BIG DAY. It’s the Pretty Normal Me Christmas Party today I am beside myself. In previous years this has been a rather tragic affair, namely because it’s just been me and Bua (the dog). This year though, things are different in the best possible way because I am no longer in this shindig solo. @mshepburnley and I have been recording the podcast together for SIX MONTHS now, and since we are both tragic freelancers, we have decided to combine forces and throw a little party!! So tonight’s episode will go up as normal at 5, talking about the bad bits of Christmas, if you struggle with disordered eating, mental health issues or family problems. Next week though will be a recording of our Christmas party which, drumroll please, we will be filming and uploading to the YouTube channel as. EEK. Just gotta wipe the dust off it first 😂 If you’re not already please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and let’s get FESTIVE!!!!!!!

*you don’t need to feel guilty for trying to be healthy at Christmas*. It’s Blogmas Day 12 and I’ve written a post all about FOOD. It’s such a shitty time of year for this narrative, we’re made to feel guilty for eating too much by basically everyone and then, in a cruel twist of fate, everyone’s ready to jump down our throats for declining a mince pie or going for a run. NONE OF THIS IS OKAY.
I decided to write this after seeing a bit of backlash that @carlyrowena received after writing a post full of advice on how to avoid putting on weight at Christmas- Carly is a personal trainer which, to me, makes this post totally logical. I’m lucky enough to have a healthy relationship with food which means I will be eating whatever I damn want over the next few weeks, and although I do understand that for many it is such a complicated time of year, I think to judge anyone for promoting a healthy lifestyle is unfair, not least of all because a lot of the people Carly inspires may be nervous about putting weight on if they have worked hard to lose it.
Of course we shouldn’t be made to feel that putting on weight is anything to be ashamed of, but the way to fight against that is not by judging anyone that feels like it is. It’s such a personal decision.

The long and short of it is this: what anyone eats at Christmas is absolutely none of your business. So let’s remove guilt from the equation and try to enjoy ourselves shall we??? Link to post in bio xxx 📷 @katyaclarkson_photography

*I’m a wanker alert* 🚨 If you’re looking for a belter of a book to get into this Christmas, today’s Blogmas post is for you. I’m sorry that I put my own book in there. A little wanky. But don’t hate a girl for trying. And yes, I know what you are thinking, in between all these parties, the shopping, the wrapping, the eating, the sleeping, the singing and even more eating, WHO has the time to read at Christmas??? I hear ya. But I've gotta say, now I'm A Celeb is over, I do feel like I might at least start to get my evenings back and there is nothing, repeat nothing, I love more than a good book. SO. I made a list of all the books I have read and loved over the last year featuring the ones pictured here and sooo many more. Head over to the blog (link in bio) if you’re hunting for some lovely words. xxxx

I know Christmas is great for so many reasons, but the excuse to wear glitter is probably numero uno for me. Alex hates it (like hates it hates it) which means I’m only allowed to bring sparkly magic into the house for special occasions. One of them being the most special of all: December. With that in mind I’ve just published a blog post full of the very best of the festive makeup. Basically, a whole page dedicated to sparkly, silvery, festivy heaven. If you’re looking for a little nudge into the realms of spending money you shouldn’t on more makeup that you don’t need but that looks SO DAMN CUTE, I’ve got ya. Link, as ever, in bio xxxx

Everything is covered in snow and it’s basically the stuff of dreams. DREAMS. This is wonderful.

I’ve created a list of great causes to donate to this Christmas that is now on the blog for Blogmas Day 9. Christmas is a time for giving and there has never been an easier time to make a difference in somebody’s life. From donating to @crisis_uk and offering someone a Christmas dinner to giving a young carer something to look forward to this Christmas with @barnardos_uk - there is so much out there for you to do. Please have a look at the blog post (link in bio) and spare what you can. Big big love one and all! xxx

Put your hand up if Secret Santa fills you will all kinds of dread…. 🙋🏼 No? Just me then 😂 seriously though, I do find it a bastard to navigate, between an annoyingly small budget, not wanting to offend a colleague and the fear of getting fired if your boss doesn’t find her new willy shaped stress ball very funny, it can feel like a bit of a minefield. I gotchya. I’ve just uploaded my Blogmas Day #6 post - My Secret Santa Gift Guide (that won’t get you fired, probably). Check it out now on the blog. Link in bio xxx

Put your hand up if you, like me, always end up spilling food down your Christmas jumper... 🙋🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ I don’t know what it is about Christmas (a time when I eat more than ever so should be well practised in the art of NOT dribbling it down my front) but it does normally entail gravy down my front... normally on Christmas Day... down my new festive jumper. Since no one does washing at Christmas, that normally rules that garment out of action until the following year, which is a bloody waste. I will not make that mistake this year!! Got in there good and early with my festive jumpers meaning I get plenty of wear out of them and, cause I’m feeling jolly and helpful and festive, day 5 of Bologmas is a post called ‘The Best Of The Christmas Jumpers’. I’ve trawled the web and found some absolute belters, so if you’re on the hunt for a good’un, head over to the website now (link in bio) and have a peak! Xx 🎅🏼✨

Landed back at work with a thud 😂 after a whirlwind weekend spent in Paris and then decorating the house to within an inch of it’s life, it seems painfully unfair that Monday’s here again. Alas, ever so slightly of the belief that Monday’s in December don’t really count (only a couple more to go before it’s acceptable to sit with food stains all over your pyjama top, drinking wine at 4 in the afternoon shouting at the telly and passing it off as Christmas-spirit). Anyway, for #blogmas day 4 I have written about my weekend in Paris. If ya wanna check it out head over to the blog now (link, as ever, in bio) xxx

*not desperate just festive*
Got organised this year and mission choose-the-christmas-tree is a go! Chosen an absolute monster, taking a quick pit stop in the pub for a mulled wine (brought the tree in with us to some weird looks) and then it’s time to turn our sitting room into Santa’s Grotto 🎅🏼❤️🎄✨❄️👌🏼 thanks @pineandneedles for a very festive setup xxx •

One of my favourite things about this time of year is the generosity and joy that surrounds us - to my mind the Christmas spirit is utterly contagious and I really think that people are just NICER in December - with that in mind I’ve written my favourite article of #blogmas so far (only three to choose from but whatever) and that is all about Random Acts Of Christmas Kindness - basically the little festive things that you can do to spread even more joy and love than normal. From tipping waiters and waitresses more, to donating your time, to delivering a festive hamper to your local police station, there’s a whole load that you can do to spread the extra special Christmas Kindness (MY FAVOURITE THING!) this December. Have a look on the blog now (link in bio) and here’s hoping you take a bit of inspiration from it! Big love xxxxxx 📷 @katyaclarkson_photography
