I usually do a weekend edition but I have decided to change things up and switch to a monthly round up!
This month in life and on the blog
- My niece was born!!!! Hope Alice was born on the 4th December, weighing 6lbs 7oz! I’m hoping to get over to London in the next week or two for a weekend of niece snuggles! Cannot wait to meet her!!!
- Christmas has come and gone. It was pretty good, quiet and it didn’t snow so bonus!
- I changed my blog design! I wanted something that reflected “me” and I think this does. I like girly, pink, whimsical things and I think this fits the bill. What do you think?
- I also decided to post blogging and reading resolutions! Do you have any of the same?
Blog posts this month
Reviews and Discussions
- I posted the End of Year 2013 Book Survey! Check out my fave books of the year and see did we share the same opinions!

Okay I would like to point out that I am NOW on a book buying ban but I did take advantage of EVERY kindle deal in December so this is obscene but I did buy them all on sale (90% 1.99 or less) and had $40 of giftcards so don’t judge lol!
What did everyone else get?
