This week has been stressful to the max with deadlines etc. so I do apologise that this isn't a very long post!

In my Marketing Communications module this week we were looking at adverts which have been banned by the ASA (Advertising Standards Agency). Each person in the seminar brought in an example and I cannot believe how shocking some of them were! How do they even get produced in the first place?!

The example I took along can be seen here - hilarious, but totally inappropriate! Other examples included Pot Noodle and KFC.

So talking of adverts, Christmas has well and truly taken over the telly! Has anyone seen this advert by Harvey Nichols?

I am really not sure what to think of it! I mean it is good, and I understand it but is the message right for this time of the year? Surely we should be giving to those we love and cherish rather than spending on ourselves?!

I don't know about you but I am thoroughly looking forward to the Christmas break now! Final year is by far the toughest yet and I am ready for some Christmasy food, drink and merriment!

Ciao x

p.s Anyone got their Christmas decorations up yet? We have! :D
