My Favourite Moments Of 2012

2012 has literally been the best year for me, ever! With every year that comes and goes, it always has lots of highs and lows but I've ended it extremely high. However, someone robbed my iPhone last night, thieving bastards!

Dropped an A level at college and realised I didn't want to go to university, but enter the business world instead. Focused on The Beauty Closet and YouTube.

I got a new job in a children's clothing shop owned by a family friend.
Became friends with Megan in my photography class who turned out to be one fabulous friend this year!

Turned 18!! Started going out more and realised I needed to start living life to the absolutle full.
Had a weekend break away and went to Disneyland Paris with my mum. We bonded and laughed, it was a brilliant holiday.

The company I worked for opened shop number two and I was instantly transferred doing bigger and better things. This motivated me and I worked more and more rather than going to college.

Finally completed my A Level exams and left education forever!! Such a good feeling.
I met Rich on a night out and became his girlfriend 3 weeks later.
WON 'Business Woman Of  The Future Award’ for Hampshire, became runner up for Dorset and The Beauty Closet was recognised as a semi-finalist for the 'dot com' award.

I made partnership for YouTube after making videos for a year and started getting paid by Google.
Went to Thorpe Park with Rich, lovely weekend overcame my fear of rollercoaster’s properly!

I had time off work to enjoy a fantastic summer down at my beach hut with everyone I love.
Took a weekend break away and went to Birmingham to meet my YouTube friends and subscribers for the first time!

I received my A Level results! An A in photography and E in English, was really chuffed despite everyone believing I wouldn't do it (and as I wrote nothing in my actual English exam and didn’t attend lessons for months!) I proved them wrong.
Went to London with Megan to my first event for She Said Beauty and did plenty of shopping!

Went to Turkey on holiday with Rich, had the best time ever! Plenty of cocktails, giggles and tans!
Got a promotion! Manager at the store I work at.

The Beauty Closet turned a year old, and what a fantastic year it has been!
Went to London again shopping with Dionne and Hannah :)

We opened a shoe department and a third store at work. Lots of late nights working!
Bought an iPad mini and used it every day since.

Another holiday! Went Skiing for Christmas in Morzine, France. The skiing and snow was amazing, food was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed time with my family.
I celebrated New Year's Eve in Bournemouth whilst Rich turned 24.

So to sum this up as best as I can, I have truly loved every moment of this year. I achieved more than I ever set out to. I lost a lot of people who I thought were close to my heart, was completely betrayed by a 'friend' and I lost trust in people, especially girls. But I have a message to those so called 'friends'. Your selfishness has driven me to succeed even more, so thank you.

Happy New Year,
Big Kisses,
