Ornament of the Day, #5

From now until Christmas, I will be sharing my favourite ornaments and their stories every Tuesday and Saturday! I collect ornaments of all kinds- our tree is not a cohesive set of ornaments, bought to be one picture but rather a mish-mash of ornaments that are all over the place but each tell their own story. The ornaments that I will be sharing are ornaments that have a unique story or a special meaning to me, and I hope that you enjoy them!

My Favourite Holiday Books

From many of my blog interactions via comments, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, I think that many of you enjoy reading as much as I do. While I love watching holiday movies, I think I love curling up with a good holiday book even more- there is nothing like putting on comfy pyjamas, sitting in front of the fire with a good cup of tea, and getting lost in the pages for a few hours! Today I’m sharing my favourite holiday books for you to escape for a little bit and get wrapped up in (holiday pun INTENDED), there are both fiction and non-fiction options!

The Magic of Ugly Christmas Sweaters, Style File Friday

Ugly Christmas sweaters areย everywhere. They are in upscale department stores, in dollar stores, book stores, and even in grocery stores; turn your head in a store in October, November, or December, and you will see them for miles. You can get sweaters that are familiar characters, lovable animals, crass idiots, and even just phrases. I’m all for embracing the ugly Christmas sweater trend, because I truly believe that they hold memories in their ugliness. Today I’m sharing just why I love some of the sweaters that I have!

The 5 Best Holiday Movies

Today I’m sharing the 5 best holiday movies out there- I’ve seen pretty much every vaguely Christmas related movie out there (bar horror movies), from the big name block busters to the early morning Hallmark movies that are replayed when no one should be awake. Nothing is more relaxing to me than popping on a Christmas movie and spending a few hours getting lost in holiday cheesiness, and I hope that you can experience the same! Grab some hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies, put on the fire, and get ready to embrace the holidays…

#24daysoftea (aka David’s Tea Advent Calendar)

I love Advent calendars. Even though Iโ€™m not particularly religious, they are one of my favourite parts of the holidays! Countdowns make everything more excited, and when you factor in that each day of the countdown means that you receive a tiny gift, itโ€™s the best possible scenario here. Nowadays you can find chocolate Advent calendars, sock Advent calendars (if I was in the US, I would have that Harry Potter sock calendar from Target ASAP), beauty Advent calendars, short story Advent calendars, and everything in between. Well, obviously I was going to choose a tea related calendar- the Davidโ€™s Tea Advent Calendar!

6 Books to Give to Anyone, Blogmas 2017

I’m a firm believer that there is a book out there for everyone, no matter what their reading level and interests are! I think that books are a wonderful gift, and will make the recipient think of you every time they read it or look at it on their bookshelf. Today I’m sharing book recommendations that work for most people in your life- I’ve focused on books that are relatively easy to find, and relatively affordable. Hopefully this will make your holiday book shopping quick and painless (and maybe help you discover a new book yourself)!
