Stacey's Smiles :)

I found these little guys in T.K Maxx and couldn't leave them behind.

I can't wait to head to London next week! 

Cozy Socks are my favourite. 

The sweetest package from Jennifer.

Working on some homemade Christmas gifts! 

Happy Friday!! I cannot believe it is December next week, I am so so excited to start decorating for Christmas! I am off to visit my best friend today and spend the weekend at a Christmas Market, I am looking forward to drinking mulled wine and bundling up in my knits this weekend to do some exploring!

Anna 'With Love From London'

I am so excited that the lovely Anna from the Anna with love shop has just launched her newest collection and all the gorgeous photos are from London, a city that I just cannot get enough of! The London Collection is brim full of colour and fun and there is something for everyone in this collection from the iconic red phone boxes to the pastel streets of Notting Hill. Anna's prints would make beautiful gifts for Christmas, I have gifted them in the past and I love the new print packs that come with individual envelopes for all the prints, so they are perfect for splitting and gifting to your favourite people. My personal favourites from The London Collection are 'Top of the Morning' , 'Tea & Crumpets' and 'London's Calling', while my sister adores 'My Best Mate'. Congratulations on another stunning collection Anna! 

A little birdie also told me there is going to be huge sale happening at the Anna with love shop starting tomorrow :)

Here Comes Winter

Hand Knitted Scarf // Zara Coat 

When I woke up on Saturday and heard the weather outside I did not want to leave my bed. Luckily the rain stopped for a bit and I got to bundle up in my cozy bobble hat and the scarf I knitted myself!

Christmas Stationery Essentials

The Holiday season is upon us and for most people it is a pretty busy time of year. I always have a never ending To-Do list during the month of December so I try my best to get as organised as I can so I have some time left to enjoy the festive season without being stressed out. Christmas stationery is always at the top of my shopping list.

Tiny Prints is my first stop for ordering all my Christmas stationery goods, I can order everything I need in one place and have it delivered to my doorstep, and they offer super affordable and fast international shipping. I love that you can customise everything from the colour of your envelopes and liners to matching address labels. They even do custom wrapping paper!

I always like to sit down and write my Christmas Cards whilst watching a Christmas film, drinking a mug of hot chocolate and enjoying a mince pie or two . I make sure to pick up some gold and silver pens, some confetti and Christmas stamps (or you can customise your own) from the post office so I am all prepared and ready to go. 

I like to buy my Thank -You cards at the same time as I buy my Christmas cards, it's always nice to send a little thank you to people who have helped you out during the year. 

This year I will also be setting my Hot Chocolate Bar up again and Tiny Prints had some of the cutest party invitations so I decided to customise them and send them to all of my friends invite them round. Be sure to check back in December for my tips on throwing a Hot Chocolate Bar Party.

Thank You to Tiny Prints for collaborating with me on this post.

Stacey's Smiles

My thoughts have been with Paris all week. 
Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. -MLK

A fun post coming next week with Tiny Prints.

Red Cup Season makes me smile! 

Obsessed with my newest TK Maxx finds. 

The perfect Christmas Card writing beverage.

I have been in full Christmas prep mode since last weekend, the countdown is on. The good thing about this time of year is I find a cup of Hot Chocolate pairs with just about any Christmas related activity perfectly, not that I really need an excuse haha! Happy Weekend!

Olive Green Knit

Sweater weather is one of my favourite times of the year and this olive green knit has been my favourite new purchase this autumn! I love that it is slightly longer in the back, it's perfect for throwing on over leggings or jeans for running some errands.
