We all know how much I love Lush, and Christmas, so put those 2 things together and we have the perfect combination. There are so many pretty Lush items this season so here are some of my favourites.
Magic Wand – this is probably my favourite, I mean look at it; it’s so pretty!
Snow Fairy – Hands dow the best smell in the world – now in bath bomb form
Princess Bomb – How adorable
Candy Cane – Definitely my favourite ‘new’ product
What are your favourite festive goodies from Lush?

I am very lucky to live in the capital city but I’ll be honest, I often take it for granted because it’s always there and I only go to specific places as and when I need too. That being said, I love London and even more so when it’s the build up to Christmas. It’s so special and pretty. Me and Mum went into the city to explore the sights and I wanted to share a the special spots that I love the most.
My mum used to work near Fortnum and Mason’s, the department store off of Regent’s street and she has always taken us in there so she’s passed her love for it onto me. I love strolling around there anyway but there is something extra special about it at Christmas.
My favourite spot to go to is Covent Garden, purely for the massive Christmas tree that they have in the middle. It’s so pretty as it sit on the cobbles. While we were there, we also popped into the new Tiffany and Co store which was decorated with the most beautiful decorations that were all in the classic Tiffany blue colour.
Where’s your favourite place to visit in London at Christmas time?

But seriously, can someone explain to me how it is December already; I’m sure it was only July last week. Anyway December is one of my favourite months because CHRISTMAS! I am such a huge Christmas fan and this year to really keep with the Christmas spirit, I have decided to take part in Blogmas. This is something I have been wanted to do for ages but never got round to it because honestly; I didn’t think I could commit to it (I mean, I’m still not convinced I am going to blog every day)
For those of you who may be reading this thinking ‘What the hell is blogmas’ well allow me to explain. Blogmas is where bloggers share a new post, ususally festive themed, everyday from 1st December to 24th December. I can’t promise I am going to succeed at this but I am going to give it a good go. Expect to see gift guide, winter make up and skin care routines and festive fun days out. Here goes!!
Are you doing Blogmas this year?

I love this time of year, every cliché aspect of it; from cosy nights in with blankets, films and hot chocolate to wandering around Winter Wonderland in the freezing cold drinking copious amounts of mulled wine.
I was talking to my friends about the little things we do every Christmas time and it got me thinking about all of the traditions that I have.
Decorating The Tree
I’m a bit sad about this one this year because it’s now 9th December and I still haven’t put mine up yet but…
Decorating the tree is one of my favourite things to do; nothing beats having it lit up in the corner of the lounge while you sit watching ‘Elf’ for the gazillionth time. Our tree is alway full of different decorations which including little hand made ones me and my sister made and 4 snowflakes that represent the 4 of us. We never really have a colour scheme but I wouldn’t change it. Usually, mum and I will put on a Christmas film and get to work. Well I say work; mum puts the tree together and adds the lights; I just stand there and wait to unleash the decorations.
You know it’s Christmas time when Winter Wonderland opens in Hyde Park. I try to go at least once every year as it really gets me in the festive mood and it’s so much fun. I love looking around the market stalls at peoples hand made crafts, eating an unreal amount of food, drinking all the mulled wine and hot chocolate and going on the rides. It never fails to disappoint and I’m so excited to go next weekend with all of my favourite people.
We have so many things that we do on Christmas Eve, which we have been doing since I was little. One of them is brand new pyjamas! Mum and Dad would always treat me and my sister to a new pair of holiday pjs and still to this day, it’s one of the things that I look forward to the most.
Usually, once I have had a Lush bath and go into said new pyjamas, it’s then time to get into bed and watch all the Christmas movies. Well, I say all the movies, it’s more like 1 before I fall asleep.
Have you got any Christmas traditions?
