My Christmas Wish List 2017

Hello my lovelies! Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year for so many different reasons. I am big into doing Wish Lists but I haven’t done much on this blog so this will be my first one. This is My Christmas Wish List for this coming year – I know for a fact that I won’t get anything on this but it’s just the stuff that I would like and hopefully it gives you some inspiration!

iPhone 8

I’m a big Apple lover and I currently have a Samsung which I don’t mind but I really would love an iPhone again. The iPhone 8 would be the one that I would want for so many reasons as the iPhone X is over €1,000 but I don’t know who the hell would pay that amount for a phone but the iPhone 8 would be the one that I would and do want.

Olympus Pen

This is the go to camera for bloggers and it’s one that I really want. It would be an amazing camera to use my own photo’s on my blog rather than stock images. I currently don’t have a good camera, so this would be a massive step up for me. I might have to save for this one in the future!

Flights To Chicago

I really would love for someone to buy me my return flight to Chicago in May as we’re heading over for a wedding which I’m excited for. There ranging from €349 to €360 at the moment but I’m hoping to get them in the January Sales if they don’t.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

This is one of the palettes that I’ve had my eyes on for ages. I don’t like spending a lot on palettes but this one is one that I really want as the shades in this product is amazing. Basing on other reviews, it’s something that everyone needs in their collection – I’m going to get this whether it kills me or not!

Favourite Christmas Movies

Hello lovelies! It’s the wonderful time of the year and I am here with another blog post for Blogmas. As I’ve said plenty of times that Christmas is my favourite time of the year and that I’m an avid movie watcher especially at this time of the year. Here are my Favourite Christmas Movies for you lot!

movie-1330523_960_720

Elf

If you haven’t seen Elf you need to. This is one of the funniest and best movies I have watched in a long time. Will Ferrell is amazing as Elf and it’s just a fun story. This is a kids movie, but most Christmas movies are ain’t they? Trailer

Home Alone

This is a bunch of movies that I couldn’t forget and I couldn’t just choose one of these. These are all of the Home Alones and it’s definitely not Christmas without watching these even though I’ve seen these over forty times at this stage. It’s also not Christmas until one of the Home Alone movies are on Television.

HomeAloneThumb

Gremlins

This was a movie that I was terrified of when I was younger and now I watch most of them at Christmas Time. This is definitely an old school movie for me. Even though it’s a bit freaky, it’s so good. It reminds me of what Furby’s could turn into during the night – if that kind of stuff did happen!

Mogwai

Other Christmas Movies

  • Jingle All The Way.
  • The Night Before.
  • Die Hard.
  • Arthur Christmas.
  • The Grinch.
  • Christmas With The Kranks.
  • Scrooge.
  • Love Actually.
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas.
  • It’s A Wonderful Life.
  • Miracle on 34th Street.

What Christmas movies do you like to watch? Do you have any other reccomendations for me to watch this Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.

It’s also so close to Christmas. Hopefully everyone is ready and looking forward to it.

Christmas Traditions

Hey lovelies! It’s time for another Christmas post for you lot. This one is all about Christmas Traditions which will be the old ones and one’s that I hope will become new ones. Since I’ve moved out of my family home, I won’t be doing the normal traditions that I would be doing – so it’s time to make new ones.

christmas-1911637_960_720

Old Traditions

Putting Up The Christmas Tree : This is something that we would do as a family one night during the week but the house would’ve had to be cleaned from top to bottom. My Mum and Dad would be the people to put the two tree’s up and we would sit, and watch them doing it, listening to Christmas Music.

Pub On Christmas Eve : This is something that we have done for the past few years. We would go to the pub to meet up with some family friends to exchange presents and have a few drinks. We would also get to see Santa moving across the sky most years.

Granny’s On Stephen’s Day : We have been going to my Gran’s on Stephen’s Day for years now. We spend Christmas Day at home and then would travel up to Dublin the next day and stay the night. With that we would get our second Christmas Dinner and we would open all of our presents from my Mum’s side of the family.

New Traditions

12 Pubs of Christmas : This is something that I haven’t done before ever and I’m so excited to do this up in Donegal. My partner does it every year so it’s already part of his traditions so I’m excited to add it into my own Christmas Traditions.

Galway Christmas Market :  I am a big lover of Christmas Markets and this year won’t be any different. We will be going to the Galway Christmas Market together and hopefully will make it every year that we’re together for.

Real Christmas Tree : This will be my first year ever to get a Christmas Tree as all that I’ve had are fakes. It will also be something that I’ve wanted for ages and I don’t think after getting a real one, the fakes will be no more!

Do you have any old or new Christmas traditions? Let me know in the comments below!

Boyfriend Gift Guide

Hello my lovelies! This is my first year in ages having a boyfriend for Christmas and I have always struggled to buy presents for guys as they can be so hard to buy for. This is the Boyfriend Gift Guide which my partner has helped me with for you lot – as the guy’s brain is something that I don’t understand.

Joop Aftershave

This is something that my partner say’s is a pretty good buy. This is his favourite aftershave and I have to say that it smells amazingly and lasts. Joop Aftershave isn’t that expensive and it’s widely available. You can get this for €31 in Boots or Argos.

Play Station Four

I know for a fact that so many guys want this and it would make there Christmas without a doubt. This has been out for a year and a bit so the price has gone down a good bit. You can get this for as cheap as €249.99 in Little Woods! Your fella will love you but you may regret getting this for him – you may have to come second to the Play Station!

Football Tickets

Guys love the football but not all guys. If your boyfriend is into football, you should get him tickets to his favourite team. Football season should still be going on in the New Year or even tickets to the World Cup in Russia if your home country has qualified.

Memory Book

If you want to do something special for the man in your life – this is probably one of the best things you can do. A memory book is something that he would cherish and love – you can start from day one or do one for the year. I know this is something that I am 100% thinking about doing but I’m not sure yet.

The Christmas Tag

Hello lovelies! Since it’s so close to Christmas and the fact it’s #Blogmas! I am going to be doing The Christmas Tag for you lot which I wasn’t tagged in but I don’t care. I’m not going to tag anyone in this but if you want to do this tag,  I tag you! Christmas is an amazing time of the year so I hope this post will give you an insight to my Christmas loves and hates.

christmas-tag

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie?

Oh my! I do have a lot of different favourite movies. My top 3 would have to be any of the Home Alones, The Santa Claus and Elf.

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Yes I have. Pretty sure it was in 2010 when the schools were closed for two weeks because of the snow as we had a 4 week Christmas Break. Hopefully will have a White Christmas this year as I am up the North of Ireland now.

3. Where do you normally spend Christmas?

I would normally spend it at home and then go to my Nanny’s on Stephens’ Day. This year will be different as I am 260km away and live with the boyfriend.

4. What is your favourite Christmas Song?

It would have to be Fairy Tale of New York which I have been listening since the middle of November. I do think it’s overplayed too.

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

I have done in the past when we met up with family friends for a few drinks. I’m not sure if we’ll do it this year as I’m not sure if I’m going home or not yet.

6. Can you name all of Santa’s Reindeer?

Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Rudolph, Donner, Blitzen, Cupid and Comet – Yes I can!

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?

I’m not too sure as I don’t have any traditions with my boyfriend nor his family.

8. Is your Christmas Tree real or fake?

The one back at home is fake but we will be getting a real tree this year – it’l be my first real one.

9. What is your all time favourite Christmas Goodie?

It would have to be a candy cane – can’t beat them!

10. Do you like giving gifts or receiving them?

Can I say both? Both give me an amazing feeling.

11. What is the best Christmas Gift you have ever received?

I honestly can’t remember any gifts from when I was younger so in recent years – it would have to be a phone or a laptop.

12. What is your dream place to visit for the holiday?

My dream place has to be either New York as it just looks amazing at Christmas or even Australia.

13. Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I fail miserably. I cannot wrap presents for the life of me.

14. Most memorable holiday moment?

I honestly have no clue. A constant memorable moment would have to be walking down the stairs on Christmas morning with that feeling of excitement and nervousness.

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?

I actually had to get told that Santa wasn’t real. I was about 14 years old, which I know is old but it made sense. Ever since then, Christmas has never been the same.

16. Do you make New Years Resolutions and do you keep to them?

I always make a number of them as I do think ” New Year, New Me ” sort of thing. I honestly have only kept to one or two of them but this year, I do want to change things around and actually keep to them.

17. What makes the holiday special for you?

It would have to be spending time with family that you would never spend time with. Seeing people opening they’re gifts is also amazing.
