Remember the days when you might be waiting months for the next instalment of Five Things? A simpler time.
With Christmas coming pretty soon, I decided to make a festive edition of the series, with maybe a few additional categories added for that Christmas feel.
Five songs I’ve been listening to
David Bowie and Bing Crosby – Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth
Dustin the Turkey – Christmas Tree
Michael Bublè and Idina Menzel – Baby It’s Cold Outside
Britney Spears – My Only Wish This Year
Aled Jones – Walking In The Air
Five things I’d love for Christmas
> A Mayo GAA jersey. Myself and my little brother have gathered together a fine collection of GAA jerseys from across the country (and the world, we even have the New York strip) and I’ve had an eye on the Moysiders one for a few years. This year could be the year.
> Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette. I’ve got the first two, and I really like them both. I’ve heard, however, that the third palette is suited more to rosy skin tones. With cheeks like mine, I don’t think it’s hard to tell I fall straight into that category. I’ve got a dupe of it, but I think it would be nice to have the complete set.
> Some Benefit skincare products. I’ve recently finished up my night cream and I really need a new jar of it.
> A new coat. I don’t have a winter coat, with a hood, that isn’t grey. Considering a lot of my wardrobe is grey, it could be time for a new addition to my wardrobe. I’ve had my eye on some burgundy offerings from New Look, and I wouldn’t say no to some of the navy coats available in Penneys either.
> A Yankee Candle gift set. In the rare moments I get to lie in bed and relax, I love having a candle burning and an book open while I sip a cup of tea. There are so many Yankee Candle scents I love, it’s very hard for me to pick just one.
Five to watch this Christmas
Ok, I’m cheating a little. I’ve just put up a post on what films to watch, and there’s five of them there. So I’m going to use that as my five to watch here.
