I thought I'd put together a little list of some things I've been loving lately.
First up, the arrival of Christmas this week! The Red Cups and Christmas blends are in at Starbucks, which I use as my guide for when I'm allowed to start getting excited and feeling festive. So I took the opportunity to put my tree up! My little living room feels oh-so-cosy with the addition of some fairy lights, and the countdown has officially begun! I also have my eye on this sparkly mug from the new Christmas drinkware colleciton at Starbucks, I can't resist gold glitter at the moment!
Next up is a podcast I stumbled across on instagram, and have found a new favourite blog in the process.
Jess Lively seems to be a very wise lady, writing and speaking about improving oneself by living with intentions to lead the best life possible. Definitely worth a read! She recently interviewed Jen Gotch, of Shop Ban.do, and spoke about careers, finding the right path for you, and relaxation amongst other things, and the whole thing left me feeling inspired and keen to get going. Perfect if you, like me, are a little unsure of what you're doing.
A Beautiful Mess is the first blog I remember reading, and one I have to thank for getting my where I am now. It kindled my love of writing, crafting, and taking pictures, and from there a hobby, which rapidly turned into a passion was born, and it gave me the courage to start my own blog. Watching it grow over how ever many years I've been reading now has been absolutely lovely to see, so I was so excited to see that they've finally launched their own shop! Filled with loveliness and some gorgeous craft essentials, it's pretty much a blogger's dream!
Last, but not least, the wonder and magic that is the John Lewis Christmas advert. I cried, but I bet you did too!
