You may have seen my recent post where I invited you to meet our two new kittens - Felix and Bella (if you didn't, then please go ahead and click that post to read it!) Anyway, I know it's Christmas and we were all out being crazy shoppers and getting all in a tizz about buying gifts for our loved ones - family and friends. One thing we tend to forget about is treating our pets to something at Christmas time, after all, they are our family really! I bought our kittens some new toys and some tasty treats for Christmas. One thing I was kindly sent was one of the Purrboxes - a monthly box which very conveniently fits through your letterbox, and is filled with toys and treats for Cats!

You can sign up to Purrboxes for a charge of £9.95 (including delivery) per month and they are usually dispatched around the middle of the month, and are sent via Royal Mail 1st Class post, so they arrive pretty quickly. As I said, they are conveniently sized to fit through most standard letterboxes, so no need to worry if you're at work during the day - it will be waiting for you when you get home! 

When you sign up to Purrboxes, you will have to fill in a profile about your cats/kittens to make sure the treats inside your box will be suitable for them! This will also give you chance to tell them your cats names, so that they will be on your address label on the box! Such a cute little thing! Each Purrbox will be filled with a selection of  TOYS, TREATS, CAT GRASS, CATNIP, THE BOX(to play in) and the monthly PurrPost newsletter. 

Purrboxes are GOOD FOR YOU - to play with and spend quality time with your cat, which in turn reduces stress and makes you happier! GOOD FOR YOUR CAT - Excercise and treats in moderation help your cat to live a healthy life and avoid obesity, diabetes and arthritis! GOOD FOR YOUR HOME - we've learnt all about the havoc that a couple of kittens can cause to your home so far! So the selection of treats and toys can help keep your cat stimulated and interested, which saves other items from unwelcomed attention! 

The DECEMBER BOX was filled with some lovely festive treats; a packet of Tantalising Turkey Dreamies, Webbox Cat Delight Turkey & Sausage Festive Cat Sticks, a cute Christmas Tree play toy, a packet of Catnip to put inside the Teddy Bear Play Toy, and then a couple of compost pellets, and a packet of Cat Grass to grow your months supply of grass! Finally there was a little treat for me in the form of a Fox's Glacier Mint (apparently cats like minty breath??)

Anyway, overall I was quite impressed with the contents of the December PurrBox! And so were Felix and Bella, because as soon as it arrived they couldn't wait to get it open! They particularly liked to carry around the bear and the tree toys with the catnip inside and they really enjoyed their festive food! You can subscribe to PurrBoxes here!

Blogmas Day 23 | Winter Florals & Festive Nails


Sorry that this post is rather late, but I did so well with Blogmas and only missed the last two days of it, so wanted to complete it by posting the posts which I had in mind anyway, so I hope this is okay! 

I recently got this gorgeous floral swing/skater dress from Eles Clothing who are a UK based wholesale retailer of High Street branded clothing at discounted prices! I like Eles clothing because they are based in the UK so delivery is much quicker than buying from other wholesalers I've come across usually based in China! 

I couldn't believe the quality of this dress when it arrived, and also how accurate the sizing is! I ordered a size 12 which fits perfectly - and the skater style is quite flattering as it doesn't emphasise any chubby bits(ideal for when we all gain a couple extra pounds after we've over-indulged on festive food haha) It's made of lovely thick material, and the colours are beautiful and it washes well too without fading! The dress is a really good length too, ideal for wearing with leggings(my usual attire). I wore this dress to go Christmas shopping with my family, and it was super comfortable along with a pair of flat black boots. 

Finally I thought I'd show you how I painted my nails for Christmas, I used Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in "Pomegranate" all over, and then used last years Barry M Limited Edition Christmas Glitter polish on an accent nail! So simple yet really cute.

What do you think about florals during the A/W months?

Blogmas Day 22 | My Christmas Jumpers! Primark / Store Twenty One

This is the first year I actually decided to take the plunge and buy myself a Christmas jumper! I know in previous years I've wanted to get one but by the time it came to getting one they were all sold out or not in the right sizes I needed. Not only have I bought one this year, I've actually grabbed two Christmas jumpers...

The first one is from Primark and is from their Disney branded products, and it's this adorable Bambi Christmas jumper, its more of a traditional Christmas style, with Bambi donning a red santa hat. Unfortunately this was a little pricey at £20, but I suspect this is due to the fact that it lights up? The collar around Bambi's neck is actually some little fairy lights which are multi coloured and light up in different sequences. This is so cute and I can't wait to wear it for Christmas day!

The second one I've actually already worn on the last day of work before we broke up for Christmas! Its from a place called Store Twenty One - who actually have some really lovely clothing and even some homeware! I picked the mint green shade with these cutesie Gingerbread men on it! They're all in different little outfits and colours, and it's just way too cute! I teamed it with a collared shirt to finish off the look which you can see here from my Instagram pics! This one was only £10 and it feels so warm and cosy!


Anyway yes, thats my Christmas jumpers, and I'm pretty sure these will last me a good few years at least! Let me know if you've written a post about your Christmas Jumpers! I'd love to see them :)
