A bit late in the day for my December #littleloves huh? Seeing as it’s almost mid January. But I figured why not?
December was perhaps a little quieter than usual, but it was rather a dreamy month with trips out with friends, a fabulous Christmas market. a visit to Santa and of course a birthday for a very special little boy.
Here’s what made it to the list last month:
December was a great month for books after a rather slow November book-wise. I devoured Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Enjoyed a festive themed book – The Mother of All Christmases. And read the fabulous The Happiness Project. All of which I really enjoyed.
I started watching the new series of The Marvellous Mrs Maisel. It’s every bit is good as the first and there’s a lot of bittersweet moments in there, along with some fabulous fashion.
Browsing through YouTube I came across this fab vlog about applying under eye concealer when you’re not an 18 year old YouTuber without an eye bag in sight. I’m not usually one for YouTube, but I found myself falling down a rabbit hole after watching this video. I may have even bought one of the concealers she recommends (Maybelline eraser eye) and it sure seems to work!
I was so late to the party with this one, but I FINALLY got around to seeing A Star is Born and OH MY GOD how amazing is it? I loved every second.
I managed to get my hands on the pink leopard print shirt dress from M&S and Holly Willoughby just as it went into the sales. Lucky I did as it’s completely sold out online now and people are flogging it on ebay for double it’s original price. Needless to say at just £30 in the sale I got myself a bit of a bargain. It’s the perfect dress to dress up and down and oh so flattering. I’ll be wearing it twice next week. That’s how much I love it.
I ‘made’ this little one’s birthday cake on Christmas Day. And by ‘made’ I mean I bought a cake from Sainsbury’s, made the teen make party hats for some of his dinosaurs and dumped them on top of the cake. He absolutely loved it. And instead of stressing myself out baking and icing a cake on Christmas Eve, I saved a fortune and gave myself a break. Win win all round.
This one shrieking with delight as he opened yet more presents on Christmas Day. It’s a hard job having your birthday on Christmas Day, but someone’s got to do it. It seems having a massive cuddly dinosaur sat next to you as you open your presents helps enormously.
