Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!


I honestly cant believe that today is the last day of 2013,i say this every year but this year really has flown by which is quite scary! This time last year i had just left home again to fly back to Finland for my last 4 months of exchange, it really is insane! 2013 has been an amazing year for me, the biggest highlights for me were finishing my exchange year in Finland which was undoubtedly the best experience of my life, surviving a long term relationship, i managed to treat and get rid of my acne which was terrible this time last year and of course i started my blog and have now been blogging for 5 months!! My only regret is not starting blogging earlier as i have had such a fun time doing it since i started and have met some of the nicest people, so i would like to thank you for all of your kind support and for reading my blog! My blog initially started as somewhere to write about everything really but it has slowly evolved into more of a personal style blog, i love documenting what i wear daily just for people to see what i wear, i definitely don't wear the latest catwalk looks so i don't see what i wear as an inspiration to anyone but when people say they really like my style it really does mean a lot to me! 

The only negative for my year has been that i have had very poor health, i ended up in hospital in Finland (very scary!) with almost pneumonia,nothing is as upsetting as being ill but when you're by yourself in a foreign country where you cant tell them what is wrong in Finnish nothing can compare, but it made me grow up significantly and made me realise that i can do anything when i put my mind to it. Also after living with severe stomach problems for months, even years i have finally been diagnosed with IBS, since then i have still struggled to control my condition and i am still managing now, i am just thankful that i now know what is wrong and i can move forward! Sorry for the rant but i also thought it would be a chance to let you all get to know me a little bit better! Anyway on with a few of my resolutions for 2014 which i have split into two categories!

1.Post regularly whilst at uni, 3-4 times a week
2.For my blog to continue to grow
3. Attend a LFW event
4. Continue to interact with all my lovely readers
5. To attend another bloggers meet
6. To makeover my blog layout
7. Make more time to read and comment on others blogs

1. Graduate from uni
2. Stop worrying!
3. Organise some travelling and holidays
4. Get a job for after uni
5. Get my IBS under control and stay well
6. Keep a jar of happy memories of 2014 
7. Spend quality time with family,boyfriend and friends

I hope you enjoyed reading about my year and my resolutions and i will try my best this year to complete every one!

I wish you all the happiest and healthiest new year that anyone can have!
