2014: Year in Review

Wednesday 31 December 2014

I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by, it feels like yesterday that I was sitting at my laptop typing up my 2013 post! So much has changed this year, I have lived with Tim nearly a whole year, and become an Auntie by association to a beautiful little girl, as well as packing my sister off to University... Life never really stops moving does it! Let's see what I have been up to this year shall we?


I posted a Youtube video all about my biggest make-up addiction, eye shadow palettes. My collection has actually grown since this video was recorded...

I celebrated my one year blogiversary on January the 29th, and decided to giveaway a W7 'In The Buff' palette, what this space for my two year blogiversary!


I posted a video all about having a Mini Tom Jones in My head... OK that sounds weird... I was talking about suffering with something I like to call Lyric Completion Compulsion, check out the video to find out more.

On the 4th of February I wrote my 23 Before 23 list, which was a list of 23 goals I wanted to achieve before turning 23. Also at the same time I reviewed my 22 Before 22 list and saw how many things I had managed to tick off... Soon I will be reviewing this list and writing my 24 Before 24 list (Yikes)

On the 7th of February I shared with you all what I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday, I can honestly say I was a little bit spoilt for my birthday!


Tim and I moved in together in March, so I finally felt like I had a bit more space, and started to feel a lot more relaxed. I also started the #100HappyDays Photo Challenge, to document how much happier I was feeling.

For the first time ever I took part in a Bloggers book swap, and got given some Amazing books to read by a fellow blogger. Including Delirium by Laren Oliver, which actually turned out to be one of my favourites.

I also reviewed a new Monthly Hand-Made Polish Subscription box from my friend Kerrie. Each month was themed on a book, and came with a copy of the book, and some handmade polishes based on that book. Unfortunately Kerrie had to stop making polish, which you can read all about here.


I started the 'A-Z of Me' challenge, and I'm currently up to F... You can read all of them so far here.

On the 8th of April I finally committed to something that I had wanted to do for a number of years, the Race for Life...

On the 26th of April, Tim and I welcomed to little cuties to our family, and we haven't looked back since. I don't know what our lives would be without constantly having to clean up sawdust and poo that they flick out of their cage...


This month I took part in Blog Everyday in May, and you can check out all of those posts here.

In my second A-Z of Me post I wrote all about my boyfriend. Tim. If you are going to read this one I suggest you fetch your sick buckets...


June was a pretty quite month for me blog wise to be honest. I did however manage to do a Primark Haul.


I finally jumped on the hype and bought some Make Up Revolution products, and I was very happy with them too!

A year after graduating I wrote a post reflecting on everything that had changed for me in that whole year...

Tim and I finally got around to using his Christmas Present (An Owl of Dates) and had a date night where we made Ice-cream and gave each other compliments.


In August I went to Summer in the City, and even celebrated Tim's birthday. but for some reason my blog really suffered this month, and I don't have very much up!


September was another slim month for me blog-wise, however I managed to post a Youtube video every week, and I wrote a post compiling my efforts, which you can check out here.


I attended my first LUSH blogger event for their Halloween/Christmas collections, and I was thoroughly spoiled, even coming away with a gift bag full of free goodies. I literally cannot wait to attend the next LUSH event!

October was a month that I really seemed to get back into Baking, and I shared with you all the things I had managed to make. Since then I have made even more yummy bakes, especially in the lead up to Christmas!


Yet another A-Z of Me post saw me sharing with you my lovely Jack Russell, Maizey, who is the absolute love of my life...

In November I also started a new feature on my blog, 'Sum-up Sunday' and it's still going strong!


Tim and I tried a Tesco Finest Chocolate Tasting Experience and enjoyed every single second of it.

I took part in a Blogger Secret Santa, and my Secret Santa got my character spot on! Seriously... even my sister was impressed.

This year has honestly amazing for me, so much has changed, including me to a certain extent. I cant wait to greet 2015 head on and see what it is going to bring me. I've already become an auntie by association in 2014, and in 2015 there are two more babies on the way for me to meet! Tim and I will be moving into a new place in March, possibly our own house, and to top it all off I finally plan to do what I have always wanted to do. 

I hope you all have an amazing New Year, and I'll see you all in 2015!
