The Christmas Lush Haul

It’s almost become a Christmas tradition for me to pop into a Lush store and have a good ol’ whiff of their Christmas releases and every year I always seem to walk out with a paper bag full. Of course, this year is no exception. I particularly enjoyed the Christmas releases this year which features some exciting new additions and some old festive favourites and if there is a time of year where popping into Lush is essential, it is definitely Christmas time!

How To Stay Productive This Winter

Even though we are currently going through all the excitement of Christmas and everything that brings, Winter can be a specially hard season. It is cold. It is dark. The days feel incredibly short with the nights dragging and feeling as if they last forever. I know that I personally always struggle with this time of year, once Christmas has been and gone and there isn’t the excitement of the festivities, everything just goes by a little slower and there can almost seem to feel as if there is this bleak outlook on life.

Feeling Festive at Winter Wonderland

As promised in my December Goals post, I really wanted to go above and beyond with the Christmas Spirit this year and, if I do say so myself, I am doing pretty alright at that! I have already visited my local German market, been to my local towns Christmas Lights switch on but there was something in particular that has been sitting on my Christmas to-do list for a little while now. Winter Wonderland. Yep, the huge borderline tacky but wonderful Christmas Wonderland slap bang in the middle of Hyde Park featuring a funfair, German markets, an ice-rink, shows and of course, a Bavarian Village.

Little Ways To Cheer Yourself Up This December

There is no denying that December is the most magical month there is. The Christmas festivities are all around, twinkling lights in every window, smiles on everyone’s faces, it’s the season of goodwill and making incredible memories you’ll want to remember for years to come. But, even with the touch of magic in the air, it is also an overwhelming month. The pressure for the perfect Christmas, the pressure to perhaps see family you would not typically see for your own reasons, the pressure to make sure everyone has the perfect gifts, the pressure to make sure this year day is as good as the last. The financial pressure can be pretty tough too, it’s an incredibly expensive time of year and the costs associated with Christmas can leave you overwhelmed and anxious.

What I love about Christmas

Now, don’t get me wrong… I love everything about Christmas. Everything. If it is Christmassy, I probably have a lot of love for it. It is just simply the best time of the year. It’s just so magical and wonderful and honestly, I have never truly grown out of the Christmas Magic you felt as a child. Which, by the way, is definitely a good thing!

The Christmas Gift Guide

Whether you are stuck with gift ideas for your girl gang, mother hen, grandmother, sister, cousin, work colleague or niece (the list is endless) or simply looking for inspiration for yourself, I have put together a little gift guide for you of some of the things that *ahem* I love and some things that I truly think make the perfect gift. I have tried to keep it affordable, I know we are not all made of money and there are still so many beautiful, thoughtful and special gifts that do not require you to spend all the dollar.
