December: In A Glance


Hi there, lovelies! How was your Christmas? I hope that you had a marvellous holiday and looking forward to ringing in the new year. We had friends and family over, some stayed long past the weekend whilst others came to spend the Christmastide with us as we end 2016 and celebrate the new year. This was one of the best Christmas holidays that I have had in a long time, so I am very thankful.

Life, Balance, & Changes: 
2016 has been a different year for me with the blog, and with personal and professional transitions occurring this year, even in the most positive ways, I have often felt so behind in the blogging world. However, it's always a comforting feeling to know when people appreciate the hard work that you put into posts and from the bottom of my heart, all of you FASHION TALES readers mean so much to me.  

Blog Anniversary: Year Seven 
As I am away travelling and enjoying time off for the next two weeks, I have been reflecting on 2016. Life has been so eventful that I had almost forgotten about my blog anniversary this month as well. Happy Birthday, FASHION TALES!  

It has been quite a long journey, and even though this year was a much slower pace for the blog, that wasn't the case in some of the opportunities that I've been given due to having this platform. I am looking forward to 2017, and I am grateful for all of my readers that continuously come back and support my blog by reading, commenting, e-mailing, and sharing my posts.  

Here's wishing you a festive season and a prosperous new year! 


  1. Snap girl! I reached my 7 year blog anniversary this year, it's crazy how time flies! I do feel blogging is quite fast paced now, it can feel like it's hard to keep up.

    I wish you all the best for 2017.
