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.

Surviving The Party Season as an Introvert

Surviving The Party Season as an Introvert

I adore Christmas. I adore the festivities and ultimately, I do enjoy the parties and social interactions that come with the season. I love seeing family, friends and the front door feels like it is always open with random drop-ins. I love Christmas parties and gatherings. But, there is also another part of me, a big part that is well aware that realistically, I am an introvert. Christmas is already an overwhelming time of year with everything that is going on and missing out on anything definitely gives me a severe case of FOMO in this world of constantly updated social media. Add a long-list of invitations and commitments to that and you’ve got yourself a bit of a situation as an introvert.

The December Goals

Well, here it is. It is finally December! In my opinion, the greatest month of them all! I adore all the festivities and Christmas cheer we are seeing at the moment as the temperatures drop and the trees go up. It is now officially the perfect time to play the Michael Buble Christmas album into your car CD player (if you still have one of those) and crack out the prosecco at any given moment. It’s time to start decorating and assembling the gingerbread house and if you haven’t already, it’s time to get yourself into the loft to grab down the tree and find the decorations.
