Lazy Links #8

Lazy Links

This week I have been.... 

Spending! Eeeep, not the time of year to really be spending on myself but I desperately needed some new glasses and sunglasses. Plus I'm going on holiday in just under 2 weeks which means - clothes shopping! I still plan a Primark visit (I'm sure there will be Christmas purchases involved - a novelty jumper, *that* red wine coloured velvet skater skirt and of course some mandatory pyjamas) for basics. But the main bulk of my holiday shopping has been happening on the ASOS sale, New Look and Fragrance Direct.

Lusting after Maybelline Color Show Brocades in Knitted Gold (swatches found here)... Isn't it amazing! I'm crossing my fingers and toes that this shade is out in the UK as the blog I discovered it on is an irish one. It will be mine! 

Writing down lots of Christmas post ideas... I feel I haven't fully got in to the swing of things as I will be going on holiday soon and that is a sure way to undo all the festive feelings I have. But once I'm back (on the 1st December) I plan to love Christmas more than Buddy the Elf minus spaghetti with maple syrup for breakfast mind. I hopefully will have some interesting gift guides to show you for even the cheapest of budgets, lots of festive nail art, a few lovely giveaways and some Christmas-y interviews

I've also have been stocking up on books for winter/my holiday. I asked a lovely blog reader of mine called Vilde (who has read an amazing 300 books this year!) what she'd recommend as a holiday read. After asking what genre of books I liked she suggested 'A Monster Calls' which had been sitting in my Amazon Wish List for the past two months. So I instantly purchased that - thanks Vilde! I also have 'The Last Letter from Your Lover','The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' and 'Never Let Me Go' to read.

Craving a Christmas hot drink! The festive red cups are back for Costa and Starbucks plus a range of wintry drinks. I plan to brave the cold and go shopping next week but what to get! I'm torn between a Costa White Hot Chocolate or a Starbucks Chocolate Orange Mocha. What is your favourite festive hot drink?

Stocking up on Christmas magazines and catalogues. I already have my multiple copies of Glamour mag for the Nails Inc/Kate Spade free nail polishes and The Body Shop Joy Card (I got £3 ones), I also bought Woman & Home magazine (very festive) and I've sure I will be picking up Marie Claire. Sadly though Red magazine has been a let down on the Christmas front... guest edited by Goop/Gwyneth Paltrow it's just all a bit too serious and un-christmas like for me! 

Also got my Boots Christmas catalogue and a lovely luxury Booths supermarket one that contains some amazing recipes. Just the John Lewis one still to pick up. Sometimes it's the little things like this that can make you feel quite festive.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday whatever your plans! And make sure to share with me your favourite hot winter time drink with me! 

Fee xo.
