Before I had even considered blogging, every year I set aside a few hours to think about the year that is coming to an end and look ahead at the next one. Usually I write my thoughts in my journal, which I will still do later this afternoon. But I also wanted to share some of the best experiences, books and beauty finds in one post. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Christmas everyone! Hope you're having a fantastic break. Right now I am sitting at my mum's kitchen table in Albacete, Spain, having a very restful time. My blogging schedule has been a bit all over the place over the past month, so I will try to make up for it with not one, not two but THREE posts this week! Now I have said it there is no going back....

Christmas has been a bittersweet time for my family during the past few years. It is always a special time because I live in a different country to them, so we always look forward to spending a couple of weeks together, but any of you who have lost someone very close to you will know how hard it can be and how much more you miss them during this time of the year.
For the past two years I dreaded Christmas and spent Christmas Day as far from social media as possible, as each photo of someone looking very happy with their families was a reminder of what it used to feel like and what it would never feel like again for me.
