A Christmas Post Round Up

Today, I'm going to share a quick round up of some of my old Christmas posts. 

I have so many new posts I want to blog this Christmas, but I haven't managed to take all the photos I need for them yet because we've had no decent daylight in weeks. Seriously, it's been grey and dreary all month! What happened to the Winter sunshine?? I wish the lack of sunlight was the only reason for the lack of photos, but I'll admit I'm also struggling to function at the moment because I'm in so much pain. I won't go in to it now, but things haven't been this bad in a while, and it's left me feeling so drained of life which in turn is making it harder to blog. I'll try to write an update about it all soon.

For now, I'm just going to make up for the lack of new posts with a bunch of old ones. I've compiled a list of some of the Christmas themed posts I've blogged over the last few Christmases, which I hope you'll enjoy and find helpful. I must apologise for the quality of some of them first- I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote them, but it's fair to say I've improved my content and blogging style since those early days! Well, at least I like to think so!

Last weekend I reviewed an adult Christmas colouring book for you guys. It's a great stress-reliever.

Earlier in the month I shared a big Christmas home, fashion, and beauty haul, packed full of beautiful festive things.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a list of 101 Things To Do This Christmas to give you a little inspirations.

My first impressions of this year's L'Occitane advent calendar. I'll be blogging about what I found / will find behind each window really soon. You can see some of the treats I've found behind the windows over on my Instagram now. (There are more to come; I'm a little behind on the updates).

Last Christmas I gave you a peek at two of my Christmas novelty bags.

I reviewed several Lush Christmas products this time last year. All but one are available again this Christmas, so you might find the post helpful if you're shopping for Lush goodies this December.

A peek at last year's Christmas Eve box, which is a box full of lovely goodies to enjoy on Christmas Eve night. I'll be blogging this year's box sometime in the next week!

50 of my Christmas shopping tips to make your Christmas shopping that little bit easier.

Last Winter I reviewed some lovely Christmas decorations from The Christmas Boutique. The  good news is, the majority of the decorations are still available to buy!

A big list of all of the things it just wouldn't be Christmas without.

A light-hearted festive-themed Q&A tag post.

Take a peek at how I decorated my bedroom for Christmas last year. You can find out what it looks like this year in a few days.

A tour of my living room dressed up for Christmas from last December. I'll be bringing you this year's Christmas home tour very soon.

A post about how I spent my Christmas in 2014.

How I spent Christmas in 2013.

A couple of Christmases ago, I shared a tutorial for making your own Christmas crackers (using a Hobbycraft kit), plus heaps of ideas for what you could put in them. (Excuse the photos!)

Some ideas for putting together a beauty hamper for your favourite ladies.

Back in 2012, I wrote a post about how I put beauty boxes together for my family and friends. Please excuse the crap photos and my embarrassing use of fonts; I have no idea what the hell I was thinking back then, but it wasn't good!

And, finally, if you're looking for some new Christmas movies to watch this year, check out this old post featuring some of my favourites of all time.

Are you looking forward to Christmas? Have you got much left to do?



  1. I have the bauble bag too! Got it in the sale and will be used at Christmas. The frog decorations are completely gorgeous. Hope all is well with youxx

  2. I'm so sorry to hear hear you've been unwell - especially as I know how much you love Christmas. Take care of yourself xo
