BUDGET FRIENDLY CHRISTMAS GUIDE



You don't have to be a Christmas lover *cough, cough... me* to feel nervous about blowing a ton of hard-earned cash on Christmas presents. I personally began to prepare myself mentally around the start of October for the amount of money I could realistically spend around this time. So here I am to help share some of my tips for not panicking halfway through December when your bank account is less than Holly Jolly.

A LUSH CHRISTMAS LIST

The loveliness of loving all things Christmas-themed can be extremely overwhelming at times. I go into serious envy mode whenever I see someone else with anything I feel I need for the season.


One specific company I lust over is, of course, LUSH. My word, they know what their mission statement is in this world. I have never once had a bad experience, in the store or with a product. That kind of consistency is extremely difficult to maintain and I greatly appreciate their hard work.


As I love all their products all year long I, naturally, am drawn to this perfect shop the minute I catch a whiff of any Christmas scented beauty. Sadly I no longer have a bath - actually sob if I think about it too hard - so bath bombs are not something I forsee myself buying in the near future. Although I have been tempted to rent a hotel room just so I can away my troubles for a few hours.

BLOGTOBER DAY 2




Told ya I'd be back! And today's topic is one of my favorites because I absolutely adore everything about the current season we're in. If I could live in a full year of Fall weather, well you wouldn't see me complaining AT ALL.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

BLOGTOBER DAY 1



Not going to lie to you, I wasn't sure I wanted to come back to blogging at all in recent weeks. Working full time, driving a long commute, and just generally feeling uninspired has been weighing heavily on me and I'm just downright exhausted.

 The truth is I don't know how much longer I will continue to blog. It may have been just a phase in my life or I may come back to it every now and again. I can't hold myself to being a regular blogger - clearly - and that's been something I've really learned to accept.

I am, however, going to make my best effort to do Blogtober. And this is how I'm twisting the rules. There may be posts published consecutively, one right after the other. Or there may be a few days in between the posts.
