The Christmas Bowling Party Mixtape

The Christmas Bowling Party Mixtape - Sophie & Sharlene
Sophie demonstrating how it's done, ūüďł by our very own¬†Sharlene

'Tis the season, friends. We are not sure how it happened but it's December already and we are so ready for the holidays.

It is a crazy, crazy busy time for us, but we would not change it for the world. We love making jewellery and we love the idea of it being gifted and passed on to the people you love ♡

To celebrate the end of the year we prepared a Christmas playlist for you to enjoy with us. There are some classics, new songs, and some odd and random choices. We had simple rules: just pick one or two songs that mean Christmas to you. And then the magic happened. Here are our choices and the overview of our Bowling Christmas do (spoiler alert: it was so much fun). You can find the mixtape on Spotify and at the bottom of this page.

'Fairytale of New York' by The Pogues & 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' by John Lennon - chosen by Laura (who surprised everyone and herself with 3 strikes)

'Little Girl Blue' by Nina Simone & 'Home Alone Theme' by Mount Royal Orchestra - chosen by Clara (she did a great job covering for Aimée)

'Little Saint Nick'¬†by The Beach Boys & 'Stop the Cavalry' by Jona Lewie¬†- chosen by¬†Aim√©e (her and her pregnant belly left early without stepping foot on the bowling alley, but she managed to win the game - see above ‚ėļÔłŹ)

'Fly Me to the Moon' by Frank Sinatra & 'Careless Whisper' by George Michael - chosen by Anna (who was really impressed with her performance - her fringe jacket and pink velvet outfit was epic)

'Stay Another Day' by¬†East 17 & 'White Christmas' by Otis Redding¬†- chosen by Rea¬† (she was showing us some slick moves with strong enthusiasm ūüėé)

'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' by Andrea Bocelli & 'All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey - chosen by Elisa (surprise surprise, she was a better player than she expected)

'River' by Hurray for the Riff Raff & 'Baby it's Cold Outside' by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan - chosen by Agostina (who will refrain from bowling ever again - hint: not her sport at all)

'Last Christmas' by Wham! & 'Do They Know it's Christmas?' by Band Aid - chosen by Nicky (who had some hidden bowling skills she was not even aware of - watch this space!)

'Driving Home for Christmas' by Chris Rea & 'Carol of the Bells' by Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych - chosen by Sophie (our one and only bowling pro)

'Mistletoe' by Justin Bieber - chosen by Rachel (who celebrated every pin knocked down in the most professional manner only an actress can pull off)

'2000 Miles' by Pretenders - chosen by Roanne (she slowly and steadily managed to have a killer total score)

'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' by Darlene Love & 'Stille Nacht' by Jehan Revert - chosen by Sharlene (who tried her best and as always, did it with aplomb and big fat smile)

'Walking in the Air' by Peter Auty & 'Merry Xmas Everybody" by Slade - chosen by Johnny (who proved to have some unconventional bowling moves including some goal scoring slides à la Gareth Bale)

'The Nutcracker - Waltz of the Flowers' by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky & 'Happy New Year' by ABBA - chosen by Darja (who took it nice and easy with her baby bump and managed a super strike)

So we'll sign off for the time being. See you again in January. We hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember to hug your loved ones and keep them close!
