With Christmas looming quite literally round the corner (it doesn't officially start in our household till my birthday has been - tomorrow if you're wondering!) wishlist posts and post it notes are flying around everywhere at home with a flurry to order in time for that big day. And as usual, I manage to come up with ideas a week or so before Christmas of what I'd quite like - and this time it comes in the form of a watch.
I'm not really one for telling the time on a watch (I guess I'm a little like Joey Essex in that sense) but since Little B had his David Wellington one it's made me think twice about this fashion accessory (that's also pretty handy too!) and with being slightly clueless - I didn't know where to begin looking until I found Nigel O'Hara. They stock a huge variety of watches of all different sorts, which is perfect for somebody like myself who doesn't actually know what they're after (but if you know how terrible my decision making is, then it's not always the easiest!) of both male and female watches. So Little B and I picked out our top favourites, and have sneakily passed these onto our family members starring my most favourite of the Tommy Hilfiger one (it shines beautifully!), along with the other wishlists that we've been compiling in the last week or so.
I think we need to buy a bigger tree for all these presents that we're wishing upon...

White Apple ipad - Available in Argos
Life seems to have gotten to the stage where I'm admitting that there's just not enough hours in the day, and of course with a 9-5 job (actually I start at 8am), moving house and numerous other life related things, blogging has most definitely taken a back seat (we do sincerely apologise for the lack of our sporadic blog posts and not reading yours). And as you'll probably know, I'm not really that much into my modern technology, so carting my 17inch laptop about isn't ideal even from the kitchen to living room .So in fairness when my delightlful postman knocked at the door with this Apple iPad mini I think the first 15 minutes were spent staring at the box unsure what on earth to do with this glamorous paperweight. It was only 6 months ago that I upgraded my Samsung phone which required sending a text to update your Twitter status, let alone be part of the Apple crew.
To be quite honest, if somebody had told me two months ago that I'd have joined the tablet party I would most definitely have laughed in their faces especially considering the amount of laptops I used to break in my youth (not on purpose mind!). But with having this more than just a glamorous paperweight for under a week, it has completely made not only my blog life but daily schedule plan so much easier. The fact I can keep up to date with my emails and reply without adding extra letters into my words is a lifesaver already. And finally being able to catch up on blogs properly, tucked up comfortably in bed makes for a perfect cosy evening in. So now if you don't seem to find me for days, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be hiding under my duvet in a variety of positions with this incredible little tablet (even if I can't figure out how to lock the rotating screen!)

Little B wears: A Boohoo cardigan, Topman tee and jeans and River Island boots.
Just when we think that we're adapting to the weather change and actually wrapping up properly for it we do stupid things like forget our socks with cut out boots. Let me rephrase it, I forget my socks. And funnily enough it's kind of a big deal considering that my sparkly socks go everywhere I do. Like seriously. It's even borderline silly with doing the food shopping tonight and upon spotting a midnight pair of sparkly socks on display, I just couldn't resist. You'd never have thought that a year ago, socks were non existent in my drawer.
And with socks for warmth, it's all about chunky knits for us and this Chiara Fashion one doesn't disappoint. It makes for the perfect casual (and pyjama) knit to snuggle in under my not so warm Winter coat. It's incredibly cosy, so cosy, that I'm pretty sure I caught Little B eyeing it up the other evening..
Although these outfits are a far cry from what we've been sporting this weekend - paint covered joggers and slobby tshirts. But I will admit that it's been nice to get back into my heeled boots for work today - some things just never change (well, I had to after realising that it's not that possible to trim a hedge in heeled shoes!).
The past three days have been filled with pots of paint and a lot of Cif after realising that the house we've just bought is a lot dirtier than we remembered, although somewhat a challenge. It's going to take a little bit of work to make it homely, but I'm sure after some rooting around in boxes for the fairy lights will happen fairly swiftly. For now, I won't pack away those slob clothes just yet but you'll have to get me out of this knit first!
