Had a meeting today and realised it’s only three weeks until Christmas. I mean, I knew it would be soon because it’s December but at the same time it feels like it shouldn’t be that soon. Does anyone else feel like that? I’m not sure I’m that organised this year, I haven’t decorated completely, haven’t got my Christmas card list written and haven’t bought any Christmas presents for a while. It all started so well too. Oh well, looks like it’ll be panic buying at the last minute again.Continue reading “Blogmas 2019 Day 4:”
I mentioned this yesterday but I wanted to post a photo and I was wondering if anyone has done the whole DIY flocked tree with fake snow thing? I would say it was a success, except for the amount I thought I needed, but know it takes longer than I expect to dry. Last night it was still wet and wiped off easily, today it’s all crumbly and only comes off in pieces. Have any of you tried this? Is there a knack to it or is it just spray it on and leave it?Continue reading “Blogmas 2019 Day 3: My DIY Flocked Tree”
I have never done the themed tree look, unless uncoordinated mess of colour is a theme. But I’ve been seeing so many youtubers do them and loving the look of the Scandinavian style that I decided to give it a go. One step I maybe should have avoided was trying to use spray on snow as DIY flocking. I’d seen a few others do it and it looked good, I just didn’t realise how much would be needed for a 3 foot tree! I was wondering how many of you guys do themed trees? And if you do what themes do you go for? I have to say I’m loving the farmhouse theme with the buffalo check and red truck that’s everywhere in America, I may have light some cheap cushion covers with that style for my desk chair.
It’s the second day of advent and it’s definitely still feeling like Christmas morning when it comes to opening six surprises each morning though I’m not sure I’d get this many again! It’s fun but storing them is a lot harder!Continue reading “Blogmas 2019 Day 2: Themed Christmas Trees?”
How is it already December? I’m not sure where 2019 has gone, doesn’t feel that long ago I was doing Blogmas last year! Anyway, I’m going to give it another go and try to post daily, or almost daily as I’m probably going to catch up with my days after I’ve been away rather than opening the days early like in the past, it never seemed to work that well.
I may have gone a bit overboard when it comes to advent calendars this year. The most I’ve had in the past was three, this year I have six! Only one will really have a review each day as the others I think are exclusive to the advent calendars, but they are still available. I have a feeling a couple of them will be for some time so if half way through you like what you see it might be worth picking them up on sale, they’re already reduced!
For a while I’ve really wanted to try some Japanese snacks, I did get a couple of Popin Cookin sets and they were lots of fun and tasted surprisingly good considering the fact they were powders with water added. When I made an order recently from the Tofu Cute site I bought one of the snack lucky bags. They do two kinds of lucky bag, the snack one and one full of fluffy things from the Amuse brand that does the Alpacasso plushes, I did a review of a larger bag of them here. They come in four sizes; chibi (£12.99), sugoi (£19.99), senpai (£29.99) and sumo (£49.99).
The Tofu Cute Lucky Bags bags say that they always contain products worth more than you’ve paid and I can say that in my case that’s true, but not by as much as I was hoping. Adding them all up the total comes to £13.64 and the bag cost £12.99 so it’s 65p off, unless my maths is wrong. I think if you get the larger bags, I got the smallest, then you would get a greater value compared to what you spend.
