I'll be alone for Christmas for the first time too. My family lives on the other side of the country - haven't seen them since last Christmas and I canceled my trip because I don't want to put anyone at risk. I'm going to go for a big walk in the morning and then zoom with some family and friends later - make myself a nice meal and probably watch The Sound of Music - lol. What else can we do? Just know you're not alone. "Someday soon we all will be together, if the fates allow...until then we'll have to muddle through somehow." xo
aw, I love your wee "greenery" spot and Stig looks great. It is crap that xmas is cancelled, here in Northern Ireland our 6 week lockdown begins on Boxing Day, so at least we get xmas day with limited family. Your hoodie looks so comfortable and cosy, I'm sure your lovely Mammie is going to love it. keep safe and stay well x
I'm so sorry that your Christmas was cancelled. I'm also a single woman living by myself and so glad that here in Germany, although we're in lockdown, they're easing restrictions a little bit for Christmas. So I can spend Christmas with my parents and my brother. I'm sure I would've felt just like you not being able to celebrate Christmas with my family. This year is the first year that I have a Christmas tree at my apartment..I'm glad I do. Thank you for your videos! <3
Sending much love to you, stay safe Lauren. Thank you for continuing to do vlogmas esp as things get more challenging, every single video is appreciated, it remains a highlight & you always elevate my mood. I'm currently in a tier 2 area, but choosing to remain mainly at home with my partner & puppy Bella. We can both work from home thankfully. we aren't seeing friends/family but are arranging lots of things via zoom like Christmas dinners, cocktail making sessions, cooking meals together & catch ups instead, so that hopefully next Christmas, we'll be able to celebrate it all together 🤗 ❤️. Take care everyone xx. Ps great bum Lauren 🙌😉
Hi Lauren! I'm in Scotland, so we are having one day allowed for Christmas (but not recommended) and then 3 weeks of almost-lockdown/tier 4 (which already existed in our systems, so BJ might have stolen the idea from us, sorry!). Spending Christmas Day alone, but not really bothered about it and quite looking forward to the quiet and being with myself. I've done loads of Christmas alone because I was travelling, and it's always been great without putting any expectations on it. Some nice music, some nice food, going for a long walk or hike, having a dance by yourself. Alone can also be magic. Sending lots of love to you and all that are struggling right now. I know it's not easy, but it's gonna be ok. Trust yourself and what you feel like doing in that moment and the next, it's the most important. All the best to you and everyone.
Very sad to hear about lockdown 😢 You are doing the right thing, hard, difficult but right - keeping your lovely parents safe (and yourself). We will be here Christmas Day (cheesy smile). Talk to us! Let’s keep each other strong. Our motto here in New Zealand is “be kind” - look after yourself and others. Give yourself a hug Lauren (and eat lots of chocolate) xxx PS Stig 🎄 looks great 😀
I feel so sad for my UK friends, I follow so many of you. I used to live in Croydon and I really miss London a lot but right now I'm quite happy I'm not there.
I'm in Finland and thankfully we don't have any new restrictions for the holidays so I'm spending christmas with my family. I'm very grateful but also sad for so many people around the world that are alone at this time. I just hope this pandemic crap is over soon.
Sending lots of love to you gorgeous lady, I dot really understand the tiers as I'm a cleaner and even in tier 4 I still have to work in people's houses (even if they're home) yet I cannot go and visit my mum or sister. I want to hunker down with my kids and stay home but can't and like you my anxiety had been through the roof each day brings new challenges and worries. But I have 12 days at home without pay now which was my choice and I'm hoping to heal a little and just 'be'. I really really love your vlogs Lauren I look forward to then each day 😍 love lots xxxx
I hope you’re okay, Lauren 💜 I’m in tier 4 as well. It’s just such sudden news and as somebody who also has anxiety it can be difficult to cope with change. I think this year has just taught me to make the most out of/ appreciate what I have. Stig is a representation of that as he DOES brush up good. Just wake up on Christmas Day and say ‘good morning handsome 😉’ and try to think of 3 things you’re grateful for🎉
Sorry Christmas is cancelled Lauren. In the meantime, I have become addicted to the daily vlogs and so look forward to them daily. Don't care if it's "short" or a long one, just absolutely love them. Thank you for all that you do, and I wish you and your loved ones...Bubble Friend too....Merry Christmas, even with it being cancelled.
Those masks look amazing! Sidenote to anyone who may care: I recently ordered some leggins & tanks from "Yvette sports" cause some influencer had a discount code. Ugh. Beware; definitely straight from China and their XL looks like a svelte medium. Dunno how I'm gonna squeeze myself in there.
P.S: so sorry for your Christmas sadness :( I saw the articles today about the new strain our of the UK. Everyone is so tired, depleted and sad this year. I hope we can all manage to have a decent "fun" virtual xmas with loved ones. I chose not to go home for the holidays and it's breaking my heart but I honestly feel so relieved that I didn't have to travel/fly/worry and stress the entire time if I had chanced it and went. HUGS
So sorry your Christmas as it was intended was cancelled. I think it is healthy to be disappointed and a bit sad about that for a bit. However like someone else said here don’t just pass Christmas like it is just another day or time, celebrate by making it cozy, calm, reflective, indulgent, beautiful and happy. We will celebrate with our families again. This is temporary, shit but temporary. Thank you so much for keeping up your vlogs. Can’t wait to see Stig go full glam. Sending you a big hug ❤️ and Vera is too
Hi Lauren, this is such sad news for you all in London. I just want you to know though; that although Christmas was a bright spot for you after all that’s happened this year, your videos and your wonderful self were a bright spot for me this year. And probably for a lot of other people as well. Sending you a HUGE hug 🥰
I once had a Christmas alone, for a variety of reasons that kept me from my family that year. I was sooo afraid I'd spiral into anxiety. When it came though, it was actually oddly nice. I didn't go the "It's just another day" route, because I knew I wouldn't believe myself. So I celebrated. I made up my little place, made myself a roast chicken of which I ate an indecent amount, watched movies, read a book, cheesily danced to Christmas music (yeah, that looks more fun in the movies than it acutally is), spent quite some time in the bath, and chatted with my family on the phone. Felt so empowered afterwards. Don't be scared. You might actually have a lovely time.
Lauren I feel you ... it’s so incredibly hard on everyone. We are all going on 9 months with no end in site ... I feel like we are all keeping our chins up over and over again and then bam - more shit news. I am not seeing any of my sons and it’s just so hard! Thank you for doing such a great job at Vlogmas - and how long has it been since you got 9 🤣🤣😂
it is depressing. This should have been announced weeks ago instead of building up people's hopes and watching the virus spread around a bit more. My daughter has been in high school since Sept, and each week sections of pupils have had to go home to quarantine due to someone having the virus. Last week 60% of her year were off school
We're in Suffolk, things are on the rise here so it's just a matter of time before we're in a higher tier.
Stig is gorgeous by the way. Love it. x
Oh Lauren, I am so sorry your Christmas has been canceled! I really enjoyed hearing about your family's Christmas traditions a few videos back, and I know it means nothing at this upsetting moment in time, but those lovely things will still be there next Christmas- with a newfound love and appreciation for them, no doubt! Love and hugs from me to you. <3
I’m very sorry to hear that your Christmas has been cancelled. I do want to add that the comment about you wearing short shorts and you didn’t know why and “Christmas is cancelled, let’s have a breakdown” did make me chuckle a tiny little bit. But in all seriousness, I hope you take care of your mental health over the next few days (and always!) 💕💕
We arnt all in the same boat, but we are alltrying to get through the same stormy sea. Some are in a sturdy cruise ship, some in a wavering trawler and some in a life boat. Keep sailing, check in and make sure no-one is drowning, keep being kind to one another and hopefully we will have blue sky's and calm waters soon.
Love you to death, as far as I can without you knowing me. You will hate me for this, I really hurts me that you have pain inside somewhere that certain thing won't resolve. But that's just like me, so I relate on so many levels. I hope you have a nice Christmas no matter what the restrictions are. Sending you lots of love from Pennsylvania!
Hi, new to your channel, from across the pond in Canada & am happy to have found you👋. The cold water/looking in the mirror example is wonderful for anxiety. You may also find it useful when spiralling to look around & name 5 things you see, feel 4 things in your environment, smell 3 things, taste 2 things and listen to the most predominant sound around you. Using all your senses brings you back to the present as people generally spiral from anticipating the worst ‘what if/why didn’t I’ etc. We are also in lockdown so nobody allowed for Xmas/New Years that doesn’t live in the home. Sad as it is, there’s really no choice ..... SURVIVAL IT IS👏. Be blessed 🙏
Hopefully this will be for the best. I know it’s really crummy to have to cancel Christmas though. Fingers crossed 🤞 this will be the last holiday negatively impacted by quarantine, etc. Thank you for doing your part in following the rules and social distancing and masks and all that. 💛
I’m sorry you’re affected by the new restrictions...I have so much to say about how strongly I disagree with these new measures but I don’t want to bring anyone down.
Go and enjoy your Christmas with your family...turn off the news and keep your vibrations and energy high 💫
They can try and restrict us but they can’t take our spirit ❤️
Can people that live on their own still bubble with 1 household? It is shit, I'm waiting for a test result. My daughter's school is rife with it as are all the local schools to me. In fact when she returned in September I said we're going to get this, we're just sitting ducks. I'm sending you a virtual hug. It's still all like a bloody movie that I wish I'd stopped watching a long time ago. Stay strong 💛 Xxx
