So I have scheduled lots of blog posts and I am finally putting a lot more time and effort into blogging. I have taken lots of pretty pictures of new make up, new shoes, some cute outfits and lots more. I am so excited for you to read them.
Now this is a little bit of a late post for saying January is almost over but I wanted to sum up 2015 in a blog post…it was quite a year!
So one of the first main things that happened in 2015 was I went abroad for the first time of my life! Now a lot of people probably can’t believe I have never left the UK, but unfortunately I haven’t. I went to Barcelona the end of January last year with my textiles class for my final unit. It was quite scary getting on a plane for the first time, but I felt very relaxed being around all my friends. I literally loved being in a different country and I can’t wait to leave England again! You can read all about Barcelona here.
Another thing that happened in my life last year is that I left college! I have to admit I was very happy to leave because I found A Levels incredibly hard. I made some great friends through out college and I laughed alot. I will definitely be keeping them memories in my heart forever.
The start of summer me and my boyfriend split up. Obviously I’m not going to talk about it all on my blog as it is personal and private, but it was a mutual decision. Some things just don’t work out and I have no regrets. I felt like I needed to add this into this blog post as obviously it changed my friends and life style quite a lot. But it also made me such a better and stronger person.
The next chapter that came in my life is I left my part time job, Debenhams. This was due to starting my career in Social Media and Digital Marketing, which definitely has to be a highlight of 2015 because I love my job so much! I made some great friends whilst working at Debenhams which I still stay in contact with and have nights out with now and again. Above is a photo from my ‘Leaving Debenhams’ night out.
Another exciting thing that happened last year was I went to my first ever festival! You can read all about it here. I made some great friends at YNOT and it probably was one of the best weekends of my life, I still say that even now. I have never laughed so much in one weekend and been so happy. I will never forget the memories from that weekend (except the ones that are a bit fuzzy). You can read all about YNOT here.
2015 also brought me one of my bestfriends! Me and Amy did already know each as we both failed in the same Business class at college (oops) but we never really spoke. We went on a night out together because we were both bestfriends with the same girl and ever since then we pretty much seen each other every week, have gone on hundreds of nights out and had so many laughs! I love my bestfriend so much, she has been such a good friend to me and given me some great laughs.
I also turned 19 last year! Wow 19?! It didn’t seem 5 minutes since I was turning 18 and going on my first ever night out. I had a great birthday! Probably my favourite birthday. I went to Sheffield on the Saturday shopping with the girls, then Saturday night we all went to Notts for a night out. None of my friends had been to Notts before so we all really enjoyed it. I remember it turning 12:00 and me screaming because it was officially my birthday.
Unfortunately 2015 took away one of my friends. RIP lovely, you will be missed by so many xxxxx
So 2015 did have its ups and downs, it was quite a busy year now that I have thought about it. I have made some great friends, been given memories I will never forget but most importantly I have learnt to love myself.
Loving yourself is a very hard thing to do, I found it very hard. 2015 taught me to focus on myself and my goals. I am a lot more confident, happier and feel like I have become a better person. It does take time though, I am even still working on it now. But I think it is so important to sometimes in life put yourself first and not others. Think about your feelings and how you are so important as well. Remember that everything happens for a reason and even the worst situations will leave you so much stronger.
I hope you are all okay and have a great and healthy 2016.
I look forward to focusing on my blog again this year.
Love ya all
