Christmas Time Favourites | Blogmas


Happy December 1st! 31 days until 2016, how crazy is that?!

So right now I am writing this whilst lying in bed ill surrounded by tissue boxes and blankets, however after a long mid afternoon nap I decided that I wouldn't end the day without posting my first blogmas post which, despite past efforts, I am aiming to complete this year!

I thought I'd start it of simple and list ten of my Christmas time favourites including different family traditions, food and obviously some beauty related things!

Decorations - I'm going to hold my hands up and truthfully admit that I decorated my room for Christmas at the end of September, mainly because the shops had begun to decorate too and I was jealous.  I just couldn't help myself!  As a family, we usually decorate our whole house during the first week of December so I cannot wait to get the main tree up and start adding presents beneath it!

Christmas Music - I love Christmas music but throughout the past couple of months I've restrained myself from listening to them.  Although, a couple of days ago I finally allowed myself to turn on my annual Christmas playlist and jam out to it.  Ah, good times!

Treeselets - each year the amount of these I consume is definitely an unhealthy amount, but that doesn't stop me from scoffing them down!  For those of you who don't know, Treeselets are small, cheesy snacks that are in the shape of Christmas trees - they're super cute!  I could eat them for days #noregrets.

Christmas films - if you read my previous 'autumn favourites' blog post you may know that I recently watched, and loved, Christmas with the Kranks. After watching that film I was in the ultimate festive mood and have been watching different ones most nights, the most recent being The Santa Clause which is an all time classic for me and a film I grew up watching all the time.

Tanya Burr Advent Calendar - my lovely mum treated me to this advent calendar and when I woke up this morning I was so excited to open the first door.  It is such a great idea from Tanya and as one of my favourite YouTubers I am really happy to be trying out more of her products!  I can't wait to see what I get tomorrow!

Christmas morning - this is by far my favourite morning of the year.  I love sitting down and watching people receiving and opening their presents with the soft tune of Christmas songs in the background.  Also the smell of Christmas dinner cooking *drifts of into a Christmas trance* ..

Darker nights - I love leaving school at the end of the day and walking home as the sun sets, I find it so relaxing and peaceful.  Sometimes I arrive home and the fire place is lit resulting with me sitting in front of it whilst watching television.  Throw in a hot chocolate and it's the total winter package!

Christmas Eve - in our household the Christmas Eve routine consists of candles, food, The Polar Express on repeat and a countdown to midnight.  Also some music and occasional last minute present wrapping.  The atmosphere is wonderful.

Late night shopping - I love Christmas shopping, but when I have the opportunity to shop in the dark underneath all the Christmas lights it just makes it 10 times better! I've mentioned festive music many times in this post but don't you just love it when the shops play the famous tunes?  I can't wait!

Christmas lights - every year on the run up to Christmas me and my family go on a walk around our village to look at all the different Christmas lights on the houses.  We also love going on long drives to look at them as there is this one road nearby that goes absolutely crazy!

What are your Christmas time favourites?

Keep smiling:)
Love Abbey xx
