NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Goodbye 2015.


WELL WHAT A YEAR THAT WAS...

I've really come to love new year in my adult life, it always does seem to signify a blank slate both personally and professionally (in the industries I've worked in at least). Of course, every day and every month is a fresh start, but there's something about a new beginning and a clear(er) calendar that I find both soothing and motivating in one.

I love making plans for a blank calendar and, whilst doing so, I take the time to look back over the past year. Reflecting on both the highs and lows, working out what went well and where there's room for improvement. I'm always surprised by how many wonderful milestones I've passed when I look back over the past year and this year was no exception. I've made wonderful new friend's who continue to amaze me every day with their kindness, conquered my fear of travelling alone and grown so much both personally and professionally in just one year that I can't even imagine what my life will be 365 days from now.

THIS YEAR I....

Set foot in Paris for the fourth year running - this was also the trip where I met the lovely Tijan!

Spoke on a panel at Beautycon LDN in May - for someone who is afraid of speaking I can't quite believe I did it!

Hosted one Brighton meet up and two London meet ups! (Hopefully next year there will be even more!)

Made two bag investments from luxury brands - Aspinal and Givenchy. Worth every penny.

Flew to Barcelona (alone!) for a four day shoot with Clarins (PINCH ME DID THAT ACTUALLY HAPPEN!?)

Went to Wimbledon in July for the very first time as a VIP!

Nala turned one!

Flew to Los Angeles in July for VidCon

Joined the Gym and actually enjoyed it. My aim is to try to go at least three times a week this year.

Flew to Ibiza in August for two days of incredible experiences with some of my favourite blogging girls.

Went to a very rain Reading Festival in August with the boyfriend, Liv and Carrie!

Flew to Skiathos in September for a week of working in the sun in the Greek hillside with Rosie, Alix, and Fleur.

Landed back in London after my trip to Greece and made my way to London for my first red carpet for the Premiere of The Intern.

Hit 250,000 Subscribers on my channel in September and reached over 1.5 million views on my channel in October - so many zero's!

Was flown out to Florence at the start of September for a dinner with Salvatore Ferragamo - SAY. WHUT. I know. Someone wake me up.

Celebrated NINE YEARS of being with le boyfriend. I cannot believe we're now working towards a decade together and I'm still so smitten and so excited about each and every day with him

THINGS I'VE LEARNT
I've always known it, but this year various events made me really feel in my bones how important it is to make time for those you love and create a really nourishing environment around you. To fill your life with people who make you feel emotionally rich and bring you joy.

I've also learnt that it's okay to reach out more: I never used to be the first one to contact friends. I lacked the self confidence to feel that they would actively want to speak to me, and that my reaching out would be disturbing them. WARNING FRIENDS: This year you will not be able to get rid of me ;)

It's been an eventful year and I cannot believe how much has changed and how much I've changed! So many of the wonderful things have happened because of this space and your support - I already touched on it in this post here, but you really have changed my life - and I cannot thank you enough for that. There are so many of you reading now that it genuinely blows my mind (no really, it does! Due to a glitch, my analytics has only recently showed me how many of you there actually are!) and I hope you've all had a wonderful year too! 

I hope you all have a brilliant NYE - See you in 2016!

  7. sounds like you had an amazing year and had experienced a lot! I like what you said about learning to be with people who make you feel emotionally rich and bring you joy. That's a really important thing, and I like how you pointed that out. Also, the whole self confidence thing with friends. I can really relate with that because I always feel like I'm being a nuisance to my friends and appearing desperate if I reach out a lot. But I gotta get over that fear because real friends won't care bout that and wouldn't mind you reaching out.
    Wish you a happy new year :) hope 2016 will be wonderful for you and can't wait to see what the new year brings for us all

  28. I am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for over 9 years and we had two kids. thing were going well with us and we where always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treated me and the kids. later that month he did not come back home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he casted on him that make him come back to me. my family and i are now happy again. Thank you Dr. Aluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. He cast spells for different purposes

  33. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at:( Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ),you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: ( +2348071622464 ),His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
