Today is yet another special day as I will be interviewing Jenny who I have been lucky to interact with. I am happy to have her on here today. Jenny is a 28 year old lifestyle blogger from the UK who has been blogging for over 6 years at Jenny in Neverland. When she’s not watching Jane the Virgin, having Mc Donald’s breakfast hash browns, or enjoying a vinyasa, she is blogging! Now straight to the christmas interview.
What does Christmas mean to you?
For me, Christmas is a time of giving. Being able to treat my loved ones after what is usually a busy and sometimes stressful year to show them how much they mean to me. It’s also a well needed time of rest and self-care.
What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
I love so much about Christmas! Apart from the food obviously, I think my favourite thing is how magical everything looks and feels. Especially all the lights. Christmas lights and decorations make me so happy.
What is your go-to tip for having a more organized Christmas?
Start planning early. Getting organized early is really important for me because it saves any stress later on in the month.
What is your favourite Christmas tradition?
We don’t have many but my mum and I always put the decorations up together which is nice.
Who is your favourite person to buy presents for?
Definitely not my Dad! I love my dad but he’s a nightmare because he never wants or needs anything! My favourite person is probably my boyfriend because we have a lot of similar interests and I can get creative with his gifts. He also appreciates funny/jokey gifts so it’s nice to include one of those as well.

What holiday movie or special do you watch over and over again?
The Muppets Christmas Carol tends to get watched every Christmas!
Share one vivid Christmas memory, good or bad.
