4 films to get you feeling festive

A cozy movie marathon sounds perfect right now, doesn’t it?

Trust me, after watching just one of these movies, you’ll want to go out do your Christmas shopping, then go ice-skating with that special someone, then bake an entire gingerbread house from scratch, then maybe make a snowman – stick arms and all.

For those who need to switch on their festive mode, or for those who just love this time of year – here are just four of some of the best festive films for this wonderful time of the year.

ELF
A Christmas classic that no one can look past this season. It’s got iconic scenes, a bit of romance, a lot of comedy and that inspirational Christmas cheer. It’s everyone’s favorite Christmas movie!

FRED CLAUS
The ending is worth a watch of this movie. You won’t know whether to cry of joy or to let out an “AWWWW”.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
Who can say no to fetus Taylor Momson and the hilarity Jim Carrey? Because this movie has all of that, and more.

LOVE ACTUALLY
If you’re looking for an easy Christmas themed rom-com, this is your go-to. For realz though.

Extend that movie marathon. We’ve got more film suggestions!

NAIL DETAIL: Wreath nail art

Time to ease into that good good festive spirit!

What better way to start feeling them Christmassy vibes than a festive mani? New nails give us life and we want you to feel the same way.

Here’s how to achieve festive and fashionable nails for the weeks of December.

What You’ll Need:
– Emerald Green Nail Varnish
– A light colored Nail Varnish (your choice)
– Small Nail Art brush
– Clear Top Coat

On fresh nails, apply 2 coats of your lighter Nail Varnish.

Choose a nail that you would like to draw the nail detail on and have some Emerald Green Nail color on your Nail Art Brush.

Using your Nail Art brush, paint on small dots in the outline of a circle.

On every dot, draw on small diagonal flicks. Then keep building up on flicks and stop whenever you’re happy with how it looks.

Paint on your top coat and ta-da! Done!

WRAP QUEEN: Creative Ways To Wrap Presents

We’ll let you take a moment to get over the fact that it’s already December and once you’re ready, we’ve got some inspiring tips and tricks for you to try out this Christmas.

It’s all about Gift Wrap today. To some, it’s a painful chore, but for others it’s a way to show off their amazing attention to detail. But in a few minutes, you’re going to be so inspired that you’ll want to do your gift wrapping right now.

All sewed up. Out of tape? No problem. Get unique and machine sew your wrapping paper together.

White on white on white. Go all out on a white Christmas this year with white wrapping paper, white ribbon and top it all off with a white swing tag. Such a simple and clean look.

The rustic look. This involves elements like fabric instead of paper, jute string instead of ribbons and a small stem of leaves for that organic vibe. This is sure to be an eye-catcher!

Night sky inspired. It’s simple. Black paper and a metallic marker. The rest is up to you! Draw something festive on the paper or, write something sentimental.

Read all about it! This is perfect for those who love reading, whether that be newspapers, glossy magazines or books. This idea will save you heaps of moolah and it’s a thoughtful way to wrap a gift this holiday season!

Looking for more ideas? These posts will have what you need.
