Yesterday when trying to plan my diary I had a mini panic attack realising how close Christmas was! I completely didn’t realise it’s now only two weeks away and I’ve been feeling totally unprepared! There always seems to be so much to do! Meeting up with people, parties, dinners, shopping, baking, wrapping.. its never ending! Luckily the Christmas home decor is my favourite part and I had a helping hand this year from the lovely people at Dunelm. Dunelm is one of my favourite stores for homewares and they have so many gorgeous things over the festive season! I was…

Just a quick little post here, but also just wanted to update you all that I’ve changed my blog layout ever so slightly! I’ve changed the background to a less bright and garish one, and also minimised my header design. It was looking a bit crowded I thought and I wanted something a bit sleeker. And then finally I changed my font to one I think is clearer, and removed the icons from the ‘Pages’ tabs above. I hope you all like it! Let me know what you think 🙂 My Mum brought home this Food Family Living magazine from…

Most of my presents have been delivered now, although I feel so…

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 thought it would be nice to put Christmas sweets in or a candle. Dunelm sell a really similar one…

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 there’s nothing better than doing some festive preparations in a novelty Christmas jumper! I’ve sported a couple of such…
