Afternoon to ya all. With Christmas fast approaching I am sure all of you are far more organised that I am. Not bought a single Christmas present yet. I am fanatically browsing web in hope of finding something for somebody and everybody. Christmas shoppers will apparently spend a fortune today, in what is dubbed The Mega Monday. At least that what I’ve read online and in paper last night. I do have a few suggestions for all of you late birds who don’t have time to go out and browse the shops. Here are a few online shops I have used before and was very satisfied with the service and products.
One really cool website I like is Fab. They have a range of cool presents starting from this Lamp for him and this quirky suitcase for her. They are both on sale now so hurry up.
I love notonthehighstreet online shop too. These coasters got my attention and they are not much at all. £12.
I also love this mustache door mat costing only £25 and I think its a great present for any friend who did a Movember thing.
Last is Very where you can find up to 50% sale at the moment and this onesie really cough my eye.

It has been almost exactly a year since we visited South Africa. What a beautiful country. If there is a place I can/could live or re locate tomorrow it would be South Africa( in wine region of course.) To be more specific in a beautiful town called Franschhoek. I have already shared a lovely buy from South Africa on this blog before and now I have another one. My write-on chalk mugs. I’m not a morning person and yes, I am a grumpy gruffalo when I’m trying to wake up. Hence the love for these mugs. They make me smile. I love leaving little notes to my husband and vice verse. It is a game we love to play. The joys of little things in life… It’s entertaining for our friends as well…leaving them notes. Dirty notes.
I did a bit of research where to get them from in England and I found them in a few places. Prezzybox has them and so does Daniel store. A great pressie for Christmas or what???

Last spring I stumbled on this cool coffee shop in Greenwich. What makes this place cool is that they offer paint your own ceramic parties! It is a popular place for a hen night & kids parties… I went there for a quick cuppa and bought two of their ceramics skulls (for him&her). As I was in an artist rush to paint them myself I havent took any pictures of them before. But I did find exactly the same skull picture on net. So this is what they/it look like before the paint. (without the golden tooth)
And this is what they look now. I went for a mexican candy look.
I used deluxe paint for wood that I bought in Homebase a few months before to paint my tired & plain wood kitchen chairs. But more on them in another post.
What do you think?
