BLOGMAS DAY 23: Wrapping Present Junk Style.

Firstly I had all of these things nearby and ready: (and scissors ofc)
1.) Sellotape
2.) Gift tags
3.) wrapping paper and parcel paper
4.) Gift bags
5.) A paper gift bag
6.) wine bags
7.) paper bows
8.) bubble wrap

 I also had some bakers twine to tie up all the presents in a traditional cute way ;) 


I always like to wrap glass objects in bubble wrap just to be sure ;)


And the small gift bags I use to throw bits and bobs in. For example I had some free tea samples given to me, so I split them up between my family and put them in the bags.
Now these next few pictures show how I wrap a present. For if anyone doesn't know? as long as it's a nightmare to get into, you're doing well at wrapping ;)




This present turned out the best! Fortunately it's going to Sean's family too! :D

I spent 3 hours straight of wrapping these two pictures are the result. 


I was watching Home Alone 2 at the same time though ;)

hope this is helpful!

BLOGMAS DAY 20+21+22: Catch Up

SO I have let the team down on blogging, I did have a day feeling crap, followed by a day at Sean's house. So I'm sorry for not posting. I have two posts tonight and tomorrow. This will be my final Blogmas post (tomorrow). I'm proud of how much of Blogmas I managed to do. I'm also so thankful to be home and with my family. I missed them more than I like to let on in Southampton. So I thought I would catch you all up on what I've been doing and also show you the beauty of my home. 


Small shopping trip to Oxford, in the very early morning. Such busy! Great to be surrounded by all the nice buildings again!


Gift fondling under the tree. (My favourite Christmas Hobby)


Me and my sister made a WooWoo Cocktail:
1 shot vodka
1 shot peach schnapps
top up with cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime. + lime slice to garnish.

mmm


Shopping trip number 2 in Oxford - with Sean this time. urgh this place is so beautiful! trying to buy birthday presents for people in January :P! (ahead of the game ;) )


The covered market in Oxford, an old fashioned butcher, organic turkeys strung up to the ceiling! Ready for customers to pick, weirdest sight I've seen for a while!


Hope you guys enjoy the insight into my life ;)
Just about to put a post up on how I wrapped my presents!

2 more days :O! bloody flown past!

BLOGMAS DAY 19: Christmas Tree O Christmas Treee

HOW TO TACK-IFY YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE IN 3 EASY STEPS:
STEP 1:
THROW SOME  ALL OF THE LIGHTS ON: 


STEP 2: ADD TINSEL - THIS STUFF MAKES ANY TREE LOOK FABULOUSLY TACKY.
              BE SURE TO ADD A LOT AS SEEN BELOW.

STEP 3: THROW THE REST OF THE CRAP ON. YES, A DECORATION SHOULD BE ON EVERY BRANCH. 


Yes I am taking the piss, so don't take this literally ;) 
Me and my sister decided this year to throw all the decorations we have on the tree. It ended up looking like the party tree. (Which is good - but it just looks dreadful) Most my family kick off when not all the decorations are used so this mess was done to put everyone happy ;) (except my eyes)

6 days. Crazy how fast it's gone!

BLOGMAS DAY 15: Christmas Decor Inspiration

BLOGMAS DAY 14: Christmas Party Part 1




Morag got drunk, missed a blogmas upload, and is now hating Monday. 
I should not have drank so much. Bad Morag. 

In other news, I'm very sorry I missed a day, hence why you will be getting two today :) I didn't think I would be crashing at my friends house... but I was wrong. 
So yesterday was pretty damn good :) It was my friend group in Southampton's Christmas Party.
It started off with me and my best friend Holly switching gifts - she spoilt me rotten! Urban Outfitters bag, a gorgeous dress, candles and a MINK PINK dress :D! (and a cocktail book which I don't want to see for a while) 
We then had a gorgeous roast gammon as our Christmas meal and it was just nice to be merry around the ones I love here before trudging back to Oxford :) 

Happy Monday :) 

PS cutest picture I have yet of Sean :P

BLOGMAS DAY 8: GIFT GUIDE FOR HER UNDER £20.


(Number 6. has gone up in price since I last checked and is now £20.31, apologies) 

So some of you might have thought that a gift guide under £5 is a bit tight, therefore both me and Sean created another gift guide again for under £20... (His one is tomorrow) Just some more ideas for presents. :) 

I feel like I should be doing work but I am currently too in the Christmas spirit to focus... anyone else having that problem?

Probably just me ;) 

Happy Monday

BLOGMAS DAY 6: MY CHRISTMAS WANTLIST:



8.) Urbanears

Me againnnn ;)!!!!

Sadly I already pretty much know what I am getting for Christmas as I have decided to build my own two screen desktop set up. So most of my Christmas presents are computer parts. Don't get me wrong. I'm excited to get them :P! (Release the nerd in me) HOWEVER I will be saving my own monies up for these other beauties in the future. 

I have always wanted to read it by Alexa Chung. It's had so many good reviews! 
As for my cute heart tray, some of you may have seen that in my homeware wants. I always eat in my bedroom! Although next year I will be eating in a living room I still want trays, they'll be so handy and I will always need them. 
As for all the Lush stuff.. who doesn't love a good relax with some nice products?
For the handbag, my favourite brown bag strap has recently broke :( I really love the long strap on bags too, so I really want a replacement :P
Now paper straws is a funny one ;) but I bloody love them! They're so cheap too!
BONBON by Viktor Rolf is the sweetest and best perfume to ever touch my skin (Apart from Love by Chloé) It has a really girly smell to it, and IT STAYS ON MY SKIN ALL DAY! had so many compliments when I wore it (My sister gave me the tester sample for it)
As for Urbanears I think these are the coolest looking headphones. They do such nice colours too. 
Finally I love the idea of storing all my lip products on show, so I can see them all!

Hope you enjoyed this post - 
These might also make great presents for other people :)

Thank God it's still the weekend :)! So much to do!

BLOGMAS DAY 5: CHRISTMAS PARTY IDEAS







Personal favourite would be the Missguided one, Nothing I love more than hiding my massive bloated belly after a Christmas meal in a nice shift dress. Hope these were useful, they're all reasonably priced. The main thing with a Christmas party is to have fun, so why not make your dress fun too? ;) 

20 days left until Christmas ahhh :D
