It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
my loves, its time again: Christmas! not quite, its still November but Christmas decor sneaked their way into shops, people started their Christmas shopping, festive treats are available at any store and Starbucks is back at it again with their toffee nut latte. I also have started to sort through my Christmas decor and started shopping for new decorations too to get this show on the road. its my favourite time of year, also content wise and this year I truly took time out to plan ahead. with work up until the 20th, celebrations with friends and family and my urge to enjoy the period as much as I can, I still want to get as much content up as I can and this is the introduction to it. so brew a tea, get your Christmas jumper out and buckle up, it’s about to get very festive up in here. if you want to wait till December, just come back and binge read all I have been cooking up for far. I can’t wait.
switching things up
I was asked on Instagram to do a post about how I change up my content as the seasons change. to be fair, it’s not always easy. I cherish every season and love the change it brings. it gives me the change to be seasonal with my content too and to be true, it sometimes makes me want to go overboard. since I started blogging, I got even more invested in seasonal activities and specialties. I like to plan ahead and mindmap ideas I want to become reality. whilst winter content starts after the new year for me, Christmas is all about feeling festive, gifting and holiday fashion. choosing fitting probs and locations is a must for me and since I started using Lightroom, I like to create presets fitting for the season and general colour theme and vibe I want to create and the Christmas one is the one I used on the photos here and I love it.
christmas time is truly beautiful but it’s also very stressful. it comes with many parties to attend, shopping to do whilst keeping up with normal life too but I’m in high hopes to manage to be productive but also have enough time to just enjoy. I want to bake cookies, go to all Christmas markets, go on long winter walks, enjoy my time at home as well as celebrate with friends and family. I already have plans to watch a show with my boyfriends family, attend a festive afternoon tea, have a gift giving with my friends and my work Christmas party is coming up too. december truly should be longer.
my idea always is to get posts up twice a week and over the past year, Tuesday and Thursday seem to work very well with me which is why I want to keep that schedule up with a mix of gift guides as well as other festive posts. I know not everyone is a big gift guide lover but I love creating them and I love reading them. they are just so festive and truly mean Christmas has arrived in the blogging world. because I don’t like putting them up very close to Christmas there will be a few more around mid-November and I hope you don’t mind. it’s not all gonna be gifting around here…
countdown to Christmas
if you have been around for a while, you might now that I used to do a series called Sunday Mood which was a weekly roundup going up every Sunday. I stopped doing them when I wasn’t feeling the series anymore and wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue doing them. I honour of my Sunday Moods and because I just love Christmas, I will be doing a Countdown to Christmas every Sunday rounding up the week, what I was up to and I think it will be very fun to write and look back on. if there’s anything you want me to talk about in particular, let me know.
