Hello beautiful people!
There are officially 14 days until Christmas! That’s only two weeks!!! I’m so incredibly excited, so in honour of my excitement and the fact that there are only 2 weeks until the best day of the year, todays post is going to be my top 14 favourite things about the Christmas season!
First as always:
Of course it’s all the time I get to spend with my friends and family. People come home from school and out of town and it just makes this time of year so magical, lots of togetherness which I love.
The good eats! All the turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and of course all the delicious sweets. This is the time of year where comfort food is a must, and there’s nothing better than breaking bread with good people.
Christmas trees, one of my favourite traditions is decorating the tree with my family, but there’s just something about sitting next to my tree in the evening looking at the lights that just puts a big smile on my face.
*Yes that is a bow on my head
Snow! This white fluffy stuff is so magical to me! I love how Christmas lights look once there’s snow on the ground, everything just looks beautiful covered in snow.
Christmas music! Every chance I get as soon as December hits I’m listening to Christmas tunes. The Michael Buble holiday album is my favourite this year!
Festive drinks! Apple cider, hot chocolate, mint tea; I’ll take it all! As long as it’s in a cute mug and accompanied by something sweet I’m a happy little elf.
Decorations. I love seeing how festive all the shops get, and people go all out with lights on their houses, it just makes the time of year seem so jolly!
Dark lips & glitter. What kind of beauty blogger would I be if I didn’t mention make-up? This time of year is the perfect excuse to wear as much glitter as you want! Either on your eyes, or your nails or your outfit; bring it on!
Dark lips are also a great trend that comes around every year at this time, it just adds sophistication and sexiness to any outfit or event!
Gifts – obviously. Definitely not the most important part of the season but I personally love shopping for gifts and watching people receive them. I try to put as much thought as possible into the gifts that I buy,and I like to see people react when they open them. And of course I like getting gifts because really, who doesn’t?
The fashion, I love getting to wear big sweaters and scarves and warm woolly hats and mittens. Everything about the fashion this time of year is so cozy and very comfort oriented which is always a plus!
The candles, this time of year always has the sweetest and spiciest smelling candles which always puts me in a very festive mood ( Not that I need much help in that department)
This time of year always has the best gift sets! Cosmetic related or otherwise, you can always find gift sets with great products for cheaper than they normally would be on their own.
The movies – Christmas movies are fun to watch with loved ones and really it’s the only time of year you get to watch your holiday favourites.
Speaking of movies – Today’s is A Christmas Story which is one of my dad’s holiday favourites.
Christmas day! My whole family comes over and we spend the day chatting, playing games, and eating delicious food and it’s just the best day of the year!
I hope this made you feel festive!
