I know that it can be a bit more of a challenge to get into the holiday spirit for some people. Not everyone is like me, and as soon as it even gets close to December, I’m already jingly and ready to cover everything in tinsel and chuck merriness around like confetti. But, sometimes it’s not just like slipping on a pair of comfy shoes, you need to mentally prepare, gear up and get things rolling before you can throw yourself into the festivities, so if any of you are still hovering on the border between Christmas and the rest of the boring year, I hope that this blog post helps!
I always think that it’s important to take a minute, reflect and be grateful for what you have. It’s also important to show our gratitude and give something back to the world/community amid all the joy, celebrations and over indulgence. We’ve all gone through some really challenging times and I think this year we all need that Christmas magic more than ever, so even if it’s just a teeny tiny thing, giving back in whatever way we can can make such a big difference to someone and truly make their festive season magical. So today, in the same spirit as my ultimate Christmas bucket list (which you can read here by the way), here are 25 small things you can do to show a little Christmas kindness! I present to you my Christmas Kindness Bingo!!
It’s blogmas day 3 everyone! Now I’m not saying I haven’t planned out everything for Blogmas (I totally have – I even made a cute little post schedule/calendar for my pin board), but I am still at university and have two assessments that I still need to get submitted so that’s why I am uber thankful for all those who submitted guest posts for my Blogmas! Today I’d like to share a super cool guest post from the lovely Heidi so I hope you enjoy it!
So yesterday I started Blogmas on quite a gentle note, just dipping one little toe into the festivities to get you ready, but now I think it’s time we dive headfirst into all things Christmas. I’m talking Christmas music playing way too loudly, playing in the Snow, the smell of cinnamon, ginger, chocolate and pine needles, drinking enough hot chocolate to drown in and eating enough food to create a food baby you’ll be nursing until Valentine’s Day. And… what better way is there to dive headfirst, without a second of hesitation, into as much Christmassyness (is that even a word?? If not it should be), than by kicking off Blogmas with an updated ultimate Christmas-time bucket list. This one is even more special than last year because it’s 25 tasks for 25 days – so let’s see how many you’ve already done, how many you plan to do and how many you tick off by Christmas.
Welcome to Blogmas 2021 everyone! To kick things off (just dipping our toe in the festivities and not plunging right in), I thought I’d start it off with a little welcome post, and some info about how Blogmas is going to work. Looking forward to seeing you all every day throughout the holiday season!
Time is always such a funny thing – it can sometimes feel like it’s going so slowly, and then suddenly you look up and it’s as if it’s raced past. That’s why I’m really glad that I’ve stuck to doing these monthly reflections. Even though it doesn’t help that feeling that time is shooting by way too fast, it does help me slow things down and remember the individual moments. So on that profound note, let’s get right into this month’s favourites shall we??
Hey everyone! Today I give you a bit of a mixed post – a small plea for Blogmas, a chance for you to put in some requests for Blogmas and then some mini life updates I felt like sharing with you all!
Today is just going to be a short post, more of an announcement really, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less important. Oh no, in fact I think this little announcement is one of the most crucial blog posts I’ve done for a while. Blogmas is just a month away so here are all the details if you want to send in submissions for Blogmas 2021 on Tall Blonde Tales!! Keep reading to find out more
Hi everyone! Ashish and I have created the ‘Know Your Buddy’ Tag, a fun tag to encourage blogger collaborations, and to help us all get to know each other a little better. How it works is you pick another blogger to do the tag with, you answer the questions with each other then share and publish your partner’s answers on your blog and vice versa. Then, because we’re all about sharing the love in the Blogosphere, tag another ten people to answer the same questions and keep the tag going! Please keep reading to check out our new tag and the starting nominations!!
Now because it’s the end of the month, you all know what that means?! It’s time for another reflection post on how the last month has been, although it really feels like I just wrote one of these the other day! I hope you enjoy it
