Christmas is Coming!

It's the run up to Christmas and all through the house, EVERYONE WAS PANICKING. This time of year is great, everything just seems that little bit more magical and people seem to be so much happier. And though it's all to easy to get caught up in the mayhem and madness, there's so much fun to be had that it all balances out in the end. 

We LOVE Christmas and so we thought of a couple of top tips and ideas for how to have the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER
(more or less)

1. Visit a Christmas market. Or attend an event where the Christmas lights are switched on. Whether that's just the people in the street or you go to a city to watch it happen, there's something special about all watching the lights sparkle. Markets are great to grab a delicious treat or maybe even find that perfect unique present for a special someone. You can find a list of Christmas markets in the UK here!

2. Make someone smile. The festive season is all about doing good for others, celebrating peace and love and remembering what is really important in life. You could donate to your local homeless shelter or serve in a soup kitchen, or why not send a letter to a poorly child? Post Pals is a charity dedicated to making seriously ill children and their siblings smile with cards and letters! All you have to do is check out their website, write a card, maybe draw a little cartoon or include a little gift and send it off to give a poorly child a special smile in time for Christmas. 

3. DECORATE DECORATE DECORATE. It's not essential to enjoying Christmas, but for me personally it's waaay up there. I just love to sit in the living room with a cup of hot chocolate, fluffy slippers and the lights twinkling on the Christmas tree. Why not split the cost with your flatmates or if you can't afford one why not create your own using whatever you can find (last year we painted a large triangular box green and stuck tinsel to it- tacky? Yes. Fun? YES). Put on some cheesy Christmas music and have fun decorating together. 

4. Spend time with loved ones. Christmas is that one time of year when (after all the panic buying and mayhem) everyone slows down, reflects on the year and just enjoys spending time with one another. If you can't travel to see someone why not watch a Christmas film together over skype with Costa takeaway coffees and mince pies?

What are your top tips for enjoying Christmas?
What are you most looking forward to?

Hope you enjoyed this post lovelies!
