Erin and Lyle’s Gorgeous Destination Fiji Wedding Image by Jonathan Ong

I feel like it was only a day or so ago that I was exclaiming “I can’t believe it’s Friday already!”. And here we are, Friday at our feet. It always seems like the last few months before Christmas rev up and speed by, reminding me every day that I shouldn’t leave my gift shopping to the last minute. I continually ignore these reminders, preferring to remain blissfully blinkered by the warmer days and lighter nights. Do you get organised months in advance, or are you a fellow frantic shopper?

If you have some time to spend today, grab a tea or coffee and enjoy this week’s Friday Roundup from our specialty blogs!
