Merry Everything and A Happy Always

30 December 2015

Seeing as around this time in 2014 I wrote a post entitled 'Had A Holly, Jolly Christmas' and felt it summed up the festive period rather nicely, I thought I'd follow suit again this year and have a little chat with you. How was your Christmas? I hope it was a really lovely one! Ours, as always, was very family-centric - lots of board games, port and cheese, quality time spent together enjoying each other's company whilst the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special plays in the background - you know the drill. It's my absolute favourite time of year and once again I'm sad to see it pass quickly, but I'm so excited for 2016 that I don't mind waving goodbye to the Michael Bublé Christmas album for another eleven months. Yep, eleven, because you'd better believe that I crack that little chestnut out in early November.

Christmas seems to have passed extra quickly this year because of Vlogmas, which is where you vlog up until the 25th, and honestly all of the strength that I could possibly muster has been spent on that - its been a whirlwind of fun and I'm really grateful to everyone who spent the month of December with me and my loved ones. The playlist is here if you didn't catch it, and a big thank you to all of you who welcomed me sharing my life more intimately with you with open arms and a whole lot of kindness. As always, it's very much appreciated and I couldn't be happier or luckier to have the audience that I do!

My body has well and truly called a 'time out' after the strain I've been putting it under so New Year's Eve is looking like it'll be a quiet one - does anyone else still not have any plans even though it's tomorrow? If so, high five for making me feel better about that! I get really into New Year's and although I'm not quite at the 'new year, new me' stage I do really love making plans and resolutions, as to me a new year truly feels like a 'clean slate'. Now that we're all grown up and my lovely group of friends are living in different parts of the country I've been spending my energy on seeing them whenever possible rather than creating videos, and as a result I feel super behind with all of the festive content - I'd planned a New Year's makeup look, 'What I Got For Christmas' and 'Best Bits of 2015' videos amongst many others (my December Favourites hasn't even been filmed yet!) but again, I've got such an understanding audience that I know you all 'get it' when I just simply don't have the good health to do it all. Thanks again for that pals, very fortunate to have you.

So, how are we all feeling about 2016? I've got this inkling that it's going to be a great one - 2015 was glorious in so many ways and things really are looking up. If you're making any resolutions do let me know, because as I mentioned I'm big on working hard to improve your life in small or large ways so I'm always keen to hear about how others are planning on doing that, and I truly hope 2016 is as wonderful as you are!

Thank you for all of your support this year, YouTube has been my biggest highlight of 2015 by a mile (I rambled on about how much it means to me here) and it really has been a pleasure. Cheers, everyone - here's to a merry everything and a happy always!
