Feels like Christmas !

Sunday, 7 December 2014

Hello everyone! 

I planned to do a BLOGMAS 2014 edition for my blog, but on the 1st of December, I caught the flu! Not a great start to the month, as I've been bedridden the last 5 days. Lots of sneezing and coughing involved, my only salvation was watching anime with a cup of Lemsip in my hand and my Eucalyptus Yankee Candle on flame beside me. 

First post up for this month will be a post on; How to get into the Christmas spirit! 

Put some festive tunes on! 


Christmas songs are easily the fastest way to get into the holiday spirit, I could listen to a Christmas song in May and feel all giddy thinking about the upcoming Christmas that's literally months away!
Just crank up the stereo (or youtube, whatever works) and you're good to go! 
Minae recommends: Mindy Gledhill - Little Soldier (that's her favorite christmas song!)



Light up your room! 

Filling your room up with lights will make you happy, trust me on this one. The bright lights will make you feel like you're walking through Harrods and and will give you a warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach. You can use Christmas lights all year round so you can save the trouble of taking them down at the end of December. 


Make you room smell like Christmas 



The one thing I love most about Christmas is when my mum sets up all the incense sticks and candles and they all smell so great! I usually stock up on these candles during November before they all sell out but I forgot this year so I'll have to fight for them during the month ^^; 
These are my favorite ones but there are some really cool cheaper options in any store really.  


Wear Christmas Themed clothing! 

Why decorate everything but yourself? Go down to your local mall and pick up a few  Christmas outfits for you and your family! If you don't want to show your festivity to everyone opt for a pair of santa socks, but if you want to go all out, rock a big woolly snowman jumper. Accessories with reindeer antlers and you're good to go! It doesn't matter whether its from Debanhams or Primark, they all look cute and cliche and you definitely wont regret it! 


That's it for today! I'm sorry it was so late (it's techniqually the 7th today, but It's okay! As long as we're all in the christmas spirit its fine!). I'll be back tomorrow with another post so look out for that one ^_^ 

Until now it's been,
