Jigsaw Coral Belle Bedding / Deer Makeup Bag /  Looking back, Looking Forward Planner 

It's just a short and sweet post this Monday. As I'm excited that Christmas is just around the corner, Christmas decorations, and shopping are a must! Ok, it's a little early for the tree to go up and to sellotape a festive wreath to the wall, but I'm not surprised to hear many have finished their Christmas shopping already. There are so many wonderful gifts and pretty things in the shops at the moment, where do you begin? This month, I plan to post mini wishlists & gift ideas, as the countdown to Xmas has officially began!
1. So, I have picked the Coral Belle bedding from Jigsaw. This has a contemporary floral print, and is the perfect gift for those who love to snuggle up under a duvet and watch a film (who doesn't enjoy that?).
2. The deer make up bag is so cute, I'm loving everything deer-themed at the moment. I think this would be a lovely gift for my sister, especially if it was filled with mini beauty products. 
3. This charming note book is ideal for those ever growing things-to-do lists!

PS. I really love these braided up-dos, below. I'm hoping after watching a YouTube tutorial or two, I will be able to re create these cute styles myself. I fancy a change, and a new up-do is a start! wish me luck!

  28. Love your blog! Have you had a chance to try the gorgeous plaited up-dos yet? I'm not a real hair whiz so have never tried to be this adventurous with my hair but love how they look... am thinking perhaps I should try to master them for the xmas parties! xx
