My Running Christmas Wish List

I actually haven’t got as many items on my wish list this year. The reason being that I’m losing weight so I don’t want to get too many things that in a few months won’t fit anymore. If you want to read my wish list post from last year then it can be found here –> My Christmas Wish List 2017

Without further ado here is my 2018 Running Christmas Wish List.

runr hoodie

The runr Midnight Hoodie in Island Blue. Modelled by my lovely friend Kerry! runr hoodies are such good quality but it’s time for me to size down!

runr tshirt

runr Midnight t-shirt in Berry –  I’ve never been able to fit in to one of runr’s tshirts before so now is the time. I figured this was a nice little reward for losing weight.

Contra running tights

Contra Movement Women’s Running Tights – The profits from the items you buy on Contra go back to parkrun which is why I like using them for running gear. I’m struggling for running tights that aren’t too big at the minute so these will be gratefully received.

Nike tights

Nike Running Dri-Fit Power Essential Running Tights – Again, I’m struggling for running tights that aren’t too big so it’s time for me to size down. I’ve always worn Nike to run in so I’m just topping up the collection.

My Christmas Wishlist

I love looking at these on other people’s blogs. This isn’t a gift ideas post, this is a list of the items I’ve asked for, for Christmas. It’s mostly centred around running to be honest with just a sprinkle of girly glitter.

More Christmas Items

This weekend I had a look round The Range to see if I could find anymore Christmas decorations. We’d recently had a catalogue pushed through the letterbox and after a quick flick through I decided it might be worth a visit.

I was a little disappointed when we got there. A lot of the things I’d see in the catalogue simply weren’t there. I don’t know if they just didn’t have them or if they’d sold out. I know a lot of items are out of stock on the website.

As I’ve mentioned before we only have reindeers on our Christmas tree and to be honest there weren’t that many reindeer items there.

However, it wasn’t a complete waste of time as I managed to find these cute tea light holders. I opted for two so I could have one on each side of the fireplace.

I love how the gold antlers provide a little bit of contrast against all the white. They were an absolute steal at only £1.99 too!

How are your Christmas plans coming along? Is it too early to be thinking about it?

I’ve Started Preparing For Christmas Already!

Last year I did a Christmas Haul series. This year I’ve started preparing for Christmas already at one of my favourite local shops Finishing Touches.

Finishing Touches

Taken from Google Maps

I saw a post on their Facebook page saying Christmas stock had started arriving and I knew I needed to take a look. If you followed my blog last year you’ll know all my Christmas Decorations are Reindeers. Basically I’m obsessed with them. So when I saw these lovely fellas, I knew I had to buy them.

Reindeer Christmas Decorations

They’re so cute, just look at their little faces!

The shop has stock arriving most days so I’m sure I’ll be back for more! Have you started prepping for Christmas yet?

What I Got For Christmas

I know some people don’t like these type of posts so feel free to skip by. I however love seeing what other people got. It gives me ideas for presents to ask for with my Birthday being on the way. I’m not going to detail all of my presents but below are some of my favourite presents.

Mickey Mouse Purse and Mary Poppins Bottle

My friends know I love Disney. These were part of my presents from two work colleagues. The drinks bottle is hard to photograph but it’s Mary Poppins and on one side has Mary’s silhouette and the other says “Practically Perfect In Every Way” I love Mary Poppins, it’s one of my favourite movies. My friend popped a coin in the Mickey Mouse purse so hopefully now it will never be empty.

Minnie Mouse Watch

How cute is this Minnie Mouse watch?! My mum got me this as a present I could open. I ask for vouchers from my mum a lot. My birthday is right after Christmas so all my gifts come at once. If I ask for vouchers I can then get myself things through the year. It helps stretch out the presents a little more. It’s from Avon and has a rubber strap which I like because in my work I can sometimes get messy and rubber straps are much easier to clean!

A gift from my keyworker

Speaking of work, here is part of a present one of the children from work got me. I absolutely love it. It’s very chintz and Cath Kidston-esque so it’s perfect for me, and the statement is all true hehe.

Cath Kidston Leopard Flower Backpack

Whilst we’re talking of Cath Kidston it’s time to bring on the big guns. Here’s one of 3 Cath Kidston bags. It’s the Leopard Flower backpack. I was lusting after this a while ago  but it went out of stock quickly. I saw on Twitter just before Christmas that it had come back in stock and dropped a few hints to my husband. It has so many pockets, this is going to become my new work bag.

Now for one of my absolute favourites. The Mickey in London Disney X Cath Kidston backpack. I love it. I was gutted when the pre sale took place and I had everything in my basket but the website was so busy I couldn’t check out and so I sat watching things sell out and one by one disappear from my basket. My husband got the email there was more in stock whilst I was at work and got straight on it and ordered this and…

Disney X Cath Kidston Spot Mini Satchel

This! The Disney X Cath Kidston Minnie and Mickey Mouse spot Mini Satchel. It’s perfection. I absolutely love it. It’s just the right size for when you’re popping out and don’t want to take a big handbag with you.

So there you have it. I’ve been one lucky girl this year.
