The Pros and Cons of a December Birthday


There are so many reasons why having a December birthday is brilliant. But there are also just as many reasons why it isn't so brilliant. Being born just 5 days before Christmas Day has had it's ups and it's downs over the last few years and today I thought I'd share my pros and cons for having a December birthday. I know a few people with December birthdays too. Maybe you can relate? Let me know!

Christmas Pinspirations


For today's Blogmas post, I thought it would be nice to keep it simple and share some of my favourite Christmas pins from Pinterest. I love Pinterest. It's where I get a lot of ideas and inspiration from and I often find myself getting lost in it for hours. I don't use it as a social media platform like a lot of bloggers do (simply because I wouldn't know where to start and how to use it as a platform) but it is one of my favourite websites. Anyway, I'm not going to be chatting much more from now. I'd like you to enjoy the pins and tell me which group of pins is your favourite. I've tried to themed them. The one above I'd call 'Christmas Cosiness'.

Christmas Traditions


I have had a variety of different Christmases since I was a little kid. I've had Christmases in Portugal and here at home in England. I've had the traditional Portuguese Christmas and tradition British Christmases. I've got a lot of family traditions and over the years with John, we have made our own traditions. Today I want to share all those different traditions with you and maybe after, you can share some in the comments with me! How do you do Christmas?

My Fresh Christmas Wreath


Last week I got to go to a Christmas Wreath Workshop where I got to make my own fresh Christmas wreath. It's so easy to buy a ready made wreath whether it's fresh or not, but I didn't realise how much fun it would be to make instead! This is one of my favourite Christmassy themed DIYs to date and I'm so happy with how it turned out. Today I thought it would be nice to share my photos from the workshop to show you how I made it. I'm not going to write about it all in detail because you get the gist of it from the pictures, but also because I can't remember the names of all the plants!

Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Gift guides are my favourite way to search for presents when I'm completely and utterly out of ideas.  They do just what they're designed to and I think they're brilliant. It's fun seeing how different people assemble their gift guides and what their suggestions are. I love making them too in hopes that I can help someone the way other bloggers help me.
I often make my guides quite generic and ensure that I'm not steering you just to think about gifting the things I've listed but also to find similar alternatives to the suggested gift. I really hope you like the guides and find something for that one person you're stuck on.
Now, on to the gift guides for her, for him and for the kids!
