While most of us are looking forward to digging in to a tin of roses this Christmas, model Rosanna Davison is counting down the days for her annual festive getaway -- to exotic Mauritius.
This year will be even more special for the former Miss World as she and fiancé Wes Quirke return to the place of their engagement.
And fittingly for a glamorous bride who will be having not one but two wedding bashes next summer, the 29-year-old is planning a proper New Year's Eve knees-up with her family to mark the special anniversary.
"I am really looking forward to my last Christmas before being married," Rosanna told the Herald.
"I am heading back to Maurituis for New Year's Eve so there will be a big group of us enjoying the festivities there.
"Its coming up to a year since we got engaged so we will have to mark that too."
Rosanna is excited to ring in the New Year for one reason in particular -- her wedding to fiancé Wes is next summer.
The happy couple will get hitched in an exotic European location before returning to celebrate with their family and friends at home.
While she has chosen her location and pondered over her perfect wedding gown, the laid back bride-to-be said she and Wes still have to get cracking on the finer details, including guest lists and invitations.
After a busy year in which she finished college, qualified as a nutritional therapist and appeared on the front cover of German Playboy, Rosanna said she has just one main focus coming into the new year -- planning her wedding.
"It will be head first into wedding preparations when we're home in January," she explained.
"I am really excited for 2014 and becoming a married woman, its going to be an amazing year."
Rosanna first visited Mauritius with her family in 1995.
She quickly fell in love with the island and her family has returned every single year since then to the up market Le Saint Geran Hotel on the east coast.
Rosanna said she has developed a "deep emotional attachment" to the island, which she described as "one of the most beautiful places on earth".
