Is it too soon to talk about Xmas? I’m uncharacteristically keen for chrimbo again this year. This is a new thing for me. For years this holiday really bummed me out but I’m working on re-focusing things. Xmas is becoming a time to spoil myself, read lots, watch sentimental movies, cuddle on the sofa, and eat treats. I largely avoid guilt, and anyone else’s awkward plans, and its all good. Like a little celebration of looking after yourself.
Watching Xmas movies – some of my fave films are unconventional see favourites here.
Playing with Make up – No xmas is complete without some new cosmetics.
Reading for pleasure – My patiently waiting ‘to read’ pile and gorgeous coffee table books from my wish list
Fairy Lights – My favourite seasonal decoration, (a tree is gravy), plus I love city centres all lit up.
Wrapping up– Breaking out the big jumpers and my new winter coat (bought in last January sales!)
Glitter & sparkle– acceptable on cards, decorations, make-up, and clothing!
Snow –Beautiful and calming. Plus I can never resist taking pictures.
Gifts/Surprises – Yes, it’s childish but I still get excited about the presents!
Drinking Whiskey – My love & I dig whisky, Scotch, Irish you name it, and Yule tide is always a good excuse to try a new one.
Seeing a show– with my Mom , even though I don’t like musicals there’s something super festive about seeing a live performance at xmas .
I also love hibernating in my bear cave, but that doesn’t seem quite as jolly as the other things on the list! I encourage you to be a big kid this Xmas and take pleasure in the small things. What are you looking forwards to this holiday season?
