    As I’m sure I’ve mentioned, at the end of November I moved house. And, as I haven’t yet mentioned – the place is a lot bigger than our previous flat. So much so, that I’m actually looking forward to Christmas time more than I have for a good year or two. (I might even leave a mince pie out for Santa at this rate…). And on which note, I thought I’d share ten of the things I’m looking forward to…

    As I mentioned a few posts back, I’ve been helping organize our offices Christmas party (and have for the last few, what can I say, I love a good party!). Aside from that, I’ve also inherited arranging our departments annual Secret Santa and helping ensure that employees the London office opt in or out of the office-wide one.  Since then and setting the budget, I feel like everywhere I’ve looked recently I’ve seen potential gifts depending on what colleagues I happen…

    Too Faced “Merry KissMas” Gift Set || Beauty

    I hate to admit it, but every year I look forward to scoring a few bargains in the Boxing Day / January sales. However, after deciding against waiting in the lush queue for their half price sale and avoiding picking up any of the Boots gift sets I thought that I’d made it through the sales without spending a penny. Unheard of for me. But all that changed when I went onto the Debenhams website to replace my foundation and…

    In the run up to Christmas, one of my favourite evenings is always the one spent decorating the house. I don’t know about you, but in our house we spend an evening making the place look festive and then celebrate with a glass of mulled wine. We buy a new decoration each year and we always look for a unique way to style our living room year on year without blowing the budget. So when I heard about John Lewis’ Treetorials,…

    Since first being shown in 1995, Coke’s adverts featuring the bright red Coca-Cola truck have become a sign Christmas is nearly here.

    Finding The Perfect Gift with Debenhams – Found It! || Christmas

    November 7, 2016 FrannyMac

    I know it seems a little early to start mentioning Christmas on here, but there are only seven more Fridays to go before Santa Claus is eating those mince pies you left out and dropping off gifts under the tree. Last year, I left buying a few of my main gifts until I got paid on Christmas Eve. Sadly, due to an error with our payroll, the money didn’t go in until the 29th. Needless to say, it left me in mad stress. With…

    Normally by the 22nd of December I am living on a diet of mince pies, Quality Street and mulled wine while I count down how many sleeps until Santa comes.
