Blogmas Day 23- How Cute

Hi readers,

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Wow where has the time gone?

I really can’t believe the big day is nearly here. I’m going to help mum with the big food shop. Think it’s going to be a bit crazy. Wish me luck!

So my last minute craft projects I’ve managed to complete a couple more diamond cards, I love the Rudolph one I think its so cute!

Also, I’ve managed to knit more stockings which none are the same lol. I’m proud though considering.

What do you normally do for Christmas Eve? Are you all prepared? I’m more or less all finished now.

My lights have arrived so I’ll enjoy putting them up tomorrow (I will keep all updated)

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas eve tomorrow.

Thank you for reading.

Blogmas Day 21- Happy First Day Of Winter.

Hi Readers,

So today is the 21st of December and is officially the shortest day and the first day of winter.

So I thought I would wish everyone a happy solstice. The days should become lighter now so I’m excited.

Welcome cold and cosy nights. Where you can go for winter walks, snuggle in the warm, relax by the fire and drink hot drinks.

Now I can officially kick off winter posts on my blog.  Happy first day of winter everyone! Hope it is filled with fun and light.

Thank you for reading.

Blogmas day 20: My Recent Lights Purchase.

Hi readers,

So there are so many good light displays up this year and I’m getting a little envious! Some of them are so lovely and make you feel all Christmassy.

I remember being little and being taken round the houses to see the lights.

Anyways, I decided to make a last minute light purchase. I brought two boxes which so equate to four rows.

For Halloween I have little light pumpkins like them, so I thought it would be a good idea.

Also, I purchased some window stickers from waitrose.

Fingers crossed it will look okay. I will keep you updated

Blogmas Day 18- Christmas Tag.

Hi readers,

I thought I would give it a go at a Christmas tag.

Christmas tree. Real or fake? Is a Christmas tree a must-have for the winter holidays and creating a Christmas atmosphere or is it not necessary for you?

Fake, I’ve never had a real Christmas tree. A tree is a must-have for me, I could not imagine Christmas without one. I love to decorate also.

Holiday drinks. Coca Cola, eggnog, or hot chocolate? Or maybe something different? What do you drink on Christmas?

Generally, I prefer lemonade rather than coke. I’ll always have bucks fizz with my Christmas dinner. Malibu is my choice of alcoholic drink.

What is your own Christmas tradition?

My new Christmas tradition is going for a nice long scenic walk after Christmas dinner. It’s really good when you are full.

Snow or no snow? Is snow necessary for you to have a Christmas mood? Do you have snow in your town during the winter holidays?

I do love snow but I don’t think it’s necessary to get into the Christmas mood. I’ve never seen snow in my town on Christmas day.

Do you like to stay home on Christmas or to travel during the winter holidays?

No question about it I like to stay home. I’ve never travelled for Christmas. I’m really lucky in the sense my family all live near me.

Christmas fairy lights. Multicolor or warm white (yellow)?

I like warm white I think it’s cosy. I think it also depends on the space.

Your top 3 must-watch every Christmas?

Elf, Nativity and Deck The Halls.

Ginger cookies or sugar cookies? Or are you not ”a cookie person”?

I would say ginger cookies because it’s very Christmassy. I’m more of a savoury person than sweet I would say.

Do you prefer to watch Christmas movies or listen to Christmas music during the holidays?

I’m a massive music person, so I would say music. Christmas music is one of my favourites also. I drive my boyfriend crazy with heart Xmas.

Must-have meals for your festive dinner?

Traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Also, a buffet on boxing day with turkey and mash.

Do you wear ”ugly” sweaters, fancy dresses, or pyjamas?

I would say I mix it up every year. However, I do normally wear a Christmas jumper. I get a pair of new pyjamas for Christmas night as well.

An angel or a star as the decoration for the top of your Christmas tree? What looks better and cosier?

When I was little, I always had an angel on the tree. Then I changed to a star. Now I don’t have anything. Personally, I like a star better.

Decorate early or decorate on December 23?

I decorate generally the first weekend on the first week of December. I couldn’t have it too early or late. I do love my Christmas decorations.

Do you celebrate New Year Eve?

Yes, I do like a celebration to see the new year in.

What the best thing about Christmas?

Making memories with those you love.

Thank you for reading.

Blogmas Day 14- My First Knit Of The Year

Hi Readers!

Two weeks since blogmas started wow wow wow…

I thought I would share because I’ve managed to complete my first knit! Which is a little Christmas stocking. I know it’s not great but I’m still learning.

It was a really simple pattern from YouTube. It didn’t take too long to complete. It’s really good for knitting practice though.

I’m proud of how it turned out. Here to more knitting projects!

Blogmas Day 10- My Favourite Things About Christmas.

Hi readers,

I thought I would share some of my favourite things about Christmas. There are just so many!

Family gatherings-

Christmas to me is all about family. I love having that time to spend celebrating.

The food-

I love my food and some of the Christmas food is the best. The Christmas dinner, the chocolates and the nibble. Also, it’s a lot of food!

The music-

I can just listen to all types of Christmas music over and over again. It can be pop music or carols I love it.

The movies-

I do love a snuggle up to a Christmas movie. They are just so feel good.

Gift giving-

Since becoming older I enjoy more the action of giving gifts than receiving them. It’s great to make someone happy with the gift you’ve got them.

What are some of your favourite things about Christmas?

Thank you for reading.
