A Christmas To Do List

A Christmas To Do List

Now December is here I can truly embrace all things Christmas and really get into the festive spirit. For once I actually have a busy Christmas to look forward to and I couldn’t be more excited. Therefore I thought I would put a little list together of some of the festive things I am going to be getting up to over the next few weeks.

Go to Centre Parcs – I feel really lucky and grateful that I’m going to Centre Parcs for a second time this year. From when you’re reading this, I’m literally going in only a matter of couple of days which I am super excited for. I loved it when I went the first time in the summer and know it’s going to be even more magical going this close to Christmas. They hold a Winter Wonderland where everything turns wintery and festive. It will be sure to get me into the festive mood. I can’t wait to have a relaxing yet fun break away with Matt and his family. It’s going to be super cute and will be a great challenge for my anxiety. Bring it on!

Put up the Christmas decorations – How much fun is putting up the Christmas tree and all the decorations around the house? So much fun! I love helping my Mum out and doing it together. It’s such a lovely thing to do together and makes you feel all kinds of festive. I can’t wait to live in my own house one day and decorate it whatever I want it and also share the experience with my kids. It will be such a lovely tradition to keep at.

Do some Christmas baking – I love baking all year round, but there’s just something about doing it at Christmas that makes it feel so much better. I can’t wait to have a browse through Pinterest to check out some recipe ideas. I’m thinking some delicious gingerbread men and some snowman cupcakes. Mmm I bet they’ll be delicious!

Get a Christmas jumper – I feel like this one has been on my Christmas to do list for like four years now, but never seems to work out. When you’re a short girl under 5ft and have small arms, it is impossible to find a jumper that doesn’t drown you in length or ends up being a fortune in price for a few weeks wear. I’m definitely going to make it my aim this Christmas to find the perfect one to avoid this being on my Christmas to do list again next year. Send me your recommendations for places to shop for cute ones please!!!!!

Take lots of pictures – Christmas is the perfect time to whip out the camera and take lots of pictures. I love looking back on pictures and seeing how much you’ve changed or reflecting on memories. It’s a great way to pick yourself up when you’re feeling sad or just to enjoy looking back on with your loved ones. I want to take so many pictures so I can cherish them forever #soppygit.

Look at all the festive lights – Ever since I was young, I’ve enjoyed driving or walking around my local area and taking in all the festive lights people have put up outside their homes. Some people put in so much effort so it’s always nice to admire their dedication to the festive period. It’s always a great mood booster too!

Play all the Christmas music – I’m very fond of a Spotify playlist or two, so you can imagine how excited I am to be listening to all the Christmas music and singing so much I annoy Matt all the damn time. But hey ho, if there is no other way to get into the Christmas spirit, then it’s listening to some festive tunes and singing your heart out every hour of the day until the big day is over!

Buy and wrap presents – I never seem to really do my Christmas shopping until December. I’m never organised enough to do it before then. But I love buying presents for people and wrapping up presents. I love making them look so cute and put together. It brings me such joy and I get so excited when I think about people opening them.

Do lots of festive things – Whilst I haven’t got many festive plans yet, I know that I will aim to do more festive things this year. I know we have some plans to go ice skating and go to church on Christmas Eve, two things I have never done, but I’m looking forward to. I’m just excited to see what we do get up to and the memories we do make. This is a Christmas I am actually looking forward to for the first time in years and it makes me feel so happy.

What’s on your Christmas to do list?

A Christmas To Do List

A Christmas To Do List

Can you believe it’s the 1st of December already? I can’t! So what better way to start the first post of December off than one that centres around what this month is all about. This is my Christmas to do list for the next few weeks…

Watch Elf & Home Alone – These are two of my all time favourite Christmas movies. They’re such feel good movies to sit down and watch snuggled up under the blankets on a winter’s evening or sunday afternoon with all the family. I’ve already watched Home Alone a couple of weeks back, but I’m for sure going to be rewatching it again.

Christmas shopping – I haven’t actually started my Christmas shopping yet….oops! But of course, this month marks the time that I will eventually start. I was so much more organised last year, but I guess because I seem to buy for less and less people each year, I’ve not been too bothered about it.

Christmas baking – I love baking all year round, but it definitely feels a lot more fun and indulgent during the winter and Christmas period. My favourite thing to do at the moment is scroll through my Pinterest feed and pin Christmas baking related images. I love how creative you can be with it. Watch this space for some Christmas bakes appearing on my Instagram or blog in the next few weeks.

Decorate the tree and home – Who doesn’t love getting the decorations out and making the whole home feel festive? I for sure love it and it get’s me more excited for Christmas. I love decorating the tree with lights and cute decorations with the family.

Blogmas – I’m going to attempt to do blogmas this year, so prepare yourself for daily blogging and lots of content this month. I’m quite nervous yet excited about it. I hope I can follow through with it and produce some really interesting posts for you all. Bring on the challenge!

Have a lush Christmas bath – Lush is the number one place to go if you want to treat yourself to some heavenly bath goodies. I’m definitely going to be picking up some bits from Lush over the festive period to have a super Christmassy bath. I’ve got my eye on the Snow Fairy shower gel at the moment and of course I’ve got to have Butter Bear. He’s adorable and leaves your skin feeling so soft.

Glitter nails – I’ve already been whacking out the glitter nail polish to appear on a couple of my nails the last month, but now that Christmas is fast approaching, I’m going to be sporting this choice of polish a lot more. 

Wrap and give presents – Even though I suck at wrapping presents, I actually love wrapping them up and trying to make them look half presentable. There’s also nothing better than giving someone a gift and seeing the look of surprise on their face once they’ve opened it. It’s such a great feeling!

Buy and wear a Christmas jumper – I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never actually owned a Christmas jumper before, but in my defence jumpers and me aren’t always the best of friends. Try being 4ft11 with short arms, you’ll understand my struggle when every jumper drowns you and the sleeve length comes way past the tops of your fingers. But this year, I plan on finding the perfect one and wearing the hell out of it, because why bloody not! This one from Primark has got my name on it.

What’s on your Christmas to do list?
