Favorite Holiday Drinks


I tend to get excited more for seasonal drinks than the food (probably due to my obsession with coffee). I love minty flavors, so I enjoy seeing all the peppermint options that are offered during the holiday season!

One thing you’re not going to see on my list? Eggnogg (sorry, I’ve never liked it). I probably should try it again as it’s been a while since I’ve tasted it. I have seen many vegan, dairy-free versions of eggnog that have caught my eye as well-I might need to look into those!

Having a Blue Christmas


Christmas is an exciting time filled with joyous moments with family and friends. People are excitedly putting up Christmas decorations, giving gifts, baking cookies, and singing along to Christmas songs. With everyone else having such a picture perfect time, the holidays can be difficult for people who are not-whether it be for mental illness, the loss of a loved one, financial troubles, having to work for Christmas, etc.

This particular post is going to focus on losing a loved one, but it’s okay to feel blue around the holidays for other reasons too! You can’t help when you’re feeling down, and all of the expectations to enjoy the holiday season can be overwhelming. Just remember to hang in there!

Christmas Movies to Watch This Year


I have to admit-I’m terrible at keeping up with shows and movies on Netflix (I know, I know-I’m probably the only one). I’m normally stuck on one show with multiple seasons, so I neglect watching anything else. This year, however, I’m going to try to get into the holiday spirit with a few Netflix movies!

From what I can tell, it looks like Netflix has already added a few new holiday movies this year. My mom absolutely loves Christmas movies, so I’m sure she’ll enjoy watching these with me! Plus, it’s been snowy and freezing outside, so it’s the perfect weather to stay indoors and watch Christmas movies (with a cup of warm hot chocolate).

Gift Ideas for Pets


As the proud owner of both a cat and dog, I wanted to share gift ideas for pets!

I treat my pets like people and love to wrap up a few gifts for them to open for Christmas. When I showed my cat, Tigger, how to open her gifts, she quickly learned to tear through the wrapping paper to find her present inside. This year will be my dog’s first Christmas with me, and I’m planning on wrapping up his gifts as well. He’s such an excitable dog, so I think Scooby will be excited about it (as long as he doesn’t get spooked by the crinkling noise wrapping paper makes)!
