Blogmas Day 9, 10 & 11 - 3 posts in 1

Hello everyone, you might have noticed that its been a little quiet here over the last few days and that's because I've had a few technical difficulties. Firstly, I thought I'd killed my laptop, then the wifi wouldn't work, but I'm pleased to say I'm now back up and running. I was so disappointed that I hadn't been able to upload my posts, I thought I would compile all three into one big post, so I hope you don't mind. 

Blogmas Day 9

It wouldn't be Christmas without making a gingerbread house, even though most of the family don't actually like gingerbread. Last year, I bought this make your own kit from Lidl and when I saw they were back in store again, I picked it up straight away. First of all, its so cheap - I paid £4.99. Secondly, the pieces are already baked, which is great because I definitely can't bake at all! Thirdly, it comes with loads of sweets - much more than you can fit on the house, so there are always some left over to snack on. 

Its really good fun to make and certainly puts me in the festive mood. Here is the finished house...

Blogmas Day 10

For me Christmas is very much a time when I want to be cosy and comfortable, surrounded by my close friends and family. Check out my latest video, sharing some of the things I would recommend for a cosy Christmas. I will even link it below so that its easy to watch - make sure you're subscribed to my channel because I'm uploading videos twice a week and would hate for you to miss out on any. 

Blogmas Day 11

It's that time of year again when now I've finished my Christmas shopping, I'm looking at all of the pretty things that I would love to receive, so I thought I would do a quick wishlist with some of the items currently on my wishlist...

How cute is this BaByliss hair styler and its only £32 from John Lewis

Okay, so the next few items are very much in my dreams because I wouldn't ever expect anyone to spend this amount of money on a present for me but how amazing is this set of Bobbi Brown luxe classic lipstick minis. I saw these on John Lewis website and fell in love but at £99 I have no chance!

Another item would be the short UGG boots, which I have always preferred in the chestnut colour but £167 is pretty steep for some footwear. These are available from various retailers, all about the same price. 

I love the scent of Molton Brown products but I have never owned any. This stocking fillers set from John Lewis would be perfect for me to sample all of the different scents and is available for £39

I have had my eye on this complete bliss Neom candle for what feels like ages. Every time I go into John Lewis, I've always gone straight over to the little display they have in there. These are available for £27

How gorgeous is this Olivia Burton watch. It feels like they are everywhere at the moment but this large face with the chain detail band is definitely my favourite. This is currently available from Asos for £98

I really want a blanket scarf but haven't found one I like... until now. This is available from not on the high street and even comes personalised at a cost of £18 all together. 

I love receiving accessories at Christmas and I have fallen in love with this purse. I love the scallop detailing and even more love the colour because I'm obsessed with blush pink at the moment. Even better, its currently available on Asos for £5.50!

Skinnydip is everywhere at the moment and I love the look of this initial keyring, again from Asos for £6.

I don't know if its because I'm getting older, but I've really struggled to find things that I actually want this year. I feel like I have so much stuff, that whilst I love it all, I'm rapidly running out of space to store things and I think my wishlist reflects that. 

Sorry that this post is slightly late and that its a few days in one but as I explained above, it couldn't be helped. 

I will be back with another post (hopefully) tomorrow, so make sure you check back then!
