So it’s officially December and now the Christmas posts can begin.
I’ve been well and truly getting in to the Christmas spirit lately by doing a little Christmas Shopping. So over the next few days I’m going to bring you posts about what I bought. I’m going to start with Cath Kidston.
Cath Kidston is easily my favourite shop. I own over 50 Cath Kidston bags so I’m always browsing their catalogues and website. When the Christmas Catalogue came I was browsing through and instantly fell in love with two snow globes they had to offer. I ordered them right away.
The first one is the blue London Snow Globe.
I love Cath Kidston because it’s so quintessentially British and it doesn’t get more British than Big Ben and a red London bus!
The second one I ordered is the red Billie Snow Globe.
A nice little surprise that I didn’t know when these arrived is that they’re also musical! They play We Wish You A Merry Christmas in the same plinky plonky way a jewellery box did when you were a child.
I absolutely love these and know they’re going to look lovely with all my other Christmas decorations.
Please tell me it’s not just me that thinks November has passed in the blink of an eye? And now here we are approaching December and Christmas at break neck speed!! So, before November completely disappears here’s what I got up to.
Christmas cups arrived at Costa! I love these, the Christmas cups are designed to look like Christmas jumpers. It’s like your cup has a Christmas jumper on to keep your coffee/hot chocolate warm. So far I’ve tried the Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate and the Mint Hot Chocolate. Has to be said both taste divine. I’ve not actually tried any of the coffees yet but believe me, it won’t be long!
On November 5th I went to a baby shower. I’ve never been to a baby shower before but it was so much fun. It was all planned for them by another good friend and she did fun games, a quiz and arranged a stunning venue which is where this picture was taken. We went to The Vintage Tea Room in Fareham. I’d never been there before and it was so lovely. We had sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, then the most delicious slices of cake. I’d definitely visit again.
I went in to Southampton and did some shopping in November. I went to John Lewis in West Quay to look at the Buster’s Garden range and bought these two cuties. Well you all know I have an obsession with foxes. There’s more about these guys coming in my Christmas Haul posts. They start on December 1st so be sure to check them out.
It wouldn’t be my blog or a monthly roundup with out a picture of the Solent now would it? I still sometimes look at this view literally a two minute walk from my front door and think “Wow, I live here!” It still doesn’t feel real sometimes but here we are heading towards our second Christmas here.
Finally, whilst visiting a local garden centre they had reindeer! They were so lovely and you were able to stroke them and hand feed them. Naturally I had a go at feeding one. It felt very magical to be hand feeding one of Santa’s Reindeer 😉
