My Christmas wrapping theme | #jaidemas

You hear a lot of chat about how important Instagram themes are to people. Well, having a wrapping theme at Christmas time is just as important to me which, as you can see is very traditional.

Brown paper has always been up there with what I feel is the nicest way to wrap presents. There's just something about it that looks good (and very Pinterest worthy). One year I actually bought parcel paper from Wilko and parcel tags and the overall look was nice, but felt there was something missing. Then I stumbled across these beauties in Asda and immediately knew that little red trees on my brown paper was what I was missing. It's just perfect and great quality paper too, actually can't stand thin wrapping paper that just feels cheap and just never looks nice. This holds shape well, looks festive and traditional with am up to date twist.

Even though I like the brown wrapping paper, a lot, I felt I needed something to break it up whilst remaining with the traditional theme I had going on. Knowing that either red or green would go well, I grabbed a few rolls of the HoHoHo wrapping paper which, correct me if you disagree, but it looks very traditional Coca Cola esk. I thought it really complimented the brown paper and helps the white ribbon to really stand out.


For those people I know I'll end up getting a nice tipple for, I tend to head straight to TKMaxx for gift bags. They always have a good selection of individual ones as I like everyone to have a different one. You've got to be careful when buying separate bags as it can creep up on you and be a little bit of a shock. 

Every year I find myself sticking to the brown paper thing, however, adding new elements to it every time the festive season is with us. 

I'd love to know if you have a wrapping theme and what your theme is this year.
xoxo

  1. I absolutely adore brown paper presents! It's something I'm thinkin about doing next year as I didn't want to do anything Pinterest worthy this year as I've got too much going on with my blog anyway with so much different content that's not Christmassy whatsoever! Love This post for Jaidemas!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
