Birmingham Christmas Market

The run up to Christmas is definitely my favourite time of year. It still feels quite autumnal, the leaves are still (just) on the trees, markets are opening and everyone is generally feeling a little bit excitable. Last weekend I headed to Birmingham to catch up with some of my fave blogger pals. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I have met the best people on this crazy blogging journey over the past 3 years. It's lovely that I can count such brilliant, imaginative, clever, GORGEOUS people as mates, and even lovelier that even though they're dotted around the country, we all make time to hang out and get a little bit tipsy together.

And a big shout to Maria who's not in the photo, but I definitely put in my top 5 blogging pals. We've known each other now for over a year and she's such a gem. We're travelling to the South West Bloggers Christmas party together in December. All tickets have now gone but make sure you follow the hashtag #SWXmas to stay involved with the festivities!

Are you guys feeling festive yet?
