Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish you all a Fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year. I am going to take a nice break until early next year and will be looking forward to 'switiching' off and spending time with the hubby, family & friends. It's what Christmas is about, spending time with your loved ones, after all it's what I cherish most. It has been an incredible year which I am so grateful for and am really looking forward to what 2013 has to offer. 

Take care my lovelies and Merry Christmas y'all!

Doesn't mean I haven't admired from afar. In fact there have been so many pretty DIY calendars I have been lusting after. Here are a few of my favourites...

Heart Home Winter Issue Out Now!

Happy Thursday my lovelies! It's a fabulous day isn't it?! Yes, because the Winter issue of Heart Home magazine is out. It's funny how I still get nervous and excited every time a new issue comes out - will the feeling ever go away?! I hope not because I truly love what I do and it gives me such great pleasure working with such an amazing team.  What's even more rewarding is the support that we constantly get from you guys. Thanks so much and I truly mean it. So lets get the party started and head on over to enjoy some eye candy, hope you like!
