December 'Christmas' Favourites

Hey everyone :)

Can you believe December is nearly over? It's nearly 2015!

I've got quite a few favourites this month - some old and some very new (as in I just got them :P )

december favourites

Nintendo 3DS: Pokemon X - I honestly don't know any kid who doesn't like Pokemon. It was popular throughout my childhood - what with the shows, the cards, the games (I could go on) so it makes sense that I would still love it now (just not so much). Last year I got a Nintendo 3DS for the second time (I got one when they first came out but sold it) and Pokemon X. I played it non-stop then decided to take a break. Recently I decided to start playing it again. Let's just say I've not been sleeping much lately ...

Sex & The City Complete Boxset - I've recently had another sore tooth (turns out if was an infection) and I went into Tesco for Ibuprofen to see if that would help numb the pain until I went to the dentist. I happened to walk past the DVD aisle and saw lots of boxsets on sale/special - this was around Black Friday time (I think it was the Saturday or Sunday after it) and the entire Sex & the City was there for £20 - DEAL!

The Jelly Bean Factory 1.4KG Tub - A Christmas present from the boyfriend! I have a bit of an obsession with jelly beans - this tub is massive and lasts me about 6 months. You can get them on Amazon.

Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men - I bought this for myself during the Black Friday event. I've worn this scent for about 4/5 years now and I love it. I can't remember where I found it or who I smelt it on and then decided I wanted it ... To describe the smell - in the first few seconds its quite a sharp smell and then as it settles its woody & bergamoty smell. Simply amazing!

Jamie's (Oliver) Comfort Food - I have been going on for months that I wanted this book and I kept saying I'll get it eventually or when it came down in the sale. But I got it for Christmas!! Which is so exciting as I really want to try all the recipes now. I'm going to possibly make a resolution for New Year and say I'll do one recipe a week or maybe a month or something.

Zoella's (Zoe Sugg) Girl Online - I love this book and have read it twice. It is aimed at teenage girls - but who cares. I still enjoyed it. I also did a blog about it - which you can check out here - it explains about the book.

Dolce & Gabbana 'The One' for Men - I have a bad habit of getting whiffs of other guys scents/smells and then I have to find out what they're wearing and then I end up buying it. This lovely scent was on one of my old school friends - Euan - I remember sitting next to him in a pub and it was this amazing spicy, citrusy, old smell and I couldn't stop smelling him (I know a little weird) and I asked him what it was and he told me ... I think I got it for Christmas that year.
