December 19th • Posted in Lifestyle
Can you all really believe Christmas is THIS week?! Or is it just me?
I really don’t know where December is going, it still feels like it has just started. This is my very favourite period of the year and I always want enjoy it all at its fullest as much as I can: I always have so many things I want to do, so many ideas popping up along the way, and this year it kind of feels a little overwhelming… like I haven’t got time for anything!
Moreover I’m so extremely behind with gifts like I’ve never been in years! I’m usually the one having everyone’s Christmas list sorted at the end of November, yet this time I still have to tick most of the boxes in my lists! I believe this is basically the very first time in my life I’ve been experiencing last minute Christmas shopping… and it’s madness!
Plus, as you might were able to tell from my latest posts, I’ve been thinking a lot about the meaning of gifts and ‘giving’ this time. I want every present to be something useful and that won’t finish forgotten in a drawer somewhere. And let’s face it, lots of unwanted gifts end up that way each year. I don’t want to give something ‘just because’ anymore – I want it to be thoughtful and different and something that will be loved too.
I was recently introduced to Joosr and I immediately felt intrigued and fascinated. They not only aim to stop the unwanted gifts and paper waist during the festive period, but they also came up with such an interesting concept, to create a library of 20-minutes summaries of the best, most brilliant non-fiction books around.
Joosr is basically the place where to discover new interesting and thought-provoking reads, giving you the chance of reading five summaries per week: everything from health and fitness, family life, work and also freelancing, business, career. I have been given the chance to test it out these last couple of weeks, and I have to admit I now feel very inspired to start reading more books that will enrich my knowledge of what I’m truly passionate in life.
To me that’s surely freelancing and business and dreaming big, but there’s something for everybody really. So if you’re on the same boat as me with Christmas shopping this year, but you also have a particular care for the meaning of ‘giving’ and the waste, I couldn’t recommend Joosr as last minute gift idea enough!
Using my link, you can give Joosr as gift with a one-year subscription at £9.95 instead of the usual £40, plus they’re giving you an extra free subscription so that YOU can enjoy Joosr yourself next year! Find more info here.
Please note: I’ve been gifted a free subscription in exchange for this review, but this post isn’t sponsored nor I get any money if you purchase through my link. The opinions and love for the concept are all mine as per usual.
