2015 in Review

2015 was a mixed year for me, full of ups and downs, rights and wrongs and most definitely change... a whole lotta change. I can't believe how fast this year has gone, it feels like only two minutes since my birthday in February and here I am, closer to being 19 than I am to my 18th birthday. I guess you can say a lot has changed through the course of this year, but that's the point of time and progression - if everything remained the same life would be pretty boring and soon enough, the people you know and love would become one dimensional and fake. 

Blogmas Day Ten - Christmas on a Budget

As you know, I am at university and therefore I don't have all the money in the world. I knew Christmas would be a different experience because, for the first time, I not only have to buy Christmas presents, but my food as well...

Blogmas Day Nine - Uni Christmas Day!!

So the day has finally arrived... it's my University Christmas Day, it's been amazing! It actually felt like Christmas which was pretty cool, although now I'm more excited for the real Christmas day if that's even possible... 

Blogmas Day Eight - Uni Xmas Eve...

Ok, I know what you're thinking; 'CHARLOTTE, IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS EVE YET!' I know, I know, I'm not that eager. But there is an explanation...

Blogmas Day Seven - My Christmas Playlist

I think it's a rule of Christmas that you have cheesy Christmas songs playing every hour of the day. There are so many great, classic songs that sometimes it's hard to choose which one to play first, and that's where the magic of a Christmas playlist comes in. These songs practically make Christmas, and everyone loves to dance and sing to them, with that in mind here is my Christmas playlist...

Blogmas Day Six - Skyping Home and Decorating the Tree

Since I am at university until mid-late December, I won't be at home for the annual tree decorating we have at home. I was pretty miffed about this because this is one of my favourite parts of Christmas and I wouldn't be there to help, until my dad came up with an ingenious solution...

Blogmas Day Five - Christmas Market

Lincoln is famous for one thing at this time of year, and it's not the Steep Hill, it's the Christmas Market. I'd heard stories about it, even before I arrived here and finally got the opportunity to go with my family, and it didn't disappoint!

Blogmas Day Four - What's on my Christmas Tree?

This is my first Christmas as a student but this didn't stop my flatmates and I getting extremely hyped up for the festive season and buying a christmas tree and the trimmings to put in our flat. I mean it wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't dance around the Christmas tree, singing cheesy Christmas songs now would it?

Blogmas Day Three - Making Gingerbread Houses

On Christmas movies, they always seem to make gingerbread houses and they always look really cool and yummy. Well I have a confession... Until today I had never made a gingerbread house in my entire life! But all that changed when we spotted gingerbread house making kits in Morrison's and thought we'd give it a whirl...

Blogmas Day Two - Favourite Christmas Films

Who doesn't love Christmas films? The crazy plots, the awesome music and the fact that they are centered around the best (and most magical) time of the year. Not to mention the awesome all-star casts they drag in which helps to make things that little bit more special. With that in mind, here are my 5 favourite Christmas films

The First Day of Blogmas - The Christmas Tag

Hello!

Since it is December 1st, and therefore officially Christmas, I thought I would attempt to blog every day in the lead up to the big day and introduce for the first time on this blog, BLOGMAS! Get ready for a fun-filled month of all things Christmassy (because, let's face it, I am a giant child when it gets to this time of year) - I'm hoping to post recipies, tags and posts about my life as well as other festive things I think up at the time... So here is Blogmas day one, The Christmas Tag
