2016 has been an amazing year. It started out with a trip to New York, and deciding to complete another 365 challenge, this time on Instagram.
I’ve really enjoyed posting a photo a day, and only had to miss two days when I got sick in October, which I’ve made up for.
January kicked off with me getting into makeup and starting to blog more. My blog has been through many phases alongside the phases I go through in my life, and I must say that beauty blogging has opened many more doors than any other subject I’ve written about. I’ve met so many people and a fantastic community of like-minded individuals.
February continued in this fashion with the start of my beauty favourites blogs, and I also saw the amazing film It Follows for the first time.
March began with seeing my Book Club girls, well half of them, for the first time in ages, and discovering Pretty Little Liars. I took a trip to London for my niece’s birthday
and I spent a week off work turning my spare bedroom into a wonderful walk in wardrobe!
In April, my Mum wrote a guest blog which people really loved, and I started my dedicated blog twitter account. I also discovered some fabulous podcasts and House of Cards became my new favourite tv show.
May teased us with 18c weather followed by horrid winter again. I visited London a few times, went for my only run of the year
and Ariana Grande released Dangerous Woman! I also became obsessed with all things coconut scented.
June was a big month – Sarah’s London Hen Party was amazing, followed by her wedding in Cornwall.
We spent a whole week in Cornwall and had an amazing time.
I saw some great films, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Gallows and this blog turned 7!
In July we said goodbye to Tash the only way we knew – over food! We had fabulous brunch in Dalston followed by cocktails at the John Lewis rooftop bar.
I went to EDC, which was wildly out of my comfort zone but really fun
attended a family wedding, Secret Cinema Dirty Dancing
and watched Stranger Things.
August was filled with movies, including Finding Dory and Suicide Squad for my birthday. I bought my new Sony a5000 and we went to see Romeo and Juliet at Waddesdon Manor as part of the Luna Cinema festival.
We also saw the Hot 8 Brass Band at a local venue and danced the night away.
In September, though I didn’t blog a huge amount, I announced my brand new YouTube Channel! I also got very excited for Florida, celebrated by 10 year wedding anniversary and spent the weekend at The Savoy in London!
October was the month of Disney World. We took the trip of a lifetime and had a blast.
On my return I got the sickest I’ve ever been, and thankfully recovered within a week. We went to see the Harry Potter play
went to a Bad Company gig and celebrated my mum and dad’s ruby wedding anniversary.
November was the return of the Gilmore Girls and I also attended Jurassic Park Live at the Royal Albert Hall.
From the end of November to present it’s been all about Christmas and New Year. I visited the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, and vlogged.
It’s been an amazing year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds. There’s a lot of change in the air, and I’m really excited about it all. Who knows what I’ll be writing in a year’s time? Here’s to another great one 😀
