These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

One week to go until I'm off work for Christmas! I'm so excited, but at the same time I can't believe it's almost the end of 2015 already - crazy! I had a few little bits and pieces I wanted to blog about this month, so I thought I'd put them all together as a sort of December favourites type thing.

When House of Fraser contacted me and asked if I wanted to take part in their #secretstylist Secret Santa I didn't have to think about it for very long - anything Christmas related and I'm in! The idea was for each blogger to pick out a piece of jewellery or two for another blogger that they were allocated. I picked a few bits and pieces out for Where Is Harriet - I hope she liked them!

I actually ended up receiving mine after the big reveal of who had sent to who as I had major problems with my post, but this weekend I finally got to unwrap my little gift from the lovely Lauren Loves...! Aren't they beautiful? The bracelet is right up my street - I love the pastel and gold together. I've really got into layering delicate necklaces recently so I'm excited to add this gorgeous pendant to my collection - it's so sparkly and perfect for Christmas.

If you're still looking for a few last minute Christmas prezzies definitely check out the House of Fraser jewellery section - there's definitely something for everyone there!

Is it just me who FREAKING loves TK Maxx? It's genuinely one of my favourite places - I don't think I've ever walked out without having treated myself to a little something. Me and Sean went along to get some Christmas decorations the other weekend but I spotted a set of 6 Nails Inc x Alexa Chung nail varnishes for the bargain price of £20 and just could not help myself. They're uh-mazing - I'm not even sorry for buying these instead of bits for our tree.

Last but not least - this diary. Potentially the best diary that I have ever come across ever. It's by Busy B, who I had never actually heard of before, but it turns out that they're based in Edinburgh! It's the ultimate diary for a blogger, because it has 2 separate week to view pages for each week, which means that you can have one side for home (and your blog planning) and one for work. This is fab for me, as my planner at the moment is filled with almost unreadable scribbles trying to fit everything into one section! It's also super pretty, which helps! 

I had a look at the website today and have already made a list of a bunch of other bits that I want - stationery heaven you guys! I really want this cute travel wallet, this recipe file and maybe also this notebook, just because. Also I thought it would all be a bit pricy, but the diary was only £9.99 and everything else is pretty bargainous too - score!
