20 Reasons You Should Be Excited For Christmas

   


01. Pigs.In.Blankets... need I say more?

02. Chocolate for breakfast is pretty much law. Whether that is in the form of an advent calendar or a tin of Celebrations. Yeah that's right. I said TIN. The whole tin. Not just one measly chocolate!

03. Decorating the house for Christmas is my absolute fav. Turning all the main lights off and just having the Christmas tree fairy lights on is summat' special.

04. Hearing the Coca Cola advert "Holiday's Are Coming" and instantly feeling festive as fuck. If that song doesn't get you excited for Christmas, you need help.

05. The festive hot chocolate range at Costa is LIFE. I am all over that Billionaire's Hot Choc like a fly on shit.

07. Magic Xmas is here & I couldn't be happier. Aaron hates it & to be honest, no shits are given.

08. It's deemed acceptable to watch Christmas films everyday; Elf & Christmas With The Cranks are my go-to's. Along with Muppet Christmas Carol & The Polar Express. FYI.

09. You can roll around in your festive as F flannel pyjamas on your special "it can only be used at Christmas" bedding. Because why the hell not.

10. Cheese. All the cheese. Especially Camembert. Give me a French stick and a camembert and i'll be your BFF.

11. Buying Christmas scented candles and acting like you love them when in actual fact, you can't stand the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg or anything spiced.

12. It's acceptable (so I've heard) to have a drink pretty much everyday in December. Everyone seems to throw around the reason "Christmas innit?" Why yes. Yes it is. So i'll go back to chugging my pitcher of Bucks Fizz Sharon, if that's alright with you?!

13. I can dress my child up like Christmas has literally thrown up all over him and he can't do sweet FA about it. Firstly because he quite literally can't say anything & secondly, he wants to please his Mama. It's the least the little he-beast could do.

14. You can spend one whole afternoon dedicated to wrapping presents with a Christmas film on in the background (setting the mood and all that), a tin of chocolates and a festive beverage not too far out of reach.

15. The Christmas adverts are out in force; John Lewis usually has it in the bag & is a firm favourite every year but I also love the supermarket ones! There is something about Kevin the Carrot...

16. Foot long Jaffa Cake boxes are here and if you think I wouldn't be able to finish the whole box off in one sitting, you'd be sadly mistaken....

17. Christmas jumpers are socially acceptable to wear outdoors without getting dodgy looks from Eileen next door, and the best thing is, the tackier the better!

18. Christmas dinner is the best thing ever & if I was on death row, for my last meal I would sure as shit pick my Mama's Christmas dinner. Turkey...roasties..and all the trimmings (except the sprouts!), if you read my 2017 Christmas Tag, you'll know how I feel about those hideous green balls of filth.

19. Walking up & down the Christmas aisle's in the supermarkets and cooing over all the festive treats! You very rarely buy anything, but just knowing they are there is enough to appease you.

20. Hanging out with your favourite people! Whether that's family, friends or your cat. You spend the day eating, playing and hurling abuse at each other but would you change it? Would ya fuck..

Are you excited for Christmas? What gets you ready & raring for December 25th?

Christmas Gift Guide For Mums.

    



I can't believe how close Christmas is! Aaron has been asking me for weeks what he can buy me and I've struggled so much for ideas. I think because I have been so worried and focused on what I was going to buy for everyone else, I completely forgot to even think about what I want! Motherhood in a nutshell right there...
I thought I would come up with a selection of gifts that would be perfect for mums, some as main presents and some as little stocking fillers. Here is my Christmas Gift Guide For Mums.


Christmas Gift Guide For Babies & Toddlers.

   


I can't believe that this Christmas, I will have a baby! A seven month old he-beast who I can dress up like an elf & who will most probably be more interested in the wrapping paper than any of the presents we have bought him. It's so exciting buying presents for our own little boy and I can't wait to put them under the tree.

All his presents are currently wrapped & ready to go to my mums (we go there on Christmas morning & all open our presents together) but I know we struggled for a couple of ideas as it's hard to know what he'll be into and we didn't want to buy anything too young for him, that he won't be interested in, in a couple of months. As it is his first Christmas, I wanted to give him a few extra special presents that we can keep forever. Here is my Christmas Gift Guide For Babies & Toddlers.

Baby Led Weaning: Lunch Ideas // GUEST POST

   


Hi, I’m Amy, Mama to Freddie who is nine and a half months old. I started my blog around five months ago as a way to honestly document my journey as a first-time Mum. I blog about all things motherhood from very personal posts to product reviews and recommendations and a little bit of Mama & Baby fashion too. 

Weaning is such an exciting experience! You get to see your baby explore different flavours and textures and enjoy mealtimes together too. However once your baby is having more than one meal a day it can also be an additional thing to plan and think about on top of everything else. Below are my five, easy baby-led lunches which will hopefully ensure mealtimes are stress free. All of them can be adapted to suit your baby’s preferences and are suitable for you too!

Personalised Gifts For Dads | All Under £20.

  

One thing I have always struggled with when it comes to gift giving, is what to buy the men in my life!? I just find men so much harder to buy for and now I have the added pressure of buying Aaron presents from Teddy and with it being his first Christmas as a Daddy, I want to make it really special. Whenever I've asked him for ideas, he never has a clue, so I just have to hunt online for inspiration and hope all my presents go down well.
