Today's post is a bit different to the usual ones. I haven't sat down and just written what I had on my mind in a really long time so that is what I'm doing today.

A few days ago over on my Twitter, I announced that I will be taking part in the 12 days of Blogmas challenge. For the non-bloggers out there, this means that I will be publishing 12 Christmas related posts during the days leading up to the 25th. The reason why I decided to not do the full challenge where I blog everyday is because I wouldn't be able to handle the busy posting schedule. Instead I will be posting around 3 times a week. I already have quite a few Blogmas posts in the drafts and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you. 

As some of you may know, I am currently in the second year of sixth form and my A levels are only a few months away. (So scary to write that!) Currently I have a lot of work and studying to do and this week and the upcoming week are full of tests, hence the lack of posts. So if I miss a post or two please don't blame it on me!

Another exciting thing that I want to talk about is the giveaway that I'm currently hosting. A big thank you goes out to the people that filled out the blog survey. I really appreciate all the tips and advice that you have given me. I have already tweaked the blog layout a bit to make it look better. The menu bar now has an archive and a more colourful look while the font is now easier to read.

The last thing that I want to say is that many of you have voted for me to do more personal or chatty posts. So from now on I will try to include an update/life lately bit in each fashion posts. After all I feel weird just publishing a post full of pictures of me in various different poses!

Will you be doing Blogmas or Christmas related posts this year?
