You know it's December when... 🎄⛄️

It’s official, Halloween Instagram posts are now considered old news - and you’re beginning to feel the New Year countdown looming. So for the Coconut Crew, here are ten signs that remind you it’s December!

Red Cups

We visit Starbucks very often this time of the year – and when they roll out their festive red cups you know it’s time to get excited - the official red cup release date should be a holiday in itself! We can all agree that there really is no better shopping break then a Starbucks break, and what makes December at Starbucks even better is their range of ‘Christmas flavours’, that are just Christmas in a cup.

Yankee Candle splurges

This is the one time of the year when it’s perfectly okay to spend around £100 on Yankee candles. It’s December, the month of candles, right?


This is also the one time of the year when it’s perfectly okay to buy everything at a tin size portion. Quality Street for breakfast is acceptable.

Gym? What’s that?

You know it’s December when gym motivation is at an all time low and eating motivation is at an all time high!


Party emails around the office are circulating and for the first time your social life is stressing you out! Obviously the hardest decision is what to wear.


Zara is truly an essential when it comes to feeling warm but also looking amazing this December. Their coats are just everything, and you know a little trip to Zara says au revoi Autumn, bonjour Winter. All I want for Christmas…. Is a new Zara coat.

Binge TV

When you spend your Sunday hibernating under three douves, binge watching Gossip Girl, you know it’s December.


Every December, for some unknown reason, we get incredibly emotional. We send out winter boyfriend applications and we can’t understand how a two-minute John Lewis advert can reduce us to tears!


You know it’s December when you find yourself spending hours in Lush. We don’t know if it’s the limited edition products, or if it’s the snowman shapes, but Lush is irresistible come December.  


‘Tis the season to look festive and buy several different shades of MAC red lipstick. In December shimmer is stronger, eye-liner is thicker and blush is non-negotiable.

So there you have it - ten official signs it’s December! Nobody panic, 2016 is only less than a month away…
