On The First Day Of Christmas...

December is finally upon us! Excuse me whilst I drag out all my Christmas films and start with the Micheal Bublé albums, but there is something so magical about December. Everyone generally seems cheerier, the holidays are approaching and the thought of three different types of potatoes at my Christmas Dinner is already making me salivate something awful! Is it weird that i've decorated my bedroom and bathroom with christmas candles and decorations? I am addicted to the Mackintosh Spice Yankee candle.
Aside from my festive excitement, nothing interesting has occured this week because, yep you guessed it, i've been swamped with dissertation reading and writing but finally i've finished huzzah! Well the draft anyway. Our final hand in is in February and i'll be glad to see the back of it! I'm so used to practical projects that i almost forgot how to write. Thank God for blogging eh?
One thing i've been making the effort to do every Sunday is write out a list of lovely things that have happened in the week, it is so easy to focus on the negative and forget the good in life and this is just my weekly reminder that life is sometimes so beautiful, even the little things like drinking a strong cup of coffee in bed whilst the sunlight beams through your window is a wonder. 
I'm spending my sunday looking for Butternut Squash recipes, I'm not sure why but I have a strong urge to cook some? I think i've been spending too much time in the Vegan and Vegetarian tags on Tumblr! I'm hoping to make some Butternut Squash soup this week! What have you been doing this week? Anything more interesting that arguing if the Architectural Representational Paradigm is changing with the rise of Technology like myself? 

Have a blessed Sunday! 


  1. Gorgeous post Sade, got me even more excited for Christmas! Good luck with all the uni work, you've gotta be one of the most hard working people and I'm actually looking forward for you to finishing it all haha! Butternut squash is one of my favourite things, let us know if you find a good recipe! xxx

  2. That's such a good idea to write out positive things! Re the butternut squash - I used to make this all the time: http://www.weightwatchers.co.uk/food/rcp/RecipePage.aspx?recipeid=72121 - it's pretty nice!


  3. I think writing good thinks that happen during the week is a lovely idea, simple way to remind you to appreciate the little things! Definitely going to start doing that this month :) I'm spending this Sunday planning my study schedule for December, not excited about it but it has to be done lol. Have a good week!

  4. I can't believe we're in December already! I'm not at all prepared for Christmas, scary!!

  5. Ooohhh I just wanna cuddle you when you look like that, Sade! You look so festive and gorgeous - like you just SMELL good (I'll stop with the weird, but really, you look lovely!). I am determined to go out and buy some tinsel tomorrow and put it all over my house like christmas threw up all over the place.
    I'm also collecting christmas candles, and once I've finally got some drain unblocker tomorrow I'm going to sort out the drain in my bathroom (the last tenants blocked it, I still haven't cleared it) - I'll run a bit bubbly bath, get some cinnamon bath soak & light some christmas candles all around me... ahhhh!

    Also borrowing your idea about writing down the good things in the week - lord knows I need it, I've been the most negative nora in the whole world this week.


  6. I think writing about positive things is such a lovely and helpful idea, keep on doing that!
    Loved this type of post and your outfits are amazing!

  7. I do love all your sunday posts sade, they're always so comforting to read especially all your lists of happy things. Good luck with all your Uni work lovely, glad you've got your draft done in time for christmas, make sure you relax you hard working lady you! x

  8. I love your 'Good Things' list! Always great to make sure to appreciate the good things going on and is a great way to document things and go back to them whenever you feel a bit 'meh'
