‘Doubt Kills More Dreams than Failure Ever Will’ You go wrong when you don’t believe in yourself. Failure isn’t the part that will end up crushing all of your dreams, it’s when you doubt yourself and your abilities. If you really dream of achieving something, […]
‘The Best View Comes After the Hardest Climb’
Things won’t just get handed to you in life. You have to work for everything. But with all of that hard work, you will get the most rewarding results. You will hit low points, unable to see any way out of that state, but just keep climbing, no matter how tough and steep it may be, because you will be so proud of yourself when you find success at the end of it all. And when you feel down and think it’s all just a waste of your time, keep your head held high and continue to keep aiming and working for your goals, as you can do it. Everything is possible!
Oh my goodness gracious me, can you believe it’s Christmas Eve, because I for one find it hard to believe!! This month has raced by… this entire year has to be honest! But, I thought today I would look back through the month of December […]
I for one feel like December is rushing by, and that might mean that some of you are still a bit stuck for what to get as some of your final presents or little stocking fillers for friends and family, so I’m going to give you a run down of 10 gifts under £10 for women.
This lovely gift is on sale for £10 currently at Superdrug. It’s got a mirror, lipgloss and lip liner all within this gorgeous cosmetic bag covered in a baby pink lip design.
A scent I always associate with Christmas is gingerbread, so this is why I thought the new Zoella Gingerbread Fragrance Set would be the perfect stocking filler.
This earring stand is so adorable, and has quite a vintage look to it. It’s also a brilliant stocking filler for if you also give the person a pair of earrings as part of their main present.
You can’t go wrong with a candle, so what can be better than a fresh, white jasmine candle with the person’s initial on it.
Of course one of the stocking fillers I had to show you was owl related. So here’s this beautiful, copper owl windchime.
These little cat trinket dishes are absolutely adorable, same as everything else in Oliver Bonas to be honest.
Lip balms always make the perfect little stocking fillers, and are always a hit. Plus, I love grapefruit scented items.
This matches with the trinket dish, and is a really super cute cat to hold your rings, with a very modern white background and gold markings.
Here’s yet again another way to store your jewellery. I also love the cactus design. It’s extremely cute!
I see a lot of these metal letters around, but this hanging decoration could either go up in your room, or it could be used for Christmas and be put right up on the tree.
So I hope that this list is helpful, but it’s a couple of cute stocking filler ideas, that you may or may not think suits the person you’re buying for.
I’ve always seen these adorable canvas’ all over Pinterest, and always been so obsessed with them, knowing that one day I would make one myself, and that day has come! My canvas consists of a melted rainbow crayon background with the words ‘Merry Christmas’ written […]
One of my favourite things to bake, other than cakes, are mini meringue kisses. They’re sooo easy to make, and definitely a massive hit! Ingredients: 150g granulated sugar 3 egg whites 1/2 tsp vanilla extract Food colouring Step 1- Preheat oven to 110oC, and cover […]
Even though around Christmas time it might seem a bit busier, as people rush around trying to get everything ready, and making sure that everything’s perfect, in reality I love Christmas time, and see it as more of a chilled, relaxed time of year.
So, onto my top 5 reasons for why I love Christmas…
Being at home with the family
When I think of Christmas, one of the first things that comes to mind is being with my family, all cosy and relaxed at home, and just enjoying being together. I see Christmas as a time to spend with family much more now, since i’m only back home from University for the Christmas holidays.
Of course I love and appreciate every present that gets gifted to me, but I much prefer give presents than get them. I really enjoy either making or buying presents that are unique to each person, hoping that they would really like them. I always try and get presents that I think would really mean something to each person.
I’m pretty sure we’ve established through yesterday’s post that i’m completely obsessed with jumpers, especially when they’re Christmas jumpers, so obviously that’s one of the reasons for loving Christmas time.
Once Halloween is over I always start getting super excited and happy to decorate… although I have a whole month to wait. And this year I made my family wait to decorate until I returned home. I can’t miss decorating, and it’s definitely one of the best things about Christmas.
We never have a massive Christmas dinner to the point that we’re stuffed full, but the food in December is definitely amazing!! For me it’s one of the best times for both savory and sweet foods.
So, what’s your favourite thing about Christmas, and can you relate to any of my reasons?
What’s Christmas without all of the amazing, festive jumpers? I pretty much live in jumpers all Winter long, so over December I definitely make the most of the Christmas ones, and so I’m going to introduce you to some of my favourite Christmas jumpers at […]
