This Week I... (#13)

Had a lovely festive day with the family. It was lovely to spend time with my cousins, eat tons of pizza and drink more J2O's than thought humanly possible. My cousin Imogen made the coolest cupcakes ever, so definitely look out for those in the next few days.

Finished my Christmas shopping. Yay. I also finished wrapping my gifts too. The brown paper was from the local post office, and the ribbon was cheap as chips, but I think it looks really pretty! These are currently sat under the little tree in my room, but I can't wait to see how they look under the main tree!

Broke up from school! The last day is always the best of the term. I mean endless supplied of chocolate, films and festive cheer?! On a slightly more random note, I'm quite a few days behind on my advent calendar. You know what I'll be scoffing later!

Got the coolest boots ever. I've been looking for the perfect pair of cut out boots* for weeks, and I think these may be them. They're from Bank and they're unbelievably comfortable. Plus, they go with everything! I love wearing little frilly or cable knit socks with them, just peeking out of the cut outs. 

Updated my skincare routine. After two uses of Let The Good Times Roll, I've decided I like it. The smell is phenomenal. Like wow. Plus, as it's slightly grainy it acts as a slight exfoliator too - perfect. I just grab a small piece, run it under water and massage it into my face.

Fell in love with Diptique candles. I didn't fall in love with the price though. My Dad and I were in Space NK, and I was just stood there smelling every single candle and fragrance. Mmmmm. Now that I've given them a sniff, I know why they're so hyped up!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping?
What have you done this week?

  3. I've been tempted by Diptyque candles for years now but I just can't justify the price! I think brown paper wrapping looks lovely, simple but so nice! Hope you have a fab Christmas xxx
