Christmas, Birthday & New Year

Over a week between posts! As I mentioned previously I spent a week in Melbourne and came home yesterday. I then had to work today. Whilst away I was just too busy to get a chance to blog (and was having a too good a time). Next time I am absent for a while you can check my Twitter or Instagram for some updates. 

Christmas card from my brother


I know this is late but MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had a lovely day with family and friends and got some fabulous gifts. I had a great day with family. Lunch was at one uncles house and tea at the others. 

At lunch I got to hog my cousins baby - Chase. He is adorable and I am now super clucky and really want a baby, especially if it is as happy and adorable as Chase. 

Chase and I on Christmas Day. I am so in love with him and wanted to keep him but his Mum & Dad wouldn't let me... I can't wait to see him again. Yes I am a little obsessed with him! 



One year ago today I started Luxury on the Lips. It seems surreal to have been blogging for a year now. I have enjoyed it imensely. I have met some lovely people through blogging. I am really grateful for all the support that I receive off other bloggers and my readers. 

Over this year I have gained over 140 GFC followers and over 42,000 pageviews. I truly appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and comment or chat with me. 

THANK YOU for reading Luxury on the Lips, I look forward to blogging for years to come. 

I had intended to hold a celebratory giveaway but I couldn't decide on what I wanted to have as a prize. I will hold a giveaway soon though. I promise. 


New Year

The birthday of this blog also signifies the impending New Year. 2012 for me has been a good year. I have been healthy (as has my family), had some great times, turned 21 and gotten my first proper job. I also like to think of Luxury on the Lips as an achievement for 2012. For me there are lots of things to look forward to in 2013 epecially my job and this blog. I hope to succeed in my work and for Luxury on the Lips to grow.

I hope 2012 has been a great year for you all. I hope 2013 exceeds all expectations and is the best year yet for you. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

While I was away I, of course managed some shopping. Where the family and I stay is conveniently located opposite Eastland Shopping Centre (yes, it was chosen because of its location). 

Sadly or possibly luckily, there was an error with my first pay and I was not paid the full amount, therefore a trip to Chadstone was not justified. I have consoled myself though with the news that when I am in Melbourne for training (in February) the hotel I will stay at is less than a 10 minute walk from Bourke St Mall and I will have around 4 weeks pay to blow...

How was your Christmas? Any big plans for 2013?
