Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!

2015 has been a stand out year for me, especially with this website, and I am hoping that 2016 has just as much in store for everyone else. 

I'm particularly excited about this time of year, as my husband and I are flying to Mumbai on Boxing Day and then travelling down to Kerala for 2 and a half weeks - thank you to everyone who has kindly emailed me recommendations. 

So for the first time since starting this blog (almost 4 years ago!), I am taking time off, not scheduling any blogposts and taking the opportunity to really unwind. Mainly because it will be too hard to be relevant with all the sales going on, but also because sometimes it's good to have a break. 

Hopefully I will return raring to go and with tons of fresh ideas for The Frugality in 2016. If you have any ideas of anything you'd like to see more of, or less of, then please email me - I'd love to hear from you.

Of course I will be on Social Media still, so for daily updates follow me on InstagramTwitter, Facebook and even Snapchat for more raw footage (!) @thefrugality

Otherwise, see you in the new year!

    Very much looking forward to your return to The Frugality.

    Thank you also for featuring the Pom Pom flats from Next. I ordered them before Christmas and they arrived with the sale price applied.

    1. Hi Rachael -great news on the blog -sure you'll find it addictive! One tip - where you mention the bargains (like the New Look tassel bag), I would hyperlink it so people can click through and see the bag you're referring to -creates much more engagement (we always want to know more!). So glad you got the pom pom flats - might wear mine to dinner tonight! x

    2. Thank you for the reply and thank you for taking a look.
      I'm about to move on to Blogspot so that I can combine images more easily.
      Will definitely experiment with the hyperlinks.

      Thank you and looking forward to your next post x

  7. Happy new year! With this horrible weather I'm desperate to find a stylish new umbrella to replace one that just broke - any suggestions on where to look would be excellent! Hope you post again soon! - Steph

    1. I don't know about stylish but I always get my umbrellas from Uniqlo x


    Wishing you a lovely day.
