December mixtape // via Spotify
I usually post my monthly mixtapes at the end of the month, but I thought I would do this one a little early as a festive treat to help you get into the Christmas spirit. It’s basically impossible to put up a Christmas tree or wrestle with trying to wrap up circular presents (I mean seriously, HOW is it done?) without a suitable soundtrack – plenty of classic cheese and jingle bells aplenty, but with a sprinkling of ~alternative~ tunes too. I’m off to the Scottish Bloggers Christmas Party this evening so I will definitely be putting this on in the background whilst I adorn myself with glitter and red lipstick. What’s your favourite Christmas song?
