The Christmas Wishlist

After writing up and selecting gifts for my Christmas Gift Guide, I started to think about what I wanted for Christmas this year. My mum is actually pretty good at buying presents that she’ll know I’ll like and it is always nice to have a surprise but I do like to pick out some things that I would like to see under the tree so this year I have asked for the products that have been sitting in my wishlist for a while now!

Tanya Burr 12 Days Advent Calendar – What Was Inside?

Gone are the days where you would struggle picking what chocolate advent calendar you want for the month of December in your local supermarket. Would you go for the Santa Claus one, or perhaps the reindeer one? And then, it got even harder a few years back when chocolate brands started to introduce their own versions, did you want the Malteesers version, or maybe even the Lindt one?

The Christmas Jumper with Boohoo and Teenage Cancer …

Over the last few years, Christmas jumpers have well and truly come into their own and it has become a Christmas tradition to hunt down what jumper you are going to be sporting this year. Will you be going for something jokey? Perhaps something that lights up? Has tinsel on? Maybe even something that plays music? The possibilities are truly endless and last year I wore a bright green jumper with a reindeer on it alongside some flashing lights, just for the extra measure you know. But this year, may I introduce you my 2017 jumper from Boohoo and whilst it doesn’t light up, it’s a little bit special (have a scroll down to see why!)

Getting In The Christmas Spirit

Putting up the Christmas decorations is probably my favourite Christmas activity, other than eating the turkey roast, of course! There is something just so lovely about completely transforming the house into this warm, cosy, softly-lit place that just oozes comfort. For me, our house never looks better than when it does at Christmas. The tree twinkling with it’s white and gold decorations, with fairy lights sparkling all around our living room. The fireplace always looks so much better with the stockings above it, just waiting patiently to be filled on Christmas Eve. Winter themed tealights flickering away as the fire roars, filling the room with much-needed warmth for when we gather to watch A Christmas Carol.

The Christmas Tag 2017

For today’s Blogmas post, I wanted to, of course, keep it Christmassy but also fun! A while back I was going through our huge box of childhood photo’s and found some old Christmas ones from when I was a little girl. I couldn’t resist scanning them in and adding them to this post to make it extra Christmassy and nostalgic!

The Winter Skincare

I have mentioned the importance of switching up your skincare a little bit as the season changes. Different weather and different factors mean your skin requires different ingredients and skincare products to help keep it balanced and healthy! When the colder weather creeps in (anyone else wrapped up in a million layers today?!), I like to focus on hydration, the cold and the wind makes my skin bitterly dry and unhappy but also being mindful of the sensitivity of my skin.
