midweek mixture

3 November 2011

001. My gorgeous friend Emily from Beauty My Way sent me a lovely parcel the other day. In it was the cutest card and a HUGE Yankee Candle in 'River Valley' which is one of the new fragrances. It was so so sweet of her and I can't stop smelling the candle (she knows how much I adore Yankee Candle!). It was a late present to welcome me into my new flat which was just so sweet. If you don't follow Emily's blog, check it out! She's a babe!

002. Working in a boarding school as a resident member of staff means we get a day off during the week, which is a massive bonus (as we work weekends). I decided to head off to get my Christmas shopping underway, and boy did I do well. I'm not going to say what presents I got in case any of my family reads this (cheeeeky) but I will show you a little something I bought for myself. I popped into Next Home and came across these cute little Christmas figures. There is a Christmas tree, an angel, and a star. They're clear and once turned on, shine different colours. I thought they would look cute on a windowsill or next to my tv, and they were only £3.50 each! They're also in the 3 for 2 deal at the moment :)

003. I had my first Starbucks Christmas drink today! They were released today (yey!) and it's always when I really feel Winter is here. I sat down and had an egg nog latte, and a turkey, bacon and cranberry panini at lunch, and oh my goshhh was it good. I am overjoyed at the return of the red cups!

Is anyone else starting to get excited about Christmas?! I must admit I do get excited reeeally early! It really is starting to feel like Winter. Wrap up warm guys! Bonfire night is almost here!
