The fashion and beauty blogger told her 352k followers on Halloween that it was "almost [tree] tim", adding that her Christmas tree was going up "next week" and she did not hang about. "It's almost time #imnotjoking #mytreeisgoingupnextweek #overhalloweenalready," she wrote in a Halloween post. Taking to her Instagram stories on Sunday, the mum-of-two shared video footage of a gorgeously decorated tree with the caption "I wasn't joking".

Under normal circumstances one could say it's all types of wrong to put your Christmas tree up while the kids are taking their halloween face paint off. But with the year we've had, and the prospect of spending at least the next four weeks in a Level 5 lockdown, it's no wonder people are choosing to start the Christmas cheer early. It's been a tough year for everyone, but Rosie had a particularly hard time of late as she recently went through a breast cancer scare. Rosie revealed that she found a lump on her breast in her sleep and was left frozen in fear as she awaited biopsy results, thankfully she later found out the lump was benign. At the time, Rosie said: "Last week I found a lump in my breast. Even talking about it now I just get so emotional because I've just been a wreck for the last week. "I never in a million years thought I would find a lump. I thought I would have been someone who was quite mentally strong, I thought I was a coper. I haven't coped very well." Rosie pleaded with followers to get checked and to more importantly, get familiar with their breasts and what is (or isn't) normal. This is a press release from the Six Rivers National Forest: Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor Ted McArthur has announced that Christmas tree permits will only be available for purchase online from Recreation.gov this holiday season. This opportunity to purchase Six Rivers Christmas tree permits online this year through Recreation.gov replaces in-person transactions at offices that remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Online sale of Six Rivers' Christmas tree permits begins on November 1. "We jumped at the opportunity to have our Christmas tree permit sales online this year, especially with our offices still closed. Families will still be able to get a permit and venture out to the Six Rivers to cut their own Christmas tree for the holidays," said Forest Supervisor Ted McArthur. He added, "While this might be a family tradition passed down for generations for some, it could be the start of a fun, new tradition for others!" Prior to purchasing a Christmas Tree permit for the Six Rivers National Forest at www.recreation.gov/tree-permits/srnf, carefully review the Need-to-Know and Planning Your Trip information provided on that page. Visitors to the Recreation.gov site will need to create a new account—or log in to an existing account—to complete their transaction. Permits are $10 plus a $2.50 service fee. All sales are final with no refunds. This year, fourth-grade students are eligible for a Christmas tree permit for $2.50 under the Every Kid Outdoors program. Every Kid Outdoors introduces fourth graders to the public lands in their own backyards and beyond. For more information about Every Kid Outdoors, visit. There are some places on the Six Rivers National Forest that are closed to Christmas tree cutting, including administrative sites, wilderness areas, research natural areas, or botanical/geologic/cultural areas, active timber sales, within 200 feet of any building, campground, state highway, river, stream, pond, lake, or other water body. In addition, three areas have been closed due to public safety concerns over the Slater, Red Salmon Complex, and August Complex fires that burned on the forest this year. Maps of areas closed to tree cutting and the fire closure areas may be found at www.fs.usda.gov/main/srnf/passes-permits/forestproducts, under the heading Christmas Trees – 2020. To ensure your visit to the forest is an enjoyable and safe experience, please follow these important tips: Let someone know where you're going and your estimated return time. Bring cold weather clothing, even if the day is nice when you start out. Bring emergency food and water, first-aid kit, tire chains, and shovel. Have a full tank of gas in your vehicle and don't forget to bring a map.
