YAY!!!!! It’s that time of year again and I’m even more excited about Christmas this year then any year before, coz we have our own place and are having a Jarek/Sarah Christmas so I’m so excited and can’t wait to decorate and make my nest full of everything Christmas!

I LOVE everything about Christmas, the decorations, the lights, the food, the smells, ALL of it!!!

Last year was the first time I’d done a Christmas post and it’s official, I’ll be doing this style of post every year! Just like last year, its gonna be a long one, so get a mulled wine and ur cozy socks, Christmas ones of course! I’ll be taking you through everything I think will get you into the Christmas Spirit from the 1st of December all the way up to the 25th.

1. Pajamas 

I love a good pair of festive pyjamas! They are 1st on my hit list coz if they don’t get you in the mood for Christmas, NOTHING will. I’ve built up quite a collection over the year, but I look forward to getting them every year! I can be quite fussy so I’ve picked what I would like.

2. Slippers & Slipper Socks

Obviously these are going to be in the same category! I actually think this is one of my favourite things to get! There is nothing better than super cozy slipper or slipper socks! If you love cozy nights in you NEED to get involved in this one! I’m a huge fan or really big knitted socks and boot type slippers, but there are a few in here that I just couldn’t resist! I’d love to know your favourite, even if they aren’t featured.

I went a bit crazy this year with home stuff because this year will be our first Christmas living in our own space since we moved to Jersey, so yea went a little mental. I pretty much got everything from this category in my post last year and loved everything so year I’ve added to the collection this year!

4. Candles

Candles, do I need to say more. It seems we are all about that HYGGE life so of course candles sales will be at an all time high, ha ha. I’m obsessed with candles and this time of year is no different! Like with everything else this year I went MAD with the candles so I’m excited to share.

Get into the Christmas Spirit

Let me start off by saying I LOVE Christmas! Its one of my favourite times of year. I enjoy everything about it, the decorations, the lights, the food, the smells, ALL of it!!!

This is my first ever post of this kind so it’s gona be a long one, but it’ll be worth it, so get a mulled wine and ur cozy (Christmas) socks.

Unfortunaitly not everyone shares my passion. After Halloween I was full on ready to jump in it,  but I’ve felt like I have to hold back. Only on the outside though. 

This weeks blog post is all about the little festive thing to get you in the Christmas spirit. Basicly it the small things you can hide so you know your all about Christmas, but no one else needs to know.

I’ve done them in a couple of catagories. I’ve chosen things I love and that make me happy. Hopefully you’ll like em!

1. Pajamas 

I love pjs all year round, but when it comes to that time of year I love a good pair of festive pyjamas. I used to never get them, in the days when Christmas was just another meaningless holiday.

A couple of years ago I came to the realisation that the holidays are what you make of it, so I got right into it and got everything there was to get in a festive theme and it just made me so happy inside.

Anyway I’ve gone off topic. My Christmas PJs come out the first week in November (if I’m organised). I tend to have them hidden in a box under the bed so they all usually need a wash so I take to this oppertunity to wash then with some essential oils in Christmas scents. It just takes it to another level.

Slipper socks are in this category too.
