BLOGMAS #7 | 10 Things I Want To Do This Christmas

If you haven't noticed already, I am SO behind with my Blogmas posts. Last week was hectic and me being the lazy unorganised person I am completely forgot to schedule any posts at all. So here I am with Blogmas #7, I will be posting twice a day hopefully to catch up with my Blogmas posts as I determined to complete it this year!

If there is something I don't really have over Christmas, it's Christmas Traditions. Everyone seems to have something they do every year, but I've never done something every year religiously. I really want to change that as I think the idea of traditions is so cute and it's always something to look forward to.

Visit the Christmas Markets | This is something that I've done as a sort of tradition over the past few years and I absolutely love doing it. I've already planned my trip to the Christmas Markets this year with Becky from Becky Bedbug, she is my favourite and we are going to have a ball! Christmas markets are just beautiful and so so festive, especially my local one as they have ice skating right in the centre! 

Buy a Christmas Jumper | I have never owned a Christmas jumper, like ever. I own a Christmas onesie but that's about as far as I've ever gone, but I've seen some pretty cute jumpers this year and I just have to buy one.

Go Ice Skating | Ice skating is one of my favourite hobbies ever, I've always wanted to take ice skating up and get lessons but along side horses and rugby I really don't have time. I haven't been ice skating for a few years so it is my plan this year to go and try not to crash into anyone. I'm joking, I can ice skate, kind of.

Decorate My Room | I'm not having a Christmas tree at home this year, as I am going away for Christmas, but I really want to decorate my room so I feel more festive. I usually have a little tree in my room anyway but I seem to have misplaced it up in the loft, so I'm gonna have another hunt around for it, and failing that I will cover my room in even more fairy lights.

Have a Christmas Film Day | Christmas films are the best films. There is no denying it. If you can tell me you don't love Home Alone then I'll probably think you're lying. They've recently added a bunch of Christmas films to Netflix so I'm going to have a binge day watching films and wrapping presents, could I get any more festive?

Bake Something Christmassy | Baking used to be something I did all the time, but now I couldn't tell you the last time I cooked something that wasn't for dinner. Making a gingerbread house is something I've wanted to do for years and I finally may attempt to make one this year, if it goes well I'm sure there will be a post on it. If it fails, you will never hear about it and I'll rock up a batch of Christmas type cakes or something.

Have a Costa White Hot Chocolate (or 100) | I have actually already fulfilled this, I went to Costa on the 1st and grabbed myself a white hot chocolate and I am definitely regretting waiting so long to get one. I have a Costa at work so I can see this becoming a regular tradition over the next month.

Stock Up On Lush Goodies | Christmas is the best excuse for a Lush haul. I am going to stock up on a few things to last me up until Christmas. I am waiting for their Boxing Day Sale to spend all my money on it, it's crazy but Lush is so worth it. 

Winter Walks and Rides | I definitely prefer going on walks in the Winter than any other time of year, I just love it when it's cold and you can wrap up really warm and everything outside just looks so cold and crisp. I am exactly the same with riding horses, I do love how light it is in the Summer, and hate how cold my hands get in the Winter, but there is nothing better than taking your horse out on a chilly winter day, especially when it snows. I love snow. 

Visit More Family | If there is something I suck at it's definitely visiting my family. I live very close to my Dad and one set of my grandparents but I rarely see them, and it's something I really want to make more of an effort with. Not everyone is around forever and it's really easy to take advantage of your family, if you don't live close enough to visit remember to pick up the phone every once in a while. At the end of the day you can't change your family.

Is there anything you want to do over the Christmas period?
