3 Stressless Holiday Tips I'll never do Christmas without | Life & Opinion


As I've already said in posts previous to this one, Christmas can be quite an unnecessarily stressful holiday. From finding the time and inclination to wrap loads of gifts, to worrying whether you're getting the right ones, to getting all the right food components ready and then rushing around hosting all the family and having to complete 8 dishwasher loads before you can even contemplate about going to bed (and don't get me started on those slowly leering January Blues). Its easy to say that for some, especially the hosts, it can all get a little too much.

So although it might be a little early (considering its all but 11 months away), I wanted to share 3 tips I'm taking with me to Christmas 2018 that my family and I did this year that took the pressure out of the holidays.

So as to taunt myself more about the ever closing colder spells and darker evenings, I thought I'd throwback to one of my favourite summer outfits this year.

How to create a Halloween Cobweb Costume | Style


If you know me personally, you'll know the hype around Halloween for me is more exciting than any other holiday. The dressing up, the makeup designs, the films, the decorations... ok ok, I know it sounds like the same kind of awe others experience for many other holidays, but this spook filled day always gets me super excited.
