Getting Ready For The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

For me the run up to Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. I love buying new winter clothes, finding new baking recipes to try and making pin board after pin board on Pinterest full of decorating ideas for the big day. I just LOVE it. I wanted to share some ideas and new purchases I've got already to hopefully help you get ready for Christmas too !!

Baking
Anyone that knows me, knows that I loooove to bake and baking all the warming christmassy treats is such a fave of mine. I've already made a big list full of recipe ideas including gingerbread cupcakes, a citrus orange & lemon loaf ~yum~ and I really want to try to make gingerbread men this year too !!

Reading
Now without sounding like a granny I love an early night and what's better than having one with a good hot chocolate a damn good book?! I picked up Tanya's Christmas a few weeks ago and as a fan of Tanya's other two books I knew this one would live up to the others (and it really does !!) It's jam packed of ideas to make your Christmas the best it possibly could be. I've already bookmarked some ideas including her recipe for gingerbread cupcakes!!

Bath
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am obsessed with Lush and especially at this time of year. Their Christmas range is always amazing and this year was no exception. From bringing back classics like Golden Wonder to introducing new faves like Man In The Moon, it will always have something for everyone. Out of the new releases,  I keep finding myself using two of them over and over. The Merry Berry Christmas Shower Gel and the Bucks Fizz Body Conditioner are both so christmassy that you'll want to snap them now before they go for another year !!

Decorations
This year I've found myself picking up so many new decorations already. Shops like John Lewis and Next have some amazing stuff this year but also shops like Tiger (where the paper garland is from above) have some lovely bits that are much cheaper ~and also make great blog photo props!!~

Clothes
I've picked up quite a few bits from Zara this year including the coat in this post and the scarf above which is perfect for layering in the frosty mornings and cold nights. I also bought these boots from Office which I have literally worn everyday since I got them. They're just SO comfy and SO worth the money. I'm just on the look out for the perfect jumper now !!
