Christmas presents can be so hard to pick for people, especially if they are fussy or people you rarely see. I find it easier to pick for my brother and parents as they drop hints throughout the autumn months, but my Nan is so hard to buy for. Since she has started having anxiety issues she doesn’t drink, I used to always get her a bottle of wine but now I struggle to think of something. So I thought about what would make her happy and what could make a Nan happier than seeing pictures of the entire family?

The worst part about Uni? Definitely the part where I didn't have a tv and ended up missing THREE YEARS worth of I'm a Celebrity. Don't even get me started. Thankfully I got to watch last years and here we are again. I don't really care for the X Factor so I'm a Celebrity really is my Christmas countdown. I know when it ends it's TIME TO PUT UP THE CHRISTMAS TREE.

I think this might be the first time I've referred to myself as a woman rather than a girl, but hey being 23 has brought all sorts of things to light. I was driving home from work thinking how much it can suck to be a woman. I'm sure it sucks to be a man sometimes too but yano, I'm a woman and I like to moan. So what better way to get through this than to verbally and virtually write about it?
- If I don't start with this then I don't know who will read this post or even believe me, cystitis. Cystitis. Even the word makes me want to clench my legs together and down a litre of cranberry juice. If you haven't had it then wow you are lucky. I had it so bad I needed to pee every 2 seconds, every time I went for a wee I had to hold onto the railings nearby and scream, oh yeah and only peed blood not urine. I'd like to say I've learned many lessons in my twenties and how not to get cystitis is probably my only accomplishment. 3 years and counting bitches.

I'm also not saying hey buy ALL of your Christmas presents from small shops because even I have bought some stuff from retail chain shops already. I'm just saying please have a little think about what you're buying, could you help a small Etsy shop this Christmas rather than a massive chain?

Yep, it's hit November so you know wha that means.. blaady Christmas. Yep, I said the C word. I don't care how premature my Christmas-sy mood is because when you're an online shop owner and you start designing or planning for Christmas in Summer then really, I've been preparing for this moment for months. So here is my first Christmas post and it will not be the last, I promise.
This post is in collaboration with Debenhams and feature all the lovely gifts from their non-Christmas and Christmas range. If you need a bit of help picking Christmas gifts for your sister, Mum or even a friend I have picked some of my favourite products from Debenhams for this Christmas. The wonderful Debenhams gave myself and a friend, Kayleigh, a gift card to try and find stunning presents that people might enjoy this Winter. So take a peek at my guide.

I don't know what's funnier, the fact that I ran a half marathon or that I look happy about running up a hill. Either way I ran the Stroud Half Marathon last weekend and I think it's one of my greatest achievements to date. I'm not much of a long-distance runner, I just enjoy running the odd 3 or 4 miles in the week. Exercise keeps me sane and keeps my stress levels down.

I used to always be a beach holiday kind of person. Wake up, have some breakfast then it’s straight to the pool or beach until the evening. It is so lovely to read as many books as physically possible in that little week away. However as I am getting older I’m beginning to understand how great it is to go to a City and explore the culture and surroundings. The last time I visited Paris was when I was quite young.. and all I really cared about was going to Disneyland haha. I’ve persuaded Charlie to go away with me later this year to visit a City and hey, visit the Christmas Markets (aka German beer tent?).

The only type of delivery I ever want coming to my door again is the delicious fruit and veg, boxed to perfection. Going through these boxes with my mum may have been similar to, if not better, than Christmas. If opening a box of veg does not make your heart flutter then did you really go to Uni and live off pesto cheesey pasta for 3 years? Because I will never go back. Moving on, opening this beauty from Riverford Organic Farmers was the icing on the top of my Wine Thursday cake.
