouldn’t…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 12th December 2015”

This is yet another belated post. I seem to be good at these, I just don’t ever seem to have the time when something has just happened! This time I’m harking back to a couple of weeks ago, when Matt and I popped into Oxford for the day. It was the day after they had switched the Christmas lights on, so everything was sparkly and Christmassy, and they even had a mini Christmas market set up for the weekend. I mainly wanted to go into…Continue Reading “Oxford in Lights”

So it’s finally December! Things are starting to get Christmassy around here. I’ve got my advent calendars, both Dairy Milk and my Yankee Candle one. On Friday I helped put the decorations up at work, so there was tinsel EVERYWHERE. Christmas songs are on my playlist pretty much non-stop. Even the TV guides are starting to feature what’s on over the Christmas period. I’ve managed to get almost all my Christmas shopping done today, and the tree’s going up tomorrow. Despite all of this, not…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 5th December 2015”

This is a bit of a belated post, but it’s something I did want to write about. Last weekend, Matt and I went away on the Friday night for our anniversary, to a little hotel near Broadway, which isn’t that far away from where I live in the Cotswolds. It’s a cute little town, with some great cafes and pubs, and LOTS of super cute gift shops. Just my kind of place! We set off early in the afternoon, and the weather was actually okay when…Continue Reading “A Classic Cotswolds Escape”

Good evening! I’ve had an excellent Saturday so far, I hope all of our weekends are going well. I’ve just come back from shopping in Oxford, where it was all super Christmassy and festive! On the downside, it was bloody freezing, so I was cold outside and overheating in every shop because of all the layers I was wearing. Not ideal, but we had a lovely lunch, I met up for coffee with an old friend, and I *may* have picked up a little something…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 21st November 2015”

Okay, so this post is majorly late! But I love reading these so I thought I’d do a quick one now. My Youtube video on the same subject is at the end of the post, so give that a watch if you’d prefer! The first thing I got was a brand new camera, a Fujifilm S8650 (I think). This was from my parents and it’s such a cool looking camera! I got it in white, which my mum thought was bizarre, but I think it…Continue Reading “What I Got For Christmas!”

Just a quick little post today, as I’ve been mega busy wrapping presents and cooking the meat for Christmas and Boxing Day! I’ve just painted my nails all ready for Christmas, and they don’t look all that bad!   I’ve used an Orly polish, in the colour Luxe, and the Rimmel Glitterbomb shown in the picture, in Midnight Mistletoe. I love them! I hope you guys have all had good Christmas Eve eves (yes, that is a thing!), and check back tomorrow for my last Blogmas…Continue Reading “Christmas Nails! (Blogmas Day 23)”

Around Christmas, and really throughout winter generally, I love to wear shimmery make up, especially on the eyes. I’ve put together a bit of a collection of my favourite eyeshadows and eyeliners which I like to wear during the festive period, to add that little bit of sparkle to my make up!   Eyeshadows I love cream eyeshadows, and I know I’ve raved before about the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr shadows. The darker, burgundy-like colour is Metallic Pomegranate, which I do find a bit dark…Continue Reading “Festive Make Up: Shimmers and Sparkle (Blogmas Day 22)”
