Woah, who's this? Yes, it's me. I am back onto blogging again. 

Weeks and weeks went past, and I always had thoughts to write a blog post but never actually got around to writing them as I was so busy with uni work. Being in third year really takes it's toll on you - you don't realise how quickly time is passing by you. 

So if anyone was eager for another post of mine, I'm very sorry. I've been a very busy bee, working through my first semester of my LAST EVER YEAR (eek) at university. But now that's all done, hopefully I can write a load of stuff for you to read over the Christmas break before I go back and it all becomes so hectic again - expect me to put blogging aside again. 

I thought I'd take this post to go over 2016, a little review if you will. Of all the things I have achieved, things I regret, stuff like that...

So 2016 started off on a massive high - it's when we got our little pupper, Hollie. She is such a sweet and loving dog, and such a big part of the family. I never realised she was the thing missing from our home, and god I am so grateful we have her. I'm going to take this opportunity to show you my pupper. 

I also turned 20 this year. I had a pretty awesome birthday - I was completely spoiled, and got hella drunk and ended up in the shower fully clothed with three other people. All-in-all it was a very good night that I will never forget.

The next couple of months went completely downhill. I became severely depressed in the job that I was in - constantly bullied and belittled by my manager. I ended up crying when I had to go to work, crying when I got home from work, and crying all the time in between because I could cope with that, or the stresses from university. I ended up on medication, and it was honestly one of the worst parts of my life to date. However, looking forward, I got myself out of that job ASAP and got myself a new job dog walking - which I absolutely adored. 

Around this time (April/May), I finished my second semester which in turn meant I was finished with second year - I don't have any exams for my course, so the last few months in my house were so chilled out! Once that time was up, I moved into my new house!

This had all happened by early July. On the 12th July, I hit one year with my boyfriend. I haven't really talked about my boyfriend all that much on here - it's my first ever relationship, so it's so amazing that it has gone so well so far. We celebrated our one year with a few days away in Brighton - somewhere I had never really been before. I loved it, it was so romantic and cute, and I had such an awesome time!

August was also a pretty awesome month! I spent a last minute weekend away in London with my sister volunteering at Summer in the City - a convention for YouTube. I loved it so much more this year, spending time with all the other volunteers and what not. Such a great experience, and I can't wait to see everyone again next Summer! The day after SitC was when I went to a Q&A with Jenna Marbles at the new YouTube Space, which was also incredible!

September was important, as it was the month that I started this blog. I started this blog as a way of getting my love for everything across, and as a way of connecting with people who share the same interests! 

The rest of the year has pretty much all merged into one! It's been such a fantastic year, with it's ups and downs, but what year isn't like that!?

I'm hoping for 2017 to be so much bigger and better:
- I want my blog to grow, and for me to reach a wider audience (and to fully understand what all this blog jargon is). 
- I want to also start a YouTube channel for my make-up obsession - tutorials, reviews, etc etc. I know there's already a billion out there, but I love to be creative, so making videos is perfect! 
- I want to go on more adventures
- I want to know what I'm doing and where I'm going with my life (somewhat) by the end of this year (seeing as I would have completely finished uni at that point).
- I want to lose weight - there's the big cliché. I said on this blog when I first started that I was so motivated to lose weight, and I haven't been keeping up with it at all. But in January I am going to join the gym, and prove everyone wrong. Motivation is there even more so now, but with Christmas just around the corner, there's no point in starting it now
- I hope to stay vegetarian, and hopefully be stepping closer to being a vegan (expect a lengthy blog post soon about this)

There's soooo many more things I want to come out of 2017 that I haven't mentioned, or maybe haven't even thought about it yet. 

I hope you all have a banging Christmas, and that Santa brings you everything you have ever wanted! I will have another post ready for you soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Have a good one!
