NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Christmas Checklist

Every year I make a Christmas checklist in the run up to the big day that guarantees to leave me full of festive cheer. Starting December the first I make sure every little detail is ticked off over the course of 24 days. Seeing as it's my Christmas party tonight and i'll be ticking off number nine, I thought I'd run through my festive check list with you... (FYI the ones in bold have been ticked off!)
  • Crack open the hot chocolate - Wittard Winter Warmer Christmas Pudding HC is my favourite!
  • Open a Christmas present early 
  • Pick up your Primark christmas jumper 
  • Watch Elf and subject your other half to the soundtrack on repeat after it finishes
  • Put up your Christmas tree and decorations
  • Purchase a Christmas scented candle - The Laura Mercier Signature Scented Candle is a dream! 
  • Get baking - hello Ginger Bread Men
  • Polish off a box of After Eights
  • Go to a Christmas party
  • Go ice skating
  • Stock up on Christmas food (or just tonnes of pigs in blankets)
  • See a really terrible movie on Christmas eve
  • Purchase all presents before the 24th December - a girl can dream, right? 
And my favourite - filming festive videos. Keep an eye out for the first instalment this weekend. But most importantly, I need to know - have I missed anything? Let me know what fills you with festive cheer in the comments!

  3. Love these! I'm obsessed with christmas candles! My elf is muppets christmas carol, I have to watch it multiple times, sing through the whole thing and then sing all the songs at random throughout December. I feel sorry for everyone that knows me...x
