it's beginning to look a lot like christmas...

This is it, the countdown has started until Christmas and I am impatiently waiting until this evening to open the first little door of my advent calendar. 

The streets are twinkling with fairy lights and the shops are showing off their best, yummiest treats. Oh my, I just love this time of the year!

For now I am buried in work but I keep my chin up by enjoying all the seasonal treats in my free time: christmas music, tea, films, shopping, hot cider, mince pies and so on.

This weekend is going to be extra special. Since Dan and I won't be celebrating Christmas together (sad face), we decided to have a little Christmas themed weekend (in between my morning and before-bed revisions!). We will decorate the house with a tree, fairy lights and garlands, go to Disneyland, bake some orange and chocolate chip shortbreads and have a fancy dinner at L'Escargot, the best restaurant to get snails. I can't wait!

I've already written my wish-list to Santa (obviously!) and almost finished my Christmas shopping. There a few other things that I'd like to do within the next few weeks:
. finish writing my Christmas cards and send them
. go to Place Vendôme and admire the pretty decorations and trees
. make some mulled wine
. organise a cosy Christmas goûter with my uni friends (preferably after an exam or a very hard class, for extra cosiness - or hygge)
. find some good seasonal books to relax
. think about two delicious menus for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
. make a garland with stars, some Christmas crackers (if I manage to find some cracker snaps) and, if I feel super motivated and if I find time, make a dried orange garland like this one

Also if you have any seasonal book and film recommendations please go ahead and tell me!
What are you plans for December?
