December’s Favourites & Feelings

Even though Christmas is now over I am excited that 2020 is quickly approaching. Most people I talk to always complain about January blues, but I am my happiest at the start of the year and I defo fit the blogger stereotype of ‘new year, new me’. For today’s post, we are going old school and I will be talking about what I have been loving this month and how I feel.

Christmas Parties

I absolutely adore Christmas time because everyone seems so much happier and all the parties and get-togethers are just so lovely. This month I have been the busiest I have been all year and one of my fav outings was with work – well I say work, it was more of a double date with my work bestie Carole and her boyf and Harry. We visited a little nearby village for pizza and beer and it was so much fun to socialise outside of work and get into the festive spirit. 

Another party that was just as fab was our annual family get together, where we all meet up for a Christmas meal with the whole entire family, but this time Harry was by my side. It’s very rare I spend time with my extended family, so it was so lovely to eat good food and get drunk with my fav people.

Gucci Card Wallet


So this Christmas I was officially the luckiest girl in the world and my bestie, Phoebe,  gifted me the prettiest purse in the world. We met up mid-December for brunch at The Ivy in Bath to catch up and exchange gifts and she warned me not to freak out then pulls out a freaking Gucci carrier bag, so as you can imagine I freaked the fuck out. It is the most gorgeous cardholder and I feel such a queen. It has four card slots with the iconic GG logo on the front and is made from the softest leather – ahhh, so obsessed.

Content Creating
I have been so up and down with blogging recently, as you all know, and this month I have re-discovered my love of content creating and it feels so good to get back into the routine of weekly uploads. Also, I know this post is about December, BUT November was such a good month for my Instagram and was probably the only time I have ever been proud of my feed. Next week I have an exciting collab coming with JustHannahHere and I cannot wait to get back into working with other creators – if anyone else is interested in collaborating, please hit me up!



Starting with Afterlife – This is the second, maybe even third time I have watched this series, it’s one of the ones that you just can’t stop watching. If you are living under a rock then Afterlife is directed and acted by Ricky Gervais, the most offensive yet hilarious comedian. Long story, very short, the show is about Tony’s life going from perfect to not so, when his wife passes away and his journey back to happiness. So although this is a comedy, it also tugs on the heartstrings. 10/10 would recommend.


The next show I (and everyone else) has been obsessing over is You. The second series of You was released about a week ago and me and Harry have nearly finished it already. If you like a show full of suspense and creepy hot stalker men, then this is definitely for you.

Ombre Nails

I made a pledge to myself four months ago after a nail disaster to never get acrylics again. But what have I done? Got acrylics and I am so in love with them. I feel more myself when I have a set of fake nails on, especially when they are ombre. 

December was a bit of an odd month for me, full of good and bad. It started off amazing in sunny Bournemouth with Chan and then ended also amazing with Christmas, but the middle wasn’t so great. On my blog, I am always very transparent with my mental health and I want to raise as much awareness as possible, but I feel quite reluctant to admit that I was so sad during a time I should be at my happiest. I visited the doctors this month for the first time since 2018 and I am now on new anti-depressants, which have crazy side effects. I am just hoping that things start to look up soon and 2020 will be a much better year for my mental health.

Thank you for reading my little rambly post, I hope that December treated you well. Lots of love as always.

Until next time,

    Oh my gosh that Gucci wallet! Ahhh wow gorgeous! What an incredibly generous present, how lovely. You totally deserve it beaut! You’re an amazing friend!

    I haven’t seen Afterlife yet but I have heard such good things, the fact you’ve watched it so much must mean it’s so good!?!?!? I definitely need to put in on my ‘to watch’ list. Also I need to start You series 2. The first one I binge watched in like 3 days around this time last year actually… so I gotta get that done with season 2 also! I watch it with my Mum so we’ll have to arrange some evenings together ASAP! So much to watch!

    I’m sorry to hear your mental health hasn’t been the best lately, but I know you’re a strong woman and you’re going to be just fine, even when it doesn’t feel like it. The side effects won’t last forever on your new anti depressants and I promise, each day is one day closer to happiness ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Well done for talking about it, opening up and raising awareness, good for you Queen and never feel obliged to feel happy just because it should be a happy time… just trust how you feel and allow yourself to feel those things without guilt ❤️❤️❤️ You got this Queen, and here’s to a happier month and 2020 for you. I believe in you and your happiness!!

    Ps… I would totally love to collab if you’re interested!?!?!? Let me know please 😍 happy new year! Xx

    I think December is always such a hard time – you are meant to be happy and cheerful and social but sometimes that pressure can leave you feeling down and you feel like you have failed yourself and others. This is not true! Mental health can affect anyone at any time and it takes an incredibly strong person to keep fighting their own mind. December is always one of the hardest months of the year for me personally for this exact reason. It sounds like you have still managed to have some lovely times in December and I hope that January and 2020 will be even better for you and filled with just as much fun and good friendships. Excited for our collab next week.. now to write the post! xx

      Thank you so much gorgeous, this comment means so much to me, you are always so thoughtful. Social media can get so toxic and even though I am so passionate about it, I do hate it sometimes. I hope that you are feeling better after a chaotic december too sweetie.

      Wishing you the best 2020 full of love and happiness! xxxx

    Love this !! That Gucci purse is so cute oh my goodness, also your nails look so nice! I’ve had acrylic nails on since 2015 now and I’ve never once had them taken off because I’d feel like an alien without them so I know exactly what you mean about them making you feel more like yourself. Hope 2020 treats you wonderfully angel xxx


    • chloeburford says:
