Christmas is my favourite time of year and it has been the first week this week so I thought I would share what I have been getting up to.
There was sales on last weekend due to black Friday which a lot of stores changed it to cyber weekend to carry the sales on until Monday. I only made one purchase, a new winter duffle coat from Warehouse its so warm and the dark green colour makes it look really festive. I will try to get a picture up of it at some point. Im happy I got it as its gone soo cold in the UK now. That's all I got really there was no way I was venturing to the shops I saw on the news how busy and crowded it was to I stuck to the internet.
During the week I have been looking for inspiration on the internet for gift ideas, I did have an idea what I wanted to get people so I just made sure I knew which shops had the best for the best price. I like to write lists and make sure I know what I want to get, I hate not feeling organised :)
It wouldn't be Christmas either without visiting a Christmas market! Yesterday I went to Birmingham to the Christmas market and it was so fun and festive! Birmingham is one of my favourite ones to visit, as its so close to the Bullring you can also do a spot of shopping too! It was all lit up so pretty we had a really nice time, and I ate so much yummy food I could barely move when I got home. They definitely get you in the charismas spirit and its something all the family can enjoy.
Today I was on a mission to get some Christmas shopping done! Even though I hate busy shops and crowds, I do like to see what im purchasing in person, rather than shopping on the internet. So me and my mum got up really early and headed to town to get some done! I managed to do more than half my shopping, there was so many really nice gift sets and stocking fillers. Debenhams and boots were my favourite for gift sets and quirky gifts they had some really good ideas, Although boots had ran out of a few thing (or not replenished stock) which was a bit disappointing for a Saturday morning. I also did really well with vouchers and card points. I always try and save up points and vouchers for Christmas, and they have saved me so much money today!
So that is my week so far, I haven't stopped running around all day but I feel so much more organised now! After fitting in the weekly food shop on the way home I had a huge mug of tea, ate lots of chocolate cookies and caught up on Made In Chelsea! Please share your blogmas posts too!
