Moving House During Christmas

If you are thinking of moving house, Christmas is definitely not the best time to do this. Everyone is busy setting up their house for the season and getting ready for the big day. Moving house should be the last thing on anyone’s mind. But if you do have to move house, then you have to move. The best way is to ensure your move goes as smoothly as possible.

Here are 6 tips that may come in handy for when you need to move house during the festive season and beyond.


Move as soon as possible

If you are moving house in December, it is best to do so as early in the month as possible, so you can relax in your new house and enjoy the festivities. You don’t want to be dealing with boxers and trying to settle down in your new house on Christmas Eve. If you can get the move out-of-the-way weeks before Christmas, then it makes the whole experience better for everyone, especially the little ones.


Hire the professionals

When it comes to moving house, it is always better when you have professionals dealing with the home move. It makes the whole process go smoothly and quickly once you have experienced hands doing the job. I always recommend hiring a moving company to get the move done. They cost money but it is money well spent in my eyes. A good moving company take the stress away from moving house.


Label all boxes

Label all boxes with the right information so you know what is in each box and which room they are to go in. It means less clutter as boxes will be moved into the rooms they should go into straight away. Also, unpacking would be a lot easier and faster.

Sort out childcare

If you have kids, and they are not in school or nursery, ensure you have a form of childcare to keep them safe and engaged elsewhere. The last thing you would need is to have kids about when moving house. It is not safe for them and it is a lot more stressful having to worry about the kids while dealing with moving house.

Get the Christmas decor up

It is best to have the Christmas decorations separate from other furniture, and ready to be set up once you are in your new home. The last thing you would need is to start looking for the Christmas Tree lights or ornaments. Decorating your new home as soon as you can would put the magic back into Christmas for the whole family.


 Arrange the bedrooms and kitchen

The first set of rooms to be sorted are the bedroom, with the kitchen following closely. That way you can abandon the clutter and get a good night sleep when you have had enough.

5 Winter Shoe Styles Every Woman Should Own

It is common knowledge that if you have warm feet, then the chance of the rest of your body being warm is quite high. With that in mind, I thought I would put together a list of some winter essential shoe styles that you need to own this winter. Check them out below and tell me what you think of the styles.


  1. The Black Heeled Knee-High

The black heeled knee-high is back on trendy and I am loving it. It has only come back into style in the past few years, after years of it being a no-go. Knee-high boots, when paired with the right outfit, can look chic and classy and can also help keep your calves warm.

Black knee-high boots are the most versatile. They can be dressed down with a pair of jeans. And dressed up for a night on the town with a skirt or dress. The choice really is yours!


  1. The Classic Chelsea Boot

Chelsea Boots are a great boot style to invest in throughout autumn and winter. They can pretty much be combined with any outfit. Chelsea Boots most commonly come in black and brown, both of which look amazing with black and blue jeans, or even a skirt and tights.

They often come with a small heel to give you an added bit of height, but it is also small enough for you to get away with it in the office or on longer walks.

The above Black Chelsea boots are ideal to wear with both jeans or dresses and skirts, as they are plain and design-free, plus they’re the perfect height on the ankle.


  1. The Black Heeled Boot

Take any outfit from day-to-night by simply swapping out your flats for a classic black heeled boot. Teamed with a fitted pair of jeans, they make the ideal smart-casual outfit..

Not only does it give you a little more height and give off the illusion that your legs are slimmer, but it will certainly add some style and chicness to whatever outfit you’re wearing.


  1. A Dark Trainer

While the statement white trainers are great for the warmer months, you need to think about how they could potentially get ruined from the wet mud that may get splatted onto them in winter. While they look nice to start with, white trainers are quick to get dirty.

Dark coloured trainers, such as black and navy, are great for disguising little spots of mud. This is why they’re a great addition to a winter wardrobe. I have a few in my shoe collection and they come in handy.


  1. The Biker Boot

Biker boots have become increasingly popular in stores over the past year, most designed with long studs and buckles. While they’re probably not best paired with delicate skirts and dresses, due to their chunkiness, they certainly look great with a big, thick jumper and jeans.
