Looking back at my little blog this year I’m proud of it. I’m particularly happy with how my photo skills have improved. It makes me happy to think that I took every one of the above photos-especially considering the photos on my first blog were mainly taken with my iPhone with me holding the product! I enjoy creating things which is why I love having this small little corner of the Internet. When things were tough this year I had this little blog to keep me ticking over. In 2014 I’m hoping to maybe branch into a few outfit posts and maybe YouTube videos. Maybe. I’ve been toying with both ideas for so long that I’m thinking of giving it a try.
2013 was odd, stressful and very scary but it had it’s moments. And when those moments came they were amazing. I met some incredible people, made new friends and traveled a lot. That’s what I’m focusing on. The highlight for me was heading to New York for Teen Vogue Fashion U. After an uneven year I’m determined to make 2014 great.

And finally a big massive thank you to all of you who take the time to read this little blog, it really means a lot to me. 

Here’s to 2014!!
