I’m on hiatus! 

I’ll be heading to the States for the next 3 weeks for a White Christmas! We’ll be travelling from East to West coast for the short time span, and it’s my dream come true! I have a few scheduled posts to go up but won’t be replying to comments or commenting on other blogs until I get back on January 12.

I’ll be tweeting a lot though, so if you want to hear about my adventures follow me @jeannius88

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and the happiest of New Years. See you all in 2014!

  1. That's awesome! Road trip! I love the west coast, I've only been to San Diego though, and a day trip in L.A.

    Great job with the blog…and to think it's only you who do everything, there's three of us but I think you are able to focus more on the blog than we do :-/ Hopefully, with the new year I can up our game.

    Have fun Jeann and have a wonderful holiday 🙂

  2. What a fun way to spend Christmas, Jeann! I hope you have a safe trip. And congratz for achieving so many things in just a short span of time. You really are a wonderful blogger and I'm glad to have met you. And you really deserve such a wonderful break. xD

    We will be missing you. As for me, I am not even sure if I could go on a holiday hiatus. The Yuletide season is my only time to put more effort on blogging. 2014 might become a busy year for me again. Hahaha.

    Advance Happy Christmas, my friend! <3

  3. YAY! Great work on the blog this year, Jeann! And I'm sure you'll have an amazing time in the US. You totally deserve some time off, and traveling to make your dreams come true is always fun.

    I look forward to when you come back, though. Even if I wish you a very Merry Christmas, and safe (and fun!) travels.

  4. Congrats on an awesome year! You've achieved a fantastic number of things.

    And enjoy your holiday! I'm so jealous, I wish I had the money to go to the states. Though I'm not jealous of the you going in their winter part. No. Cold is evil (and that's QLD cold, I'd never handle snow).

    Can't wait for you to return!

  5. Oohh? A trip to the States sounds very exciting! I hope you have a good time! 🙂 I only found your blog a few months ago, but it. is. downright. awesome. (One of my new favourites…just sayin'.) Congrats on the successful year! And congrats on reading so many books! So awesome. 🙂
