It only feels like yesterday I was on a beach drinking cocktails and eating endless amounts of ice cream and now we are about to start the 25 day countdown to Christmas!

There is no one in the world who loves Christmas more than me. The jingle bells music, the bright lights, the warm smell of cinnamon and spices, singing and dancing with family and friends and eating and drinking absolutely everything in sight without feeling guilty! I may be a big kid when it comes to Christmas but aren’t we all?

Even though we might all have a moan about the constant frost on the cars and the freezing cold mornings throughout December, it isn’t all miserable! Here are my top 3 things I love about December…

Advent Calendars…

Whether it’s a Cadburys chocolate or a gift someone has kindly put thought into for you there is nothing quite like waking up in the morning and opening a small surprise to countdown the days leading to Christmas! It might be a tradition that is associated with being young but why? I still have one!

Log Fire’s…

Winter is well and truly here. Temperature’s have dramatically dropped and the days are definitely shorter. There is nothing better than getting out the blankets, pouring a glass of mulled wine, warming up mince pies, putting on your fluffy slippers and snuggling in front of a proper log burning fire.

Shopping Shopping and more Shopping…

Although you can go shopping at any time of the year there is no better time than throughout the Christmas period! With the city streets sparkling, the festive music playing on repeat and amazing deals and offers here there and everywhere! It might a daunting task searching for those perfect gifts for your family and friends but it’s something I always have and always will enjoy doing – Watching my loved ones opening their gifts and seeing the smiles on their faces…and not forgetting opening one or two myself! 

Happy December Everyone!
