Today I thought that I’d write about a few of my favourite things ( No I’m not about to break into song!). I haven’t put them in order because I feel that I couldn’t put them in order (It would have taken me hours and then when I finished I would have changed my mind!) This post is going to be slightly more chatty than my regular posts, please do tell me if you prefer this format!
My family are so important to me and there are some days when I don’t want to talk to anyone but them, most of my childhood memories are with them and I honestly can’t imagine my life without them.
Christmas is hands down my absolute favourite time of the year. Partly because I prefer the cold to the heat, me and heat don’t mix well (unless I’m on a beach!), don’t get me wrong I love Summer but I totally adore Winter and Christmas. I love snow, fairy lights, the songs! I also love baking around Christmas time, Gingerbread men, sugar cookies, mince pies, Hot chocolate and basically anything with cinnamon in it! (I am getting so hungry right now!) I also love to go gift shopping for my family and friends and to finish it off by watching a Christmas movie by the fire with my hot chocolate and a gingerbread man wrapping the presents! Christmas movies are just the best, aren’t they! Whether you’re snuggling up with a hot chocolate by yourself on a cold day or just having it on in the background. (Not going to lie I watched Home alone a couple weeks ago in July, JULY!! I’m crazy, please tell I’m not the only one!) My favourite Christmas movie is Elf, what’s yours? I’m going to stop rambling about Christmas in the summertime now!
I LOVE Harry Potter, it is such a big part of me, I love reading the books over and over again and I think I have watched all the movies about 10 times each and they still don’t get boring, my heart melts every time I see them. I have Hermione’s wand which I absolutely love! When I’m in a lazy mood I’ll say “accio” and that gives me the power to get up and get it! or imagine it flying towards me. I refuse to think that Harry Potter isn’t real, and Hogwarts is my second home! I could honestly ramble on about Harry Potter for days so if you’re a pottered and want to see more Harry Potter posts please let me know!
Baths & pampering
I generally prefer baths in the winter but I do like them in the summer as well. If I have had a long hard day one of my favourite things to do is run a bath put some bubble bath in (Zoella’s bubble baths are my favourite ones) and maybe treat myself with a Lush bath bomb. I think pampering yourself every once in a while is very important. Exfoliate yourself, maybe do a face mask, put on a body cream afterwards. Then just spend the rest of the evening calm and phone free!
Baking is definitely one of my favourite hobbies, I love to both try out new recipes and re make loved old ones and occasionally try making up my own recipe (a couple days ago I made up a recipe for pumpkin cookies, and somehow they actually turned out quite well!) which usually fails, but sometimes it kind of works. I also like to try new recipes that are sugar free as I think sugars nice from time to time when it’s a treat but as a daily thing it’s not good, so I try to stay away from it but sometimes I have to have some sort of sugary thing to indulge in!
Well those are my top five favourite things! I hope you enjoyed this post and that it helped you get to know me a little bit better!
Have a great day!
