Treat yourself in the lead up to Christmas

- Make sure your cupboards are stocked with Mince pies:



-Treat yourself to a gorgeous Christmas book (I read this last year and loved it so much, i'm reading it again now)




- This shower gel smells like Christmas to me:




-Get out your hot water bottle ready for chilly nights:




- Fill your magazine rack with as many Christmas mags as you can squeeze in:




- Treat yourself to a few new decorations - i couldn't resist this pink deer from B&Q:

Oh I definitely need to stock up on mince pies and start making fudge for christmas presents. The cafe I work at is sorting out its christmas menu and I am so excited! I love your russian doll hot water bottle, she's very pretty.

Guess what - before I ordered Twelve Days of Christmas from Amazon, I decided to check out the local charity shops. Lo and behold the third shop I visited had a copy. Just have to finish the CupCake Cafe book and I'm into it. xx

As soon as it hits December 1st I'm right with you on the treats. I just can't bring myself to have a mince pie before December, a little quirk of mine, not many days to go now though, yey! Lolo xx
