Christmas decorations- I am only here in our little flat untill wednesday, when I am off home for christmas, but me and my boyfriend decided to decorate it anyway, and it cheered us up lots and lots!!!

Now I shall tag the ever so special little angel lottie from the tea drinking english rose and the ever so sweet sprinkle from {sprinkle} tiaras atop our pastel hair;;

My second tag is from the wonderfully sweet sprinkle with the magical blog {sprinkle} tiaras atop out pastel hair;;. For this tag I must list 6 things that make me happy, and then 6 wonderful bloggers!!!

1. Going home to visit family. I miss them so very m
uch when I am at uni, and its wonderful to be at home again, and just to sit and watch tv with them suddenly seems so very special!!

2. Cuddles. A big big hug from someone you love and who makes you smile, especially ones you didnt expect.

3. Spending an evening watching a lovely film, snuggled up with my boyfriend and a cup of tea. I would much rather do this than go out clubbing, which some find very strange for someone of my age!! But it makes me happy.

4. Handwritten notes, from someone I care about; my little brother, my boyfriend, a friend, a simple card from a relative- theres something so special and personal about them.

5. Looking through old photographs and remembering
wonderful memories.

6. Browsing market stalls, charity shops, anique shops- anywhere quirky or unusual where i can find a real treasure and be inspired by all the beautiful things there.

And now the 6 lovely people I choose to tag are:

The girly
raspberry jam and maple syrrup
The cute "I can watch a sunset on my own"
The arty inside the cabinet of wonder
The lovely capture the castle
The sweet the yellow elephant
The magical end of march

I wish I could tag all of you lovelies, I really do!!!

My third tag is a very exciting tag, again from sweet sprinkle. It is called the fairy wishes tag, where I must write down all of my fairy wishes, then sprinkle them somewhere. She came up with this tag herself, too, and it is just the most delightful idea!! I have prepared all of my fairy wishes today, which was such a lovely thing to do, and put them in this little jar I decorated, I will take this out with me on a walk tomorrow, with my camera, and find somewhere special enough I would like them to be sprinkled!!! I will post the pictures from this, and tag other lovely fairies, as soon as I can.I am feeling rather guilty and bad, amoungst all sweetness of all of you lovely souls. I decided this evening to celebrate us meeting very important deadlines, I would make me and my boyfriend a very special dinner. I made mash potato, vegtables, and chicken in a red wine and onion sauce, which I made myself. I was very pleased with the result, and the first few bites tasted delicious. And then I noticed a speck of red, and some pink in my chicken. It wasnt cooked properly. I was so sure I had cooked it properly, but it was hard to tell because of the sauce. So instead of celebrating this evening, I have given us food poisoning. Oh dear. We are both rather poorly, was painful tummies. and I feel so guilty. But we do have a sense of humour, and although feeling rather horrible, are laughing about it. Oh dear!!

I am off to bed now with a hot water bottle to help my tummy. I wish all of you sweet dreams, and thank you again for your kindness and beautiful words that have made me smile and smile, even though I am poorly now. I wish you laughter and christmas joy, and promises that I wont leave it so long untill I post again!!

x ♥



    It's so christmas-y and wonderful!!

    YAY for the holidays!

  2. Vanilla angel delight with chocolae sprinkles, yumyumyumm!
    Oh I do love angel delight, it makes me feel as though I am very young again eating mushy baby food, weird but nice :) !

    Gorgeous pictures, and your fairy lights look magical!


  3. chocolate* gawsh I can' even spell the yummiest thing on earth!

  4. wow a post filled with utterly delightful things. your ring is very cute by the way (as are you), and i love the look of that pudding and the fairylights. sounds like you are having a lovely time despite having much too much work, although aren't we all?

    thanks for doing the tag, wasn't it very hard! i mean, it doesn't seem like it would be hard but it is... your answers were grea.t and you're very lucky to have your significant other by your side as you type. haha. :D

    re your comment on my blog: aren't the dresses just divine! truly truly beautiful, how i love them so! and the chance to wear something as amazing as that to an event as wonderful as the debutante ball... i would actually kill to have that chance i think.

    oh and finally, that tag sounds very cool, i'm off to do it now i think. i've been planning on doing a post on the chanel pre-fall collection tomorrow, so i shall do the tag at the end of that.

    hope you have a good saturday, and that you are well. it certainly sounds that way!
    i am very much jealous of your snow. i've never seen it before, and it fascinated and delights me so. damn australia and it's tropical climate.
    ughhh it's so hot, i hate it.

  5. oh dear oh dear poor princess star.
    rosie is not so rosy today... but pale. which makes my heart drop a teeny bit.
    i wish for betterness and get well soons to you.
    i send you strawberry sherbets. (my father used to buy me some when i was ill, younger times.)

    the tags are super lovely, and i cannot wait to do the fairy tag, i am so excited, but must have to wait until deadlines are reached and gone. gone far away to nowhere land.
    the one worded tag looks tricky... like hair colour for example. using only one words seem hard for me.
    thank you for the challenge. i will do it in a teeny while.

    you are wonderful, and i adore the christmas lights. i wish for some.
    and yippee jumps for joy for snowy mornings.

    egg nog and mince pie tea parties at the moon park.

  7. this post is magical! i secerely hope your tummy is getting better, dear. and i also have weeks like yours, too much to do and too little time. in december each day should have 25 hours instead of 24...

    Fairy hugs & wishes.
    xx Felicity.

  16. Thank you for your comment. Yes, of course, feel free to add me. I will add you too when I have a spare minute. My skirt is from ASOS, but I bought it a while back. It's by Pepe jeans. It's high-waisted with buttons down the front. I hope you find it, as it's such a lovely skirt.

  17. Yummy pretty pictures. I really must mend my fairy lights, they make the prettiesnt lighting don't they?!
    I hope you are feeling better soon.

  18. are you feeling better rosy cheeks?
    i hope so completely.
    i haven't had much time to check my whisper mail, and i want to reply properly so i will try my very best indeed to do so tomorrow.
    i will take a break in my horrid work mountain to read and reply to my favouritist.

    if you are not feeling better, i hope i have something that cheers you up completely.
    i have given you an award. because you are my perfect moon friend who believes in stars and magic, and makes me completely smile and giggle like a moon best friend.

    and if you are feeling better, i hope you feel so much more happier.
    you deserve such a wonderful thing.
    the award and happy faces.

    anyway, i am sure snuggling up watching christmas films or children's programmes with your boy is making you both feel better from the rosy chicken.

    anyway, i wanted to reply better and properly, so i hope yo do not mind quite so much that this is not wonderful. but i will try my hardest to whisper mail you. i moon fairy promise.

    sleep tight angel delight.
    dream of stars and fairy sprinkles and cloud nines and moon tea parties and star biscuits and forever giggles. and getting better from rosy food.


  19. Thank you for your lovely comment, it brightened a rather dull, work filled day! Rather than accepting your thanks for following your blog, I feel that I should be thanking you for giving me something so bewitching and inspiring to read. You make me wish I was more artistic, although drawing has never been more forte so I guess I shall channel my creative side through my words. I look forward to being inspired by your next post :) xxxx

  20. I love your posts.
    So cute & pretty. Especially the pics.

    Get better soon!

  21. sweet post! so charming :)
    i love the kinder toys you got- and the fairy lights of course. i am especially in love with your ring! where is it from?


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate all of them x
