BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 24 - Christmas Eve

So I didn't quite manage the last couple of days of Blogmas, things just got so so busy and I used up my prepared posts far too quickly! I feel writing the posts after Christmas would be irrelevant and they wouldn't be my best content. I will definitely have more written in advance for next year! 

I just wanted to post for the final day to thank everyone who joined me for Blogmas this year, I hope you enjoyed reading my posts. I had a great time planning content this year and I especially love 'pretend' shopping online for my gift guide posts! I really do enjoy blogging as a little hobby.

I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and I'll be back posting again soon! In the meantime, I will be posting snaps of my Christmas break over on my Instagram @thelittleblogofeverything.

Merry Christmas!

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 20 - Cosy Night In

There is nothing better sometimes than a night in doing absolutely nothing and the winter nights make make it even better. I have been really busy this month doing on thing or another so I took some time out last weekend to have some me time.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 19 - 10 Celebrity Men I'd like to find under my Christmas Tree (#mcm)

I'm back with more of a novelty kind of post today. Taking into considering it is in fact Man Crush Monday (#mcm),  I thought I would put more of a festive spin on it by choosing 10 celebrity men that I'd like to find under my Christmas tree! Not like this would ever happen but yeah, we can dream right?! Here are my picks in no particular order:

BLOGMAS DAY 18 2016 - Gift Wrapping

I take so much pride in my gift wrapping as I honestly love picking out different paper, gift tags, ribbon etc. This year didn't quite go to plan as I chose my initial  theme then kept seeing things in the shops that I liked more so it is a bit of a mixed bag! 

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 17 - My Favourite Christmas Adverts

One of the first signs of Christmas I think is the start of the Christmas adverts on the telly. Some are so hyped up such as what the John Lewis one will be and who will take the crown for the best Christmas ad of the year. I thought I would share my favourites from recent years for today's post. I have selected my all time favourite, my favourite from this year and one I think deserves a special mention.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 16 - Christmas Jumper Day

In honour of Christmas Jumper Day, here are my top picks of the Christmas Jumper's in the shops this year! I have to admit I am yet to take my Christmas jumpers out of storage this year... but I will definitely get them out at some point before Christmas Day! 

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 15 - Christmas Home Decor

Yesterday I shared  how we have decorated our Christmas tree this year so for today's Blogmas post I am going to share some snaps of the other bits of Christmas decor in our home! We have what is called a '1st of December' box where the majority of decorations are taken out except the tree. This particular box though is no longer a single box and is in fact about 12 boxes but the name still stands!

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 14 - What's On My Tree!

We were slightly late in putting our Christmas tree up this year as there didn't seem to be a free night when we were all able to come together to decorate it! I would quite like to put it up at the beginning of December but well better late than never! 

We have had a white tree for quite a number of years now which we have swapped in and out with a real tree but the white one is back for 2016! I'm not overly keen on tinsel as I prefer Christmas tree's without it but it's not too bad if it is all the same colour! This year's theme is red.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 13 - London Photo Diary

Last month, I went on a short city break with my friend to London! Since purchasing a new camera, I am terribly guilty of taking it places with me and leaving the memory card in my laptop at home. I had great intentions of getting loads of photos with my camera in London and I did actually remember my memory card! However it had other ideas and would not take a single picture even thought there was plenty of space on the card. I managed to pick up a new card towards the end of our trip so I still managed to get some nice scenic photos of the shops and Christmas lights! If you would like to see what I bought in London, head on over to Blogmas Day 3.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 12 - My Best Dressed at the Critics' Choice Awards

You don't need to look far on my blog to discover that I love Awards Shows. This has spanned from me being quite little loving the British Soap Awards to following the big awards nights such as the Globes and the Emmys now.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 11 - Beauty Lovers Gift Guide

For Blogmas Day 11, I have put together a little bit of a different gift guide which is entirely made up from products you can find in my own personal makeup bag! Everyone knows a beauty lover and the majority products I have selected are big cult products so the ultimate beauty guru may own them already BUT I think these are brilliant products that any girl would love this Christmas.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 10 - The Christmas Tag

Blogmas wouldn't be Blogmas without a Christmas Tag so here goes Blogmas Day 10! Many thanks to Sharon Xox for sharing this one. 

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 9 - Girls Day Out

I'm back today with another photo diary of things I have been up to so far in December! Last weekend, I went on a city trip with one of my friends, here is some snaps from our day:

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 8 - Advent Tree

The past few years my Mum has made my sister and I a homemade advent tree but this year she has honestly taken it to the next level. The tree was initially bought from Hobby Craft and we usually decorate it different for each season such as eggs hanging from the branches at Easter etc. It often sits on our hallway stairs decorated with fairy lights during the time in between the holidays. 

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 7 - Christmas Market

I was lucky enough to manage to go to the Christmas Market in Edinburgh this year and it was amazing. I never even considered it would be the size it is, making it a rather magical attraction. I would advise wrapping up warm as it was very cold and to take waiting times into consideration when planning your trip as it got extremely busy. Here is a few snaps I took on the day:

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 6 - TV Boxset Gift Guide

This is my third year now doing Blogmas (how times flies!) and I have featured this every year as I love TV and really pride myself on making a good TV show recommendation. I have picked my recommendations on new and all time personal favourites of mine. I would say they were definitely pitched at girls but that doesn't mean guys couldn't enjoy them too!

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 5 - My Christmas Wishlist

Today I am going to share my Christmas wishlist which is pretty small this year! I usually buy things that I would like during the year so I don't really need anything and these are more things that I have liked for a while now.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 4 - Stocking Fillers For Him

On Blogmas Day 1, I shared 25 Stocking Fillers ideas for girls so here is the 25 for the men in your life! I find guys way less fun to shop for, maybe because I can't make selections on items I would actually like myself... but hey, I think this list is a pretty good mixed bunch!

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 3 - Black Friday & Holiday Haul

I have done FAR too much shopping recently as I was on holiday at the start of November and then Black Friday was last week of course... but in my defence a lot of it was online and will be sent back as I was struggling to find a Christmas party outfit and I just started mass ordering to find something I liked!

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 2 - My Favourite Christmas Movies

I am yet to watch a Christmas movie this year, but then I would be lying if I wasn't occasionally tempted to watch Elf in like July.  I think watching Christmas movies are such a big part of the festive season so I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you.

BLOGMAS 2016 DAY 1 - 25 Stocking Fillers for Girls

It doesn't even feel a year since the last Blogmas but I'm back with my first post for 2016!  I have blogged this year as much as I would have liked to so I challenged myself to be more consistent from this post forward. I have compiled a list of 25 stocking fillers for girls which are a mix of things that I have myself and others that I personally would love to find in my stocking on Christmas Day. I tried to keep my choices affordable yet throw in a few odd things that are a little bit more special too.
