Christmas Gift Ideas 2018

A very festive hello! Yup, can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? How did that happen. Yep, it’s that time of year again already! This year has been so hectic, I’m sure you’ve all found the same: it doesn’t seem like more than a few weeks ago that we were all enjoying an epic summer and planning our holidays. I don’t know about you guys but I think some years are more festive than others and this year it already feels as if it’s in full swing with everyone focussing on where to go, what to do, and most importantly what to buy for their loved ones! It's my birthday on 22nd December and to be honest, I LOVE getting my birthday out of the way first so maybe that's why I'm quite last minute with my gifts. I'm pleased to say, I'm fully organised this year as I gave my family experiences and they've already enjoyed them! I’m already overwhelmed by some of the beautiful gifts I’ve seen this year and I almost don’t know where to begin with this guide (hence it being so late, it's taken weeks to write haha) so, as last year, I’ve picked out somethings that I think you will like and put them in to easy read sections in my HUGE Christmas gift guide. Save this one to your favourites because as new things arrive with me I will top up this guide for you to see. Happy reading, I hope this helps you with lots of Christmas gift ideas.

If you’re a regular EmTalks follower, you’ll be used to seeing me mention my Mum and how she’s taught my brother and I a very strong work ethic. Something else she’s also very good at is chanting out different sayings to fit different situations, I’m sure you too will experience this from your own parents and some of these sayings stick with you. When I was younger these sayings just used to roll off me but I’ve realised now that they all have their particular meaning and one for sure that I’ve become to relate to in the past year is the phrase ‘nothing is ever simple in this life’ followed by a familiar eye roll…  Uhuh, never a truer word spoken and that’s why I thought I would write this rather ‘adult’ post about the housing market – renting or buying - and my experience to date because believe me, it really isn’t simple.  I wanted to write a blog post with everything you need to know about buying and renting a house, particularly in London but this should help you in other places too. If it helps just one person stay a little calmer through what seems to be the most complicated, unwieldy and unfriendly process to date that will make me happy. I’d heard a lot of people say buying a house is the most stressful thing, you’ll ever do and I honestly didn’t believe them, until now…
