Countdown to Christmas

It's  the end of November and with this Christmas is just around the corner. I'm in my mid twenties and I am still really excited this time of the year. In case you need some pick me ups, here's a little advent calendar of activities to get you in the mood for Christmas:

1. Start using Christmas products. I'm gonna start by using my Snow Fairy and Santa's Belly everyday till Christmas. 

2. Compile a Christmas playlist, and listen to them. Repeat as often as necessary 

3. Visit a Christmas market. It's harder to find such things in Asia but luckily these few years has seen a boom in these. 

4. Put up decorations and tree (if you haven't already) 

5. Drink something Christmas themed. My go to is always Toffee Nut Latte 

6. Cozy up and read a Christmas themed book. This year I'm reading A Gift From Tiffany's

7. Pick out your holiday outfits. It's never to early to plan out possible outfits, plus there's still time to add missing pieces to complete the look 

8. Wrap your Christmas gifts. 

9. Bake a batch of Christmas themed cookies

10. Be charitable and give back anyway possible. Volunteer your time, donate in cash or kind, anything to make someone or our furry friends' holidays better

11. Write out Christmas Cards. Something I'm really trying to do this year instead of the emails and Whatsapp messages. 

12. Go around town and look at the Christmas decorations 

13. Plan a gift exchange with friends

14. Make a must watch Christmas movie list and start watching one each night. 

15. DIY a Christmas survival kit 

16. If you haven't already, now might be a good time to buy your presents or maybe get yourself a little something 

17. Learn about how people celebrate Christmas around the world

18. Do some colouring. Adult colouring books are a thing right now and from the looks of it Johanna Bastford might be releasing a special Christmas colouring sheet

19. Come up with a list of things which you are thankful for during the past year

20. Start planning your holiday Makeup and hair 

21. Plan your Christmas menu and get shopping

22. If you have kids, make or act out the Nativity scene

23. Put on some festive PJs and curl up with a notebook and drink. It's never too early to start on the resolution 

24. Dress up, celebrate, kiss under the mostly, have fun and let loose, it's Christmas Eve
