I’ll be the first to admit that writing my Christmas cards not yet two weeks into November may be a little premature, but my upcoming two week hol to walt freakin’ disney world has meant all Christmas activities are happening sooner (yay!) rather than later (boo), including writing cards, buying gifts and decking out the house – okay we’re not quite at action stations for decorating the tree yet, but we shall be week Saturday!
I’ve been having fun playing with Polyvore since they added the home interiors features. If you’ve not used Polyvore before, you’ve probably seen it used as a fashion collage tool, importing products from (not all) websites that you can “clip” as you spot them, a la Pinterest. It’s really simple to use, and each item featured should click back to a place to buy the item, which is all good – although you can’t clip items from certain sites like flickr.
So I’ll be sharing some small collections of Christmassy home interiors based around a style. Got an idea for a look you’d like to see turned into Christmas decor? Mermaids? Cats? Kim Fox from Eastenders? Leave a comment and set me some challenges!
To get started, here’s a room oft-overlooked in Christmas decorating – the bedroom. If you don’t have space for a Christmas tree in your bedroom, just decorate the heap of laundry on the floor instead.
Yes that is a cat on the bed.
The nightly fireworks across the various parks of Disney World are the stuff of legend, it blows my mind to think that such spectacular fireworks take place each night and at multiple parks. There are loads of different spots to watch fireworks from, some offering their own additional entertainment to that offered inside the parks themselves.

Magic Kingdom’s Wishes are “the daddy” of fireworks displays and plays out a story of good versus evil by projecting lights and graphics on to Cinderella’s Castle.
Are you mad to go to Blizzard Beach in December?
There are days on a Disney holiday when you wake up and your body says “no, not today”. The French call this “heavy legs”. I call this “running round like a loon in the park for 5 days straight” (less catchy, granted) and a pool day is just what the doctor ordered. But why settle for just a pool when you could have lots of pools and a lazy river, and crazy slides that you ride a ski lift to get to? A ski lift!
