When searching for Blogmas post inspiration I stumbled across Laurenyloves, and a few years ago she posted the Christmas tag. I had never heard of it before so thought it would make a great addition to my blogmas posts as its all about Christmas (duh). The Christmas tag works like any other blogging tag, you answer pre-set questions and share the answers with your followers/readers.
Once you have read the responses, if you feel lead then please do this yourself too! I wont be tagging anyone as I think it will be quite short notice to get it done before the holiday season is over. But if you want to do it, then please do! Just tag Lauren as thats where I got the post questions from.
Lets get started!Read more
I’m not sure what it is about the Christmas season, but I always feel a sense of gratitude. Being grateful for health, family and the many other blessings we have in life. We should of course be thankful for everyday of our lives and make the most of them all year round. But something about Christmas brings out the best of people. Maybe it’s the reason for the season, maybe its because Christmas is about Jesus and the love he showed when he died for us. I like to think thats why people start being kinder and more loving to one another.
On the flip side, Christmas can be hard for some people. It can be tough as Christmas time is about family and love, and some people don’t have that. For todays Blogmas post I thought we could talk about how we can be more grateful this Christmas, and how we can be truly thankful for the life we are living.Read more
Every winter my skin seems to go into melt down, and my skincare routine usually stops because I get too lazy to do it. It’s like my body can’t cope with the cold weather, and thats one of many reasons why I am convinced I was born in the wrong country. I need sun! The Winter months can be hard on our bodies and it can be hard for us to transition into a new, colder season (unless you live on the Southern Hemisphere that is).
Its so important to look after our bodies and our skin. It’s literally the skin we live in, we should be protecting it and making sure its looked after, just like the rest of our body. Today I’ll be sharing some Winter skincare tips that we should be following all throughout the colder seasons, let’s get started!Read more
As it’s the season of love and giving, I thought it was only right to include a random acts of kindness post for the Holiday season. I believe we should be good, kind people all year round but I know there are a-lot of people who need extra love and support this time of year.
The holiday season can be a really tough time for some people who may not have loved ones to spend it with, or they might not be able to financially afford to celebrate Christmas.
I think the real meaning of Christmas has been forgotten by society, and we need to be reminded what the real reason we celebrate is for. it should be about the gifts and who has a more expensive gift than someone else. It’s about Jesus, family and spreading joy. And thats why I decided to do this post and I hope you will be able to check some of these acts of kindness from this list this year.Read more
Hello Everyone, its officially December and that means its officially the start of Blogmas 2020!!
I didn’t realise how much time and effort goes into blogmas and I cant even image the time it takes for vloggers to do vlogmas. I guess there have been a plus side of coronavirus, because if I wasn’t at home all the time I probably would never have decided to take part in this. Its not too late to start if you want to, there are so many blogmas ideas out there for you to find which can give you ideas on what posts to write for the month of December!Read more
With December around the corner what better time than to share some of my favourite subscription boxes, perfect for Christmas gifts. Subscription boxes are a great and inexpensive gift to give at Christmas or any time of the year really. Alot of subscription box companies create bespoke boxes around Christmas, which I love. And today I’ll be sharing some of my favourites. If you aren’t familiar with what a subscription box is, its a curated box that usually has around 5-10+ items in them. They can be one off boxes or you can subscribe and recieve new boxes every month.
I thought this would be a great time to put out some Christmas content before Blogmas in order to give you a little teaser at what’s to come in the month of December. I’m so excited to be sharing these companies with you today, and hope you consider putting them on your Christmas list or gifting them to someone else.
A simply beautiful life is a new bespoke subscription box service. Their Christmas boxes are available from the 20th November – 22nd November and if you decide to order one, they will be shipped December 1st. They kindly gifted me a box so I could try their products! Everything arrived packaged beautifully and I was so impressed with the quality of the products in the box. The box comes with so many different items which is why I think it will make a perfect Christmas gift!
Each Christmas box includes:
– 1 Customised Starbucks cup (first 20 people get free personalisation)
– DIY Ornament (Multiple ornaments can be ordered where required)
– Sageandclaydesigns pair of earrings (each month they feature a small business)
– Several other surprises!
– $35 for one time purchases (Only $31.50 with my discount code *see below*)
– $30 each month if you sign up for subscription (discount already included in $30 price)
All prices include shipping (US only)
Here is their Instagram so you can keep up to date when they launch!
A Simply Beautiful Life have kindly offered my readers an exclusive discount on their Christmas one time subscription box. Use code ‘December10‘ to get 10% off.
The Degusta Subscription box is a snack box that arrives at your door every month. They fill the boxes with up to 15 products each month, and they’re all new products that are new on the market here in the UK. Not only do they include food items but new drinks too! The great thing about Degusta is that they have a gifting option, which is perfect for Christmas. It allows you to pay in advance for boxes for other people! How cool is that?
The Degusta box is £12.99 a month, which is such a steal considering shipping is included in that price too.
Degusta has kindly given me a discount code for you to use to get £3 off your first order. Use code ‘QZSK0‘ at checkout to save some ££!
If you’re a beauty fanatic like me then you will love this box. The great thing about their boxes is that you can look at previous months they have done, that way you get a feel for what the products included are like. What I really like about their boxes is that they include full sized items. So many companies try to get away with only sending mini versions of products, which sometimes make the boxes not value for money.
Glossy box have various different payment plan options:
– 12 Month subscription plan – £11.75 a month
– 1 Month rolling subscription – £13.25
– 3 Months pay upfront – £38.25
– 6 Months pay upfront – £69.00
– 12 Months pay upfront – £132.00
They also have various gifting options too.
Have you ever had a subscription box? If so what kind are your favourite?
Subscription boxes are really good value for money and such a great idea for those people in your life who are hard to buy for. I hope you liked this little blogmas teaser! Can’t wait to share the rest of my Christmas content in December.
Even though my blog has been around for 5 years, this will be the first Christmas where I will be an active blogger! How exciting. And with that, I had heard the word ‘blogmas’ being thrown around occasionally and did some research into it. If you’re familiar with YouTube and vlogmas, its the same concept. You post a blog post everyday in the lead up to Christmas.
I haven’t decided if I wanted to take part or not, but I thought it would be helpful to post some post ideas if you decide to take part! I’m posting this obviously really early before Christmas, because if you do want to take part I’d start writing the posts now!
So lets get into it!Read more
