So Christmas is finally upon us - the tree is up, the lights are glistening and everyone is in an excited fluster for the office Xmas party.
In preparation for all glittery season, we have compiled a list of our favorite 5 things about the Christmas season. Grab a mulled wine and read on !
1 - THE WORK CHRISTMAS DO
Christmas is here, and the office Xmas party is not far behind. Prepare yourself to don some sequins, show your office pals how fleek you can look when its NOT a Monday morning, and watch Barry from accounts hit the dance floor with hips Shakira would be proud (or cringe?) at. We say absolutely do get tequilas at bar with your boss, and absolutely don’t do anything that would end in you doing the office walk of shame on Monday morning.
2 - THE FOOD
It cold, it’s wet (goodbye dreams of a white Christmas) and your mum’s got cheeseboards lying all over the place. Christmas is our FAVORITE time of year to eat, drink and be Me-Me - and with all of these snacks everywhere, it would be rude not to stretch our stomachs in preparation for Christmas dinner. Feel free to eat 13 pigs in blankets in a row without judgement, the gym can wait til January.
3 - THE FILMS
Anyone who doesn’t claim to love Christmas films is kidding themselves - we cannot WAIT to put on our comfy pants, grab all the carbs and stick on the Grinch.. or Elf… Or the Muppet’s Christmas Carol. This step is highly recommended for hangover days (day after the work Xmas do, we’re looking at you) - bonus points if you bring your duvet into the equation.
It’s Christmas, so do take this opportunity to get new comfy pants for the equation (See - Sunday Joggers). Keeping you cute, even on the couch.
4- THE EXTENDED BOXING DAY
Here at the Me-Me HQ, we love Boxing Day, but think it gets a lot of stick. Sure, it’s no Christmas day, but many of us have over a whole WEEK off work for Christmas, so this is the best part. Take this opportunity to wake up at 10am EVERY DAY (YAY!), play with all your shiny new toys (or clothes?), raid the boxing day sales like the crazed shopping animal you are, and eat left-over Christmas lunch sandwiches to your hearts content. Boxing day and onwards - we love you.
5 - NEW YEAR, NEW ME-ME
Christmas is obviously the best time of year, but here at Me-Me we are embracing it past the shiny tinsel, and using it as a time to let positive energy take-over, and put forward the best version of ourselves for the new year.
Whether 2018 has been an absolute belter, or the dumps for our fellow females, the beginning of a new year is the perfect occasion to re-invent yourself, change something your not happy about and become the very best version of you. Whether you do this by hitting the gym, getting the chop in the hairdressers or saying ‘bye boy’ to the salty dog who’s been sliding into your DM’s , YOU DO YOU ALPHA’S, and make sure you love yourself unconditionally whilst doing it!
