I know it’s still a few weeks away yet, but after getting down all of our Christmas decorations from the attic we really got into the festive spirit! We decided to have a little pre-Christmas buffet for dinner (the best kind of dinner) after putting up the tree to try out some new tableware. Out came the tartan table runner, the snazzy new wine glasses, and all of the Christmas themed tableware. Along with festive dinnerware; pretty tea light candles are great for decorating a dinner table at Christmas time to give a fun festive atmosphere. Dinner Table Paper plates…

I was recently invited by Ocean to take part in a blogger project to pick some of my favourite Christmas home decorations for a total of up to £50. I’m actually quite impressed with how much £50 can get you when you shop in the right places!  I’ve wanted one of these naked little twig trees for ages and I was even considering making my own from branches found in the park! But this was much easier and more practical, and it has the added benefit that it has built in fairy lights! How cute! Can you believe it was…

It’s officially one month until Christmas! Yippee! Which means.. let the festive blog posts begin! I’m starting with a little gift guide designed to inspire you if you’re looking for gifts for a loved one that may be needing a bit of ‘me time’.

I didn’t actually ask for anything specific for Christmas so I’m extremely grateful that I ended up with some super cute presents from my family. We didn’t open up our Christmas presents until the afternoon once my little niece and nephew arrived. They were so excited and got spoiled with amazing pressies! My niece got an iPad mini so I got her a snazzy case for it, and I bought my nephew some toy kitchen appliances which he seemed to love! I got some lovely things too…     I got some really nice winter clothes; my parents got me…

I hope everyone has had an amazing couple of days with their friends and family for Christmas! Unfortunately I have to work this weekend (boo hoo) but then I’m off for 5 days from Thursday and am going to a private cottage we’ve rented near Stratford Upon Avon. Me and Liam are going to have our own mini Christmas day as he’s been working away, which means more roasts, cheese boards, and lots of wine. Also we will have our own hot tub and open fire which I’m super excited about.. yay! Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, even though…
