The Christmas post

This post will contain- decorations, gifts for others, my personal wishlist, where to buy that special dress you've been searching for, tips and tricks, etc. I'm also doing a literal Christmas inspiration board that will appear more towards Christmas (it's turning out to be so fun that i might carry it and do one each month).


Sterling Furniture

Selection from Re-found objects.

Selection from Red Direct.

(A selection of cones that you can throw on to the fire and they burn different colours)
Selection from Lakeland.

Using this as a decoration gives you another excuse to buy. At £5 for one cracker, we should call it an investment. ThisWorks Christmas cracker.

Selection from Anthropologie.

You could go the diy route. Remember as a kid you made snowflakes? Bunting out of pretty paper is also an option. You can make quite a few bits with a good playdoh recipe. For food check out the gluttonous vegan for vegan, yummy and creative ideas.

Buying for others-

Knitting. With the spare time and relative visits, it's worth a try.
I found out the other day that you can buy craft supplies from Etsy. Saw the perfect ring and fancy making your own take on it?

If you're not too keen on that idea, Hawkins Bazaar do a lovely half way

paint your own russian dolls.

For women/girlies

(This comes with a personal thumbs up from me)
