Thoughts of the week…

I told myself that once I returned from holidays I would finally allow myself to get into the Christmas spirit, so today I put the Christmas tree up, baked some Christmas cookies and watched my first Christmas movie of the season (Elf).

01) I don’t care how many new Christmas albums get released every year, my heart will forever lie with Bing Crosby.

02) I loved being on holidays but I wasn’t too upset to return home because I have so many fun events coming up over the next few weeks. I’m one of those annoying people who gets heavily involved in Christmas so I apologize in advance.

03) I found out a couple of weeks ago that I received pre-approval for my home loan, which means I’ve started mentally planning how I’m going to furnish and decorate my new home when it’s built. IKEA, here I come.

04) I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I won’t be completing the 50 book challenge this year. At this stage my goal is to try and finish off all of the books I started and set aside throughout the year. Can I complete 5 books in a month? We’ll see.

05) I went and saw Skyfall with my sister and brother-in-law while I was in Sydney and although it wasn’t a perfect film, it was the mindless Bond entertainment I was expecting (and love). I’m going to see it again tomorrow with my parents. Q is a bit of a babe.

06) I ordered two pairs of my favourite Country Road ballet flats while I was in Sydney (taking advantage of their spend $200 save $50 sale) and only one pair was sent to me. Hmm.

07) I didn’t think to take a hair dryer with me when I went over East, so I was forced to borrow a friend’s Parlux and I immediately ordered one for myself. This product definitely lives up to the hype.

08) I have no idea what I want for Christmas. It’s possible that I should have waited and asked for a Parlux. Oh well.

09) It’s early days, but I think I’m in love with the mini Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment that Sephora sent me for my Birthday gift this year.

10) Oh look, Darren Criss being Christmassy.
