Hi everyone! As promised, another Christmas mani cos it’s still December 😉 Today I have a lazy mani to show you. I say it’s lazy because it’s just a glitter topper over a base colour. Anyone can do this! These polishes were both gifts. Let me just get straight to it. if
Finally! I got a Christmas tree! On Sunday we went to Sonstraal dam for a picnic and to be harassed by ducks and geese. Sheesh. Those ducks and geese certainly are very comfortable with people.

Oh, Christmas tree 🙁 Last year when we took our relatively expensive Christmas tree down, we decided to chuck it as the branches were no longer properly attached to the main stem and were drooping and made the whole tree look horrible. We bought this tree the year I was pregnant with Elijah (2009), so
Merry Happy December! December time is one of my favourite times of year.

…is up! I put it up on Saturday. People think I am an absolute nut job because I put my Christmas tree up really early. Shurrup. I LOVE Christmas.
