Advent 2015: Day 24 (Christmas Eve!)

Processed with Moldiv

Today’s advent calendars have very red products with a Morgan Taylor nail varnish in pretty a Woman which is a nice classic creme finish red that is a great colour for around Christmas. I like wearing red creme finish varnishes with a bit of glitter on the tips of my nails, especially one with bits of white alongside holographic glitters as a sort of snow effect. The candle in the Yankee Candle advent calendar is a votive, a larger candle that needs to be out into a votive holder or glass as it doesn’t have a plastic or glass container as part of the candle like their others do. This is in a new scent as well, a very appropriate Christmas Eve which is supposed to be a fruity one and I think I get that, it’s not overly Christmassy so might work the rest of the year too.

Merry Christmas!

Or whatever festival you celebrate, or if you don’t celebrate anything then I hope you have a happy December. I’m surprised it’s only the last few days here it’s been cold enough to feel like winter, hopefully the weather wherever you are is ok and anyone with bad weather stays safe.

A bit of a different post for me but I’ve been doing festive things all today and seen all these posts up so thought I’d do some photos of our decorations, they’re just phone photos so I hope they’re good enough quality. 🙂 it feels like this is the first time in a couple of months that I’m actually having the time and energy to read blogs, my body has not been cooperating recently so sorry I’ve sort of lost contact with anyone.

That’s one thing I love about Christmas, talking to people you don’t contact often, getting cards and catching up whether it’s friends or family, real life contacts or online. So I hope you’re all having a good festive season and managing to relax a bit.
