ASOS sale bargains

*This post includes affiliate links

Feeling super cute with my new high tops and slouchy glitter socks! I got these in the ASOS sale. The high tops are silver with a metallic, holographic finish. The look so shimmery in the sunlight! They work great with jeans and leggings, but I love wearing mine with dresses. Totally makes me feel like a space princess!
The slouch socks are glittery, soft, and again look great with a dress. I'm wearing mine pulled down here but these are long enough to go up to the knee.

Have any of you found some great buys in the ASOS sale? Let me know in the comments section below!

Our favourite family Christmas films

*This post includes affiliate links

Here is our list of Christmas films that we absolutely love! In no particular order as it is so hard to choose a favourite. These are our family favourites that are great for us to watch with Dylan and Evie.

  Arthur Christmas
A heartwarming tale of Santa's second son Arthur, trying to deliver a toy to a child that has been missed on Christmas Eve. Produced by Aardman Animations, this film has it all. It's fun, it's got moments of realness in the way families interact, and it's such a warm story. All four of us love this film and we often watch it throughout the year!

Jingle All The Way
I remember watching this as a child and finding it great fun. This stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. Lots of mishaps and chaos as Arnie's character rushes to find his child the one toy he really wants on Christmas Eve.

Just has to be watched every Christmas doesn't it? This is a rare gem for us as it's a cheesy Christmas film that even my husband will watch and enjoy thank to Will Ferrell's role as Buddy the Elf.

 The Gruffalo
Dylan and Evelyn still love this. It's cosy and relaxing and great for before bedtime.

The Snowman and the Snowdog
Another one that's relaxing and fit for before bedtime calming down time. A great sequel to the original Snowman, this is the story about how a young child's snowman and snow dog come to life. I personally prefer The Snowman, but Dylan and Evie love this one.

What are your favourite family friendly Christmas films?

A photo post- December 6th 2016

 I've not been feeling well the past few days, so I thought to cheer myself up I'd post some photos of the past few weeks when I've had fun dressing up!

Pick n Melt review

 *This item was sent to me to review, but all of my opinions are my own

Two of my favourite things are Christmas and candles, so I was more than pleased to receive a Christmas Gift Set from Pick n Melt. This pack includes a wax warmer, and 2 bags of the following Christmas scents; Christmas Time, Christmas Spice, Robin Red Breast, Cocoa & Log Fire, Frankincense & Myrrh, Mistletoe & Wine, Festive Tree, and Snow. This gift pack costs £12 and would make a great gift!

I have so far melted Festive Tree. It has really made my entire living room smell like Christmas. You'd be forgiven for thinking my plastic Christmas tree is real whilst I have this scent melting away!

Pick n Melt also offer a wax melt subscription service, where you can receive 18 small bags in your choice of 6 scents for just £8.00 a month. You can also get 30 small bags in a choice of 10 scents, for £12.00 a month. Such a great deal!
