So it’s finally the festive period and if anyone knows me they will know that I’m literally a walking Mrs Clause. I get so excited about every little thing christmasy. This year will be the best one so far as it our first Christmas as our little family and ironically Taliyah turns 6 months on Christmas Day!
I can’t even believe how quickly the year has gone and how blessed this year has been for me. So to get in the festive mood I thought it would be great to get personalised Christmas tree ornaments.Taliyah is such a beautiful, unique name that it doesn’t come in the name section but luckily the store had an option which was blank that we can personalise. The ornaments were from Toys r Us and they cost about £2-4 they also have a range of personalised stockings and baubles.
Today being Dec 3rd also marks 6 months since we got engaged as well as it being our monthly anniversary. Yes we celebrate our anniversary monthly and we spent our anniversay taking baby T to see santa for the first time. We went to DreamPlace in Westfield White City. After a week of Taliyah recovering from a cough (my poor baby), plenty of nasal drops, nasal suckers she was so excited to be out of the house. The staff were nice enough to let us sit inside whilst we waited as it was too cold to be queuing. It was a fun experience and the “rocket ride” to see Santa was bright, bold and big which is what awakened all of Ts senses, she enjoyed it and meeting Santa was the icing on the cake. Not the usual baby that cries she was happy and very attentive. We got to take family photos with and we got to chose how we had them displayed.
I find that when I go out now I end up looking for stuff for Taliyah I mean babies clothes are super cute how can you not. Weather appropriate we found this cute Liberty Print Chapka hat from Jacadi. It’s lined with faux fur to keep bubs head nice and warm. I love the ear flaps to keep her tiny ears nice and cosy.
I treated myself to a makeup must have from Mac, the Fix + prep and prime skin refresher/finishing mist.It’s definitely my go to product and I love how it just keeps my face fresh and keep my makeup in place. I’ve ordered so many makeup goodies and I cannot wait for them to arrive so I can put my mini artistic skills to work.
All in all the day was amazing spending it with my two favourite people, couldn’t have a better anniversary/monthly date.
