Merry Christmas.

Blogmas is officially over but it doesn’t feel right not uploading a post today.

Today has been great, I’ve had a great time. I’ve said this numerous times but Christmas is my favourite time of year.

Christmas generates a lot of hype! For me at least I love the the excitement as Christmas is approaching. Although I love Christmas, I do feel incredibly deflated once Christmas is over.

It’s been great spending Christmas with Josh, I really hope that this time next year we will be living together. I’m ready to move out and have my own space. I want to have the chance to decorate my own place as well as the sense of achievement you get when you have your apartment and responsibilities.

I feel kind of ashamed to admit this, and I’m not really sure why as it’s not something I should feel badly about. This evening I started to feel really overwhelmed. I think I just became really tired and frustrated. I could feel my mood sinking and I just felt like I needed to escape.

I decided that I would take a bit of ‘me’ time and take some time to collect my thoughts. Afterwards I started to feel a bit better. I decided that I would write a quick journal post to write down how I’ve been feeling.

How has your Christmas been?

Christmas Eve.

Welcome to Blogmas day 24!

Today is Christmas Eve! How quickly has December gone?

Blogmas is coming to an end, I cannot tell you just how sad I am about this. I’ve really enjoyed writing a post everyday. I feel that it has really kept me focused and motivated. I will be definitely doing Blogmas again next year.

I’m not sure whether or not I will be writing a post tomorrow. However I will be sharing my Christmas day over on my Instagram, so be sure to head over there to follow my day!

This morning, Josh and I got up early and headed over to a local restaurant for breakfast then we took a nice walk back to his mum’s house.

Today has been pretty relaxed to be honest. His family loved the cupcakes I made so that made me feel happy.

I’m very nervous to give Josh his presents, I really hope he likes them!

What will you be doing this evening?

My Trip to Kent.

Welcome to Blogmas day 23!

Today has been crazy busy. I got on a train to London at 6:22am this morning.

This Christmas I will be spending the holiday with my boyfriend and his family. I’m heading down a couple of days early so I can spend some time with Josh and his family before all the Christmas madness fully happens.

Presents need to be wrapped and put under the tree. I need to give his family the cupcakes.

It’s going to be a busy but exciting few days! Josh’s siblings are all younger so they really get into the Christmas spirit.

How are you spending your Christmas?

My Winter Look.

Welcome to Blogmas day 20!

Winter days are for wrapping up warm and cozy. This is the look i’ve been rocking for the past month. Cozy scarf, Christmas jumper and curly(ish) hair.

I’m really getting excited for Christmas now. It’s really creeping up fast.

Over the next few days I have a couple of last things to do and then I will be officially ready for Christmas.

Tomorrow is my last day at work till the 30th December. I’m really looking forward to having some time off.

Are you already for Christmas?

Wrapping, Packing and Planning.

Welcome to Blogmas day 18!

Today I pretty much finished off wrapping everyones Christmas presents.

I’ve finished them pretty early to be honest as I don’t usually start till Christmas Eve. However, this year I will not have time this Christmas Eve. This year, I will be spending Christmas Eve baking and packing my bags to go and spend Christmas with my boyfriend and his family.

I really don’t want to forget anything so I thought it would be best to pack and wrap everything in advance. It’s one thing less to worry about when Friday comes around.

This week is going to be hectic. I have a to-do list as long as my arm to get done. I’m also working everyday which isn’t leaving me much time to get things done. Friday, I have therapy and after that is when I will start to get everything ready to go.

Where are you spending Christmas this year? Are you all ready for Christmas?

Christmas MUST reads.

IMG_1226.JPG

Welcome to Blogmas day 15.

I’ve really been into reading this year. I thought it would only be right to get some cool Christmassy books to read this year.

I actually read ‘The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily’ last Christmas and I loved it. I’ve read it again this year too. I have a feeling that it’s going to become a book that I read every year.

I always picked up:

  • Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery
  • One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill
  • Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair

I’m currently making my way through these at the minute. I’m loving them so far. I think I’m going to make it part of my Christmas tradition that I buy new Christmas books every year.

It really puts me in a festive mood!

Have you read any Christmas books? Any recommendations?

The Perfect Lush Bath This Christmas.

Welcome back to Blogmas day 11!

Every year for as long as I can remember I have always looked forward to seeing the new (and old) products that Lush bring out around Christmas time.

When I was away in South Korea a couple of years ago, I was really disappointed, firstly because my apartment didn’t have a bath. Secondly, because Lush was so expensive in Korea!

So now that I’m back, I can fully indulge in what might be Lush’s best Christmas products year yet! I am so in love with some of the things they have brought out this year.

I mean, how beautiful do these products look?

I know that I’m going to be having plenty of Lush baths this Christmas.

How about you? Which Lush products are you loving this Christmas?

Festive Nails.

Welcome back to Blogmas day 10.

I don’t know about you but I’m so excited for Christmas! We’ve only got 14 more days to go!

Today I want to share with you the nail varnishes that I picked up from Superdrug for this Christmas. Now, unfortunately, I work in a place where I’m not able to wear nail polish to work. Therefore when I have a few days off from work, I really make an effort to paint my nails at any chance I get.

I’ve really been looking forwards for shops to bring out their Christmas ranges of Christmas nail colours. I’m in love with these two!

These are my two Christmas colours for this year!

What colour nails will you be wearing this Christmas?

Christmas Shopping.

Welcome to Blogmas day 9.

I’m about three quarters through my Christmas shopping now. Over the next couple of days I do need to go online and order some last minute things. Other than that, I’m pretty much finished!

One of the things I love most about Christmas is the atmosphere. People just seem so much happier. The shops are much busier. There are lots of shops promoting new gifts ideas. And, of course we cannot forget about stopping off for a cheeky coffee in Starbucks for one of their new Christmas drinks.

I know that ordering gifts online is so much more convenient, however I do like to go into the shops the majority of time. I like looking at things properly. I like to take my time when it comes to picking gifts for people. Also, there is a heightened chance that you will spot something great that you weren’t originally looking for. But when it comes to Christmas, is that necessarily a bad thing? Haha!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?

My Christmas Starbucks Order.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Welcome back to Blogmas day 8!

The only thing I love more than Christmas, is coffee. I’m obsessed. I couldn’t wait for the moment that Starbucks realised their Christmas drinks list. Also, are their take out cups just adorable?

I have group therapy every Friday morning, and as a treat for going I always buy myself a Starbucks drink afterwards.

My favourite drink is the Toffee Nut Latte. It is beautiful! It’s just the right blend of coffee mixed with Christmas, just perfect!

My current order is a large Toffee Nut Latte! Yes large, because it’s treat! Haha.

I would also recommend the fudge hot chocolate too. It’s also great!

What are your favourite drinks from coffee shops?
