Blogmas 2018 Day Two: December Bucket List

Blogmas Winter Bucket List.jpeg

Welcome to Blogmas Day 2!

I’m a list-maker. I feel like making lists is extremely therapeutic, not to mention extremely useful. I make lists for everything. What I need to do in a day or in a week, shopping lists, reading lists, so on and so forth. One of the best lists to make, at least for me, are bucket lists! Of course, the whole idea of bucket lists are super morbid (kick the bucket… like really??) but I don’t take it that way. I see bucket lists more as a list of things I absolutely would love to do!

I first came across the idea of doing a monthly bucket list on Pinterest. I thought I’d give it a try and what better time to do it than in December, when all the Christmas festivities are in full action! December is one of my favourite months as it’s (in my opinion) the coziest month. Everything is so lovely and serene, and everyone’s in the mood to be merry! So without further ado, here’s my December bucket list!

~★~

1. Read a holiday-themed book.

2. Have a holiday film day.

3. Send out my Christmas cards (on time!!)

4. Do some holiday baking.

5. Visit a Christmas market.

6. Decorate a gingerbread house.

7. Light the perfect Christmas candle.

8. Get all my Christmas shopping done.

9. Make s’mores.

10. Get a Christmas-inspired manicure.

11. Have a holiday drink at Starbucks.

12. Rock a red lip.

13. Take a walk in the snow.

14. Have breakfast for dinner.

15. Do a random act of kindness.

16. Try a new hobby.

17. Have a Harry Potter film marathon (because why not?)

18. Build a snowman.

19. Try my hand at creating a festive holiday cocktail.

20. Add a new piece to my Christmas decor.

21. Watch my town’s Santa Claus parade.

22. Make the perfect cup of hot cocoa.

23. Brave the mall for some holiday shopping.

24. Have coffee with a friend.

25. Have a soak in the hot tub.

See you all again tomorrow!

Introducing... Blogmas 2018

The white lights are glowing…The trees are up and decorated…The smell of gingerbread is hanging in the air…

You know what that means. It must be Christmas!!

Tomorrow is the first day of December my darlings! And with that comes the start of a very special blogging tradition that I am extremely excited to say that I will be taking part in this year: Blogmas!

For many, many years, I’ve watched bloggers and youtubers alike doing Blogmas, starting with Zoella all the way back in 2012-2013. I’ve always loved the idea of Blogmas because I feel like it’s a way to not only celebrate the holidays as a community, but also to keep the festive feeling going throughout the season. I really think that Christmas is a holiday that is best spent with other people. But as bloggers can be scattered across the country, or even the globe, it’s nice that Blogmas gives us a way to come together and celebrate as a group!

If you haven’t heard of Blogmas before, I’ll give a little bit of a rundown. Essentially, it’s a post per day for 25 days, starting December 1. The posts can be Christmas or even winter themed. Anything that makes you feel festive or will put other people in the Christmas spirit. Although it’s so much fun, it’s also a ton of work which is why I haven’t attempted it before this year. I really hope that I can make it work while also preparing for my fall finals but if it does work out, I’ll definitely try to make this a new yearly tradition!

My very first post will be posted tomorrow morning at 10am, and the others will follow the same schedule.

I cannot wait to start uploading my posts! I’ll keep an updated list of all the links to my Blogmas posts here, as a quick and easy reference guide for readers (that’s you!)

See you tomorrow :)
