What I Got For Christmas 2014


Another Christmas has passed and as I write this on NYE we are planning what the next year has in store for us, be it to do exactly the same as this year or to make some changes. Every new year brings food for thought, I personally think 2015 will be a big change for me as I have some big plans coming up.

I'm quite a nosey person and therefore love these types of posts/videos. I love to see what people have got for Christmas, and if I have any money leftover I often make a few sneaky purchases based on them! This isn't a braggy post, just one I personally like to read and thought I would do my own. I was pretty spoilt this year, and it's mainly because this is potentially my last Christmas in my family home as (all fingers crossed) we are hoping to buy our own house sometime in the New Year.

I decided to split it up into categories so you can skip the ones you aren't that interested in! So lets begin.

Last but not least, Christmas wouldn't be complete without getting Food & Drink :

Maltesers
Quarter of alcohol.
 
 
There we have it a peak into what I got this Christmas, it goes without saying that I am incredibly grateful for everything I received this year, all of my gifts are amazing and I'm very lucky to have friends and family who know me so well! The best part of my Christmas this year though was getting to share it with all the people I love, whilst presents are nice, there's nothing better than having a game of monopoly whilst listening to some festive music with my family.
 
 
I hope you all had a Fantastic Christmas

Lifestyle | Christmas With Me


Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas, I had taken a little bloggers break this year just to take time to spend the festive week with my nearest and dearest. I'm back now with a little peak into how I spent Christmas this year.

It was a small affair but none the less lovely. We woke early Christmas morning and raced downstairs to open our gifts (What I got for Christmas post coming soon!), once we had opened all of ours it was the animals turn to open there's! Tilly (our dog) has never been so excited, she was thrilled with her toys and spoilt for choice as to what to play with first!


Once the excitement of opening our gifts had subsided a little we settled down for breakfast whilst organising the table and starting the dinner preparations. I love the smell of Christmas dinner cooking, the pans bubbling away and festive music playing in the background. It's my favourite part of the day.

My Dad made his scrumptious home made Yorkshire puddings and put on lashings of gravy, as you can see! I had the vegetarian version of our Christmas dinner (I didn't get a photo of mine!) and it was delicious! After we had stuffed ourselves silly we had a little relax, I read my new book and my Dad had Top of the Pops on the T.V.

Tilly was that exhausted from all of the excitement that she buried herself in her blankets before having a nap.


Some hours later we rallied ourselves round and set off for a post-dinner walk. The sunset was beautiful and I just had to stop and admire it. We ambled on for a while pottering over the fields trying to work off the huge amount we had just eaten before making our way back home.

Once we were back we cracked open the nibbles and sat down for an intense game of monopoly! I was terrible at it and ended up bankrupt not too far in to the game..oops!

There we have a peak into my cosy quiet Christmas.

 
Hope you all had a good Christmas!

Lifestyle | We Celebrated 6 Years


Friday 5th of December was a very special day for us, it marked the fact that me and my other half had been a couple for 6 years! We met back in school, went to prom together and here we are now.

I don't want to over personalise this post, but we have had some amazing memories these past years and what better way to celebrate than go for a meal and chat about them all?!


pizza express

We went for a personal favourite of ours, Pizza Express, and devoured 3 courses each! and a few cheeky drinks. We munched our food and whiled away the evening chatting about the past and our future escapades.








We both had starters, Pizza for main and a dessert! The desserts were scrumptious, both of us went for a chocolate option. I had gooey chocolate brownies and he opted for a sweet chocolate log.

After we had eaten our fill, and boy had we! We pottered off home to settle down in front of the T.V. A perfect evening.
