Hello, my Lovelies! So tomorrow is the 1st of December, and I finally feel like I am now allowed to start the Christmas blog posts, so if you enjoy this post feel free to follow as you can expect gift guides, my Christmas beauty favourites and Christmas wishlists 🙂
Here are my top 10 things that I love about Christmas:
Spending Time with Loved Ones
Whether it is for meals, shopping trips or just a cosy night in, I love spending time with my loved ones more than ever around this time of the year! Christmas this year is even more special for me as it myself and my boyfriend’s first Christmas together and I’m sure it will be a very magical time. I am also one of those people who much prefers giving presents, I love the smiles on people’s faces when you give them a present that has a personal touch or something that they have been wanting to receive.
Christmas Movies and Music
With such a huge array of Christmas channels, it’s very much easy to take full advantage of them and play them 24/7 during the festive period! My favourite Christmas movies include Nativity, The Holiday and Love Actually, and as for my favourite Christmas songs it has to be Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin Stevens.
Coffee House’s Christmas Drinks
Their’s nothing I love more than being at University and sipping on a Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate, and it’s fair to say the Coffee Houses release more delicious drinks every year! And I do not have enough words to explain how delicious the pastries and cakes are, but they are just heaven.
In my house putting the Christmas Decorations up is very much a team effort, and I love it! For those wondering, we have a fake tree and our colour scheme is teal and silver, and I think it looks very much like an Elsa inspired tree. Tonight I am actually getting my bedroom Christmas ready, as I have been gifted some beautiful decorations from M&S.
Glitter Eyes and Red Lips
I’m so excited because it is now acceptable to wear my favourite make-up look on a daily basis…a copper smoky eye and classic red lip! I use the Makeup Revolution Flawless Eye Shadow Palette and MAC’s Ladybug Lipstick in order to achieve my look.
Glitter and Metallic Fashion
My love for glitter and metallic makeup transitions into my wardrobe! I love metallic playsuits, glitter clutches and embellished heels to create my festive party look, my favourite store to find these items is New Look as they have a huge range to pick from so I am sure you will find something for you.
In my opinion, over the next few weeks I feel it is acceptable to eat twice your body weight in food, it is the perfect time to indulge! Whether it’s during meals at your favourite restaurants/pubs, or on Christmas Day when you are overloaded with pigs in blankets and mince pies.
This my favourite time of year to watch Youtube, as not only does it give me inspiration for my own content, but it’s the fact that you feel like your spending every day with your favourite Youtubers who are participating in Vlogmas..my favourite by far is Zoella’s! She inspires me throughout the year, but it’s the fact she put’s so much time and effort into creating such fantastic content.
The options are endless when it comes to going to Christmas events ; Christmas Markets, Pantos, Light Switch On’s..you really are spoilt for choice! I am also secretly hoping to go on a festive walk with my family this year, as it also our puppy’s first Christmas!
Sadly I am being a bad beauty blogger this year as I have not invested in Beauty Advent Calendar but I may have too next year! But on the other hand is there anything better than waking to a heavenly piece of advent chocolate leading up to Christmas.
