1. This week I was feeling very festive and crafty so I made Christmas outfits for my three Blythe dolls. And I decorated a little tree for them. And gave them Santa sacks. I couldn't help it, I LOVE Christmas!

2. I tried one of the many nail polishes from my Ciate Mini Mani Month calendar called Dangerous Affair.  It's a really nice berry red but it's a little bit thin so I had to do about 3-4 coats. I'll let you see them all in one post soon.

3. I went on a road trip with some friends to Edinburgh this weekend. More on that soon too but I'll give you some spoilers now! There was a Christmas market in Princes Street Gardens and I had a massive pretzel! Yum! (spot the nails!)

4. Every time I go to Edinburgh I like to visit my friend Harvey Nichols. Well, less of a friend than a slightly judgemental old acquaintance who makes me wish I dressed better! I bought this BCBG Max Azria enamel turn-lock ring which is pretty funky and only £27, but I'll wait until the Boxing Day sales for the rest!

5. I also made my first purchase at a MAC counter. I gave the woman a random string of words (moisturising, lipstick, daywear, sheer, berry) and she gave me a Hot Tahiti lipstick which was spot on! Brilliant! Then I asked for a blush to match and she got that first time too! Bingo!

6. One of the main reasons for our journey was to see The Hobbit in IMAX 3D. It was my first IMAX film and it was ace, both the IMAX and the film!

7. Just before The Hobbit, we got a 9 minute Star Trek: Into Darkness preview. No spoilers here, but it looks ACE! That'll definitely be worth going back to IMAX to see.

8. Of course, a trip to Edinburgh wouldn't be complete without going to see the pandas (and all the other ace animals) at Edinburgh Zoo. This is Yang Guang (Sunshine) looking a bit bored!

9. We don't do a Secret Santa at my work, so when I saw that Magasin was doing a lucky dip, I figured that could be my Secret Santa! I got these lovely cross-stitched Navajo-inspired hairslides along with badge with my initial on!

Because next Monday is Christmas Eve and the following Monday is Hogmanay I fully expect to have lots of ace things to do and I'm going to take a break from ♥ This Week's Loves ♥ until 7th January, when I'll probably do a massive one! I'll still be doing other posts over the festive period, so keep an eye on your inbox/blog reader/Facebook/Twitter etc or subscribe below to make sure you don't miss Tiny Bird Heart ♥!
