Have you ever felt rushed to ‘get everything done’ on the run up to Christmas? Trying to squeeze it all in then feel exhausted by the time Christmas Day arrives? What if the things that need to be done could be more easeful and fun?!
A clean home is the foundation to a feel good home. So gift yourself what I call a Sparkle and Shine Session – invite a cleaner into your home, to make it Sparkle and Shine – this could be a deep, light or floor clean and take the load off!
If hiring a cleaner isn’t an option, invite your bestie over and do a Sparkle and Shine Session together, mopping with your drink of choice in hand, while dancing to your fave tunes is a more fun and feel good way to bring the sparkle home! Then help your bestie do the same in her home!
My favourite cleaning product is Ecologic’s Organic Rose and Geranium Tile & Floor Cleaner, opening the front door is like walking into a field of roses…heavenly!!
Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree…putting up the Christmas Tree can be quite the task, with questions like ‘Where shall we put it?’ ‘Do we need lights?’ and ‘Can we put it up yet?’.
Find or create a SPACE for your tree, even if that means going against tradition or moving furniture around. You want to be able to enjoy and walk around it with ease! Lights are a wonderful way of creating WARMTH and Christmas Magic! Find some you really love, so every time you see them, there’s a feeling of being lit up on the inside – like an excited child at Christmas. Place lights vertically up and down rather than around the tree, easier and more magical!
AND…YES…put the tree up whenever you feel – there are NO RULES!!! If I was writing this on Social Media, I’d be inserting a funny gif here, think Will Ferrell running around excited at the prospect of putting up the Christmas Tree early!
Let there be Light… add some candlelight. Sit amongst them while wrapping Christmas gifts or enjoying great conversation with family and friends. I love Unwind by Design Candles, Hand made in Peregian Beach. The quality is outstanding, with an array of scents (Cathedral is dreamy!) and the packaging beautiful. You may just have ticked something off your ‘Find a Gift’ list! Once the space within the home feels good and is prepped ready for Christmas, everything else can fall into place much more easily… Thank You for connecting here. Life is about connection and togetherness, this Christmas enjoy all those moments and watch the warmth of love grow in your hearts. xx
