My Perfect Christmas Capsule with Villa Plus

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

With the countdown to Christmas well and truly on [yes, I may have put The Holiday onto my iPhone to watch on long journeys], I was recently challenged by the guys over at Villa Plus*  to pack my virtual case and choose the villa of my dreams at Christmas and all the things that I would love to take with me.

.

In fact, The Holiday is a very fitting film for the challenge. Two woman who pack all their most important things and venture across the pond for Christmas. One to a country home is Surrey and the other to an LA mansion ... I digress and have literally typed my thoughts. 

Anyway, so here's my board of my perfect Christmas holiday villa and the must-have things that I would take [other than my friends and family of course]. 

My Christmas Villa: 

For me, I would have to choose a Christmas Villa in Crete. I've only been to Greece once and I absolutely adored it - it's the perfect combination of history, good food and beautiful beaches.

Party Dress:

You've simply got have a fabulous party dress at Christmas. It seem's a little dull - but I always opt for a classic black dress and have my eye on this little number from ASOS.

Festive Jumper:

I know that a lot of people have now bought into the Christmas jumper trend - but it is Christmas after all and you don't have to spend a fortune on them - places like New Look and Primark are pretty reasonable.

Camera:

Last Christmas I took a beautiful picture of my dad, grandma and great grandma all together. It was so magical to see three generations of my family, together at Christmas and it was sadly the last photo I was able to take before my great grandma passed away in the February. This is why I always make sure that I have my camera with me to capture those special moments. 

I also have my eye on this little beauty from John Lewis

Christmas Movies:

No word of a lie, this year I am planning a Christmas movie marathon - every day in December I will watch one of my favourite Christmas movies.

Christmas Treats:

It's Christmas!! Which means time for lots of cheeky Christmas treats - I would definitely be taking a few Lindt Santas in my hand luggage.
