Our November In Pictures

Wow. Can we just say - HOW is it December already?

It doesn't seem like a year since we last heard the sleigh bells ring and leapt like over-excited kids into our Christmas jumpers. But December is here, and the countdown to the festive season has well and truly started. Hurrah for advent calendars!

Although November whizzed by, it was a fantastic month for the IAIT team. Sam enjoyed a lot of birthday pampering and Teresa was showered with wonderful beauty products to test and try out.

Oh, and a lot of shopping was enjoyed by us both. Don't act surprised...

For those of you who like a good nosey, here is Sam's November in pictures. Enjoy!

I can hardly believe it's December already! This week, I am 25 weeks pregnant and time is just whizzing by. My second baby boy will be here before I know it. Speaking of which, I'm finally starting to get a bump...

November is my birthday month and, for once, I enjoyed some pampering. The lovely ladies at LWPR even arranged for me to have a blow-dry. I need a glam-over, trust me...

One of our favourite beauty brands, Ancienne Ambiance, posted this wonderful piece of advice on Twitter. I'm planning on sticking it to my wall.

While he has been able to walk for ages, baby boy number one finally got the hang of it. Now, there's no stopping him and he's taken to racing off in the supermarkets and shops. He takes after his mummy, clearly...

With the walking comes plenty of trouble. Zayn loves nothing more than to play with my make-up - just seconds after this picture, he decided to smear my blusher all over my beautiful Egyptian cotton sheets. 

Our town's Christmas lights were finally switched on. Huzzah! Zayn - who loves lights more than anything else in the world - had a great evening out with his Nan. 

Here we all are wrapped up warm and ready to enjoy the lights switch-on - and the fireworks!

As ever, I have been spending my pennies this month. I've mostly been buying Christmas pressies (can I take a moment to feel smug and say my shopping is ALL done?), but I managed a few treats for myself too. Here's my favourite bargain buy - an ASOS beanie at £7!

And my new favourite purchase, a Markus Lupfer jewelled jumper which I managed to find for half-price. Bargain!
