After a rough couple of weeks, things are finally starting to look up in the Little Bird household. I’m flitting off to London for the weekend to eat cupcakes, drink cocktails and dance wildly with my girlfriends but before I go, I thought I’d show you some of the things that are slowly cheering me up, one by one…
Christmas cards from wonderful blog friends. The pug is from Kelly and the Merry Christmas from Ayden. Thanks girls ♥
Dying my hair… myself! It’ll be the first time I’ve ever attempted to dye my own hair but after hearing such good things about the new John Frieda foam, I’m feeling confident!
Upcoming adventures in London town. My girlfriends and I are taking the train down to catch a show, do some shopping and generally enjoy each others’ company.
…and more candles! The candelabra was a charity shop find and the Christmas print candle is from Ikea.
My new camera. It’s a Canon G11, which was recommended by my lovely Twitter family. After seeing it on the high street for just shy of £500, I bagged this nearly-new model on eBay for £270.
My Christmas tree. It’s the first year the Mr and I have had a real tree – I was determined to make the flat as festive as possible after our disappointment with the new house. I bought the handpainted wooden decorations from eBay – £15 for 15 pieces that originated in India. They are the most stunningly beautiful things I’ve ever seen and I could gaze at my tree for hours just studying their intricate patterns. The straw decorations are from Ikea and I used gold tulle ribbon instead of tinsel.
Happy weekend all – tell me, what are your plans?
