This Week I #1

December 22, 2013

For a while now i've been wanting to do a weekly roundup sort of post and after seeing this type of post floating around the blogosphere for some time now, I thought around Christmas time would be the perfect time to start this. I will posting every Sunday, rounding up my week and giving you guys a little more insight into my life outside of blogging. 

 Started wrapping Christmas Presents - I've almost finished all of my Christmas shopping, just a few more bits to get but I wanted to get the majority of the wrapping out of the way. I've gone for a minimal feel with the brown paper, but added some cute detailing with the bows and ribbon.
Celebrated my blog's belated 1st birthday - Yes, I forgot my blog's first birthday on the 13th. I feel like such a bad blogger, but I had a little chocolate to celebrate and I want to thank every single one of you for a great first year in blogging.

 Won a giveaway -  I was at work when I found out that I had won Emma Louise's Benefit giveaway and it instantly made my day a whole lot better. I cannot wait to try this out!
Finished decorating the house for Christmas - Our Christmas tree has been up for just over a week now, but we've only just finished putting up all the Christmas decorations. I'm really getting excited for Christmas now!
Played around with my new Canon 1100D - I've recently got a new camera and i'm getting to grips with how it works, messing around with it's settings and modes but I took this really cute picture of my cat Annie, which I just had to share with you guys.
Attempted to start my dissertation - Let's just say my dissertation isn't quite where I wanted it to be as I wanted half of it done by Christmas, when I haven't actually started it.. oops. 

What have you been up to this week?
