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: Fave Baubles and my Tree (2)

Good Morning/Noon/Night my loves and welcome to Natsmas Day 2!

Today’s blog post also has a very short youtube video to go with it which you can go to here: Natsmas Day 2

Below are my picks for my favourite baubles on my tree this year which will be most unhelpful to you seeing as I have no clue where they are from, but anyway – here we go

I mean show me a bauble that better embodies Christmas.

I love the colours, i love the patterns and how else would you top off Christmas than with a little bit a shine (the gem in the middle) – PERFECTION!

I mean… LOOK AT IT…I feel like a posh ass b*tch. This is quite possibly the fanciest bauble on my tree. I mean look at that shiny bod, those swirls of gold and the little baby silver gem leaves. Gorgeous.

I swear she does have a face, the flash was justa tad bright. This little gem I actually bought my self many moons ago when I was a wee girlie. It was never intended to be Christmas decoration but has gained the title after being accidentally put away with the other xmas boxes. I just love the colours and her dress and winds so much – PLUS check the pointed toes, girls got strong ankles.

Last but not least we have this beautiful specimen that I actually made myself with some buttons and cork and glue. I am quite proud with how it turned out but I will take no credit for the idea as it wasn’t mine and im sure if you really want you can find instructions online and believe me if I can do it, anyone can.

Hope you enjoyed that little post and also my very short vid

See you tomorrow and Happy Natsmas!

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
