It’s that time of year again! Mistletoe, candy cane hot chocolates, wrapping presents in cute paper, hoping for a little snow, these are a few of my favorite things! My other favorite thing is watching Christmas films and dusting off my holiday playlist for a bit of cheer. I, like everyone else, have a few favorites that I always want to indulge in!Continue Reading
IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME GUYS! Okay, I’m sure most of you are already well aware of that fact, but I still really struggle with going from Halloween straight into Christmas. It feels odd, in some way. I certainly don’t begrudge anyone who gets festive in November, but I need a little more time. Now, though, I’m in full Christmas Mode (and really, Christmas is less than 4 weeks away so if not now, when?)! I’m diving straight in with the Christmas Spirit, and here are a few of the things I’m really excited for!
This past weekend, P and I celebrated Friendsgiving. It’s a little tradition we started because I can’t really cope with not celebrating Thanksgiving, aka, the best holiday ever (aside from Christmas). I know what you’re thinking… Thanksgiving is an American holiday, we don’t celebrate it in the UK! For me, Thanksgiving is kind of the start of the holiday season; though when I was little, it felt a lot more like an excuse to have a few extra days off school and also to eat a ridiculous amount of food. As I get older (and now that I’m living in another country), I find it’s much more about appreciating the good things in life, and to have a day where it’s just about good vibes. Plus, my dad always told me that the greatest way to show someone you love them is to cook them a meal. In that spirit, I thought I’d share a few things that I’m thankful for this holiday season.Continue Reading
Well, I am just exhausted. Today is definitely a day for relaxing and only getting up off the couch when absolutely necessary… Yesterday, P and I had a few friends over for Friendsgiving and it was wonderful! I cooked up a huge feast though, so I’m taking a break today! If you need me, I’ll be curled up with a nice hot cup of tea and a Attenborough documentary. Now onto November!Continue Reading
Guys, I’m completely in love. Firstly, I’m in love with this snazzy beret that I picked up a few weeks ago, and secondly, I’m also totally in love with the color! Do you ever just fall in love with a color? Just about every season, I find myself reaching out to one color that I can’t stop wearing. This autumn, I find myself really drawn to deep reds. Merlot, maroon, berry… I don’t know exactly what to call it, but I am all about it!Continue Reading
One of the things I love about London is the staggering number of cafes and coffee shops that exist. Fun fact… I have a Google Map on my phone of all the coffee shops I like, or want to try. I’m not even kidding… I’ve got 30 or so saved on there at the moment, and I’m always adding more… You might remember my mentioning in my post about being an introverted extrovert, that I prefer doing my socializing over a nice latte or a cup of tea, so when it came time to make plan to meet up with Michelle, I whipped out my handy map and picked a spot. I’d mentioned Hally’s as a potential location, and Michelle quickly confirmed that it was also on her radar… so off we went!Continue Reading
