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?
