12 Days of Natsmas: PLAN (1)


Hello my lovelies, and Welcome to the first day of Natsmas!!!

That’s right, I didn’t think I could hack the full 24 days of blogmas however, 12 days seems much more manageable and I even get to throw in a play on words.

So day one of Natsmas as you can see by the above title is a plan, I thought this would be a good idea so that everyone reading would be able to get excited with me about all the lovely stuff we have coming up!

If you have any further suggestion, I am open to all ideas as I do have a bit of room to move stuff around, but, for now, here is the line up for the next 11 days UNTIL XMAS!!!

2) Fave Baubles and Decorations

3) Surviving Awkward Christmas moments

4) Xmas Presents

5) Christmas Outfits (Formal and (Party)

6) Top Christmas Movies

7) Fave Christmas Food

8) Christmas Cocktails/Mocktails

9) Day in the life

10) Get ready with me: Winter Edition

11) Christmas Baking Recipe

12) Top Christmas songs 2017 (Case study ratings by a series of people from different age groups)

Phew! That’s alotta work to do, I better get cracking. The twelfth day Christmas song challenge has already taken up a lot of time and I am very excited to see the results myself, if you would like to be part of it please do let me know and I will sent you the list! There will be a few videos over on YouTube to go along with some of these Blog Posts if you fancy giving them a watch, so keep an eye out.

Also, I would just like to say sorry about the lack of Instagram posts but that is because I have had to delete Instagram for a little while, I should have it back after Natsmas tho so it will be back again for 2018!

How crazy is it that there’s less than a month left of 2017, it feels like only a few weeks ago I was welcoming it and now its over. I am scared, but also very happy to see what the new year bring as I can guarantee it will be one of the most eventful years of my young life. I will keep you updated every step of the way though!

See you tomorrow,



Songs im lovin #3

Autumn is here once more, and you know what that means…



I’m joking, its means nothing. But today I’m going to give you an update of Songs I’m lovin!

Because I don’t know about you but i’m getting a bit bored of the same old songs being played over, and over, and over, and over again. I needs me some bangers. SO without further or do… here come the girls:

1) “Don’t pick up the phone you know he’s only calling cause he’s drunk and alone…”

JK, but this is the first song in my list – NEW RULES – DUA LIPA

I’m aware this song isn’t exactly revolutionary but its such a sassy song that you on the girls can dance to and makes me hate a boy I’ve never dated.


This again is a chart hit but its another sassy one and I had to include it because it holds such an important message. Women are allowed to be pretty as well as other things, it doesn’t stop with appearance.


OMG this sooooonnnggg, I cant believe i’ve never featured it in one of these before! Its one of my all time favourites and although is a bit more on the slower side, includes the most aesthetic lifestyle ever.

4) YOU/MILK  – THE 1975

My lovely Chummy made me listen to this ages ago and I eternally grateful. You is such a true to heart song that shows your worth and milk, well… I still wanna know why its called that tbf (probably some cool indie word I dont know).


So catchy and dancey, I loves it. It’s a little cheeky but in a very casual way, ugh I wish that was me. I’ve honestly never heard a more accurate representative of a drunk “couple”. (If you want more of this amaze balls band check out “Brooklyn” aswell”) WARNING: It will probably definitely get stuck in your head.


Wow. Just wow. By the end of this song I have no doubt  you’ll be screaming the lyrics to the chorus. It reminds me of mosh pit…but that stories for another day…


ugh his voice. Again I will never understand the titles or names of any indie thing ever – sounds good though.


Sounds so uplifting, and if you ignore the lyrics it is. Pretty cute still, pretty much sums up any young twenty somethings life… probably.


I will never know how to pronounce “haim” but YES they are still relevant and this song proves it with its catchy beat and chorus. You’ll be clicking/clapping in the chorus half way through because, for some reason, it reminds me of gospel music?


Yeah I know, random. But this is an absolute belta that is pretty much timeless by the looks of it.


Last but not least, his mum probably hates him. But he’s got the whole #yolo life down but he does put out a nice message, kind of.

There you go, 11 of my top tuneeessss at the mo. These will hopefully put you in a good mood, if not then i’m entirely to blame and im sorry so just get up and dance anyway.

If you want to listen to them all for free (or not if you have premium) I have created a lil Spotify playlist for ya’ll : https://open.spotify.com/user/natnats14/playlist/5bbPYDViGg541VBrwXsj8g

Arent I nice – dont answer that!

See ya’ll soon!


Songs I’m loving #2


Remember that series of blogs I started where I would tell you my favourite songs i’m loving right now, new and old? Yeah me neither. Thats because I published the first post over a year ago!!! Jeez how time flies. Anyway here is your update of my favourite songs i’ve been listening to a hella lot recently:
“Work This Body” WALK THE MOON – this is such a dancy upbeat song that you could do some serious interpretive dancing to. It also love the cheeky french lyrics thrown in there.

“Geronimo” SHEPPARD – Catchy af (SAY GERONIMO!)

“You Da One” RIHANNA – Aww come on we all need some love in our lives

“Thirsty” Daya – OMG literally the sassiest song ive heard in so, so long. When you wanna fend off a F*ck Boy and embrase the beauty of single life. Sing this on a girls night and it is garunnteed to go down well with all your friends giving you the “OML YAAASSSS GURRRLLL” look.

“If I believe you” THE 1975 – I had a revelation (AAAAHHHHHH!)

“Castle On The Hill” Ed Sheeran – See I can be up and coming too! This song made me smile from the first time I heard it. Its so nostalgic and im sure anyone can relate to it from their childhood and old friends.

“Crazy Crazy Nights” KISS – Massive Throwback but such a good song. You literally cannot helo but sing alont no matter what age you are!

“Icarus” BASTILLE – You have to sing it passionately so I suggest maybe not listening to it in public. But when your driving in the car would be perfect (just please keep your eyes on the road).

I hope you enjoyed that little update into a big park of my life, music. If you would like to see what else im currently listening to my spotify is: https://open.spotify.com/user/natnats14. I hope to see you all next week and please do give me any suggestions from your personal music faves. Keep Jammin! Xx
