Blogmas #18: Christmas Q&A

Yellow's The Word

I’m actually quite excited for this. I don’t think I’ve ever done a Q&A and this one will be Christmassy so what’s not to love?

L and I have been asking you to tweet in and comment your questions for us, which I’ll be giving my answers to today!

What is your favourite Christmas film? – Megan @ Probability Reading and Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff

Arghhh it’s so hard to pick one! In a previous Blogmas post I said that my favourite Christmassy films were Nativity!, The Polar Express and Paddington (loosely linked to Christmas but it’s amazing???). So, if I had to pick out of those I think it would have to be Nativity! based on the fact that I can watch it again and again and still get that heart-warming feeling during the ending! But then I also love Paddington??? Arghhhhh

Do you prefer staying at…

Blogmas #16: A Christmas Poem

Yellow's The Word

Hellooooo! Today I’ll be sharing a Christmas poem that I have attempted to write (oh what wonderful (not) memories of GCSE English lit poetry exams…). Anyway, I was trying to think of how to go about writing a Christmas poem – I mean, normal poems are hard enough! – so I decided I’d just start writing and go with the flow, so let’s see how this turns out (badly, probably).
An iridescent, luminescent flake of snow,

Weaves it’s way to the ground, swirling round.

Passers by walk on, following the trail of multicoloured orbs,

Strung from trees, in the place of leaves, swaying gently in the bitter breeze.

Full of laughter and joy ever-after,

Gaggles of people are wandering, children pondering,

If the snow is bound, to stick round. More snowflakes fall without a sound.

A dog plods along, to an orchestra’s merry song,

It’s fur glistens, as the people…

Blogmas #14: A Letter to Santa

Yellow's The Word

Hello dear readers, or should I say Santa, because in this post I’m supposed to writing a letter to good ol’ Cap’n Claus. So, let’s get on with it!

Please send via carrier pigeon to:


Santa’s Grotto,



(I’ll have you know that is the official Royal Mail provided address for all the smol beans to send their letters to Santa too. I am not smol but hopefully it’ll get there somehow!)

Dear Santa,

It’s been a long time since I wrote to you and a lot has changed – the ice caps are melting, the sea levels rising – the planet is going out of control! But thankfully, Christmas still exists and no matter how many disappointingly snowless winters we endure, you can always guarantee there’ll be an abundance of snow-covered, sing and dancing ornaments and decorations and whatnot emerging in stores at the onset of…

Blogmas #12: Christmas Gift Guide

Yellow's The Word

Well, I could swear I already wrote this post but WordPress says otherwise, so maybe technology that actually works would be a good thing to include??

Anyway, today I’ll be sharing some gift ideas of your stuck for last-minute presents or just want to do something different!

Photo prints

I just…can’t resist printed photos. I have so many strung up around my room attached to fairy lights and I love looking at them and reminiscing about the (near) past. I think photos make a really great gift as it’s likes haring memories with people. I get my photo prints from the app La La Lab, and their prints are so cute, you can customise them with caption and coloured borders too. (If you would like to get £5 off your first order, use my cheeky code PGLU1TYX 😉 )

A “hug in a box”

This is sort of hard to…
