Weekend Friday Favourites

I’m meant to be wrapping Christmas presents so they make the last self imposed post day in 2 days, rewriting Christmas cards address so the post office can actually read them or until I run out of envelopes or my hand cramps up after 5.

The more I have to write, the worst my handwriting get. I seriously can’t believe how I used to handwrite all my essays at high school. Yes, I can. I had to. Instead I’ve been watching Youtube, tackling the pile of KonMari Method papers that no matter how many folders I’ve sorted already the pile never appears to go down. And last minute christmas shopping before the last self imposed post day. I keep avoiding the wrapping and writing. I always do it at the last minute with the last self imposed post day extended by a few days and send luck they get there in time.

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have been making me smile with week or have caught my eye.

Most of the animals are in their night enclosures by the time I make the gates just before they close. With 30 minutes before the grounds close, these guys are one of the few still up.

HM Reindeer Cat JumperHM Christmas reindeer cat jumper

I received a penguin jumper one year that I lived in (I was about 8/9) but I don’t think I’ve ever had a Christmas jumper. My mum used to knit Christmas inspired jumpers for my Dad, Brother and ex brother in law as she probably didn’t know what to get them. This year I have my very first Christmas jumper! Please excuse the bad lighting, long face, hair that gets cut next week changing room selfie. Cat with reindeer antlers, I couldn’t pass up!

I’m sure I’m not the only one who buys themselves a gift set! The palettes have just enough shadow to experiment with, without spending a small fortune and having a full sized pot you don’t like or use. I love that they come with shadow combination guide for each palette. I’ve only used Be A Role Model so far and love it’s subtle shimmer (If you have oily skin like me an eyeshadow primer will make it last longer. Oily skin eats eyeshadow!)! They make a great gift to any makeup junkie.

No tree, but I have Christmas napkins! I have a thing for reindeer decorations and at €1 these were leaving the shop with me!

Exploring a side street just off the posh end of Passeig de Gracia, I found another Korean Cosmetic shop! I got a little excited and couldn’t believe the prices. Cheaper than Sephora own brand, which makes you think of how much mark up there is. Though some Missha products have parabens in, they don’t test on animals, so I’ll be back. I’ve kinda placed an self imposed ban on buying any more skincare, make up and clothes until after the sales. But that might not include their eye fibre masks when they’re back in stock. Just saying.

      Lucky you having Christmas week off! I always liked working Christmas week in London as the place was quiet and we got to leave early nearly everyday! I didn’t like the working though the week between Christmas and the New Year. Back to full hours and the place was dead!

      The boys are on medicine for the long term 🙁 And I think chicken. I’m getting a little tired cooking it and shopping for it, but if the vet says it’s all they can have with a little bit of crunch, then it’s all they can have xoxo

    I am loving the sweater selection at H & M lately. I love your cat!

      They have a great selection this year and the best bit is you can actually wear them outside the safety and judgment free zone of your home!
