I loved Sophie Cliff's post on setting goals about feeling rather than doing, and so this year I'm not going to strive for more followers, write out a list of places to visit, or aim to finally lose the baby weight (is it still considered baby weight after three years?!). Instead I'm going to focus… Continue reading 2019 goals toolkit [+ giveaway]

12 Days of Christmas #8: Virginia Hayward hamper

I love Christmas Eve almost as much as Christmas Day.
