Things I've been loving lately

I love these kind of posts so thought I'd let you know what I've been loving lately!

My Mum sent me this in the post during November, and it was the best piece of post I've ever received. It is the Yankee Candle advent calendar, which has a different Christmas tea light for each day of December, and a bigger surprise on Christmas eve. I have been burning one a day whilst doing Uni work and it's been the perfect accompaniment. It's definitely a good idea for someone who doesn't like a chocolate advent calendar too.. I have both!

Christmas cards - I've received two Christmas cards so far but one of them is from my friend Josie (go check out her blog). She makes cards herself and has an etsy shop which I think is just fab! I think the money goes to a Cystic Fibrosis charity and it's free delivery, so there is no excuse no to have a cheeky look! I'm definitely going to keep this card in my scrapbook after Christmas, because it's just so good!

Last week, on black Friday I think, my Uni was having a half price poster sale so I picked this up to remind me to save for my trip next year! I really do love it though because it's quirky and has all the landmarks on it. I think after I've been, I'll put it up at home as a reminder of what I did :)

And finally, I know I'm a little late to the party, but I've been loving Orange is the new black! I started season one last week and now I'm half way through season two! Nobody tell me how it finishes because I hate spoilers, but for anyone who hasn't watched it, just start. You won't regret it (unless you have a dissertation to write.. you might then!).
