It’s December. The end of another year. I’m not a big fan of Christmas, it seems so commercialised and more about spending money than spending time with family and loved ones. I do love experiencing the end of one year and the beginning of another with all the new possibilities it brings. But for now, a month to reflect on 2019 and all that’s come along with it.
December: Family, Food, Laughter, Warmth, Lights
This exhibition at the National History Museum showcases the best of this annual competition. Every year I absolutely adore going to this exhibition and this year was not a disappointment. The pictures are so stunning and dramatic and breath-taking. It gets super busy on the weekends so if you can go during the week it’s better. You can also book tickets online to make sure you get in at the time you want.
Unfortunately, my old smoothie maker gave up on me and I seeing as they’re my everyday breakfast I needed a new one quick. I did my research and found this all in one system which is perfect for a small London flat like mine! I’ve been using this for the past month and it’s absolutely fantastic. I use it a few times every day making – smoothies, hummus, nut milk, sauces, grating or slicing veggies quickly and mixing doughs. It’s a one stop shop for everything. I was unsure about how loud it would be due to reviews but it’s quieter than the smoothie maker used to be and much quicker at making peanut butter!
I’m very much looking forward to spending my 30th in Iceland this year. Not the store but the country! My partner and I are spending a week together here exploring this beautiful country before heading to Scotland for new year with both of our families. I cannot wait to see the beauty of this country in person and maybe, just maybe, see the northern lights!
If you can give blood, you really should. It’s an hour of your time to save a life (thins includes waiting and prep etc, the giving blood part only takes 10-15 minutes). The staff are always really lovely and they’ll look after you. There’s free snacks as well! If you’ve been thinking about doing it this is your little push to click on the header or image and get yourself booked up to your next local session.
Last, but by no means least, I’m looking forward to my 30th birthday. 30 magical years I’ve been on this earth. So much has happened in those 30 years and I’m so grateful for all of it, the good, the bad, the happy times, the sad times. All of it has lead to now, to the person I am now and to the life I live now. I’m so excited to explore what the next decade holds for me. Anyone else celebrating a birthday this month, I hope you have a fantastic one =]
