Thursday, 3 December 2020


Although the title of this post is a bit negative and we likely all feel a bit despondent abour what 2020 turned out to be, this is actually going to be a positive post. I promise. It's a pretty grey day outside, a constant drizzle of rain. I have spent most of the morning in my bed with a hot water bottle, the only truly productive thing I have done so far is wash my hair. In an effort to feel better about myself and the day ahead I thought I would write about the things that I have to look forward to this month. I would love to know what things you are looking forward to to finish this year off as it might give me some ideas too!

Books I love reading, it is my favourite thing to do. It always has been and I am particularly excited because there are so many books on my TBR list that come out this month. I cannot wait to dive in and devour them all. I just hope I can be patient and save them for when I have some time off instead of greedily and impatiently burning through all of them the second they are released. 

Shows I have been in quite the nostalgic mood lately, I have been trying to watch Simpsons when it comes on All 4 Live at 18:00, it's something I used to do all through my childhood and well into my adult years. I love The Simpsons, every episode always makes me laugh and leaves me feeling good. I have even thought about converting my Twitter into an out of context simpsons quotes page. Similarly, I have been revisiting The West Wing, a show I watched all the way through at least five times with my sister and it's still just as good on this sixth rewatch. I am already approaching Season 4. My brother and I will be rewatching Chuck together over the Christmas break, another favourite of ours. I also really want to try out The Sopranos, I have heard it is really good and a lot of people say it stills holds up as a good show even now. Hopefully I won't be disappointed. What shows have you been enjoying/watching?

Movies For Halloween, one of my best friends and I have been doing a "Dan and Blair" (gossip girl reference xoxo) where we watch horror movies together in our separate homes over the phone together. We are hoping to continue this with Christmas so we can both feel festive together and have an excuse to drink mulled wine and Bailey's hot chocolate in the spirit of festivity. 

Candles Who doesn't love a candle? Christmas scents are not my favourite personally, but I found a delicious cinammon candle that is red (so festive) that I love and intend to buy multiples of. A burning candle really adds something to a space and if I could I would light a candle constantly. Can.dles are a necessity in winter in my humble opinion

Present Buying Half of my Christmas shopping list is already done and I am so excited to see if my loved ones like and enjoy their gifts. I really hope they do. This year I have a gorgeous little neice to buy for so I can't wait to spoil her and I am still trying to think of some good ideas for my teenage brother. I get really excited when buying presents and tend to get a little too spend happy but I am hoping that my gifts will make everyone's Christmas extra special. 

Virtual Christmas Dinner Every year my friends and I have a friend Christmas dinner which is always so much fun and something that really gets me in the Christmas spirit. Sadly this year an in-person Christmas dinner is off the table but we will be doing a virtual dinner. I think it will still be a lot of fun and when we get a date sorted, I'll definitely try to make it as awesome as possible. I have no idea what I am going to eat. 

Decorating Since August I have been changing things around in my room, a horribly expensive mirror I purchased in September finally arrived so I am hoping to spend the last month of 2020 adding the final touched to my room. I need to change my bedsheets and curtains, possibly my rug and find some cute decorative pieces for my desk including a makeup mirror. This little project has been really good for me and I hope it looks as awesome as I want it to when I am done with it. 

Other things I love are the Christmas decorations, the lights on the tree are so fun especially as it gets dark so early now. Black Forest Hot Chocolate and other special seasonal drinks available at Costa and Starbucks are something I enjoy immensely. I am sure I will add more to this list as we meander through December but I would love to know what you are looking forward to over the next month or even longer? Thank you so much for reading, hope you are having a great start to December. Take care.

What are you looking forward to this month

Reading books, watching shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime are a few things I do regularly.
