Countdown to Christmas: Week Eight - 5 Favourite Types of Decoration!

Hey guys! This week for Countdown to Christmas I still don't have a review (I'm sorry! I've barely had time to read at all this week! *SAD FACE*) so instead, as I went decoration shopping this morning, I'm going to share with you my five favourite types of decorations! Yay! Enjoy!

1) TINSEL!


If you saw my post on Twitter this morning, picture above, you'll have seen how much I love tinsel. Well, the picture's right there, you can see how happy I look. Basically I adore tinsel. I'm not 100% sure why, if I'm honest, it's just always been a love of mine when it comes to Christmas. Maybe it's because it's so fun, or because it's so colourful, I'm not sure. I just love it. So yeah, TINSEL! :D

2) Cute things!


I'm also a sucker for cute things. Is it relevant? Is it necessary? Does it even have anything to do with Christmas? Those things matter little. If it's cute and it will either go on my tree or stand somewhere and look pretty, or if it is meant to be cuddled, I will basically buy it. No lie. Cute things are my weakness. See above - New Bents bear.

3) Lights!


I absolutely adore lights at Christmas. Outside lights! Tree lights! LED lights on my bookcase! Lights around my books! LIGHTS EVERYWHERE! They're just pretty, especially when multi coloured or outside in the dark.

4) Santas

Anything depicting Santa is also my jam. We have two fairly large Santas that sit in our living room each year and I love them. We have a Santa on our tree aptly named Gandalf (Blue and White with a lamp-post - I know Dumbledore probably would have been better but yeah, he's Gandalf the Blue). Santa Claus is just ace!

5) The Tree! Trees everywhere!
Paperchase 1ft tree! :D
The best thing about Christmas decorating is of course the tree. But I'll take extra trees too. I cannot wait to get our real tree once more, but in the meantime I've ordered the above from Paperchase to sit in my room. It's only 1 foot, but come on! IT'S MULTICOLOURED!

Basically I love Christmas and I love decorating!
