Three Things I’ll Be Doing This Christmas

Three Things I'll Be Doing This Christmas | A Girl & Grey | @agirlandgrey

’tis the season for festivities and fun, and maybe a little too many desserts. 

I think with the stress and craziness of the festive season, it can be easy to allow time to pass too quickly. Getting caught up with our endless to-do lists can take priority over simple things like enjoying a slow morning writing out Christmas cards and late nights spent next to the Christmas tree. 

Here are three things I’m making time for this Christmas as a way to make sure I enjoy every moment. I challenge you to create your own list too! Who doesn’t love a little festive bucket list?

1 | Bake some Christmas treats

I’ve got peppermint mocha donuts and salted caramel snickers cookies on my list… as well as a variation on one of last years recipes with a fun little southern hemisphere twist. What else should I make?

2 | Have a Home Alone marathon

Preferably with a bucket of warm, buttered popcorn and a litre of Diet Coke. I’m guessing a bag of m&m’s will make an appearance too, as well as my Christmas koala pjs!

3 | Take myself on a shopping date

I might be the only person that loves spending hours upon hours in a shopping centre come Christmas time, but there’s something so magical about it. The decorations, the excitement, and *all* of that glitter – nothing makes me as happy as taking myself out for the day and buying a little too many festive bits for my house. 

What are you getting up to this Christmas?
