I’m eventually back on the blog- after (supposedly) ‘studying for exams’ and the craziness of Christmas! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas full of food-comas and family time! It was so nice just to spend some quality time at home in front of the fire watching all of the Harry Potter films, but I think I’ve had enough lazy days at this stage and I’m ready to start planning 2018! It’s hard to believe that Christmas is nearly over and we’re coming to the end of another year. 2017 was a fantastic year but obviously there were some difficult times too. Things don’t always work out the way you want them to, but I am a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason” and that if things are meant to work out, they will. So even though 2017 really tested me at times, all of the good stuff outweighs the bad, and I think it has made me even more grateful for what I have. If there’s one quote that sums up 2017 for me, its a good Dr. Suess one-
That’s not to say I didn’t cry in 2017, I did – a lot, but I had so many happy moments and amazing times in 2017 that I just want to appreciate the year I had in its entirety. Anyway seen as this will probably be my last post before the new year, I wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone who supported me throughout the year since I launched the blog. I have been so lucky to have had some amazing opportunities this year, both at home and abroad and I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!
So here’s a few photos of my highlights of 2017, unfortunately I don’t have photos of some of the most important aspects of 2017, but sometimes you can’t capture everything!
Moving on from all the soppy stuff, and onto more relevant issues, I’m on the hunt for a new handbag for 2018! I actually got a present of a Michael Kors crossbody for Christmas so I really shouldn’t be looking for another bag, but it’s quite small so I need a new everyday bag. It’s a great time to be handbag shopping as most of the bags below are on sale- even more of an excuse to splurge! Anyway these are just a few of my favourites- as practical and impractical as they are!
