December Smile

As it is the first day of December I made a special post including three topics (3-in-1 post): Christmas movie selection, Christmas song selection and my Christmas wishlist. I hope I can get you in Christmas spirit with this ;) For each section I wrote one question, I am just so curious about your favourites this month! :)

10 Christmas movies

1. It's a Wonderful Life (1946)- An angel shows a businessman how life would turn out if he never existed.

Animated movies
2. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)- Jack Skellington gets from Halloweentown to Christmas Town.
3. Arthur Christmas (2011)- Santa's youngest son goes for a rescue mission.
4. The Polar Express (2004)- A boy boards a magical train to visit North Pole.

5. Four Christmases (2008)- One couple. Four divorced parents. Four Christmases.
6. Home Alone 1 & 2 (1990 & 1992)- Kevin is left alone. Twice.
7. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)- Grinch wants to take a revenge on a nearby village by stealing Christmas.
8. The Christmas Cottage (2008)- An artist wants to help his mother to save a family house.
9. Christmas Angel (2009)- A story about helping secret Santa.
10. Elf (2003)- A man raised as an elf is sent on a journey to find out who he really is. 

My ten Christmas movies choice is not nearly enough to embrace all good movies out there. There are few of seasonal movies from series like Shrek the Halls (2007) and quite new ones I haven't seen yet like The Nutcracker in 3D (2010).

What is your favourite Christmas movie?

10 Christmas songs

1. Andy Williams - It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year
2. Train - Shake Up Christmas
3. Frank Sinatra - Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
4. I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas- The Drifters
5. Holidays Are Coming- Coca Cola Advert
6. It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas- Bing Crosby
7. Wham- Last Christmas
8. Dean Martin- Let It Snow
9. Brenda Lee- Rockin Around The Christmas Tree
10. Mariah Carey- All I Want For Christmas Is You

I'm sure these songs are familiar to all of you (mostly from watching Home Alone). And not to mention there is an entire album of Michael Bublé, full of Christmas songs! If you have a chance, check it out. I think it'll be my favourite this month. 

Are any of these your favourites?


1. Lessons from Madame Chic- Useful tips, not only on style.  (from 18,11 €)
2. Lauren Conrad- Style. Yes, I own Beauty but not Style. How inappropriate ;) (from only 10,17 €)
3. Zara Mini Office City bag- because I love when bag has shape and looks sleek and elegant. (Price: 39,95 €)
4. H&M earrings- set of 12 for only 4,95 €
5. H&M jumper- 9,95 €
6. H&M set of 10 rings for only 2,95 €
7. Manhattan (Cosmetics) nail polish- I once bought the same colour but it was limited edition and now it's available anytime!- cca. 2-3 €
8. Essence Cream Highlighter limited edition- cca. 3 €
9. Catrice Sunglow Matte Bronzing Powder for medium skin- 4,29 €

So I'd like to finish this post by saying (writing): Make few evenings free, occupy the couch, get a blanket and put on a movie while sipping a cup of hot chocolate (or tea).

Until next time.
