Why I'm not doing Blogmas (& my advent calendar!)

It's that time of year when it seems like anyone and everyone who has a blog or a YouTube channel is announcing they will be doing Blogmas or Vlogmas. For those of you who don't know what this is, it's blogging or vlogging every day for the first 24 days of December. I thought I'd take a moment to tell you why I'm not and why you shouldn't feel pressured to either.

In one simple sentence; it's too much. I want my blog content to be what I want to post, when I want to post it, and not just for the sake of it to go along with all my fellow bloggers. For me, it'd be churning out rubbish posts for no real reason. If you are doing Blogmas, then hats off to you. It's far too much for me!

Another thing to bare in mind is that Christmas time itself is a busy, stressful time of year (despite also being lots of fun). For those of us with slightly wobbly mental health, it can be overwhelming enough without having to write 24 days worth of blogs and uploading every day.
 No thanks!

HOWEVER, I do hope to be posting a bit more throughout the festive period. There should be some fun festivities to tell you all about and I'll definitely share what I can! 

Something that I'm SUPER excited about over the festive period is my incredible advent calendar by Amazon Beauty. I had NEVER heard of it and I didn't know it was a thing until it turned up at my door after my incredibly lovely boyfriend ordering it for me as a surprise. 24 days of beauty products by some big brands; what's not to like?! I'll be keeping you in the loop with what's in each box and I might even do a lil review of all the products inside. Exciting!

Whether you're doing blogmas/vlogmas or not, enjoy the run up to Christmas and all the festivities it brings. It doesn't matter if you're documenting what you're doing as long as you're having a fab time!
