Christmas is awesome! It’s a super fun time that’s perfect for making memories and capping off the year with some festive fun amongst family, friends and even that special someone. It’s a time of year when we’re encouraged to think about others. Cynics may complain that the spirit of the season has become lost in a fugue of commercialism, self-interest and corporate greed but look around a busy high street at this time of year and you’ll see a whole lot more than empty, soulless commercialism going on. You’ll see couples arm in arm, you’ll see children skipping excitedly down the street and families smiling as they enjoy the multicoloured splendour of the seasonal decorations together. It’s a time of consideration, surprises and togetherness.
It is less than two weeks until Christmas, which is scaring me slightly as I feel very unprepared in general. Even though I bought most of my Christmas presents weeks ago, I still feel there is so much to do before Christmas day. Especially when you’re the cook in the family and have 12 hungry people coming to our house to be fed. Last Christmas I had only lived in my house for just over a month, so we didn’t really own any decorations. We bought a real Christmas tree as it was always tradition when I lived at home to have a real one, but we didn’t have much else other than the tree. This year I had said to my boyfriend that I wanted us to buy lots of decorations so the house would be more festive and for us to put more effort in. I think there is such a big build up to Christmas day and everyone panics about everything that needs to be done and it seems that once the day comes it is kind of a relief.
Do you dream of owning your own horse? While cats and dogs may be popular, for others, they love nothing more than the thought of having a horse to call their own.

Confidence is something that should be inherent in every woman. You should be able to ignore what flaws you perceive yourself to have, and focus on what works best about you and make that just another reason to love yourself. However, there are plenty of women who have trouble seeing beyond what they consider to be their weaknesses. For those women, making real changes and progress can reflect a greater difference than just the results of those changes. It can set a self-confidence chain reaction that simply bursts out of them.
Decorating your home or taking on bigger projects can either be something you love to do or something you hate. You either take real pride in your home, or do those things to ensure that you add value and keep your property maintained.

Not a day passes without endangering life on our beloved little planet. If you’ve ever looked at pictures taken 50 or 100 years ago in your town, you know exactly the feeling. Streets were greener, there were fewer cars and somehow people did look a little less grey in the face. In other words, it can sometimes feel as if some poor lifestyle choices are coming back to bite us in the bum nowadays. Asthma complaints and allergies are at the highest they’ve ever been in urban areas, and it is directly linked to air pollution. More and more individuals are struggling with obesity as a consequence of unnatural diets. And finally, wildlife is disappearing from our surroundings, so much that some children have never seen wild animals in their lives. This cannot carry on. It’s time to take action. It’s time to embrace the green side of life!

Are you planning on going on a date soon? Great, we hope it goes well. You may meet the man of your dreams – if that’s what you are looking for – or at the very least, we hope your date is everything you want it to be. However, you need to stay safe. We’re not saying the guy you met on Tinder is a menace, but you never know. According to UK online dating statistics, 81% of people lie about certain details of themselves on online dating sites. You may have been dishonest yourself, and the picture the guy posted of himself… is he really that good looking? Hint: if the photo looks like Brad Pitt, it probably is Brad Pitt, though the guy probably isn’t. Sorry, to disappoint.
