Friday Favourites

It's the final week of Christmas sales in Myth of the Wild - in fact, today is the penultimate deadline! After midnight tonight, the only orders that will be processed before next year and shipped out in time for Christmas are items purchased from the 'Ready To Ship' section, which goes live later today! Free UK shipping will persist until Monday morning, but the 10% off sale ends midnight tonight, as does the offer of free gifts on all orders. So get in quick!

Now I've gotten that out of the way, phew. It has been the worst Christmas my shop has seen, but I have been kept busy and I have done my best to keep my spirits buoyed. All that said, I haven't had a moment to write for a few weeks, so that must be a good sign. I managed to get a few pages of notes written at the hair dresser's, though! Snatch moments where I can, and that was the first time in a week and a half. Otherwise I've been working on restocking the best-sellers, but as sales have suddenly dried up, it feels almost for nothing, even though I know that they will sell, and that I've got stock ready for the new year, which will give me an easier start. Still, it is what it is, and I should be greatful, really!
I have, however, had ample opportunity to watch Christmas movies. Not writing means I can put these things on in the background and avoid working in silence, which I just can't stand unless I'm writing. And my two favourites are Miracle of 34th Street and Arthur Christmas, one of the most underrated Christmas films there is. Also, high-protein hot chocolate designed for having just before bed, thank you, some invisible and oh-so-comfy knickers with festive foil stars, and the best Christmas perfume - I'm not one for perfume at all, but when I bought Lush's Lord of Misrule shower cream and fell in love with the scent...well...I had to. One spritz lasts all day. It's remarkable, and smells just like the cream!

Oh, and also, arm yourself with information this Christmas and check out these two articles from Shape Magazine:
5 Myths About Holiday Weight-Gain
Exactly What to Do When You Overeat, According to Nutritionists
I learned a few things from both of them, and I'll certainly put them into effect and/or keep them in the forefront of my mind, like the fact that fasting and skipping meals because you overate the day before is a no-no, and turning to a high intensity workout the next day won't do much to help offset anything, especially if you're still feeling stuffed, because it's probably just bloating. You just don't put fat on that quickly.
