CHRISTMAS TREE SHOPPING

13 December 2018


We’re halfway into December and my parents and I just yesterday managed to get our tree up and decorated. It’s so bad… At first I wanted to get a tree in the very beginning of December. Then life got in the way and I had lots of deadlines to hand in. We then were planning on going to buy our tree during the weekend, but the whole city turned out to be at the garden centre to buy their Christmas trees, so we decided to just get one on Monday instead. Turns out we bought such a big tree that didn’t fit into our car, which meant we had to get it delivered home. And it only arrived Wednesday morning, so all of yesterday afternoon was spent decorating the tree. It may have taken a bit, but it’s finally up and it’s always such an achievement to see it in the middle of the living room while it slowly turns dark.

MY END OF YEAR GOALS

10 December 2018


November and December are really busy months for me. I am in the middle of finishing things up for university and I have so many big deadlines. That’s why in these last three weeks of the year I wanted to set myself some goals. Somewhere in the beginning of this month I started noticing that I was not really feeling so great. I was starting to live from deadline to deadline and was not really appreciating everything happening around me. That’s why this weekend I decided to set myself a couple of goals I want to achieve this month to live more in the moment and to enjoy a few smaller things.

FIVE FAVOURITES OF NOVEMBER

9 December 2018


Only just now I have had the time to sit down and talk you through all of my favourite things of November. November has been such a busy month that has literally gone by in a blur. I feel like I have been on autopilot this past month, with how busy I was. I can barely remember any of the things that have happened in that month. That’s probably the reason why it took me a little longer to write down a list of all the things I have loved in November.

GETTING INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

7 December 2018


I am only two blog posts into December and I already feel like I am on a roll with all the festive content. I am slowly but surely starting to feel super festive and it’s all got to do with a couple of fun things I did this weekend. In the run up to Christmas I always like to do a couple of fun and festive activities to get in the Christmas spirit. This basically is a post dedicated to all the fun things I like to do in December to get myself super excited for the holidays.

PLANNING CHRISTMAS ON A UNI BUDGET

5 December 2018


Happy December guys! Omg, I can’t believe one of my favourite months of the year is already here. This year is literally flying by in the blink of an eye. My first couple of days of December were quite stressful, just like most of November was to me. However, I handed in a big assignment now and am ready to get into the proper festive mood. I started my Chritmas prep quite early this year, as I knew I would be busy during December, and since everyone is posting Christmas gift guides right now, I thought it would be fun to write a blog post that is a bit different instead. In today’s post I thought it would be fun to share a couple of tips to plan your Christmas while on a uni budget.
