I think that I have to be one of the most festive people that I know. I watch Christmas films on repeat (the cheesier the better!), by mid November the Christmas songs are playing loud and proud, and as soon as December hits, the Christmas jumpers come out! My house gets turned into a mini winter wonderland, and make everything as festive as I can. Yes, I was that loser at school who had red and green bands on their braces… it seemed like a good idea at the time! I love getting the sparkles out, and adding that festive touch to everything that I possibly can, especially my nails! If there’s glitter involved than I’m normally a massive fan. In my opinion, everything’s better when it sparkles, and Christmas gives me the perfect opportunity to do just that.
I have a definite love hate relationship with autumn. I love the colours, the warming comfort food, the bright crisp mornings and the excuse to cuddle up in big jumpers. Of course there’s also the scenery, nature is always just so pretty at this time of year. Everything seems so fresh and new, and that’s one part that I really love. But, I am not a fan of the cold… I absolutely hate feeling cold. I may love my jumpers, but I think that I might just love shorts and the warm sun a little bit more! I also dislike the feeling of wearing so many layers you can hardly move, and feeling like I only see darkness. But, I’m on the way to Christmas, so how can I complain?
One of my favourite things about the change in seasons has to be the change in colours. The bright, colourful pastels are gone, and are instead replaced with warming, dark tones. Browns, oranges and nudes, and of course there’s always touch of sparkle involved!
