    Feel like this turning into one scarf, two outfits kinda thing but ignore that for now because guys, I need to tell you about something else. Don’t think I have ever told anybody this before. I’m kinda ashamed of myself, and well just really really disappointed in myself.

    Homemade chocolate balls – I mean truffles

    You know how like last year I went a little fudge crazy? Dont worry – I have learnt from my mistakes. There will be no fudging fudge this year. Mainly because I think I might be sick if I have to ever make another batch of fudge. Instead this year I thought I would make something that didn’t require so much erm candy knowledge… dont know if thats even a thing..

    MUST see Christmas Movies

    H A P P Y   S A T U R D A Y

    My plan today was to get up super early and tick off lots of things on my todo list. Alas, the weather is crap and all I wanna do is snuggle up on the sofa with a massive cup of tea and a Christmas movie. There’s a million of these lists out there, and I doubt I am adding anything new really. The 1st of December marks the first day of christmas movie binging for me. It usually starts with whatever crappy straight to movie Lifetime Hallmark crap I can find on Netflix and Prime, and then as soon as we hit 7 days before the big 2-4 WHAM – on with the goodstuff, and by good stuff, I mean these great choices below!

    The Grinch

    Although I have never been a huge Jim Carrey fan, I love him in this movie. Growing up in the states I grew up with Dr. Suess so this movie is close to my heart.

    The Santa Clause

    Ok, hands down this is my favorite christmas movie. I don’t know what it is, but when the entry music starts, I get all christmassy and tingly inside. I can watch this over and over and over ahaha

    Love actually

    Its just not christmas without Love actually, this movie is just so filled with love, and its so heart warming. It now hits on other hearts strings since the passing of Alan Rickman earlier this year.

    Home Alone 2

    They say there is nothing like christmas in New York, and even though I have never celebrated christmas in NYC I feel like Home Alone 2 just takes me that little bit closer and look its Trump!

    Arthur Christmas

    I don’t love SGI movies but Arthur Christmas is just so charming, and funny and loveable, and who doesn’t love an underdog coming to save the day?

    Right enough of this, I think its movie time!

    Secret Santa gifts for under £10

    Secret Santa, the love to hate tradition all companies seem to have embraced over the years. I mean, yes it’s lovely receiving presents, and it’s even more lovely to give! That is, to people that you know. Because who the hell is Larry from the special-there-is-no-such-department? And what on earth do you get a person you don’t know, and how on earth do you manage to get it for under £10?! I mean, you can barely get chewing gum for £10?! F U Larry. Just F U and your existence. As if this time of year wasn’t stressful enough, you have now gone and added more stress to it.

    Luckily for Larry though, I have heard, seen, and experienced some Secret Santa horror stories up close over the years, and I am going to do you all a massive favour and share my expertise with you. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I am too nice to you. Originally I was gonna do this as a cute little flatlay, buy all the stuff and the nicely lay it out for you to look at but LOL who has time for that?!

    Filthy animals

    Today I accomplished something I haven’t done in a while. Today I woke up drunk. It brought back some glorious memories of my days at uni when Charlotte and I spent 10 days in a party haze and only sobered up to drive home to get to work a Saturday morning at 7am. Such rebellions, but as Dorothy says, somebody’s gotta raise a little hell. Which is btw like my favorite song at the moment! You should check it out watch?v=rmYyPcEQKU4

    Last nights christmas party went luckily unpublished on social media, which I think is very lucky on my part, as I am proud to say it involved downing a Le Fizz cocktail and dancing on the dinner table at Circus like the filthy animals we are.

    Arn’t you proud of me mom?! 😀

    Alas no rest of the wicked, and there are designs that erm need designing. Is it socially acceptable to eat a pint of Ben&Jerry’s at work? Hello hangover cravings. I gotta admit, I am a little ashamed that we are on the 7th of December and I havent really shared any christmas goodies with you. Dont worry though, there is a festive little treat coming tomorrow about how to buy a secret santa presents – cause I am basically the boss at it. In the mean time you can check out my last years post about the best movies to watch if you arent ready to embrace the christmas movies yet, the best way to decorate AND assemble a gingerbread house, and some cheeky present ideas for her  

    Later babes!

    Matching the walls

    So you know when you buy a gorgeous light blue turquoise coat, and like all  your coat goals come together at once? And then, you know when you’re wandering around east London after a fabulous brunch with Simply Argan, Lauren from SaharaSplash sees a wall that totes matches your coat color?

    Oh sweet holy jam! It’s like a match made in heaven!

     

    but it’s also freezing and windy and like NOT ideal for outfit pics. I believe my face below just says it all.
