I’m 100% a sunshine girl and there’s nothing I love more than soaking up the sun and prancing around in a bikini and some denim shorts. It’s where I truly believe my heart belongs, I was born to swim in the warm ocean and for my skin to be bronzed all year round. I do, however, love Winter and if I did ever get the chance to immigrate then I would definitely make my way home for Christmas. I’m not Christian or even religious at all but Christmas to me is family time and it’s where we all take some time off from work to eat, play games, drink and enjoy one another’s company.
Snow – We don’t tend to get much of it and when we do it often quickly turns in to slush! I do love it when we get snow though, everything is so peaceful and quiet.
Christmas Markets – It’s become a little tradition of mine and Josh’s that we visit the German markets in Manchester. It sets us off for Christmas, putting us in the spirit by treating ourselves to some really good food and some much needed time together.
Hot Chocolate – and of course, marshmallows! Coming in from a long day at work or a cold afternoon out walking (not that I’ve done much walking lately), there’s really nothing tastier and warming than a hot chocolate.
Chunky Knits – As much as I love cute little dresses and my Levi denim shorts, I love Winter fashion and I love searching online for cosy knits. I picked up the most perfect over sized, roll neck knit from & Other Stories when I visited Manchester and it’s not been off my back1
Candles and Fairy Lights – I love candles! As soon as the nights draw in, I am in with my matchsticks lighting my tea lights and Yankee candles. This for me resembles the beginning on Winter.
Christmas Day – I feel very fortunate that I get to spend Christmas with all of my close family. There is only 6 of us, including Josh who is spending his first Christmas with us. I love the atmosphere, all the food, the drink, the laughs and best of all the films on the tele.
