12 Days of Natsmas: Christmas Present Inspiration (4)

I am writing this whilst watching “The Holiday” and Jude Law just said ‘You’re lovely’ to Cameron Diaz, so basically…im very happy right now!

But anyway on with todays post, and what a complex one I have for you today. It’s something we get worry about every year, so I thought that if I told you mine for the year, they may inspire you.

But first I must say, you probably tell yourself every year, but try to get them done as early as you can, cause IT JUST MAKES IT EASIER!!!

But anyway, I wont judge. We’re all friends here. So let us start with the REAL head of my house hold, me mamma.

This year she actually chose her own Christmas present (though, i dont think she remembers!) a few months ago, which was a bamboo wind chime. This particular one was from The Range (an AMAZING homewear shop we have in the UK). Unfortunately, that particular one is now out of stock. However I found an equally pretty one on the fantastic world of ebay which better come in time for Christmas. So yes, there you, not your typical christmas present, but special all the same.

Next up is my grand papa (my dad, not grandad – im not sure why I called him that). I actually bought him his gift MONTHS AGO because…well earlier this year we became a little bit obsessed with this little known TV show, you may have heard of it “The Walking Dead”? Clearly thats a joke, we’re a bit late on the band wagon with that one. But yes we had the season 1 boxset so I bought him upto season 5. Simple, yet literally perfect. However, thats a bit basic on its own so I plan on attempting to get my hands on a paddington christmas decoration that m&s are selling, however online they say SOLD OUT sooooo…im a little concerned, but there may be a way…

Next up is the burded many sisters must face, the brothers. I have 2 much older, but much nicer brothers than…other…ones…sorry not sure where I was going with that. Anyway, the oldie is getting his own jar of Biscoff spread (since he always steals ours) and also some very warm PJ bottoms which he actually asked for. He was probably one of the easier people to buy for.

The younger one (still older than me) is recieving some spicey chilli sauce since any thing we cook isnt hot enough apparently. He will also open the most exciting (in my opinion) present i am giving this year which i believe is Per-Fect for him. It combines a book, lord of the rings and comedy as its a parody story of one of the most famous series’ in the world. Its called “the bored of the rings” and i found it in a little book store over a year ago.

So there you go, an insight into some of the gifts im giving this year. If you want any more ideas/inspiration or just simply what im getting my other families and friends, let me know!

Anyway, i hope you enjoyed and I shall see you tomorrow!!!

12 Days of Natsmas: PLAN (1)

HAPPY 2 YEARS TO NATSCHATS ON WORDPRESS!!!

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,

Xx

Get Over It: Short story/Advice article

I know, im updating the old blog AGAIN! What has gotten into me?

Anyway I wrote a short story/advice article thingy which I though you may wish to read, I dedicate it to anyone going through heartbreak. I hope you enjoy it as I certainly do, it apparently should take you 3 WHOLE MINS to read so don’t worry about taking up too much time out of your very busy lives. Enjoy and see you soon, Xx

 

Confusion. That’s the primary source of emotion. Why? Just, why? You thought things were going so well, clearly you were wrong. It doesn’t matter how they did it. It just hurts that they did. No matter what the inspirational quotes and magazines tell you, at this moment, you do need them. Whether it’s been one date or 143, if you’re divorced, newly single or have always technically been single but wishing for more. It hurts.

Of course like any big grievance you go through the famous 5 stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Everyone becomes a love guru telling you this, but they always seem to miss out the most important question that any person who’s in pain wants to know. How long? Obviously you know from any lecture, that nothing lasts forever. But, forever is a very long time and I’d kind of like this torture to end sooner rather than later.

My story is no different. We were on our 14th date, 36th if you count the chilled days at each other’s houses (I did). We were coming to the abrupt end of a coffee break together in our lunch break. The he told me. Another girl was it? Longing to be single? Moving away? Nope. None of those Rom com excuses. Lesson one anyone learns with love is that it isn’t like the movies, obviously, that’s why this is a book. One day or another, they will dump you. Doesn’t matter if it’s a he or a she or just an it, everything ends. No use in dwelling on it though because it won’t happen just once. Even those who marry their first love are lying to themselves. That was not their first love because love comes in all forms and positions. When you’re just a baby you love your parents, for some of you fortunate few, you still do, somewhere under that shield of adulthood and independence.

Since then it’s been the latest boyband member, the one with the cheeky smile was always my fave. Or maybe you were more of a mysterious cast member type, the one in a popular TV show or soap opera where he wasn’t a bad boy, just misunderstood. They both come to an end, either through finding their own love interest or you simply came to your senses and realised their whole life that you saw, was just an act. At least you did grow out of it; some people are forever fantasizing about being the one who gets chosen out of a crowd of millions.

And then there’s the school crushes, wow, they never get old do they. If you don’t like anyone, you’re lying to yourself. There’s always that one boy that catches your eye and then makes your mouth drop (and maybe even your pants if you’re lucky enough to have a reciprocated crush – never happens). And that brings the cycle all the way back to the current situation, a break up. Hurts, yeah?

But don’t you see, you’ve loved before, and thus, you will love again. You may even be broken up with again, or maybe this time, you’ll be the one to do the dumping. Either way, everyone goes through it, heartbreak is tough but, it’s the only way to know you’ve truly loved. Knowing that you once have loved is better than never loving, so, in your own time, under your own circumstances, you will…

Get Over It.

Not so New – One of the first stories I wrote

Good day my little munchkins. I am so sorry this post is a day late but i couldn’t upload last night cause my internet is being very slow at the moment. Today I thought I’d do something rather embarrassing and show you one of my first short stories. This is was (and still is) published on an amazing little site called MOVELLAS, which I would highly recommend to anyone (more for the younger people) who love writing stories. This was first “published” on the 10th of February 2014 (nearly 3 years ago today)! It’s cringey as anything but is one of my most popular stories so I hope you enjoy it! It’s not finsihed because I kinda gave up cause Im a lazy B**** but it’s called Not So New if you’re really that interested!

1. The morning. 

The alarm goes off, shrieking at me to get up. But I know it won’t work, I’m lying in one of those positions that you just don’t want to leave. So I just lay there savoring those last few minutes I have before I really am running late. But of course as per usual I don’t just lay, I sleep there. When I eventually do pull myself away from my peaceful haven I can tell I have hardly anytime left so I cross the ‘No so important things when you’re running late’ off my list of things to do in the morning. This includes; washing my hair (you can always use dry shampoo), tidying my room (at least I can walk though the piles of stuff) and finishing my book report (I’ll do it in class. So my first task to tackle is breakfast.

I trail downstairs dressed in my PJ’s and a half eaten/attacked by my cat, Tabby dressing gown. I enter the kitchen and am instantly targeted by the feral beast I call a pet. She’s obviously hungry, I am too. I know mum’s weekly shopping trip is due today so there won’t be much to choose from. She doesn’t make my breakfast as she has no other reason to get up till 8. But to be fair its 7:55 now and I know she probably won’t get up within 5 minutes. I’m betting half an hour.

So I’m here alone in the kitchen rummaging around in the cupboard for something to when I find… and empty packet of pop-tarts. Great! I put them back, I’m really not up for tidying. I eventually settle for a bowl of dry (we have no milk) special K. Yum! Then, realizing I have 10 minutes till I have to run for the bus, scurry upstairs and into the bathroom. I wash my face nearly free of spots and dirt. It’s kind of weird how girls scrub of basically a hole layer of skin the apply an inch of makeup – which is pretty much more dirt. I put of foundation and then grab my eyeliner realizing too late that its blunt. I now look like a Goth/panda – and mascara. I then run to my room where my pile school uniform/bed sheet pile awaits me. Our school uniform isn’t actually that bad compared to some peoples. All we have is a plain white shirt and black skirt finished off with a overly sized blazer and awkwardly shaped tie.

Then it’s time to tackle my hair. I don’t even know what to do with it anymore. It’s just so ugh… I run my brush thought it a few times (wait, I think run is a bit too soft a word, more like shove!) and watch it get bigger and bigger. I swear it looks like a slow motion explosion. Well to calm myself down I put the radio on. ‘You love me like XO’ yeah, not today. ‘I’ll be thinking about you!’ No thank you! ‘DIANA! Let me the one to put a fire…’ Yeah…no! ‘Our love was made, made in the USA!’ I think I see a resemblance here… Oh wait! I run over to the calendar which was kindly decorated by my 3 year old cousin – not a good look! The 14th of course, Valentine’s Day! That’s good the book report isn’t due in till the 17th!

Anyway back to my hair.

2. Pretend to know him! 

I’m half way down the road when I sense that today is going to be a weird day. I mean I walk on my own to school because all my other friends either get a lift to school or live in the opposite direction. It’s not as though a zombie apocalypse is about to happen or something it’s just that I literally am the only person walking on their own. Everyone else is either skipping hand-in-hand with their boyfriend/girlfriend or walking with their friend and stalking their prey a.k.a the group of boys/girls in front of them. Seriously I don’t know what it is but on this day everyone seems to get hyped up about the idea of being in love. Everyone gets sad about being alone on V day, but what about the other 364 days of the year?

I notice that on the other side of the road is a boy I’ve not seen before. Surprisingly he’s actually walking on his own. But there are 3 girls galloping behind him giggling every time he looks wearily behind him. He suddenly catches me looking at him and starts to wave. Oh no, I think do I know him? I hate these kinds of moments. I decide to pretend I know who he is and smile back. Bad move, after I smiled at him he suddenly ran across the road towards me! Oh dear, what do I say I can’t even remember his name!  When he reached he pulled me into an embrace. Panicking, I just went mute for a moment and said nothing. I was wondering what to do when he whispered in my ear ‘Hey, sorry about this but can I pretend I know you to get away from them girls over there.’ I look over his shoulder and see the 3 of them standing there looking puzzled.  ‘Oh!’ I say realizing what he had been doing. ‘Hey… um.’ I still don’t know his name. ‘Daniel.’ He whispers. ‘Oh yeah, hey Dan! How are you?’ He suddenly smiles and I don’t know why. But, it feels me with that weird gooey feeling that some girls say they get. And I swear his smile is contagious as I suddenly smile back and then for some unknown reason, burst out laughing. Not the small, cute giggle your meant to do around boys. A huge idiotic rumble. He gives me a odd look then joins in and for about 5 minutes the two of us are nearly rolling on the floor laughing.

After that random attack of hysterics I hear the school bell ringing just up the road. This not only means we’re late it means that we’ll get a detention after school because it’ll take over a minute to get there if we run now! ‘Oh great, late on my first day!’ He says. ‘It’s your first day, I thought I hadn’t seen you before?’

‘Yeah, and it may not mean much to you, and it normally wouldn’t to me either, but I don’t want to be late so I think it’s time we started running.’ So we start scrambling down the road desperate to get to class. WE reach the gates and before I know it we’re powering through the corridors. I can’t believe how quickly people have got to class when I remember. ‘WAIT, It’s Friday!’

‘Yeah, so?’

‘We have assembly on Fridays!’ Knowing we have to get to the other end of the school in under 30 seconds I suggest we think of an excuse. ‘I know!’ he says ‘We could just say that I got lost and that you were showing me the way.’ I think to myself a while then decide its better than: sorry miss we started laughing for no reason. But as we get closer to the hall doors I can’t help but hope that school was cancelled today even though I’ve already seen everyone go to school. 

3. Assembly 

‘Late on your first day I see!’ My thoughts ae broken by the booming voice of our head teacher, o’dear. Well her name actually miss o’hear, but since she was introduced my my form tutor as miss o’daear (she hicuped) it just stuck! ‘Sorry miss,’ Dan replied ‘I got lost and…’

‘No excuses, I’ll see you at detention, you too Anna!’ Unlucky for Dan there is NEVER an excuse when it comes to our headmistress.

When I reach my seat in assembly I’m instantly baffled with questions about how I know the new boy. I just mumbled something about our parents and began speaking to my best friend Tris. ‘So,’ she began ‘Get any Valentines card this morning?’

‘What do you think?’ I asked. It’s not that im unhappy about it or anything. I just don’t see what the big deal is although I guess I’ve never had a real boyfriend so wouldn’t know what it was like. I cant help glimpsing up at Dan across the hall through the constand sound of miss o’dear barking about the importance of respect in the school. Once he looked back and I caught he’s gaze. It was only quick but I got the melting chocolate sensation again. I didn’t loo up again after that as I knew I would just end up going bright pink or something cringy like that!

4. School then DETENTION! 

Through the day I couldn’t help but look up at the clock longing for the day to end. It’s not that I want to go to detention it’s just… I really wanted to see Dan again. I had looked out all day but didn’t get so much as a glimpse of his tangled brown hair.

After school I pretty much sprinted to the toilets and looked at myself in the mirror. After applying more mascara and lipgloss I ran back down the corridor and into the detention room. Unsurprisingly me and Dan are the only ones to turn up. Everyone else probably wants to get home on a Friday – weird right? So I was basically made to sit there for an hour or so. But after half an hour I think Mr. Davis got bored cause he sends us home with a ‘Don’t do it again.’

5. Going home – alone? 

So it’s just me and Dan walking home. I think that I should feel awkward, but I don’t. We talk all the way to my front door before I realize he’s walked me home. ‘This is gonna sound a really weird but, do you wanna come in?’ I ask him.

‘This is gonna sound even weirder but, ok!’

I only said this cause I know mum wont be back till 5 and it’s 4:15. Why am I so comfortable around him I literally met him about 8 hours ago. ‘So,’ he asks me. ‘Who’s your valentine?’ Thinking it was a weird question I respond with ‘No one, i don’t have a boyfriend, you?’

‘No I don’t have a boyfriend either,’ he says smiling at me ‘or a girlfriend!’

‘Yeah that’s what I meant!’ After half an hour of a house tour, endless questions and quirky laughs He tells me he has to get back. But as I lead him to the door he says ‘Um….Anna? Do you wanna go out with me tomorrow?’

‘Yeah, ok. I can show you around and stuff.’

‘Yeah, I’ve actually lived here all my life I just moved schools so I just wanted to spend time with you.’

‘umskuraflen!’ I was completely gob smacked so didn’t know what to say! But luckily he somehow got what I meant and smiled then left. Not before letting me give him my number though.

I watched him leave and ran up to my room and collapsed on my bed. The chocolate in my stomach had somehow turned into fireworks and were exploding all over the place. I ant believe it! Does this mean that I’m going on a date? When will he call me? What should I wear? All these questions were fizzing round my head so fast I didn’t hear the door bang and my um come up stairs. I was jumping around my room when she came in. ‘A boy?’ She asked. I don’t know how she knew but when I smiled brightly at her I think she knew she had guessed correctly! After she tells me dinner’s at 6 I throw myself on the bed and just lay there recapping every bit of him and the day. I then text Tris telling her that I’m going out with him tomorrow. Just after I put it down it bleeps. Expecting it to be Tris I pick it up. But on the screen saver it says 1 new message – unknown number. I guess I didn’t have to wait long at all then…

6. Texting…A lot!

Me and Dan have been talking for a while now. It’s amazing how much you can learn about someone in the space of… 6 HOURS!!! Oh my god! Its 1:30 in the morning! And when I say 6 hours I’m not including the 1 hour before dinner and 2 hours on Facebook. Wow I need to go to sleep otherwise tomorrow will be a complete blur, well let’s face it. It kinda is anyway. Any day at scho… oh hand on its Saturday tomorrow! Thank the holy pancake! I love lay-ins! I’ll just tell Dan what I just thought…wait why would I do that, I barely know him and besides I’m really tired. Oh no too late I pressed send. Looks like I’ve gotta stay up to wait for his…. Re…ply…

I awaken to the sound of the Hoover. OH NO I fell asleep. I check my phone to see id Dan’s angry at me. Why would he like me now – he probably thinks I’m a lazy, disgusting, stu….Oh hang on. Awwww. He realized I had fallen asleep and said ‘sweet dreams beautiful xxx’. I can just feel that chocolate butterfly sensation bubbling up inside me! Oh hang on I’ve got another text. It’s from Tris. She saw me walk home with Dan yesterday and wants to know all about it. I text her saying to meet me at Costa in 30 mins, realizing it’s already 11:30, and rush to get dressed. I’m not the kind of girl to spend ages perfecting my hair and makeup, but I have this really annoyingly frizzy hair that always seems to make me look like a lion after it’s brushed! So today I decided to pull it into a ponytail and throw on a off the shoulder tee and jeans. I run down stairs and nearly run strait into my mum. My dad’s off on another work trip probably in grays. ‘Where are you off too in such a hurry? Not seeing that boy again are you?’ I gave her a glare and said I was just off to see Tris. ‘But I might be going out with him a bit later, if that’s ok.’ She looked at me for a while – like she was studying me and then said ‘Under one condition – I get too meet him first!’

 7. Tris

Perfect, no really it is. Who wouldn’t want their ridiculously embarrassing mother to meet the hottest boy in school? Oh yeah I know – me. But I don’t have time to worry about that I’m meeting up with Tris soon and I need to work out what to tell her. I kind of ditched  her yesterday after sitting in detention with Dan. Oh and that’s the other thing I should really tell her about…Dan.

I’m sitting at a table next to the window so of course Tris sees me straight away. ‘Well hello there little miss trouble!’ She says as she enters the café. Man, she’s annoying. I smiled at her and she sat down on the chair opposite me. ‘so tell me about Dan.’ Uhhh…’How do you know about tha-him?’                                  

‘I have my ways…’ She sees me looking at her with my really look and know that’s not gonna fool me. ‘how do you not know? The whole school’s been talking about it. I mean no-offence but your not the type to normally go out with the hot ones?’ I am a little hurt but I let her get away with it this time with a little kick of her shin under the table. ‘ow!’         

‘You deserve it – WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME EARLIER? This is so embarrassing…’                                                                                         ‘How?’                                                                                                         

‘Cause everyone’s talking about me. You know I hate that sort of attention.’                                                                                                     

‘Well I personally would love it! Everyone talking about if my relationship would last, where I’m going for my next date. It would be like being a celebrity!’ Of course this sort of life would be perfect for Tris. Ever since primary school she’s wanted to be a famous actor or singer. She even went thought the dancer stage but she decided to leave that to me. That’s the one and pretty much only thing I’m known for… dancing. But I don’t want to take it up as a career. Being a dancer is a lot of tuff work and it’s not normally long lasting either unless you teach it. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it. I love it really, even if I am the centre of attention. It doesn’t matter where I am; when I’m dancing I can just let myself go… ‘Well I’m not a celebrity. I’m a normal teenage girl trying to have a normal relationship with a normal teenage boy!’

‘I know, I know… shall we change the subject? How’s your parents and Taylor..oh and the snails?’ My older brother Taylor is obsessed with science, nature and weird animals. 2 years ago he bought some giant African snails but then he went to university and he’s new house mate thought they were stupid so he left them here. Which means Tabby has 4 new toys to play with oh and their thousands of babies!

‘Their fine, but. Oh Tris what am I gonna do?’

TA DA! What do ya think? Embarrassing? I told ya so. Anyway if you made it through the whole story thankyou, i hope you have a lovely day. See you next week! Xx

Blogmas Day 23: Memory Log Tip

Omg it’s Christmas Eve Eve already! How? It seems like only the other day we started Blogmas and now we’re nearly at the end. You know what, even though I did find it annoying having to come up with a new idea to blog about each day and having to actually get off my lazy ass to write something, I think I am actually going to miss you. I know it’ll only be a few days before I start blogging again (most probably in the new year) but just think that’s NEXT YEAR!!!

Anyway for today’s blog post I wanted to give you a little tip which will help to make your life seem that little bit better. This is a great idea for when your feeling down or hopeless as every time I read mine it completely boosts my mood (which can seem like an impossibility at times). It’s also incredibly simple as all it requires is a pen and paper (or ya know the notepad of your phone).

I call it my “moments to remember” page but you can come up with a much more personal or creative name if you see fit. Basically all you do is bulletpoint little moments that made you smile. This could be anything from seeing an act of kindness to experiencing a favourite activity. As some of you may still be a bit confused I have listed some of mine below, I don’t have many but that’s fine as the list will grow as you get through life which is what makes it so magical:

  •  How excited the male Stuard was when you got off the plane in Hollywood (2015) and he said “that’s where he (Tom Hiddleston) sat” – October 26th 2015
  •  My A Level psychology teacher asking to see my dinosaur socks on Breast Cancer Awareness Day (we had to dress pink), I talked about wearing them the day before, so I had to take my boot off in the middle of a lesson – October 21st 2016
  • Putting my stocking on Christmas Eve eve 2016 and checking inside (for some reason?!?) and finding a “simple pleasures” lip balm in there – December 23rd 2016

For those of you able to read dates you will discover that, that last one was made just today about 30 mins ago which is what inspired this post. These moments may not mean anything to you and you may be wondering what makes them so special. But that doesn’t matter. In your list you are going to be the only person reading them. This is fantastic as it shows that you alone have control over your mood and your life which may just give you enough confidence to accomplish what you need to that day.

I hope this little tip in some way helps you. And if it does LET ME KNOW. You know how much I love hearing your views (no matter how mad you may think they are).

Merry Blogmas!

Blogmas Day 19: My Christmas Day Outfit

I AM THE WORST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!

ffs I missed it again, I am so, so sorry about the catasrphie which is Blogmas 2016. I dont know what’s happened, it all started off so well. My excuse for last night is, I forgot about it all day and then when I went out with my friends for a mini xmas quiz and party I suddenly remembered and asked my blogger friend (Amelia – http://swiftbooks13.blogspot.com/) to take apicture of what I was wearing as a little: what to wear at Christmas guide, nut then I proceeded to get a fair amount of alcohol in my system and well… the rest is history. So that is what I will do right now and we’re all gonna have to try to imagine that this blogpost went up yesterday, okay? On the upside, I did get round to filming a cheeky Vlog yesterday of a christmas Q and A whilst wrapping type thing. It may never see the light of day (YouTube) because im pretty sure what I filmed was a load of Sh**, but oh well.

Hello Friends today ( 😉 ) I am going to be sharing with you what I wore to a very casual Christmas meet up and what I thought would be a great idea to wear on Christmas Day aswell.

These are just basic skinny black jeans from New Look and a super soft Christmassy T-Shirt with 3D holly and different textured words from Matalan.

As it is cold outside I also put this gorgeously fluffy (on the inside) onesie from Tesco because I love the print and it’s christmas so you can get away with wearing one out and about…or ya know round a friends house for a quiz night.

There you go, thats the outfit I shall almost definetly be wearing come christmas day.

Merry Blogmas!

Blogmas Day 7: Get to know me (Christmas edition)

Jesus Blogmas is going past quickly! (Excuse the pun) and today I thought I’d do a little getting to know me questions and answers. But of course as Christmas is upon us this will be Christmas themed/related. Please do feel free to copy this idea for you own blogs and comment so I can check your ones out! So here it goes (don’t judge me too harshly):

1. What colour is your tree decorated this year (if you have one which you should as this is a Christmas quiz)?

This year I decided to decorate my tree with garlands of little gold balls and red ornaments, I will upload a picture below for those interested:
2. What is your favourite Christmas Drink?

Now this is a tricky one as I have quite a few. I love a hot chocolate but tbh I drink them all year round anyway so it’s not very Christmassy. If I’m ill then I’ll fix myself a hot honey and lemon but my ultimate Christmassy drink would probably have to be a good mulled cider (or wine if I’m feeling extra fancy). This drinks great cause it warms you up and tastes literally like Christmas in a cup (and has a cheeky added extra of being a bit boozy)!

3. What meal do you typically have on Christmas Day?

Normally I have a typical Turkey Roast Dinner with all the trimming and my family has Christmas Pudding for dessert (I don’t actually like it so I have a bit of Yule log). This year though we’re mixing it up my having a normal everyday meal on Christmas Day and having my Christmas dinner on Boxing Day when I’m with the rest of my family

4. Who do you normally spend Christmas with?

Pretty much every Christmas for me is spent with My mum, Dad, 2 brothers, brothers fiancé, Aunty and Uncle, Nan, 2 cousins and cousins girlfriend. Yeah I know crazy right? What’s even crazier is often most of them all sleep at my parents house. That’s up to 12 of us under one roof! It’s so fun and never has a dull moment which is why Christmas is gonna be weird this year. This year I’m spending Christmas Day with my parents, brother and nan and seeing my cousins and girlfriend and other brother and his fiancé. Then I’ll be going to my aunty and uncles house in Devon on the 28th. It’s gon be busy!!!

And there you have it! 4 quick Christmas questions to let you know a little more about me, feel free to answer them in the comments And of course Happy Blogmas

💠 “THE ORIGINAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BITES” Little balls of cookie dough goodness covered in a chocolate type coating

💠  “BARRATT DIB DAB” Strawberry lolly with bag of sherbet

💠 “NIK NAKS” corn snacky thing

💠 “DORITOS” All the flavours of gorgeous crisps!!!

All these Snacks are available in the uk but if you are from another country I’m afraid you might have a bit more trouble finding them!

Feel free to comment your own guilty snacks, come on we all have them!
