8 THINGS WE ALL REALLY WANT THIS CHRISTMAS

Christmas is not long away now and I have seen so many gift guides, so I thought I had better join in on the fun, well kind of. Instead of your traditional wishlist full of perfumes and palettes, I am going to be listing a whole guide to things we all want, that money can't buy. It goes without saying at least one chocolate orange and handfuls of pigs in blankets have to make an appearance this Christmas, but Christmas is for making wishes come true right? So if at least half of these could come true, I will be a very happy Christmas elf this year...




#1 A LIE IN
I mean, if you're not a parent or a workaholic you probably get one of these at least once a week, however, considering I haven't had a lie in for around 5 years now, I think it had to be at the top of my list. If you have a children this will no doubt be one of the best things money can't buy this Christmas, imagine 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep... if only.

#2 DONALD TRUMP TO LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE & PLANET EARTH IN GENERAL
2017 has seen Donald Trump go from strength to strength to earn ultimate dickhead of our generation and I don't think anybody who is sane would disagree with that. I think we've all had a moment this year of disgust at his actions, words and just general existence and prayed that we could just strap him to a firework and send him into orbit. 

#3 INSTAGRAM TO STOP BEING AWFUL
If you work in the social media or influence industry, there's no doubt Instagram has been the bane of your profession this year. Bad engagement, shadow banning and general dis-functionality of the platform has sent everyone from bloggers to social media managers into despair. So what would be well nice for Christmas is Instagram allowing our glorious content the recognition it deserves.

#4 NO ARGUMENTS ON CHRISTMAS DAY
I don't know if it's because I am from a long line of firey women, or this happens in most households, but Christmas Day always seems to bring out the opinions and debates from family members, mostly ones that cause an argument after 6 glasses of wine and 400 after eights. Wouldn't it be lovely to manage a Christmas with peace and Pictionary. 

#5 SNOW
There has been one Christmas in my 25 years of existence that I remember it snowing on Christmas day, I was six and it was magical. It's the Christmas dream right? Everyone wants picturesque snow on Christmas day, and if you don't you're a Grinch. 

#6 FOR EVERYONE TO AGREE ON A FILM TO WATCH 

There's nothing worse on Christmas Day than wanting to watch Ratatouille but your mum wants to watch some 1950's Christmas Carol remake, and your nephew wants to watch Avengers. How nice would it be if we could agree on a film to watch on Christmas Day? Seriously wishful thinking.

#7 NO HANGOVERS
Nothing worse than taking it too far, as I always do, over Christmas and waking up with a horrific hangover. What I would really like for Christmas is the ability to drink three bottles of Prosecco without a headache the next day.  

#8 BEING SURROUNDED BY LOVED ONES OVER CHRISTMAS
Christmas is a time to share with your nearest and dearest, something that some people don't get the luxury of. We can really take for granted the people who are most important to us and although you should show them you care and appreciate them at all times, Christmas is a perfect time to make up for lost time. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post, what are you hoping for this Christmas? Leave me a comment below OR find me on social media!
