GOODBYE 2015 … HELLO 2015

Hey beauties, long time no speak. I know, I’m rubbish. But I do have a fairly reasonable excuse. I started a new job and wanted to put all my efforts into that for the first few months. So I’m back and raring to go with lots of content ideas for 2015 πŸ™‚

Some of you may remember the post I did last year remembering 2013 and preparing for 2014, where I decided to keep items throughout the year to remind me of the day in the future. Well I stuck with it and am going to share with you some of the highlights of my year. But first I thought I’d share with you, just what 2014 has meant for me.

2014 was a year that at the start I was dreading, see at the end of 2013 I was bogged down with anxiety and just imagined this year to be yet another struggle. But I have to say, I was wrong. yes there were days I didn’t want to get out of bed, or I thought life couldn’t get any worse, but I pushed through and can safely say that I’m excited for what 2015 has to offer. In 2014 I lost a few friends I would of considered close. But I realised that toxic relationships are really damaging. Especially if you suffer with mental health, it can be very draining. I think thats just a part of growing up though. I got to experience some AMAZING things. I visited portugal with Elliott, Abu Dhabi with my sister and went on a big family holiday out to Mallorca. I gained so much confidence back this year, enough to move forward with my career and start working for a magazine. I really am excited for what 2015 has to offer. I’m ready for anything. Here’s a few highlights of 2014.

At the start of the year Me and my bestfriend went to see Beyonce. She was absolutely incredible.

In March I went to London twice, with my blogging bestie Holly from I2StyleΒ first we went to London Blogger Fashion Week, then we attended the Vogue Festival and managed to see the Masterclass seminar. It was amazing to get an insight into the fashion industry and was really inspiring. Holly and I then went for a lovely meal at Las Iguanas before heading home.

In April Elliott and I went to watch The Amazing Spider Man 2 – one of my favourite films πŸ™‚

We also went to my nephews 9th birthday party – It was a skating party, we had a great time!

I also went to see Jeff Dunham at the LG Arena in Birmingham, he was absolutely hilarious

In May I went to see McBusted, my god was that a blast from the past! We had an awesome night dancing around to all the old school hits and reminiscing. I also went to see The Kooks, I used to love them in my teens!

Then me and elliott went off on our little road trip, if your interested I vlogged the whole thing. Vlog: sleeping in the car and flying to Portugal. We had such a great time!

Then a week after we got back from Portugal, I flew out to Dubai with my sister for a week in Abu Dhabi. It was the most incredible holiday of my life. We stayed at the 5* Yas Viceroy hotel, and had a complete week of feeling like queens! I also filmed some of this. You can watch it here. Unfortunately I had to override my original music.

We then went to see Eminem on the 11th July and stayed in londin for the night! We had such a great couple of days!

At the end of July we went on a two week family holiday to Mallorca, it was great to spend quality time with my sisters and nieces and nephews. I filmed a lookbook while I was on there.

In August we went on camping trip with Elliott’s family for a long weekend at Shell Island. It was beautiful and so relaxing!

In September we saw Lee Evans, ill be honest, it wasn’t as good as previous tours but it was a good laugh and worth it considering he’s now retired.

I also attended the Birmingham Blogger Meet organised by the lovely Abbigayle Warner. There I met Paige, Hayley and Rach who I stay I touch with now πŸ™‚

We later attended the Costa Musical Bingo halloween event. It was such a great night! i’ll definitely be going again. Its brilliant for a night out with the girls.

Holly and I went to see Ed Sheeran in October, He was AMAZING! We also spent Halloween together on a night out, which was great fun!

This was around the time I then left my job. Id worked there for 4 years and it was all very emotional. But it was the best thing I have ever done! I am loving my new job and the experience I’m getting from it! Ive had a crazy couple of months but its been well worth it. now I’m ready to conquer 2015.

I hope you have enjoyed this little insight into my year. I will continue to collect my memories and do the same thing next year πŸ™‚

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
