Happy Monday, hope your day is going well so far!
Monday morning starts always feel that tiny bit more bearable throughout December when there’s advent chocolate to be eaten and fairy lights twinkling but I must admit I still did a mini cry when my alarm went off this morning! You may or may not have noticed that I took a little break from my roundup post last week as I was feeling a little off, my blogging/gymming/general motivation was lacking so I decided to take a little break in the hope that my MOJO would return again. I’m feeling a little better and back to my old self this week so here’s what I’ve been getting up to, and be warned things are about to get pretty festive around here!
Christmas inspired breakfasts
Crumpets are pretty great at the best of times but when they’re in the shape of Christmas trees I don’t think things can really get much better. I look forward to these appearing on the shelves at ASDA every single year because they’re just SO cute and they always go down pretty well on Instagram too…
Black Friday treats
I’ve wanted to add a pair of the Vans Old Skool trainers to my shoe collection for the longest time but have never quite been able to commit, until Black Friday that is when I bought two pairs…oops! I got the classic black pair and a blue pair too which would be better suited to summer dressing so I’m torn on whether to send them back. So far I’m loving how comfy and cosy these are, perfect for days when I want something a bit more relaxed!
A cosy Friday night in
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a quiet Friday night in and after what felt like a very long week it was exactly what I was looking forward to. After getting home from work and putting on my festive pj’s we had an evening of watching TV and making a dent in the box of Quality Street we picked up, perfect!
Making a start on Christmas shopping
I made sure to get started on my Christmas shopping whilst the Black Friday sales were on and I picked up a few lovely gifts that I half wish I could keep myself! I’m hoping to get the rest of the shopping finished off this week so the rest of the lead up to Christmas can be stress-free!
Putting up the Christmas decorations
Yesterday we headed to pick out a Christmas tree which was sooo exciting as I’ve never had a real tree before so this was a real treat! We also needed decorations so we went a little crazy in Homebase and filled our basket full of cute red, white and wooden ornaments. We stuck on some Christmas songs, sipped on prosecco and made our house feel like a little grotto. I’m really chuffed with how it came out, it was such a lovely afternoon and it’s really put me in the festive spirit!
Also, since the start of December I’ve been giving Vlogmas a go, I absolutely love watching everyone else’s videos and always want to give vlogging a try so I’ve finally plucked up the courage and the first part will be going live tonight. I’d love to hear what you think so make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel to have a watch, oh and please try to excuse the northern accent…
Hope you’re having a great start to the week!
