    Yesterday I wrote about how I plan to organise my life with a Bullet Journal. You can read that here!   Today I am going to be giving a helping hand to all the parents out there who have toddlers, and are struggling to think of what to buy for Christmas.

You are running out of space in your house and there’s more stuffed bears than you care to admit. I know how it goes. Do children actually play with stuffed bears? My son prefers to mess around with plug…

    Yesterday I wrote about decorating my Christmas tree. You can read all about it here!   Today I will be veering away from the Christmas theme, just for one day. I recently decided that it was time to get my life on track. My organisational skills have often been lacking and my busy daily schedule can mean that my blog suffers from it.

There’s so much that needs doing, from promoting posts on social media, to writing your content, there’s so much that goes into blogging. I decided that it…

    Yesterday I interviewed a fellow blogger with some Christmas themed questions which you can read here!   Today I will be talking about the most exciting part of Christmas…decorating the Christmas tree. It’s something that I look forward to all year round. Even now, when I have my own place with my own family, I still enjoy going back home to my Mum’s house and helping to decorate the tree for her. I don’t think that tradition will ever stop. You may be thinking, why don’t you just decorate your own tree and grow up like a normal human being. The honest answer to that is that I’m not allowed…

    Blogmas Day Eleven: What To Buy For Your Secret Santa

    In yesterday’s post I shared the story of when Austin met Santa for the first time. If you would like to catch up on that post then click here! Today I am going to be helping you out with your Secret Santa gifts. Secret Santa can be one of the biggest challenges at Christmas. If anyone is unfamiliar with the process, it’s where you pick names out of a hat and then  you have to buy a present for that person.

    Blogmas Day Ten: When Austin Met Santa

    For yesterday’s post I gave a few Elf on the Shelf ideas which you can catch up on here! Today I am going to be sharing with you the story of when Austin met Santa Claus for the very first time. It’s supposed to be a magical moment. Your child experiencing the magic that is Christmas. Children love Santa, and all of the magic that he brings. Austin clearly hadn’t got the message.  Austin has always had a fear of unfamiliar men, and some familiar men when he’s in a particular bad mood. He also seems to have a developed a phobia of beards as well. So as caring and…
