December Bucket List | Blogmas Day 1

Hiya Everyone and Happy December!!

Well, *Deep breath* here we go, Blogmas day 1! I’ve been considering taking part in Blogmas since June and with a lot of planning and preparation, It’s finally time! I’m 100% feeling the Christmas spirit and I am so excited to get started! For those of you who don’t know what Blogmas is, it’s when you post on your blog everyday in December up until Christmas eve. So strap yourself in and prepare for 24 days of festive posts!! I’m going to kick Blogmas off with a December bucket list so let’s do it!

(Pin me!!)

Decorate the house

One of my favourite things about the Christmas period is decorating the house! I love all things festive and there’s nothing better than putting some Christmas music on and jazzing up the place! This is something I love to do at the start of the month so that I can make the most out of it over the festive season!

Have a white Christmas

I absolutely love snow and I think it just makes Christmas that little bit more special! It’s the start of November when I’m writing this and it is absolutely FREEZING so fingers crossed!!

Bake some Christmas treats

Christmas time is eating time, am I right?! There are so many amazing festive foods that I look forward to eating all year round (yes, I am that sad) but I am always wanting to make my own snacks as I see so many amazing recipes on Pinterest! There will be a post in Blogmas where I will make some Christmassy foods so look forward to that!

Make some Christmas DIYs

Similar to the Christmas baking, I really want to make some DIYs that I have found on Pinterest! I think it will be fun and just a something different so expect a DIY post coming soon this Blogmas!

Complete Blogmas

This is the goal that I want to complete the most! I have thought about doing Blogmas since I started my first Blog in 2014, so I think it’s about time I did it! I just really want to finish the whole month though!!

Spend time with family and friends

My favourite thing about Christmas is getting to spend lot’s of time with family and friends doing different things! From Christmas nights out to meals with the family, i just love getting to see so many of my favourite people and making new memories!

Christmas shopping

This year I would like to be more prepared with my shopping as every year I’m always rushing around last minute so I started planning presents in November and buying things over a longer period of time so I’m not as stressed or spend as much money all at once!

What would you like to do this month?? Comment below!

Well that’s my bucket list for the month of December! Thanks so much for reading and MERRY CHRISTMAS! I’ll see you all tomorrow for day 2 of Blogmas!

    What a fab achievable little list Rachel! I definitely hope I achieve all these as well in December especially completing Blogmas and I’d love a white Christmas – but I live in probably the least likely place in the UK that’ll get snow! Ha ha

    Love this!
    Completing blogmas is definitely on my list too! I’ve been busy making and planning things so hopefully it’ll all be fine!
    The hard part will be doing a lot of stuff around working this month, but I really want to be able to relax at some point, so this is my motivation haha!

    I can’t believe you are so prepared and have been planning blogmas content since June, I only decided to get involved last night, and will be writing each post the night before it is published. I wish I was as organised as you! I look forward to reading all of your Christmas content <3

    Great post! This is my first year doing Blogmas and I wish I’d thought about it back in June, I would be a lot more organised! I can’t wait to make Christmas treats ❤️ I plan on making gingerbread men and a gingerbread house!

    Hey Rachel,

    I saw this post on a tweet earlier today, and it saved my bacon!! lol. I had written another blogmas post for today – but realised that I wouldn’t be able to complete it today! So I needed another post for today, and for the life of me, I just felt like I couldn’t draw any more inspiration. Then I found your post, and I finally managed to get a post out! So thank you so much!

    Merry Christmas, and happy Blogmassing! lol
