HOW TO: Unwind on Christmas Eve

Hello Everybody, and welcome to Blogmas day 13!

Now, I don’t know about you but I am so excited for Christmas Eve! The thought of sitting on the couch, with a hot chocolate, nibbles and Nathan makes me so so happy. It’s like the calm before the storm, you know, relaxing before the craziness of Christmas Day kicks off.

On Christmas Eve, I love spending the day baking and just doing relaxing things that I find enjoyable. This could be anything from – a long winter walk, to going for a swim! Then when I come back home I’ll go for a nice bath, using my beloved LUSH bath bombs and bubble wand. My favourite, is the Christmas Star with cinnamon in it… smells AMAZING. It just gives you that warm christmassy smell, which is exactly what you want on Christmas Eve!

Now, after a bath I put on a big fluffy onesie and make myself one of my bangin’ hot chocolates. (Expect a cheeky little recipe coming your way soon). Then I’ll make myself all cosy on the couch with some snacks, and whack on the Christmasy-est movie you can find!

After the movie has finished, I find it nice to get ready for bed and settle down with a good book! Of course, not everyone likes reading so feel free to scroll through Facebook or Twitter until you fall asleep… whatever floats your boat ya know.  Then I fall asleep with the excitement a 6 year old would get on Christmas Eve! Not going to lie, but I still, to this day, get butterflies/excitement on Christmas Eve. I just love it so much.
