Keep Calm and Carry On

It may indeed be coming up to the festive season but many of the lovely people I've been following seem to be up to their eyeballs with work, studies or life in general. And so, having ordered my new, and very apt poster (it shall be taking pride of place next to my desk as a reminder....) and a couple of other last Christmas gifts I thought I'd put together a little list of Blogosphere pick-me-ups to help get us all through.

1. 12 Days of Christmas by Alex at Odd Socks and Pretty Frocks
 Alex is running a very generous and lovely give away that she's put together herself. all you need to do is leave her a comment on any of the posts that you'd like to win the contents of. So far the prizes are looking gorgeous, so you have nothing to lose and quite possibly something lovely to gain!

2. 12 Days of Christmas by Jen at A Little Bird Told Me
 Jen at A Little Bird is also running a 12 day give away. I've already got my eye on some personalized pieces from Stolen Thunder from day one! Again you quite simply need to leave a comment on the post and all the prizes are open until 11 December. You'll also find some special offers available so even if you're not lucky enough to win, you can still treat yourself.

3. The Ultimate Gift Guide by Ayden at Little Blog of Horrors
 Ayden is on a Blogger challenge with next and she's currently giving you a gift guide a day for the usual suspects you might need to buy a gift for. So far I've had a helping hand with finding something for my Dad and there have been ideas for Mum and Gran too. You can also give Ayden a helping hand by using the links on her blog if you decide on something she's posted about, not much to ask if she's sorted the one relative/friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/sibling who has everything for you.

4. Bargain Advent Guide by Susie at Bargainista Fashionista
 Susie is giving a little gem every day for Advent. Whether it be revolutionary make-up or discount events at a favourite shop, there's sure to be something to catch your eye over the coming days. I don't have an advent calender and I really really don't need to be eating the chocolate so Bargainista Fashionista is giving me my daily fashion fix and a countdown.

5. Christmas Giveaway by Blair at Blair an a Budget
 Blair has a very generous giveaway going on right now. The haul is fairly substantial with items including Gogo Philip Jewellery, Models Own Polish and Nail Pen and lots of other lovely goodies. All you have to do is comment on the post. It really is that simple.

So there we have it, the Fashion Junkie Keep Calm and Carry On pick me up. To all of you, keep warm, safe and as stress free as possible. And if all else fails....

I feel I may need one of these more than a Keep Calm and Carry on mantra....

Thanks hun! Glad you like the prizes on offer - I'm feeling pangs of inadequacy when looking at the stuff Jen's offering!
