Today's post is all about Christmas traditions. Lovely, lovely Christmas traditions. As you may have guessed by my million blog posts this month, it's my favourite time of year and has been since I was a little chiddler. I've been trying to think about which little moments make me feel the most excited and festive in the lead up to Christmas; is it putting up my decorations and my tree up? Is it when I break and play Michael Buble's Christmas album in October (the less said about that the better)? There are just too many. What I really do love, though, is that first trip out to start looking for Christmas presents. Between spotting bits you know are going to put a big fat grin on people's faces to the Christmas lights in the streets around you, it gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling every year without fail. Michael Buble playing in my head every step of the way, of course.

This year me and my Mam headed through to Edinburger for some Christmas bits and left with an actual suitcase of stuff. HO ho holy shit, I know. I wore the best navy coat the world has seen (thank you, Sandro) and my trusty Zara scarf. It was surprisingly mild that day - I genuinely think it hit a tropical 14 degrees at one point - so I dared to get my ankles out and wore my new silky jumpsuit to make a very navy outfit.

Now in the spirit of all things Christmas, I've got a little giveaway for you! Because Christmas is all about bringing a little joy to others - and about Christmas chocolate, of course - I have a ha-uge Lindt hamper to give away to one lucky person. I know, my stomach just started rumbling too. All I would like you to do is let me know your favourite Christmas memory or tradition (go on, make me feel all fuzzy inside) along with a way I can contact you. E-mail address, twitter handle - you choose. Simples! Good luck to you all and, remember, sharing is caring... so if you want to send some of that hamper my way I won't say no.

In the meantime, if you're in need of some Christmas Inspiration, then make sure and check out the Lindt Christmas hub which is filled with festive tips as well as info on how you can help support the NSPCC through Lindt!
