Christmas is Coming.

So I thought as Advent starts in a couple of days I'd do a little Christmas post! It'll be a mixture of what I've been doing in preparation for Christmas, from the lights in London to what's on my Christmas list, to what I love most about the holiday season! 

My list of what I love about Christmas!

- Spending lots of time with my wonderful family
- Buying lots of presents for everyone
- Watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and White Christmas
- Listening to the Andy Williams Christmas Album
- The lights, shopping, and holiday cheer
- Going around Harrods and Fortnum and Mason looking at the gorgeous decorations
- Chocolate. Duh.
- Mince Pies
- Snow *fingers crossed*
- My Grandma's home-made Christmas Pudding
- Dylan in his Christmas hat
- Christmas tree choosing and decorating
- Tins of Roses chocolates around the house
- Midnight mass
- Dylan getting really scared by one of our Santa Christmas decorations and hiding from it every year

A few things on my Christmas list!

The Asus S200 Touchscreen Ultrabook.
I hate laptops, I hate Mac's, and I hate tablets. I'm a Windows netbook and desktop, two-computer-kinda-girl, and have fallen in love with this nifty lil ultrabook with windows 8 and a touchscreen as well as the keyboard. My desktop is still working all good, but my current netbook is slowly but surely dying, so this gorgeous lil thang would make me a very happy girl!

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay perfume.
I am completely and utterly in love with this perfume, it's so gorgeous and reminds me of summer days picking blackberries, and autumn days eating blackberry crumble all snuggled up in front of the fire. It's ideal for every season and is just ah-mazing! I think I'm going to give this to myself for Christmas :)

As you know I love my books, and I'm a huge Cecil Beaton fan! I'm also a lover of Vogue (what girl isn't!?) with a monthly subscription, and basically after flicking through this book in Waterstones, I want it so badly! It's so beautiful with the photographs and various articles written by Beaton, and I would be so grateful to get this for Christmas.

Glee Season 3 Dvd.
Yep. I <3 Glee.

Dylan The Dog wants this to add to his collection...

He says thanks in advance, he reckons it will go wonderfully with his Christmas hat!

I really do love Christmas (who doesn't!?), and on Sunday I spent the day in London with the family just doing a bit of Christmas shopping, and seeing all of the Christmas lights and pretty decorations. Here are some of my favourites!

Cartier on Old Bond Street

Covent Garden

Gorgeous Fortnum and Mason Christmas Bazaar!

Fortnum and Mason Christmas Bazaar

The absolutely beautiful lights and Christmas tree in the Covent Garden piazza. The huge crowd is due to a guy proposing to his girlfriend by the tree! She said YES!

For Christmas my uncle, aunt, cousins and grandma are coming down to stay, and I'm really excited! I haven't seen my cousins for about four years as they live really far away, so I can't wait to see them all!

What are your plans for Christmas? Anything exciting on your Christmas list?

  2. I sort of can't wait for my mum's mince pies!

    1. Aw, yeh my Dad's are always awesome! He does them like tarts rather than full pies so there's less pastry and more mince - perfect!
