Weekend Wonderings



Well, ok. Not yet.

But I’ll tell you what, it’s very nearly time for advent calendars. Oh yes.

But this year, dear readers, we’re asking you to join in and do something a little bit different to the usual delicious bite of chocolate each morning (although you can definitely do this AND have your own chocolate advent calendar – we would NEVER get between you and chocolate).

But back to the point. The lovely Anna, from the even lovelier Skin and Blister Blog, is setting up a hashtag challenge.

Let me explain: it’s like a virtual Adent calendar with something christmassy to do each day. Each day it will be tweeted about and blogged about on Skin and Blister, and we’ll all get super excited and more christmassy as time goes on. Sounds good, no?

I’m going to do it. I think it will be an awesome way of getting to know more of you brilliant lot, and also help get me in the christmas mood (getting into the christmas mood while wearing flip-flops and eating ice-cream takes some doing, let me tell you).


The tasks are all pretty simple to do, and yet brilliantly christmasy, and I’m pretty sure will get even the most scrooge-like of you feeling better about christmas.

So there you have it girls – who’s in?
