hello beauties, I'm here today again with a festive article because "it's the most wonderful time of the year" and I'm going to share with you the things that make me feel the Christmas spirit, hope you get inspired ♡

1) Decoration

in my opinion, decoration is the most important thing to get someone in the Christmas mood. I decorate a small Christmas tree in my bedroom, I use Christmas toys around the room, candles and of course fairy lights (my favorite).

2) Hot drinks

I'm a coffee person, so I drink a lot of hot coffee, Cappuccino especially. However, tea or hot chocolate with marshmallows is also a good idea.

5) The weather

first of all I have to admit that people who can experience "white Christmas" are so lucky. Secondly, as you propably know, here in Greece it's sunny like 360 days a year so the olny thing that gets me in the mood is the low temperature and the smell of the fireplaces in the atmosphere, so don't you worry if the sky does not reminds of Christmas, you can feel the "spirit" even in the most sunny countries!

6) Festive clothes

I like wearing comfy clothes like oversized hoodies or sweaters. However, you can see me around the house wearing festive pjs and Christmas socks.

7) Christmas candies

I usually make some traditional Greek candies like "melomakarona" and "kourabiedes" (1 and 2 picture) however, this year I will try to make some cupcakes and some biscuits. You can make what you wish but the key is to decorate each creation in Christmas way.

8) Presents

in my opinion, it's better to make a list of people you want to give a present this year and start shopping your presents. You can start from the beginning of the month and you will have plenty of time to find the perfect present for your loved ones.

9) Lists

make a list of the things you want to do before the year ends and always remember it's never too late!

and last but not least,

10) Goals

setting goals (for the upcomming year) is one of my favorite things in life. Create your bucket list, work on it but always remember to remain silent ;)
