Blogmas Day Twelve: 2021 Reflections

2021 has been a strange year. In some ways it’s been good, and I feel like I’m ending the year in a better place than I started. But this year saw a lot of change in my personal life, too, and it hasn’t been easy at all. I don’t know what 2022 holds, but hopefullyContinue reading “Blogmas Day Twelve: 2021 Reflections”

Blogmas Day Eleven: The Princess Switch

Yep, I actually managed to watch one of the films from my Festive Films list! Hopefully I’ll get to the others some time soon. For those who, like me, are a bit late to the game with Netflix’s Christmas movies, The Princess Switch is a 2018 film romantic comedy, staring Vanessa Hudgens. It’s a PrinceContinue reading “Blogmas Day Eleven: The Princess Switch”

Blogmas Day Nine: Christmas Songs

There are two Christmas songs I absolutely love, that you won’t really hear on the radio in December, and which are unlikely to appear on many Christmas playlists. Still, I usually find some version of them to stick on, and today I thought I’d highlight these two as part of my Blogmas posts! The 12Continue reading “Blogmas Day Nine: Christmas Songs”

Blogmas Day Eight Festive Films – Old Favourites

A few days ago I talked about the films I want to watch this Christmas, but we all have those comfort films we return to year after year, don’t we? The ones we spend most of the year itching to watch, but knowing it just wouldn’t feel right unless it’s almost Christmas. So today IContinue reading “Blogmas Day Eight Festive Films – Old Favourites”

Blogmas Day Six: What’s In Your Stocking?

I love stockings. And I miss stockings! It used to be such a joy, waking up on Christmas morning and finding one gently laid on the end of the bed by ‘Santa’ (aka my lovely dad). For me, I couldn’t open my stocking until my brothers were awake (or maybe I could, but I justContinue reading “Blogmas Day Six: What’s In Your Stocking?”

Blogtober Day Five: A Castle For Christmas

Almost immediately after finishing my Festive Films post, I headed downstairs and put on, not one of the films on my list, but A Castle for Christmas, Netflix’s new Christmas offering. And I loved it. If you’re going to watch this one please remember that, like many films, this isn’t an accurate depiction of theContinue reading “Blogtober Day Five: A Castle For Christmas”

Blogmas Day Four: Festive Films I Want to Watch

I have a confession to make: I have never, ever seen a Hallmark Christmas movie. I know, I know, disgraceful! But maybe it’s because they were never really a thing over here, not like they are in the States, so they weren’t shown on TV? But luckily for me, Netflix seems to have taken overContinue reading “Blogmas Day Four: Festive Films I Want to Watch”

Blogmas Day Three: Childhood Christmas

Today I thought I’d share some memories of Christmas from when I was a kid! Because really, we do tend to lose some of the magic of Christmas as we get older, but these memories are always precious, and this time of year always reminds me of when it felt like hours and hours beforeContinue reading “Blogmas Day Three: Childhood Christmas”

Blogmas Day Two: My 2021 Festive Reads!

I don’t always get the chance to actually read Christmas themed books around Christmas, but this year has been different as I got approved for a few on NetGalley! I’ve been making my way through these, so for Day 2 of Blogmas I thought I’d discuss what I’ve been reading/am planning to read! Currently ReadingHumbugContinue reading “Blogmas Day Two: My 2021 Festive Reads!”

Blogmas Day One: Christmas Songs Tag!

I had so much fun doing my Hamilton Book Tag and when I was contemplating Blogmas and what I could do for it (and hopefully this will be more successful than my Blogtober efforts!) I thought a Christmas Songs Book Tag would be a lot of fun! All I Want for Christmas Is You AContinue reading “Blogmas Day One: Christmas Songs Tag!”
