WOW, It’s December! Which means it is almost Christmas! I don’t think I have been this excited for Christmas in about 5 years…. but I am SO excited to see all my friends and family this year, I haven’t been home since April 🙁 🙁
This year I am attempting BLOGMAS!! Blogging everyday until Christmas will be such a challenge for me but will be something lovely to look back on!
I am really looking forward to reading everyones blogmas editions! I hope you will follow me on my journey!
My Very Special Advent Calendar #CharityAdventCalendar
I decided to do this as my first post today because I believed a lot of people would be showing their calendars, whether they are chocolate ones or beauty. Sooooo, above is my advent calendar!
Can’t see anything? That’s right, I have decided to not buy one this year.
This year I felt I just didn’t really need an advent calendar, so I decided to give the money I would have spent to Winston’s Wish. The charity is a lovely lovely charity that supports children who may have lost a parent or sibling. Losing someone you love is so so hard any time of the year but particularly is highlighted at Christmas. Saying this, I felt they needed my money more than myself having a few chocolates or beauty products!
Losing my nan earlier this year had such a big impact on me, and really put things into perspective, I honestly can’t imagine how a child must feel during the horrible feeling of bereavement, I imagine they are so so confused, utterly lost and devastated. Which is where Winston’s Wish come in….
“My £5 can pay for the candles WW use at their candlelight ceremony at their residential groups – helping each child to share a special memory about the person who died.”

Maybe you could donate to a charity of your choice? 🙂
Thank you for reading my first BLOGMAS post, and I will see you tomorrow!
