With the nights getting colder and darker, it feels nice to cosy up on the sofa and watch a movie. I am definitely a massive fan of these nights, it’s nice to wind down and just relax, there’s variety of different ways you can do this! I don’t know about you but Winter just screams nights in. You don’t want to go outside because it’s already pitch black and it’s freezing cold. It’s definitely a must during these colder nights.
I thought I would share with you how I typically spend my Winter night in, what screams comfort to me!
I am pretty much always on the search for new products, I’m not sure about you but isn’t it lovely trying a new product every so often. I especially like this if they’re on some kind of offer or even a gift from someone. Recently I was gifted Shower Foam Pink Melon from Bilou, a German beauty range created by Bibi. I’ve heard so many great things about this brand as well as their products, so I was very excited to try it!

Today officially marks the first day of Winter! Even though I always thought it was the beginning of November. Winter has always been my favourite season as it includes both my birthday and Christmas. There’s definitely more that I love about Winter than any other seasons, I’m not sure about you but it always feels super special and magically. To mark the first day of Winter, I thought it would be good to share with you 50 Things I Love About Winter.
Are you interested? Well, let’s begin;
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?
Christmas, there are things to love and there are things to hate! Just like any holiday during the year. This time of year is definitely not all about unwrapping presents and eating all the food in the world, there are family dramas, presents not turning up and the mad rush at the supermarket, to name but a few things.
Today I thought I would express a few of my pet peeves when it comes to Christmas.

I don’t know about you, but over the last couple of months, Netflix has brought out some amazing series! I have become addicted to a range of series, ones that I just have to watch all in one go because they are so addicting. It’s crazy how much I’ve watched on Netflix, it’s my go-to if I want to watch something. I have it on in the background all the time, as well as in the evenings, I have to watch an episode before going bed.
Netflix are killing it recently, so I thought I would share with you my favourite series that I have watched in the last couple of months. There’s a few that I’ve now watched and thought it was worthy of a post, especially with it being Winter. It’s lovely sitting on the sofa, with a blanket, maybe even cuddling up with your loved one and watching a movie on Netflix, or even binge-watching one of their many series.
Right, shall we begin!?

I don’t know about you but I’m definitely feeling less productive during the Winter, it’s cold, dark and horrible. You have that feeling of, it’s so warm under this duvet, I want to stay here. I am definitely starting to feel it but I’ve still got so much to do! My workload has been increasing every day and I need to have productive days to actually complete the work.
Today I thought I would share a couple of ways to stay productive this Winter. Now some of these I take on board myself, others not so much.
Candles are such a must for Autumn/Winter, there’s nothing better than a candle illuminating the room. I love them to be in a position where you can see the light flickering, it brings some warmth to the room, even when it’s freezing outside. Last year for Blogmas, I shared my favourite Scentsy Wax Melts, this year I wanted to share my candle collection.
I am a massive fan of candles, they’re one of my favourite things, at the moment I have got just a small collection of candles…

I love decorating for Christmas! It makes your home feel very festive and it definitely gets you into the spirit. I finally decorated, even though I said I would last week, it was definitely worth it as I felt really good afterwards. With moving in with my Uncle in Aylesbury, this meant I was able to decorate the Christmas Tree downstairs, normally Mum always did this.
If you were following An Ocean Glimmer last year, you’ll know I decorated my room, if you want to see how I decorated last year, check out my post here. Unfortunately, I won’t be using my decorations this year as they seem to have disappeared after moving! I knew I should have taken them with me, rather than leaving them at my parents. I am a little disappointed as I loved my decorations, especially my chalkboard countdown.
I am really excited to show you how I’ve decorated for Christmas 2017! It’s really special this year as it’s mine and Yasmine’s first Christmas in Aylesbury, I’m already excited about all the Christmas lights, now just to get my home decorated. 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.
