NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Weekender: Hello, December

December 1st. Day one of 25 glorious days where I wake up and scream lines from Elf to the boyfriend. Poor boyfriend. This week has been a crazy one: Paris, sick days, crazy work days, christmas shopping, birthday parties, and finally - Christmas tree shopping today (i'm glazing over the staggering amount of housework I have to do here) and I couldn't be more excited to get our first tree up in our first home. I think I'm more excited for the decorating than Christmas day itself. I might be having two of my favourite London girls, Luce and Lauren to stay next weekend. So expect plenty of festive fun coming your way from the three of us! *girly squeals*

In addition to a crazy amount of christmas shopping yesterday I managed to find enough time to fit some outfit snaps in and grab a coffee - yay red Starbucks cups! My drink of choice this year has got to be the Orange Mocha. Costa do their own version, but for serious sweet tooth's the Starbucks one wins hands down. 

What else do I have planned for this weekend? Three of my favourites: festive jumpers, films and family roast dinners. Oh December, it's good to have you back...

  3. There's nothing like the run up to Christmas! I have so much homework to get done, all handing in on Dec 13th, but I'm determined to get it done ASAP so it can't ruin my festive fun.

    Lots of Gingerbread lattes (for energy of course) seem to be in my future!

  6. The red Starbucks cups are how you know Christmas is coming soon. We don't get orange mocha here so I don't know what those are like but I'm very partial to the toffee nut lattes right now!

  23. I LOVE decorating for Christmas, too! I put up our tree (my first Christmas tree, ever! Since this is my first Christmas that I spend at home and not visiting my parents) and decorated the rest of our living room.

    Are you going to share some of your decorations on the blog or on youtube? I sure hope so, I love seeing other people's festive homes!

  24. I am all about Christmas, the tree, the decorations, scented candles and of course THE PRESENTS!
    My beauty blog is pretty much a festive blog over the next few weeks - ooops.
    Also can't believe I have never had an orange mocha - how has this happened? Really looking forward to reading more of your Christmas posts.
