Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday! | Blogmas Day Five

The promise of a new year always stirs my desire for reflection & change, so with that in mind I've decided it's time to bring back an old favourite. It's always good to focus on the positive things, no matter how small or insignificant they seem. After all, very often the little things mean the most.
Rediscovering my mini Christmas tree in our decoration box. I got it a couple of years ago for just a few pence. It's pretty over the top, but it's so tiny and adds a little bit of festive cheer to my desk.

Watching the Harry Potter films throughout December - it's The Chamber of Secrets tomorrow. afternoon #FollowTheSpiders?!

Yankee Candle Candy Cane Lane - I'm already half way through my second little jar and definitely regretting not getting the big jar! I've been burning it constantly at my desk and loving every second.

Chocolate digestive biscuits. They're my new weakness and I think I'm going to have to stop buying them!

I had to buy a new little bookcase this week because my others are very full. I regret absolutely nothing about this situation!

  20. That little tree is just wonderful! I got so excited when I found HP on last Saturday although my OH doesn't like watching them on TV when we have the boxset and we can miss the adverts but it's not the same! Still need to read the books!
    Chocolate digestives are my weakness! There really the only biscuits I eat but I only eat 3 a day, trying to lower my wheat/gluten intake but they are so worth sore tummy's so I feel you!

    1. There's something extra magical about watching them on the TV for some reason hehe xx
