Christmas Eve



Christmas Eve

 
Guess who I bumped into on this fine Christmas Eve…
One of Santa’s Reindeers J
It could be Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid,and Donder and Blitzen, and the most famous reindeer of all Rudolph the Red-Nose reindeer…
Anyway I saw this reindeer when I was at Garsons Farm Garden Centre, they looked beautiful as you can see, but now I want a pet reindeer aha
This reindeer looks so cheeky as well, I want one lol
Seeing this reindeer really got me more into the Christmas spirit so I have decided to show you some of my favourite things at Christmas time, hope you like them to J
 
I absolutely love the Costa take away cups at Christmas as they do Santa, Snowmen, Elf and Reindeer ones and I think they look really cute :)

I thought I would share with you this can because I love it soooo much. This can represents the CocaCola advert and if you haven't seen the Coca Cola advert before Christmas then your missing out as for me when I see this advert its the beginning of Christmas :)

 Throughout December I did sneak in a cheeky McDonalds, I only had a vanilla milkshake as they are my favourite, I just thought I would show you the cup as I thought it was very cute and Christmassy 
I did stop off at Winter wonderland in London, and we got really lucky in a sense, ill tell you the story, so we were walking around and we had stopped to get some food and then we saw this couple having an argument (being nosey as you do), the man stropped off and through his tickets/tokens away for the ride and she didn't pick them up either, so we waited a while to see if they would come back for them and they never did so we picked them up and guess how many they had brought, £30 pounds worth we were like OMG, so we went on a ride and then we decided to go in the ice kingdom where we saw this amazing ice sculptor and this castle had a slide on it which was pretty cool (see what I did there) made from ice. I loved it :)

Shelby stole my Christmas coke :(

At Christmas I love to put all candles for that wintery affect and these two are my favourite smelling candles at Christmas time

I brought this sandwich simply because it looked festive and was quite yummy

What are your favourite things at Christmas?

christmas wrapping


Festive Christmas Wrapping
 My Real Christmas Tree (aint it pretty)




 Amazing Wrapping Right ;)

These are my favourite christmas decorations on our tree :)

It's that time of the year again, when we all make the dash around numerous City's and Towns searching high and low for presents and gifts for our loved ones. Last minutes Christmas shopping is the worst! I'm just going to throw this out there too, it's the one time of the year a lot more men leave their caves in one big men-mass swarm, all grunting and groaning in the shops looking for something to get their wives, girlfriends, sisters and mothers (okay, we know that's not entirely true, and some very organized and thoughtful men did their Christmas shopping in February...YEH RIGHT!) This year, I have completed my Christmas shopping AND wrapping by the 20th (not bad).

Although Christmas is a time for giving and receiving, I am one of these people that is ALL about the giving. Putting lot's of thought into people's presents, wrapping them nicely, and PRESENTing (see what I did there?) them to special people in your life is SO exciting. I always feel a great sense of satisfaction when the presents are all bought and wrapped ready for the 25th and popped under the tree.

I thought i'd share some of my wrapped presents with you, in order to get your creative juices flowing if you lack a little in that department or just to give you a few ideas!

I hope this has inspired you, or if you just like to have a nosey at how people decorate presents, then this has fulfilled that desire for you. I'm a firm believer in how a present is wrapped is a good judge of character and says a lot about someone as a person ;) No pressure guys! 

Have you done all your Christmas shopping? Do you love giving presents as much as I do?

Sandy Santa


Review: Lush Christmas- Sandy Santa



This Sandy Santa is a lovely smelling body butter. It smells a bit like sun cream but a million times nicer. It brings back memories of the summer as it has a summer scent. For a body butter it is quite big and I found it really moisturised my body and left it feeling squeaky clean. I am hoping to buy more of these and stock up before the Christmas season is gone. If you want to make this product last longer then you should cut him in half as that is what I was told, however I just couldn’t, I mean look at his little face he is so cute and I didn’t want to kill Santa otherwise I would be put on the naughty list: L

This product has been made over and over again but lush has made it more beneficial for the skin. The new ingredients they have added were coconut oil and butters, this is why Sandy Santa now lasts even longer than before (some knowledge for all you regular buyers of Sandy Santa ;).  

RRP: £4.50

Lush candy mountain

Review: Lush Christmas- Candy Mountain 

 


Bubble bars are one of my Lush necessities. I feel lost without a bubble bar to crumble into my bath.
This has to be one of my favorites. I love the shape, I love the colors & I adore the smell. This candy mountain has a sweet smells to it and does actually remind me of sweets or if your American candy ;)
If you are not familiar with bubble bars, all you do is crumble a small section under running water. I found that if you crumble it under a very fast running tap it produces better quality bubbles, and more of them.
I honestly have nothing more to say about this beaut, I have purchased this and I am planning to purchase a few more as I do find that the smell lingers & leaves my skins softer & more hydrated than normal.
Love, Love, Loving this.

RRP: £2.65
