Christmas Wrapping

Only 6 days to go guys, where has time gone! It doesn't feel like long ago that I was opening last years presents, now I'm wrapping this years! It's crazy!

One of the best things about Christmas for me is the wrapping. I do most of my mums wrapping for her because she cannot stand it But for some reason I absolutely love it! This year I wanted to be very vintage and traditional, I'm not quite sure which word describes it best, I'll let you decide that. 

But anyway, I went for the brown paper theme. I got some parcel paper from my dad's work but you can get it from anywhere. I got some red and white ribbons from tesco and hey presto! Super cute present. There are many different types of ribbon available but I thought red and white was fairly traditional :) 

How have you wrapped your Christmas presents this year?

Christmas Essentials

It's coming to that time of the year again, aka my favourite time of the year, yes it's nearly Christmas! I cannot control my excitement and I want to share my excitement with you by doing another Christmas related post! So this is what my Christmas essentials are!

Fairy lights
No christmas or cosy night in is complete without some fairy lights. I have fairy lights around my headboard which you will see in my christmas decoration post later this week. They just give a cute feel to any room.

Christmas films
Watching christmas films is one of the easiest ways to get into the christmas spirit. Ones I highly recommend are Elf and Home Alone 1/2/3. Christmas 24 on sky is a good channel to watch, it's like constant christmassy goodness!

Hot Chocolate
When you're sitting in on a Friday night, watching a christmas movie, there is nothing better than drinking a cup of hot chocolate and stuffing your face with chocolate. Delicious!

Christmassy PJ's/onesie
There are some gorgeous pajamas and onesie's out there to make you feel all snug on a cold winter evening. Primark pj's are the best, I highly recommend them!

Skin care products
Even though in the winter we seem to get lazy and tired, you cannot let your skin suffer. This is why it's a good idea to get moisturisers that keep your skin hydrated during the cold. Not just for your face either, the rest of your body is affected too which is why I recommend the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter.

There you go, there are my Christmas essentials! Do you have any other essentials?

Christmas Tag!

It seems like I haven't written a blog post in foreverrrr! Sorry about that, I'm still here! After reading through a few blogs I saw that the Christmas Tag was becoming quite popular so I decided to take a few questions I liked and answer them for you :) 

Do you prefer a real or synthetic Christmas tree?
For as long as I remember, I've always had a synthetic tree because I find it'll be a lot cheaper and less messy!

Favourite colour scheme when decorating the tree?
We don't really have a "theme" on the family Christmas tree,it's all a bit of everything! I'd probably say if I had my own tree it would be red white, and silver!

Do you get dressed up on Christmas day?
Kind of, myself and my brother usually receive an outfit for Christmas so we usually wear that.

Favourite Christmas movie?
ELF by far! 

Favourite Christmas song?
Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is you, or any Michael Buble's songs!

When do you open Christmas presents?
We open all of the presents in the morning once we've had breakfast. Then my auntie and uncle come round later to deliver their presents!

There you have it - my Christmas tag! I tag all of those reading this to do this tag and leave a link as a comment! :)

OOTN | House party!

Friday just gone I was invited to a house party by one of my best friends, Zoe. I genuinely didn't have a single clue on what to wear, so after a lot of searching through blogs I finally came up with an outfit which I'm now going to share with you!

I wore this cream, lace crop top which was from New Look in the Generation section, this was only £9.99 in the summer. I paired it with a pair of high waisted, wet look disco pants which I got from Primark for £7.00 which is a bargain. I wore my maroon converse with this to add a little bit of colour and wore a red lip for the same effect! 

What do you wear to house parties?
