Blogmas day 21! – Sunday date night

Hello beautiful people!
Last night was such a lovely evening, Carmen’s mom made a delicious turkey dinner and it was so nice catching up with his family and friends.
Today was quite a boring day to be honest, I tidied my bedroom and did some laundry, after opening my advent calendars for the day!

Carmen and I decided to make the evening a little bit of a date night, so we headed to the movies! We went to see the new Horrible Bosses 2, and it was actually pretty good. Obviously not as good as the first one, but I definitely laughed out loud this time too!
Afterwards we had some dinner at Kelsey’s which was super yummy. Now he’s off playing hockey with his friends, and I’m curled up in bed with a tea getting ready to watch tonight’s Christmas movie.
The nightmare before Christmas is my favourite movie of all time, so even though I watch it plenty throughout the year, it just didn’t seem right not to watch it this close to Christmas.

Sorry if this post isn’t very interesting, but I think Sunday’s are meant to be lazy!
Enjoy the rest of your night!
Until tomorrow,

Blogmas day 11! – My favourite 14 things about the Holiday Season!

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:

Number one:
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.

Number two:
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.

Number three:
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

Number four:
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.

Number five:
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!

Number six:
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.

Number seven:
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!

Number eight:
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!

Number nine:
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?

Number ten:
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!

Number eleven:
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)

Number twelve:
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.

Number thirteen:
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.

Number fourteen:
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!
Let me know what some of your favourites are!
Until tomorrow,
