Hi everyone, Happy Christmas week! Can you believe it’s less than a week until Christmas day? I arrived home to Ireland on Saturday morning and I’ve been loving every minute so far. I love Christmas Day, but it’s the lead up to Christmas which I always appreciate most. All my family are already here at home and my friends are arriving throughout the week – so it’s very exciting!
CLUSE, a brand I’m so thrilled to be working with over the past few month sent me this beautiful black and gold watch to style in this #TimeIsToBeShared themed-post in the run up to Christmas. When you live away from home, the catch-ups with loved ones at Christmas mean more than ever before. As we get older, we get so busy with our own lives that we often don’t spend enough time chatting to or spending time with friends and family. But then Christmas comes along and fixes everything.
As Kaelin and I both live away from home now, I think this Christmas is extra special for our Mom. Did you see her reaction at the airport when we arrived home?? I caught it all on video which you can see HERE. Something I’ll always look back on and smile at :) I’m most looking forward to the lazy mornings at home with family, the nights out with my best friends and all the new Christmas memories we’re about to make! I’m definitely going to try my very best to take some proper time off over the next few weeks and just recharge for the year ahead again. I absolutely love working, but I know how important it is to take a step back every now and again and spend quality time with the people who mean the most.
I know Christmas can be such a difficult time for so many families all around the world. Each and every one of us have absolutely no idea what lies around the corner so wherever you are in the world and who ever you’ll be spending it with, be sure to make the most of and appreciate every single minute.
It’s looking like this will be my last blog post before Christmas! I’ll definitely be back next week with lots of pre-New Years posts, but until then have such a great Christmas week! As usual, I’ll be posting on my Instagram (@retroflame) and Snapchat (Retroflame1) and will of course, also be doing videos up until Christmas Day!
Have a wonderful Christmas,
