Have a DIY Christmas

As Christmas approaches, life as a student hits panic mode (as in  OH MY GOD I HAVE NO MONEY) and the weeks seem to fly by as your time passes with 'how many weeks do I have left until my dissertation  is due in' It is a tad tricky to think of effective christmas treats.
In our girly student house we have decided to make each other home made advent calendars. I will warn you now, if you decide to do this it may sound like a better idea that it works out to be. With a £20 budget and 25 days to fill some serious research needed to go into finding a way of making presents for each day that are....well rubbish.
So of course I hit Pinterest. 
If you don't have the funds to be able to add a gift for everyday, follow this example and fill your advent calendar with little notes or recipes. 

For the crafty types, get out your sewing machine and rustle up some cute little santa hats or stockings as holders for your treats.

For a cute vintage looking calendar, use the good old brown…

The least fashionable Christmas yet....

As much as this will strike fear into the hearts of many people, Christmas is coming. It's official I just watched the coca cola Christmas advert and Ant and Dec are chasing round a gingerbread man for Morissons (Yes true signs of Crimbo) So as the festive season approaches, what is it that everyone is thinking about?
Not ordering a turkey that weighs more than a large dog, not writing lists of presents to buy your great great aunty who you think you're related to via marriage, not even what you are going to buy your pets (we all do it)
But what we are thinking about is the ultimate Christmas jumper.
So prepare yourselves as I have found some of the best cheesy jumpers around.
(Sorry Jess I had to) Boohoo sells this...different jumper for £18

There you go, I question if high street stores can get any cheesier and it is BRILLIANT. So get your friends together or collect all the cheesy jumpers you can find, crack open the mulled wine and star…
