2015 | A Year in Review

I thought I'd take a look back at what's happened over the past year. Grab a cup of tea/coffee/water.. this is a long one.
I think January mainly consisted of revision and exams which isn't much fun at all. It was also my Grandad's funeral which was a heart wrenching day but also full of so much love. I did take a trip down to London with one of my friends to break it up a bit, I'm pretty sure it just consisted of me eating my body weight in giant cookies from Borough Market. It also snowed at the end of January/beginning of February so I took a bit of revision break to make snow angels with my housemate - the only one that didn't hate snow!

Life: My Christmas Day

Hello! Seems ages since I've sat down and written a blog post, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was filled with so much food and I'm definitely in denial that it's actually over. My Christmas Day was pretty chilled as it was only my parents and my brother. The past couple of years we've had various things going on (this year was no exception) and opted for a quiet christmas with just the four of us.

Life: Manchester Christmas Markets

Okay, so I used to really hate Christmas Markets but lately I've rekindled my love for them. Yes it's all a bit overpriced but you can't deny there is a lovely atmosphere that definitely makes you feel festive.

Life: Favourite Things About Christmas

Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I have no idea how I've hardly mentioned it on the blog yet but eeeek I'm so excited! These are a few of my favourite things about Christmas...
1. Food. Pigs in Blankets and Mince Pies to be precise - not together obviously! Then again, I love most christmas food and I like that I can totally justify eating all December long (and into January too)... Ooo and mulled wine, I hate red wine but there's something about adding loads of spices, warming it up and it becomes all kinds of wonderful.

Life: My First Blogging Event #LeedsXmasMeet

I went to my first blogging event at the weekend, I was a bundle of nerves before but managed to find some lovely girls, Bev and Billie on Twitter who were also going from Sheffield making the whole experience slightly easier. We met at the station and made our way through the gale force winds in Leeds to the venue.
The super lovely Rhianna organised the entire thing and I was so impressed with the whole afternoon, seeing as I had never been to a blogger meet before I didn't really know what to expect. I wasn't particularly happy with my pictures from the day as my camera was just not playing ball, I also got really massive camera envy. But here's a few so you can get an idea.

Beauty : My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

I'm by no way a beauty blogger but I do really really like lipstick. If I'm wearing one it tends to be pretty bold, for some reason I can't be bothered with anything else. I'm either wearing a dark lip or nothing at all. Winter is the perfect time to crack out the dark lip. Here's a few of my favourites...

Life: Winter Box of Lame Review

To say I was little bit excited to see this outside my door after a four hour coach journey back from London is an understatement (I may have squealed) I love subscription box type things and when That Lame Company popped up on my twitter, I think I saw Charlotte's review on her blog for the first Big Box of Lame, I was super happy to see they had a Winter box. You may have seen me mention this on instagram the other day so I thought I'd write up a proper review of it all.

Life: Getting Festive in London

I planned this blog post before I'd even gone to London expecting to take lots of pictures. I ended up being so busy I forgot to get my camera/phone out to take many pictures. My brother cooked me a kick-ass curry on Friday night after my 4 hour coach from Sheffield to London.
