[Some products were gifted to me as PR samples – these have been marked with an '*']

Christmas is only a matter of weeks away, and if I'm honest, this year has been the most organised I've ever been. Ever. I had most of my Christmas presents bought by the end of August, which I guess isn't a hard feat considering I have a tiny family that really only comprises of my mum and cat. But either way, I like to think of myself as pretty prepared and organised... I am a Virgo after all.

Christmas is officially within sight, and with that, comes the excitement for the run up to the most wonderful time of the year. And if you're anything like me, you probably adore the run up to Christmas more than the day itself, and this is exactly why it's paramount to make sure you make the run up incredibly magical and special. 

[ad-pr visit – I was gifted the Simply Windsor Afternoon Tour trip by Golden Tours]

As a huge fan of the Royal Family, when I got offered the opportunity to go to Windsor Castle on an afternoon coach trip, I just couldn't pass. I had always wanted to visit Windsor – both the town and the castle – so it was truly a dream to travel from London with Golden Tours.

I'm just a tad older than Taylor Swift was when she had just released her 1989 album for the first time back in 2014, and now I'm 26 and vowing to live my best 1989 era as she releases her iconic Taylor's Version of the hit record. 

Okay, so there's more than one person I'm hung up on... kinda. Three to be precise. But why on earth am I still hung up on this one person that I couldn't even break up with, nor could they with me? Because after all, we were never anything to each other, and as Andi sings, "if you never had him you can't break up".
