Todays blog post pretty some s up everything in my life, especially recently. That is, Living a creative lifestyle.

Creativity, in my life, is something that I have been so passionate about from pretty much all of my life. In fact I had been planning to write this blog post for a little while now.

When you hear the word creative, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?

Having had a few conversations about being creative with a variety of friends. I got some very different answers.

Although there’s no actual right or wrong answer when it comes to someone being creative, there does seem to be a small misconception from a few that to be creative you must be into ‘arts and crafts’. This is not true.

To be honest, you do not need to be a pro with a paintbrush, or a a dab hand with the knitting needles, to have a creative mind. However of course in some cases this will help you a bit! (no matter what your media is).

Creativity can be as big or small as you like. It could be taking the time to grab your favourite colouring pencils, and colour

What is it to lead a creative lifestyle?

Living a creative lifestyle is the way of living a life to the full. Seeking new opportunities and possibilities. Using your time to explore, experiment, discover and be able to express yourself in a multitude of different ways.

It is being able to embrace things as they are, and use your mind and imagination to see what you could create out of those things.

Some people are already living a creative lifestyle without even knowing it, because they believe that being creative is just a small part of life, when really it is everything.

Being creative allows you to speak within media, to show your passions, and emotions, without even saying a word.

Using inspiration to then be developed into something amazing,The creative process is what we do to create beautiful work, and a beautiful life.

Creativity is known for being a valuable workplace skill. Being creative is useful for being able to create new ideas, as well as being able to find solutions to complex issues. So next time you are in an interview or having to dust off your CV consider including your creative skills as a way to impress your possible future employee!

Ways you can start living a creative lifestyle…

Surround yourself with Creatives.

There are so many people in this world that thrive from the ability to be creative, and express themselves in a creative nature. surround yourself with the people that value creativity the most. So many people are already living a creative lifestyle and these people thrive on inspiring you as well as themselves.

There is a multitude of creative spaces where you can connect with people that have similar interests as yours. Places such as Facebook groups, specialised apps, Instagram feeds and hashtags, online forums, Pinterest, Skillshare, and online teaching communities.
I would recommend taking the time to join these groups and check in with them. Making friends with other creatives is also so good for your mental health.

Think outside of the box.

one of my favourite things about leading a creative lifestyle is being able to think about things in a different way! like the ability to find an unexpected solution to an issue in a completely unique and imaginative way.

another thing I love about thinking outside of the box is being able to look at things differently.
Taking something blank and picturing and creating something amazing out of it.

Make time to actually be creative.

when it comes to being creative, and leading a creative lifestyle one thing that you need the most. Time.
think about it. Allowing yourself the actual time to follow your creative inspiration allows you the ability to create the life you want to live and express yourself in so many different ways.

Stop setting limitations.

One of the biggest blocks when it comes to creative mindset is setting yourself limitations! especially the ones that you don’t need to have. Limitations such as not knowing how to achieve something. However that does not need to be an obstacle of stopping you. In some aspects you can take the time to research and learn. Whilst, in other aspects, going back to thinking outside of the box, look for more unique ways of being able to achieve.

There are some limitations that we face that are not being caused by our mental state. Obviously, we all have limitations in life, things that get in our way, obstacles such as money. Money is a major limitation when it comes to being able to afford being able to achieve goals that you are setting yourself, which is something that I struggle with alot, as I have some exciting plans that I have had to break into very small milestones to be able to reach where I want to be.

Don’t pressure yourself.

Especially when it comes to a creative block, the last thing that you want to do is pressure yourself. Learn when it is necessary to take a break. stop pressuring yourself into productivity. By pressuring yourself to achieve you are causing yourself more harm. The feeling of, ‘I haven’t created in a while’ should not exist. the best creations and creative flow comes from a relaxed heart, and the ability to take your time. A rushed piece of work will not be your next masterpiece!

As I very well know, it is so easy at times to beat yourself up when your in an lack of inspirational state. However, just because your not feeling creative and productive 24/7 doesn’t mean you should put yourself down over it! it is ok to take a break and recharge, when you need too.

Ways to show your creative spirit.

  • Art.
  • Paper craft.
  • Knitting or crochet.
  • Embroidery.
  • Uplifting.
  • Writing.
  • Photography
  • Woodwork

This is just a very small list out of the thousands of options there is to express your creative spirit. If I wrote a full list of each specific thing, we would be here for hours.

What ever your media is, each and everyone of us has the ability to be creative in some kind of aspect. It doesn’t have to be a physically created product however, it could be the way you have done something, by using a creative process.

For example, the way you organise, the way you display something, or even The way you use an object for a different purpose then would normally be expected.

What does creativity mean to you?

I would love to hear from you guys your interpretation of what it means to be creative and lead a creative lifestyle?

Is there something you do that is different to others, I love to hear new ideas that involve the aspect of being creative.

What I would like to see from life in 2021.

Can you believe that we have actually finally made it into the year 2021, I am pretty certain at one point I didn’t think that 2021 would ever start. Well, it did feel that way anyway.

I’m not going to lie. I started writing a post about rounding up the year that was 2020. At the start of the post, I had written that I was going to try and remain positive. The truth is, that was pretty impossible. No matter how hard I tried to divert from the negative mindset I found myself listing way too many reasons why 2020 was hell for us. Then I found myself lost in a, how am I really starting this apparently fresh start year. (well, we won’t even get into last nights latest announcement!… Yeah Thank you for that Borris, last to follow through again)

Don’t get me wrong. I do like to keep it real when I’m talking about my life here on the blog. No one actually has the ability to be positive 24/7. Although one of my main goals in life has been to spread positivity where ever I can.

So I’ll do a short some up of what happened in 2020 with us.

We moved into our first home together.

first home

We had known for a few years, it would not be long till we were moving away from the farm, and finding ourselves somewhere. From January onwards, we were lucky enough to start our search for our new home. Our beautiful house was one of the very first houses that we looked at, and afterwards, nothing came in comparison, honestly.

We were moved in by March, Just days before the very first lockdown we faced. Our first home together, and it is very special. I can’t wait for our future adventures here.

So far we have already created so many memories, made new connections and friends.

This is honestly the main thing that happened to us this year.

We still managed to have some fun in the summer, whilst social distancing, when we’ve needed to.

That pretty much sums up 2020. (The positive version anyway)

2021 is a feeling of a fresh start. We do know that there is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to the COVID pandemic. With the vaccination being rolled out, we should be back to normality by June or July.

Keeping a positive mindset for that I am excited at the thought of still being able to have our dream wedding that has been postponed till July 30th.

What I would really like to see from 2021.

This year I have made the decision not to make any New Years resolutions. The thing is, when it comes to resolutions, they barely ever are achieved. Setting a New Years resolution is almost as good as setting yourself up for failure. Most of the time anyway.

Interesting fact. Did you know that the 17th of January is national ‘give up your NY resolution day’? I am not lying. It is actually a thing. Shocking right? 17 days is the most anticipated time that we tend to stick to our ‘New year, New me’. Really gives you something to think about right?

Our perfect wedding day!

Well, my first one is pretty obvious. I would like to successfully reboot our wedding plans and get back on track to celebrate our love for one another for July 30th. I had taken a break from the wedding plans due to the utter uncertainty that 2020 left us. Choosing to postpone our wedding really was a heartbreaking and horrible decision to have had to of made. However. Onwards and upwards. I can’t wait to start the fun things we couldn’t do last year (Of course in the hope that 2021 allows us to do them). I’m looking forward to finding the perfect dress, preparing for our day, and having our hen nights!

I would like to regain control of my health.

For the past few years, I have really been struggling with my body, As well as my mental health. I still have been suffering from chronic illness, which is yet to be fully diagnosed, it has been nearly 2 years.

When it comes to my mental health, I can admit that 2020 made everything feel like it was coming down on me worse, I was Diagnosed with PTSD, and I am currently getting support. I am waiting to have trauma therapy at the moment.

It has not been easy at the best of times, but this year I am determined to try anything possible to get myself back on track.

Illustrations

For the past year, alongside my blogging, I have been absolutely addicted to the Procreate program.

I have been drawing digitally over the past year since paying for the program, I got myself an apple pencil! Honestly, I haven’t looked back since, the last few weeks I have been sharing my illustrations on a new instagram, which has really given me the confidence in what I have been achieving. Now I plan to open my own sticker, and label shop on Etsy. So watch this space for an official update on that.

2021

Positivity and happiness

Although like most I do have some quite specific goals, that I would like to achieve this year, my main focus is to concentrate on myself. My positivity and happiness.

The other day I read an interesting article, with the headline, when did positivity become so toxic. It is true, we should be taking time to work on ourselves, and come to terms with our emotions. We should not be feeling pressured to feel positive, but working towards the actual emotion of positivity. The real one, not the fake pretending to be positive.

What I’ll be doing to achieve my goals this year.

I am determined not to give up

I swear, one of the biggest flaws I know myself, that I have. Giving up. Sometimes the idea of giving up is just so much more easy, than actually pursuing.

Setting myself milestone

Honestly, we all have the right to be able to dream big, and I support being able to dream big. However to actually reach those goals, and have our dreams come true, we need to think smaller at first. Which is something that I have realised I hadn’t really been doing very well.

This year I am using my Mal Paper, daily goal setter journal, and I am breaking my goals up.

Taking more time to be creative

Creativity is literally my life. I love being creative, I craft, I write, I dream. All of these things I am so passionate about. So this year I have decided to stop procasinate, and give myself more time to actually create, craft, and inspire myself.

2021

No matter what it is you have planned for your 2021 year, I wish you the best with it. 2021 has the potential to be an amazing year. It may not be the best start right now, and yep we are officially in another serious lockdown, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We will get through this, together.

January Sales shopping tips you need!

This post contains affiliate links that if you choose to purchase from them. It will earn me a small commission at no extra cost to you.

The January sales, Does anyone else get a slight tingle of excitement at the thought of the reductions on nice things?

The funny thing about Christmas is that we spend an absolute fortune all for one day! to then rush out the next day to a week, to spend even more money on things that we probably do not need! We just love a good old bargain! Am I right?

So let’s talk January sale tips you need to know!

Pre Christmas tip – You need to know!

Shops often mark the items with a random letter and number that they are planning to place in the January sales. These will normally be written on the item label, something like ‘S16’, Often in biro. Avoid paying out on these if it is something you’d rather purchase cheaper in the sales.

Only spend what you can afford.

Look, Let’s get real for a minute. How many times have you spent out in the January sales, and left yourself out of pocket for the whole of January? ending up as feeling the longest month, days feel like weeks and weeks just feel like there never gonna end!

Save yourself some of the pain and give yourself a budget when heading out to the sales.

Stick to your budget & avoid the credit card!

It might be on sale, and it might be a really awesome addition to the wardrobe. Now is the time more than ever to stop making purchases outside of your means.

Avoid using the credit card! Maxing out your card, not only puts you in a worse financial situation, it can prevent you from a decent credit score in the future. Meaning financial back up when it is really needed may not become available to you.

Ask yourself, Do you really need it?

Is it that you really need that new top, or do you just like the price of it? You should only be spending your money on things that you genuinely like, need and know that you are going to be able to get plenty of use of! It is so easy to get embraced in the price of something when you’ve headed sale shopping.

Plan ahead, Where are you going?

Sale shopping is serious business. Crowds of shoppers, all doing the same rummaging that you are, trying to look for the best bargains to take home. A lot of the time not having a clue what it is they are looking for.

And. Going shopping for the day in main town centres are the most hectic places to be. Especially before the new year hits, whilst everyone is still off work. Thousands of people all having the same idea of getting some Bargains in, and making a day out of it.

List the things you genuinely need so that you can shop with purpose.

There is no harm in heading into the sales with a plan of stuff you need to find! It is a perfect time to buy things that you have needed for a while but has not been able to afford because money always tight (That definitely includes us).

Avoid shopping in the usual places!

If you think about it, why would you buy from the places that you usually by from! Check out the places you would usually say are more expensive! If there are specific shops that you love! but don’t often by from, these are the shops you are gonna want to be in!

Do a price check!

Especially when it comes to the more expensive items that you’re considering on spending out on, it is so worth doing a price check. I do like to check Amazon.

And finally, remember this. The January sales are not your only chance of getting a bargain.

The January sales are every year alongside so many more sales that happen throughout the year! if you can not afford it, you might be able to afford it later.

Most retailers, hold numerous sales throughout the year, as they want to encourage sales to maintain their business! No need to get in a stress when you do not need to be!

Some Christmas festive digital drawings…

Hey guys, me again! For day 19 of Blogmas, We’re doing well hey. I’ve been spending a-lot of time recently practicing with my festive digital drawings. I find it really helpful for my anxiety, and I have started sharing a few pieces of work on my gram recently! I am planning to share lots more in the days to come as-well, as its one of my favourite past times along side crafting, and being generally creative.

So for the first of my festive digital drawings, I would like you to meet my winter bear, bobby. He’s a cosy lazy bear, who would rather be asleep, a little like me.

Next is DeeDee the deer, She is only little, and loves a sugary, sweet hot chocolate in her life, especially with a floating candy cane.

Finally, this is the Jingles the elephant. She is keeping herself warm with her Santa hat, waiting for the big man to come!

How to cope with the feelings of, abnormal Christmas time.

Hey guys, it’s getting pretty close now. Christmas eve is just 7 days away, and we have been busy doing the normal getting everything ready for the big day, although as I’ve said before we all know that this year, being an abnormal Christmas, as we still undergo the impacts of Covid 19.

It is easy to get yourself in a tiz, especially as Christmas day lurks quicker and quicker.

Communicate with your loved ones.

We all know that the normal gatherings are a no go this year, but it doesn’t mean you can’t contact them. Make a special effort to get together virtually, for a Christmas chat. Or agree to meet them whilst following the government social distancing rules. You never know they may need the company, just as much as your feeling right now. Don’t forget we are going through this abnormal Christmas period, together.

Take it easy.

It isn’t often that you do not have to be surrounded by too many people in one house, this year you have every excuse to let the day go as it pleases. The rule of having no more than 6 actually puts less pressure on the Christmas day.

Remember it’s not forever.

Coronavirus may have taken up our lives in 2020, and led to an abnormal Christmas season. However, there is hope for the future, since we postponed our wedding. I am in high hopes of restarting the wedding plans, very soon!

And the same goes for now, staying positive is so important. Because although we feel sad at the moment, and we miss seeing our loved ones regularly and the normal things that we would be doing. 2021 is a new year, and it can only be onwards and upwards from here.

Enjoy yourself.

Christmas only comes once a year. Just enjoy it, it doesn’t matter if you have not afforded what you could normally, or if you have forgotten to buy something for the menu. You will survive that, just like any other day.

Merry Christmas.

What our Christmas normally looks like.

I’ve always loved the Christmas period. It’s my favourite time of the year. Everything about the Christmas season fills me with happiness. I’ve always secretly loved the struggle of finding the perfect gift for loved ones and the busy vibes that feels the 2 months up until Christmas.

I am very grateful to say that for the whole of my life I have spent every Christmas period with my mum, dad and brother. With other members of the family joining us later in the day for Christmas lunch.

this year is the 4th Christmas that I am spending with my beautiful fiancé. We started hosting Christmas together as soon as we started living together. Originally at Emma’s dads farm, and this year it will be at our house. Eeeeee, I am actually quite excited.

it’s gonna be so different again this year, I think I’m going to miss having Christmas at the farm, but in the same breathe I am excited to start our new Christmas traditions too.

Christmas shopping normally starts September/October time for me and my Emma. We do a little bit at a time. Normally starting with random things that we pick up in the shops knowing there make lovely presents. We then sit down together with a notebook and go through the haul, allocating them to who we are going to gift them too.

There are plenty of things that make me realise how much we have had to be grateful for in the past. Normally from November onwards we tend to have a Callander filled with days out with family and friends, normally for shopping or meals, etc. So thanks to corona we have had a lot to miss this year. Especially the annual trip to poundberry!

we normally prepare the veg and table on Christmas Eve so we then only have to focus on is cooking the lunch and enjoying time with loved ones. we also make mince pies together. 💛

When it comes to Christmas Eve, the past few years my parents have come to us at the farm, we then sit and enjoy a Camembert and meat platter buffet, whilst having a few drinks and play a few games together. This year won’t be any different as my parents and brother are staying with us here but maybe for a bit longer then a night or 2, who knows.

Christmas morning, we would get up early and walk down the stairs to share Em’s Dads presents with him and get the turkey into the oven, we would have an alarm set for around 6. We’d always come down and find that Pete was already sorting the turkey for us as well.

a few hours would past, and once every one had woken up and had a coffee, I’d bake some croissants in the oven and have these ready for us to east for our Christmas breakfast with Buck’s Fizz!

we sit around in a circle and take it in turns to open presents from our sacks, and it would normally take a few hours to do so as well. But it’s a nice way lot really appreciating the gifts received, and what others are opening.

once we finished opening presents was normally about the time my Nan and uncle would arrive to us, for then more present opening and the drinks start pouring.

we’d sit and eat our Christmas dinner around the big table in the dining room. Until we couldn’t eat anymore. Then continue to the living room for family games and chat. Until eventually the day is gone.

my favourite part of Christmas has always been the Boxing Day party at my nans house however, I have way to many memories of being extremely drunk at my nans, and with her.
pill never forget the screwed up face she made after I convinced her to drink a sours shot.

or the time I got in trouble because I apparently made my grown ass uncle by drink in the corner shop (he full well offered when I walked with him, and I was drunk for goodness sakes!)

I am grateful for all the Christmas memories I have made with my loved ones.

although we know this year won’t be the same. We will definitely still be making memories and enjoying the day!

Things to do with your family over Christmas day!

Christmas is the time of the year that we are all focused on spending time with our loved ones. So having some ideas prepared is a really good way of keeping on top of having fun and avoiding any unnecessary family drama. So today I am sharing things to do with your family over Christmas day. To help you stay organised and feel excited about the days to come.

Play board games

Playing board games is my favourite suggestion especially for Christmas day, once the dinner has been eaten! What best but to keep everyone around the table, coming together and enjoying themselves.

Jenga

Jenga can be such an intense game to play with the family. Ensuring that you’re not knocking over the tower, being careful to lean. Only to feel frustrated when you’re knocked and the whole tower falls to pieces. Sound about right? I absolutely love this game, we play it quite often anyway… However, the later in the night your playing on Christmas, depending on how much drink you have had, increases the challenge on actually keeping the tower up.

Monopoly

Ohhhh Monopoly, The game of all board games. Arguments have gone on for hours over this game. To be fair that being said it is totally a game that can last forever and a day. Is it all about strategy? Or is it just luck?

Cluedo

It was Miss Scarlet, in the library, with the gun! another game that had you guessing and concentration is a must in this gam, perfect for the families who like to compeer against each other where ever possible though!

Pictionary

I will never forget the Christmas that we played Pictionary. I somehow managed to confuse Northern lights, with the red lights, So I tried to draw a lady stood under the lamp post, like the red light district… Yeah I am not sure how I confused the 2… Maybe it was the wine I had been drinking over christmas dinner. Pictionary is such a laugh, especially if your playing with me to be fair.

Enjoy the seasonal television

In this house its all about the soap specials, hour long Christmas day Eastenders, that has always been my favourite, Since I was a child. its funny but I get excited at the end of Christmas Day, when I know it won’t be long and we will be chilling with tv. Although some years we also avoid the tv and make sure we’re doing more together than zoned out.

Take a long walk.

Especially when it’s after the Christmas dinner. Everyone has overeaten on the mass amount of food made all for one day. So having a walk after your meal not only makes you feel better but also is a great activity to share with your family and make some memories along the way.

No matter what it is you end up doing. Enjoy. Have a lovely stress free day.

The Ingredients to a perfect festive night in.

We all love the idea of having the perfect festive night in, but what does this actually mean? I was sat in the car earlier when I came up with the idea for posting about this. So Today I am sharing my thought on the ingredients to a perfect festive night in.

You will need.

  • 1 set of cosy pyjamas.
  • Your favourite mug and a hot chocolate.
  • Cosy throw to snuggle under.
  • Choice of snacks.
  • Winter smelling candle.
  • The tv remote.

First things first.

Have yourself a nice warm shower or bath. Get dressed into your cosiest snuggly pyjamas. Oh, and of course pamper yourself a little with a decent face mask. My ideal would be a bath bomb from lush. then a clay facemask.

Treat yourself to a takeout dinner.

Never mind cooking, tonight is all about chilling and relaxing with you and your loved one, or just you.

So order your favourite food to enjoy, and then add in a few munchies to enjoy throughout the night!

Ensure you have made your film evening space nice and cosy.

A tidy space, with just everything you need around you. It does make a massive difference to actually being able to unwind. Get comfy and cosy, oh and definitely add in a throw, to snuggle under.

Put on your favourite Christmas movie.

It doesn’t have to be a festive one, but since it is this close to Christmas now, having a festive night with sparkling tree in the background. Candles lit and the atmosphere. Especially if you are cuddled up with your loved one.

Snuggle up with your loved ones.

Spending time with your loved ones this time of year is so important. Cuddling up and spending time just being is so good for your connections with your loved ones. Sometimes we just need to take the time to reconnect. Life is stressful. Especially the year we have had.

Switch off.

Forget your phone, forget your work, forget any stresses you have going on right now! Switch off and unwind. The perfect atmosphere does not need your phone going off.

The Christmas holiday tag.

The christmas holiday is my favourite time of the year. Festive cheer, feeling merry (normally on gin) and sparkly lights everywhere…

So Today I am excited to be answering questions from the Christmas holiday tag.

What’s your favourite Christmas Movie?

Especially since I’ve been with Emma I have had such a soft spot for all of the Christmas movies. Emma loves them and will happily start watching them around October time. I specifically love any Christmas movie that has a bit of magical romance in.

Yep I’m one of those mushy ones.

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

No. I wish! To be honest I am so jealous of places like America where it actually snows over the Christmas period. I would love a white Christmas. I bet it would feel so magical.

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

The past few years my family have come over to us for Christmas Day.

This year is the first Christmas where we are spending it in our first home. My parents and brother will be here too. I can’t wait.

I don’t really think it’s about where you spend the holiday. It’s who you spend it with.

What is your favourite Christmas song?

The minute I hear the jingles of Mariah Carey.

Ohhhhhhh. I don’t want a lot for Christmas. There is just one thing I need.

It is and always has been my favourite Christmas tune.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

We sometimes open just one present. Normally the pyjamas we have gotten each other. So we can wear them to bed and lounge around in a new cosy set for Christmas morning.

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Um no…. Rudolph is one… Dasher… Vixen… Prancer… and thats it, I cant think of who the other ones are.

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?

making home made mince pies with Emma. Then eating the lush parsley balls on Christmas Day that have been a traditional dish in her family for years. They are amazing.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

fake. But it’s a beautiful tree. One year I would like to share the experience of having a real tree in our house though.

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?

So as I just mentioned. Em’s family dish of parsley balls have been a real treat the past few years. But I’ve always enjoyed creamed cabbage and bacon. Jamie Oliver recipe which my mum makes perfectly.

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?

Its definitely the giving during the Christmas holiday that I love the most. I love watching the persons face who is receiving the gift light up!

What is the best Christmas present you ever received?

I am lucky and so very grateful to have received so many beautiful and lovely gifts throughout my life already. I will always remember my first laptop though. It was funny because 2 weeks after Christmas, my dad was trying to fix the screen and ended up breaking the whole of it, meaning it had to be replaced again within the month!

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

I think Lapland or Iceland would be the top 2. But I think Id swap them for a chance to visit somewhere hot at the same time.

Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I’m one of the in between wrappers. I start of with all good intentions to have every single present wrapped to perfection. After a few presents though I seem to loose my rug with them.

Most memorable Christmas moment?

the memory of finding out we were going to Disney for the new year as children. It was such a beautiful trip. And the excitement was unreal.

What made you realise the truth about Santa?

To be honest, I knew way before me and my dad had a chat for it, but I remember my response being. ‘we have got to keep it a secret’ referring to the fact my brother way still very young.

What makes the holidays special for you?

being with my loved ones, and just enjoying our time together.

I would like to nominate these lovely people to take part:
