Ramblings about entertainment, lifestyle and travel
I’ve just returned from New York and if I didn’t feel like it was Christmas before, I certainly do now. More Christmas trees that I could possibly count, light shows and that festive spirit. It really does feel like a magical time of year and I cannot wait to drink mulled wine, eat lots and lots of food and spend some time with loved ones. If you still can’t believe that it’s Christmas in just three days’ time, then there are a few events that can change that:
