As this is my first Christmas blogging, this is my first ever post of the type and I’ve read soooo many good ones already.

After having received such great feedback from he first edition of Behind the Blog, I’m excited to introduce my new guest for December: Gemma from An Ocean Glimmer – let’s meet her now!
“I am Gemma, the blogger behind An Ocean Glimmer, a beauty and lifestyle blog. I’m based in Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City. Alongside my blog, I am a full time University student currently studying Journalism as well as working part-time as a Sales Assistant. I have been blogging for about five years now, but I started weekly blogging just a couple of months back.”
It’s December 4th, and so far I have loved reading all the blogmas posts around. From gift guides and wishlists to traditions and recipes, there are so many interesting reads at the moment. Unfortunately, I’m not taking part in blogmas this year, mainly because I’ve only been blogging for 3 weeks, and I only really discovered blogmas about 10 days ago… #facepalm.
But! I have been so inspired by everyone’s posts, that I thought I’d round up my 12 favourite blogs of blogmas that you just have to read:

I am super excited to announce my brand new monthly feature “Behind the Blog”, in which I get to interview some lovely and inspirational bloggers!! This month, I’m honoured to have the lovely Beth Foust, the lady behind everythingandnothin.com as my first guest – let’s meet her!
“My name is Elisabeth and I am the blogger behind Everything & Nothin’. I am a beauty and subscription box blogger.

It’s mid November, the nights are drawing in and winter is practically upon us. It’s the season to curl up on the sofa with a hot chocolate heating up our cold noses, a hot water bottle nursing our cold feet and of course, wrapping ourselves up in a nice warm blanket.
