With that being said, continue reading to discover how to get yourself properly party read this festive Christmas season.

Treat Yourself To Some Festive Retail Therapy

Shopping on the high street is now so much more than nipping into individual shops to browse the aisles and clothing rails. 

Nowadays, shopping is an experience in itself and is one of the most perfect ways to immerse yourself in all things festive and get yourself mentally ready for Christmas. Nip into a coffee shop and treat yourself to a spiced cinnamon latte and take yourself on a walk through the streets of the city to absorb all the sights, sounds, and feelings of the impending Christmas celebration. 

Pamper Yourself 

Whether you have the time and the extra cash to take yourself off for a spa and sauna day away from your local area or not, there are a plethora of other ways to pamper your body and your mind that are relatively affordable and incredibly effective. 

One fabulous idea to ensure you are fully prepared for the Christmas party season is to book yourself in at a professional and established beauty salon, such as, for a course of laser hair removal or even a full body massage. 

Declutter Your Home

There may not be a better way to prepare yourself for Christmas than to set aside an entire day to dedicate to cleaning, tidying, and generally decluttering your home. 

Naturally, you are no doubt going to be in possession of a range of new items from Christmas gifts from your family members, friends, and loved ones and so, to ensure you actually have room to truly enjoy your new presents, clearing a space would be exceedingly prudent. 

Additionally, there are a surprising number of benefits to one’s mental health and wellbeing when you spend some time decluttering and tidying your home. 

Such benefits include, but are in no way limited to:

  • An overall increased level of productivity and efficiency

  • Social confidence when Christmas visitors and guests enter your home

  • Inspiration for interior design as you declutter

  • A significant reduction in anxiety and stress levels

  • Mindfulness and meditation whilst quietly organising your home

Other ways to get Christmas and Christmas party-ready this winter include ensuring your food and drink shopping list is completed in good time, saving money for presents and supplies in the weeks leading up to the big day, invest in a wall calendar to properly keep track of your social events and post your cards in plenty of time.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
