Getting ready for the holidays

How are we storming through November already?  I feel like I have blinked and it's time to prepare for Christmas again. Not that I'm complaining!

I love nothing more than getting my home ready for the holiday season, while I don't fully decorate my home until December 1st, I start to filter out the autumn decor and bring in the winter stuff throughout November.

A great way to get in the Christmas spirit is by lighting some gorgeous winter inspired candles, I am a huge lover of candles and it's the first thing I add to my home to get me in the festive spirit. Currently I'm between two scents, which are cinnamon chai and the other is fresh pine. They smell soooo good.

I get so much of my Christmas decor from Homesence, we have a great one in Newcastle which I pop into on route home from my yoga training (probably more than I should admit). 

I got all our stockings from Homesence and almost all of our decor, apart from some pieces that have been handed down from family. It's a great one stop shop for unique, quality items plus they offer something for everyones taste and style. I love the place!

When it comes to decorating I have a few things on my check lists that are a must:

- A pretty wreath for my front door.
- Seasonal fragrances candles everywhere.
- A new decoration to add to the collection.
- Festive mugs for hot chocolate and spiced chai. Yum!

This year I am after a few extras to add to my Christmas home decor, I really fancy a garland to go across the arch in my kitchen, some festive hand towels and a little tree for the kids room. I have to admit I'm feeling extremely Christmasy this year!  

How do you decorate and prepare your home for the holidays?
