BLOGMAS: MY FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES Skip to main content

1 YEAR OF BLOGGING!

I did it, a whole year of blogging! I'm so glad that I stuck at it because I enjoy it so much and can't believe how much progress I've made with it all. Not only that, but I've connected to so many people all around the world which is just amazing, I can't wait to see what the next year working on my blog brings! Anyway, here is a sum up of my blogging journey so far.

What I've achieved
- Just over 50 posts which is equal to roughly 1 per week, and I'm definitely pleased with that! I started off slow and could have probably done a lot more but at least I've got something to work towards! - Hit 1.5k+ followers on my blog Twitter account and also had 30.5k impressions in my best month - Reached 200+ followers on my blog Instagram account after starting to properly use it in May - Had 2562 viewers on Pinterest in one day and an average of around 1000 - Over 9000 pageviews, the fact that I'm on the way to 10,000 blows my mind! - Worked with some brands …

BLOGMAS: MY FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES

There's nothing better than chilling with a warm blanket (hot chocolate and snacks at the ready) to watch a Christmas movie is there? This year I've made it my mission to watch as many as possible and have decided to make a list of my all time favourites and the classics that everyone needs to watch this Christmas.


A no brainer and my absolute favourite. Elf really is the perfect feel good movie to watch during the festive season and Buddy's love of Christmas is infectious. As a huge lover of Christmas I do feel like I relate to his passion for Christmas and personally think I would have made a great elf, should I have grown up in the North Pole - but hey, I guess that is one talent wasted! Without fail I will always watch this movie, usually multiple times because it never gets old and that is why I've had to put it at the top of this list!


Another one for the family and a true classic. The Grinch is a oddly lovable character and the adaption of Dr. Seuss' beloved story has become a Christmas movie tradition in its own right. Jim Carrey really brings the character to life and it is impossible not to get invested by the Grinch's journey into accepting Christmas again!



The intertwined stories and endless list of fantastic cast makes this Rom-Com a holiday favourite for many. With the perfect balance of humour, cheesiness and heart warming scenes, it captures the chaos of Christmas whilst delivering a sentimental message to spend time with the people you love at Christmas. Yes, it is your typical romantic comedy, cringy-ness and all, but really...what more could you want?!!


The 1994 version was actually the first Christmas movie I watched this year because I hadn't watched it for a couple years, plus I love Mara Wilson in it! It is essentially your typical Christmas movie plot where people are sceptical about the idea of Santa but it is one of the best I think. It's charming, well acted and this version stays true to the 1947 original. Tell you what though, I wish we had a Christmas parade like that where I lived, it's right up my street!!


I often find that people either really like this one or hate it, certainly in my house anyway. I have to admit, parts are a bit slow but I grew up watching this film and I still love to watch it! When I was younger I always secretly hoped I would hear the Polar Express train outside my house on Christmas Eve, it seemed so magical and exciting so as a young child obsessed with Christmas, it was the perfect movie!

This was another one I hadn't watched for a couple years, so I knew I had revisit it this year and my god did it make me feel nostalgic! When I was younger I'm pretty sure I based all my knowledge of what the North Pole was like on this film so it definitely brought back memories of that! Plus it's got some pretty funny bits and you can't go wrong with that can you!


There are so many versions of this classic Dickens tale but I do think the Muppet one is maybe my favourite. I wouldn't say that I'm the biggest Muppets fan normally but Michael Caine's Scrooge is perfect and the whole thing is hilarious! It has some iconic lines but still stays true to the traditional story, it's one of my Mum's favourites so I grew up watching it so it's sort of a part of Christmas now!


Another one that is a lot of peoples favourites and a part of many people's Christmas traditions. Personally I would say it isn't one of my absolute favourites but it is still so funny and a great laugh to watch. My favourite scene has to be Kevin's little White Christmas performance, amazing!!


Other favourites of mine include: A Wonderful Life, The Snowman and The Santa Clause 2&3 


Now I know this list could go on and on but I thought I'd just share some of the Christmas classics that I have grown up watching and still love! I'd love to know what your favourite Christmas movie is!

BIRTHDAY TRIP TO LONDON

Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…

MARCH MONTHLY FAVOURITES

March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Weather
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my back...so that wasn't as great!

Fashion 

This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…
