Blogmas Day 24- It’s nearly here!!

Hi readers,

Here we are, Christmas Eve. We are moments away.

To anyone completing blogmas congratulations 24 days in a row what an achievement.

I’ve wrapped the last presents, knitted the last stocking and finished all the shopping. I’m shattered now I think I’ll get a nice early night now. Ready for an early start and a busy day.

The turkey is cooking and I absolutely love the smell it bring back so many Chrismtas memories.

Now the rush is over, it’s time to relax.

Are you all ready for it?

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021 Christmas.

Take Care.

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

Thank you for reading.

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 15- My Childhood Christmas Memory.

Hi readers,

So I was reflecting earlier, what can I most remember about my childhood Christmases?

The funny thing is it was going to see the pantomime every year. I used to love it and it’s so engrossed in my memory.

My Mum and Dad used to take me all over the place to go see them. I remember how much I enjoyed them and how entertaining they were.

What is pantomime? Googles answer Pantomime is a type of musical comedy stage production designed for family entertainment. It was developed in England and is performed throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland and in other English-speaking countries, especially during the Christmas and New Year season. 

I think it’s why I love everything theatre.

It’s funny how I can’t really remember gifts. But I can remember things I did.

Thank you for reading.

Take care

Blogmas Day 13- NYX Advent Calender First Impressions.

Hi readers,

So I’ve recently just opened my new NYX advent calendar. I got it before the first but I thought because it’s a 12 door, wait until 12 days left. I’m so excited!

I’ve never done a make-up calendar before. I’m not a makeup person. So I thought it would be a good way to get into it.

For £12.00 for 12 items seems quite a bargain. NYX is a well-established brand also.

My first product was a concealer. Which I didn’t expect actually. It’s yellow and after research, I found out it’s for colour correcting blemishes.

First product day 1

On a good note, I finished this adorable penguin diamond painting card. I love it!

Thank you for reading.

Day 10- My Christmas Tree Reveal

Hi Readers,

It’s starting to get really cold now. Whilst taking my dog out for a walk it felt all wintery. Will the UK have a white Christmas I wonder? I’m 22 and never recall seeing a white Christmas.

So I thought it was finally time to reveal what my Christmas tree looks like.

This year I decided to go for a ice blue and white theme. I like how it looks, I think it’s bright and Christmassy. There are lots of new additions this year the blue baubles, a couple of glass baubles and the tree skirt.

Blogmas Day 8- What I Have Enjoyed About Doing Blogmas…

Hi readers,

wow wow wow… I can’t believe it has been a full week of Blogmas already. It does feel like it’s flying by. Here are a few things I’ve enjoyed participating.

It’s creative-

I enjoy having a creative outlet I can go to every night. I’ve enjoyed brainstorming and thinking up blogmas post ideas.

It encourages me to be a better person-

Writing down goals and things I want to do. I feel it persuades me more to do it. Since writing down the books I want to read, I have gone out of my way to make reading time.

It get’s me in the festive mood-

I love Christmas and being able to write about Christmas every day is fun. Blogmas is starting to feel a bit like a Christmas tradition.

It has a community feel-

It’s really fun to see what others are doing during the festive season. Since there are so many participants. It feels like a whole community blogging together.

What do you like about blogmas?

Thank you for reading,

Blogmas Day 7- Craft Projects I Want To Complete For Christmas.

Hi Readers,

So some of you may not know but I’m a recent knitter. So one project I want to complete is knitting some little stockings for Christmas. Don’t know how it’ll go but I’ll give it a good try. Since we’ve got everyone round this year, if I make enough I thought it would be a good idea to put them on the table with little gifts. I’m using a youtube tutorial I’ve seen.

I’ve also recently got into diamond painting. Whilst on Amazon I found some diamond painting cards. It’s a good time filler and I love the way it looks at the end. Hopefully, I’ll be able to complete a couple for my family

Are you doing any crafts this year? If so what will you be doing?

Thank you for reading
