Christmas is in two days, this is not a drill. Seriously guys, THE BIG DAY IS ALMOST HERE!
There’s something about Christmas that means I want to be joyful and share the love. This year there have been some cracking festive posts (not all from people taking part in blogmas), and I want to share these with you. And if you don’t get around to reading all these posts today, it’s a really chill way to spend Christmas Eve, right? Without further ado, here is a list I’ve compiled of my favourite blogmas posts of 2017.
This year I’ve gone a bit mad on three things: Christmas jigsaw puzzles, Christmas presents and Christmas clothing, specifically pyjamas and socks. I have a bit of a thing where I treat myself to a new jumper each year, or at least that’s what I tell myself. This year’s single new jumper has become more than just a jumper and a t-shirt, as well as plenty of sock sets, and three pairs of pyjamas. Christmas Day is so close now, and you might not have picked up the exact clothing you want to wear. Maybe this post will help. Then again, maybe it won’t as we’re crazily close to the big day and I know I can’t bring myself to go shopping!
Christmas Day is nearly here, which means Boxing Day is just one step behind. Last year I went a bit mad in the Boxing Day Sales but I managed to pick up a tip or two when I was spending all my December pay on makeup. Need Boxing Day sales tips? I’m your lady. And are you still Christmas shopping? Check out my Christmas shopping tips post.
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.
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.
I love a Christmas market. I’ve been to my fair share in the UK just this year alone, but I’ve never made it to any on the continent. I’ve always have educational commitments, and now work gets in my way (why did I stay in education?). Over the years I’ve built up quite the wish list of European Christmas markets I’m hoping to visit one day.
