Christmas is a magical time. I love the scents that the festive season brings with it, there’s Winter Spice, Gingerbread, Cinnamon and more. I love when stores match their collections to the festive season, it makes this time of year even more special. One place that’s killing it this year, I’m sure you can tell by the title, is The Body Shop. I am a bigger lover of The Body Shop, especially their seasonal scents.
They killed it with their Autumnal range, they released Vanilla Pumpkin which was amazing! One of the best scents they’ve released. It’s so good I’ve even reviewed Vanilla Pumpkin twice! For as long as I can remember, The Body Shop has released three different Christmas scents. Last year, they released Berry Bon Bon, Peppermint Candy Cane and Vanilla Marshmallow, some amazing scents.
I love a good old fashioned cup of tea, the standard is alright but the growing trend of herbal and fruit tea is truly amazing. I’m always keen to try new flavours and when you add fruit to the mix, it really livens up the mood. Tea can also be healthy with added vitamins to help you stay on your A game. I recently fell in love with T plus, the only tea to deliver you vitamins in one super little teabag.
Recently Shibui Tea gifted me a few flavours from their pyramid bag range to try and I’m pleased to say it’s time for me to share my thoughts and feelings. But first, who are Shibui Tea?
There’s nothing better than snuggling into a blanket with a candle flickering in the Winter, with Christmas just around the corner there are some great festive candles to be lit. A candle can bring warmth to any room, what I love most is when the scent fills the room, especially if it’s something such as Cinnamon Stick and Spiced Orange. I much prefer wax melts, they’re becoming really popular.
You don’t have to worry about a naked flame and it will still fill the room with a lovely scent, sometimes the main reason for burning a candle. There are some great scents out there for wax melts, I swear it opens the door for inventions and there’s a lot more variety than candles. I recently reviewed Geeky Melts, the brainchild of Laura, an all-around geek and zombie enthusiast.

I hope you’re having a lovely December, it’s not long now until Christmas. I cannot believe where December has gone! I’m really excited and can’t wait to visit Plymouth, it’s always weird going back home, in a good way though. Today I am sharing The Winter Tag, let’s get into the festive mood.
I always find them a good way to get to know a blogger and also I love thinking about the questions. Sometimes they can really make you think, in the past, I’ve really struggled to answer and find a good answer. Also, they’re really good for spreading the love in the blogosphere by tagging fellow bloggers.
If you haven’t already noticed, I love tags, especially those that I’ve been tagged in by another blogger. I’ve really been struggling to plan and write content for Blogmas 2017, I hope you are all enjoying my posts and I can not believe there are only four more days left. Today’s post wasn’t actually planned until a couple of days ago after I was tagged by the lovely Hannah from What Hannah Wrote in the Christmas “Would You Rather?” Tag.
Check out her post here to see how she answered her questions. Shall we get started?
One thing that I love doing around this time of year, is decorating a Gingerbread House! When I found out Tuesday 12 December was Gingerbread House Day, I just had to decorate a Gingerbread House. I love doing this every year, every year I try and decorate some form of House, last year I decorated a Rocky Road House. Which for someone who doesn’t like Gingerbread was perfect.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a Rocky Road House, so I had to go with the traditional Gingerbread House. Oh well, it will keep Yasmine happy! Making and decorating a Gingerbread House is seen as a Christmas tradition, it’s a great way of getting the kids together and having fun. It’s interesting watching them decorate a house, using their imagination.
