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.
