Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you!

This is my usual out of office: I am taking January off from the blog. There will be one more post live on the 27th (and it’s a good’un!) and then all will be quiet over here until February.

I will be working on a few things (namely, a better, organised newsletter – please sign up on the right-hand side if you haven’t already!), and Instagram will still be ticking a long but I will try and be a bit more ‘present’ at home, do some decorating and appreciate a full month with Peggy before she starts nursery in February.

A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone for reading, 2018 has been a rollercoaster of a year and the support I have had from this community has been beautifully overwhelming. See you all in 2019.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family. Thank you for all the wonderful content over the past year and for making Instagram a wonderful place. X

  2. I am new to your Blog but dare I say it, the chunky cable sweater and sparkly skirt look disastrous, you will surely boil to death if you put the heating on?

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about your journey and inspirational style and advice, have a wonderful Christmas and peaceful 2019 – spend sometime with your family and that beauty of a daughter. Jan P

  4. Enjoy your break. I discovered you and your world from the ES., and having never in my (looooong) life followed anyone in the blogosphere I admit I am hooked. Although normally living in Portugal through you I feel that I can keep up with the ever changing pace of โ€œhomeโ€. All the best for 2019 ?

  5. Hi Alex, absolutely love the jumper and sparkly skirt combo! Enjoy the month off and especially family time with Peggy. Festive greetings to you all and look forward to hearing from you in February.
