I'm blogging everyday of December! - Blogmas Day 1

The Big Blogmas Project
It is officially the month of December and how slowly it has come, yet at the same time how quickly. I feel as if I have been waiting and waiting with barely concealed and rather childish excitement yet it has somehow snuck up on me!

For this special time of year, I shall be joining 91 other lovely bloggers in taking part in the Big Blogmas Project, posting daily not only until Christmas but for the whole of December. Rather than launch straight into the project, I thought I'd cheat a little and for my first post give you all a little prewarning - you're about to be bombarded with all manner of Christmas and Winter related posts!

In all honesty I am both excited and terrified, never having attempted daily blogging before. I'm more of a spur-of-the-moment blogger than a scheduler, blogging only when inspiration hits or the mood takes me. As such,this month shall certainly be a challenge but I am determined to follow through!I have only four days left of lectures, (most of) my gifts bought and wrapped, and nothing to do but write. This will be easy..right?

On a final note, after lusting after them last year I could not resist buying  jewellery advent calendar. Such calendars usually aren't exactly practical for those on a student budget or the otherwise broke. However, I was over the moon to find one for only £5 marked down from an already cheap £10. Thank goodness for Primark! In order for you to join me in the countdown for Christmas, I ill be ending each post with a picture of that day's calendar window. To kick it off, today's is this gorgeous pair of bird earrings which I of course immediately put on!:

  1. I was very tempted to get a jewelry advent calendar but decided not to in the end that kind of makes me wish I had done! Haha xx

  2. Oooh I saw the jewellery calendars in Primark but when I got round to buying one they'd all sold out.. typical Primark! Looking forward to your Blogmas posts :)

  3. I was very tempted to do Blogmas but I don't think I'd be able to do a post every day with everything being so busy!

  4. I'm going to be blogging every day up untll Christmas day which I think scary enough so good luck with the whole of December!!!
    I very very very nearly bought this advent calender so I can't wait to see what's actually inside - Exciting!!!

  5. Great advent calendar. Good luck with your month of blogging!

  6. This is such a cool idea I am not taking part in blogmas this year but definitely will next year!
    Please check out my blog and hopefully follow

  7. I'm doing blogmas too this year for the first time! I'm so excited! Xxx

  8. I won't be doing this. I'm doing a bunch of other projects that I know are too much to handle as it is. Yikes! But I'm very excited to see you on my feed more this Christmas :)

  9. I just found out about Blogmas through your blog! I was like "Whaaat in the world is this?" I might starting a little late, but I'm 100% doing it! I'm the same as you, I'm more of a sporadic poster, but I did a 12 Day Blogger Challenge a little while back and that was challenging enough! If this is tough, it'll be because I run out of things to blog about -- aaand I doubt I'll have very much Christmas stuff about. Hopefully I'll get some inspiration!

  13. Great post. Hadn't planned on doing blogmas, but then I realised that I already posted the past 2 days so thought why not just carry on and do blogmas for the first time.

  14. This is a really great post - I'm looking forward to reading your blog throughout Blogmas (: the earrings are so adorable! I didn't even know jewellery calendars existed!
