December To Do List

Is anyone else obsessed with writing to do lists? We have one master copy to do list but then we also seem to have so many other daily to do lists flying around reminding us of all the work we have to do. We have therefore decided to document our December to do list (mostly fun things).

Life can get so busy especially in December that sometimes we forget to just stop and take a look back at everything we wanted to do, so we thought if we document it we have to do it right?

What is on your December to do list? We would love to know as always!

Blogmas- We are so excited to be taking part in Blogmas again this year, we loved it last year but it does mean our to list has grown and Blogmas has justified its own to do list.

Baking everything Christmas related- We love baking all things seasonal especially at Christmas time! We spend our lives on Pinterest gathering all the inspiration we need to get in the kitchen and make the house smell like sugar and spice.

Attend a carol concert- This is one of our favourite things to do at Christmas time and last year we didn’t get round to going to a carol concert together.

Drink copious amounts of Mulled Wine- Need we say more? We love mulled wine and we even made our own last year which was incredible.

Watch endless Christmas films- Snuggled on the sofa with the fire on, hot chocolate in hand wrapped in a blanket our idea of heaven.

Winter walks- Just because its cold outside doesn’t mean you have to spend all of your time inside, get outside and explore the countryside.

Eat all the advent calendars- Chocolate for breakfast? Errrr yes please!

Put up the Christmas tree and outside lights- A tradition that will never end!

Wear tacky Christmas jumpers- If you see two girls wearing identical tacky Christmas jumpers walking around you can probably assume that is us.

Watching and take part in Vlogmas- We will be taking part in Vlogmas for the first time this year, we won’t be Vlogging everyday but we will try and film as often as possible. Watching Vlogmas is one of our favourite things to do we always catch up on it in the gym when we are doing some cardio.

Spend time with friends & Family- December is the month were everyone makes the effort to see family and friends and we absolutely love it.

Buy Christmas presents- Thankfully we have already started (super organised this year) but we still have a few more bits to get!

December Favourites

As 2016 draws to a close, can’t believe how quick it has gone, we write up our final ‘favourites’ post of the year.

We have been super busy on the lead up to Christmas so it has been quite nice to sit down, relax and reflect on the past month and remember all our favourite things of the month and of course mot of them are going to be Christmas related!

1. Festive baking- we feel we have done an awful lot of baking this month, using Christmas as an excuse to bake and taste delicious sweet treats has been fab, but we have also baked some healthy goodies too. We get quite a  lot of our inspiration from Pinterest, finding ourselves scrolling through boards late at night. We though we would share our favourite bakes on this post. All these pictures you can find recipes for on our blog 🙂

2. Christmas dinners- this time of year is most deinfitely when you over indulge, in particular when it comes to epic an Christmas dinner. It seems we have had some sort of Christmas meal at least once a week in the month of December. We visited a lovely local pub with our friends from school for a Christmas dinner. We have had many Christmas lunches at work too, pigs in blankets, stuffing and brussel sprouts all round!

3. Festive bedding- any excuse to buy some new bedding, and Christmas themed is even better. There are so many places selling gorgeous bedding. Primark have a large selection at excellent value, George also have lots of bedding to choose from and also Next. If you didn’t get any this year, then why not make it a mew tradition in 2017!

4. Terry’s chocolate orange- we absolutely love terry’s chocolate orange at Christmas time, especially when it is on offer in almost every shop you step in! We also love buying the mini segment bags and the popping candy ones are also really good. Our love for chocolate orange will continue all year round but at Christmas we don’t need an excuse to eat it! Check out our Melting Chocolate snowman blog post here, where you can find our super chocolaty hot chocolate made with Terry’s Chocolate Orange of course!

5. Support for our blog- this month we took the bold decision to share our blog on our personal Facebook pages. This was a big deal for us, so we think that this will be our highlight of the month of December. We are very proud of ourselves for doing this, so December 2016 will be remembered forever!

Wonder what our January 2017 favourites will be, we cannot wait to make more memories and find out!
