December Goals.

Hello, December…

The first of December is probably my favourite day of the year, if I had to pick just one. I’m always so excited for Christmas but I never truly embrace the festivities until the first day of December – then I go crazy.
I’ve got some very excited plans for the month ahead, as well as a few goals to achieve if I can…

Would you believe that today is our six month wedding anniversary! I can’t believe how fast that has gone, it seems like just yesterday we were walking the streets of New York.
I’m in London today but I’m dashing home to spend some time with my love – I feel like I’ve barely seen him recently but hopefully we can grab an evening together over the weekend.

Anyway, here’s what I’m hoping to do and celebrate this month!

01. Happy first day of Vlogmas! This is my third year doing Vlogmas and I’m SO looking forward to another 24 days of YouTube fun!
Last year I didn’t manage to complete it – I was so overwhelmed about going back to New Zealand, I couldn’t eat or sleep, nevermind film (and I think I may have had a sneaking suspicion a certain someone was going to propose!) – but this year I’m staying at home and I’m so excited to share our fun plans with you all. It’s going to be very cosy, a lot of ‘at home’ vlogs but all very lovely and festive I’m sure!
Make sure you subscribe here to watch.

02. This weekend we are putting up our Christmas tree and I am beyond excited. Why is Christmas just the best? I never really stick to a theme for Christmas decorations but I think this year I’ll probably make a little more effort because we’re at home for the whole month!
My tree will still be a tacky collection of assorted Paperchase decorations, but I think I’ll decorate our flat better this year! I can’t wait to show you what we do with the place.

03. I have one more trip away this year but it’s only a little one so I’m super excited for that. I feel like I’ve been away a lot in 2017 and I’ve really valued my time at home so much more!
This year has been crazy and good in so many ways, and it feels right to spend the end of the year in Glasgow.
Anyway, I’m sure you will see my trip over Instagram and vlogs, it’s set to be very busy and very pretty!

04. I know I’ve talked about this without revealing too much, but the project we’ve been working on for the last few months is almost ready for its unveiling. I’m sure it’s been obvious what we’re up to, but it’s been quite a stressful little venture so I haven’t said much about it!
Anyway, I shall reveal all in Vlogmas over the weekend I think – and maybe do a proper video about it too. It’s been awesome to work on something interiors-related outside of our home for once.

05. I turn 27 this month which is… madness. When did I become so old?! I honestly still feel like my 17 year old self, just a little bit wiser perhaps. Perhaps.
I never really do anything for my birthday since it’s such an awkward date (21st December) but I think this year I may make some plans. I never know what to do for the occasion either, I just want to drink champagne and eat cake! And open presents. So that’s probably what I’ll do.

Ahh this month is going to be lovely, really, truly lovely. What have you guys got planned for December? And fun plans or goals?

  • 1st December is one of my fave day of the year too!!! I’m so overly excited for the holidays plus I get to open advent calendars from today on 😀 So excited to see your December here and everywhere you make content!!!

  • I can’t believe it’s Vlogmas time already! How quickly has this time of year come round? Looking forward to hearing about what you’ve been up to in the vlogs ☺️


  • I am also having my birthday this month! I have so many things planned, but I have decided to take it slowly – not really working, as i am still a nervewreck, though. Can’t wait for the reveal of the project!


  • The first of December is also of one my favorite days, and it’s usually when we put up the Christmas tree and decorations around the house while listening to a festive playlist.
    Hope you have a wonderful December – I’m so looking forward to Vlogmas!! – and congrats on your six month wedding anniversary 🙂 x

  • I think the first of December is one of the most festive days, because it’s when things really kick off, so exciting! Can’t wait to see your vlogmas this year 🙂 xx

  • We’re putting up the tree on the 9th. BF has a job interview next week, and I have a big work project so we’re saying Christmas starts then!

    My birthday is on the 24th of December so it can be difficult to plan things sometimes 🌿❤️ I love how is it so festive and pretty every year though.

  • Oh my, how is it already December! Yes, the month is so festive and lovely! I love Christmas too! 🙂

    Sounds like a lovely month ahead! Can’t wait to watch your Vlogmas!!

    I’m traveling (to neighbouring cities) next weekend and the weekend after, and then we’re going to Mexico for New Year’s! It’s going to be busy month but I have this weekend to just chill at home and get my blog organized so I’ll be manageable!

  • girl i’m so excited for your vlogmas. i hope i can keep up with it whilst i’m doing my own.


  • I am so happy you are doing Vlogmas! Any birthday in December is a bit awkward with the rush of the holidays, but you definitely should find a way to celebrate it. Cake and champagne sounds great! Lovely post!

  • “I never truly embrace the festivities until the first day of December – then I go crazy.” that’s me! Haha. Ive already started with my Xmas films binge. I can’t wait for when you’ll finally reveal your secret project! Also – you don’t look 27, I could’ve sworn you were just 21 or 22 hahaha. Happy 6-month anniversary, btw!

  • That chair in your room is sooo cool. I wonder if it’s nice to sit on, or if it’s just there for decoration 🙂

    I always enjoy reading your posts and goals, they always seem so achievable, like you are talking about mindsets rather than another level of life, does that make sense?I feel like being a teen, limits my options of some goals, I can’t just get up and go on holiday or to an event. But I still like to try but either way, I need to learn how to properly set goals and also find them… I can’t believe you are already sharing your December goals! I feel like I just read you last one!
