It’s the most wonderful time, of the year! Can you believe that it’s a week until Christmas – complete madness, right? So, within the midst of last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping and genuine just flapping – remember to take the time to enjoy the things we love about Christmas, and keep the Christmas spirit alive – and no I don’t mean the Gin.(yes I do)
SNOW GLOBES //
I absolutely adore snow globes – completely in love with them. I find them so Christmassy and simplistic that I have to buy one when I see one. There is something so soothing about shaking up a snow globe & winding it up. This year’s addition is below – I am yet to name the penguin on the left, as the right one has been called Barnaby ( please post in comments names and suggestions)
Go and make yourself an ultimate Christmas playlist with all your faves – not everyone else’s but just yours so you can rock out whenever you can – here are a quick one of some of my faves ( excluding the classics like Slade)
FAIRY LIGHTS //
Okay, so I know nearly everyone has their tree up now but in my opinion, you can never have too many fairy lights. Then again, this is coming from a girl who has them all year round especially on my dressing table. I’ve currently got some star shaped ones wrapped around my headboard & it definitely makes me feel Christmassy (especially because I’m working night shifts over Christmas)
Working night shifts, I’ve found it really difficult to try and get into the Christmas spirit this year – although we do listen to copious amounts of Christmas music at work. As I spend most of my day trying to sleep – I invested in some Christmas bedding which completely did the trick. Not expensive and very effective ❤
Candles are life. They’re so so amazing my favourite one I’ve ever gotten was a blueberry muffin one – which was just fab because I could light it in the morning and essentially wake up to the smell of freshly baked blueberry muffins. A festive cinnamon or gingerbread candle will certainly get you in the Christmas spirit.
Who doesn’t love tea? Well – me for starters, I’m not a fan of an everyday tea, I really don’t like it – much to my boyfriend’s disappointment (means he has to make his own tea). However, the one tea I have been drinking recently is ginger tea. It is literally the best tea in the world – it just makes me feel like Christmas, it’so warm and firey it’s just fantastic on the cold winter nights!
Hope you all are having a lovely run up to Christmas – thanks for reading. Don’t forget, I also have a facebook page – which I would greatly appreciate if you gave it a wee like
