6 ways to feel more festive this Christmas...

There's only five days to go until Christmas and if, like my boyfriend, you're still not feeling especially festive I've got six ways to help you get there: whether that's through adding something festive into your daily wardrobe or visiting

1, Go iceskating. Irrespective of your skating capabilities you're bound to have a lot of fun. My favourite place to go ice skating is The Natural History Museum: this year Swarovski have decorated the tree, there's a carousel and even a cosy bar that overlooks the rink serving mulled wine and mince pies.

2, Go window-shopping. Department stores such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Liberty are internationally renowned for their iconic window displays. The two Christmases I worked for Selfridges were definitely the years I felt most festive as an adult: ballerinas, brass bands and elves visited each floor putting on wonderful performances. If you're in London be sure to check out the Christmas lights adorning key touristy areas Carnaby Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street are all beautifully lit up.

3, Head to Kew Gardens, Winterville or Winter Wonderland they're all pretty magical. Kew is my new favourite place to go, with singing Holly bushes and the most spectacular displays of Christmas lights and candles it's something to take your whole family to.

4, If you're outside of London go for a drive, when I was younger my Mum would take us all out to see the best Christmas light displays around our local area, and often the county. Nothing says Christmas quite like an over the top lights and singing Santa decorations.

5, Watch your favourite Christmas films, one after the other. We did this last weekend and I'm sure we'll be spending Sunday wrapping presents whilst watching Elf for the thousandth time. If Buddy can't get you into the holiday spirit try Christmas classic Miracle on 34th Street.

6, If all else fails, simply wear a Christmas jumper. I spent yesterday in mine and felt pretty merry all day. I spotted so many girls on the tube wearing wonderfully trashy tinsel earrings and have already resolved to get my ears re-pierced so I can get some flashing Christmas puddings next year.
