2 YEARS OF BLOGGING!

As of today, I've officially been blogging for 2 years which seems so strange to say! I feel like I've shared a fair amount but thought I would do a get to know me better post as it's a bit of fun! 

Favourite film?
 I can never seem to choose just one favourite but I'm pretty into mystery thriller type films - especially ones with a twist! For instance, I love things like Shutter Island and Inception, anything that keeps you guessing or has an ambiguous ending. I also enjoy a good comedy, one that springs to mind is Hot Fuzz as it also has that twist element. 
What is my Zodiac sign and do I agree with it?
Well, I was born on March 10th, making me a Pisces. I wouldn’t say I’m overly clued up about horoscopes and astrology, I do find it interesting though! In terms of me relating to the general description of a Pisces, there are some aspects that describe me well for sure. In particular, the creative, charismatic, intuitive and adaptable traits describe me pretty well. A…

BLOGMAS: CHRISTMAS THIS OR THAT


I feel like everyone has certain preferences and traditions about what makes Christmas, the Christmas they know and love, so I thought I'd incorporate that into a 'this or that' post!

Real or fake tree?

I love having a real tree, they smell so Christmassy and we got ours this weekend! 

Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

It has to be Christmas Day for me, it's my favourite day of the year because it's all so much fun! Also, you can't beat Christmas Dinner, can you! Though I do love the whole build up so this was a hard one.

Open presents all at once or spread out?

Ever since I was little we've always done it all at once! It's so exciting, I don't think I could wait and spread it out through the day, haha!

Eggnog or hot chocolate?

Hot chocolate is my go-to drink around this time of the year so this is an easy one for me. A classic hot chocolate or I also enjoy peppermint, chocolate orange and cinnamon flavoured ones too.

Tree ornaments or lights?

I feel like a tree isn't complete without either, but I really like how pretty the lights look so I'll have to go with that!

Indoor or outdoor decorations? 

Ooh, I do like seeing everyone's outdoor decorations but it's got to be inside for me. I can't wait to decorate our house, it makes me feel so festive!

Elf or Home Alone?

Home Alone is great but Elf. All day, every day!! It's my favourite Christmas film by far! 

Gingerbread or Christmas cookies?

Hmm, I much prefer chocolate than biscuits but I think I'll go with gingerbread on this one.

Wake up early or sleep in?

Wake up early of course, so you have as much of the day to enjoy everything!

Sweet or savoury Christmas snacks?

Now this is a tough one because there are so many options for both, but I could eat my favourite savoury Christmas snacks all day without feeling sick, so it will have to be that!

Star or Angel?

Star for me, we used to have an angel on the top of our tree when I was younger but we've had a star for years now and I really like it. 

Christmas jumper or pyjamas?

I'm all for Christmas jumpers but I'm obsessed with wearing a cosy pair of festive pyjamas in the evenings. Also, we've had a tradition in our house to get a new pair on Christmas Eve each year so I think that's part of why I'd choose it over a jumper!

Roast potatoes or Yorkshire Puddings?

Possible controversial one here, but I would have to go with Yorkshire Puddings, I just love them with gravy poured over!

Chocolate Advent Calendar or Gift Advent Calendar?

Always a classic chocolate one for me! I would like to have a gift based one as there are so many out there now but I do always look forward to the little chocolate every morning!

Red or green?

I love the dark green, Christmas tree colour but red makes me feel super festive so I'll have to go with that. 

Coloured or white lights?

White, but specifically warm white. I just think they look so pretty and make the room look extra festive! Although, we did use to have coloured lights when I was growing up and that was pretty fun too!

Sprouts or no sprouts?

I'm a no sprouts person personally as I'm really not a fan of them, nothing against having them as part of the dinner but I just won't be putting them on my plate!

Songs or movies?

This is quite possibly the hardest to answer as both are a massive part of making me feel festive, I really couldn't imagine my Christmas without them! I genuinely think I could go round in circles and still never be able to pick one over the other!

Turkey or pigs in blankets?

Oh, pigs in blankets for sure. They're one of my favourite parts about Christmas dinner!

Christmas tree up early or late?

Early, I love how festive it makes the room feel! the 1st of December is my ideal date. 

Mince pies or Yule log?

I've never been a fan of mince pies so I'll have to say yule log for this one, can't go wrong with chocolate and I love how they're decorated!

Stockings or no stockings?

Yes to stockings! I love them, especially hung up by the fireplace and I always found it so exciting to open up some smaller presents before the main ones. 

Christmas in a hot or cold climate?

Oh, cold without a doubt and I'd love a proper white Christmas too!

This was a pretty fun post to actually and I'd love to know other people's choices, let me know on the comments or if you decide to do your own post!

  3. Love this post! I can't imagine waking up late on Christmas day, especially when younger it's so exciting! And I don't know how someone could spread out the presents across the day?! I can imagine it's quite good as it makes the day last, but also it must be really hard to not open them all at once!

    Amy,

    1. Oh I know, when I was younger we used to spend Christmas at my grandparents every so often and all the adults would be chatting for ages whilst my sisters and I were just so eager so open the presents, haha! x

30 SHOWS TO WATCH ON NETFLIX

As an avid user of Netflix, I am more than aware of the time spent trying to find something rather than actually watching anything. I've gone through many different series on there so I thought I'd share some here! I know there is quite a few I've missed off that people would put at the top of their list and I need to get round to watching them for sure!
Breaking Bad  I'm sure most people will have watched this already but if not, now is the time. I put it off for way too long but it lived up to my expectations. Prison Break  This series is tense and will make you gasp at how Michael Schofield's brain works, I'm also really glad that a Season 6 has been confirmed. Pretty Little Liars  One of my favourite series of all time, the perfect combination of high school drama and a thrilling mystery. Gossip Girl  Another classic teen drama that follows Manhatten's elite students and their various scandals through an anonymous gossip site.  Riverdale  Based on the Archie Co…

THE AUTUMN TAG

I haven't done a tag in quite a while and always find them great fun, so I was pleased when I saw that Michael had tagged me in The Autumn Tag! Essentially this tag is a set of questions all about, you guessed it - Autumn! Definitely go and check out Michael's post here as he had some great answers, thanks again for tagging me! 
What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Once it gets chillier out, the evenings get darker earlier and the leaves start changing. Also by October 1st I always feel ready for Autumn.
What is your favourite Autumn scent?
I love things like cinnamon, cedarwood, black pepper - anything spicy, woody or earthy really.
What is your favourite Autumn colour?
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours this time of the year, a lot of my outfits tend to include something burgundy around Autumn. I also love all the colours the leaves turn too, it looks so pretty!                                                Are you a fan of a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
This may come as a…

JANUARY MONTHLY FAVOURITES

Well, once again January has lasted twice as long as every other month does (seriously though, why does it always feel like that?) Anyway, I thought I'd share the things I've enjoyed during the start of 2019. 
Creativity 
After receiving a new camera for Christmas, I've enjoyed taking photos whenever I can. I definitely need to get out and about to test it properly but it's been great just experimenting! I'm really hoping that we get some good snow because I'd love to get some great photos of that, I always think it looks so pretty! However, if all else fails, you can always count on a good sunset for a perfect photo opportunity. 
Food
I feel like I have to mention all leftover snacks from Christmas firstly as it's always a good day when you remember you've got a whole chocolate orange to eat still. I also am a big fan of fudge in general and hadn't had any for ages so was pleased when my mum picked up some of the Rydale Farm Gold Collection all butt…
