Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a magical holiday surrounded by loved ones. I hope you get everything you wanted, whether it’s material or not. I hope you have an amazing day full of laughter, family, cheer, and, of course, chocolate!

I know the holidays can be hard sometimes. Maybe something happened around the holidays, you’ve had a difficult year, or you’re missing someone this Christmas. It’s okay if your holiday isn’t magical. Just because one Christmas feels off, doesn’t mean that they all will be. I hope you’re okay this year, and remember to hang in there!

For today’s post, I wanted to briefly share my favorite activities on Christmas Day. I mentioned a few in my A Cozy Winter Tag post, but I thought I would expand and include a few more. This isn’t a long or unique list, but I hope you enjoy the post and can relate!

Sustainable for the Holidays

Christmas is one of the busiest shopping times of the year. While this is good for businesses, it can be bad for the environment. Fortunately, there are a few ways to keep your waste down as you shop and participate in holiday events. In this post, I have compiled a few ideas to spread cheer AND sustainability this Christmas!

I have happily seen a few other bloggers I follow post sustainable Christmas posts (or sustainable posts in general), so I have featured a few of my favorites throughout this post as well!

A Cozy Winter Tag

Happy December everyone!

Now that I have most of my projects completed for school, I should have more time to blog this month. While I love the idea of Blogmas, I don’t think I could keep up with it unless I planned beforehand (I am participating in Vlogmas though if you enjoy watching YouTube!). That being said, I do want to post a few festive posts this year, and I thought I would start it off with Jackie’s (The Vibrant Dreamer) Cozy Winter Tag! It’s the first tag she’s created herself, and it’s perfect for the holiday season!

What I’m Grateful For

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a great day, whether you celebrate the holiday or not. Personally, I am beyond excited to get three days off from work and school, although I do have plenty of projects to keep working on!

I never was a huge fan of Thanksgiving, especially since the focus always seemed to be on the food. Even prior to becoming a vegetarian, I wasn’t overly fond of most of the food options (I know, I know-I’m very picky). Thanksgiving isn’t completely about the food, however, and I do love the opportunity to consider what I’m thankful for!

In the future, I would like to get in more of a routine of writing down what I’m grateful for. Even if it’s small things that might be overshadowed by the negative events that happened that day, there’s always something to be thankful for! I think it’s beneficial to remember that on both a daily and a yearly basis. The daily things might be meeting up with a friend for coffee or a good tip I received, and the yearly ones are the ones that happen regularly throughout the year. This post includes some of the things I have been thankful for in 2019.

Trying Paperless Post

We only have a month and a half left in 2019, which means holidays are right around the corner. I already hear Christmas music when I go out shopping, and I know many of you are getting in the holiday spirit by setting up decorations, drinking peppermint mochas, watching holiday movies, and sending out holiday cards!

A few months ago, my brother was complaining to my mom about cards because they clutter his apartment and he throws them away afterwards. He does not like to send out cards for this reason, which comes as a huge disappointment to my mom who absolutely loves to receive cards. As someone who tries to be as sustainable as possible, I can understand my brother’s point, but I still feel like cards are a great way to brighten someone’s day and spread holiday cheer. When I learned about Paperless Post, I was excited to try it out! With Thanksgiving next week, I thought this would be the perfect post to get you ready for the holidays!

DISCLAIMER: In exchange for a review, I received coins to try and review Paperless Post. This blog post does include my honest opinions, and I only accept exchanges like this from products/services I am interested in trying.
