It’s December. Did you notice the arrival of the most talked about and eagerly awaited month of the year? The advent calendars have started, from the humble chocolate ones to those with £100 worth of beauty products behind each door. No matter how your December has started, there is no denying that the Christmas spirit will soon infect all of us. Personally, I cannot wait for all of the humbugs to start yelling The Pogues at the top of their lungs.
As well as drunken chanting, there is a lot that I’m looking forward to this month. Here’s a taste.
I have learned a lot about friendships over the years. When I moved away from home to study at uni, I began to realise the importance of friends that will always be there to help you through the harder times, as well as being there to enjoy the best bits. Friendships naturally come to an end, often allowing others to begin. One thing that I have noticed on social media over the last year is an increase in the number of people that say you should ‘cut people out’ if they ‘don’t deserve you’, and similar inspirational quotes. I completely agree with this. In fact, at times I may have gone too far.
Here is my advice to you.
It’s mid-February, so naturally everyone is thinking about Valentine’s Day. I can’t deny all the loved-up couples their chance to flaunt how much they adore each other. It’s the one day of the year where we can’t moan about soppy Instagram posts, so we must allow them their chance.
How much often do you show your gal pals how much you love them, though?
Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to remind them, and I think it’s just as important to celebrate this day as it’s more-prominent counterpart. Friendships are a massive impact on overall happiness. How can a women get through life’s trials and tribulations without the support of other girls to lean on and share in your successes and commiserate your failures? Friends are your support system, and Galentine’s is the perfect time to remember how important that is.
With this in mind, five of my best gals got together at my flat on Saturday night. We ate tonnes of sweets, ordered Dominos, watched Bridesmaids, shared our troubles, ate Lola’s cupcakes, and laughed a hell of a lot.
Here are some ideas for your own Galentine’s get together.
Last weekend I went to my first ever Disney bloggers meet up. I was pretty nervous to meet some people that I’d been following on Twitter for months and have some fun in the city.
In typical Lisa form, I went out the night before and started the day feeling rather hungover. This did really help to make me feel less nervous about meeting everyone, but more worried about the state of my health for the day. It was definitely a rollercoaster of headaches and tiredness mixed in with the excitement of meeting everyone. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend several calming drinks the night before a meet up!
If you’re thinking of coming to the next event, then this blog is definitely for you. I’m going to go through the vague plan of the day, what everyone did and when they did it. I’m already looking forwards to the next Disney meet where I can catch up with my friends and meet even more Disney fans.
