If there is one thing in this world that I absolutely love, under any circumstances,  is snow. There is something about seeing houses, trees, roads and quite literally anything covered in powdered sugar looking snow. The crips air, the children (and not so children) making snowmen and the softens and crunchiness of every step you take. It is the literal description of my perfect day. 

Being born in Spain and living in London, I don't really get to see snow very often (which is probably a contributing factor to why I love it so much). So whenever I get the chance, I wrap up in my warmest clothes and run out the door camera in hand, ready to document that historic moment. 

Last Sunday I was pleasantly awaken at 7:30AM by the sound of what I thought was rain... until I looked out the window, and saw the white flakes flying around the sky. I was so happy and excited I was not able to go back to sleep. As the hours passed by it kept snowing more and more, and soon the roads and the roofs started to look a bit white and then they were completely covered. Everything was white. 

Naturally, I braced the cold and wandered around my neighbourhood before most people had the change to leave their homes and ruin the perfectly white and soft snow.

Guys, I can not actually believe it is practically Christmas. Where has time gone! 

If you are a very organised person you probably have all your Christmas presents sorted by now. However, if you are a regular person you are probably panicking because you have a total of zero presents wrapped and ready to be given. 

Well, I am here to save the day. 

What is one thing that everyone owns? A phone. I do not think I can name a single person who does not own one, and every phone needs a case. Whether that is to protect it or to add a personal touch. Everyone will be happy to receive an extra phone case, specially if it is tailored to them by adding their initials, or simply by using a design that they particularly love. It is one of those things that no one really needs but everyone is happy to receive. 

CaseApp offers high-quality fully customisable phone cases. They have two models, a more protective one and a simpler, sleeker one. Regardless of which one you use, you can decide that you want your case to look like. Upload your favourite design (I usually get mine from Pinterest!), make sure it is high-res enough, add any text you want and choose what finish you want. Then sit down, breath and relax. Your perfect present is on its way to you. 

I recently ordered two cases from them. Both of which are very out of my comfort zone (which only comprises blacks and greys) as are bright red and pink. The reason why I chose such colourful designs is because 1) one of these cases is a present 2) to be honest, I got a bit bored of my old plain black case. 

I am so so so happy with what I got, they both look incredible and are such good quality! I chose the matte finish and I am so glad I did, I feel like glossy never looks as nice. They could easily be designer phone cases if you added Karl Lagerfeld in gold at the bottom. 

As I said before, one of them is meant to be a gift, but I am still deciding which one that is as I love them both so much I just want to keep them for myself! If you want to get them before Christmas make sure to order them NOW!!

Oh wait, one last thing... I have a discount code for you! Use the code ARIADNA20 when you check out to get 20% off your order!

I have probably said that a hundred times but I absolutely love Christmas. It is by far my favourite time of the year, I look forward to it 364 days a year (everyday except Christmas day...). I never spend the holiday at my house in London though, as I usually go back to my parents' house, so I don't like to splurge on loads of Christmas decorations. 

Nevertheless, I still like to make my bedroom somewhat festive by adding a few bits and bobs. It changes every year, sometimes I go a bit more DIY and some years I just buy the entire Anthropologie collection because...why not. 

The best item (or items) to buy for the holidays is mugs and bowls, they are not only useful (duh) but you can also get some seriously festive ones. My favourite store to get mine from is Anthropologie, they have a new Christmas collection every year - and every year they outdo themselves. They are on the pricier side but I 100% think it is worth it, you are quite literally getting a piece of art. 

A more affordable option is Zara Home, they also have some incredibly cute pieces and their sale section is usually pretty amazing. 

Something that always brightens up a space and adds a very natural festive touch is what I call the Christmas Plant. I am not entirely sure what its real name is but it is nature's representation of Christmas. Just one look at them and I feel like I am staring into Santa Claus' eyes. 

To brighten up the holidays, I love to use fairy lights not only to decorate my tree but above my bed, around my window, etc. It makes any space so much cosier and whilst they are no super festive as many people have them up all year round,  it still nice a very nice touch. 

Now, this is not exactly a decoration, but advent calendars never fail to bring the festive spirit. It is a nice daily reminder of how close the best day of the year is getting. And it is also a very valid excuse to indulge on some milky chocolate.

Finally, the easiest way to make any mundane object a little more Christmassy is by adding a beautiful big red bow. It is so easy and simple, but looks like you put so much thought into it - and it can literally be added to anything.

How do you like to decorate your place for the holidays?
