I was thinking back last night on what an amazing year this has been for me. As I've probably mentioned before I left 2011 a little bit sad. I thought 2012, would be the same, I've never been more wrong in my life! It was possibly the best year of my life, and I really hope 2013 is just as good to me.
I was lucky enough to be taken to Miami. It was a wonderful holiday, and a gorgeous place to visit. We went for 10 days, and it was lovely to get away from the doom and gloom, that is January! We ate loads, we got loads of sun and we dropped until we dropped!It's was truly a wonderful holiday definitely one of my favorites of all time!
This little space on the internet was born! I still can't believe it's been nearly a year. I never thought how much I'd enjoy blogger or that I'd meet such wonderful friends. The opportunities I've had thanks to this blog has really been amazing, and I don't take any of it for granted :) I never knew nor understood how much, I'd enjoy writing this blog. For me it was never about "freebies" or about how many followers I got, I blogged because, I felt I'd something to say, that wasn't already been said.
March was a pretty quite month, although myself and a friend went to Paris at the end of the month, where we enjoyed three days of sightseeing and unbelievable weather. It was roasting hot. It's always nice to get away from everyday life every now and again, and got us both excited for summer! :) I really love Paris, and would love to stay there for a summer, and spruce up the 'ol french. I love nothing more than sitting in a quaint cafe, and people watch. Parisian's are probably the most stylish people ever!
April: From what I can remember, April was a rainy month! I had just gotten into the swing of blogging, when I received an email from Fabulous Magazine, as they wanted to do a feature on Plus Size Fashion Bloggers. It was an amazing experience taking me right out of my comfort zone. Being in a national magazine in nothing more than your swim suit is a rather daunting experience, but I'm delighted I did it, and met lovely lovely people.
July: I went on holiday's with my family to the Czech Republic in July. It's not somewhere I'd ever think to go, but I'm glad I did! It was a lovely relaxing holiday. We had a couple of days in the countryside, then we visited Prague for three days. I also braved the world in a bikini ;) I had an absolute fantastic holiday, my only regret is actually joining them for two weeks instead of one! Nothing else major to note from July really, just the post holiday blues!
September: I graduated from University College Dublin! It was a great day, and couldn't of been happier. I also visited London, and meet up with some lovely blogger friends. The weather was lovely that weekend, and I had an absolute blast, I'm heading back in February and I'm so excited already! I went to see Dara O'Briain in Vicar St towards the end of the month, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my first ever comedy gig, and was laughing from start to finish.
October: Okay October was another busy month. I saw Cheryl Cole in concert, I went to Galway with some friends and it was of course Halloween! Halloween is definitely my favourite time of the year, the days becoming much shorter, wrapping up all cosy in your new Winter coat and now having an excuse to get that delicious cookie hot chocolate!Work this month was hectic! Thankfully, I managed to balance out work and play as best I could this month! Otherwise I'd of gone insane! Sometimes I work so much, that I forget I've a life too!
November: It was my Birthday this month whooop! I turned 23, which at first I was a bit daunted by, but I had a great few days of celebration, and it was made special by my lovely friends. I also went to Birmingham for a meeting, for exciting things in the New Year! I can't wait to be able to share it with you :) November was bitterly cold, and I wrapped up warm in my new tartan coat, my parents got me for my Birthday :)November for me flew by!
December: A VERY busy month, with working in retail, you never get a quiet moment during December. I had a few lovely days off going out for dinner with friends, doing Christmas shopping, celebrating friends birthdays! I also had my first ever official bloggers meet up, and met some lovely Irish bloggers! It's such a nice community, and everyone is so supportive of each other. I had a lovely Christmas even though I was a bit under the weather, but had a lovely day with the family!
Phew, what a hectic year! Hope you guys enjoyed this post <3
I hope you all have a wonderful 2013, filled with happiness, love & prosperity.
