blogmas day seven ... my favourite christmas movies

I'm a Christmas movie tragic. My favourite kind are the Hallmark ones - you know those terrible, no plot, soppy romance ones? Anyone with me?

I've compiled a list of my favourites for everyone following along.

Romance: The Holiday and Love Actually. My two all time favourite Christmas romances. Nothing tops these movies - I watch them every year without fail and find myself laughing and crying all over again.

Classics: Elf, Home Alone and The Santa Clause. More fail safe, fun movies for the whole family. My husban actually doesn't mind these movies so we usually watch them together either on Christmas Eve or sometime in the week before Christmas.

Netflix: Merry Kissmas, A Christmas Prince and A Wish for Christmas. Don't expect anything more than some light entertainment and a bit of festive cheer out of these ;)

Free to Air TV: There is also a huge range of free Christmas romances available to stream online at Seven Plus. Or if you are home, you can also watch the daily Christmas movie at 12pm on Ch7.

blogmas day six ... 'tis the season

'tis the season to be kind
'tis the season to love one another
'tis the season to see good in everyone
'tis the season to lend a hand
'tis the season to be selfless
'tis the season to give 

Just a little reminder that we should always remember the true meaning of Christmas - it can be so easy to get caught up in the holiday festivities and forget what this time of year is truly about.

blogmas day five ... stocking fillers for babies and toddlers

I know most of you probably have your Christmas shopping well and truly finished by now (or at least underway) but if you are still searching for some stocking fillers then I have gathered a few fun ideas for you. Most of these ideas would suit babies aged 6-24 months.

All of the stocking stuffers I have picked out are under $10 and will really help to fill up those huge Santa sacks that we all have these days without breaking the bank!

Top row L-R: drink bottle from Cotton On Kids ($5), bubble bath from Target in store only ($10), bath blocks from Big W ($10)
Middle row L-R: scented play dough from Tinitrader ($8.95), washable paint from Spotlight ($7.69), blow up pool from Kmart ($5)
Bottom row L-R: character bouncy ball from Kmart ($5), beach set from Kmart ($4), bubble wand from Kmart (50c)

I would love to hear your stocking stuffer ideas ... the smaller presents can sometimes be the hardest!
