It would be totally rude not do to a Christmas one of these. It’s been rather Christmassy over on the blog as I love this time of year. Having said that, this year will be a tough one for us as a family as my grandma won’t be with us; but she will be in spirit. She’s been on my mind a lot again and I do find it a struggle at times. She loved Christmas so much and all the wonderful songs and us being all together. So for anyone missing a loved one right now, sending you love and strength this Christmas.
Last week all seems like a blur, it was a busy weekend from doing the Green People Instagram takeover and our magical day at Lapland UK.
Here is My Gratitude List #2 if you we’re interested to read and this is what I was grateful for last week.
NB: Sorry about the narcissistic selfie image – it’s the only one I could find until I sort my headers out for the series – bit of a slack Alice.
November was an incredible month for us here at Beau Twins – just WOW! We crammed so much in and had so much fun which is always a winner. I’m always weary of November – the cold and dark is a recipe for periods of low but I’ve only had a couple of small blips. Super happy days.
This magical occasion caused thought for fashion! As I was going to be taking lots of snaps and recording what I could to capture our experience; I wanted to make sure the girls were wearing something special.
I’ve had the privilege of working with the lovely Minoti to come up with the perfect outfit for the girls so they could enjoy Lapland UK in comfort and style, whilst remaining warm to getting the most out of their experience.
A Lapland UK Adventure – The Perfect Christmas Tradition for the Family
Dear Freyja and Grace,
You might only be three right now but you do already understand certain aspects of Christmas. We took you to see Santa last year and you enjoyed it so much, I knew that’s what I wanted you to do this year. I really hope we can make it a yearly tradition.
I am forever trying to get the girls bedroom right. It’s really hard to make the small space we have work for us. We live in a small three bed semi and utilising the space can be tricky with two small monkeys and their belongings. Coupled with the fact I work from home and need a home office – we are essentially a room down but it’s needs must.
It felt great writing my first Gratification post a few weeks back. I did initially have in mind I would do it weekly but due to not being well, that went by the way side. Aiming to start afresh this week with post numero 2.
So as the weather gets wetter and colder, we often notice the effect that it is having both inside and outside the house. When you go outside you are making sure to wrap up warm with big winter coats hats and scarfs. You make sure not to forget your wellies either when it gets muddy from all that rain and snow. But how does it affect the inside of your home? Well for one we have the heating on more to keep it toasty and warm inside. But then there is also the mess from all those outdoor winter shoes and clothes that need drying and storing before the next time that you use them. That is where renovating your hallway comes in. In fact, you can set your hallway up, so it not only looks nice, but it provides a practical stop between the outside and the rest of your living quarters. Read on for more.
