It’s December! We noted last month that November often feels like an awkward month spent in agonising wait until December, Christmas and the opportunity to get all properly festive arrives. Well that time is now! While you’ve been busy finishing up (or just starting!) your Christmas shopping and getting your trees looking gorgeous and sparkly, we’ve put together this little guide to some of our favourite December fragrances.
It’s official, Christmas is on. We know, we know, it seems to begin earlier and earlier each year, but it really is well and truly on now. Don’t believe us? Just glance out of your window and gaze in wonderment at the Christmas lights which have popped up on the high street. When were they put up? No one knows. They simply appear each year. Take a look at the shops, too. They’re filling! Christmas shoppers, pop-up Christmas sections, they’re all there. This divides the nation into two sides. There’s the first, those who roll their eyes and point out that “bonfire night is barely over”, and the second, who instinctively break into a chorus of “I don’t want a lot for Christmas…” at the first sight of a bauble.
It’s official, we’re in the fiery depths of autumn, and from the looks of things, there’s no going back anytime soon. The wind’s blowing, the leaves are golden, suddenly an umbrella has become something we can’t leave the house without “just in case”, but it’s time to embrace it! That’s right, we’re immersing ourselves in all things autumn, and do you know what? It’s not all that bad! Snuggly blankets, all the reality TV you could possibly watch, and even better – the perfect excuse to get crafty! With Halloween just around the corner, there are plenty of little ways to prep your home for the season!
