Monthly Roundup: November 2015

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE BLOG THIS MONTH?

November went by in a bit of a whirlwind! How is it December already?

We started off the month with some Spain and Italy posts leftover from my adventures in September and October. I still feel like I have a hundred more posts to write about these two trips but I’ll try to give it a rest for a bit!

I also went back to my roots this month, topping up my backpacking category with some general travelling posts.

A few Asia flashback posts also made an appearance in November. (I think because it’s getting cold in London and I’d rather be on a beach!).

I discovered a new fave brand this month in Skinnydip London and tried some of their quirky travel accessories!

Finally, the Christmas spirit has also ramped up! Yay Christmas!

  • Blogger Event: Paperchase SS16. As part of a blogger event with Paperchase I got to style up my very own Christmas tree! Complete with a raccoon in a tutu decoration of course…
  • Christmas Day Down Under. My experience of spending Christmas abroad in Australia – definite pros and cons to consider!

WHAT HAPPENED ON SOCIAL MEDIA THIS MONTH?

Instagram has been fabulous again for Heels with lots of new followers! Here’s my most popular ‘gram of November – a shot of a gorgeous evening on Koh Tao beach…

WHAT HAPPENED IN MY WORLD THIS MONTH?

At the beginning of November I went to my very first WTM event, a massive travel event for everyone in the travel industry. It was pretty overwhelming but cool to learn about the new trends in the travel world.

But the BEST part was that I won a competition! That’s right, I only went and won a bloody trip to Bali courtesy of Garuda Airlines! YES. Literally the first thing I’ve ever won. I’m so excited, so stay tuned for Bali adventures in 2016!

I also went to the Christmas lights switch on at a local village – Stony Stratford. It was really cute with a lantern parade through the High Street!

 WHAT’S COMING UP NEXT MONTH?

Lots more Christmas adventures! Follow my every move on Twitter or Instagram to see what I’m getting up to! I’m also planning my travel adventures for next year, let me know if you have any suggestions!
