Another Monday and just a few days until Christmas – how are we all doing? With most of my Christmas shopping done I have one more present to buy and it is a tricky one so I will get on with this post and crack on with my shopping!
I’m almost finished with this audio book with about one hour to go. If you have read or listened to this book I would love to hear what you think.
There are some great reviews out there – check them out:
Kevin @ I Heart Chick Lit
Tara @ Running ‘n’ Reading
Anna @ Diary of an Eccentric
I am hoping to finish listening to this book mid-week so I can crack on with something else very important that I want to read more than having to read! A bit of a secret but I’m hoping all will be revealed soon!
Things are great on the living front at the moment – well apart from my split location. Between mine and himself I feel like I’m being spread a little thin on the ground but I am sure it will pass. Work is hard but as I am off for the Christmas period I can’t really complain.
Over the past couple of weeks I have picked up a few new bedding sets and this one is just so cute.
Don’t ya think?!
As I have very sensitive skin I have to keep my make up brushes clean and do it as often as possible without ruining them. As I do not wear make up every day I clean my brushes every two weeks and this week I managed to get a snap of my squeaky clean brushes.
Himself and I popped over to a friend’s house on Sunday and found this in their bathroom and just had to snap it. At this current moment in time I am incredibly happy and this caption is exactly how I feel so why not ‘spread the love’ so to speak.
My skin has really been giving me problems lately which is most likely due to the crazy weather changes. From the bitter cold outside going to the warmth of inside (my house is like the tropics!) my skin flares up and I find my skin reacting like crazy. My medicine cabinet seems to have more anti-histamine in it than the regular hay fever season and it is truly annoying.
As I mentioned last week this has been a staple in my daily routine as it really has saved my skin from falling off like a snake. Disgusting but true!
With House of Fraser throwing such heavy discounts around before Christmas I thought it would only be right to treat myself and as I use this on a regular basis I am extremely glad for the top up.
What are you using to keep your skin smooth in such harsh weather.
What have you been up to this week?
As we approach Christmas at work my night shifts are hitting me hard and my sleep even harder. After my first night shift of the week last night I am feeling absolutely rotten and extremely tired. Today’s Blogmas is about the importance of SLEEP! I am going to demonstrate how important it is by going to bed NOW!
Comments are welcome and please do check out my recent posts from Blogmas and before and I will reply when my night shifts have finished.
My bed really is calling me!

How Did I Get On?
Still working on the Christmas gift baskets for our mothers however it is taking longer than I anticipated due to lack of time to go out and shop for the contents. Bit by bit I am getting there – it will happen. On the wrapping side of things the other day I got into a bit of a wrapping frenzy put my audio book on and got cracking. With only 3 more presents to wrap and a couple more to buy I am pretty much all sorted.
One thing I do regret this year is not planning ahead enough to participate in The Broke & The Bookish Secret Santa – such a shame but next year will be a good one! (Not wishing the time away of course!).
Commenting has not been my strong point this week but I have visited almost 10 new blogs and let me tell you there are some awesome bloggers out there – as if you didn’t already know.
