    My Christmas Bucket List For 2018

    Blogmas Day 20: Christmas Bucket List | Essential Twenty

    In my first year of blogmas, I compiled a bucket list. It didn’t go too successfully as about a third of the way through the month I dislocated my knee and that put a bit of a dampener on things. I considered putting together one at the start of blogmas 2017, but ended up not getting around to it. So here I am today, with my 2018 Christmas Bucket List.

    My Christmas Food Traditions

    My Christmas Food Traditions | Essential Twenty

    Okay, this post is so not what I had planned today. As you can see from the header image, it was suppose to be about my amazing attempt at my first ever gingerbread house. I don’t like gingerbread, so I’d never felt the need to make one but something changed this year. Unfortunately my walls broke so I ended up with gingerbread slabs which everyone ate – at least they were tasty! Instead, I’m going to talk about my family’s Christmas food traditions.

    December So Far

    Blogmas Day 16 | Essential Twenty
    Today’s post was going to be all about my trip to Lincoln Christmas Market, but I had another idea. Whilst I could’ve taken a ton of photos, as I was spending time with someone else I just stopped thinking about Essential Twenty for a bit. I enjoyed the day (apart from getting elbowed by a really rude woman pushing past me to get on the train) away from my camera and instead I’m talking about everything I’ve done through December so far.

    My Ideal Christmas Eve Box

    Blogmas Day 15: My Ideal Christmas Eve Box | Essential TWenty

    Christmas Eve boxes didn’t exist when I was growing up. Or maybe they did, and it just wasn’t something my parents bought into. I do know of a few families who’d get new PJs every Christmas Eve, but we definitely weren’t one of those families. Now Christmas Eve has its own present opening celebration with a box to open early. There’s quite a few things that I know I’d put in my ideal Christmas Eve box, and I might be able to help you if you’re stuck for ideas and you are responsible for putting one together.

    My 2017 Christmas Jumper Wish List

    Blogmas Day 12: My Christmas Jumper Wish List | Essential Twenty

    I bloody love Christmas jumpers. In fact, Christmas clothes of any sort I’m all eyes and ears for. Any other holiday you can forget it, but give me a tacky jumper during December and I’m one happy lady. In fact, give it another year or two and I’ll probably own enough festive jumpers and t-shirts to allow me to wear a different one all month! I just love treating myself to a Christmas jumper or two every year.
