While there will be many posts about upcoming sales, gift guides and the general frenzy that comes with the Christmas season I have decided to take a different approach. This will be my last post for 2015 where I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for supporting me and my blog, for leaving comments here, on Instagram where most people think I live (can’t blame you!) and for all the beautiful connections I have made and keep making with people and brands the world over. The holidays are bustling with activities as they are that I feel I want to focus on the here and now.
This year has been one filled with much sorrow and strife and we still have a bit to go…wherever you are in the world, whatever situation you find yourself in, I hope there is still love and light in your lives. We can’t always be the person we want to be or be with the people we want to be with, but with the festive season coming up I know this time of year isn’t always a happy one…a calm or safe one. So let’s love and hold those we cherish just a little harder, just a little tighter…and also give a thought to those who, for whatever reason have left us but came into in our lives for a deeper meaning we may not yet know or understand. With each passing year, the truth that it’s not the things that we can see that fill us but the things we feel that do, rings ever truer…and love is the strongest medicine that we can give and receive. Don’t be shy with it, shallow with it, ugly or manipulative with it…it is the greatest gift to feel genuine love and the world needs more of it.
So departing from my usual reviews I want to thank everyone for the love I have received through our connections. The internet can be a harsh place but it can be equally beautiful and inspiring too…let’s all keep making fairy dust and rainbows. I may be checking out of my blog for this year but I will be back in January and when I do, I have a special surprise planned to celebrate that I turn the grand old age of 33 along with my blog that turns 2. In the meantime, I’ll still be social over on Instagram so I’ll see you there!
To you all, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Love, light and gratitude
