TIME TO GET FESTIVE

Are you ‘Christmassing’ yet!?
In fact, what IS ‘Christmassing’?… It’s when you get that warm fuzziness inside on the lead up to Christmas Day. It’s making the most of every single second in the build up, enjoying Christmas traditions, events, food and the general magic!
In short – ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…!’
Intu Chapelfield asked me to #GETCHRISTMASSING and hit the Norwich shopping centre for a browse around the shops and food court. Shopping and Christmas are firm favourites in my mind so I grabbed the camera and headed into the city. I have also made a Christmassing video which is linked below for you.
First stop was Pret for a festive snack and brew to enjoy whilst I strolled around and took in the festive sights. Christmas is a huge deal to me. No real reason for it, I’m just a big kid when it comes to the December and therefore adopt the perfect Christmassing buzz in the lead up.
First up on my list was a new ‘going out’ coat. It’s most certainly too cold now for a leather jacket in the evenings and as I am creeping into a more mature age in my life I need to feel warm and cosy between cocktail stops.
I have actually brought this coat several times recently and then taken it back because I wasn’t 100% sold on it – AKA too scared to take the plunge to wear it out in public, coat confidence issues…
This time however H&M have had a final sale out of me, especially as they had 25% off using their H&M Club app – Get signed up to this guys, so many deals to be had!
Now… I’m going to be honest here, this was NOT on the agenda at all. It took all of around 6 minutes in total from this Ted Baker bag to catch my eye and make it’s way into my possession. Come on look at it! The classic staple black over the body, handled bag. This will take me right through into spring next year and can dress any outfit up to glam status. By far the best thing I have purchased in December – So far…
You may or may not know, we have recently brought our first home and have spent some time getting used to DIY whilst decorating the living room. A new decoration for the tree was mostly definitely in order whilst in Intu Chapelfield as we decided for the first time to buy a real tree – And a HUGE one at that!
House of Fraser was where I found this beautiful gold flamingo. He fits into the look and feel of our living room perfectly and was only £6!
Enjoy December and let me know how you’ll be Christmassing this year with the hashtag #GETCHRISTMASSING. Can’t wait to see your festive moments!
