This year I’ve been really struggling to feel festive, usually come September I crack Elf out and half of my Christmas shopping is done, but not this year. This year I’m a last-minute-lil and have only bought a couple of my presents, it’s my first Christmas of being self-employed and I just have so much work to wrap up before I shut up shop for Xmas.
I’m working on a big project that I can finally reveal to you guys this week and it’s always that one last push of work at Christmas time until everything kicks off again in the new year, although blogging is 24/7 I know it won’t really be a proper break as such but one I’ll enjoy all the same. Last night I had the best night with my girls and documented it as it was the loveliest evening.
I spent the evening with my three best friends from school (we were a man down as there was one dying of a hangover in bed) but the four of us got together, opened our secret santa presents, laughed all night and really got into the festive spirit.
We all bought some snacky food round so we had dinner at the table whilst gossiping and giggling (standard!), accompanied by some
Throughout the evening we watch The Grinch and Elf – both are my all time favourite Christmas films so I was dead chuffed, we opened our Christmas presents and just generally had a wonderful evening feeling super festive! I know finally feel ready for Christmas and really excited to spend Christmas day with my friends and family!
Here are some snaps for the evening…
Everything you need for your ultimate Christmas girls night in;
– Some fab Soak and Sleep PJs (you’ll never take them off they are so comfy!).
– Christmas films! My favourites are Elf, The Holiday, The Grinch and Miracle on 34th Street.
– A couple of bottles of Echo Falls wine, we had the Fruit Fusions Passion Fruit & Peach and Strawberry and Lime – both were delicious and can be used to make cocktails, I’ve popped the recipes below (you can thank me later!)
– Your favourite girlfriends, because, let’s be honest – where would we be without them?! <3
We decided to drink our wine as it is as we all really loved the flavours but the new Fruit Fusions range from Echo Falls are great as they double up and can be used to create cocktails! So, if you and your girls are more of cocktail drinkers then why not try out these festive drinks this Christmas!…
