My Good, Bad & Ugly Of 2017

My Good, Bad & Ugly Of 2017

2017 is almost over and coming from somebody who didn’t think they’d live past 16 (don’t ask), this was the year I turned 22. Whilst this is a reason to celebrate, the year of 2017 generally hasn’t been a good one for me & despite having good moments, I’d go as far as saying it has been my worst year yet. I am very much a reflective person though &…

What I Got For Christmas 2017

What I Got For Christmas 2017

Here’s to the annual What I Got For Christmas post. I love these posts, both to create and to read because 1) I’m a nosey cow and 2) they give me ideas of things I can add to my wishlists or gift ideas for others throughout the year. I did very well this year again. My 23 items blog post was a very good idea because I now own many…

23 Reasons Christmas Is The Best Time Of The Year

23 Reasons Christmas Is The Best Time Of The Year

Christmas day is fast approaching and I for one am all for it. It’s genuinely my favourite time and I’m going to reflect on all the reasons why Christmas is the absolute best time of the year. 1. The pure excitement from children on Christmas Eve and during the walk down the stairs in the morning. 2. All the family pretending to find the cracker jokes funny because everything’s happy at…

23 Things On My Christmas Wishlist This Year

23 Things On My Christmas Wishlist This Year

I hate people who drop hints yet here I am, basically hinting. I’m basic in the sense that I’m really easy to buy for and to be honest, a card with a cute message makes me happier than any present ever could. I would, however, be blatantly lying if I said I’d be ecstatic to receive just cards on Christmas day while everybody else sits around opening gifts. I have…

11 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

11 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

Despite all the pretty typography posts telling me to look ahead and not behind, unfortunately, I’m very much the type of person who reflects… a lot. Hindsight is the best but worst thing and there’s plenty I wish I could go back and tell myself. Lessons learned and all… 1. Education is Key – To be fair, I’ve always known the importance of education, my problem is that I like to put…
