Blogmas Day 21: My Christmas Playlist

Sunday, 21 December 2014


I know how many people feel about Christmas songs, but they do have their place in the world especially when you need some cheering up or some background noise while wrapping presents. Here is my selection of the least vomit-inducing Christmas tunes I can find...

8 Days Of Christmas - Destiny's Child
Frank Sinatra - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Baby It's Cold Outside - Idina Menzel
Let It Go - Pentantonix
O Holy Night - Carrie Underwood
Wonderful Christmas Time - Paul McCartney
Underneath The Tree - Kelly Clarkson
Christmas Time - The Darkness

Blogmas Day 20: The Christmas Tag

Saturday, 20 December 2014


1. What are your favourite Christmas movies?
My top three are The Grinch, It's A Wonderful Life and 2001 A Christmas Carol. I also love watching Blackadder's Christmas Carol every year!

2. What are your favourite Christmas songs?
I like Destiny's Child 8 Days Of Christmas, East 17 Stay Another Day and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Frank Sinatra. Also I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day because it out Christmasses any other Christmas song ever.

3. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
No present shall be opened until Christmas morning! I'd never even heard of people opening a present on Christmas eve until recently. I usually just try and get to sleep as easily as I can on the eve rather than causing more excitement by opening a gift early.

4. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
All my Christmas memories are happy ones and none really stick out, although I remember always being happy to have my dad home from work for a full two weeks and being so excited about watching Christmas movies together.

5. Favourite festive food?
You've got to make a crock pot of mulled wine with oranges and cinnamon around Christmas, it's also nice having a fridge full of several types of cheese just once a year!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I can't think of a particular scent, but my favourite sound is hearing my Nan's noisy electric carving knife slicing the turkey in the kitchen.

7. Do you have any Christmas eve traditions?
Sadly no, it usually just consists of family time with us all watching a Christmas film before trotting off to bed while my parents wrap the gifts.

8. What tops your tree?
Thin air! We have a small house, so our tree is actually a stylish twig with fairy lights and a pile of presents piling up to nearly half it's height!

9. As a kid what extravagant gift did you always ask for but never got?
Besides the obvious puppy request (which still stands by the way!) I always fancied a little electric ride on car to cruise round the garden with.

10. What's the best part of Christmas to you?
I love buying gifts and the satisfied feeling of getting them all bought and wrapped well in time, also the general lift in mood, parties, meals and the lead up to Christmas day!

Blogmas Day 18: Nothing To Wear

Thursday, 18 December 2014


I had to pick up this sweatshirt from New Look when I saw it on the mannequin, I would say it comes under the 'honest fashion' trend like when girls wore a beanie with 'BAD HAIR DAY' emblazoned across the front last Winter. Where I plan my next day's face and am never stuck for a make up look, I feel this jumper embodies my general dilemma when it comes to clothes. There's always a ketchup stain on your favourite top, your only nude bra's in the wash so that's anything white out the window and the weather's good for once but you're having a fat day, so showing your arms is out of the question. At least in future when I rock up to where I'm meant to be, this slogan can explain my bedraggled appearance.
