Why I am Having an Ancestry DNA Test

*Collaborative post.

Have you ever thought of taking an ancestry DNA Test? I have many times. I have always been curious about my ancestors and I how I got here. So it is amazing we now have the technology to get an ancestry test done. I got a DNA testing kit some months ago and I will be sending the sample required over to the company in the next few days. My plan is to share the results on Fashion and Style Police, once I have digested it all. So keep your eyes open for that post.

Why I am having an Ancestry DNA Test

So why am I having an Ancestry DNA Test? Myself and M are the only people I know in real life that are interested in this test. Many people I know have zero interest in having one done and wonder why I would even think of having such a test. I have always been interested in my family history. The idea of being able to discover my background and genetic makeup is incredible. I think it is valuable information everyone should have and I am grateful we now have the technology today to discover all the information we need. I am also happy it is not too pricey to have the test done too! That makes it even more possible for more people to get the genetic test done.

 

What I am hoping to gain from the genetic analysis

The results are usually 99.9% accurate which is great. I am hoping to learn more about myself through my family history and makeup genetics. Hopefully, the results from the test would help me improve my life by making necessary lifestyle changes.

 

What are your thoughts on ancestry DNA Tests? Have you had one done before or thought of getting it done? Let’s chat in the comments section below.

Decorating the home this Christmas on a Budget

I noticed most of our neighbours had their Christmas decorations up pretty early this year. We noticed decorations going up from as early as middle November, and I couldn’t understand why they were putting up the decorations so early (oh the electricity bill). But I think many people are just so excited about Christmas and I don’t blame them. I have been looking forward to this Christmas for some months now. It has been a very busy year with lots of ups and downs. So I am eager to chill out with my loved ones, listen to Christmas songs and watch the beautiful Christmas light. I am also looking forward to eating lots of yummy food in my home clothes and watching the kids get all excited as they open their Christmas gifts.

My son has been counting down to Christmas for weeks now, and he is getting really excited that the big day is now only a few days away.

Christmas Decorations

When it comes to Christmas decorations, we like to make more of an effort now that the Kiddies are older and more aware of the season. We had our Christmas decorations up and ready first week in December, which is very early for us. So the Christmas Tree and all its ornaments, indoor lights, the wreath, and we even got some new stunning outdoor lights from Amazon this year. The outdoor lights are battery operated which is great as I don’t like to deal with wires everywhere, and I find them easier to install, and cheaper to operate.

 

DIY Christmas Decorations

The Kiddies also made some DIY Christmas Tree ornaments at school the other day, and they look amazing on the tree.  DIY Christmas decorations is something I would love to do more of with the kids. It is a bonding experience with the kids and I think the DIY decorations add personal touches to the overall look of the house this season. It also helps that the twins really enjoy making them as well. Plus, it is an affordable way to decorate the house.

We got the twins involved in decoration the house this Christmas. They took part in decorating the Christmas tree, and it was fun to see how excited they were being involved.

Grandparents can also get their grandchildren involved in decorating their home. It is a great way to have fun and spend time as a family.

Decorating the home this Christmas on a Budget

Christmas is one of the most expensive times in the year, and the pressure is on for many to make it a memorable one for the whole family. Christmas decorations play a big role in the festivities, so it makes sense to ensure you decorate on a budget. Here are 3 ways you could go about doing this –

 

Don’t decorate too early

Putting up the Christmas Decorations in November is just too much for me. I think the first week in December should be the earliest time to get them up. Anything before that is way too early and expensive.

 

Switch the lights off

We switch off our indoor lights when we go to bed and our outdoor lights go off in the day time. I see many people who leave their lights all day and I wonder how high their next electricity bill would be.

 

Use battery operated lights where possible

Like I previously mentioned, our outdoor lights are battery operated. I got the lights from online some weeks ago, and the kiddies really like them. The lights came with a tiny remote control which is super handy. I popped in 3 Duracell batteries as soon as the lights arrived and they are doing the work perfectly. I find battery operated outdoor lights cheaper and easier to have around during Christmas.

 

 

How did you go about decorating your home this season? Do you have any budget Christmas decoration tips to share?
