What are you looking for?
12 Dec 2017


After the snow this morning I am well and truly in the Christmas spirit. I'm even finding myself singing along to Christmas songs around the house! Some years I'm not too bothered but It's safe to say I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year. I thought I would write a little list of all the things I am looking forward to this Christmas season. 

Christmas Parties

My work Christmas party is next Saturday night and I am so looking forward to getting all dressed up and going out for a lovely meal, drinks and dancing with my colleagues and friends. It's always such a fun and festive night complete with singing chefs, Christmas dinner, mince pies, prosecco and dancing the night away to 'Fairytale of New York'. I could share my outfit and make-up details on here if you guys are interested? Let me know in the comments!

Food, Food & More Food

Where do I start when it comes to food?! Christmas is a right of passage to eat all the food and not feel guilty. From the tubs of roses to the Christmas dinner itself everything is so delicious and I am really looking forward to indulging. Lucky for me I don't have to make the dinner, thank God as that seems like far too much pressure. I would like to contribute a bit more this year though and maybe make a starter. Let me know in the comments of some good Christmas starters.

Time off to Relax

I think anyone who is working really appreciates the Christmas break. I'm hopefully going to have the whole week off so I am really looking forward to spending time at home with my family relaxing and not having to worry about any responsibilities. I feel like Christmas time is the only time of the year you can switch off and do nothing because that's what it is for!

Giving Gifts

This is so cliche I know but I really do prefer giving gifts than receiving them. I can just buy myself whatever I want so getting gifts doesn't excite me that much (I am appreciative none the less though!) I just love the feeling of seeing a smile on someones face when you get them something. I have pretty much all my presents bought and wrapped now waiting to be opened!

Playing Games

Christmas is literally the only time of the year that I get together with my whole family, we enjoy each others company and play games. From making jigsaws and playing board games with my nieces and nephew to having a midnight game of cards and a glass of wine with my parents and siblings. It's so nice to sit down together, put our phones away and do something fun.

Eeeep writing this has made me even more excited for Christmas. Less than two weeks to go now! I can hardly believe it.

I would love to know how you spend your Christmas holidays? What is it that you are really looking forward to? Let me know in the comments down below.
