Little update and festive feels

It's been a while since I wrote on here (since April in fact) and you could say a few things have changed since the, (i wont bore you with the details). But I've missed posting on my little space to ramble on about rubbish. So I thought I what better time to start back up again than the festive season. That's right I used the word Festive!
The shops are starting to play the Christmas tunes to spread a little cheer as we start the hectic job of Christmas shopping. There's no denying it Christmas is on its way (and I love it!) everyone is drinking their favourite festive drinks, (I can't get enough off costa's Black Forest hot chocolates, delicious) and the dark nights a creeping in close. A lot of people moan saying November is to early to get in the Christmas spirit, but I'm not going to lie I've had the Christmas songs on since Halloween finished! 
I'm usually your typical over festive, love Christmas kinda girl but this year I seem to have started even earlier. I'm back at my mums now, (part of the story I'm not going to bore you with) so I can't just put up my decorations when I want to (probs a good job or my house would look like Santa's grotto by now!). But that does t stop me from adding a few festive touches to my bedroom. 

I picked up this gorgeous bedding from -->Asda<-- it's festive with its cute little Christmas tree's and candy canes but not to in your face. The little fawns give it the ultimate cute factor, I just couldn't resist them. 

What is Christmas without a tree? I couldn't put up my big one ski settled for this adorable little one that looks so festive with its little lights and baubles. Complete with two festive candles and my room is. . . Beginning to look a lot like Christmas! (Did you sing that in your head like I did?). 

Sooo that's all I have to tell you in this little festive update. How are you feeling about Christmas? Is it to early or are you ready to to go full elf? (Speaking of elf I might go out that on now, byyyeee!) 


Things that have made me smile | week 82

I've been a little shut off from the online world and have enjoyed a social media, work free week, yes that's right WORK FREE! A bliss 11 days off full of coffee in bed, lie ins till lunch time and lots and lots of delicious food //tomorrow marks day one of post week off detox//. 

Things that have made me smile . . .

One. . . / Going on a much needed night out. Did I drink too many cocktails? Yes. Did I stay up till the sun came up? Yes. Did I regret it all when my head was banging the next day? Of course, but those are the best nights and it felt good to let my hair down. 

Two. . . / A trip too the zoo, seeing all those cute animals is enough to put a smile on my face. The monkeys are always in appropriate but still cute. 

Three. . . / Going to flamingo land, I knew I didn't like rides but I still went anyway and yes it confirmed it I don't like rides, I don't like heights and my feet should be firmly on the ground. That being said I still had fun cycling, pooing my pants on the children's rides and nearly getting pooed on by the birds in the zoo area. 

Four. . . / Staying in bed all day and binge watching Netflix, can we just say how good 13 reasons why is and how hard it hits you in the feels. Riverdale and Girlboss are also great watches. 

Five. . . / Spending a sunny Sunday walking to a lovely little pub, eating my weight in roast dinner and chocolate fudge cake before returning home to eat the last of my Easter eggs and watch more Netflix.

And that's my week all wrapped up, it's one of the best I've had in a while. I hope you've all had a lovely week.

Things that have made me smile | week 81

It's been a busy old week again, full of work, fun and laughter. We've had a couple of sunny days and the daffodils are popping up everywhere, Spring is creeping up on us but were not quiet there yet. I love seeing the flowers everywhere they always put a little smile on my face. 

Other things that have made me smile . . .

1// Going to Aqua Zumba fitness class, I know I know I start a diet every Monday and never stick to it but I'm holding throwing in a little exercise will help keep that Monday motivation. The class is actually pretty fun too, silly moves that no one can see you mess up (believe me I mess up a lot) because your under the water. 

2// Pub quiz, this is the second time we've been now and our knowledge has not improved, we came last but we had fun getting to last place, and so,e points are better than none right? 

3// Doing a little shopping, I bought Ed Sheeran's new albums on vinyl and can we just all take a minute to appreciate how amazing it is!! There's not a single song on there that I don't LOVE! 

4// Having a Saturday date night in (cheesy I know) we cooked food, drank wine (obvs) and watched a movie with popcorn, PERFECT. And all in the comfort on my pj's! 

5// Having a very slow Sunday, it's all about the lay ins, coffee and food.

I hope you all have a lovely week.
