When it comes to Christmas shopping, I’m a bit rubbish. Every single year, I end up leaving it until mid-December then doing a frantic online shop without even checking how much I’m spending. The result is predictably rather stressful and ends with January being fulled by beans on toast and regret.
*Our tree and decorations were gifted, however, all opinions and words are my own as always
Putting up the Christmas tree is a firm tradition in our household. In the first week of December (yes, I know it’s not in keeping with the ’12 Days of Christmas’ thing but I’m impatient), we put festive tunes on Spotify, enjoy a glass of Bucks Fizz and spend an evening transforming our humble abode into a winter wonderland.
I was lucky enough to attend the very first Joanie Clothing blogger event last Christmas and when I was asked if I’d like to join them again this year for another evening of festive fun, I didn’t hesitate to RSVP!
If you haven’t already heard of Joanie Clothing, you really are missing out. This Manchester-based brand boasts something refreshingly different from the usual high street offerings, with quirky and fun styles, gorgeous slogan jumpers, stunning dresses and more.
