Home for Christmas



Sorry I have been so slack on the blog lately, a lot of things have been going on! Christmas is such a busy time of the year and I literally haven’t had a minute to sit down and do a new post for you!

BUT… I am finally home for Christmas so hopefully I’ll be able to blog a lot more!

I am so excited about Christmas, it really is my favourite time of the year! I always love going to pick out our tree, we always end up arguing over what is a prettier shape and which has better leaves, it really is funny! We always get people laughing at us because we are so into picking the ‘best’ tree!

I think our tree is really lovely this year, we have moved into a new house so we had to choose a shape that would fit in the place we wanted it to go! I think this tree is the ‘typical’¬†shape, the sort you would draw!

Every year since we were little my sister and I have chosen a new decoration, it’s always really lovely to see our collection which has built up over time! Our new ones this year are the beautiful white and silver balls!

As you can tell our colour scheme hasn’t changed much, we always stick to red, silver and glass! I think it’s such a pretty and classic look!

Do you have a tree decorating tradition? Please do let me know if you have a post up of your tree, or home decorations, I’d love to see them!

Hope you’re all feeling really Christmassy now and are as excited as I am about next week!

Snuggly Sundays

Sunday Header

So when I woke up yesterday I knew that I didn’t want to do anything but chill all day – after all Sundays are the day of rest! I was determined to not get out of my Pjs all day and apart from a quick workout in my room and a shower I did just that!

Sunday 2I love my little snowflake and Penguin fleece pyjamas, they are so cosy! I got them for Christmas last year, it’s a tradition that every year my mum buys my sister and I ‘christmas pjs’ and then I wear them all year round and they remind me of christmas!

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate how cute my little Robin socks are! They keep my feet so snug!

Sunday 1

We love to watch a film on a Sunday and we chose to watch ‘Sex Tape’ – I wasn’t expecting much, after my Auntie and Uncle told us that they’d walked out of the cinema when they went and saw it! But for a Sunday it was the perfect film! Something silly and lighthearted! Cameron Diaz never fails to make me laugh!

Sunday 8

Sunday 5

Sunday 4

Sunday 9

We had our favourite drink, a Chai Latte, while we watched the film. I mentioned it in my August Favourites post ( you can find where to buy it here) – It is honestly the nicest drink for a day like yesterday! So warming and delicious! It’s definitely our go to drink for autumn/winter.

Sunday 7

We then made some dinner, home made burgers and chips – I know, not a roast, but we’ve already had two this week, whoopsie! It’s still meat, potatoes and veg, so kind of the same right?

Sunday 10

Then we played on the Wii for a little bit, I’m good at bowling so I like to play that because I always win – AJ gets very annoyed! You can see our little Mii’s together, how cute?!

Sunday 11

And then finally, no Sunday can be complete without watching Xfactor – I have no idea why we watch it, we both hate it but we seem to watch it every week! I think we just love to hate it, plus, it does mark the countdown to Christmas!

Sunday 12

I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I got up to yesterday and I hope you all had a lovely day too!
