Reasons To Love December


  • CHRISTMAS! Christmas decorations, Christmas food, Christmas jumpers, etc.
  • Crisp Winter mornings and evenings.
  • Glitter and sequins everywhere.
  • Snow days.
  • Staying in to watch movies instead of going out.
  • Hot drinks and gingerbread everything. The Winter Berry Latte from Caffé Nero is incredible!
  • Cosy pyjamas, socks and slippers. These ASOS penguin slippers are adorable!
  • The red lipstick and red nail polish combination.
  • The search for the perfect wrapping paper and the satisfaction of having all the presents ready to give out to people.
  • Candles, especially cinnamon spiced ones.
  • Bobble hats, scarves and gloves.
  • More time to read. 
  • Long baths, preferably using something from the Lush Christmas range. I particularly like the Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb.
  • Turning an electric blanket on 5 minutes before you go to bed so that it's already warm.
  • Having more chances to bake, I'd love to have a go at making a gingerbread house.
  • A toasty, open fire.
  • Christmas markets.
  • Glittery nail polish. I currently have my eye on Essie - Tassel Shaker.
  • Gift sets and advent calendars.
  • Soup and freshly baked bread all the time.
  • Fairy lights and new bedding.
  • Cuddling.
  • More time spent with family and friends.
