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.

With nights getting colder and darker, I love sitting down with a hot chocolate and a movie cuddled up with the partner. I swear I drink more hot chocolate during the colder months, it’s just the perfect drink! I hardly drink hot chocolate throughout the year until winter comes around, it’s just a thing for me.
It’s definitely the perfect time on this cold, winters night to sit down with a hot chocolate and watch your favourite Christmas movie. I know that’s what I’m doing! I thought I would share with you some of my hot chocolate favourites. There’s so many out there to chose from, but there’s a few I keep going back to each time.

For the past couple of months, I have been apart of one of the most amazing opportunities. Theatre Royal Plymouth created a scheme for bloggers in Plymouth, with no previous experience in the theatre industry I jumped at this opportunity and then I received the amazing news that I gained a place on the scheme. With there being such a big interest in the scheme, the Theatre wanted to make it a quarterly opportunity, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Now the Spring term is over, it is time to say goodbye to the Theatre, as ten new bloggers are getting their backstage experience. Before saying farewell, I would like to chat about the scheme, first up! What did I enjoy the most? It would have to be seeing parts of performances that you wouldn’t normally, as well as meeting cast members. This was the whole aim of the scheme, we were never there to review the performance, we would speak about our backstage experience.
Can you believe it! January has been and gone, it’s now February! For the New Year, I thought I would introduce a new series, at the end of each month I am going to sum up what I’ve been loving. This may include some beauty items along with places and things I’ve been enjoying over the month.
Before you can move forward with the New Year, I think it’s always good to look back on the previous year to see your achievements. Looking at it, 2016 has been quite a successful year for me! A lot has happened and I am really proud of myself. I thought I would share with you today my highlights of 2016.
I hope you’ve all had an amazing Christmas and had a great time with your nearest and dearest!
Before we head towards the New Year, I wanted to do a Christmas Presents Haul, now I will admit that this isn’t everything! Because I haven’t managed to see everyone yet to receive their presents. Along with receiving a lot of money that has gone towards my holiday next year.
