Tips for Blissful Holidays

Happy holidays Friends!

Hoping your holidays are full of bliss, love, and delicious happenings so far! 🙂

With the holiday season in full swing, I wanted to share some things with you that I always do this time of year to help make sure I’m on the best possible path for an incredible holiday season & New Year.  It’s all about simplicity, balance, and getting inspired!  Here we go:

1)  I LOOOVE me a paper calendar.  I always have one on my desk, and I use it for notes, appointments, and creative doodling.  I always get a new calendar in December and make a date with myself to go through and write in it for the coming year…  special dates, notes, goals, and all that good stuff.

It’s a simple and empowering ritual that gives me a clear vision for the year to come, as well as time to think about and focus on what my heart TRULY wants.

2)  I buy thoughtful gifts online in advance and keep it simple.  I HEART Hay House for books, card decks, magnets and more.  Check out their “Stocking Stuffer” section for thoughtful ideas.  I can always find gifts that will inspire here!  When I go to parties, I always like to bring bottles of San Pellegrino.  They’re unexpected and always welcome (not to mention, they’re glam and super affordable!).

3)  I schedule a holiday party for one – ME!  I always set aside an evening at home alone the week before Christmas.  I take a long bath, read, enjoy a glass of vino, and basically do whatever I want for an entire night.  Talk about bliss!  I tune out holiday stress, forget about obligations, and rock yummy oversized flannel PJ’s! This really puts me in a fab place and preps me to sail into the new year feeling renewed.

I recommend putting this on your calendar at least a week in advance, making necessary arrangements, and letting your loved ones know that you’ll be busy with a very important date that night. 😉

No matter how you celebrate this season, be sure to take time for you.  Simplify, focus on love, and get ready for an amazing New Year!

Love & bliss,
