The Art of Relaxing on Holiday

Hi everyone! This week I’m sharing some fun suggestions for embracing the art of relaxation, inspired by my little holiday on the beach where I’ve been reading, enjoying a few cocktails and maybe getting sunburnt. I hope you enjoy it!

Blogging Collab with Third Culture Kid – adjusting to living in another country!

Today I’m doing a collab with the lovely Third Culture Kid, where we’ll be sharing our experience and tips of adjusting to other countries. Both of us have definitely had some experience with moving overseas, and adjusting to another country can be quite a process so we thought we’d share that whole journey with you, as well as some tips that we picked up along the way. Personally, I’ll be sharing my experience of adjusting to life in England.

Blogmas Day 17 – Surviving Christmas alone

Today I thought I’d take off the bauble-tinted glasses around Christmas and talk about something a little more … whatever the opposite of merry is? Christmas can truly be a magical time of year, filled with so many sparkly, joyous things and activities, but what I think we often tend to forget is part of what makes these moments so special is that we spend them with our loved ones. However, what are you meant to do during a festive period that is all about doing things with your close friends and family when you’re alone for Christmas? That’s what we’re going to chat about in this blog post!

Blogmas Day 16 – Hosting your own Christmas Cosyfest

I suddenly realised that I haven’t talked about any sort of Christmas party/celebration ideas or tips. While I could always talk about Christmas organisation, I think that kind of takes the jingle out of a Christmas carol when you’re talking about lists and planning… sooo a fun way to get around that I thought would be to talk about how you could host your own fun Christmas event. So I can chat about something organisational, and you readers can also get some inspiration if you’re still at a loss for a fun way to host people for Christmas this year. One of the events my Disney society hosted was Christmas cosyfest, and it was such a fun event that I thought it would be fun to share the details in case you decide to host one yourself. Not only is it really easy to do, but it’s also a super relaxed and fun Christmas event, so for those looking for event inspiration … here is How to Host a Christmas Cosyfest.

Blogmas Day 5 – Tips for getting into the Holiday Spirit

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! 

Adulting – is it as hard as it sounds?

Being an adult supposedly means doing annoying things like taxes and not having time to do what you love, but that isn’t usually the case. Being an adult, at least how I define it, is being able to look after yourself. It means you can live independently without worrying that things will fall to pieces and doing that isn’t too much hard work. Doing that just involves learning a few skills that can help you be an adult while still maintaining all the fun-loving things that you did when you didn’t have to worry about things like budgets and dishes. Today I share 10 adulting tips – skills that are essential to helping you cope in the big scary world!
