For most people, now that Halloween is out of the way the Christmas vibes have started to creep in although admittedly, I’ve been singing Christmas songs since Mid September (and getting told off for it). Now I think it’s finally an acceptable time to get excited for Christmas, I thought I’d share with you a few of the things I’ve done this year to get myself into the festive mood!
There is absolutely nothing better than sitting on Pinterest for
hours ten minutes and pinning the hell out of alll those festive pins. For me, there’s nothing better than a bit of Christmas inspiration to motivate you and get you thinking about what you’re going to do this year. I’ve decided that this year, my wrapping is gonna be the bee’s knees so I’m pinning lots of content to spark up some idea’s. If you love all things Christmas like me, follow me over on pinterest to see what I’ve found so far!
I’d like to think that I’m a very organised person when it comes to Christmas and I always browse the internet and write down some idea’s for gifts. I tend to think about all the people I’d love to surprise and then go from there, although this of course tends to change as soon as I get into the shops and see something amazing but it always gives me a head start! The idea of finding something someone will love always cheers me up so writing out these lists early (to Christmas music of course) always gets me right in the mood. It’s always a fab idea to do this early as if you’re going to make something yourself it gives you plenty of time to prepare and pick up everything you need!
Christmas Adverts (Spoiler alert!!!)
Yesterday a lot of the Christmas adverts were released, and personally I love watching them all as it’s something everyone generally gets excited about. Whether it’s the supermarkets having the whole nation in tears or the Coca-Cola lorry on its annual outing, there’s always something to cheer you up. The John Lewis advert that everyone’s been waiting for was finally released (which means it’s officially time to get festive) and although it’s had a lot of mixed views, it was another I absolutely loved. I think people may have missed the deeper meaning (or I could be wrong) but to me this advert shows how selfless we should be around Christmas; the monster gets the little boy a present to help him sleep after seeing just how worn out he is staying up all night, even though it’s apparent just how much fun they were both having together. The monster put the little boy first which I thought was really sweet – it certainly worked for me! Another one I have to mention is the Marks and Spencer advert that came out just a few days ago. I loved this one and I can safely say I think Christmas definitely needs some more little bears around!
As I only started this little blog in March, this is going to be my first ever Christmas in the Blogosphere and I’m very excited about it. I decided a few weeks ago that I was going to participate in Blogmas and create new christmassy content for you every single day. I’ve been using my bullet journal to plan ideas and I’ve already got a fair few written up and ready to go, which has obviously put me in the Christmas mood as I’ve been focusing on it so much.
Are you participating in blogmas this year? Let me know what kind of things you’ll be doing to get yourself into the Christmas mood!
