Beneath the stars...

Firstly, I wanted to say thank you for your kind words on my last post. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Mine was good, all things considered. Lots of family time, good food and drink. I also got pretty spoilt. Favourite gifts include a sewing machine [my boyfriend broke the rule of buying me a domestic product, but I absolutely love it], a cat print tapestry bag and Marc Jacobs Dot perfume. The majority of my presents were Lush/Yankee/craft/cat/nail art friends/family know me well.

The weather is pretty depressing right now - we had a flood warning on Boxing Day, and when we were out last night the river was so high I was scared I was going to fall in!

Ben and I went sale shopping today. I'm not much of a fan of the sales. I prefer to do my sale shopping online - away from all the rude, pushy people. I got a couple of bits, however only one of them was a sale item. So I may have a look online and see what bargains I can pick up!

Tonight is definitely a night for snuggles under the duvet, a good film and lots of candles burning.



  1. Your presents sound lovely, and I can't resist fairy lights and candles at this time of year! xo

  2. Your night tonight sounds just like mine is going to be!


  3. I've been meaning to get lights to wrap around my bed for ages, yours looks amazing x

  4. Love the lights around your bed :)
    Making me regret buying a black leather bed now!

  5. your bed looks really cosy :) Sounds like you got some great gifts, I love Dot! x
