Recently I actually succeeded in finishing one of my personal resolutions for 2017. After a few years of attempting it, I’ve read 52 books this year. I’d like to say that they were all in some way intellectual, akin to to War and Peace, or at least by authors of good standing… but I can’t.

It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of brunch and with Charlotte aka Mrs Pantry on our team – it’s no surprise that The Pantry is one of my favourite hang outs.

The past few weeks have contained so many parties, shows, and events it just seems to have been non-stop. Today also marks the end of the #xmashashtagchallenge that I’ve been co-hosting with Cathryn from Little Paper Swan.
