NYE

Another year is coming to an end. 2012 will go down in history as a year which had both the best and worst of times, professionally and personally. Needless to say, I’m very, very happy to see the back of 2012 and embrace 2013 with open arms, as it signifies a new start for me. But before we start a fresh new year, I’d like to have a little look back on some of my personal blogging highlights from 2012! Thank you so much for reading and loving Alex Loves and see you in 2013!

Love,

Alex
