One of the things I love about Christmas time is all the amazing Christmas movies (some of which, are my favourite films all year round). They are so fun, festive and a lovely thing to watch with a group of friends or your family.

My top 6 Christmas movies are:

It's a Wonderful Life

Love Actually

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The Holiday

The Polar Express

The Family Man

DIY Bon Bons | BLOGMAS Day 14

Had a lovely day today with my friend Brooke, from Melbourne, who is staying with me for a few days. We spent all morning chatting and then went shopping to an outlet centre. Afterwards we went for a walk and had dinner. Very excited to be meeting two bloggers tomorrow for a picnic! Keep an eye on this space to see pictures.

So for today's post, I'm showing you how to make your own bon bons. These are lovely to put on the table for Christmas lunch/ dinner and because you are making them yourself, they can be personalised for each person.

Washi tape, wrapping paper or anything to decorate your bon bons
Tissue paper to cut out crown
Jokes/ quotes on pieces of paper
Small items to place inside
White card (I bought mine pre-cut at a craft store)
Brown strips to make the bon bon pop (from a craft store)

Close the bon bon at one end and then place the crown, quote + products inside the open end. The card I bought already had the diamonds cut out to make the folding a little bit easier, however you can just gather the paper together and tie a ribbon around to hold it in place.

Gift Guide | BLOGMAS Day 13

Christmas is fast approaching and for some, choosing the perfect present can be quite challenging. I have put together some ideas of presents (mainly for teen girls) to make choosing Christmas gifts a little bit easier.

 I only recently discovered Bando but instantly fell in love with their colourful, everyday items such as phone cases, chargers, stationary and drink holders. You are guaranteed to find at least one item that the person you are buying for will love!

Lush products are perfect for those who are constantly busy, as they help you to relax and pamper yourself. If you don't want to choose out individual products, Lush has some fantastic gift boxes ranging from $7.50 - $275.

 I feel like not many people give pyjamas as Christmas presents, however it is something that everyone wears and you can find a colour + print that represents the person you are buying for. The pyjamas in the picture above are all from Boohoo as I think they have some gorgeous prints this season.

 Typo is another one of those stores where there really is something for everyone. Stationary is also a great gift for girls at school/ uni because who doesn't want gorgeous notebooks and pens?

 Aside from clothing, Cotton On has some trendy items which are great for stocking fillers.

  Candles or reed diffusers create a relaxing atmosphere so great for those at school/ uni.

 Clothing can be hard to buy if you don't know a person's size/ taste in clothing - however it is great for people you know well. If you are worried that you have bought the wrong size - most stores do gift receipts so that the person can change it for another size/ outfit. The colourful printed outfits above are from Harvest Lane which is quite pricey however perfect for someone special who loves these sort of quirky, tribal prints.

2016 is coming up fast (which is a bit scary) meaning a planner is the perfect gift for those who love to plan, organise and make lists (like me). The one above is from Kikki K, however you can buy 2016 planners from lots of different shops. 

Hopefully this gives you some ideas for Christmas gifts.
If you have any other ideas, please comment them below.

Hope you had a lovely week,

It's half way through December already which means we are half way through BLOGMAS! You all seem to have been enjoying the videos I've been uploading so I have another one today featuring Elle, Ole (my cousin) and Zo. Unfortunately the camera died half-way through so we filmed the rest on my iPhone (hence the poor quality). 

I hope you have a good laugh at our unique makeup skills and a wonderful weekend.

As I was looking through my photos and sorting them into folders I came across this outfit that I shot last holidays in Hamilton Island. I can't remember ever wearing this dress in a blog post before which is surprising since I wear it ALL the time. I'm frequently asked by friends if I own any other clothing... :p Nevertheless it's perfect for every occasion whether it's thrown over swimmers for the beach, or paired with a denim jacket and boots for a dinner. 

Something super exciting happening next Tuesday which involved three very talented bloggers!

Have a lovely weekend,

Summer Lovin' | BLOGMAS Day 10



Wearing Supre vest, top and shorts

This is the final outfit I shot with the talented Gabi Mulder! You can see the other shoots I did with her here, here, here, here & here. I hope you loved all the photos as much as I did. The photos above were taken in Winter, hence why I'm wearing a slightly warmer outfit. Although, it can still be worn on those cooler days in Summer.

It's been a busy, but amazing week so far. Lots of blogging, filming, catching up with friends, swimming, spending time with family, water slide park, babysitting, sleepovers and shopping. Can't believe I've gotten all of my blog posts up for BLOGMAS on time (some days only just in time)... I hope you've been enjoying them and you aren't sick of me yet!

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

DIY Confetti Bows | BLOGMAS Day 7


It wasn't until yesterday that I discovered that my last DIY blog post was in February - so of course I went and shot several crafty posts. These sequin bows are the perfect topper for a Christmas present and add an element of fun to it

You will need:
❄ Clear flat polybags – I used 3 inch x 5 inch
❄ Sequins
❄ Washi tape


Start by filling your polybag with as many or as little sequins as you would like.
 

Add a strip of washi tape to the closed end of your bag. 


Seal the open end with another folded over strip of washi tape.
  

To turn it into a bow, hold the centre and shake the confetti towards the two ends. You want there to be about the same amount of sequins on each side. Pinch the centre of the bag and wrap a strip of washi tape around the centre of the bow. 


Using double sided tape or blue tack, stick on top of your wrapped presents OR add string and hang to your Christmas tree as an ornament. 

If you do make these, I'd love to see! Tag me on Instagram @milkywayblog. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Monday!

Daydream | BLOGMAS Day 5



 




So I am lying in bed, it's currently 10.04pm and the video I am trying to upload to YouTube says it's going to take 534 minutes... Unfortunately this means you will all have to wait another day until you can see my video but I have a blog post in the mean time.

It's been a week of Summer and this outfit has been worn on repeat as it's super comfortable! I picked up the shorts + singlet from a market around a month ago but I can't remember the name of the stall. I've always found markets to have some lovely items that can be quite a bit cheaper than retail stores. If any of you live/ know of any markets in Sydney that you recommend I'd love if you could leave them in the comments section below and I'll try and check them out these holidays.

 I hope you have all been enjoying December so far.

See you tomorrow,
G x
