It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

Hi!
Something a little bit different today. I mentioned on my last post that I was going to a Victorian Christmas event today which actually happened to be a Tudor one this year. It was so lovely, we had mulled wine and mince pies in the restaurant and then went inside the manor house (it was built in 1280!) to sing some carols and watch a traditional performance by people called 'mummers'. There were also lots of chances to do Christmas crafts.
Here's some photos from the day:










Also our Christmas tree is now up, and I've spent this afternoon decorating. I chose a traditional gold and red theme.

There was also this little gem I found in the bottom of the decorations which I remember making in infant school when I was around 5. Just looking at him makes me laugh!

New ASOS purchases..

Hello everyone!
Happy December! I don't let myself feel Christmassy until the start of this month, because I think it spoils it a bit if it's so drawn out. But let me tell you I am definitely feeling festive now, after starting a little bit of present shopping, seeing the Christmas lights and having a gingerbread latte. (The only thing missing was opening the first door on my advent calender! I definitely don't think 23 is too old for this, and may just have to buy my own as my parents have obviously forgotten this year!)

Anyway I just thought I'd quickly show you two items that I purchased from Asos a couple of days ago. I've been wanting a new purse for ages and had seen a couple that I liked. But when I saw that this one had been reduced from £17 to £11.50 I snapped it up. It has lots of different card compartments which is really good for me as I seem to have accumulated so many cards recently, and always find myself fumbling through my purse trying to find the right one. I think it's sold out on Asos now but you can still find it on the River Island website here.




I also bought this Kath Kidston purse, which I'm going to use to put make-up items in (lipsticks, nail file, hand cream etc) and then pop in my bag, which will hopefully keep things a bit tidier.


I'm hoping to go to a little country house tomorrow, where they do a real 'Victorian Christmas'. There's always a massive fire, people dress up in traditional costume, sing carols and you can make little Christmas decorations like pomanders. I missed going last year, so I'm really looking forward to it this year. I'll try and take some pictures for you all.

What are you doing this weekend? Anything Christmassy?
