It’s mostly photos in my blog this week… a quick fire round-up of little bits and pieces from life outside and inside work! Here we go…
At home the Christmas tree is up (a Santa’s Best one I bought at QVC when it was a Today’s Special Value offer a few months ago; I thought our new house deserved a new tree for our first festive season in it!) and I’m loving it. I’ve actually put FOUR trees up around the place, but only one big one! And despite not really being a pink girl when it comes to fashion, I have a pink colour scheme going on this year and I rather like it…
My top Christmas fashion pick this year is definitely my Ruth Langsford blazer with the beaded lapels. I’ve worn it on air a couple of times already and will be wearing it to events outside of work too… it’s FABULOUS!
And to balance the over-indulgence to come, I’m still running my way through December, despite finishing my 1,000 mile charity challenge back in November. At the weekend I ran 10km at an event called “The Race Before Christmas” which was fun (also a good excuse to wear my 1,000 miles t-shirt!).
At work, I’ve spotted another couple of great deals for you if you still need gift ideas. Decleor’s big Christmas offer is a four-piece skincare collection, on air on Saturday 14th but available to order in advance HERE now.
It’s perfect for this colder weather (really hydrating) and contains some familiar products with new names! We’ve got White Magnolia Oil Serum (previously known as Magnolia Aromessence) , Lavender Fine Oil Serum (was Lavendula Iris Aromessence), Neroli Bigarade Rich Cream (was Hydra Floral Everfresh Rich Cream) and Neroli Bigarade Night Balm (was Neroli Amara Night Balm). I just love Decleor’s oils so this is right up my street. It also comes in a gorgeous gift box, in case you can bear to part with it.
And we’ve also got a great offer from Radley London on the 18th. It’s the Crown Hill Large Flapover Matinee leather purse in a lovely gift box (yay, flapover! One of my favourite words!). There’s a choice of six colours (I’ve been lent the Blue Sapphire to show you but there’s also Red, Dove Grey, Dark Green, Merlot and Black) and inside the flap you’ll find a message: “I Love Today”, a reminder maybe to try to live in the moment and try to find something good in every day, no matter how difficult it might be sometimes. Our last QVC shopping day for pre-Christmas delivery is the 20th so this sneaks in nicely ahead of that!
Even though it’s a time tinged with sadness when I think of loved ones who can’t be here to share it, I do adore Christmas, but if it’s a sad or lonely time for you (I’m so sorry), or just something you don’t celebrate, hang tight… only a couple of weeks to go before it’s behind us again.
