Hello amazing friends!
I hope you had an amazing Christmas and enjoyed this special time of year in which we can all spend time with those closest to us. I can't believe 2014 is almost over, but I am really excited for 2015 because it is a fresh start and there are so many things I want to change and now is the opportunity.
As this is probably going to be my last post for the year I wanted to update you all on what you can expect from me in the early months of next year!
I have had so much fun already blogging and I really can't wait to continue. Out of all the decisions I made last year, good and bad, I am glad I made this one as I have held back from making my blog for a long time and I am so happy I made this choice!
1. definitely more of my own writing
I have shown you all a little bit of my writing but I would love to continue with that
2. Begin new series and continue with old series
I would love to continue with the 50 ways to change your life series as I know it brings at least a small amount of happiness to some of my readers. I also want to start new ones like a 'how to' series or a 'DIY 'series

Hello everyone! The year is finally coming to a close and that means I will have just a few posts until the new year. You all know how much I love writing and I also love photography. I wanted you guys to receive my writing in a way that you could actually remember it so I made this ( look at the image above). Then I got thinking that I could do so much more with this. I could make blog buttons and badges and so much more! I also thought that if you wanted to share them, then if they were an image it would be so much easier!

Hello all! I hope you are having a fantastic day! I was planning on doing a different post toady but then I thought I would do something a bit more special to celebrate my first month of blogging!!!
I am so grateful for all the support you have given me so far, your wonderful comments and those have you that have followed my blog and taken the time to read.
After much thought I have finally decided that I would make a post to let you guys get to know me. I have only done a few posts so far and I don't think they all show case my true personality. Although this post won't tell you EVERYTHING about me I am hoping I can show you all a fair bit! Please enjoy, although I am sure reading about me won't be that interesting, think of it as meeting a new friend for the first time!
1. zodiac Sign
Cancer, but I think I prefer the cosiness of winter compared to the burning heat of summer
2.5 things I love
food is my first love, music ,shopping, laughing and of course blogging

Hello again everyone !

I don’t know about you, but it feels like this week is really dragging. Its only wenesday but it all seems so stressful. I felt like I really need a push to get me through the rest of the week! I am so excited because on Friday most of us students that live in England will be going on Christmas break (yipppeee!!)
A lot of you seemed to really like the last post I did in the '50 ways to change your life' series so as a midweek treat I thought I would seek out a few more inspirational quotes that wil hopefully help you through the rest of the week, enjoy!

Hello again everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend! For those of you first time readers (Welcome) you may not be familiar with the post I made back in November about me looking back to remember 2014. It involved me sharing with you all one of my favourite memories of the year. Today, I am back continuing with that.
2014 for me, was vital for developing and defining self identity. I was definitely more about forgetting about how I come across on the outside and really establishing who I was on the inside. I guess you could say it has been a long and at times challenging journey. For me, it really meant that I had to begin to put myself out there, fighting that feeling that  is always holding me back. There is still so much I want to learn and improve about myself , but for now I am pretty proud of the progress I have made so far.
I wanted to share with you all some of the things I learnt this year, I thought not only could it be a personal reflection but it could encourage you all to look back at what you have accomplished or look for to what you would like to. Please feel free to share in the comments what you have learnt this year, what has really made 2014 special to you and maybe even what you would like to do better next year. I always love hearing what you guys have to say!

Hey Guys , I am back again with one of my spontaneous mid week posts. On a side note, I am really glad that many of you enjoyed my Christmas gift guide and I hope many of you find it useful.
change, may it be an idea, habit , decision or situation, has the powerful ability to change your life. The smallest of changes over time, can grow and develop into huge impacts. some of us seek change, a greater sense of meaning self identity, new possibilities, new adventures, excitement. The possibility for change is never out of reach.

Hello all!  At last we have reached Saturday! On a normal day this would be the day that I  finally get the opportunity to sit back and relax, unfortunately studying has got the better of me this week. I am only on blogger today because I love you all already and I wanted to give you something back because today is two weeks since I started this blog and I am so grateful for all the support you have given me !
As we are fast approaching Christmas ( less  than 20 days!) It brings me great joy to present to you my first mini Christmas guide .And no, I have not left any
potential male readers as I wanted to spread that Christmas spirit to everyone. On with the show!

Hello my lovelies , I hope your week has bee going well. I wasn't actually intending to post but there are just a few things I want to let you all know.
If this is not your first time visiting my blog ( if it is welcome to my blog please read this post) you may have noticed that there have been some slight changes. This has happened firstly because I believe that if I want to truly enjoy blogging my blog needs to best fit me, I want my blog to be something I can be proud of and the layout comes into that. Also I have received some constructive criticism from some of you all who informed me that my blog needed some improvement, which is fine but please all just bear in mind that I have only just started blogging around under 2 weeks ago and it is still a work in progress.

Hello all, I hope your week has been amazing! At last the weekend is here!

As the year is coming to a close and the doors of 2015 are slowly beginning to open,I think it is important that we go back and remember the amazing things we did that made 2014 what it was. This year I really wanted to open my eyes to new experiences and broaden my view of the world.

what better way to do this than to travel. This year I visited Paris. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE. We went in the summer yet it rained and rained day after day. However, we were all determined to enjoy the experience. I visited so many places that I have seen in pictures and dreamed that I would one day visit. Romance, fashion and fun.I have seen it all.

Hello all, I hope your weekend was magical!

I told you I had some festive surprises in stall for you! I am literally obsessed. Tinsel, mince pies and tree lights a revolving around my mind endlessly. Lets be honest with ourselves, we all think about Christmas about 70% of the year  but it isn’t until the winter jackets come out do we really feel it is acceptable to really celebrate. I mean really. Christmas tress, parties, advent calendars. The lot.

I have always felt that Christmas is really is the most glorious magical and wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. There are ,and I warn you this may shock you , some scrooges out there who want nothing more than for the Christmas trees to be pulled down, the lights to be switched off and for the weather to be 20 degrees again. If this is you, then read on.

A passion for writing

 Three times I have tried to start a blog. Yes, three times. Each and every time I have failed miserably. I can tell you it is all very well enjoying the content of your favourite blog whilst holding a cup of tea and a biscuit by actually WRITING a blog is a serious commitment.

 Just recently, I was asked to write a speech about what I am passionate about. I was shocked at how difficult I found this. I paused for a second. I had to think long and hard about my life. Why didn't I have a passion? I looked endlessly through Google:" what am I passionate about?" "Things to write a speech about?" "What is my passion?" how was the internet supposed to give me these answers?
I tried the obvious ,cliché passions trying new things, overcome challenges, music, making new friends. I found it difficult to write even a paragraph on any of them. Then I thought to myself again: What in this world do you enjoy the most? the answer was writing. Not only was able to talk endlessly about it but it got me thinking what I could do with this new found passion.
