Blogmas day 18 – The Christmas Tag!

Blogmas day 18 – The Christmas Tag!

The lovely Claire of The Pram Shed tagged me in the Christmas tag, and I thought it would fit in perfectly with today. The tag is so simple – Just answer the questions, tag a few friends and pass it on! It’s a lovely way to get in the festive mood!

Blogmas Day 15 – Handing in My Dissertation – All the Thoughts I’ve had

Blogmas Day 15 – Handing in My Dissertation – All …

I’ve written a few times about my disseration. When I first started trying to post about it weekly, it seemed like ages away that I’d be handing it in. But here we are; Christmas is fast approaching, and I’ve handed in a draft. I have a set of results, a lot of reading to do, and a lot of graphs to make. So as I gulp in anticipation of only having one term of uni left (I’m both terrified and SO DAMN READY!), I’m using today to reflect on everything a dissertation throws at you.

Blogmas Day 13 – Lush Snow Fairy Review

Blogmas Day 13 – Lush Snow Fairy Review

I feel like I’m very late to the bandwagon on this one. When I went in to buy myself some Lush Christmas Products, I decided that I had to get Snow Fairy. I’d never tried it, but saw it every year and had even recommended it to people looking to get others gifts. So it made no sense that I hadn’t tried it yet!

Blogmas Day 12 – Everyday Winter Makeup Look

Blogmas Day 12 – Everyday Winter Makeup Look

Never mind the fact that I’ve been a blogger for a year – I finally caved on cyber Monday, when there was a convenient 30% discount on all Urban Decay Naked Palettes, and bought Naked 2. Naked 3 is on my wishlist for Christmas. And I couldn’t buy such a coveted palette and not put together a few makeup looks for it!

Blogmas Day 11 – My Favourite Christmas Movies

But Christmas is not Christmas without some form of Christmas movie being forced on us. So I thought I’d list my favourites anyway. Because if they’ve made this list, they held my attention for long enough, and are therefore certified as entertaining!

Blogmas Day 10 – My Favourite Christmas Songs

Blogmas Day 10 – My Favourite Christmas Songs

I’ve been ridiculously festive this year – I think planning blogmas back in October had an impact on that. But I found myself searching Spotify weekly for a list of Christmas songs to indulge a guilty pleasure – Christmas songs before it’s socially acceptable.

Blogmas Day 9 – Mulled Wine Recipe

Blogmas Day 9 – Mulled Wine Recipe

You can usually head out to the shop and pick up a pre made bottle of mulled wine that can just be tipped into a cup and microwaved. But where’s the fun in that? Mulled wine is surprisingly easy to make, with items you most likely already have in your food cupboard. Not only is it simple, it’s fun to make, involves minimal mess, can be made en masse and fills your home with lovely, spicy, Christmassy scent. It’s super warming, and a great drink for both parties and a cosy night in!

Blogmas Day 8 – Christmas Gifts on a Student Budget

Blogmas Day 8 – Christmas Gifts on a Student …

As I said on Blogmas Day 1, it’s tough being a student and trying to afford Christmas. You want to be festive and give the best gifts to everyone, but, if you’re anything like me, your bank account is already in the minus and exams are at the forefront of your mind. Getting gifts for your friends and family just add another rock heap onto that mountain of stress, and although you don’t want to disappoint, you do start to wonder if your parents would honestly mind if you just gave them a hug and a little speech on why it’s not the giving at Christmas that’s important, but the being together (and cue loud singing of Christmas songs when anyone tries to tell you you’re wrong!).
