Of course, you will all have heard of Cath Kidston. Be it in the form of a tote bag, a duvet cover or a pencil case, I'm fairly certain that at one time or another we've all had our mitts on something featuring one of Cath Kidston's famous floral prints. (In fact, when I was at school a Cath Kidston pencil case was the only pencil case to be seen with.)
So to gee us all up, Cath Kidston have created 'All Wrapped Up'; a charming, funny little festive film made in order to help us all out this Christmas in regards to the tricky old business of present buying. In the short animation (complete with alarm-enducing banana - don't ask, just watch) we're not only shown what happens in the unfortunate event a present falls into the wrong hands, but also just how easy it can be to find something perfect to put under the tree for everyone this Christmas, be it Mum, Dad, Sibling, Grandparents, that rather awkward office Secret Santa and even the family pooch.
So, I hope you enjoy this little film. Please do let me know if you find it helpful, and if you'd like to see the musings of others, use and take a look at the hashtag #XmasWrappedUp.

Your eyes aren't deceiving you. What you see before you is a selection of photographs from a good few months ago, featuring that large, fiery ball often referred to as The Sun. Oh, THE SUN. Where has he gone? With the
evenings AFTERNOONS getting darker, I felt the need for a little escapism. These photos, I'll admit - are not particularly recent - they are from my summer trip to Paris. I intended to share these photos with you at the time, as the outfit is a particular warm weather favourite of mine. As I gaze out of my kitchen window into the black 5pm abyss (HOW IS IT DARK AT 5PM?) it makes me yearn for a lighter, less weatherly-miserable time (not entirely confident that weatherly is a word but we'll go with it.) If I say 'hashtag throwback' does that make it ok?
As I've bombarded you with so many photos, I won't witter on - on this occasion I shall let the outfit and city speak for itself. Nosing through other people's holiday snaps or just enjoying photos of pretty destinations is something I love to do. There's just so much colour, beauty and incredible architecture in Paris, so despite these being less than current I hope you enjoy them nonetheless.
