    Merry Christmas

    That’s the presents unwrapped, the turkey eaten, the pigs in blankets devoured, all of the films watched. That’s Christmas done for another year! Can’t lie, I’ve definitely eaten enough to feed a small army today, not mention drank so much Moscato that it’s practically pouring out of my ears. I hope you all had a magical Christmas, wherever you are in the world ~ 2018 is around the corner, so let us all wish for the best in the upcoming New Year. PS. Doctor Who was pretty good this year. Scream for Lethbridge-Stewart. Scream because we have finally got rid of Steven Moffatt. Scream because of the new Doctor’s Yorkshire…

    Friendsmas

    Merry Christmas Eve! Tomorrow is officially Christmas — are you ready?! I literally just finished my Christmas shopping yesterday. Since finishing work up for the holidays, I have eaten a ridiculous amount that it’s no wonder that I don’t look like a small whale, right now. I mean as I am typing this, I am eating πŸ˜‚ That’s my favourite part of Christmas, not that I need an excuse, but the amount of food consumption. To be fair, I should be careful though because I have definitely started to feel the effects of eating too much… At the moment, though, can’t stop, won’t stop! This week, I’ve had three Friendsmas gatherings…

    Borough Market

    I wanted to go to several markets to write for this post, but I only managed to visit one with my mum the other day. Nevertheless, I had fun wandering around Borough Market and looking at all the goodies the sellers had on display. I love grabbing a mulled wine from one of the stalls and browsing what’s for sale. With 14 different herbs and spices, the mulled wine I chose was so delicious. I also managed to pick up some fudge from Whirld and beer sticks from Canon & Canon. I also got to smell some truffles, whilst my mum was in the background telling me that they look…

    Christmas Tree Reveal

    My mum is always in charge of the Christmas tree and I just realised that I haven’t posted any pictures of our tree anywhere on social media! This year she went for a silver and red theme and as always it turned out amazing 😍 I also mentioned that I decorated a mini tree for my desk at work, and my mum picked up some mini decorations for me. I also managed to nab some fairy lights from Poundland and with the spare tinsel I wrapped some fairy lights around it and put it on my screen! What does your Christmas tree look like? Do you go for real or…

    A Letter to Santa

    Dear Santa, I can’t remember the last time I wrote to you. I vaguely remember writing a few letters when I younger asking for the usual kid things like toys, but this year I’m not wishing for anything like that. As you know, this year I’ve been alright… mostly. 2017 has been so up and down, but I’m happy to report that it has mostly had its ups. I feel a lot smarter and wiser, and that I can achieve anything that I put my heart to. A lot of progress has been made this year in terms of finding myself and putting the work into making my dreams come…

    My Christmas Playlist

    Every time I hear Jingle Bell Rock I just think of Mean Girls and Gretchen kicking the boom box into Jason’s face. I die every single time of laughter. Classic. Time to bust out your Christmas jumper, make a hot drink and settle down to some festive tunes. I love Christmas songs, but I don’t really get into them until it’s actually December. Anytime before that and I’m like, “NOOOO, IT’S TOO EARLY.” I swear Christmas starts in the shops earlier and earlier every year — I swear it’ll become a thing where before we’ve even finished summer, they’ll be decorating the windows with Christmas lights and tinsel. A good classic Christmas song…

    My Top 5 Christmas Films

    I absolutely love Christmas films because they always get me in the spirit. I love tucking myself into bed in my onesie and surrounding myself with snacks whilst I watch one of my favourite films. I did this the other day when I watched Christmas Prince on Netflix and oh my gosh… what an absolute sh*te film, but yet I still watched it the whole way through πŸ˜‚ Anyway, here are my top 5 Christmas films (in no particular order (Okay, well if you read my posts in 2015 then you’ll know Love Actually is no. 1, but whatever whatever)) Elf (2003) I remember watching this for the first time and…

    Christmas Baking

    Tis the season to be jolly! πŸŽ„ Today marks 1 week until Christmas, which also means the start of Weekmas which Mutay suggested I do as I did want to have some festive posts up, but I don’t have time for Blogmas or 12 Days of Christmas! I’ve been really getting into the festivities this season and despite it still not feeling exactly like Christmas just yet for me, it’s been really fun. From decorating my desk at work (my extra ass bought a small Christmas tree and put tinsel and lights on my screen) to the gingerbread house decorating (click here to see how it turned out), it’s definitely getting me…
