New things Im lovin'...
#1 Tae Bo, this maybe premature as Ive only been to one class (yesterday) & it killed me but it was so much fun I think Ive finally found an exercise class that I enjoy.
#2 The Hunger Games books... Im currently powering through the 3rd one.. totally addicted.
#3 Pink's new album, dont think it has one bad song.
#4 M&S's non alcoholic mulled wine. loved it last xmas and love it this year still.

New items...

New to me this old picnic hamper was my dads it now takes pride of place in my bedroom filled with my wedding inspiration. Hat with giant pompom is from H&M. Shoes c/o Zalando seemed to pretty to be hidden away.

Blog, Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho of the popular (and one of my personal favourite) blog Oh Joy!
Which is finally available on Amazon UK & Urban Outfitter stores.
Macaroons from the Cupcake Cafe, Instagram photos I had printed here, catching up on my back issues of Gathered on my ipad a great wee crafting digital mag by Mollie Makes. New notebook for wedding ideas, Thuderstorm blue nail polish by No7 & a glitter sequin polish. The science of sleep on dvd, cant wait to watch this with Dave think it would be our kinda film. Another H&M hat.

If you didnt know already, I am massive Christmas fan. I love it all, getting the tree which has to be real in my book, the films, the cheesey songs. But most importantly I love giving presents that I think my loved ones will really love and enjoy. Part of that is wrapping them that they look there best.
One year I attached massive bows & candy canes to each one, then another year I made all handmade cards & wrapped them in brown paper with gold ribbons. This year I picked up this selection of papers in red & whites with mini sleigh bells to attach & bakers twine! (all items from M&S)
