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!

I think it looks much better than last years (although I’ve lost my…

It’s a bit like picking from a lucky dip; some pressies are great and some are simple pleasures, but unwrapping each one is enjoyable! If you’re still stuck for some stocking filler ideas or you need to give your boyfriend some last minute inspirations (no doubt this weekend the high street will be full of men in a panic!) then here are a few of my favourite ideas.  I love collecting…

I’ve gone a little bit over the top with buying Christmas decorations this year. I probably had enough already but I just cannot resist cute decorative bits! Our Christmas theme at home is red and white with nordic touches, and lots and lots of reindeer and stags! Here’s some of my favourite Christmas decorations I’ve purchased this year. My next blog post will feature my Christmas tree and everything in it’s place!  These two adorable little silver deer are so sweet…
