Around this time of year, we all start reflecting on the past year and everything that has gone on. But mainly, we start thinking ahead to next year and what we’d like to change. With 2016 fast approaching – seriously, how crazy is that? – I began wondering why it is we are so quick to pick what we want to be different. Which is why I decided to set you all – and myself too – a challenge.

When deciding what post I wanted to write this week, I couldn’t quite decide how to go about it. I’ve been wanted to talk about several different aspects of my plans for Christmas time – from eating to reading – and while many people have dedicated specific posts to these types of activities, I decided in the end to clump it all together in a bid to get people excited for all the somewhat hedonistic period where we all like to let go.

Naturally, as a blogger it’s really nice being sent things. But what’s even better is when your sent things by a brand that use and enjoy anyway. This is why I was so thrilled when a package from The Body Shop landed on my doorstep. I’ve only been blogging for about six months, so stuff like that is very exciting for me! I use both the Bodyshop instablur primer and BB cream consistently and it’s always one of the first places I head to for gifts at Christmas time as there are usually lots of great offers and options people are bound to love!

No longer can you tell me it’s too early for Christmas. You can’t switch on the TV without their being adverts luring you with food you can’t wait to fill up on or products you’ve scrawled on your Christmas list. While it’s only recently I’ve been feeling fully Christmassy, I’ve been keeping my eye out for anything worth nabbing and storing away ready for December and now I’m ready to show you my little collection!

This week, we have been in our first home together for one whole month. I’ll be honest, it whizzed by as there was just so much going on including getting our puppy, Luna (meet her here!). It’s been a massive life change and I’ve already learnt so much in the four weeks we have been here. I think I’ve definitely changed for the better though, I feel like I’m less selfish as I have others (boyfriend + dog!) to consider. I spend less time on the internet (though maybe that’s because we have none…) and more time appreciating just ‘being.’

With this though, I have also lost lay ins, being able to starfish alone in my bed and not having to share my chocolate. The truth is though , I don’t actually think I mind so much.

Anyway being the nosy bugger I am, I personally love taking a look into people’s homes so thought I’d give you the chance to have a little look around my kitchen and the bits we’ve picked up.
