A Year in my world...

31 Dec 2015

2015 will very soon come to end which is why I thought it time to sit back, relax and take a trip down the past year filled with pictures, messages and memories that I will forever cherish for the rest of my life. 

Last New Years Eve I was out celebrating dancing round a round-a-bout stopping traffic and the police having a ball! Read all about it HERE. I was convinced 2015 was going to be a year to remember which I normally say every new year but this year I was right! I am ending 2015 on a high, looking forward to the future with new dreams, hopes and aspirations! 
In April the WeAreTheThey hashtag swarmed online social media with women of ALL shapes and sizes sharing the love for their bodies whilst complimenting others all in the reflection of what TV Host/Singer Jamelia said live on Loose Women about plus-size woman! The hashtag is all thanks to Debz @ Wannabe Princess and you can read my two posts from that month regarding WeAreTheThey! (#WeAreTheThey: They shouldn't be wearing & To Jamelia We Are the They!)

The first post Debz inspired women to share pictures of themselves wearing certain that they may have been they can't wear due to size or to share memories of any time they've broken fashion rules! Here is what I featured - Whether it be too heavy for high-heels, have been told to wear flowy tops to hide my belly, not to wear tight clothing, embarrassed to show my arms and the other thing.. not being able show my legs because of the size of me! 

In May it was my dads 50th! 

In July I took the travel bug and flew off to Birmingham for Style XL, a body positivity event organised by Leah Shafik which was one of the best and worst experiences of my life! The best because I met so many incredible women who I have been following and been inspired by for quite awhile.. it was also one of the worst experiences because my anxiety took a major hit. I suffered three anxiety attacks and became incredibly un-confident in myself because of the overwhelming situation of the event and the nervousness! I always prefer to see the brighter side of a situation and am working on getting my self confidence back which I believe it working and will continue to work on. Anxiety is not something to shy or hide away from, it's not even something you should keep hidden or be embarrassed about! It's something you can help relieve and over come with determination! 

After taking a short break from blogging I decided to get very real with OCD in October HERE.

I had an amazing year and I am so ready to dive straight into 2016 and grab every opportunity with both hands.. I'm going to make sure it's an even better year! :D I met wonderful people, had so much fun and and had more highs than lows! 

I hope you have a lovely night bringing in the New Year how ever you choose to spend it and have a prosperous and healthy 2016! :)

Christmas is finally over and for me it never really had a chance to begin! All the traditions and plans I'd been looking forward to this year ended up down the drain. In the early hours of Christmas Eve I fell ill.. I had the chills, sweats and a whole list of everything else that rounded it in a little red sparkly bow. Little to say my Christmas Eve was spent in the doctors surgery and then I spent my Christmas Day in bed which continually rolled into Boxing day.. it's been that way since! My energy's been zapped, I've had no appetite plus I never even got to wear my new £60 worth of make-up on Christmas day... or my new clothes and heels.. It really is the little things. *sad face*
I hope Christmas has been good for you and that you got spoilt rotten! Let me know what you got in the comments and tell me how your Christmas was.

Blogmas Day 4... Jingle Bells are tired...

4 Dec 2015

No comments

Ahh I am currently getting organised and writing up posts for the month ahead and gearing myself up to start my vlogs tomorrow which I am quite nervous about! I've been out doing more Christmas shopping today and keep buying much more than is needed which is making me think I should just quit while I'm ahead and use the money to give into a plan I've been thinking about for awhile which I will be blogging about in two weeks. 

As it's late at night and I am late again with typing this post.. (Promising myself to do early morning blogging next week) I'm going to share a couple more songs I'm currently listening to for Christmas... I heard this on the radio tonight and absolutely love listening to it every year... 

How's your Christmas shopping coming along? Are you listening to any tunes on repeat?

Blogmas Day 2: Jingle Bell Blues

2 Dec 2015

While I try desperately to get better and recover from this stupid bug (I feel myself getting my strength back everyday) I have had alot of food for thought recently.. basically because I haven't been eating and today my appetite came back.. oh what a glorious invention food is! Especially chocolate.. the taste, the smell, the texture! I've missed it! 

Right, back to to food for thought.. and I've missed my train of thought! It's blogmas day 2 and I am not feeling this whole Christmas spirit thing.. I haven't even put my tree up yet which is very unusual for me though I plan to put it up at the weekend and listen to Christmas carols as I do and I also need to start dispatching my Christmas gifts so I can have a nice clear space... clear surroundings for a clear mind! 

Hopefully this weekend I will be more into the Christmas feeling and able to blog and vlog and a litter better! :) 

Have you been taking part in blogmas? Send me a link to your post so I can check it out!

The countdown to Christmas..

The countdown to Christmas has finally begun.. it's time to get organised so everything goes as planned without a hitch.. 

So much for my vlogmas everyday in December as I am currently holled up in bed over coming the worst bug ever and finally feel like I'm getting my strength back (All I've done is sleep the last few days) 

Instead of vlogging everyday I am going to blog/vlog everyday so it's a mixture of blogging and also getting starting into the way of vlogging as I'm not used to doing videos. 

So much for my planning I went to wrap presents and I have no cello-tape good thing I have quite abit of time to wrap them! :) Well now I've wrote this post and used up all the energy I had I'm going back to bed to rest up!

Are you taking part in vlogmas or blogmas? Comment below with links and I'll check them out! :)
