it's that most wonderful time of the year ♥

I'm a big child at christmas. I'm one of those people that annoys everyone with their christmas spirit, and sits and watching the santa clause in plaid pjamas with a cup of hot chocolate.I love being festive and decorating everything to make it christmasy and fun! I'm lucky in that I have 3 brothers who still believe that santa is walking across the roof on christmas eve with his elves and reindeers delievering their prezzies.

I always decorate my room by putting a tree up and getting my christmas yankee candles (I'm currently in the process of doing this as I blog) but I thought I'd show you some of the cute decorations mum has put up around the house. 18 days till christmas, yay! My mum likes to decorate with all little handmade things that we've made or brought home over the years which makes me love it even more.

Does anyone else have any weird little decorations at Christmas time?
Stay safe everyone!♥
Much Love, Orla

FOTD- lazy sunday and festive spirt ♥

I'm a bit old fashioned in that I like to spend my sundays doing nothing, relaxing and spending time with family. That is of course if i'm off work and this weekend I was, which is why I am writing this blog now, two hours before my week of four nightshifts in a row start. The weekend off means I spend the week working, but hey ho! I spent the weekend getting festive, putting up the christmas tree with my mum and doing a little bit of christmas shopping. I'm going to put a tree up in my room this year, which I'll probably do a post on at the end of the week.

Anyways, here are a few pictures I took of our decorations which I'm super proud of. My mum loves putting little handmade decorations up to make them look personal, and I love seeing wee santas everywhere. I went to my boyfriends also and we went out for a meal, and here is the make-up I wore! Very casual and relaxed was what I was going for :)
