我越老，我越相信新年'resolutions' in the traditional sense. This is mainly because the burnout effect come February of said 决议案 is generally all too real for me to believe setting 决议案 actually works. We all make such a conscious effort to stick to our 决议案 in January that it'具有讽刺意味的是，在接下来的11个月中维持下去！
所以今年一月，第二年'我决定为自己设定积极的目标，以改善我的健康和自我保健意识。'我更有可能实现和享受。虽然这些内容包含一些阅读挑战（请在Goodreads上找到我 这里 ！）甚至只是出于娱乐目的而开始收集图钉，我以为我'd专注于我自己的美容积极目标，我认为任何人都可以应用和实现这一目标，以便在2019年获得更快乐，更自信的自我感觉！
圣诞 day is soon upon on to so today I thought I'd share with you how I have enjoyed decorating for 圣诞 今年是我当中那些讨厌的人之一，他们张开双臂拥抱欢乐的季节，每一秒钟都包起来！这意味着Pinterest板，配色方案和专用于礼品包装用品的完整抽屉！
I didn't always use to be this 'full on' 圣诞 wise, however over the years I have found it's a new way to embrace the joy of 圣诞 as decorating provides a cosy and homely atmosphere that really lifts dark evening. Below you will find out how I decorated my dining table this year and see my favourite cosy corner where I display my Chrismas mug collection - yes, that is a thing!
In general I love interior design; from picking up ornaments and homeware to add to my home to designing a new space. So when 圣诞 comes along one of my main focuses', probably as equally important to present buying, is decorating my home for 圣诞.
So this year my main focus was to create a full-on festive and grown-up 圣诞 dining room, from looking on Pinterest for 圣诞 table design ideas to figuring out a colour scheme that wasn't made up of just a single colour.
From contemporary to rustic and even kitsch there are endless 圣诞 theme choices. However this year I decided to go for a classic look with a colour scheme of red, green and silver/white. This was all centred around my new dining table from 生活家具，他很乐意与您联系，并为我提供了一件家具。经过近7年的木制摇篮式玻璃桌面桌之后，绝对是时候进行升级了，因此我决定进行一些类似但更精致，长大的事情。
So with a beautiful new table, which is definitely the focus of the room, I decided to plan my 圣诞 table layout around it. First I added height and symmetry with an artificial 圣诞 tree in the centre which I decorated with small red ribbons and lights to pair my red and green colour scheme together. Then looking to Pinterest for inspiration I decided to actually lay my table, starting with inexpensive metallic red charger plates and layering them up with classic white plates, side plates an bowls and topping with a silver or marble effect bauble!
As you can see, while predominated white I loosely stuck to my red and green theme displaying my favourite 圣诞 mugs that contained these colours. I also added what I like to call 'touches of magic' with a beautiful wire lit glass dome lamp and some real wax LED pillar candles that add a little sparkle and glow on an evening.
圣诞 Mug Collection
What I love about this little corner of my dining room is how the mixture of stylish pieces works with more kitsch orgaments, especially the cute 圣诞 mugs and little trees. If you're a fellow lover of 圣诞 I would strangely highly recommend starting a 圣诞 mug collection. I started a few years ago now, collecting them both to display and use and over the years I've collected so many that I know will treasure forever!
This also creates a nostalgic element even as an adult! Already when I unwrap my 圣诞 mug collection to display each year, thoughts of when and where I bought each mug arise. It also lets me indulge in picking up some extra special mugs that I have always wanted - such as the special gilded Anthropologie monogram mug.
全面装修我的餐厅，尤其是我的餐厅 华丽的新桌子, my home is feeling more festive than ever both and I now can't wait to show it off to friends and family and enjoy my time off over the 圣诞 period.

Do you decorate beyond the 圣诞 tree? Let me know!
This will be my last post before 圣诞 Day so I want to wish you all a happy and safe holiday period, filled with rest, love and happiness.
For me, the lead up to 圣诞 is possibly more special than the day itself. Even as an adult I try to encompass the festive feelings and magical joy 圣诞 can bring to even the most boring of days, by actively seeking and setting time aside for all things festive.
今年我'm working my way through 圣诞 movies I've yet to watch, more on that later, discovering new festive reads and even starting a 圣诞 vinyl collection. Take a peek at my ever growing 圣诞 图书helf to discover a few treasures and find out my favourite 圣诞 movie of 2018, below!
Like many, a new year for me means new plans and goals, so what better time to up my stationery game with foiled motivational stickers, a new planner and basically anything that will look pretty on my desk. But with 圣诞 just behind me I personally don'不想花太多钱，因此是我今年的第一份eBay特价商品！在这里，您会发现仅以99便士购买的一些晶圆文具！
我不't know about you but 圣诞 is one of my busiest times of the year and although I love it I require daily downtime to stay on top of it all and enjoy it!
Of course, sticking on a 圣诞 movie is one way to relax while saying in the spirit of things but for me, I also like to combine my love of reading with this special time of year! This is something that I started a few years ago, seeking out festive reads instead of my go-to thriller genre.
So today I thought it would be a nice idea to share my own collection of festive reads and put together a 圣诞 reading list that not only could you pick and choose from yourself but you could also gift others, especially if you know a fellow 圣诞 fanatic! Below you will find a good mix of reads, from a book for all ages, something that will prompt nostalgic memories of 圣诞 as a child, a festive cookbook with a twist and even a short story from author, John Green - who knew he'd written a 圣诞 tale!
对我来说，十二月'Christmas' as I find the lead up just as good, if not better, as the day itself. The sparkle of 圣诞 lights both indoor and out, along with feel-good adverts about getting together and giving back adds a lightness to my days. I also feel 圣诞 is the season where regressing in age is fully acceptable, so I fully intend to be sat by my 圣诞 tree feeling presents through their wrapping paper while watching Arthur 圣诞 and eating too many chocolates in the days leading up to 大日子. Actually, isn'有趣的是我们怎么称呼它'the big day'?
但是我'我在这里除了庆祝事实's的十二月将与您分享下个月您将在Makeup Savvy上看到的内容，并聊聊我将要起床的原因...因为我'm excited!
