My week on Instagram

6th January, 2019

Welcome to the week that was. I like to hit pause on everything and just relax and make the most of time with my family at this time of year not surprisingly my Instagram account has been a little quiet.

I think the below photos sum up the last week or so though—just chilling out and enjoying time with my great loves. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things though and seeing what exciting things 2019 has in store. I hope the new year is treating you all well!

Shop

What I’m looking to buy my family this Christmas

5th December, 2016

This is such a great time of year but it can also be quite stressful trying to get my Christmas shopping done amongst all the other things on my to-do list – which is why I’ve learnt to scope out the shops (both in-store and online) ahead of time and make a list of possible gift ideas for my family and friends. I find if I’ve got a shortlist then it helps make getting my shopping done a much more streamlined process. If you’re looking for present ideas then here’s a peek at what I’m considering…. (my family will just have to wait till Christmas morning to see what my final choices were!).

Gifts for her:

It’s fun (sometimes a little dangerous!) shopping for my mum and sister-in-law, Hoda because I always inevitably stumble upon things I end up falling in love with too. I find that beautiful home decor such as great candle or quality towel is a great option as interior decorating is something they’re both really into. That said, they also both love fashion so a nice pair of earrings or cute shoes is always something that will put a smile on their face.

Gifts for him:

Finding gifts for my husband, Luke, brother, Tom and my dad almost always end up falling into the fashion category. I find a great tie or sunglasses is something they’ll be able to get plenty of use out of throughout the year. However I sometimes like to give them something they can wear to death during the summer break such as a pair of shorts or a hat. Fragrances are also ideal and I find it’s something most men don’t tend to buy for themselves so it’s a nice albeit useful surprise.

Gifts for kids: 

Christmas in our family is now all about the kids so it’s always really fun shopping for my girls but also my niece, Rose and nephew, William. I love buying cute clothes for Sophia and Rose but they’re also into their toys so I make sure to try and maintain a balance. As Grace is still a baby I’ll probably end up with something adorable to add to her wardrobe. I find toys are always a winner for my nephew so something he can play with such as a fire engine will be something he’ll enjoy finding under the tree.
