There was a time, not long ago, where I'd turn my nose up at swing dresses, smocks and the like. Although I had a few in my wardrobe, I found them to be unflattering, and so they generally went unloved. Recently though, I'm loving that they're just something a little different, even if they do whisper 'maternity.' Plus, in the run up to Christmas, I could probably do with the extra forgiving room anyway. I can blame my food baby on the dress, ha! This one was about £10 from eBay, and is pretty good for layering too!

I'm off Christmas shopping with my mum today, and I know it'll be a nightmare - I can't really stand super busy shopping centres! Theres a bright side though, H. Samuel have a 25% discount off all watches until Tuesday 3rd, so I'm planning on treating myself to a discounted Casio watch, and maybe I'll pick something up for Dan too. Honestly, I'm so bad at Christmas shopping. For every gift I buy, I tend to end up buying something for myself too, oops! I should probably stick to online shopping really...

What're you doing this weekend?
Have you opened your advent calendar?

    1. Yeaaah, hope you love it! You'll have to let me know how you get on! I love Mavala, probably my favourite types! Some of the lighter colours need 2 coats but I think thats fairly standard :) x
