Disney princesses strike a pose!

As a huge Disney fan I was so excited to see the princesses featuring as magazine cover models! It is just too cute (and clever) for words!

I love some of the captions and headlines on some of these, they are pretty clever if you have seen the movies!
Each princess really does suit each style of mag too, dontcha think?

I love Aurora on the cover of Glamour and Ariel on Seventeen. But I also like Jasmine being a saucy minx on the cover of Cosmo too!

Who is your favourite?

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree...

How something you somethinggggg...
Geeze talk about sad times when you can't even remember the lyrics for "Oh Christmas tree".
But saying that I am more of a jingle bell rock and santa baby fan anyway :)

I can't believe how quickly Christmas is creeping up! While I am excited for it to arrive I wish it would slow down just a little so I can make the most of it. The days are flying on by way too fast.

I don't know about anyone else but I love looking at other peoples Christmas trees and decorations so I thought I would share my family's.
It is very very simple- green and gold and not much more. No tinsel, nothing overly fussy, but that's okay we like it like that! It has that kind of classic old school Christmas feel about it :)

Ornaments range from Disney, Myer and Royal Doultan to $2 shops and Target.
I also had to share my beautiful little Nutcracker dolls which I am so in love with. Totally get how Clara felt. I got these wooden dolls at Freedom and it is taking every ounce of restraint to not go back and buy another 10 or so!

Do you love decking out for Christmas or do you like to keep things simple?

A new bag for the festive season!

Seeing it is almost Christmas (19 days!) I probably- ahem, definitely- shouldn't be spending money on myself.
But if I see a bag that I truly love then I just can't help myself. Shoes and clothes I can walk away from but bags are the one thing I can not resist!

I saw this Mimco mini half moon bag online and it was love at first sight. And I figure a girls gotta have a nice bag for the festive season right? Dinners, Christmas do's, Christmas shopping (with what money I have left after buying bags for myself that is...)
I am totally justifying my selfish purchase here right?

I got my new treasure from eBay. It was $10 cheaper than getting it from actual Mimco and it was sold brand new with tags and the dust bag, plus free postage. So I figure that's a littleeee extra I can splurge on someone else for Christmas!

I know I should but I don't regret buying it at all. I am totally in love with it. It's the perfect size and fits everything I need!

I love Christmas shopping (especially online) but sometimes it's so hard to resist buying stuff for yourself! Or is that just me?...
