Getting Into The Festive Spirit

With December just around the corner and more importantly Christmas, I have started to prep for the big day by wrapping up presents and writing out my Christmas cards. Today, I thought I would tell you all the ways that I'm getting festive over the next 4 weeks. From hot chocolates to hot water bottles, this post has it covered. 

Now, if you don't know already, wrapping Christmas presents is one of my favourite things to do over the festive period. I usually start planning my theme pretty early on, but I had a tough time deciding what to opt for. In the end, I scoured Pinterest for inspiration and finally settled for brown a and red theme. I like make each present individual, so I've collected pine cones, copper bells and cinnamon sticks to add a creative touch and interesting accents to the presents. 

The temperature has suddenly dropped recently meaning that I have had to crack out my multiple blankets and have my hot water bottle topped up 24/7. After being ill this week I have been making a concious effort to wrap up warm. This Pimkie coat has been a staple in my wardrobe as I can wear it with a variety of outfits and it allows me to layer up using several items of clothing. There are a couple of jumpers that I have been lusting after, this ASOS Chunky Knit and blouson jumper from Topshop would be perfect as Winter additions and they would compliment the rest of my wardrobe. 

Bublé baths aren't something that I usually start during November, but I've been popping in the Lush Cinders bath bomb to get me into the festive spirit. After the bath I have been slathering on the Laura Mericer Creme Brulee Souffle Body Creme to keep my skin feeling hydrated and supple, something I tend neglect to during the Winter months.  

When it comes to food in the festive season, I often have to prise myself away from the Quality Street and instead enjoy the array of seasonal vegetables on offer. Although I try and stay relatively healthy throughout December, I can't help but treat myself to some hot chocolate here and there. The Costa Caramel Fudge and the more budget offering of the Options Outrageous Orange Hot Chocolate are two that I cannot get enough of and I treat myself regularly occasionally. 

Over the next month I have a lot planned. My blog to-do list is a mile long and I have been loving sorting out December's festive posts. With a visit to a Christmas market and a zoo on the cards, I am hoping to spend most of my nights in watching Elf and Home Alone under the duvet with the candles lit.

What plans have you got for December?
