Wow, I can’t believe we are on week 50 of my Eat, Move, Wear, Love, Link posts! How time flies. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about 2015 this week, I’m so excited for the start of the New Year! But of course, we still have Christmas to come. On Monday I went shopping with Finley and my parents and we all treated ourselves to festive hot chocolates and muffins in Costa. 

Eat

Those cookies rock my world! They did not last long.

Move

Urgh, there has been pretty much no exercise going on this week. A combination of crap weather and getting little to no sleep because of the storm on Tuesday night (along with Finley waking up all the time!) just left me too tired to do anything. To be honest I wish I’d made the effort as a bit of exercise usually perks me up. Realistically I’m not going to get to the gym again before New Year, but I need to give myself a kick up the arse to do more, even if it’s just walking.

Due to said tiredness I’ve been in yoga pants all week, so instead of an outfit here is a lovely picture of the gorgeous (boob accessible for breastfeeding too!) dress I got from Topshop on my shopping trip. Love it!

I’ve wanted this Christmas album for a couple of years and James reminded me to order it! Also…

Lots of deliveries of Christmas gifts for others (and myself!) // Finley just being Finley :-) // visiting my sister // my cousin Catherine, her hubby Gareth and boy Espen popping round for a visit // Home Alone 2 // making truffles, recipe coming up next week! // 5 hours straight sleep! – Only cause James let Finley sleep on his chest so I could get more rest // wrapping Christmas gifts // organising a bloody brilliant giveaway ready for January – you guys are going to love it! // treating myself to the Lucky Bitch Christmas bundle and the utterly wonderful Leonie Dawson Life + Biz Planner for 2015

Well I am finally starting to feel prepared for Christmas, I have most of my gifts purchased and I have an outfit ready for a night out next week. I do start and get reflective as the end of the year approaches too, although I try not to spend too much time thinking about what next year might bring when I still have the rest of this year to enjoy!

Have you indulged in a festive hot drink yet? When do you start thinking about the New Year?

    I had a yummy gingernut latte this week as I did my Christmas shopping – it was lovely! Currently watching Home Alone as well while organising my daughter’s Christmas Eve surprise box :-) I haven’t even begun thinking about 2015 yet but I have some big projects this year including starting my PhD research so I have a feeling it’s going to be a crazy one! Hope you get some more sleep this week and out on a refreshing walk or two xx

      Glad you got your latte :-) I can’t wait to start a Christmas eve tradition with Finley, so excited for his first Christmas! Starting PhD research sounds exciting and a bit scary, bet you are going to have a great 2015!

    I love the dress!
    I have not even started Christmas shopping… It is just too warm here to remember it is Christmas!! There is hardly any decorations anywhere, it is so different to the UK! Makes me miss home!!
    Eats look delicious as always :)
    I love that article from Gala too!

    I actually always wondered if you actually get the biscuits with the costa hot drinks! I had a black cherry hot choc this week but no cream, and no topping- not sure if it is meant to have anything?
    It wasn’t Christmassy, but I watched Annie the other day which took me back to my childhood!

      My Mam has been having that one but I think the black cherry part of it is just the topping. I think theres loads of films that aren’t featuring Christmas but are still Christmassy, Mary Poppins is one of mine!

    I love that dress! I’ve not had a Christmas coffee yet this year but those Costa ones look amazing! x

      Thanks Lily! They are indeed amazing, I think the chocolate orange one is winning amongst my family!

    I’m so boring with my food – I don’t make it festive at all! I stick with my same old porridge…but then I do love it. When Christmas day has finished then I enjoy ALL THE LEFTOVERS. That’s my favourite time I think.
    The dress is very pretty – Top Shop do do some nice stuff but it’s always buried beneath hideously “out there” clothes.
    I’m only thinking about the New Year as my holiday is soon after wahay!

      Leftovers are the best! I agree about Topshop, every so often I think I’ll stop shopping in there but then I find something nice. Far too many crop tops for me though!

    I have the She & Him Christmas album and it’s lovely. My eight year old and I like to belt out “Baby, it’s cold outside” and dance around together!
    My favourite Christmas tipple, and I don’t drink it much as I have a really low alcohol tolerance (I’m a cheap date, basically) is a Sea Breeze. Cranberry juice, freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice and a splash of vodka, with a slice of fresh lime. Lots of ice too. Yum!
    Have a fab festive season, Laura. x

      Haha, I’ve been singing it to Finley when we are driving about in the car! I’m out for drinks tonight and I think I’ll be one cheap date too!

    Haha I had so many hot chocolates since the beginning of December, it’s amazing I didn’t put on weight yet! The Costa peppermint one looks divine! Looking forward to see what you will do in 2015! xx
