Scream! It's the first of December tomorrow!, Christmas month! Wuhu! I do love Christmas but I try not to let myself get so excited about it until it actually reaches December. Although I do feel organised with the xmas shopping early this year, which is a relief.
But before we can move on to Christmassy things on the blog, here is a little re-cap of the month that was November...
Things that made me smile...
« Fireworks « looking round new supermarkets « huge pub dinners « cosy evenings in with a slushy romantic comedy and my latest crochet project « Christmas shopping « new coats « new boots « recognition at work « honeycomb hot chocolate discovery « Meg « days off « the gym « visiting my sister dearest in her new flat « Pinterest secret boards « awesome arena gigs « a little city break with my Mark.
Monthly window shopping...
M&S, 2. These are £14.95 from Ebay. (bargaintastic and will have to be purchased!)They are so pretty! 3. Again £14.95 from Ebay. 4. £59.99 from New Look. I went for Number 1 in the end, I love the little wedge and feel very smart in them.
Cool things I have discovered this month...
this little story about the royal pet graveyard at Sandringham. I am a huge royalist so any royal stories catch my eye but this one is especially nice. I love how The Queen has little gravestones for each of her dogs that have passed away, it is a sad, but sweet story.
If you love The Big Bang Theory like me, watch this vid for a giggle!
New Movies/TV Shows
« I went to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2! I admit it, I have read all the books and seen all the movies and (whisper it) I went to all the midnight screenings! Yeah I'm sad! I did love it all at first and was caught up in the hype. I wasn't so much bothered about this last film, but as I have seen them all so far had to see it. I'm sorry but I cringed quite a lot through most of it, probably won't buy the DVD! « New TV show discovery Emily Owens MD, it's great! It's rather like Ally McBeal or Erica Strange, a neurotic first person female narrative, but she is a very likable character, I'm really enjoying it. « I have mentioned before how much I am LOVING Kirstie's Vintage Home, I do love everything that Kirstie does though! « I rented The Five Year Engagement. Emily Blunt is always fantastic and she makes such a convincing couple with Marshall from HIMYM, great chemistry. Really enjoyed this quirky little film, will be buying to add to my rainy day feel good collection.
New Blog Discoveries...
