I've been so excited (ok I've been absolutely bursting) to start putting together some Christmas content for SPARKLE on darling that I couldn't help myself but to write a post dedicated to my first Christmas as a blogger and what's to come over the next few weeks for my sparkling readers during this festive period.
Welcome the very first post of 'A SPARKLE on darling Christmas' series.
Firstly, I made it! As a new blogger the first few months can be pretty intense, emotionally and physically. During this period I have also been through what has been the busiest time of my working career in my corporate job along with getting a promotion at the same time, I have also been at one of my lowest physical points when my body decided to stop and I ended up unwell and not myself for over a month, from which I am still on the mend from, but even so I didn't give up on this passion project of mine amongst all of this even if it meant writing content in bed, I made it happen.
SPARKLE on darling was launched in July this year so I am nearly at my 6 month milestone, therefore I'm going to start to celebrate early and what better time to do so then at Christmas, my favourite time of the year. I've been consciously collecting some beautiful little things to make my posts festive and of course, sparkly. From SPARKLE on darling themed decorations to glitter and backdrops. I cannot wait to share all of this with you, some behind the scenes and so much more.
Shall we get into what's to come for this sparkly Christmas I keep talking about? Read on and I hope you become as excited as I am..
On the blog
There will be a dedicated blog post featuring some of my personal favourite gift ideas for her (or him). Think everything from everyday wellbeing, wholesome eating to simple living.
There will be a Christmas 'tips + tricks' blog post all about staying sparkly throughout this busy time and how to take time out for you. It's great to be the organiser and host behind it all but you deserve to enjoy this special time as well as much as your loved ones.
There will be my first ever recipe on the blog up and live for you to try out over the Christmas period. Christmas bliss balls (or chocolate I haven't decided yet) here we come! Mixing bowls at the ready. I'm going to make it as friendly as possible for those with dietary requirements and for those who (like me for most of this year) don't have a food processor or the like to bring it together. My recipes on SPARKLE on darling will always be achievable and easy to make for anyone wanting a healthier (super yummy) alternative.
I will be running some little competitions over on the SPARKLE on darling community Instagram @sparkleondarling. So make sure to head on over and follow there so you don't miss out on some sparkly gifts for you or your loved ones.
For any new blog posts I publish I also post on Instagram once it has gone live, so I would love your support there too. Every follow here or on the community Instagram @sparkleondarling makes me, a real person behind the screen, do a little happy dance because it means that SPARKLE on darling is growing a community and I want you to be a part of that with me too.
Last but not least, a big heartfelt THANK YOU to all my readers and followers out there who have supported me so far this year and continue to read my content regularly, it means the absolute world to me to have you here sharing this journey with me.
