I am ridiculously unorganised for Christmas this year. I did purchase part of my husbands present today so that’s something but I haven’t even written my card list. Plan for this weekend – SORT IT OUT.
That said we have started with the festive celebrations – we saw The Snowman show at The Peacock Theatre last weekend which was just beautiful. And tomorrow we’re going to do the London Eye – Elves Eye View. And putting up the tree. And the advent calendars are good to go. And the elf… so maybe I’m actually a little more sorted than I think.
Now, I’ve been intending to get together some Christmas gift guides for, ooh, the last month. But busy times/the juggle/work got in the way so I’m VERY last minute. I’m working on the baby & kid’s versions but for now here’s what I want for Christmas. Though my husband did just tell me that our new DUSKY PINK velvet blinds are my Christmas present because I had a change of mind and have spent a small fortune on switching fabrics last minute! Drama.
BUT, in an ideal world the above would be what I would most like for Christmas. As well as the electric video doorbell (thanks Mum).
The Zara Home stoneware mugs I love, they’re quite a bargain and at the moment most people who enter are house are offered their tea in some form of freebie or novelty mug which feels a bit ‘student’… The beauty products, well let’s just say I need all the help I can get (I’m getting well into beauty treatments too – I had my eyebrows tinted and shaped for the first time ever at Blink Brow Bar this week and I feel like a new woman *slight exaggeration*). I LOVE all of the Hotel Magique prints from Cissy Wears and this would look so pretty in our lounge. The bag. I need a bag like this. I have big bags, backpacks and clutch bags but nothing in-between and have been threatening to buy myself a Celine one for years then when it comes to the purchase I just can’t hand over £1400+ for a bag right now. This feels like a slightly more acceptable price tag for something equally as cool.
The Kikki K book would be great for bringing some focus to my days. And I’m hoping The Freelance Mum will also enlighten me on how to bring more balance to my life. The jumper I just really, really want. Note to husband. The socks are more of a necessity at the moment and I’m quite jealous of my 4-year-old daughters sock game right now so need to up my own. And finally, the Maria Tash earring I want along with another piercing thank you very much!
Also, please excuse my SHOCKING photoshop skills. Maybe I should book myself a on course as a Christmas gift to myself…
So, I hope this helps in case you’re thinking about your own list. And if you fancy buying me any of the above, feel free… the links are in the credit names if you want a closer look.
What do YOU want for Christmas? I’d love to know!!
