It’s only 5 days until December! Which means it’s very almost Christmas time! I will very soon be putting up our Christmas tree and decorating it with all our baubles and snowflakes.

DotComGiftShop sell a range of wonderful products and gifts, most of them with a shabby chic or retro theme. It’s a gorgeous online store and their prices are so reasonable. Their products would make perfect Christmas presents, stocking fillers, or secret gifts for yourself…

I mentioned a week or two ago about how I was thrilled to have won a £100 voucher to spend at Dunelm Mill! You may think.. ‘that’s so uncool, Dunelm is a granny shop’. Well let me inform you, it’s not! It’s super stylish, and my local store has actually just been refurbished and is now two floors of pretty homely products!
