Well what a weekend my kittens!
I have been ‘Super woman’ this weekend and shoved together a whole lot of love, fashion, parenting and glamour pussing into one huge ball of success. (For some reason I wanted to type ‘Disco’ then?)
I’ve got a very busy December which is going to be filled with all of the above, the fun, the fashion, love, family, life, glamour pussing, blogging, work, play, holidaying, Christmas, Mummy hood, entertaining…and diamantes of course..that my head is a rather glamourous bundle of confusion. I’m working hard, so I know i’ll get there. When you put your heart and soul into things you can only get GOOD RESULTS.
The thing about having a very busy December is the simple fact that it makes the end of November (the preparatory month) HECTIC. But whatever, i’ve slipped on my heels and conquered it like a champion. One day i’ll have minions to do it all for me. 🙂 However, TODAY it’s all on me. Luckily I’ve stuck to what I love, meaning a days work feels like BLISS. Don’t do things you hate. It kills ya soul.
So on Saturday i took the kiddies to play ‘Christmas’ at The Frenchgate Centre in Doncaster. Now, you all know here a lot..every weekend in fact and well it’s because it is the town that birthed me and at the same time a town that I have fond affection for. I spent much of my youth with my Mum shopping at the Frenchgate centre. Shopping was what we did and Frenchgate was where we did it. So my heart has give that place a very happy slice of nostalgic memory. Went there this weekend. It was INSANE!
We did Santa AGAIN. Ruby was adamant that it had to happen again after peering over a white picket Christmas fence like she was little orphan Annie.
It led to this…
..which was the queue.
Which led to this..
Dodgy pic. But once she got to the front of the queue and the magic elf came out to greet her and take her inside, she decided to be TERRIFIED and run away in the other direction. She’s good like that.
So it looks like she’s all happy and posing for a picture.,.but I was actually sat next to her holding her down and MAKING HER SMILE. (Nice aren’t I! 🙂 They had to crop me out of it because it just looked wrong. 🙂 We got the picture put in a key ring, hence why it’s dodgy looking.
Then to my dismay Santa, out of all the ‘for £14 gifts in the world’ got her this..
Now, I’m not being funny or anything, but isn’t that the UGLIEST LOOKING BABY DOLL you have EVER SEEN. It looks like a drunken old man, who eyes up young girls in a bunny suit. That’s what Santa gave her! I just looked at it and had to take a picture because it was hideous.
That toy is the awfullest looking thing I have ever seen! £14..I don’t think so. Junior dribbled the whole way through it and well Santa gave him a book. He’s 5 months old. Maybe they got them mixed up and Junior should’ve had the drunken, old man, bunny baby? Bottom line, Santa shouldn’t get confused, he’s magic AND he shouldn’t be so pricey. I’m MUM, I have to visit him millions of times. He is burning a heart shaped HOLE in my clutch.
Great day. I skimmed through Topshop, H& M, New look, through the stalls, through Debenhams…almost every retailer that would have me. I loved every living moment of it. It’s just comforting and makes me feel chipper. Just being around it all gives me a buzz. I’m naturally a girl who adores to shop and one who has a definite weakness for all things beauty and (even though you can’ t tell) fashionable. 🙂 I was in my element! Life was great!
I did all of this whilst being mum, darting into every toy store we passed, feeding young mouths and taking on work emails as I strutted, on my phone.
The giveaway work is difficult yet brilliant, It’s all going super well and i’m really proud of myself for being so organised. 🙂 It’s hectic though and a lot of work. I was constantly having to text, email and phone call, whilst my heels tottered the Frenchgate and my heart cared for the bambinos. MAYHEM.
..Oh and add Christmas Shoppers to that and you have hell. But anyway during my smoosh around I decided that alongside all the gifts that certain brands, companies and businesses etc have donated…and alongside the gifts that i will be finding for you at The Clothes Show. I wanted to buy gifts for the giveaway that are some of MY personal faves, to make it all very Wunnafied.
I now have a list longer than Santa’s…………… *fill in the blank.* So next week, I will be back in every shopping centre swiping, cashing and grabbing every bit of luxury that I can find for you, from my own pocket. (Which is also what I will be doing at The Clothes Show.)
I can’t wait.
The giveaway is going to be spectacular and I truly do adore being Santa for you. (Even though I pretty much want to keep everything instead of giving it away. 🙂 )
I will tell you now that there’ stop brands, luxury brands, start up brands and brands that I personally cannot live without. Your December is going to rock here at chrissiewunna.com.
I’m teaching you the art of PURRFECTION and doing it with a giveaway.
I’m really looking forward to covering The Clothes Show live and i hope to see you all there. GRAB YOUR TICKETS NOW!! I will be there EVERY DAY!
Oh and don’t forget that I have my own beauty line out next year. I’m very excited about that tooo. It’s all busy-busy, but i’m loving every second. I’m finally feeling like a success.
So, I’ll love you and leave you, as I’m about to retrieve my son…
Have a jolly Sunday evening and freshen up for the morning ahead.
