Only a few more sleeps til the big day chums and the excitement is well and truly building… cheesy Christmas tunes, cupboards packed with goodies and remnants of glitter scattered everywhere from sparkly wrapping paper. However no matter how old I get there’s always something truly special about the atmosphere of Christmas Eve, hence why I look forward to it so much. It’s that electrical charge of childhood excitement that leaves us full to the brim of holiday hope and cheer. I love it! Yet in the midst of all the extra energy I seem to hit a point where I need to slow down and savour the moment. So to help relax and get my festive feelings in order here’s a few of the little treats and essentials I intend on looking forward too on one of the most magical nights of the year…
Whilst everyone else is busy with last minute wrapping and preparations I find it the perfect opportunity to catch my breath for an hour after a busy few weeks preparing for Santa’s visit, not to mention the wave of jolly relatives that will descend upon me for plates full of turkey and stuffing the following day. Taking that little breather the night before helps to recharge my batteries and leaves me feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to party!

Most of you know only too well that I have a slight obsession for candles any time of the year but when it’s Christmas and all those gorgeous cinnamon scents hit our high street I’m in a festive frenzy loading my shopping basket full of yummy yuletide wafts… and this week is no exception as I’ll be taking a trip to my local Yankee Candle store to pick up a their amazing Christmas Eve candle *swoon* Have you smelt it yet? It is divine! What better way is there to create an authentic scent-sational ambience?
Surely it’s a mandatory requirement that everyone should be slipping into a fresh new pair of cosy pj’s on Christmas Eve? There is no better feeling after your little pamper session than snuggling up in a cosy pair of cute pyjamas and toasty slipper socks! I found this cute pair of Christmas Owl pj’s whilst browsing through the House Of Fraser website. Aren’t they just jolly gorgeous?
I could literally pick a dozen of my favourites and still not be done, however seeing as our little girl is always tickled with Elf I’ll have to recommend it on Emma’s behalf! Honestly, this fun Christmas film has adults & kids tee-heeing with laughter at the awesome Will Ferral who plays an Elf trying to make his way in the big city… if you haven’t watched it make it top of your movie play list! If you’ve any great recommendations of your own please feel free to let me know in the comments below 🙂
I don’t believe it’s officially Christmas Eve in Confetti & Curves HQ unless you’re holding a huge cup of hot chocolate with marsh mallows and whipped cream on top. Okay, so it’s not going to do the waistline any favours but who gives a toot? Tis the season to relish in a few extra treats including popcorn, gingerbread men and yummy bowls of little savoury tasties. You can tell what the New Years Resolution’s going to be this year again right? *rolls eyes*
Ps: Pop a little peppermint candy in your hot chocolate to give it a mild minty taste or to really warm the senses a dash of Bailies Irish Cream… it’s too yum for words!
