Happy Christmas from Shenanigans HQ

With C Day fast approaching, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a very BIG


I hope I say if often enough, but just in case, have I told you lately how awesome you guys are and how much I appreciate you stopping by to check out my blog, Facebook or Insta feed from time to time?

Whether it’s every day, several times a week or every now and then, thank you SO much.

And whether you’re an SnS newbie, a long time supporter from when I started back in 2013 or you’re somewhere in between, it really is YOU who keeps me tapping away at these keys, thinking up new blog post ideas and researching and photographing everything I come across that I think you might be interested in too.

Quite simply, without your support, this blog wouldn’t – couldn’t – exist.

So thank you thank you thank you!

While I’m holding the virtual microphone, I’d also like to thank all the brands I’ve worked with this year for their support – they include   Olay/Vogue, Frankie 4 Footwear, Soul SongFrock Me Out, Ruby OliveCreswick Wool, Boden Clothing, Elk Accessories, Birdsnest, Bohemian Traders, Canningvale and Menorca Sandals. I’m a big fan of all your labels and it has been a great pleasure to wear and share your lovely products with my audience.

To my gorgeous shenanigators crew, thanks for putting up with all of MY shenanigans, which of course include the endless Instagram photos and an extra five minutes every time we leave the house or eat food.

An extra special shout out to Mr SnS too who is The Instagram Husbo Above All Instagram Husbos. In related news, I won’t be surprised if a self timing iPhone tripod is in my Santa sack.

I’ll reflect a bit more next week on the year that was later, but in the meantime, here are some snaps of Christmas here at Shenanigans HQ.

So to you are yours – may you have a very happy, relaxed and safe time together over the coming week.

I know this time of year is not always easy though, especially if you’ve lost someone dear – for us, it is our first Christmas without my Step Dad – so if Christmas is a sad time for you or someone you know, please know you’re not alone and I’m sending you a virtual hug. This post might resonate or be really helpful too (thanks for sharing it Megan).

Finally, if you’re sharing Christmas with a loved one who has dementia, you might also find this post about how to make Christmas dementia friendly useful reading.

I’d love to hear about your Christmas – do tell!
