My Year Review – 2014 | Lifestyle

2014 was a good year for me! I set myself 14 things to achieve in 2014, although I didn’t achieve all of them I am proud of the ones I did managed to achieve. So what did I tick off the list? Well…

started swimming lessons, I’m getting more confident so I can’t wait to carry on with them and eventually be confident enough to swim regularly! I treated my hair well by not using heat on it for a good 7 months, when I finally did straighten it, I couldn’t believe how much it had grown! I also reached 400 blog followers. I never expected that to happen so thank you all for that! And I bought a Canon 600D camera, I absolutely love it and my skills are improving so much. I made some amazing blogging friends including Lauren and Amy! We’re hosting our first bloggers event this month which I’m so excited for! I spent less and managed to save a lot, despite going on holiday too! I ate out more which worked wonders for my social awkwardness and blogged about some of them too! I went on a lot of adventures, thanks to my fabulous fiancé who loves exploring even more than I do! And finally I stayed positive, most of the time.
Most important, I went on holiday… To Mauritius with my boyfriend! And what a fabulous holiday that was, which ended up being the most memorable moment of my life so far. And I couldn’t wait to share my engagement story with you so if you haven’t read it yet, go ahead!

Before I share my goals for 2015 I wanted to share some of my favourite moments of 2014!
