It's been a while since I've posted a haul up on my blog, purely just because I've not done any purchasing worth mentioning. Just little bits and bobs here and there. I've been picking up bits and pieces while completing my Christmas shopping.
I picked up some some autumn/winter accessories for my room; I thought that it would be nice to have some seasonality to my space. I picked up this super adorable little glass tray to place on my desk. It's back and grey with a picture of a little Scottish squirrel on it. I just wanted to go 'aww' when I seen it. I also picked up a small set of battery operated Christmas lights. I thought they'd be nice draped across the back of my desk. Their multi-coloured and feel super festive! I popped into my local Yankee Candle store and picked up a little volitive angle holder, which is crackle glass and glitter trickling down like icicles.
I also picked up seven little volitive to accompany it. They were:Christmas Cookie, Angel's Wings, White Christmas, Balsam & Cedar, Season of Peace, Merry Marshmallow, and Pomegranate Cider. All I consider very festive scents! I also picked up a large jar Cranberry Ice and I am still waiting on a large jar Candy Cane Lane being delivered. I am taking my Christmas candles very seriously this year.
I picked up a few clothing bits and pieces. First you may have already seen; it's my Christmas patterned swing dress. I have had so many compliments on it already and people asking me where I bought it. I thought I'd go down a different route than the traditional jumper this year. I have been a big fan of roll-neck tops and jumpers this year. I picked up a nick Khaki ribbed roll-neck top, which I find so comfortable as it does not cling like I thought that it would. The next was a super fluffy and soft faux 'sheepskin' gillet. It's similar to like Ugg boots, so it has the white fluffy innards and the soft touch outer material. Last but not least was a simple grey ribbed jumper. It's quite plain and basic, but it has little black patches on the elbows.
My last purchase was CANDY CANES! It's not Christmas in my house without candy canes.
Am I the only one who goes gift shopping and comes away with loads of stuff for themselves?
