It’s very nearly the last weekend before Christmas – eek! If you’ve finished your Christmas shopping (lucky you!) but need a hand with pimping up your presents, the lovely Making Things Club are on hand to help. This week their pop-up shop in Cabot Circus has been running wrapping workshops, and there are slots available tomorrow (Friday 21st) throughout the day. The event is free but booking is a must – email email@example.com or pop into the shop to book your place.
This weekend is your last chance to visit the Bath Christmas market before it closes on Sunday. I visited it with a few friends at the start of the month and it was heaving, so I recommend arriving early and catching the train unless you want to face looking for a parking space with hundreds of other Christmas shoppers! Stalls include foodie treats, Elise Belle jewellery, festive decorations, art, homewares and more.
Have I missed any other local events? What are you up to this weekend?
Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…
- Getting Christmassy in Bath. This post is a little late because I spent the day in Bath eating sushi, wandering around the Christmas markets and making a start on my Christmas shopping. At least, that was the plan – in actual fact I spent far too much time and money in Bloomsbury and The Makery, oops!
- There are lots of exciting posts coming up and this week I posted about the launch of Dr Martens new flagship store in Bristol’s Broadmead. I had a cracking time and will be sharing photos of my shiny new boots very soon…
- This week I finally cashed in the Bordeaux Quay vouchers that Mr Ship-Shape bought for me last Christmas and spent Thursday evening learning to prepare and cook fish, including hake, mussels and mackerel. I’ve never gutted a fish before and while I can’t say it was an enjoyable process, it wasn’t as hard as I thought, plus the end result was delicious.
