This year I have Christmas covered!!

In my first post here on this blog I want to share with you all the plans & goals I have for Christmas 2016!!
This is the first year in about 10 years that I will not be working over the holidays (when I say not working I mean my blog is now my full-time job) which means I have all this free time on my hands. I mean I live between Kerry & Cork & my boyfriend (Yes mini life update - I have a boyfriend now!) travels a lot so its not going to be totally uncomplicated (lets face it when is life ever uncomplicated) but now I don't have work getting in the way haha, so I get to blog to my hearts content.  

Complete Goals that were left incomplete last year!

  • Go Ice Skating - Seriously I think one of my very first posts on this blog was about my trip ice skating & I havent been since!! (you can check it out here - Ice Skating! Just a bit of fun or a quick way to A&E? if you wanna read back on an old school post! Anyway this year that's going to change!
  • Watch the Late Late Toy Show - Last year due to work commitments it was just impossible! This year I am going to make it happen!! 
  • Christmas Books - Again time just slipped away last year but not this year & proof? I am going to put up little reviews so that you can read them too & we can all be festive together!! (P.S. Please leave any recommendations in the comments below! I would love a little help and inspiration!! Thank you my loves!)
  • Watch Elf - Yes, Yes I am the only person IN THE WORLD who has not seen elf! Well your wrong.... my boyfriend hasnt seen it either (match made in heaven right!? haha) Anyway this year is my year, I can feel it! We will get some good food & have a lovely christmas movie night!! woop (excited already!!)  

Getting back in the kitchen

By this I mean baking!! I miss baking!! I have already been looking up christmassy recipes and plan on turning my home into winter wonderlands filled with smells of freshly baked cookies, mince pies, ginger bread & all those wonderful goodies!! nom nom #yummy

Getting Personal

I always try to get personal with my gifts and cards but more often then not I find that I run out of time. This I hope to have much more time on my hands so I can spend it on making the gifts that I am giving look and feel more personalised to the people recieving them.

Getting International

I have many friends abroad this time of year & this year I want to connect with them. Just for a little catch up & spread some holiday cheer further around the world then just our little country here on the edge of Europe!

Christmas Markets

Every year Christmas markets take place all across the country & I never seem to be able to find the time to visit them. This year however I want to find the time to at least visit one!! Hopefully more than that but even one would be great!!

So there you have it!! My goals for Christmas 2016! Seriously it is so weird to even write that!! Leave me a comment below & let me know your goals for this holiday season!! Either way hope this next month is absolutely amazing, filled with fun, laughter & sparkle.

Don't Forget Blogmas officially started over on my Beauty Blog as well & I've kicked it off by sharing my Christmas / Winter time Makeup Essentials.
