FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES



I am a massive lover of movies and I love movies even more when they're Christmas related. Some of my favourite movies are Christmas movies. How many times can I say movies? I mean most people tend to have the same favourites but since its Blogmas, I might as well share mine with you too!

ELF

Elf is my all time favourite Christmas movie. I could literally watch it over and over again and never get bored. I have already watched about 10 times and I'm sure I can squeeze in a few more Elf movie nights. For me its one of the most festive movies, Just gets me feeling all warm inside. 

THE GRINCH

This movie is just the epitome of weird. When you actually think about it, its such a weird movie and so un relatable with real life but its just so so good. The songs in it are just fab and the grinch character itself is just such a different character all the other Christmas movies. When your best friend is obsessed with it, its hard not to love it. Imagine if I said I hated it...she'd probably un friend me. 

THE HOLIDAY

I think everyone loves this movie. I don't know how you couldn't love it to be honest. Its not super Christmassy but its just such a cosy movie. The type of movie you sit in bed watching with a hot choc!

CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS

I love this movie. I just love the traditional feel it has. Its like that old fashioned american Christmas and I just love it. Also the main male character in the movie...I have no idea what his name is...plays santa claus in The Santa Claus' movies so its hard not love it. 

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS

My favourite new Christmas movie. I love how its an updated Christmas movie and fits with the technologies of today but still has the traditional Christmas feel. Its such an adorable movie as well. If you haven't watched this one you really are missing out!

THE SANTA CLAUS MOVIES

Possibly the best series of movies. They are just the best traditional Christmas movies and really do get you into the Christmas spirit. I used to love them as a child and still to this day love to watch them. 

I'd love to know what your fave Christmas movies are. Send me a tweet or comment on this post and we can all chat about how amazing Christmas movies are!

A WINTER NIGHT IN





Theres something so lovely about being super cosy inside whilst its freezing outside. Sat in your comfy Pjs snuggled up in a cosy blanket in front of the fire whilst watching a movie. I am such a grandma so this something I absolutely love doing. You can even do it in a classy way with your glass of prosecco in hand. 

I love a night in, I think sometimes they are so needed and when you have the right company they can be the best nights. I can't wait for those times when I am a little bit older and I can sit with my husband and our friends and just have drinks whilst watching a movie. Like I genuinely can't wait for those days. For now, It will just be me and my girls sat in the living room with our prosecco and our fave Christmas movie. Not every night is the right occasion for prosecco so I guess you've got to switch it up with a hot chocolate from time to time. Certainly a good way to relax in the evening. 

My ideal winter night in would be on a really crisp cold evening, one of those where you have just got in from work and you're freezing so you put on your favourite cosy pyjamas ready to warm up. Saying that Id get out my cosy pyjamas, possibly christmas ones but usually the ugliest comfiest pyjamas going with my gross over worn dressing gown popped on over the top. Then Id have a cosy pair of socks on with my Ugg slippers on top. Quite literally my favourite look to wear when I am at home. Not the most glamorous but who needs to be glamorous when you can be super comfy in your ugly pyjamas? Id then probably chuck my hair in into a bun so that I feel comfortable and nothing is annoying me and then get all cosy on the sofa with a big blanket ready to pop on a movie. Ideally Id want someone to cuddle, someone to get cosy with but I don't really have one of those so I'd get cosy with the pillows and find a comfy spot on the sofa. I'd most likely get someone to get the fire going because lets face it, I would be able to do that with supervision. And if I was feeling it, I'd go and make myself a hot chocolate with cream on top just for an extra cosy touch. 

I can't express to you how much I love these kind of evenings. Goodbye wild night out Charlotte, Granny Charlotte has fully replaced her. Part of me is kinda sad about it and the other part of me is like I had fun but its now time for cosy relaxed evenings. You don't have to go out and get drunk to have fun and let your hair down. Its about being with the people you love and enjoy the company of. 

Let me know if you're having any cosy winter nights in. Getting cosy with friends, family or even your love, id love to know your ideal winter night in!

SHINE THIS CHRISTMAS




We all want to shine this Christmas and when you're working hard at work it can be hard to keep yourself in the festive spirit. I have a way to keep that festive spirit alive....by wearing a shiny skirt thats how. Theres something about wearing a silver skirt that just makes me feel fabulous, sassy and ready to take on work this Christmas. 






If you're gunna be stuck at work or uni or whatever you may be doing and you're a bit like ugh because its a very busy time of year...injected a bit of fun into your wardrobe might be what you need to keep yourself feeling fabulous over the christmas period. If you're anything like me, it's also a good way to stop yourself wearing too much black. Although saying that, the majority of this outfit is in fact black. 

Whilst were on the topic of buying a shiny skirt to make you feel fabulous at work, we might as well have a little chat about it. There are so many metallic skirts and even clothing pieces in general that can help your spruce up your wardrobe. This one is from ASOS and may I add, super easy to style as well. Not only great for the festive season but you could deffo get wear from this all year round. Maybe not the hot days of summer however. 





I have styled the skirt with a roll neck jumper from Topshop (similar one here) which keeps the outfit looking clean and smart which I feel is quite a nice vibe to go with for this outfit. I have also popped on a belt to help give a more put together look.  To keep warm, I have added my leather jacket. Accessories for this look are pretty simple but ones that I often get use out of. A little bit of fluffiness for my bag choice and my gorge Topshop heeled boots to give the look an extra bit of sass. 




Even if you are working this Christmas like me, remember that you can make the days more bearable with a festive outfit which makes you feel good. Because at the end of the day who doesn't wanna feel good during the Christmas period. 

See you tomorrow my loves!
