Image result for decemberHey everyone,

I'm a bit late posting this up but I thought we could have a longer weekly challenge over the next couple weeks. I've seen quite a few photo a day challenges on Instagram on Pintrest and I thought we could do this on the boards for the rest of December. I've put together some themes for each day for the rest of this month. Share your photos below & don't forget to vote on the next challenge ideas!

  • 20th December - Best part of winter
  • 21st December - Something sparkly 
  • 22nd December - Christmas pet
  • 23rd December - December sunset 
  • 24th December - Something green
  • 25th December - Tradition 
  • 26th December - Movie 
  • 27th December - Reflection 
  • 28th December - Wintery morning 
  • 29th December - Best part of your day
  • 30th December - Baking
  • 31st December - Midnight 

If you're interested in getting involved in some of the fun things we have going on at The Mix such as suggesting a weekly challenge idea or writing something for the newsletter, let us know over on this form.

Have fun!

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Best part about winter for me is writing in candlelight with a hot drink, there's something really calming about it. Also its bucketing it down ootside, hearing it hit my window and knowing I don't have to go out in it is the best feeling :lol:

    The only sparkly thing I own, an early present from a friend :)

    This time last year I had already quit college but this year I have stuck with it and maybe plan to keep going after Christmas break 😂

    But in all seriousness I've done much better and I'm proud xo

    Best part of my day today was finally finding a pair of boots like this that weren’t going to break the bank !

    Aw it's so nice seeing all of your photos from this weekly challenge! I'll do more of these weekly challenges! :)

    @Lauren223 they were really nice and the bit of chutney in it added just the right amount of sweetness to them
