Christmas is coming! Here’s one of my first festive blog posts (I’ve already showed off my Christmas jumper!). Poundland is one of my favourite stores at this time of year as they get new deliveries of all kinds of goodies and this year they have an amazing range of Christmas bits. Not the usual cheap and tacky bits, they have some actually nice things in! Check out these Christmas pretties… I couldn’t resist this cute little star shaped ceramic dish. I…

var noskimlinks = ‘true’; I love getting into the festive spirit, and admittedly I’ve started pretty early this year. I spent most of my weekend accidentally buying lots of Christmas decorations (I can never resist a bargain!) and I’ve really got into a Christmassy mood! I’m looking forward to the ‘big day’ coming around this year, or maybe I’m just excited at the thought of turning the house into Santa’s grotto? Either way, I love the run up to Christmas, and…

Juggling cakes with my full time job was pretty full on and I did struggle a little, but luckily in the end everything worked out and…

Evening everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine has been pretty chilled and very family orientated and it’s been so lovely to have just a nice relaxing day. I hadn’t got an outfit planned for the day, so I chose to wear this very last minute! I’ve had this dress for over a year, I received it last year from Ahai, one of those Asian clothing stores. I wore it to a Christmas event last year and hadn’t…

We aren’t massive on Christmas in our family. It’s definitely more about spending time with loved ones and eating a hell of a lot of nice food, rather than buying extravagant gifts. I know some people buy their parents laptops etc and receive very luxurious gifts, but we don’t usually buy each other big things. My parents always ask me not to buy them anything in fact, but I get them a little something each anyway. It’s always nice to have…
