I used to share monthly to-do lists on this blog and they were some of my most popular posts. However I retired them this year because I was wary of how they could make some people feel as though they weren’t being productive enough or doing the right things. Also I began to notice that they were feeling fairly vacuous as I couldn’t publish ALL of the things I wanted or had to do because they were either somewhat private (home life) or confidential (work life). With all of that being said, I did really love how they helped me to stay on track with my smaller, month-to-month goals and how if I went back through the archives, I’d be able to read a precise, short but succinct snapshot into what I was up to back then.
For this month only, I thought I’d put together a little festive to-do list. You can tick these off along with me or cherry-pick the ones that’d mean the most to you. And, next year, you can expect a condensed version of this inside the first Sundaze of the month!
- Make an epic almond Bailey’s hot chocolate with my sister. We always have one on Christmas Eve but who’s to say we might not have one every single weekend, eh?
- Create my 2020 bullet journal pages and map out January.
- Donate to a food bank and a women’s shelter. I’m also going to be donating £28.87 to Crisis UK: this provides a homeless person with a place at a Christmas centre and they’ll get a Christmas dinner and warm shelter.
Shoot outside Balthazar in Covent Garden!
- Read for an hour each day, when I don’t otherwise have plans.
- Pick up Kraft paper to wrap this year’s gifts in. It’s 100% recyclable! (I’m also going to be saving the wrapping paper my gifts come in again; I did it last year as well and the cuttings went in my bullet journal title page collages!)
- Use up my half-used cleansers and skincare before the move!
- Go to four Barre classes.
- Make and freeze a huge batch of our vegan jalapeño poppers ready for the Christmas period!
- Visit a Christmas market! I’d like to visit Bath, but than likely it’ll just be another London one, which is also fine.
What’s on your festive to-do list?
