I wanted to write a post on how much I love this season and how happy it makes me.
The key to a successful Christmas for me is to be organised and enjoy the build up, rather than stressing out.
Here is where I show you how Festive I get and what I’ve been up to over the last couple of weeks for the build up to Christmas.
I decorated early this year. I decorated the house at the end of November and decorated the office on the 1st of December. In a previous blog post I showed how I decorated my bedroom, few tips and tricks over there for you to check out.
Festive candles are my weakness, I love the smell of a mince pie in a candle or cinnamon sticks. It warms my heart. Here are a few of my fave candles to burn over fall.
I always start my Christmas shopping Oct/Nov so by the start of December I’ve wrapped them all and stuck them under the tree.
The wrapping paper I’ve used this year is lovely and it’s from Primark. I think I’m stag obsessed this Christmas, but this wrapping paper was only £1.50 for 5 meters. Also did a little hack on my previous post with the wrapping paper. I also used cards as tags as I didn’t have any, the cards were also from Primark.
The Welsh Christmas card is from https://www.adrahome.com I love their welsh decor, gifts and prints. Worth checking them out.
Festive drinks are a must over this season. It’s an excuse to drink or eat anything really. Champagne at 8:25am, don’t mind If I do it’s December. I’m not the biggest mulled wine lover but I’m a hot chocolate/coffee lover.
Mcdonalds do good festive hot drinks, including Toffee Latte and Spiced Cookie Latte.
Also while I was as the Christmas Markets in Manchester, Hot Choc with Baileys was to die for. Also had a Cherry Punch with Ameretto, tasted like warm Dr Pepper.
We went to Trafford Centre in Manchester too which was very festive. We didn’t know the Coca Cola truck was going to be there and the sky and view was fantastic.
Even though I finished off all my Christmas Shopping, I Couldn’t go to Manchester/ Liverpool and Chester without shopping for myself could I.
Here are just a few things I bought along the way. I’ll do an in depth Haul on another blog post.
To top everything off we have a new addition to the family. Her name is Cadi and she’s a 20 week old kitten. She looks exactly like our previous cat Twm which unfortunately passed away in a car accident, he wasn’t even 3 yet.
My Mum and Dad decided they wanted a new kitten so they can love and adore as much as Twm, and she is perfect.
I still have a lot more festivities coming up, such as my work Christmas party, secret santa, Mad Friday and obviously Christmas Day.
My little niece always visits Boxing Day which is also a bonus after Christmas and then there’s New Years Eve.
Plus New York will be around the corner. I’m so exited.. Never been to America so shoukd be fun and have always wanted to go to NYC!!
As I’m writing this post it’s snowing which makes it 10 times better. Hope you have a lovely Christmas. Enjoy every second of it with your family and friends.
Thanks for reading, means a lot
