2015 - Another year gone by

I honestly cannot believe I'm sat here thinking about another year gone by, I know most people say the same thing but honestly this year has felt like it's flown by for me, the first and not so great half seems like a life time ago in a way, its certainly been an eventful one and not always in a good way , I'd go as far to say it's probably been the hardest year of my life but I'm not here to bring negativity to my blog or myself so I'm concentrating on all the wonderful time I had, not the dark ones I wish could magically be erased.


My Christmas eve

Christmas eve for me has always consisted of snuggling up on the sofa with a yummy take away and christmas movies, of course Home alone 2: Lost in New York is always one of those and today will be no different, I've pulled out a few Christmas films from my collection and will save my ultimate favourite and tradition till last.


Disney secret santa

I took part in something very exciting this year, a secret santa, not just any secret santa though, the lovely Lottie at Lottie does Disney organised a Disney secret santa. This was the first secret santa I've ever actually taken part in, shocking I know considering my age, it's like i've been hiding under a rock away from the secret santa parties all this time.


Top 5 christmas/winter lipsticks

Lets be honest here, there was no way I wasn't going to do a beauty related Christmas post or 2 and as I've become some kind of lipstick hoarder, it only felt right to have the first one about my Christmas lipsticks. I hold my hands up, I used to stick to very subtle lipstick shades, you know the barely noticeable ones and even that was now and then when I fancied a change from my beloved glossy lips, yes I was a lipgloss addict, the shinier the better. But now my love of lipstick has taken over and I find myself barely even reaching for the lipgloss collection now and even more braver, I'm in love
with more bolder lip shades, I don't even know who this brave bold Disney princess is anymore ;)


Disney Travels: 9 hours in Disneyland Paris at Christmas

Having an annual passport for Disneyland Paris means that day trips are a possibility and even seem quite a good deal, especially when I come across Eurostar tickets for £64. So a couple of months ago when they had a sale I decided to book so I could have a festive day amongst my Disney pals, Mickey & Co.


Christmas wardrobe wishlist

I have to admit, I've not always been into dressing for Christmas, and by that I mean grabbing the festive jumpers, the cosy Christmas PJ bottoms etc in fact you'd always find me in my regular winter clothes even on Christmas day but for about the past 3 years I pulled myself out of that habit and decided to get even more festive. 


Christmas stockings

Since my sister and I can remember my mum has done little Christmas goodie bags for us, she'd sneak in our rooms when we were fast asleep and leave the bags of goodness at the end of ours beds, the idea was they'd keep us occupied for a while meaning she wouldn't get woken up at some crazy hour, just some early daft one haha. Yes, just like a lot of kids I expect Christmas day is the one morning we'd both be awake at the crack of dawn, before the sun even had a chance to even start to rise and we got so excited by those little bags that Santa had left for us, he does really exist you know.

Christmas on pinterest

When it comes to Pinterest it doesn't matter what time of year it is, I'm on there for hours pining my favourite foods, makeup looks, home inspiration, hair styles and everything else in between but then there comes Pinterest at Christmas and things get worse than ever, I can't stop with the beautiful scenery pictures, the gorgeous decorated homes (that are bigger than I can ever dream of living in), all the tasty christmas inspired baking recipes and so on, I'm there pining it all.


My top 8 christmas films

It's December and that of course only symbolises one thing, its Christmas and if you're not a fan then I suggest you may wish to look away from my blog for the next month. Last Christmas was a terrible, miserable one for me, so bad in fact I didn't even put my tree up, but this year I'm determined to not go down that route again and I'm going to make sure I get in the spirit and enjoy it, so much so that I put my tree up on December 1st which in the 10 christmases I have not lived at home with my mum its by far the earliest this has happened.


Benefits of a Disneyland Paris annual passport

When planning my last trip I did some research for ticket prices and thought just out of curiosity I'd check the annual passport, and was surprised to find one pass cheaper than the 3 day ticket and one the same price and with that of course it seemed stupid to buy a ticket just for this one trip when I could pay the same price or even cheaper and get a ticket for the whole year, I'd have been crazy not to bother wouldn't I?
