December Favourites 2019 :)

December Favourites 2019 :)
  1. Dickinson- My friend Hannah suggested this show to me and I absolutely loved it!! She ended up coming to my house to watch it because its on Apple TV which she didn’t have. It has Hailee Steinfeld in it who I absolutely love and the show tells the story of Emily Dickinson.

2. His Dark Materials- I am a big fan of the Dark Materials book series and am also a big fan of Lin Manuel Miranda so this series is right up my street!! I absolutely loved this series and I am really hoping they do a second series!!

3. Merry Happy Whatever- Bridget Mendler and Ashley Tisdale in a tv show together is always going to be a favourite of mine ๐Ÿ˜Š I don’t think that I know another Christmas based tv show but I love the idea!!

Let me know in the comments what you have been loving in December ๐Ÿ˜Š

Christmas Day!!!!

Christmas Day!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope you are all having a wonderful day with your family. eating lots of good food and opening some nice presents โค

On Christmas day my family and I usually wake up slightly late, open half of our presents, have a nice cooked breakfast and then open the rest of our presents โค

After that we will curl up and watch a Christmas movie/lounge around reading waiting till we have some party food and then get ready to go round to my nans for Christmas dinner โค

This year Maya received lots and lots of new toys and she didn’t know what to do there were too many of them to choose from!! She even started opening her presents herself and picking them up herself to open- we had to keep an eye on her to make sure she was only picking up her own presents!!

I can’t quite believe that Blogmas is over!! I’m going to try and write as many posts as I can before the end of 2020 and then take a two week break after that โค

Let me know in the comments what your Christmas day looks like ๐Ÿ™‚

Snow Day/Chill Day in my life :)

Snow Day/Chill Day in my life :)

When I have a chill day which have actually been few and far between in December as I have been working 5 days a week and then seeing friends on the weekend โค however when I do have a chill day this is usually how it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

I wake up and let Maya out of her cage so she can jump up onto my bed for 5 minutes before taking her downstairs so that she can go to the toilet. I will then have some breakfast, make sure Maya has food for her breakfast and then get her ready to take for a walk ๐Ÿ™‚ In order to do this I usually just grab a hoodie, jogging bottoms and my dog walking bag ๐Ÿ™‚

When I get back from taking the dog out I will have a nice bath as I don’t usually have the chance to do this during the week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I always use a bath bomb or bubble bar as they make the room smell so lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been using the Bath and Body works Winter Candy Apple body wash which I absolutely love and it smells so good!!

After a bath I will then write some blog posts, read a book, watch a movie or tv show, play with Maya and chill ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you get up to on your chill days at home ๐Ÿ™‚

Mayas first Christmas :)

Mayas first Christmas :)

As you can see from the image this will be Mayas first Christmas and she has already started with some of the Christmas traditions ๐Ÿ™‚ We got her a Christmas Advent Calendar which after she started to understand what it was she now gets very excited whenever she sees it ๐Ÿ™‚ She also got a very early Christmas present which was an agility tunnel- I want to start doing some agility classes with her in the New Year so we decided to start with a tunnel ๐Ÿ™‚ While wrapping up her Christmas presents of which she has many (more than anyone else in the house :P) she was very confused as to why she couldn’t play with the toys now and was barking at me through the door.

She was very interested at first in the Christmas tree but is now completely used it and pays no attention to it ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so excited for her to get her presents and enjoy the day with us ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know in the comments what you did for your pets first Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚
