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?
