Christmas is a special time of year – no matter how old you are, you get to connect with your inner child and embrace the feelings of joy, fun and surprise.
However Christmas resonates in your world, I’m here to tell you, Christmas can be sexy.
Below are five suggestions on how you can have a sexier Christmas this year.
For the ladies
Why not go all out and replicate Mrs Claus. A red dress with white trimming & a Santa hat is as sexy as hell.
Whether you whip an outfit together on the sewing machine or purchase an outfit at a thrift or retail store. It will cause a storm amongst the boys and a storm within you.
For the gentleman
Women adore men with an adventurous spirit and creative flair.
Why not be daring, dress up as Santa, or as one of his elves, if that doesn’t work dress up as a polar bear. (grrr grrr)
A common assumption is that ‘sexy’ costs money which is nonsense. Champagne and candles are a staple for any romantic occasion.
Low on funds? Spent all your last cents on seafood or that expensive gift? Don’t despair, you can pick up a pack of 24 tea light candles at various cheap shops throughout Melbourne (eg: The Reject Shop) which cost around $2. They add ambience to the plainest of rooms. Coupled with a bottle of bubbly and served in champagne flutes with strawberries. One can practice sexy high class on the tightest of budgets.
Music is a huge ‘must’ for Christmas I suggest you go out and buy “Christmas With The Ratpack.” Sit back on Christmas Eve, wrapping your presents and drinking copious amounts of eggnog while listening to the sexy tones of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and Dean Martin. If you are not feeling sexier by midnight, I suggest you drink more eggnog.
Sexy is about the art of giving and receiving, which brings me to the topic of presents. Presents does not have to equal expense this Christmas. Often the most meaningful gifts are homemade. Perhaps a personalised card or some scrumptious homemade cookies.
The Christmas stocking is where one can get real creative and bring out the child within. Fill it with water guns, sparklers, packs of cards, bubbles, Christmas crackers and Freddo Frogs; and mark my word, the memorable Kodak moments will evolve.
Last but not least, take a stroll around your neighbourhood, embracing the balminess of summer nights. Witness the creativity of your neighbours and their front yards. Christmas lights, Santas and reindeers – bring us all back to the spirit of Christmas.
Remember: wonderment remains eternally sexy.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
