A Collection of Christmas Songs


It’s getting closer and closer to Christmas!
I thought I would do a list of some favourite Christmas songs. When it comes to this season of life, I love the time with friends and family when you gather to make special memories and not just receive presents, but to give as well.

Christmas for me, is all about that – giving and holding onto special moments. Holding specially onto the fact that you get up on Christmas Day and are looking forward to the day for weeks or days (even months!) and just getting to that time where you have a traditional crossaints and jam for breakfast with a Royal Albert High Tea  and right after your heart is bursting to open up presents!!!!!!

My “Grown Up” Christmas List


Generally, every girl has a ‘wish list’ when it comes to Christmas. My current one is expanding, and I have been online more than I ever have been in my life!!! Even if it’s not on budget, I still am tempted to just browse, and add to a “WISH” list in my MS Word, so that I can refer to it when I am at home.

According to “The Age”, Australia is to spend 8.8 billion on Christmas presents this year!! With more than half of it spending on credit/store cards. I couldn’t believe the statistics! Now, that is why I got rid of my credit card. Been there, done that! I had one when I was in Melbourne and it was so easy to spend on things whenever you want, however you want. This year I decided not to go down that road, and try and save as much as I can to do the things I love and want in 2017, so I can pursue and follow my dreams.

So, here is my ‘grown up christmas list’ that will probably be on my list for the next year too!

Christmas Gift Ideas

I can not believe how CLOSE we are getting towards this Christmas. Christmas is a beautiful time of year, and I love that it is about love, giving and family. To me, they are the most important things in life, and when I give I find that I get blessed in return.

I’m a firm believer of giving, and this morning I was talking to a lady in a jewellery store, and she was telling me about the rapper, Akon had donated all of his billions of wealth to charity. Now that is what I call a GOOD man!!! I was overwhelmed by the amount of money he GAVE!!!! This is something to think about and ponder, and there are some gift giving ideas with Priceline!!!

Priceline has some top picks but I am going to share with you some of my favourites, and what I would like to buy for the New Year.

There are gift ideas for UNDER $10, $20 and $30!!!!

  1. There is a Versace Women’s Miniature Set 5 pack for $59.00 which is a highly sophisticated brand that any girl would love!!! It would look lovely displayed on a dressing table.

2. One of my favourite brands is Sukin, and there is a Sukin Gorgeous Getaways 250 mL Travel Pack for $19.99. It looks luxurious, and has a few products you can dabble with!!

3. Mineral Spa Mineral Spa Mini Foot Pack 2 pack consists of a Peppermint Leaf Foot Scrub and White Pumice Stone. This is a great gift idea if you’re looking for something to suit your budget as it is only $5!!!! And you can treat yourself, it is that CHEAP!!!!

4. The Nude By Nature Bronzed Beauty Gift Set 2 pack is a must have for this Summer!! If you want to get a tanned glow, and look pretty and bronzed for when you’re out at the beach. I love the brush as one side is for blush, and the other side is for contouring. It is only $39.95.

5. There is a range of Sanctuary Spa products from a lotion to scrub, body butter, and body moisture spray, but there is something called a Little Tin of Treats for only $14.99 which includes a Cleansing Burst Body Wash, White Lily Damask Rose Body Wash and Green Lemon & Orange Blossom Body Wash. This would be a luxurious gift! Also, try the Sanctuary Daily Spa Escape Fragrance Hot Sugar Scrub for a feeling of pampering which is only $11.99.

There is also a pack called “Tin of Good Intentions”, which is $34.99 which includes a Cleansing Burst Body Wash, Gentle Polish Body Scrub and Silky Smooth Body Lotion. This looks divine, and all these products go hand in hand.

6. Lastly, whether you choose this as a gift or for yourself I absolutely love this product Renewing Argan Oil of Moroccan Penetrating Oil which is a treatment for your hair. Argan oil protects from styling heat and UV damage and strengthens your hair. You save 25%, and is $18.74
