The Most Wonderful Time of the Year












The title really sums it up and my large collection of photos in this post (sorry). Its not hard to tell that Christmas is my favourite time of year and I’m sure its the same for many of you. From giving gifts to Christmas dinner to decorations to family to winter and to Coca-cola (of course..) Christmas is just fantastic. You can check out my Christmas Tag post I did last week to see how I spend my Christmas.

As this is my last post before Christmas, all I have left to say is of course Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you all have a wonderful day and Santa is good to you all!! Also instead of my usual Friday post this week I have moved it to Saturday. See you all then 🙂

What is your favourite thing about Christmas?



The Christmas Tag

IMG_5268Its about time I started to get a little festive here on the blog and there is nothing better than a good tag, Christmas edition! Its just over a week til my favourite day of the year so I threw some questions together, I hope you enjoy it and I would love to see y’all try it out yourself!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie?

Difficult question. I am not a big movie person but I do love a good Christmas one. Probably Elf or Love Actually, I can’t even decide.

2. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

No I don’t. I don’t actually do anything special or have any traditions on Christmas Eve, it gets saved til Christmas Day itself!

3. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?

Probably my iPad I received a couple of years ago. I really don’t know what I would do without it and the best bit is that I never even asked for one or expected to get it, what a lovely surprise 🙂

4. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

I would love to go to New York at this time of year. It just seems so fab, the lights, the snow… I can’t think of anything better! I would also love to visit Prague and check out all the Christmas markets!

5. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

Yes. Quite a few times! Living in the UK means snow, rain, cold weather all the time really so its no surprise to have a white Christmas.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?

I love the smell of gingerbread cookies and to be honest any kind of cookies. I also love the scent of winter berries.

7. What is your favourite Christmas song?

I love a good Christmas song but my favourite has to be Feliz Navidad, Michael Buble edition oh yes! Unusual choice but such a cheery and not overplayed song! Also, just have to mention the fact the whole Michael Buble Christmas album is amazing and ooo I also love Fairytale of New York, sorry I am bad at choosing one.

8. Favourite festive food?

Controversially, I am not the biggest fan of Christmas dinner, I mean I like it but I don’t get crazy excited over it like most do. I prefer dessert…(no surprise). I love the treats you get at this time of the year, crepes and churros from the market yum! and of course gingerbread men mmm – check out my recipe here.

9. What’s your favourite holiday drink?

There is always the festive specials in Starbucks and Costa but to be honest as I am not the biggest fan of coffee I love to stick to my warm and cosy Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows (of course!).

10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?

There is so many reasons to love Christmas, the decorations, the cookies, the shopping, the atmosphere, the music but I just love being able to take time off, forget about everything and spend time with your family. I really can’t wait to get the de-stress from the uni workload and just chill and relax with my favourite people 🙂
