GROCERY SHOPPING TIPS

Day 20: We all hate going shopping when it’s busy: people are getting in your way, being slow and not knowing what they need to get. JUST GET OUT THE WAY MADDIE NEEDS HER FOOD! Well soon I need to go out and buy the food for my Christmas dinner, but first I wanna share a few tips I consider before going out to the store and getting all my delicious food!

Tip 1: Know what you need to get. It’s always painful when you’re waiting for some old person trying to decide whether to buy the medium sized ham or the small one, then he doesn’t even get one in the end! I always HATE waiting, so that’s why you help other people out by knowing what you need to buy because it saves you time!

Tip 2: Bring someone with you. I always go with my Mama to help with the shopping. Always make sure you have a spare pair of hands to help hold things and also to help find other items of food. It’s always hard trying to find things by yourself, so it’s always good to bring someone with you, who can also make the trip somewhat enjoyable!

Tip 3: Cards at the ready! Whatever you do, ALWAYS get ready to pay at the checkouts! I absolutely HATE when there’s a massive queue, just because silly Brian can’t find his card. Please, just make sure you’re always ready to pay, for me. Thank youuuu xx

That was Day 20 of 25 days of Christmas 2018 with me. I hope you can take my tips into consideration when you’re doing your shopping, and I swear if I see any of you being slow… well, you don’t wanna know what I’ll do!

CHRISTMAS DRINKS

Day 19: So it’s Christmas day. All the food is laid out, family and friends around the table, all having fun… but what about the drinks? Whilst your Uncle Matt is already on the Vodka shots, what are the under 18’s supposed to drink without getting drunk?! This is my list of some drinks that I really enjoy at the dinner table during this festive period!

Cranberry juice

Cranberry Juice is one of the most common drinks had at Christmas time. Like a lot of drinks on the list, it is very sweet and fruity, and it’s likely that everyone will want a glass, even drunk Matt!

Orange juice
Orange Juice is a citrusy drink, but still, something which can be enjoyed by a lot of people, smooth or with bits. Cheap, but also tasty, and it definitely quenches the thirst of a lot of my family and friends around the table!

Bubbly water

Bubbly Water is one of my absolute favorites. I have this refreshing beverage almost every day, and even at Christmas, it never fails to disappoint! All you need is a SodaStream to make homemade Bubbly Water instantly, which can be supplied for everyone to have. Who doesn’t love Bubbly Water?!

Cranberry Spice

Cranberry Spice is something which I found recently but have yet to try, though it looks very enticing. With the mix of various fruits and spices, it culminates to form a very exciting drink to compliment the vast Christmas feast!

Julmust

Julmust is a classic Swedish drink which is one of my personal favorites. From first glance, it can fool people, as it looks a lot like Coca-Cola, but it has a very fantastic taste, and in my opinion, it tastes a lot like Christmas, every time I have a sip!

That was Day 19 of 25 days of Christmas 2018 with me. If you decide to get drunk, it’s not my fault! Maybe next year when I turn 18 we can talk about more interesting drinks!

HOMEMADE GIFT IDEAS

Day 17: Time to plan for gifts. Not everyone has the opportunity to buy Christmas gifts or feel like it is necessary so I’ll give you my tips of what homemade gifts you can make for Christmas!

Create a Christmas tree out of chocolate. Just use an old bottle and tape them to the bottle. Awesome gift idea for the chocolate lover in the family.

You can do a lot with Mason jars. Create a candle holder and decorate them and maybe bake something and decorate the jar. 

The hot chocolate jar is perfect for this season when it is cold and you just want a cup of hot chocolate after you come home from school. A fast, easy and elegant way of giving a gift.

Who would not love a jar of M&M? Choose the Christmas colors and decorate the jar. Love this idea!

That was Day 17 of 25 days of Christmas 2018 with me. Hopefully, you know what gifts you can make for your family and friends! I also feel like I’m getting a cold 🙁

Now imma give you the best advise to create YOUR beautiful Christmas tree.

That was Day 15 of 25 days of Christmas 2018 with me. I’m actually not sure which theme I will go with this year so if you got any ideas please spam my social media. Hope you will create a special and wonderful Christmas tree cause you know “its the most wonderful time of the year”. Merry Christmas to you all!
