Just wanted to do a quick post to say Happy New year!

Hope everyone has a safe and healthy new year’s eve and 2021!

Thank you for reading,

Take care and see you next year Lauren x

blog Blogmas Christmas Goals life Lifestyle

December 11th: My goals for December.

Hi readers,

This evening, I’ve been reflecting and trying to decide what my goals are for this last month of 2020.

1. Try not to spend to much .

2. Appreciate my family, and the things some others may not have.

3. Try not to eat too unhealthy (difficult)

4. Make time for me.

5. Try not to get to stressed.

At the moment, I think the main thing is taking everything one step at a time.

Take care everyone Lauren x

Blogmas Christmas Questions Tag

December 9th: Christmas tag questions.

1. How do you celebrate Christmas? My whole family celebrate together. We exchange presents, eat lots of food and play games.

2. How are you spending this Christmas? Due to the pandemic, I think this one will be a quiet one. It’s difficult to arrange anything due to restrictions and rules for the time being.

3. Are you good at buying gifts for others? I like to pride myself on being a good gift-buyer. I’m always trying to pay attention to what people would like. Now I’m an adult I love buying and giving gifts.

4. What’s your most memorable Christmas memory? My most memorable Christmas memory is getting my bike. My mum and dad hid it in the garage with a balloon on it.

5. How did you spend last Christmas? I spend last Christmas Eve in a packed busy store working. Then on Christmas day went round my Aunties and Uncles for dinner. Then later on in the evening went around my boyfriend’s house.

6. On Christmas Eve, what do you leave out for Santa? When I was a child, I used to leave out a mince pie and a glass of milk.

7. What is your favourite Christmas movie? Love actually.

8. What is your favourite Christmas song? Boney M- Mary’s boy child.

9. What do you eat on Christmas day? A full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

10. Do you have any Christmas Eve Traditions? No, I don’t which is kind of disappointing.

Thank you for reading.

Christmas Movie Netflix

December 8th: Holidate on Netflix.

Hello readers,

I discovered a new movie on Netflix earlier on, and I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve found Netflix has added some pretty good movies this month. It helps that I love Christmas films.

Emma Roberts stars as the main character in this film. It’s about strangers fed up with dating, who agree to be each other’s dates during holidays.

Even though it didn’t have great reviews, I still enjoyed this film. It was a feel-good film that I would watch again.

Have you watched this movie? what are your thoughts?

Thank you for reading Lauren x

Blogmas Christmas Craft Knitting Uncategorized

December 6th: Christmas Knitting.

Hi guys,

This weekend has been a relaxing one. So since I’ve had lots of time, I thought I would attempt some Christmas knitting.

One positive from lockdown is I’ve learnt to knit. I’m far from an expert, but I am slowly getting better.

It was my first attempt at a stocking. I got the tutorial from YouTube https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DryYSK0NAQY

I made a couple of mistakes. However, on the whole, I think it turned out pretty well. I was pretty impressed with myself. You know that feeling that you’ve done better than you thought you would.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Take care Lauren x

December 4th: Snow?!

Evening readers,

This morning I woke up to seeing snow. Living in the south of the UK it’s not regular getting snow. It felt very Christmasy. Unfortunately, it went horrible and sludgy as now is all melted. I didn’t even take a picture either which I kind of regret. It’s still absolutely freezing which is not a change round here.

Also, last night I brought let’s get crafting magazine. So I’m planning for lots of Christmas crafts that I will be posting on my blog in the future.

Thank you for reading
