Blogmas Week 1: Planning

I have been a bit busy trying to finish up my research project. That is why I have taken a little break from blogging but hey, it was only for a week. Guess what? Your girl has finished school and, in a few months to come, will be graduating from Strathmore University Business School. As I am typing this, I am so excited and happy because it has been a long and challenging journey and I am so excited to see what life after college has in store for me.

 So, in case you are wondering what next now that you are done with school? Well, Let’s not think about it a lot, but I definitely have some plans for next year. For now, I am going back home to Burundi for the holidays. I school in Kenya. If you haven’t read my story yet, make sure you check it out It has been a year already that I haven’t been home, and you can imagine how excited I am to go back and catch up with family, friends and my bed of course.

Blogmas Week 1

So, it is that time of the year again where it is all about feasting and where you get to see all these beautiful symbolic decorations.  Like most people, Christmas is my favourite holiday season. Not only because it is the most beautiful period of the year, but also it is a moment of enjoying and sharing with your loved ones. Since we are already in the Christmas spirit and are all excited about this season, I decided to do a Blogmas series on my blog. This one will be a bit different because I won’t be blogging every day but rather will be posting twice a week to try to be more consistent. I am still new to this whole thing,so don’t judge me. Okaaay? Thanks

So, for this first post I decided to share with you some of the things you need to plan for this coming holiday.

Have a to do list for this whole month.

If you are someone who likes planning for everything like me, then you need to have a list of the things you are planning to do for this holiday. This means you need to plan ahead when your will be doing your shopping, or when you will be travelling for your holiday destination so as to avoid last minute preparations. It frustrates me when I don’t have everythingin control and I hate it.

Have a to do list

Set out your budget.

So, you have planned for when you want to go for shopping, so what next? You definitely need to know how much money you want to spend on your gifts, on your travelling expenses if you are travelling somewhere.

Have a christmas gift guide

For the purpose of planning again, you need to have a list of the people you want to gift and what you are gifting them. My friend Reine wrote a whole series on the gift guide, so feel free to get some ideas on

Share something with the less fortunate

Again, Christmas is all about sharing. In your busy schedule, plan to share the little you have with the less fortunate. This is a tradition we usually do in my family every Christmas holiday where we identify a group of people who are in need and share something small with them. It does not have to be so many people, they can also be two or even one, God will thankyou for that.

Plan some free time to catch up with friends

There is nothing more fun than sharing some few drinks or quality time with your friends during this period. Where you get to talk, tease each other on the new year resolutions and plans. It brings back that sense of friendship alive and makes it more beautiful.

I would like to know what are some of your plans for this holiday season. Kindly share with me in the comments section.

Have a productive week ahead.
