Last Minute Gift Ideas Part 1

If you're like me, you've done little or no Christmas shopping yet. Feat not! There are a few places you can go to check out, which will definitely help out.

Debenhams
Debenhams is the place to go for any girls in your life. There is a huge variety of beauty products particularly, and I really love the selection. The make up palettes are my favourite. Whether you're looking for something for that special someone, or some stocking fillers, Debenhams Beauty Department is your saviour.

Such and Such
Such and Such has fantastic array of unique gifts that are amazing. From homeware to quirky furniture, there are some lovely gift ideas available. This indoor swing is my favourite thing on hte whole site. I've literally never wanted anything more than I want this swing. I'm definitely going to have to get it for myself.

RedDog Bags
I recently came across RedDog and they have some lovely pieces, with the bagpod being a particular winner. It'll make a great gift too. It has a lot of different pockets and compartments so you can fit a lot of different things in. If you're like me, and carry everything around with you, you'll need an organised bag to find everything. It comes in different colours and the Italian leather gives it a luxurious feel.

Goldsmiths
Jewellery is always a winner as a present and Goldsmiths has a great variety. They have everything from subtle glamorous pieces to fun bits for everyday wear. These earrings are gorgeous, and I am massively in love with the watches. Olivia Burton and Skagen watches are absolutely wonderful.

Early Christmas Present with HP

I do love my technology. On a weekend, while in bed, you'll often see me surrounded by my laptop, camera, phone and Kindle, doing various different activities on each one, from blogging to playing games and watching Netflix.

My HP Notebook has been my trusted laptop for quite a few years now. It's never let me down and it's so lightweight that it makes travelling with it easy.
But I have known I've needed an upgrade and sleeker model for quite some time, and it was always going to be another HP.

I was very kindly given a stunning new HP Envy x2 and I am absolutely smitten. I'm in the process of moving everything over from my old laptop, and this one has been wonderful to have in my life.

It's not that big and is so lightweight which makes it perfect for blogging while wandering around the house, which is what I often do. The detachable screen is also amazing. It turns the laptop into just a tablet and works well as both.

Having a laptop and tablet in one really makes life easier. It means that I have everything in one place, rather than split over devices. I can work, edit and blog on the go and not have to make sure everything is on the likes of dropbox or emailed over.

It has a standard Android app store, so I can download everything that I have on my phone etc to make sure it's synced, including my Netflix. I've just gotten myself a Chromecast which I've connected up to it, so it makes watching movies and videos on my TV so much better. That is essentially my Christmas break plans sorted.

It contain BeatsAudio sound, so listening to Spotify or Youtube on it will be such a pleasure. More than anything, I can't wait to travel with this. Instead of lugging my laptop and kindle, I can just take this and I'll be sorted.

This would make a great Christmas present for a loved one, or even for yourself. It's a great new gadget to have and I can't wait to spend Christmas with it.

One Last Party Look

Hopefully you've all got your party looks together and organised. If not, there are still some great last minute dresses you can get, without breaking the bank too.

Wearing:
Dress - George at Asda
Shoes - Clarks Wedges

This dress was George at Asda and I couldn't believe how amazing it was. It fit like a dream and I loved the detailing at the top. I think this dress is perfect for a nice casual Christmas gathering: maybe Christmas Eve drinks or if you're doing Christmas at home. It's a really sweet dress so perfect for anything over the festive period.

I haven't checked out George at Asda in a while and I was so impressed when this arrived. It's lovely quality and a dress I can see myself wearing throughout the summer (when it comes) too.

And no massive heels for me for a while. I've spent a lot of time these last few months in insane heels and my legs have had enough. I even had to change out of my heels into flats at 11pm at my Christmas party. Who am I? I remember the days when I could party till 4am in crazy heels and still manage a chunky heel the next day. Hopefully I can build up my tolerance again in the new year. But in the meantime, I'm glad to have a large range of comfortable wedges to keep me going. Most of my parties are over, so I think it'll be comfy shoes for me for the rest of the year.
