Hi, It’s December the last month of the year, I’ve been excited for Christmas since the beginning of November so unlike normal I’m going to put my tree up today (I've got the day off work Yay!). I’ve still got four books to read to complete my Goodreads challenge but I’m feeling optimistic about that. I've only just started to think about what presents to buy and I haven’t found a wrapping paper I’m happy with, so I'm feeling a little behind in the gift area of the Christmas prep. I did however open the first door on my Lindt advent calendar and as I’m not normally a massive fan of chocolate it’s made a nice change to have a better quality one but still at a very reasonable price (only cost £5 and comes with a Lindt mini reindeer and Santa).
Goals for December
- Buy something Snow Fairy scented from Lush
- Go to a Christmas Market
- Drink mulled wine
- Buy and wear a Christmas jumper
- Go to a pantomime
- Find a winter read
- Do some baking
- See family and friends
- Go for a wintery walk (in the snow would be nice)
- Continue to build my Christmas decoration collection
I went to London at the end of last month and visited the Lush Oxford street store but I didn't really buy anything from the Christmas range so to correct that I want to pick up some snowfairy scented goodies. I like giving myself some super easy goals so the seeing friends and family is more of a reminder of the point of the month ahead. I want to have lots of fun days out so I'd love to visit at least one Christmas market and going to a pantomime would be really fun. Mulled wine will be drunk at some point this month the question is do I buy a premade bottle or make my own.
With four books left for the year I have room to pick out something seasonal (any suggestions please let me know). My good old Christmas jumper has fallen apart (so sad), I need a new one so the hunt is on. I've gone a little mad on buying baubles for my tree but I might still need more, either way I'd still like to pick up some more festive pieces. I want to do some baking so I'm thinking of making something that can also become homemade presents.
Are you excited for Christmas, when are you putting up your tree?
