happy early christmas to me!


November has been a relatively stressful month in terms of getting to grips with uni work and planning essays combined with a LOT of overtime at my part time job. So it was particularly amazing that Ladbrokes apparently read my mind and sent me this early christmas present which practically screams RELAX at you. Yesterday I lit the (gorgeously scented) candle, made a cup of tea in one of my new mugs and snuggled on the sofa for a flick through a magazine and for about an hour or so I felt completely calm! 

I think putting together a little box of treats like this is a perfect idea for a Christmas present, you could do something similar to this one for someone you know who needs to chill out a bit, or you could do a box of pampering beauty items for a skincare mad friend...the options are endless! 

Thanks for the treat Ladbrokes, you've really put me in the mood for Christmas now!
