LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE! BLOGMAS DAY 24

If you're suddenly panicking that you have forgotten to buy someones Christmas presents, don't worry there are plenty of things you can do!

I went on the Tesco website because I know they are open on Christmas Eve till quite late so when you are in those last minute panic moments you know you've got Tesco's to rely on! Also most people live near a Tesco's so its easy to get to!

The things I have found which will make good last minute presents are smelly sets, the old classics which everybody gets tons of every year! But if you are in real crisis you will just buy anything!
I also found a really cool Starbucks set for any of those coffee lovers out there!

These presents are great for men and women, young and old!

Have a Merry Christmas!

WINTER WONDERLAND! BLOGMAS DAY 23



Merry Christmas eve eve!

The other day me and my family went to a Winter Wonderland near where we live. 
There was some rides, lots of food stands, amazing hot chocolates, and a ice rink which wasn't open!
Despite the weather being pretty bad we still had a nice evening on the rides and eating lots of tasty food!

The rides we went on were the giant merry go round, which went pretty fast actually!
A hall of mirrors which were hilarious!
And hock a duck, which I was highly disappointing with as I wanted to win a giant Olaf teddy!

It did make me feel quite Chrsitmassy but it was a shame the ice rink wasn't open otherwise that would of made it even better!

Although this was an okay Winter Wonderland, it no way compares to the Winter Wonderland in London! However the prices were slightly cheaper here!

Only 2 days left of Blogmas!
Merry Christmas!

CHRISTMAS TAG! BLOGMAS DAY 22


As Christmas is only three days away, I thought I would do the Christmas tag! 
I found this tag from http://enthusiastblog.com/2012/12/17/the-christmas-tag/, go and check it out if you want to do it to!

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?
I did a whole different blog post on my favorite Christmas films so go and check it out if you want this answer in more depth!
The film I'm loving at the moment which I am actually watching right now is Elf! It so funny I love it!

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I can never remember it actually snowing on Christmas day, I don't think it has. However it has snowed before and after Christmas which is cool!

3. Where do you usually spend your holidays?
It varies each year. Each year we switch between both sides of the family who we are going to spend Christmas day with. However last year we spent it at home and family came to see us!

4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
This year I am really loving Merry Christmas Everyone!

5. Do you open any Christmas presents on Christmas eve?
Not usually! Some years we do but the majority of the years we save them for Christmas day!

6. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Here goes: Rudolf, Comet, Prancer, Vixon, Dixon....nope!

7. What Christmas traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Playing lots of games with my family on Christmas day! I find this so fun and we laugh so much playing these games!

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake. Hopefully next year I will be able to convince my mum to get a real Christmas tree!

9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
Probably mince pies! I wish they sold them all year round!

10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Both. I love seeing peoples reactions to what I have bought them, but I also love opening presents as well, my mum puts in a lot of effort when buying presents!

11. What is the best Christmas gift you have ever received?
I don't really get big gifts for Christmas, mainly small little ones, But I remember one year getting a wii and I loved playing on it with all of my family on Christmas day!

New York! I've always wanted to visit New York but especially at Christmas as there is snow everywhere, and the whole place looks magical!

13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I fail miserably! I can not wrap any sort of presents even if it is a really simple shape! I love wrapping presents but I'm just not very good at it!

14. Most memorable Holiday moment?
One year my family and I stayed in a cottage for Christmas with lots of out family members!
It was such a cosy and fun Christmas!
I remember my tooth falling out and the 'tooth fairy' still managed to find where I was!

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I can't really remember how I found out, but I remember as I got older I started to get a bit smarter and think how can Santa actually deliver gifts to everyone in the world in one night!

16. Do you make new years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
No and no!

17. What makes the holidays special for you?
Being with my family and eating lots of lovely food!

Merry Christmas!

CHRISTMAS OUTFIT! BLOGMAS DAY 21


On Christmas day I don't really get a fancy outfit to wear as were only at home or round a relatives lounging around so I like to wear comfy clothes!

This year I have got a stripy collard top from Primark which I am going to wear underneath my snowman Christmas jumper from George.
With this I have a plain pair of black leggings as these are really comfy, comfier than jeans!
To finish it off I have a pair of gold slip on shoes from Tescos. These make the outfit seem a little bit more fancy, they are quite new and I haven't worn them yet! Christmas makes the perfect day to wear them!

On Christmas day the most we ever do is go for a walk so this outfit is perfect as this year it hasn't been very cold, and my Christmas jumper will keep me warm!

I can't wait for Christmas, only 4 days to go! Also I really look forward to wearing this on Christmas!

FAVORITE VLOGMAS! BLOGMAS DAY 20


Only 5 days until Christmas! I can't wait!
This year so many youtubers are doing Vlogmas therefore I thought I would tell you my favorite vlogmas's!

I'm really loving Gabbys vlogmas this year! I've always loved Gabbies vlogs but now shes vlogging every day in Decemeber near enough so its a bonus!

I especially love Eves vlogs because she is in year 11 so she is going through all the stresses of school as well plus she is still vlogging at the same time. Its really cool to see what shes up to at school and everything!

I watch Zoes vlogmas every year and they are always really fun to watch! She does so much Christmassy things, there is never a vlog which I am not entertained!

I've only recently got into Louise's vlogmas now were nearly at the end of it! The vlogs I have watched are really good and entertaining! Louise or Darcy never fail to make me laugh!

Laura is a smaller Youtuber. She usually posts on a Thursday and I loved watching them, and now shes doing vlogmas means I get to watch lots of her vlogs!

What is your favorite vlogmas?
