Holiday Movies

Christmas might be gone for this year, but that doesn't mean I’m ready to let go of my holiday spirit just yet. So, to stay festive, there is nothing better than spending a cozy day in, watching Christmas/holiday movies whilst everyone is braving the crowds on Boxing Day.

Below you can find my list of favorite holiday movies along with links to all the trailers. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that you will get the chance to unwind and recharge your batteries before the New Year.

Despicable Me

Today is an animated movie kind of day, so I thought I’d talk to you about Despicable Me, on the off chance you’ve never seen it. This is probably one of the funniest movies I’ve watched in years and it’s something both kids and grown-ups can enjoy.

To be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first and assumed it’d be boring, but no! I was great fun and the second one, Despicable Me 2, was actually as good if not better than the first one (when does that actually happen!?).

I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a way to unwind after your exams or if you are just looking for a nice cozy weekend in activity.  

You can find them on iTunes, Amazon (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2) as well as in any other store that sells DVDs. I’ve also included the trailers of both movies below so you can have a look.

 P.S. I can’t wait for the Minions movie: trailer

The Marks and Spencer Downton Abbey Collection

With the holidays just around the corner, I thought I should dedicate today’s post to great affordable gift ideas. In my opinion, the Marks and Spencer Downton Abbey bath and body collection would make a great gift for any fan of the show but also for anyone that likes a little pampering session.

The collection is of full of beautifully packaged gift sets with everything from soaps to hand creams and luxurious bath products. So far, I've tried the body lotion and the hand cream, both feel very moisturizing and the light floral scent is very pleasant. I will try to post more detailed reviews of all the products, but I think they would make pretty foolproof gifts or stocking stuffers.

They're currently on sale for 50% off, making most of the sets less than £10. Below are the links to the ones still available on the Marks and Spencer’s website, but I would recommend going to the store for more options (the gorgeous bath elixir glass bottle is to die for).
