DECEMBER MONTHLY FAVOURITES

December is always a busy month and the one I look forward to most! So, I thought I should share some of the things I enjoyed over the month, which seemed to fly by!

Experience 

Now, of course, I had to mention Christmas as a whole since it is the thing that makes December my favourite time of the year! I enjoy the whole lead up to Christmas and spend most of my time watching Christmas films, listening to Christmas music and eating a lot of food! It’s also really lovely to see family and Christmas Day itself was amazing too. I was lucky to receive some brilliant gifts which you can check out here!

Film

We finally went to see Mary Poppins Returns which completely lived up to my expectations, I'm a big Dinsey fan and new I had to watch this when they announced it. I loved the new story and thought Emily Blunt was absolutely perfect for the role, Lin-Manuel Miranda was also incredible! I also think that the nods to the original were really well done and it’s definitely a film I’d want …

10 CHILDHOOD SNACKS I'D BRING BACK

I was talking with my family recently about snacks that have been discontinued in the U.K and have come up with a list of things I would love to see back on our shelves! Admittedly most of these are chocolate but that's only because there were so many to choose from!

1) Mingles - These are at the top of my list because these were my absolute favourite to have at Christmas time. Bendick's still do some minty alternatives but I'm sorry, why were these ever taken away?! 
2) Calippo Shots - As a child this would always be my choice when the sun decided to show itself. Everyone I knew would also see how quickly they could eat them which almost always ended in brain freeze! I was surprised to see they had been discontinued though. 
3) Mars Delight - I'm pretty sure these were never around long anyway but I would still love to have another. It was just a much lighter and crispier version than an actual Mars Bar, and sometimes that's exactly what you need. 


4) Panda Pops…

WHAT'S IN MY BAG?

Since I have always enjoyed watching the 'What's in my bag' videos on YouTube, I thought why not do it myself on here! I don't necessarily always carry around a bag with me but these are the items I would say are my essentials!

1) Phone - So obviously I always have my phone with me, I currently have the iPhone 6 with a white marble case. Had to use the phone to take the image but you can see my case which I had to carefully pull off without scratching the actual phone to pieces (why do they do that?) 2) Purse/Wallet - Another important item is of course your money and I have mine in this handy little mint green wallet that has an extra big compartment for your phone as well. Plus it was not expensive at all so that is also a bonus! 3) Lip balm - There is nothing I hate more than feeling like you have dry lips and not having any lip balm, so I never leave the house without it nowadays. There are hundreds of different brands but Vaseline is always a winner, the Rosy Lips…
