I started 2015 by going to bed early and completely missing the countdown for the first time in years. I wasn't in the happiest of places and was quite pleased to see the back of 2014 to be honest. As the new year came round, I decided to change this attitude and mindset. Besides, a positive mind equals a positive life. What did I want to do this year? What goals did I want to set and how am I going to achieve them? I was single for the first time in years, I'd just gone part time at a new job to focus on my blog and channel and life was fairly good. Little did I know all of this was ahead of me...

2015 has hands down been my best year yet. Highs and lows of course, but everything that happened shaped and changed me to who I am today. I am proud of me, proud of my channel/blog and proud of all the decisions and risks I decided to take. I met some amazing people and friends for life. Thank you so much for joining me on my journey, here's to an even bigger and better 2016!

Lots of love, 


  1. This is such a great way to round up the year, think I'm going to start keeping a note of dates too! You've had such a varied and fun year, it's been great watching it all in your weekly vlogs. I started weekly vlogging a month or so ago and am hoping to keep it going for as long as you have - it's a great way of keeping a record of everything and will be lovely to watch back in a few years. I'm so pleased that you're entering 2016 in a much happier frame of mind, all the best!
