DSC_0429

Happy December everybody! Winter’s just around the corner! Even though it’s the coldest season, becomes pitch black by 5 o’clock and it’s quite hard to leave your warm bed in the crispy mornings, there is also a big number of benefits that make us all happy: All the cosiness that is in your house, Christmas lights basically everywhere – houses, trees, shops, random buildings, etc., wonderfully smelling candles in various colours, comfy sweaters, running in untouched snow, making snow angels, making Christmas biscuits, buying candy canes, buying presents for your loved ones and wrapping them in colourful paper and ribbons, watching Christmas movies, listening to your favourite Christmas songs and so much more! There are tons of positive things to say about this season that almost make up for its disadvantages.

The purpose of this month’s DIY posts of mine are to make you feel at least a little bit better about winter and inspire you to make astonishing things with your own hands. I promise, it’d be so much fun! (I did this one with my little brother and we both found it very entertaining)

If you are looking for some great holiday gifts or fun projects to do, I’ve prepared an awesome holiday DIY that is not only easy, but also fun for everyone! This hot chocolate recipe is perfect for cosy-ing up on the couch during those cold winter nights.
