a few of my festive favourites

Can you believe tomorrow is the 1st of December! This year has flown by, and I am so so ready to get into the festive mood. Which is exactly what Garlok and I did on Saturday when went and watched a Christmas film at the Backyard Cinema in London. There was mince pies, Christmas cocktails and a whole lot of other festivities which got me thinking about some of my favourite things that I love throughout Christmas. And today I thought I'd share them with you.

Christmas Markets

I'm a total sucker for a Christmas market, I love looking at all the pretty shiny things on the different stands and getting churros and mulled wine with friends and family. Christmas is not Christmas without a Christmas market or two, I've listed some of my favourites below:

- Tate Modern German Market

- Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

- Southbank Centre Winter Market

I also really want to head to Greenwich peninsula to visit their new Designer-maker Christmas market and enchanted forest, it sounds amazing! (Check it out here)

Nights in

You just cannot beat a night in when it's rainy and cold outside and you're all snuggled up in knitwear, cosy blankets and a hot water bottle watching your favourite TV programme/film. Have a bath just before getting into your snuggly spot and that is basically every Friday night for me! I thought I'd share with you what we're watching on Netflix/in general, please leave suggestions of other series to watch in the comments as we are always looking for new things to watch!

- Lost

- Mr Selfridge

- Gilmore Girls

- The Crown

I'm also really into buying homeware/furnishings at the moment and have me loving some of these throws/blankets - they just look so perfect for snuggling in:

Tartan Checked fleece Throw // Marks and Spencers

Woven Pom Pom Throw // Next

Cream Faux Fur Throw // Urban Outfitters

Festive Drinks

Finally, I love it when everything becomes festive related, so yes I am one of those girls who gets a PSL when Autumn kicks in and yes I do try everything on Starbucks festive menu. Sorry not sorry! I also am loving cocktails recently and definitely want to try making my own festive drinks at home this year!

Wow someone now needs to ban me from saying festive and Christmas for the next week! I hope you've enjoyed this post and are all looking forward to opening your advent calendars tomorrow, I have a tea one and am so excited to start drinking all that tea!!! I'll keep you posted on my instagram stories @elearose_
