It’s no surprise to you that I’m a huge lover of Christmas and I can’t believe it’s only 6 days away now. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and probably always will be. Everyone seems much more cheery and the towns looks so pretty with fairy lights scattered everywhere. So in today’s post I wanted to share a few things that get me into the festive spirit.
I always have so much fun decorating the house and my room for Christmas. I’ve attached fairy lights to my bed and basically every mirror in the house and I also bought festive cushions and a throw for my bed. I absolutely love this little copper reindeer cushion from Primark. We also decorated our Christmas tree last week and this is honestly my favourite thing to do. The smell of a real Christmas tree is just the best.
I find sitting down to watch a Christmas movie is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit! I have so many films that I love and I would sit here for a fair few hours if I had to write them all down but some of my faves are Elf, Love Actually, The Holiday, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Home Alone. What are your favourite Christmas movies?
I love scented candles, from fresh and floral to sweet vanilla, there are very few I don’t like. Especially now that the nights get darker and colder, there’s nothing better than coming in from the cold to a christmassy scented candle. I instantly feel warm and happy. The candle I’ve been burning the past few days is a Yankee Candle in the scent Cranberry Ice.
We all know it’s not quite Christmas without a festive nail. My current favourite is a Manhattan nail polish in the shade 640 Bring It On . It’s such a gorgeous red colour with pink and red glitter. I think this is the perfect colour for Christmas, I literally can’t stop staring at my nails right now.
There’s nothing quite as relaxing as a pamper evening in the run up to Christmas. I love having a little festive pamper and what would a pamper evening be without Lush? The Lush Christmas collection this year is just gorgeous. Some of my favourite bubble bars and bath bombs are Dashing Santa and The Magic of Christmas.
