It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I can almost people sighing and saying "Marianne ... honey .. you're confused... we've not even had Halloween yet ! " . I know , I know ! If you're one of those people that really celebrates Halloween and has no interest in Christmas until December 1st then well ... you're a normal person and well done hehe :) Feel free to come back to this post when you're ready for Christmas and I hope you have a great Halloween ! However for those of you that are like me .. OH MY GOSH IT'S CHRISTMAS !!!! ... nearly :)



I absolutely love Christmas because everybody becomes so much brighter and stranger wish you joy and it's finally socially acceptable to sing in shops ! I don't know about you, but I absolutely thrive in an environment filled with enthusiasm which is why I feel my best at Christmas and therefore love celebrating it . That's why today I was delighted when my mum offered to take me and my best friend to the garden centre to see what Christmas decorations and gifts they had out ! I imagine we got a few funny looks as I skipped around squeaking with excitement in my best pair of cat ears whilst my best friend ( Looking the exact opposite of me in her Eminem top ) tried to stop me running into everyone ! So as this put me in such a positive mood I wanted to share that with you and show you a few bits and bobs that I'd found ! These are all from Melbicks Garden Centre and if you want to feel Christmassy, it's definitely the place to go :)

 



I absolutely loved the delicate, vintage effect of this wreath shaped decoration :)



I could definitely see this in some form of fairytale themed tree !



This tealight holder was so lovely I couldn't help thinking what a beautiful gift it would be !


Guys .... IT LIGHTS UP !!! :D



 
The moment I saw this wrapping paper all I could think was how similar it was to the Cath Kidston range and what a great, cheaper alternative it would be to their cute designs <3


This candle smelt amazing ! It was sweet and vanillary with a hint of cinnamon ( A scent which is often over powering and that puts some people off but the balance was just right ) it smelt, to me, like Christmas in my mums house with all her delicious home baking :)



These were just a few of my favourites that I just had to share with you because of what a great mood this lil bit of Christmas spirit put me in ! I'd love to hear what you love about Christmas and when do you start getting into the festive spirit, are you an early bird like me or do you prefer to save the excitement until other celebrations like Halloween and Bonfire night are over ?

If you're not quite ready for Christmas yet then don't worry ! I'm not making Christmas a regular feature on Don'tBurstMyBubbleXx just yet ! I've still got a really cute Bonfire night recipe coming up which I'm really excited to share with you :)

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

Instead of the normal hopeful notes I left some free smiles in a lift for  people to take with them :)

  4. Oh yeh I can just imagine you and your friend in cat ears and her in an Eminem top just dancing around town lol, the best way to be! It is pretty crazy that Christmas is just around the corner, I just adore the lights and when I still lived at home the 1st of December was tree decorating day *Well at least for me lol XD* Since leaving home, Christmas is usually a pretty low key and chilled out event for us now with just a get together of family and just hanging out for the day which is really nice. That wreath is so pretty and really brings out the essence and special feeling of what Christmas is! Ahhhh I always feel so inspired by your hopeful notes Marianne, they really brighten my day! You are just too awesome! <3

    1. Something in my heart just clicks into place when I see the stores getting festive ! Aww thank you Kim that's a really lovely thing for you to say and it made my day ! I need positivity and enthusiastic people to keep me going or I panic and get into a rut but if you're going to do anything, it's always worth doing it with enthusiasm :)
