Little Things

1 December 2013

Okay firstly thank you to people who have tagged/nominated me for posts, I will do them asap I just want to do this post first because I've had the picture for ages and I finally need to put them to use!

This isn't really a October favourites or anything it's just little things that I'm loving really!

Firstly this cute little keyring my friend got me from her holiday in Turket, I love the colours and the beads at the end but this photo doesn't do it justice! Lord only knows what I was thinking when I done the editing, oh god it looks terrible! But yeah I think it's a really cute key chain and I dont want to put it on my keys because its so pretty! I want to hang it somewhere in my room to be honest, but I don't really own any hanging surfaces!

I'm also really loving this army jacket, but as it gets colder I have to wear it less and less! It's annoying though, because it's not mine it's actually my sisters and she's had it for ages but never wears it anymore, I think the last time she wore it was last years summer!? Yet I still have to beg her to let me wear it and then when she wants to wear something of mine she just takes it, doesnt ask and usually gets her make up all over it and as soon as I mention it to her she'll bring up the one time I took this jacket without asking and she will be so rude and horrible and argh sorry for the rant it's just so annoying having a sister who never wears half her clothes bUT GOD FORBID I BORROW THEM AND GOD FORBID SHE ACTUALLY ASK TO BORROW MY CLOTHES
woah sorry about that but yeah I love this jacket and it goes with basically anything so it's fab really!

Usually I'm a Starbucks kind of girl and I still have so many of their Christmas drinks I need to try and the other when I went in I though I would try something different. It was buy one Christmas special drink get another free so me and my friend thought we would do that but they didn't have the one I wanted, because the Starbucks in the shopping center I go to is pretty crap, but yeah we decided to get the Gingerbread Spiced Latte and she told me it tasted like gingerbread men, so I was all excited. IT DID NOT TASTE LIKE GINGERBREAD MEN AND I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. I don't like coffee either but I thought I was starting to like it more, evidently not though! It was also super disappointing because we got a large so I was all excited to drink my gingerbread men tasting drink with the Christmas Starbucks cup, but no. I did not enjoy it and it left a horrible taste in my mouth. I personally would not recommend but it depends if you like coffee and ginger really! I really want to try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate I think its called? And the orange mocha because although I don't like coffee, I do like mocha's!
Please tell me in the comments below if they're nice though, I don't want to go through that again!
But back to Costa...
I decided to get a White Hot Chocolate Christmas special in Costa and it was delicious! It was sweet and ohh just so lovely, and the cups are adorable too!

Please excuse my mess of a bedroom, but I've been meaning to show you these for ages! These are like fluffy/fleecy pajama bottoms which you can get from Primark and they are so nice. They are cosy and comfortable and they have elastic at the bottom which helps to trap the heat, so perfect for colder nights! When I saw my friend in these I was like what they must feel horrible and I thought they would be all horrible to wear, but they're not! They're so comfy and awh I love them, I have no idea how I survived before! I only have one pair though and I want like 678 more, but me and my mum are on lock down till Christmas to buy more things! (Speaking of which I must do my Christmas list soon, I keep on meaning to but find myself getting distracted!)

Now I got this ages ago, but as my room has got tidier (it's really messy now again, I tidied my room and it was so lovely and clean the other day but earlier I was looking for something and BAM it's a tip again!) But yeah, it's just a really cute little box I think, quite rustic/ vintage and it's from eBay, there's a little mirror inside and like a velvet deep blue lining, I don't know why I didn't take a picture because the way I'm explaining it doesn't give it the complete justice! I don't really know what to put in it either, I just have some hairbands and stuff in there at the minute, it's so cute though and I love it.

This is my mum scarf, but unlike my sister, she doesn't have a problem with sharing! It's a navy blue and the little festive pattern at the bottom. I have a scarf from Topshop as well which is cream which is really good at keeping you warm and is cute, but recently I'm really loving this scarf, doesn't keep you as warm as my Topshop one, but it does a fab job anyway and I love it! I think it's from Primark or Topman, I'm not completely sure, most likely Primark.

Also, of course, I know it's only been the first day of December, but I literally spend the whole month of September through to December waiting for Christmas and you know, once you whip out the Advent Calender it's almost time!:) I always want like a princess or like a cutesy little advent calender, but they always have such horrible chocolate! Last year I remember my sister was home and I forced my mum to get me a Princess one, but I knew the chocolate was going to be horrible, so I swapped mine with my sisters before she got home so I could have the nice chocolate instead, she didn't really care though, she hardly ate hers! I don't understand how people can just miss a day then have like two chocolates the next day, if I miss out a chocolate I will think about it the whole day and will have to have it as soon as I get home! I always want to be able to look at and be like 'Oh woops I missed out four days, guess it means I have to have four today!' But I just can't do it! I also can't eat more the right amount, like skip ahead and eat all 24 chocolates because you just cant do that! Ahaha, anyway I got a Cadbury's one, because you can't go wrong with that chocolate, and it's a make a wish one, so 10% of their profits go the make a wish charity which makes me happy :)

Ohhh cheeky lil selfie

I also got a henna yesterday at my friends old school Christmas fair. They were all so pretty and I just couldn't decide which one to get, but I chose this one in the end and part of me wishes I could have go it on the other side, but I think it looks really nice on my palm and I can easily hide. It's the first ever time I got henna and I love it so much, I think it's so beautiful and people who can do henna are so talented, if I were to try it, it would just look like a massive brown blob on someones hand! These people are so talented, also next weekend I can get more henna, since there's like a yoga thing where my dad teaches and they will be doing henna, I can't wait, honestly I think I'm becoming addicted! If you get the opportunity to get henna, do it! You will love it, although I keep saying quick glimpses of my hand I'm thinking 'OH GOD WHATS HAPPENED TO MY HAND?!' Then I remember ahahaha

Let me know in the comments about Christmas Specials in Starbucks and nay you recommend! Have you ever got henna? Let me know or recommend things! I will try and post soon and do one of these tags, thanks for reading!:)xo


  1. Woo I have that advent calendar too! I'd been wanting to try the ginger lattes as I love gingerbread, but don't like coffee.. I got told they don't taste of coffee at all but now you've got me all scared :P Rachel xx

    1. I looooove this advent calender :) And well I think it tasted a lot like coffee but maybe because I'm very sensitive to the taste?? I don't really know, I don't reccommend it but maybe have a sip of your friends or something OR ASK FOR A TASTER BC I DIDNT REALISE YOU COULD DO THAT BUT NOW I KNOW and yeah :') xxxx

  2. great post. would you like to follow eachother?

  3. What's a sister for? Borrowing clothes! Ahh, if I were in your place, I would "borrow"(till forever) that army jacket as well. It looks really nice with Chanel's logo on the back. I also love the pijama bottoms, they look all lovely with those hearth on and kinda of a Christmassy print.
