Geek Life Lately 8

Hi friends, here I am ready for another Geek Life Lately! Are you getting into the spirit of Christmas yet? I’m feeling quite festive, especially since my last blog post about my fave Christmas songs!

Selfie Stick Weirdo

One of my birthday presents was a selfie stick. I’m not one for taking a lot of selfies, but I really like it to steady my iPhone when I film Youtube videos and take the occasional photo of E and I instead of asking someone else to take it, or having a short arm selfie. Where I live, you don’t see many of these selfie sticks, so at first it was a little bit embarrassing but now I’m not too bothered. 🙂

Shop til You Drop

On Cyber Monday I ordered a few goodies. One of said goodies is a retro style TMNT t-shirt which I’m super excited to wear, from Jukupop. I also got some new makeup bits from Superdrug.

In Primark earlier this week I scored 2 awesome Christmas t-shirts, one of them has Christmas puddings printed all over it, the other is a snowflake pattern. Sometimes it’s too warm to wear Christmas jumpers here. (Not bragging)

Primark Christmas Goodies

At the checkout in Primark, I noticed the card machine offered contactless pay which my new card has and I’ve never tried it before so of course, I passed my card over the machine. The girl on the checkout must have thought I’d never used my card before because she was all like ‘No you have to insert the card here like this’.

I felt so stupid, I was asking about the contactless pay and she just looked at me like I was a weirdo haha. I’m sure the other people in the queue thought the same.

E and I chose a new Christmas decoration for this year, a glass heart with lights, only to get home, open it and find it was shattered. 🙁 It’s so pretty too!

Daddy Yankee Candles

To prepare for the arrival my parents who are staying for Christmas, we’ve been getting rid of all kinds like the old hoover and boxes. A trip to the recycling point was just what we needed.

To make the house feel lovely, I’ve also been burning some of my new Yankee Candle melts. Snow in Love, is a nice fresh smell with something else added in the mix and my new favourite Honey and Spice is really warm and festive, perfect for Christmas although I would still like to try out Snowflake Cookie.

Shivery Chihuahua

The season has changed and evenings are a lot cooler than usual here, so I was inspired to draw a little Chihuahua ‘Shivery Chi’ on the fridge door. He looked cold so I drew him wearing a jumper.

I also finished decorating the Christmas tree, hurray! It’s a Nightmare before Christmas, Disney, Barbie mashup. I’ll post a pic when I have a good photo of it lit up, so keep your eyes peeled.
