Honestly spend 90% of my time in summer just moving from shady tree to shady tree.
I am down to one (1) outstanding Christmas present 🙌 and I know what it's going to be, so I'm counting that as done! An entire week early, you say? Nailed it.
For some reason the world didn't want me to get my nails done...Every obstacle kept jumping in my way...However, I made my appointment(super late🤨) and am pleased with the results...I'm not a pink kinda girl but these are cute!!! Thank God for my nail stylist...She is the cutest!!!❤❤❤#smallpleasures#supercute#jewels
Finally, the results from the third annual #aubreysepicchristmasbake , or otherwise known as the best way to start the last work week before Christmas! 🥳😍🍪 Not gonna lie, ridiculous me had actually planned three more recipes, but I subbed quality time with two of my favourite humans this weekend instead. Clockwise from top left: brookies, rum balls, cranberry pistachio shortbread, spiced cookie butter bars, chocolate sugar cookies, spicy gingerbread cookies, vanilla sugar cookies, and rocky ledge bars. Giddyup.👊
Monday’s over 🙌🏻 but I actually had a fairly good one (although wow how staged was the Love Island Christmas special?!). There’s only a week until Christmas now and I really need to get ready, including doing lots of baking!
No matter what this year dished up for you, the good and the bad... remember to notice the small pleasures. Happy Rainbow umbrellas, sunbeatles singing, cold sweet grapes (seedless) that pop in your mouth, your children's laughter coming across the lagoon... #smallpleasures
I had one goal this weekend. To squeeze as much Christmas as I could into both days. And considering I watched like six festive films, finished our wrapping, wrote cards, inhaled a camembert, two roasts AND a tub of @cadburyuk Heroes, I’d say I did a pretty good job tbh! 🎄🎅🏻
One week till Christmas! I'm so happy because then I'm gonna have 2 weeks off and by then I will need to finish all my deadlines from uni, so I can finally just sleep and watch cheesy Christmas movies. Today though: Math exam. 📚 (send help!)

By the end of the week I will be reunited with this rascal. But there’s plenty to keep me busy until Sunday! This week is all about tying things up and planning for January and on Friday I officially shut down and am off to see Hamilton! Then Saturday is a mini Christmas with Liam, before we head on home to our families on Sunday ready for the big day. How are you spending the last week leading up to Christmas?
I’d totally like to wake up at dawn, grab a cup of coffee, and tiptoe out into this little front-room to enjoy the morning ambience. Because it’s not possible, I’ll simply settle for dreaming about it ☕️
It’s almost time for a new week; the last full one before Christmas. I’m setting some goals now to try to tackle:
- lots of Christmas baking
- wrapping all the presents
- finishing my Christmas shopping 😳
- writing up some book reviews and blog posts
- watching as many films as I can cram in!
What are you planning on doing?
