Christmas is soooooo close now it’s quite terrifying, but I’ve loved the build-up to Christmas this year and all the fun of doing Blogmas this year. And… in a few more days I wont be popping up in your inboxes everyday with another post so you’ll get a nice long break from me too to enjoy the rest of December.

Since you seemed to like the Therabox unboxing I did a short while ago, and one of the best ways to deal with stress is to try take a beat and focus on self-care, I thought I’d combine the two
Hi everyone! Today I’m trying out an unboxing post with a series of self-care boxes I got during my first year of university. Sadly I was in South Africa when they arrived, so I’m catching up on all the fun unboxing and self-care. I hope you enjoy it!!
It’s so important to practice self-care, especially during Christmas time. Amidst all the merriment, you must take the time to nurture yourself mentally and physically. We can’t all be rays of sunshine all the time and Christmas does take a lot of effort and energy. So today, I’m going to share a couple of ways that you can practice self-care this Christmas, so you can look after yourself and keep the crazy at bay, as well as a special surprise at the end so be sure to keep reading!
