My December Bucketlist

YES! YES! YES! It's December and EVERYONE is excited for sparkles, celebrations and smiles! I always have so many things I want to do in the month of December because friends are home, people are off work and places have fun events to explore. With this in mind, I thought I would write a December Bucketlist and hopefully I will be able to complete it all by 2016. I will post pictures of every bucklist activity I complete on my Instagram aslater_90. Click HERE if you would like to follow in my December footsteps.   

1. Help Put The Christmas Tree Up - Almost every year I watch my Dad from the sofa put up the Christmas tree. This year I have promised him I will help. I might even go in the loft and get it down if hes lucky. 

2. Go Ice Skating - I haven't been ice skating for years and I always find it puts me in that Christmasy mood, even if I do fall over a million times. I asked my boyfriend James to go the other week, he didn't seem too keen but I'm sure with another try he will give in. Fingers crossed.

3. Fenwicks Window - If you live in the North East you will know exactly what this is. Fenwick's Window is an annual Christmas window display in the Northumberland Street frontage of Fenwick Newcastle. Fenwick's take a different theme each year and it is always amazing. Last year was Alice in Wonderland. I still don't know what this years is and I'm trying to keep it as a surprise till I see it. eeeeek! I'm such a little kid at heart. 

4. Christmas Market - I went to a Christmas Market at the weekend and I was highly disappointed so I'm going to try my hardest to find a good one. I just love looking at the handmade gifts, cakes and of course getting a German Sausage! Nothing better. 

5. Wrap My Presents - Every year I leave my wrapping to the very last minute so this year I am going to be extra organised. I'm going to make sure I have all my presents by the 20th and wrapped under the tree. 

6. Keep My Secret Santa Hush Hush - If you have read my blog recently you will know I do a Secret Santa every year with the girls and EVERY YEAR...and I mean EVERY year I always give in and tell someone who I have. This year I am going to try my hardest to keep it hush hush! 

7. Christmas Cake - I love making cakes even if my boyfriend does always take all the credit for them. This year I'm going to make a giant cupcake and decorate it all christmasyyyy! Oh and of course its got to be Chocolate.. MY FAV!

8. Christmas Movie Marathon - Nothing better than putting on some Pjs, getting some treats and sitting in front of the fire with friends/family/boyfriend and watching your favourite Christmas films. I have got to say Home Alone always puts me and my Dad in the best of moods. No matter how many times we watch it, we still find it hilarious. I do enjoy a bit of 'Elf' too.   

9. Make Room For New Things - Even though I have a second bedroom to put my clothes in, I still never have room for anything. Whoops! Christmas day will soon be here and I know I will struggle to find somewhere to put my new things so a clean out/ tidy is a MUST! Send them unwanted clothes to the charity shop. 

10. Visit Others- Sadly, I have a number of family members that have passed away through the years and I like to make sure I pay them a visit. At this time of year especially,just so they know I'm thinking of them and wishing they were still here. <3 

11. Gym - The dreaded gym. I have promised myself and the girls I will go to the gym more often this month even though is it freezing outside and its the last thing I want to do. I can't hide under them baggie jumpers forever!

12. Celebrate - I know I don't have much money at the moment but spending as much time with my friend/family and boyfriend is at the top of my list. I have been feeling a little down lately and what better way to make myself feel better than spending time with every I LOVE and celebrating this festival period. 

There you have it My December Bucketlist. I would LOVE to add London and Harry Potter World onto this list but I just don't think it will ever happen. HUMPH!
