Lifestyle: Feeling Festive!


Happy December! I can’t believe it is finally December, my all-time favourite month. I just love this time of the year, I adore it.

I love Christmas lights, and cold dark evenings with candles lit, open fires, decorations and the delicious food that comes with this time of year ( yes I have eaten hundreds of chocolate oranges already hahaha)

I’ve pre-scheduled a few posts for until the 4th of December as I am away in London with my boyfriend for a festive 4-day weekend and Christmas shopping! We have a tradition now to go away somewhere the first weekend of December, last year we went to Edinburgh which we loved, so we are mixing it up and visiting London this year.


Now there are only 24 days to go until Christmas and I plan to make the most of every single one! When I was younger I used to wish away December as I was so excited for Christmas day, but now I think the build up is the best part! The few weeks before are where the excitement sets in and everyone starts to feel festive.


The candle in my photos today is my absolute favourite Christmas candle. It comes from a brand called DW Home, but I can’t find another version of this candle anywhere, I have completely searched the internet and I can’t find one! *sobs*

But if you ever spot the Festive Holly scent in a TKMaxx (where I found mine), make sure you grab one! I am burning it slowly each year, it just has the perfect scent for the festive season. I just take the lid off and take in the spicy scent if I want to feel that buzz of excitement for Christmas.

Are you feeling festive yet? Let me know your favourite things to do in the build up to Christmas! X

      Me too, I just love city breaks as they don’t feel too daunting with packing etc! They literally have the best selection for candle lovers! Xxx
