Happy New Year | OOTD

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous night last night, I know I did!

I’m so glad to put 2015 behind me and move into a fresh year, it needs to be a good one. As for New Year resolutions, I don’t really have any, I turned my life around quite a bit at the end of last year, so I guess I should just carry on from that. Maybe lay off the sugary foods a little bit, but definitely to not let people get me down. That is something I must carry over from last year. 2015 was tough on that front, around late November I decided to no longer be afraid of what a few people thought of me and what I was doing.  This really did make my life so much better.

So if I was going to have resolutions, it would to be stronger in myself and to not be tempted by sugary foods!

Anyhow, I mentioned in one of my Blogmas posts that I found an adorable dress for New Years Eve in Miss Selfridge’s sale. I promised that I would show you this later on and here it is!! I must apologise for the photo quality… I had had some wine previous to these being taken teehee…

I think this is such a pretty dress and falls so lovely! I watch the TV series Vikings and Lagertha has dresses in this style (minus the shiney bits and a little bit longer) so I must admit, I did feel a little bit like a shield warrior last night. It is very flattering and I absolutely love the neck line. It’s just the perfect party dress!

You can purchase the dress here… I got the size 8 petite!

Let me know what you think and what your party outfit and resolutions are…

Much love ❤

Blogmas: Christmas Day | My 2015 Highlights

This is it! Another year gone and what an ace year it has been. I can’t believe it is over already, time seems to be whizzing by almost too quickly. I thought I would put together a list of my highlights of this year.

1. Seeing meteorites in Scotland and tracing the steps of Ghost Adventures

2. Interviewing Lights and being published in the Louder Than War music magazine 

3. My visits back home

4. Becoming really close friends with some amazing people

5. Having my first Caravan holiday

6. My sister weekends

This year has definitely been a rollercoaster of emotions and quite challenging nearer the end, but what has happened has made me stronger and has made me believe in myself a lot more. I have realised to stop caring too much about what people think of me and to do things that make me happy. From this, I have been less scared to venture out of my comfort zone and have made some amazing friends in doing so. I’ve also come to see the people who actually care for me, and as eye opening as that was, in some ways it has released me and I couldn’t be more happy for it.

I have learned to love life, live every day as though it could be my last and to do things that make me happy. Honestly, don’t surround yourself with people that get you down. Go out and make new friends, as scary as that might seem, for me it has been the best thing that has come from the past few months.

This year has taught me how lucky I am and to always count my blessings.

Thank you all for reading my blog, following me and supporting me throughout 2015. It means the world.

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and I will soon be back in the New Year.

Until then… Eat, drink and be merry!

Out with the old | 2014

Hello everyone!

I am back again after having some festive fun. I hope you’ve all had an amazing Christmas and have got everything you could have wished for. I can’t believe another year has come and gone, my first year at University is half way through and we are now on the home straight to summer!

It has to be said 2014 hasn’t been the best of years for me personally – there are a lot of things I’m glad to be leaving behind. However, on a positive note there’s also so much I’m looking forward to in the New Year.

I’ve met some amazing people in the past few months which I can’t wait to see again after the Christmas holidays. 2014 has taught me a lot about myself. I feel as though within the last couple of months I’ve changed slightly as a person. A few people I know passed away nearer the end of the year – all far too young – which has opened my eyes and made me think a lot about my beliefs, life and how fragile it is. My perspective on how I’m living has changed, I’ve learnt not to worry as much, go with the flow and see where you end up. I know it’s a common saying but life definitely is too short and you never know what’s going to happen so you might as well live for the moment and make the most of the smallest of things.

I have a good feeling about 2015, I really hope it’s something special. 2014 ended with an awesome unexpected turn which I’m really wanting to continue and hope it’s the sign of an amazing new year…

We’ll have to see.
