Christmas shopping, When is too Early?!

Just how early is too early? I mean people save all year round for Christmas with these companies that take your money and give you vouchers in November, I’m not talking about that though. I’m talking about when is it actually okay to start buying Christmas presents. Personally in my case it depends on a few factors and I’m pretty shop most people will agree. Space¬† It all depends on the amount of space you have where you live. I mean we have a one bedroom flat with no storage so it’s a little more difficult for us, yet we still manage to have three boxes worth of present stored away already for Christmas 2018! They are packed away so they won’t be a pain and get in the way, which is the main thing. If you have a lot of storage space wherever you live you might be in…

#FoodBankAdvent ~ All Year Round!

You may have seen the Christmas #FoodBankAdvent campaign. Check out these posts from Mattscafe, KatyKicker and UKMoneyBloggers. However I’m here to tell you something else, just like a dog; the homeless or people in need aren’t just for Christmas. In fact they are all year round, who would have thought it? Don’t get me wrong, I did the food bank advent and loved it because I got all festive. The previous few years though I’ve been donating to a homeless shelter down the road and never thought about talking about it. Now that it’s out there though I want to take the opportunity to really talk about it and not just forget about it after Christmas, although I hope it happens every Christmas! So you know how there happens to be like 365 days in the year? When I was younger I thought there was like 20 or something so…

DIY gift boxes, the necessity this Christmas.

I love a bit of DIY, even if I’m not very good at it. That doesn’t stop me from doing it and it’s the thought that counts. I wanted to give people something different this year which is why I went on the search for something unique, which would stand out on the day. I found these amazing, rustic boxes from ZacSmart! I’m a rather creative person and I have to say these treasure boxes are amazing for that. I’ve been making a few hampers this year and although they are perfect for big things, they’re not so great when you have a few smaller gifts for people. I don’t want to just chuck them in a cardboard box so I decided to go with these treasure boxes. The great thing about these treasure boxes is the fact that they can be upcycled as well. I wanted to spray some…

The Geeky Guy Gift Guide This Christmas!

So I’m a geek and I probably always will be! Nothing better than knowing who you are and I know I can fully embrace it, with help of course. Everything Christmas I will have a nice long list and a lot of the bits on them will be geek centered, this year is no different! It just so happens I already got a few of the bits I’m talking about and I really wanted to show you! So if you’re stuck and have no idea what to get your star wars loving husband, joker of a brother or wizard friend look no further. If you haven’t heard of Paladone then you’re in for a treat! They sell so much geeky wonders and I’m surprised I haven’t spent a fortune on there before!¬† There’s something for everyone, no matter the budget! Let’s kick it off with a spell shall we! Harry…

The Photo Booth you need this Christmas!

So I love having a play around at Christmas, who doesn’t. Endless selfies, the occasional pea flying across the table and monopoly that may end ugly. Everyone loves having a laugh at Christmas and it’s the best time of year for it. Last year we decided to give Cards Against Humanity a try and loved it, this year we wanted something a little more hands on, something that we could all get involved with! I had a look around and after I got chatting with Paladone they decided to send me out this wicked photo booth for a try and to see if it would be worthy to star in our Christmas day antics. I had no idea what to expect so when it arrived I was over the moon and couldn’t wait to dive on in! On a side note, if you’re stuck on what to get a geeky…
