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,
