How to have a more Sustainable Christmas

Hi everyone. Now, this year I have become more environmentally conscious – though I am by no means perfect now, in fact from it. Even so, here are some of my ideas of how to have a lower waste and lower impact Christmas, even if you just use one of these tips, it would have an impact.

Rather than buying from large brands you could buy from smaller businesses and local shops, it also makes your gifts more personal and unique! Another … Continue reading How to have a more Sustainable Christmas

How to Celebrate your Birthday at home

Hello everyone! How is everyone doing? I actually had my Birthday earlier this week and I though it might be fun and useful to tell you how I celebrates, and how you could celebrate… considering these funny times.

Secondly, celebrate with your love ones in any way that you can. Whether you are lucky enough to be with your family, or if you can phone or facetime your friends. … Continue reading How to Celebrate your Birthday at home

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas – Blogmas Day 3

A White Christmas is one of my favourite Christmas songs, it is just a classic and just gets you in the cosy Christmas mood! I can really relate to the lyrics: “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know” because when I was a young child I was in the states where it snowed almost every Christmas and I took it for granted and I look back and think about how special it was! Now I live in the UK, we almost never get snow on Christmas though we do get some around Christmas … Continue reading I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas – Blogmas Day 3
