A Merry Diva Christmas!


Hi Divas!
It is the most wonderful time of the year indeed. I love Christmas and all the good vibes and festive cheer it brings. This year my family and I are very prepared for the upcoming day. We have done all our Christmas cleaning, hung up new golden curtains, finished all our crazy Christmas shopping and decorated the house. The only thing left to do is cook up a storm on Christmas Eve. In this blog post I decided to do a post on my top 5 favourite things for Christmas this year. And if you are wondering whether I was naughty or nice in 2016, then keeping on reading below.... ;-)



1. Favourite Christmas Decorations

To start off, my favourite Christmas decoration for 2016 it would have to be Christmas cards. Thanks to technology, no one ever really gives a written card any more. We are usually too lazy to write or take a trip to the post office and end up sending emails and social messages instead. Christmas cards are always so personal and heartwarming. You take your time choosing the perfect one and write a heartfelt message inside. I love that about Christmas time because we go back to being sincere and thoughtful. Most Christmas cards are so adorable and beautiful. They really brighten up a room. When you look at it, you are reminded of the lovely person who took the time to give it to you.


2. Favourite Christmas Beauty Products

 I love getting all glammed up on Christmas day! I usually start with a gorgeous smelling body wash and lotion so the scent lingers on. I love the Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar range. It smells like Christmas indeed. For my face I love to wear my absolute favourite makeup to make me feel special. This year I will wear my number one foundation right now which is Too Faced Born This Way. For the eyes I will use the pretty Too Faced Bon Bons palette for some sparkle and shimmer. On my cheeks I will be warming them up with my Too Faced Sweethearts Peach Beach blush. I love wearing bright red lipsticks on Christmas day. My most loved is the Etude House Etoinette red lipstick. To top it off I will be spritzing the sultry Victoria's Secret Angel Gold fragrance all over my neck and decollete.


3. Favourite Christmas Gift Collections
Every year The Body Shop always steals my heart when it comes to Christmas collections. I usually end up getting everything in every scent. This year was no exception. Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple all come in body washes, body butters, hand creams, candles and more. My favourite scent for 2016 is Spiced Apple. This smells just like Christmas too. It is so divine and heart warming. The Body Shop rocks!!!


4. Favourite Christmas Treats
 My favourite treats for 2016 would have to be chocolates! From the gorgeous and cute packaging to the different mouth watering flavours and caramel or nougat centres. They make excellent Christmas gifts for loved ones, great for Secret Santa games and just pure indulgence to eat on your own. Big Yessss! ;-)


5. Favourite Christmas Music
 Christmas music always reminds me of my late grandfather because he had a Nat King Cole carols tape (back in the day when we still had cassette tapes) that he would play and sing along with. That memory will always be a favourite of mine. Like her father, my mom adores Christmas carols too. We play an array of different Christmas songs in our house. We love rocking to Elvis, feel playful with Bing Crosby, get all cozy with Buble and feel sentimental and blessed with Il Divo. My most loved Christmas song is O holy Night.


6. Was I NAUGHTY Or Nice This Year?
 I was plain blank NAUGHTY! LOL ;-D


*****
I want to wish you all a blessed and wonderful Christmas and Festive Season. Thank you so much for supporting me and being true Divas this year! I love you lots. Let me know below what some of your favourite Christmas things are and if you were Naughty or Nice this year? ;-)

Love this post Desle!! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas too. You look beautiful in your Santa hat. I think I was naughty too this year, lol. My favourite Christmas CD is definitely Mariah Carey. I play it on repeat. I loved the Essence Advent Calendar box this year as my favourite collection. :-)
