Can you believe what day it is today, that’s right, it’s Christmas Day! I hope you have all had a lovely day, opened all your presents and stuffed your face with amazing Christmas food. Don’t worry, I’m not writing this post on Christmas Day! It’s pre-written and scheduled because I need to spend the day with my family. I thought I would write this post as a reflection of December and Blogmas.
I’m actually really proud of myself for completing Blogmas! It wasn’t easy, having a full-time job and trying to have fun and relaxed weekends did make it hard. I have put in a lot of work and I am really proud of what I’ve achieved. I would like to just say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me by reading my blog throughout December. I hope to continue creating great content for you all!
It is officially CHRISTMAS EVE. I hope you have had a wonderful day and are ready for Christmas tomorrow! It does mean though that this is my last post of Blogmas, I know a sad moment! To finish off Blogmas 2017, I thought I would round up the bloggers that I have been loving this December. I did do this same post for Blogmas 2016, I really enjoyed summing up my favourite posts of December so I thought I would do the same for this year!
Some of these girlies have done Blogmas themselves or have done some great Winter/Christmas themed posts. Shall we begin with my 8 Blogs of Blogmas?

With the nights getting colder and darker, it feels nice to cosy up on the sofa and watch a movie. I am definitely a massive fan of these nights, it’s nice to wind down and just relax, there’s variety of different ways you can do this! I don’t know about you but Winter just screams nights in. You don’t want to go outside because it’s already pitch black and it’s freezing cold. It’s definitely a must during these colder nights.
I thought I would share with you how I typically spend my Winter night in, what screams comfort to me!
I am pretty much always on the search for new products, I’m not sure about you but isn’t it lovely trying a new product every so often. I especially like this if they’re on some kind of offer or even a gift from someone. Recently I was gifted Shower Foam Pink Melon from Bilou, a German beauty range created by Bibi. I’ve heard so many great things about this brand as well as their products, so I was very excited to try it!

Today officially marks the first day of Winter! Even though I always thought it was the beginning of November. Winter has always been my favourite season as it includes both my birthday and Christmas. There’s definitely more that I love about Winter than any other seasons, I’m not sure about you but it always feels super special and magically. To mark the first day of Winter, I thought it would be good to share with you 50 Things I Love About Winter.
Are you interested? Well, let’s begin;
If you haven’t already noticed, I love tags, especially those that I’ve been tagged in by another blogger. I’ve really been struggling to plan and write content for Blogmas 2017, I hope you are all enjoying my posts and I can not believe there are only four more days left. Today’s post wasn’t actually planned until a couple of days ago after I was tagged by the lovely Hannah from What Hannah Wrote in the Christmas “Would You Rather?” Tag.
Check out her post here to see how she answered her questions. Shall we get started?
Christmas, there are things to love and there are things to hate! Just like any holiday during the year. This time of year is definitely not all about unwrapping presents and eating all the food in the world, there are family dramas, presents not turning up and the mad rush at the supermarket, to name but a few things.
Today I thought I would express a few of my pet peeves when it comes to Christmas.

I don’t know about you, but over the last couple of months, Netflix has brought out some amazing series! I have become addicted to a range of series, ones that I just have to watch all in one go because they are so addicting. It’s crazy how much I’ve watched on Netflix, it’s my go-to if I want to watch something. I have it on in the background all the time, as well as in the evenings, I have to watch an episode before going bed.
Netflix are killing it recently, so I thought I would share with you my favourite series that I have watched in the last couple of months. There’s a few that I’ve now watched and thought it was worthy of a post, especially with it being Winter. It’s lovely sitting on the sofa, with a blanket, maybe even cuddling up with your loved one and watching a movie on Netflix, or even binge-watching one of their many series.
Right, shall we begin!?

It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was introducing you to November’s Reading Challenge, it’s now time to look ahead to December. This month’s Reading Challenge is Festive Reads! This is a very fitting reading prompt with Christmas just around the corner, if I’m honest I don’t think I’ve read that many festive related books. It’s one genre that I’m too keen on if I’m honest.
It’s great to be apart of this community and it’s great chatting with everyone on the Facebook page. Here we have some great conversations and are able to talk books! Right, let’s get on with December’s Reading Challenge.

I don’t know about you but I’m definitely feeling less productive during the Winter, it’s cold, dark and horrible. You have that feeling of, it’s so warm under this duvet, I want to stay here. I am definitely starting to feel it but I’ve still got so much to do! My workload has been increasing every day and I need to have productive days to actually complete the work.
Today I thought I would share a couple of ways to stay productive this Winter. Now some of these I take on board myself, others not so much.
