Getting Festive

This year has gone by so quickly, it seems like just yesterday I was having fun in summer with the boyfriend and besties and all of a sudden I'm Christmas shopping ahh!! Whilst on the way back from the pharmacy and doctors I popped into my favorite boutique in Marlow, Huttons, they always have the cutest clothes, accessories, homeware and gifts. I picked up a couple little xmas presents and some home pieces but also a few other bits I want to share with you. All of course in the festive spirit.
These Hello Kitty Christmas cards were just too cute not to buy, different from my normal style of xmas cards but I'm sure my friend will love them! They had loads of different designs to choose from, I settled on these two sweet ones.
Getting in the festive mood again with this candle, I am a huge candle lover with about 4 different winter festive ones on the go already however this one was different to the others. This is a lot lighter and sweeter, not as spicy and deep so I thought it would be a nice change.
You may have seen my other post last week about the circle necklace (pictured above) that I love, it is  so delicate and small - perfect for my taste! So when I saw this teeny snowflake one I knew it would be the perfect necklace for winter. Normally I'm not a big necklace lover, I prefer bracelets but when I do buy a necklace I like them to be small and simple like these. Aren't they pretty together? I can hear the heart one calling my name...
I could get a good shot of this headband on it's own, as it is so dark and the light outside was going too but I think this picture does it justice nicely! Headbands are a favorite of mine during the colder months, who am I kidding I where them whenever I can all year round. This one is different to others I own, it is a lovely thick knit that is braided. I think it looks rather nice on me, they had it in grey and tan too so you may see this in another colour on my blog soon too ;).
